Monaco is one of the world’s smallest but one of the most exotic locations. Spread across an area of barely 200 hectares, Monaco has so much to see and experience that many larger countries in the world cannot compete with.

Dalmatia’s fjaka state of mind

One hot July, I was sitting at a cafe in Dubrovnik waiting for someone to show up with keys to the apartment I was renting. It had been over an hour. “Excuse me, have you seen Pero?” I asked the waiter in Croatian. “I am supposed to meet with him, to get keys to an apartment.” “He is probably on fjaka,” the waiter said, shrugging. Frustrated, I wanted to throw my hands up in the air. As an impatient New Yorker who always wears a watch, I was driven crazy by his lateness. Apparently, there was a wave of fjaka going around, brought on by the high...

In Iceland, food is a challenge, not a meal

The snow drifted high around the little outbuilding of a restaurant I was in, metres from the gelid ocean, but the place was warm, decorated with fish nets and crab carapaces and the occasional gnome. On a dish in front of me was liver sausage cured in soured whey, dung-smoked lamb and a couple of slabs of rotten skate that looked like they were designed by H R Geiger and smelled strongly of urine.

Mongolia’s obsession with pine nuts

Halfway up the mountain, Enkhbaatar disappeared. “Enkhbaatar, where are you?” We swivelled, trying to spot his white hat through the tangled branches. This was no place to lose one’s guide. We were only a few kilometres below the Siberian border, in a dense, subarctic pine forest known as a taiga. It was famously remote, even by Mongolian standards.  Thunk. Something hit the ground near my feet and rolled down the slope. I looked up to see Enkhbaatar nearly 10m in the air, clinging to the top of a pine tree. He yanked an object from the swaying branches and pitched it...
