Exploring Chichen Itza, Mexico

Chichen Itza. We’re both excited to finally visit a site that has been on our bucket lists for years. Built between 750 and 900 AD, the well of the itza is one of the seven wonders of the modern world. A Mayan adventure without the sacrifices. In our minds we’re expecting to hack our way into the jungle to get to this ancient site, like something you would see in an...

Fotografiska, Stockholm

Fotografiska Museet (The Swedish Museum of Photography) is more like a gallery than a museum. Located just a short (fifteen minute) walk away from Gamla Stan (Old Town) in Stockholm, it’s worth the minor detour not only for photography nuts and Instagram addicts, but for those looking for a hip place to eat and drink with the local creative set. Strike a Pose...

The Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art), NYC

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, known more commonly as The Met is one of the world’s great museums. The use of art in The Met’s title is loose. This is a serious museum. Sure it has an incredible collection of Van Goghs, rooms of Degas and many pieces that will have you thinking – wow, I didn’t even know that was in America! But this is place is palatial...

Staten Island Ferry

The Staten Island Ferry is proof that visiting New York shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Ah Staten Island. The fifth borough is almost an afterthought for most New Yorkers. It’s probably more that it’s out of mind more than out of sight. There’s more green space and cheap rent, but probably a little more crime than gentrified-Manhattanites would want to be...

Salem, Massachusetts

Salem, New England is possibly the one town in the world that is synonymous with witchcraft. So was it magical? Enchanting? Or was it just a place to make money disappear? It was somewhere we had always wanted to check out and upon visiting Boston for the second time, without the knee-deep snow of last February, it seemed the perfect moment. In fact the weather was...

Space Invader invades NYC

Space Invader, Paris’s pixel-punking street artist visited NYC for a brief sabbatical in 2015. Many of his pieces are still easily found around the city. Street art is synonymous with the streets of New York. What started in the 1960s and 70s as a form of protest has evolved from angsty self-expression to outright vandalism to what is now widely considered to...

The Nubble Lighthouse, Maine

Maine’s Nubble Lighthouse is a stunning example of a classic East Coast lighthouse. New England’s picturesque, yet harsh, rocky coastline has launched and sunk many ships over its time. The Nubble Lighthouse has protected ships from hidden reefs, sharp outcrops and turbulent seas for over 100 years.   Officially known as the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, the...
