Save Place
Guanacaste Province, Bagaces, Costa Rica
While most people travel to Costa Rica for the jungle ziplining, waterfall rappelling, and famous surf beaches, traveling to rural villages like Bagaces in Guanacaste can have its own rustic charm. On the streets of Bagaces, you won't find any...

108 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Seattle has become a cupcake town; you can (and I have) had entire conversations debating the merits of various cupcake shops. Cupcake Royale is one of the best, and definitely worth a visit. They have rotating monthly flavors (pictured is the...

1501 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
I'm hesitant to even put "food court" and "sushi" into the same sentence, because that summons up a mental picture that hardly does Sushi Kudasai justice. This friendly, unpretentious, mom-and-pop sushi shop is located in the heart of the downtown...

1009 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122, USA
Bar hopping around Capital Hill one afternoon, my friend and I stopped by Big Mario's Pizza for a slice and a beer. The New York style pizza is cheap and delicious; the beer selection is diverse, and if you're lucky, you'll meet this pup who's one...
Save Place
85 Pike St, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
locals and tourist alike congregate here to purchase fresh flowers, fruits, vegetables, books, fish, french cheese and antiques, to say the least. The variety is endlessly entertaining and refreshingly authentic.

305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
The recently opened Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle is one of the most amazing art experiences I've ever had. It was one gorgeous room after another filled with Chihuly's work, each room with a theme like sea life or flowers. The rooms...

1118 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122, USA
Unicorn is one of my favorite places to take visitors because there's just so much to look at: the lurid circus-painted walls, the costumed and accessorized taxidermy, the lavishly painted bar that seems to have been pulled off a carousel. During...
Save Place
1428 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Taking just the 'right' wrong turn on a visit to Pike Place Market can land you in Post Alley, where spearmint, wild cherry, and tropical punch bubble gum drizzles down the window panes and grape, peppermint, and lemon ice gum-cicles form from...

Pont des Arts, 75006 Paris, France
Across the Seine, the Pont des Arts (built 1804, rebuilt 1984), the Pont-Neuf (1607), and the Pont au Change (1860)...Through the ages, the bridges of Paris have always been places to cross, to rendezvous...
Save Place
172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris, France
And of course I am referring to having a coffee in Paris. The Cafe de Flore is located on Blvd Saint Germain, in the area where the likes of Hemingway, Fitzgerald and so on used to hang out and write American classical literature. If you're on a...

40 Rue Pierre Fontaine, 75009 Paris, France
Near Montmartre this carousel has been enjoyed for generations. The ticket taker to me was an important part of the scene and I seemed to catch him and the carousel at just the right moment.
Save Place
46 Rue du Bac, 75007 Paris, France
a favorite Paris activity is to just walk and walk and window shop. The Parisians have a flair with their window dressing that always makes for wonderful photographs - this is one of several posts of my favorites.

Carrer de la Marina, 253, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
I've always loved pictures of the exterior of the Sagrad Familia in Barcelona, but finally seeing the inside was spectacular.
Save Place
La Rambla, 91, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
I love to just walk around the Boqueria, buy some fresh fruit or food from Bar Pinotxo, and watch the vendors arrange their goods and the (other) tourists walk around and photograph it all.

828 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, USA
If you love books, a visit to the world-famous Strand Book store is a must when you go to New York. The store is most famous for having 18 miles of books which can be overwhelming when you first walk in but everything is super organized on all...

Flatiron District, New York, NY, USA
You don't always have to rush in NYC. Take the time to explore in the shadows of the famous landmarks. This is where beautiful things often go unseen.

31 St Marks Pl, New York, NY 10003, USA
They say New York is the 'City That Never Sleeps' so of course there must be a place in the city where one can get, drunk or sober, tattooed at any time of the day or night. Enter: NYC Kulture. This isn't the place you schedule months in advance...

Illinois Medical District, Chicago, IL, USA
The Wrigley Building

1060 W Addison St, Chicago, IL 60613, USA
My work takes me to Skokie, IL--a suburb of Chicago--every so often, and on this particular trip I took the time to actually see Chicago. Having only tacked on 48 hours to my stay I crammed in Chi-town's biggest attractions as best I could. To me,...

The Ferris Wheel on Navy Pier.

South Loop, Chicago, IL, USA
Concert goers from all over the world travel to Chicago to see the lollapalooza music festival. There is a wide variety of musical types to be found here. At Perrys tent each year, the emerging genre of dubstep is played. After a tornado warning,...
