Today’s S(Che)due: Your Itinerary for Santa Clara, Cuba

If you visit Santa Clara and don’t visit the obligatory Che sights, then we honestly have no idea what you’re visiting Santa Clara for, and we’d like to ask you for future research. If you are visiting the sights, at least do them in this neatly logical order. The best route is to start furthest west at the Estatua de Che y Niño. You may want to fork over 1 CUC for [...]

Five Places to Ditch the Crowds in Vinohrady

1. Jiřího z Poděbrad Farmers Market         Mass production is for the masses – leave the packaged life behind for a day wandering rows and rows of a farmer’s market, picking your own damn avocadoes. Well, yes, not from actual trees, but from market stands, and that’s basically the same thing. Basic-ally. Open Wednesday & Friday 08:00-18:00, Saturday 08:00-14:00. 2. Baobab Why yes, baobab trees were referenced in The [...]

Couch to 21k: the Marabana

Havana, for all its charm and allure, is not a city for runners. That's not to say that you don't see them, pounding the uneven pavement of the Malecón seawall and huffing fumes through the tunnel that leads to the suburbs. But it's still a rare breed that chooses to train in this city, and for women even rarer - nothing breaks the peacefulness of a long run like being catcalled by old [...]

Seven Things to Bring to Beaches in Pula

Water Shoes. Rocks, sea urchins, crabs—there’s no shortage of things to cut your feet open on. Olive oil. Should you step on a sea urchin, soaking the afflicted body part in olive oil will help you get the spines out. Snorkel mask. It may not be fun to step on aquatic life, but it’s sure pretty to look at. Your dog. Certain beach areas prohibit animals, but those that don’t are often [...]

Top 5 Places to Get Your Shop On in Brisbane

1) Jan Powers Farmers Markets (Wed, 10am-6pm, Sat, 6am-12pm) Food! Errbody loves food. Bringing a taste of the country to the cold hard streets of downtown Brisbane, come soak in the olfactory goodness of homemade cookies, pasta sauce, and fresh oranges. There are so many delicious smells your nose may jump off your face and live in the paella cart. Just watch out: hidden amongst the culinary bliss are some terrifying rip-offs [...]

  • Varadero Beach, Cuba

El Malecón: Paradise by the Sea

The Malecón is a five mile long seaside esplanade that stretches from Havana Harbor in the east to the western edge of Vedado. It’s cordoned off from the ocean by a crumbling, mildewed seawall that overlooks jagged, barnacled rocks swimming in the surf below. Interestingly enough— though not in the least surprisingly— the Malecón serves as a microcosm that represents Havana as a whole. In fact, pretty much anything you can see [...]

“Old Stuff”: A Day Trip to the Ruins of Mycenae

If nothing in Athens is old enough for you, make a day trip to Mycenae. As a city that was ancient even to the ancients themselves— and only about 90 minutes to two hours away from Athens— Mycenae is worth a visit. Lovers of the Iliad or Brad Pitt will remember that Mycenae was the stronghold held by Agamemnon, brother of Menelaus. If you haven’t heard of either, you’ve probably heard of [...]

  • France Marche Forville

Farmville to Forville

Le Marché Forville is a giant open market full of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, etc. The market takes place in the morning until about mid-day everyday but Monday, when it’s replaced by the Brocante Market next to Le Palais des Festivals.  The venue itself is a large, open-air pavilion that somewhat resembles a train station (except for the fact that it's missing trains). It's located along Rue Luis Blanc [...]
