When I first visited Québec City in 2013, I fell in love.

Québec City is a capital city that has the vibe of a big, friendly village.
When Mario Matulich thinks of hotel chains with great customer service, he thinks of Marriott, IHG and Hilton — especially Hilton.
In the early days of our relationship, my now husband and I gave up our jobs, packed our harem pants into oversized backpacks, and set off on a six-month sojourn around Southeast Asia. Those carefree, whirlwind months set the bar for every trip we've taken since, including Christmas in Oman's desolate Al Hajar Mountains. So when the time came for us to get married last year, we decided to head into the bush on our first safari—with a guest list that stopped at the two of us.
Cold temperatures shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the outdoors. With the right heated clothing, any place, and temperature, are bearable. Even if it’s Banff in the middle of winter, or in my experience this year, -35 Fahrenheit in Mongolia.
Portugal’s cuisine has been shaped by many factors, from its fertile, sun-baked olive groves and vineyards to its centuries-old love affair with the sea.
A survey by the travel organization Road Scholar (formerly known as Elder Hostel) has revealed that up to 30% of the company's tour participants are solo travelers; and of those solo travelers, 85% are women.
Shortly after having my first child, with a trip on the books, I remember messaging a mom friend and asking: What do you do about a bag? After all, there was a day not too long ago when the diaper bag was an eyesore. An item on a baby registry, it was clunky and baby-centered, and it marked a short life stage, retiring to a closet a mere matter of years later.
Award-winning Somebody Feed Phil—the delectably illuminating food-travel show hosted by big-hearted, energetic funnyman Phil Rosenthal on Netflix—premieres its 7th season on March 1. The series’ eight new episodes spotlight Dubai, Mumbai, Kyoto, Taipei, Washington D.C., Orlando (with a twist), Scotland and Iceland. Rosenthal’s TV career is rooted in comedy. He was the creator, writer, executive producer and showrunner of the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, starring comedian Ray Romano, which ran for nine seasons on CBS. These days, Rosenthal’s well-fed, globetrotting gallops have inspired an enormous fan following. Rosenthal and I recently sat down to dish up behind-the-scenes scoops, sentiments and surprises about the new season. (Stay tuned for my upcoming Forbes review of Somebody Feed Phil.)
On a steeply pitched road in Grosses Walsertal valley, it was snowing – heavily – as if the heavens had shattered. I was two hours west of Innsbruck, deep in the Alps in midwinter, but the view was free from the rows of snow-laden hotels, après-ski bars and resort chalets that I was used to seeing on previous ski trips.
With his top-of-the-line mattress selling for $750,000 — and featured in the homes of celebrities like Drake — Hästens CEO Jan Ryde has already succeeded on a number of challenges. Still he gave himself one more, promising to write a book when his annual company sales reached $100M. ‘ When Business Is Love ’ isn’t your typical corporate cutthroat how-to manual. Instead Ryde tells the story of his fifth-generation 172-year-old family business going from making horse saddles to the most desired mattresses in the world, and how he guides the company with a combination of passion for excellence and a culture of compassion among the people who work there. I spoke with Ryde at the company’s New York showroom about his business philosophy and his most famous mattress.
Japan is a delightful, safe place for travel with kids in general, and Kyoto is no exception. Its spectacular temples, fascinating foods, interesting culture and beautiful places for imaginations to run wild create opportunities for tons of fun for little ones of all ages.
Upon reaching Phnom Penh, our first act was searching for dinner. I will never forget my first meal that truly tasted like home, after fourteen years in exile: It was fitting that it should be prahok—our defining (and aromatic) national condiment. We found someone preparing a version very much like my mother’s splendid cooked prahok: mixed with kroeung spice paste, minced pork, and young tamarind leaves, all wrapped in a banana leaf and grilled. Although I had never developed a taste for raw prahok as a child, that day the luscious, pungent fish was, for me, the flavor of Cambodia. I closed my eyes and drank in the familiar aromas. A sense of relief and well-being washed over me. Something essential from that lost world had survived, after all.

I’ve enjoyed a lovely four- to five-day circular trip using ferries and bikes. We took the Brittany Ferries overnight sailing from Portsmouth-St Malo, then cycled along La Véloscénie [signposted cycle route] passing Mont Saint-Michel. At Domfront we took La Vélo Francette to Ouistreham and then the ferry back to Portsmouth. At least three-quarters of the ride is off road along former railway track cycle paths that are well maintained. Plenty of accommodation is available. With the exception of a hilly few miles around Flers, it’s all very easy and with the prevailing wind. The final 40 miles from the impressive Viaduc de Clécy is all downhill, passing Pegasus Bridge.Keith Perry
Alfredo Aliaga Burdio, 92, is now the Guinness World Record holder for the oldest man to cross the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim on foot.
“Welcome to the oldest bratwurst kitchen in the world,” says Sofia Hilleprandt, as I duck beneath the wooden ceiling beams. “This wood was cut in 1379.” One of the beams has a cushion attached to it, no doubt because it’s concussed a patron or two. On the walls are weathered pots and pans, alongside knick-knacks and trinkets such as old beer mugs and faded portraits.
I’ve always been obsessed with the food around festivities. I adore breaking ‘rules’ set around cooking, but there is something so lovely about the simplicity of celebrating with a certain dish to link you to a culture. Food around Scottish festivities is not a widely known tradition; the most habitual celebratory food we would eat would be a steamy tower of haggis, neeps, and tatties on Burns Night, surrounded by poetry and whisky. But I can’t really think of many others off the top of my head.
You could say that brothers Oliver and Zach Hyman were like kids in a candy store when they created their new direct-to-consumer brand, Bubblegum Kids.
