Hummus Bar

Budapest: The time I was almost punched in the face at the Hummus Bar

Right up the street from Budapest’s Great Synagogue is the Hummus Bar. We had just ordered – the Shawarma plate for me, the Complete Hummus plate for Lissette – when an older man and his son sat down at the table next to us. The man must have been in his early 70’s, the son [...]

Review of our dining experience with EatWith in Budapest

Review of our dining experience with EatWith in Budapest.

Wouldn’t it be cool to go to a new city and get invited to a dinner party? Where you could meet interesting people and be fed by locals? I think it’s a great concept. I first heard about it a month ago while watching CNN in a hotel room in Mexico City.

One month in Budapest. Experiences and impressions to date.

One month in Budapest. Experiences and impressions to date.

This weekend we’ll be celebrating a month in Budapest. Someone asked me yesterday how I liked Budapest. It’s something I’ve been putting off answering because, honestly, I’m not 100% sure myself how I feel. And then I remember that we felt the same way after a month in Prague last year – a city that [...]

Why “Feel good” quotes  represent everything that’s wrong with the world

Why “Feel good” quotes represent everything that’s wrong with the world.

Uck. I hate feel good quotes. Hate is a pretty strong word.  I was reminded of how intense my feelings are towards them when we recently stayed in an Airbnb apartment in Zagreb literally jam-packed with saccharine sweet slogans and sayings. A few photos from the apartment.

Things we don't like about Italy

Trieste. And remembering the things we don’t like about Italy

We love Italy. We came here a few years back and had one of our best vacations ever exploring Tuscany. In Italy you’ll always be assured of beautiful landscapes, great food and wine, and incredible history. We also love the Italian people; their passion, their outlook on life, their fashion sense. Italy is one of [...]

Being Back ‘home’ in Montreal after a year of Travel, observations and reflections._edited-2

Being Back ‘home’ in Montreal after a year of Travel. Observations and reflections.

We came back to Montreal with a lot of conflicting feelings. There was stress. For the last year Lissette has been working from a distance and the agreement with her employer was that it would last for just a year. Coming back, she knew there was no way that she could go back to working [...]

A year of Airbnb

A year of Airbnb apartments (July 2014 – July 2015)

We had never used Airbnb before last summer. Move the clock forward and we’ve stayed 196 nights of the past year in a total of 15 Airbnb apartments. I don’t know how we would travel the way we do without Airbnb. In this post I’ll feature our favorite Airbnb apartment stays over the past year
