Mamihlapinatapai: A lost language’s untranslatable legacy

It was spring when I reached the end of the world. On that mid-September day it was cold and raining in the city of Ushuaia, Argentina, but the sky cleared as I trekked nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park, allowing the sun to reflect off crisp glacial waters and snow-covered mountains. In 1520, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan would have seen a similar view as he led his Spanish fleet into the region. He travelled along a strait (later named after him) between mainland South America and a windswept archipelago he called Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) for the small fires he spotted...

Vada Pav: The ‘Indian burger’ McDonald’s can’t master

Suresh Thakur dropped another batch of potato patties, known as batata vada, into the cooking oil that had been sizzling in a massive iron pan since early morning. He’d already shaped the patties, made with mashed potato mixed with masala spices, green chilli and, occasionally, finely chopped raw onion, into near perfect spheres, and dipped them quickly in a thick chickpea batter just before frying. The vada made a gentle hiss as they hit the oil, and the aroma of the chickpea batter floated in the air, making me impatient. A few tosses and turns, and the vada were ready. Thakur...

Full to brimming with the excellent works of artists from the area and beyond, it’s a terrific several-weeks-long event for all the family, with markets, concerts, long-distance runs and many other activities too. And yet, Rochester is far from merely a one-season destination for non-locals; there truly is so much to check-out in the city – and all-year-round, at that… Image...

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...

Staying in a Lighthouse – Wake up with the views and the sounds of the sea.

There is something magical and mysterious about lighthouses, but have you ever considered sleeping in one? Well, if you have, we have luckily run through five amazing hotels that will allow you to appreciate the sea at its best – from the tree topped cliff sides of Italy to the choppy sea edges of Norway.
