Dancing with Dubrovnik

Jutting out the bathtub-warm waters of the Dalmatian coast, the Croatian city of Dubrovnik is a treasure trove of history, good eating and cobbled alleys that whisper, “come explore me”. The city that once rivaled nearby Venice for medieval supremacy was rightfully called “the Pearl of Adriatic Sea”, and its ancient ring of thick, imposing defensive […]

Silvertone Bar & Grill: Perfecting the Art of Mac & Cheese

At first glance, you might not notice that Silvertone Bar & Grill is there, but it’s definitely worth the second look. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, Silvertone is my new favorite hidden gem. The restaurant is located in a basement on Bromfield Street in downtown Boston, close to a couple universities and plenty […]

The Paramount: Tasty Boston Breakfast Spot

Two words: French toast. I had The Paramount’s caramel banana French toast for breakfast a few days ago and I’m still recovering from disappointment. I’m not at all disappointed in the meal, but in the fact that The Paramount has been ten minutes away from my apartment all this time and I never knew it […]

Living in Dubai: Around and About the BurJuman Neighbourhood

Dubai is a relatively new city that is still expanding and changing. With a growing city comes new residential projects and neighbourhoods, and Dubai is quite well-known for ongoing developments in this regard, along with all the crazy construction and commercial ventures. I live in Bur Dubai, one of the city’s older, central regions. My […]

Cent’Anni: To a Hundred Years in North Beach

I first heard the old Italian toast Cent’anni spoken in The Godfather, a heartfelt wish for living a hundred years with luck and health. This phrase is almost a reality in the Bay area,  immortalized by the hilly streets that come together as San Francisco’s North Beach, the city’s Little Italy neighborhood. Whenever you’re here,  it’s […]

London Neighborhood Overview: Camden

London’s edge takes up residence in Camden, the former home of late Amy Winehouse and the current location for all things cool. As soon as you step off the Northern Line’s Camden Town’s Tube stop, it’s easy to see why the troubled, vintage-loving alternative crooner felt comfortable here. Amongst the grungy rock n ‘roll storefronts and […]

Sitting at the base of a rolling grassy hill in Kensington Gardens, Kensington Palace benevolently guards over the this high-rent district, overseeing summertime picnics […]

The Mysteries of Bushwick, Brooklyn

What happens when you start to describe a neighborhood like Bushwick is that an unwarranted ego-identity begins to pops its ugly head out. It’s easy to conceptualize this place just as it is difficult to begin to describe it truthfully. It makes no difference if you were to paint the local zeitgeist in a negative […]

Connecticut’s Claim to Culinary Fame: A Taste of New England at The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

      If Virginia is for lovers then Connecticut is for food aficionados looking for a taste of provincial New England. Connecticut often gets overlooked when compared to international culinary powerhouses like New York City and Boston. But what distinguishes Connecticut from these urban dining centers is the fact that it does not try […]

Summer for me has always meant hosting visitors- family, friends, friend’s pets, etc..

On one of the most notable days, we decided to visit various Seattle neighborhoods and make sure to stop […]

Rhythm of the Night

“The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs.” -Charles Baudelaire He taps the wooden floor with his heels, gentle at first, growing harder and faster with each flick of his foot, leaving scuff marks on […]

Spring Awakening: Las Fallas 2014

Crack. Bang. Boom. Shaking the palm trees and ricocheting off the thin walls of apartment buildings, firecrackers crash and collide with the pavement. Children scream and chase the sparks, sending  short flickers into the air. In the distance, shots thunder through the air, making hearts beat faster and dogs bark louder. White tented stands crowd […]

Brand-new white Chuck Taylors and gleaming white tube socks.  I couldn’t take my eyes off the footwear on this freshly-showered and optimistic hiker preparing for a multi-day jungle trek, one that I had just completed.  Clearly, he wasn’t sweating the mud-slide trails and hip-deep streams from which I had just emerged victorious, though worse for […]

Sydney is breathtaking, whether you’re walking the pristine coastline, watching the sun go down from Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, or enjoying one of the many views from the harbor itself on a ship. It merits a trip halfway around […]

Lurking underneath the Denny Street overpass, on a barren, grey street lies El Corazon.
