Yesterday was a pretty interesting day, the weather was cool and overcast, with rain coming in during the latter part of the afternoon. A few weeks ago I had booked a meeting with one of the Big Apple Greeters, an organization of local NYC volunteers that takes out-of-town visitors around the city and shows them local sights and shares local information. The service is a great way to link up with a local New Yorker, and best of all, it's free of charge. We were supposed to meet Suzanne, our ...

As a family, we have been visiting Orlando since 1998, where we have stayed in numerous hotels on the US192 in Kissimmee. Anyone who has visited Orlando will know that there is never a shortage of affordable and clean accommodation in this area. We decided to spread our wings a little and make the most of our holidays in Florida. So our third trip involved renting a private villa. Now to some, this may not appeal, but let me tell you something, this is a resource that is not given justice that ...

Surrounded mostly by Caribbean retail outlets, we got a headstart by walking down Flatbush Avenue in the heart of Brooklyn. At Avenue U we grabbed a bus to the west end of Coney Island and started walking along the boardwalk. When you ...

Amit Dobhal December 02, 2005 Some say that Riga is the new Prague. Others consider it an up market alternative to Amsterdam. Its shopping district is referred to as 'Little Paris'. The truth is that Riga, the capital city of Latvia, has always boasted a rich and colourful heritage with cobbled streets, beautiful architecture and exquisite boutiques and it is a melting pot of the very best that East and West Europe has to offer. With travellers now demanding a wider variety of new and exciting ...
