A Road Trip to Oregon: Just Hubby and Me, Part Two

By HomeRearedChef, published on Jan 9, 2013

We shared space and enjoyed alone-time. It was an opportunity to renew our friendship and rekindle the flames of romance. And without-a-doubt it was time well spent. It was a time to rediscover who we were, as we shared food and drink, savoring unique eats.

Saturday 07/30/11: We slept until late morning (a rare treat), and woke up starving. So we brunched at the “Byways Café,” another of Guy Fieri’s recommended eats, as seen on “Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives.” The café was a small and quaint little place, the walls were covered with an eclectic collection of antique memorabilia, and the... (more)

Smoke without Americans

By Anastasia , published on Oct 30, 2012

Well, now, what can I tell you about Tunisia? Let me begin with one striking fact: Americans were notable by their total absence! I was there for over three weeks, travelling from place to place, and came across not a single Yank. I’m not saying that there were no American people in the country, just that I did not meet any.

This is the first time this has ever happened. I’ve travelled extensively across the globe and wherever I go, no matter how unusual or out of the way, there is always America. The absence of American citizens is not really that surprising given the fuss over... (more)

Ana Travelling

By Anastasia , published on Sep 27, 2012

...for a bit. I leave for Tunisia this coming Sunday and will be away for just over three weeks. I’m so looking forward to it, my third trip to North Africa, following Egypt last year and Morocco a few years before.

I simply love to travel; it’s in my blood. We had some wonderful vacations when I was a child, visiting quite a few unusual places. I’ve continued this family tradition. The more unusual the destination the better I like it. I’m not a travel snob, though; I’m as capable as most other people of doing touristy things and visiting touristy places. I like to be ... (more)

Highland Lassie

By Anastasia , published on Aug 7, 2012

I came up to Edinburgh last week chiefly for the Catherine the Great exhibition being held in the National Museum of Scotland but I also arranged with some friends to walk the West Highland Way, a long distance footpath that links Glasgow in the south with Fort William in the north. And walk it we did, not the whole thing, which can take several days, but from Bridge of Orchy to Fort William and then back south by train. It’s by far the most interesting part of the route.

I’ve walked the Way before, in whole and in part. When the weather is good the walking is very, very good and... (more)

Ana’s Coin in a Fountain

By Anastasia , published on Jun 6, 2012

It’s late on Tuesday evening; I’m writing to you from the heart of Rome. It’s not the first time I’ve been. I visited with mother and father when I was in my mid-teens and again in the summer of 2006. It was nice to return after such a gap. It’s not my favourite city in Europe, an honour that belongs to Paris, but it’s more comfortable, more relaxed in many ways, if I can put it like that. My partner had not been before, and as it delights me to be cast in the role of Beatrice, guiding Dante through the celestial spheres, off we went!

It’s all so familiar, the Roman and the Renaissance,... (more)

Paris in the Spring

By Anastasia , published on Apr 11, 2012

I love Easter, I love spring and I love Paris. When I combine the three nothing could be more perfect. I got back from a long weekend in the city yesterday evening, a lovely time in a perfect place, my favourite in all the world. Paris holds no more secrets for me; there is nothing fresh to be discovered; I have been so many times before, from early childhood onwards. Yet it never ever fails to charm.

My parents have a small flat close to the centre, allowing me to explore the city and its surroundings, to develop an intimacy with it over the years. I don’t go as frequently as I used... (more)

Vacationing is Overrated

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 30, 2007

Why do Americans vacation so much? Do we really think it will make us feel better to go somewhere else? Why do we invest so much time and effort into the process?  We're still the same people we are at home. The only thing that changes is the scenery. And then we always have to return back to our mundane lives afterwards. In my opinion, the entire procedure is highly overrated and a real letdown. Besides, vacationing is exhausting, expensive and a helluva lot of work overall. You either have to get on a plane or drive in your car, usually going far away, which means you have to go through... (more)
