OK, so obviously you wouldn’t be pondering what to do in Ljubljana if you weren’t either there or planning to go. Lucky you! A truly great destination, Ljubljana is one of the most exciting places you can possibly visit. The Slovenian capital is filled with over 10,000 cultural events each year. It has some of […]
I was feeling guilty about the chilaquiles I’d just eaten. Not the fact that they were fried in oil, slathered with cream and sprinkled with cheese. I’d made a conscious decision to go down the road of High Fat. Nor did I feel bad about spending the 35 pesos (about $3 US). They came with […]
I arrive at the side door of the Pittock Mansion, a historic French Chateau in Portland’s West Hills and knock on the door. Even though this house-turned-museum is currently closed, I am allowed in, which makes me feel special.

The dense, broadleaf forest offered a feast for the […]
I didn’t want to make the trip, almost succeeded in avoiding it, which I would have regretted! There were a lot of challenges coordinating the trip and I was milking all the reasons not to go. I mean who looks forward to business trips where you go to interesting places, don’t get to do anything […]
Have you ever felt this feeling of adventure lust just after you have woken from a deep slumber? Well I have – a dozen and one times already. I immediately called up my friends to check who would be available on that one lazy Sunday morning. Fortunately, two of my college friends had the same […]
Triathlon training generally involves six days of exercise—two days a week for each sport. Over several months, even with the variation, the routine can become a bore. This particular day was a cycling day, and it would turn out to be one of the most memorable of any, and it had absolutely nothing to do […]
