Toronto: the city of 140 languages

Growing at a clip of more than 100,000 new residents a year, Canada’s largest city keeps getting larger. But the continued population boom hasn’t changed Toronto’s character. Long known for welcoming multiculturalism and diversity (more than 140 languages are spoken here), the city has also made substantial investments in public transportation and technology, making the city even more attractive to newcomers and Silicon Valley talent. However, it can take time to fully appreciate all that Toronto has to offer, say residents. “The city doesn’t give up its secrets...

Travel in Comfort with a Few Basic Essentials

Traveling is fun, but you always need to take a few essentials with you from home for your own comfort. Your age and physical condition can suggest what to pack for that extended holiday or business trip. The length of your trip is also a major consideration.

Even though it is fully furnished, it may not have a chiropractic pillow that is ergonomically designed for maximum back and neck support. This is important for...

How Provence changed the world of art

On the edge of the quintessential Provençal town of Aix-en-Provence, Mont Ste-Victoire soars more than 1,000m above a vast plain of vineyards, red tile-roofed villages, meandering streams and copses of pines. As I rambled about Aix and its environs, I never tired of its jagged peak lurking – a constant presence as I sipped espressos in village cafes, roamed herb-scented walking trails and admired its changing palette from staggering viewpoints. One time, I simply watched it glow, framed in my hotel-room window at the former 18th-Century country house Le Pigonnet. ...

The confusing way Mexicans tell time

When I first stepped foot on Mexican soil, I spoke relatively good Spanish. I was by no means fluent, but I could hold a conversation. So when I asked a local ice-cream seller in downtown Guadalajara when he expected a new delivery of chocolate ice cream, and he said ‘ahorita’, which directly translates to ‘right now’, I took him at his word, believing that its arrival was imminent. I sat near his shop and waited, my Englishness making me feel it would be rude to leave. Half an hour passed and still no ice cream arrived, so I timidly wandered back to the shop and...

The abandoned island you can visit just one day a year

At 19:30, the ferry left Tingwall Jetty with little indication it was sailing to a place where time stopped long ago. Ahead, on the cusp of the horizon, a whaleback island rose up, caught between surging tides and the setting sun. A little-known, uninhabited isle in the Orkney archipelago, just north of Scotland’s mainland, this was Eynhallow: a place of pilgrimage and ritual, folklore and ghosts. If Scotland had an Atlantis, Eynhallow would be it. As the island drew near, the boat continued its westward chug, passing farmsteads, pastures and peaty fields. The passengers chatted...
