Catacombs and Crypts

If you are quiet and openminded you can sense the souls of those who were here before us. I first felt the energy when I visited the Catacombs. Although actual bodies no longer lay in rest there the Catacombs are full of those spirits who once resided t

Top places to stay in South Beach, Miami

When looking for a luxury beach vacation it’s hard to go past South Beach Miami for its combination of beautiful beaches, warm climate, and things to do. South Beach is the southern end of Miami Beach, which is an island off mainland Maimi. South Beach is famous for its Art Deco architecture, and along Ocean Drive you can see these pastel-colored buildings lit up in neon just like in the TV shows and movies. It’s a popular place for celebrities, so the chances are good that you will see someone...

Do You Have the Brocante Bug?

  How to recognize the brocante bug:   The person infected with the brocante bug usually is not in bed sleeping on a Saturday or Sunday morning.   Their homes have a certain look about them.    A person who has the brocante bug usually stops the car if they see an old table leg, or a patch of fabric, or worse a peeling-paint-ruin-of-a-thing sticking out of a dumpster.   Usually, someone suffering with the brocante bug knows the only cure is to keep on going to antique markets, of second-hand...

Londres 38 – Santiago’s Creepiest House

The scariest movies aren’t necessarily gory or full of mask-wearing dudes chasing potential victims armed with their weapon of choice—a disturbing atmosphere or a theme that taps into our deepest fears can keep you awake at night long after the credits rolled. Santiago’s creepiest house is a mansion located in an otherwise tiny, lovely neighbourhood, barrio París-Londres. It’s actually just a couple of cobblestone-paved streets behind the former orchard of the Iglesia de San Francisco, one of th...

Clemenceau's slippers

I made (again) a visit to the Clemenceau Museum. It’s a small museum in the 16tharrondissement, actually the rather modest flat that Clemenceau occupied as from 1896 until his death in 1929. You have the feeling that nothing has changed, that everything is exactly as it was when he lived there. Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) is one of the most remarkable men in French history. Medicine doctor, writer, journalist… but especially politician (Prime Minister during WWI). This is not the place...

Kohima in 24 hours- Places to visit

Engulfed by hills, Kohima is a bustling city nestled in the north eastern part of India and is known for its popular Hornbill festival. The city which is the capital of the state of Nagaland was also pivotal during the Second World War as it was witness to the English- Japanese treaty. Presently Kohima doesn’t portray any glimpses of the colonial times and has all the characteristics of a modern city. However, it has a few attractions apart from the Hornbill festival and the beautiful interi...

4 Reasons to Plan a Trip to The Island of Nevis

I love islands and it’s not necessarily for the reasons you might think. Island life, whether it’s in the North Atlantic or the South Pacific, is different from the rest of the world. Secluded and self-reliant, the communities that have emerged from these rocky enclaves are each unique and each undeniably special. It’s a small community mentality, and one that I am always eager to enjoy, most recently on the Caribbean island of Nevis. I was down there to see the recent changes to the idyllic Fo...

To save on surgery, out-of-state patients travel to Washington’s Longview

A year and a half ago, Anita Graves’ doctor told her her right knee needed to be replaced. However, rather than undergoing the procedure near her home in Omaha, Neb., where the surgery would cost about $50,000, Graves saved $13,000 by having it at the Pacific Surgical Center in Longview. “It was a miracle, because […]

A Dali-like clock in an abandoned school

Over the weekend, a request for some photographs included the one seen below — an image I have a real soft spot for, both in regards the end result, and the memories associated with it. There’s already a monochrome version on these pages — it was part of a photo series from an abandoned school up in the mountains. A wonderfully atmospheric and incredibly intact old structure that can be seen here. To add to that experience, it’s now almost six years since I took the photograph. Not that long a...

Sleeping Giant: Kauai's Wake Up Call

Nounou Mountain, above Kauai's Coconut Coast, looks like the head of a huge Easter-Island-style statue in repose, and locals have always called it the Sleeping Giant. His nose is the summit, with the chin to the right, and a downward sloping forehead to the left.  The summit hike is a not-to-miss half-day adventure: 3 to 5 miles roundtrip, and up to 1,000 feet of gain, depending on which of three trailheads you select. The east side trailhead is the shortest and probably most sce...

Reader Question: Can You Recover Lost Money From a Failed Trip Someone Else Planned?

A reader of The Gate — who shall remain anonymous — imparted a story to me pertaining to a recent trip on which he was going to travel but was impacted by inclement weather; and he wanted to know if the money he paid was lost for good. A group of people were scheduled to go away to a conference for the weekend; and one person was handling all of the finances and planning for that trip. The coordinator of the conference collected all of the money from the other participants for lodging costs, mea...

How American is Planning to Use Their Boeing 787s, in Philadelphia and Beyond

Last month American said that they've got too much Boeing 787 capacity because Europe is seasonal, they cancelled 787 flights out of Chicago, and because they keep waiting for their joint venture with Qantas to be approved which would allow them to deploy more 787s on South Pacific routes. Last year though American ordered 47 more Boeing 787. So what are they going to do with them? Continue reading How American is Planning to Use Their Boeing 787s, in Philadelphia and Beyond...

Mango, Vanilla & Coconut Layer Cake With Cheesecake Buttercream!

This cake is one of the top 5 cakes I've ever made. It's a production but not impossible and actually a breeze if you make it over a couple of easy days. It has quite a few layers but for a special occasion, Christmas or birthday I highly recommend it. It's a layer of moist vanilla cake layered with a ginger cookie crusted vanilla cheesecake, a layer of mango jelly, a vanilla panna cotta and another layer of vanilla cake. It is then smothered in a silky mango vanilla cheesecake buttercream frost...
