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…

We’ll always have shaving in Paris: Part 3

We’ll always have shaving in Paris: Part 3

The amazing thing about visiting Paris is the many faces of the city. While most of our time was taken up with shaving-related explorations, and for the travel between those shaving events, on the last night we took the opportunity to the “real” Paris, the city of the people who live and work there. 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…

We’ll always have shaving in Paris: Part 2

Although our trip to Paris was primarily for the business of shaving, it’s impossible to visit the City of Lights and not get carried away in Awe of the buildings there. See part 1 here. Up close and personal with the famous Notre Dame de Paris.   Kilometre Zero of the French highways, outside the Notre Dame cathedral, is considered the official center of Paris.     The Church of Saint-Sulpice in the 6th Arrondissement was constructed beginning in 1646.  …

Here’s a sneak peak of some of the things we found, and some of the things you can expect to appear at Fendrihan in the future. We stumbled across Planete Rasoir first. Founded in 1966, it’s a breathtaking spectacle…

In Search of Razor: Fendrihan Travels to Japan

In Search of Razor: Fendrihan Travels to Japan

With Tokyo on the horizon, I couldn’t help be a little bit excited – and a little bit nervous. Although a lot of our Fendrihan products come from Japan, I’d never been there myself, and its foreignness was an imposing barrier to a Canadian who didn’t know any more Japanese than “hello” and “two sushi please.” Exploring new countries is always exciting, especially when I’ve been tasked with finding unique and interesting products to bring back to Canada, but I…

A Canadian in Europe Part 1: Switzerland and France

Having never travelled to continental Europe before, I’d collected a series of impressions most scraped from those around me. With family in England, I’d often been there. Perched on the edge of the continent, the English watch their European cousins with what seems like bemusement and a mild contempt. And while that’s not surprising as it seems to be how the English perceive most countries in the world, it isn’t exactly the beaming positivity one wants to bring on one’s…
