Warmoezeniersweg 20, 9000 Gent, Belgium
Went over to Brugge the other day to see the ice sculptures and also had a walk through the city. The main square was lit up very nicely and there was an ice rink right in the center. The weather was cold but the atmosphere was poetic.

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
My family and I moved to Chennai (Madras), India in late July, 2012. Until we purchased a car two months later, auto-rickshaws were our mode of travel (thank Ganesh we eventually found our own regular 'driver'). I loved this simple message on the...

Thirumalai Nagar Annexe, Perungudi, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600096, India
Fresh in that it's just out the ocean, not fresh given the fact that its sitting in the sun as witnessed by the umbrella. While I'm all for eating local products, this just seems like a recipe for 'dehli belly'

1920 N Forest Ave, Orlando, FL 32803, USA
While Orlando typically inspires images of amusement parks, the city is also home to sites that are completely separate from the manufactured worlds of Disney and Universal—such as the Harry P. Leu Gardens. The urban oasis teems with...

401 Biscayne Blvd #MS100, Miami, FL 33132, United States
Here's the thing about a rendezvous. It matters *not* where we meet, or when. Consistency is not our goal. Predictability is not our cause. Routine is not our answer. All we need is you, me, and the best tourist mojitos in town. If we planned...

Southwest Coconut Grove, Miami, FL 33133, USA
Coconut Grove represents old-school Miami. This small pocket of bayfront parks, marinas, shops, and restaurants just south of downtown Miami was one of the city’s first neighborhoods, and people from all over the city are realizing that...

When it comes to ice cream, there is still only one place in Rome. It has been the best since 1900. I love Giolitti not only for the great gelato, but also because it hasn’t changed since I was a little girl. 39/06-699-1243. By Pepi Marchetti...

17 Rue Montorgueil, 75001 Paris, France
So, you think you know Paris? There are hundreds of memorable streets and boulevards in the City of Lights. But, for my money, Rue Montorgueil is the best. It is compact, only three blocks long, with a metro stop at each end. In between, you have...

Stand on the the quais beneath the Pont Neuf bridge—the city's oldest crossing of the Seine—and look up. Staring down at you are mascarons, stone faces that resemble gargoyles, but without bodies. No two of these grotesque visages are the same....
