As Canadian expat in Belgium, one thing I miss is the sea (and good lobster), so when I saw "Lobster Six Ways" on the menu at the House of Eliott in Ghent, I had to try it. Far from the traditional 'crack it open and dig in' style lobster I was...
Barrio Pantasma, Managua, Nicaragua
In the center of Managua, Nicaragua lies the Roberto Huembes market. Selling an incredible array of native fruits, spices and even hammocks, this is a must-visit in Managua. You can even get your shoes shined here. Prepare to be overwhelmed, which...

Medina, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
The walled Marrakesh medina is fascinating for its souks, the bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa Square and the many museums. But in all of the excitement of Africa's busiest city, don't forget to get lost in the quieter pedestrian alleys that twist and wind...
1881 Bao'an S Rd, CaiWuWei, Luohu Qu, Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng, China, 518000
