Creative surrender in the Faroe Islands

I had a death grip on the steering wheel. My fingers clutched it tightly as I nervously leaned forward in my seat, my right foot hovering on the brake. I was slowly ringing the Faroese island of Streymoy, driving way below the recommended speed and snaking my way along the steep, craggy coastlines as the dark waters of the North Atlantic churned below. View image of The Faroe Islands are known for their jarring beauty (Credit: Credit: Lola Akinmade Åkerström) “You know what we call this speed on the Faroe Islands?” Olí asked me as I rolled up to his...

10 Things Most People Don’t Know About Toronto Real Estate

When it comes to purchasing a home, there are so many factors to consider. Especially if you are a first-time homebuyer. Why such a struggle if you have never purchased a home before? Sadly, it’s due to financial inexperience in this area. You may not be 19 and trying to purchase a home, but regardless of age, it can still be tricky to purchase a home for the first time. Mostly because the down payment needs to be in the range of 10-20 percent of the total asking price. Additionally, there can be hiccups in the way of purchasing depending on the area you want to live in. Today we will...

Where Dutch directness comes from

I’d only been living in Amsterdam for a year when we met my husband’s friends in one of the many cafes and bars in the city’s famous Vondelpark. We chose our seats and waited, but the waiter was nowhere to be seen. When he finally materialised, seemingly out of nowhere, he didn’t ask ‘What would you like to order’, or ‘What can I get you?’. He said ‘What do you want?’. Maybe it was the fact that he’d said it in English, or maybe he was just having a bad day, but I was shocked nonetheless. My Dutch teacher later explained that...

Take Your Much Needed Break in Sardinia

Famous for its tough beach front trails and all encompassing seascapes, Sardinia is a perfect goal for anybody hoping to make tracks in an opposite direction from everything. In case you’re going back and forth, here are five strong motivations to book your next holiday to Sardinia. Now there are no many travel options to get here, as you can only get here by plane or boat. I personally find flights (both domestic and international) a little overpriced. Most of the Italians and tourists usually choose to travel by ferry, usually spending the night on board, in order to disembark early...

Macaroni cheese’s mysterious origins

There was a bite in the cold Alpine fog lingering over the resort town of Fronalpstock in Switzerland’s Canton Schwyz. I wiped my wet boots on the mat and entered Gipfelrestaurant Fronalpstock, a wood-lined mountain tavern on the edge of the snow-capped Schwyzer Alps that overlooks the eerily turquoise Urnersee. I’d been trekking up and down steep switchback trails most of the morning; my legs were aching and my stomach was growling. Before I even opened the lunch menu, I knew exactly what I was going to order: Älplermagronen, the Swiss version of macaroni cheese. The dish,...
