Visiting Belfast a Second Time: A Travel Experiment

Belfast, and all of Northern Ireland, has come a very long way in a very short period of time. In the not so distant past, I would never have considered visiting the capital of Northern Ireland; memories of past violence still too vivid. Those days are long over though and today Belfast has emerged as one of the hottest travel destinations in the world. The city of Belfast is colorful and dynamic, seemingly in a state of progress and upward mobility. Times have never been better for tourists to...

Stalin's printing house in Tbilisi

A short subway ride from Liberty Square takes me straight into the heart of the Avlabari district, an area of Tbilisi’s old town that houses the modern, glass-domed Presidential Palace; the Holy Trinity Cathedral; and the shabby residential blocks where the Armenian community once lived. I’m here, on the eastern side of the Mtkvari River, head down, staring at my phone, hoping to finally understand the directions to an undistinguished house, below which, a young communist named Iosif Jugashvi...

Most beautiful breweries in Europe

Back before the global craft beer craze, opening a brewery was quite a rare and monumental event, often necessitating an entire warehouse, a wing inside a monastery, or a full city block. Those who started the breweries of Bavaria, Belgium, and elsewhere in Europe may not have foreseen their brewhouses becoming architectural staples — but, fortunately, society tends to love historical buildings about as much as it loves beer. By visiting these gorgeous European breweries, you can get your fix...

Amazing Christmas window displays

One of the most enjoyable parts of the holiday season isn’t gift-getting, or gingerbread house-making, or tree-decorating — it’s perusing those eye-catching Christmas displays in shop windows. This time of year, stores go all out to make sure you’ll check out their wares, even if you never actually set foot inside the store itself. From Broadway-inspired scenes complete with costumes and props to glitzy, high-end displays, some of these windows are sheer works of art. Here are nine of the mos...

Tasting durian for the first time

You’re probably familiar with durian. The Southeast Asian fruit regularly makes headlines thanks to its putrid smell, which is so strong that it’s banned on Singapore’s rail network, as well as many airports and hotels in the region. It smells so bad that it’s been known to ground flights. If you haven’t had the fortune (or misfortune, depending on your point of view) to encounter durian in person, think about what it would smell like to blend onions with sweaty socks. Despite the stench, the...

Casa No Name Boutique Hotel in San Miguel de Allende

Can a house with no name really be a luxury hotel? Well a small one maybe, but yes. Casa No Name in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico got its name from a previous resident, but it's not a short story. The original owner was a prominent priest, one who commissioned a mural in his nearby church that is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The current owner worked on restoration of the painting, bringing the story full circle. That would be history enough, but this hotel was also the home of Deborah T...
