Calle San Sebastián 88, Zona Centro, 36000 Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico
In a neighborhood on the edge of León, walking with a friend, on the way to visit a friend of his, we saw this. Taking advantage of a break in the rain (this was the rainy season), someone had hung these out to dry. It took me a few seconds to...
Airport Rd, Agatti, Lakshadweep 682553, India
If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway, I recommend a few days here in Agatti Island, at the Agatti Island Beach Resort. Agatti Island is a small island in the Lakshadweep Island chain, and is located about 285 miles west of the...
Klapmuts - Simondium Rd, Simondium, Paarl, 7670, South Africa
About an hour outside of Cape Town, Babylonstoren is one of South Africa’s oldest werfs, or farmyards. In 2010, Karen Roos, a former editor at South Africa’s Elle Decoration, reimagined the property as a fantasy farm stay with an...

Bolívar 970, C1066 AAT, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Nothing better than to walk amidst the stalls of San Telmo market on a crisp Sunday. The smell of parrilla wafting through the air, inter tangled with the ever-present sound of tango. And chatter. Nothing you need to buy. Everything you need to...
10400 Ayvalık/Balıkesir Province, Turkey
I loved the varying looks of the Turkish people. This man was no different. I walked around his stand, filled with lovely fruit and veg, but found myself watching him in his tweed jacket and hat. It was May, but it was cool. As he went to light a...
Hveragerði is a charming town with greenhouses, which are heated by the hot water from the volcanic hot springs. At night, these greenhouses lit up the town which you can see from afar. Besides the hot springs, berries are abundant for picking in...
2959 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60657, USA
Heritage Bicycles General Store is so many things: a coffee shop, a general store, and a place to buy a few key items for your hip closet. Most importantly though, it's a place to grab a cup of joe and watch art being created that you can ride...
Tuma-La Dalia, Nicaragua
Unless you rent a car, arriving at La Sombra Ecolodge way up in the mountains of Matagalpa requires a couple of rides in packed chicken buses followed by 45 minutes in a bouncy cab along a semi-paved road. But just look at this little, green guy -...
Lindos 851 07, Greece
Our budget cruise had a full day stop on Rhodes Island. The island is certainly a favourite of mine. The old city is beautiful, but with a whole day, a trip to Lindos is a highlight. The taxi fare is astronomical, so we asked around a little and...
Samana. Dominican Republic., 5, Samana City 32000, Dominican Republic
This secluded beach within the Vista Mare complex is great to escape the crazy metropolis of Santo Domingo and unwind. The cozy apartments overlook the Bay of Samana and the nearby island of Cayo Levantado. Early in the year you can even see the...
