I A FRENCH person who is able to have a proper chat in English, but apparently, I am one of few. According to Jakub Marian’s map of the percentage of people speaking English in the European Union, only 39% of French people can hold a conversation in English.
1. Your “seeing the city from your window seat” moment Photo: Doc Searls “We’ve begun our final descent into the Los Angeles area, where dreams come true and the local weather is friggin perfect…” Okay, I made that last part up, but I wouldn’t be surprised one bit to hear it.
I visited the ‘Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’ over the 2016 Christmas period. Many photos were deleted by a North Korean soldier when leaving the country, but I had backups.
I moved to Spain a year and a half ago from California. At that time, I had taken a couple trips through Europe, but nothing permanent.
Can I make a living from sailing? That’s a question many of us may have asked when the office walls start to close in on us.
I’D JUST RETURNED to the boat with my two Argentinian students – both grinning ear to ear and eyes set wide with the exhilaration of those experiencing scuba diving for the first time.
My time in Nepal I SPENT ALMOST SIX MONTHS in Nepal last year and achieved a lifelong dream of going to Everest Base Camp and sleeping in a tent on the Khumbu Glacier.
The time Iceland almost killed me They say that if you don’t like the weather in Iceland, wait five minutes and it’ll change.

Working remotely sounds like fun (and it is!), but it can be a logistical nightmare sometimes.

1. Tacos A post shared by OHJ Food Travel Lifestyle (@onehungryjew) on Mar 15, 2017 at 2:03pm PDT Texas has street tacos you can buy from a variety of food trucks and restaurants, but our true passion is getting visitors addicted to breakfast tacos after a crazy night out in the Lone Star State.
EVERYONE KNOWS THE APPEAL of Washington, DC: monuments, museums, and, you know, it being the nation’s capital and all.
I LIVE IN THE POORER END of Red Bank, New Jersey. It’s not a particularly exciting place to live. The other side of town has cool shops and bars and even a few good theaters, but here, most of the houses are kinda rickety looking.
I’M READY to bet that you’ve only heard of one thing about the Faroe Islands: the Grindadrap. It’s too bad that this place and its inhabitants are reduced to this one event — however controversial it is — because this group of 18 islands in the North Atlantic has a lot to offer to the travelers who come and visit with an open mind.
Yosemite has to be one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Standing next to El Capitan is enough to dwarf your aspirations and consider your insignificance in comparison to the forces of nature.
What makes a great romantic travel destination? Awesome outdoor adventure options, great food and nightlife, and a kind of cultural uniqueness to create a romantic vibe are all good starting points.
