Before you jet off to the turquoise blue waters of the Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea, here are a few tips that will help you make the most of this magical destination.
Celebrate summer (and cure those Brexit blues) with a toast to some of Europe’s most beloved cocktails, including the English Shandy.
From fresh croissants to croque monsieurs, let your inner Francophile revel at Le District in Battery Park City's new Brookfield shopping center.
I’ve been told by more than one Marylander that for the best blue crabs, you should skip Baltimore and head straight to Kent Island on the state’s Eastern Shore. And that’s what we did.
One of the best reasons to go off the grid is the feeling you get when you resurface back on it, especially if that place is a boutique hotel in a neoclassical townhouse from 1907. The hotel bartender gives us the inside scoop on Spain's favorite cocktail - the gin and tonic.
Perched above the stunning Zahara reservoir, next to Grazalema National Park, El Vinculo is not only one of the oldest olive oil mills in the region but also one of the last to use traditional cold press methods of production.
If you think your Spanish jamon couldn’t taste any better, try eating it after cycling up the side of a mountain for several kilometers straight. Traveling across Andalusia by bike is an incredible way to experience the countryside.
While the Andalusia region is quintessentially Spanish - with its flamenco dancers, sherry drinking and white villages perched upon cliffs - it also blends cultural and natural elements in unexpected ways, keeping visitors to this southernmost province endlessly intrigued.
To kick off the new series Spotted, about seeing the world from a fresh perspective, I interviewed illustrator Ella Frances Sanders about her book Lost in Translation - a beautiful collection of more than 50 illustrated words that don’t have a direct English translation - as well as about her favorite spots in her home of Bath and abroad.

If you’re a Seinfeld fan like me, you may remember “The Butter Shave” episode, where Jerry and George discuss the differences (or non differences) of the Netherlands, the Dutch and Holland. Having lived in Amsterdam for six years...
Six years I lived in Amsterdam and I have no photos to show for it. At that time, iPhones were still a “luxury” in Europe, Instagram didn’t exist, and the idea of toting a digital camera around your own city like a tourist just seemed silly – not to mention inconvenient on a bike.
As I approach my three-year anniversary at my current job, I can’t help but think about all of my career moves over the years.
