Get The Best Experience With Your Travels Abroad By Using These Top Tips

Traveling to strange locations and being in places you know nothing about can be very exciting. I have some memories I’m very fond of that include running early in the morning beside the Danube river in Budapest, enjoying a juicy steak with late night drinks in Uruguay, and checking out the temples of Angkor Wat. In some cases, when traveling on business I was only able to see the things that were visible from the window of my hotel room because there just wasn’t any time left in between meetings and other business activities. For every type of trip, there are proven steps that...

The day I picked up a Cuban hitchhiker

The hitchhikers were the first thing we noticed when we left Havana, bound for Viñales. Dozens of people were waiting on the side of the highway: men on their way home from work; schoolchildren in pristine white-and-red uniforms; families with toddlers in tow. The early-afternoon sun shone bright, slicing through the mosquito-thick humidity. Yet the hitchhikers stood and waited, seeking respite from the heat under bridges or in the shade of a lone tree between the tobacco and sugarcane fields. Every now and then a vehicle would stop and pick up some people. There seemed to be a system...

On Krupówki, Zakopane’s most famous street, you’ll find local products from all over Poland’s mountainous Podhale region.

It is very hard to find authentic oscypek – as the decorative cheese is known – in Zakopane. Or anywhere else, really. Oscypek is as delicious as it is beautiful That’s because, as per EU regulations, this golden-hued, spindle-shaped cheese has...

Switzerland’s invisible linguistic borders

It was one of the shortest train rides I had ever taken: just seven minutes and one stop from the Swiss city of Neuchâtel. Yet when I disembarked in the small town of Erlach, everything seemed, somehow, different. At first, I couldn’t put my finger on it. Something about the architecture perhaps? People’s body language? Even the air, crisp and ridiculously fresh in that distinctively Swiss way, felt somehow changed. I walked for a while, befuddled. I was still in Switzerland, that much I knew. I had not crossed any international border. Then I glanced at a street sign, and...
