If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity in the Swiss canton of Fribourg, The Fondue Train (or ‘Le train retro’ as it is known in French) may be just the ticket. It combines everything that’s admirable about Switzerland – impeccable organisation, a simple culinary concept, good wine and a picture perfect backdrop against which to enjoy it all.…Continue
Three weeks ago I flew from Newark, New Jersey to Tokyo’s Narita Airport. (If this were a facebook status update I’d simply say ‘EWR-NRT’, assuming such snark has not yet become passé.) It had been a while since I’d flown –six weeks almost – so it took no time for the incongruous wonders of air travel, like the…Continue
A bracing wind gushed into the narrow recess carved out of rocks, muddling the prayer flags, which had joined hands to cross the adjacent gorge. A cliff stood tall in front, cradling a monastery on its lap. A wave of chants cascaded from a distance soothing the mind into a trance. An artist’s fingers captured the stunning vista…Continue

1) Have you ever gone alone to a hotel bar in Paris, Seoul and/or Budapest and been mistaken for a hooker?
2) Do you have a luggage docking station in your home?
3) Do you always ask for extra pages when you get a new passport?

When one thinks of German cuisine, images of platters of pork sausages, fried potatoes, and saurkraut come to mind. The reality is not so far off though the above images are more associated with the southern German gastronomy. The city of Munich even offers…Continue

I can be a real cheapskate sometimes.
So when my travel buddy and I were in Arequipa, Peru, and she asked if I wanted to check out the Santa Catalina Monastery, I initially took a look at the entrance fee and scoffed. 35 soles (12$) to get in? I had better things to spend the money on - like dinner!
Besides, just walking around a city is always free. And isn't that the most interesting kind of sightseeing?…

Rambling through the streets of Bukit Bintang, our stomachs were now begging to be satiated. The smells emanating from the Spanish Tapas bar, German Pubs and Iranian restaurants were inviting, yet not enough to excite our desire for adventure and discovery. The thrill was in unraveling the mysteries of South-East Asian cuisine, and simply doing what the locals would do. That meant looking for street hawkers bent over their sizzling woks, stir frying local delicacies for the hungry onlookers.…Continue
Haggling is not for everyone and not everyone is good at it.
True hagglers know that it is not about undercutting the seller or over charging the buyer. Haggling is the ancient art of negotiating a mutually beneficial deal over fine and often blurry lines.

With a departure date looming the anticipation is intensifying at an unnerving rate.
No, it isn't the beginning of an impending adventure whose supply of exhilaration leave me wetting myself. The Grand Canadian Hitchhike is drawing to a close, and my flight bound for London is a mere week away. Much I've missed the homely comforts of my flat, the…

Those of us who were here in the 1990’s remember Torstrasse as a dilapidated, run-down avenue dividing the historic district of Mitte from the then equally shabby residential district of Prenzlauer Berg. Back then the taxi drivers still liked to refer to…Continue
