Train Travel – Plan Your Next Trip

Unless you grew up or live beside a noisy train track, to some people, a train whistle is the loneliest sound in the world. Someone even wrote a song about it. On a loosely related musical note, “One is the loneliest number” according to the lyrics of Three Dog Night, but let’s not concern ourselves with that. We think train whistles signify adventure, speed, and excitement – possibly sleep, even. Station to station; check out these possible train trips across…

If you like exploring, hiking, searching for hidden clues, and are a decent navigator, it might be the hobby for you. Did we mention that it’s pretty much free? The goal: find hidden containers called geocaches with the help of a smartphone or GPS, then…

A New Hobby: Learning to Sail

A New Hobby: Learning to Sail

2

(This is part 2 in our new travel series. Read part 1 here.) Sailing is an ancient pastime that mankind has enjoyed since we first started lashing logs together to form basic rafts.

This association with freedom and the wide open ocean…

We’ll always have shaving in Paris: Part 3

It’s a beautiful place to travel, but it’s easy to get caught visiting some of the world’s most famous tourist sites, and miss the small streets…
