The mystery behind Greece’s temples

When I was a little girl, I would pester my grandfather with the same question every time we wandered the flagstone streets of Athens’ Philopappou Hill on a clear evening. I would wait until we had reached the 147m peak, with the Parthenon at eye level, to ask: “Why are the stars shining so brightly from here?” “Ancient Greeks were wise. They knew where to build their sacred venues,” my grandfather would say, unfazed by the annoying excitement in my voice. “These are places symbolising something greater than us.” View image of Some...

The real story behind Australian slang

From Bondi to Bells, Noosa to Cable, Australia is renowned for its beautiful beaches. Less well known is the way beach culture has influenced Australian English. If you were told to ‘put on your cossies and thongs’, ‘grab the esky’ and ‘watch out for any Noahs’, you would be forgiven for bewilderment. Australia’s mainland coastline spans more than 30,000km (47,000 if you include coastal islands) and has 10,685 beaches, according to the Coastal Studies Unit of Sydney University. Eighty-five per cent of the population live within 50km of the coast,...

The truth behind New Orleans’ nebulous sandwich

The po’ boy is the most overrated sandwich on the planet. There, I said it. And now I can never go to New Orleans again, lest I want to get clubbed to death with day-old baguettes. Let me explain: I was in the Louisiana city two years ago, when I perched myself at the restaurant bar in my hotel and ordered a po’ boy, my first one ever. As I bit in, I noticed the bread was on the stale side and the fried shrimp was flavourless. The iceberg lettuce was flaccid and the tomatoes were mealy. The baguette had only a minimal amount of mayo, barely keeping me from feeling like I was...

5 Must-Visit places in the United Kingdom

For a genuine travelling enthusiast, the United Kingdom is most certainly one of the best and mandatory places to visit. In fact, England, Wales, Scotland, and many Offshore Islands are great vacation goals for families, singles and couples. It can also be considered a ‘great bargain’ holiday since the dollar is rising high against the pound sterling.

The first European settlement in the New World

While driving north along the TransCanada Highway, I was stopped by a moose. I sat stranded along the stretch of roadway in northern Newfoundland known as the Viking Trail, which leads to L’Anse Aux Meadows National Historic Site, the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. As I waited for him to carry on his way, I noticed that the tree branches in the forest lining this section of road all pointed east, angled by the force of the wind blowing inland off the Strait of Belle Isle, the narrow strip of water separating Newfoundland from Labrador.

The German village that changed the war

Like many people, I initially visited the German island of Usedom for its sandy beaches, fischbrotchen (a local fish sandwich) and quaint seaside towns, such as Heringsdorf. The small, remote resort was popular with the Prussian royalty, and later, East Germans. But between 1936 and 1945, the Nazis occupied one village for a darker purpose.

The world is a fascinating place full of amazing destinations, only waiting to be discovered. There’s a saying or a statistic rather that the majority of people stay within a 20-mile radius of their birthplace. If anything, that’s a somewhat morbid thing to learn.
