What to Eat, Drink, and Do in Paris

There’s plenty to see on a trip to Paris, and countless resources trot out the same itineraries: the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, Notre-Dame, the Louvre. Don’t get me wrong—you’ll definitely want to see those places. They’re famous for a reason, after all. But what if you want to shower some lesser known attractions with some love…

Touring Spreewald – Germany’s First Rye Whisky Distillery

“Eine Frau die Whisky trinkt?” I looked up from swirling my fresh pour of Single Malt to see the incredulous eyes of a 40-something-year-old German man staring at me. He gave me a look of bemused admiration as I nosed the amber liquid and then took a sip. “Lecker,” he offered.

Should I Visit Athens?

Ah, Athens. One of the world’s oldest cities. Where classical, graceful, historical meets gritty, graffiti-splattered, and dirty. Athen’s port, Piraeus, once the major import/export center and navy base for the ancient Greeks, now launches ships daily outward to the pristine Greek Islands.
