Travel Spotting: The Chintziest Hotel in China

When you think of Chinatown, I bet the word “Chintzy” comes to mind. In fact, I bet the word chintzy originated in one of the many China-towns of the world.  Located in Hebei province, China, the Tianzi Hotel brings new meaning to the word gaudy (chintzy’s older, sluttier sister). The hotel holds the Guinness World Record for the “biggest image building” but I personally thin... More...

  There are a great many reasons I want to visit Ireland, the most important of which is my intense love for pasty European men. The second most important reason is this castle-house-island in Dublin. It looks like it was ripped straight from the pages of a fairy tale book, making it the perfect place for me to live out my fantasies of world domination and sex slavery. Also, it would be real...

In that past year or so, lanterns have been all the rage. If you have been paying attention to popular culture, you have probably glimpsed a few of these lights floating into the night sky, or bobbing gently on the water. If you find yourself in Honolulu around Memorial weekend, one of the events you must attend is the Lantern Festival. Lantern floating is the Honolulu version of Toro Nagashi, a tr... More...

I can honestly say in my travels, that I have never seen anything like this. The Green Lake in the Hochschwab mountains in Austria is a hiking trail in the winter. When the seasons change and the snow melts, it creates a totally clear lake with a grassy bottom. You can dive down to explore the underwater trails, bridges, and park benches. It’s basically like the lost city of Atlantis, except with... More...

Starfish Beach, Grand Cayman Never underestimate the power of taking a vacation. Sometimes we just need a break from our lives, no matter how small the window of opportunity is. My sister just came to visit for a day, and even though she was only in the city for about 24 hours, I can tell the trip did her some good. You may not always be able to jet-set to far off destinations, but that doesn’t mean... More...

Tavarua Island, in Fiji is the perfect place for a romantic getaway with your lover, or a steamy weekend tryst with a professional surfer. I don’t have much experience with hearts (unless you count breaking them) but I am told that Tavarua is shaped like a heart, as you can see above. To me, that makes it the best possible place to either propose marriage, or a threesome with some local hote... More...

Called the Kunsthofpassage Funnel Wall in Dresden, Germany, the artsy fartsy exterior of this building uses funnels and gutters to make music when it rains. Aside from the function of it, the wall looks like a super-colorful art installation or obstacle course, and is designed to both resemble musical instruments and evoke the general feeling of music. Those crafty Germans are always coming up with... More...

There is nothing I love more than hitting the dusty trails and driving down an open road, except of course, everything. Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling and seeing new things but the whole driving thing doesn’t really work for me since I haven’t had a license in 3 years. Back when I did drive though, I remember the feeling of the wind in my weave, seeing how high the speedometer coul... More...

Chalupines (grasshoppers), Mexico Let me start by saying that I am normally a big proponent of the “practice what you preach” philosophy. However, even though this may come as a surprise to some of you, I am pretty picky about what I put in my mouth. Notice I said what, not who. When it comes to foods, I know what I like and I know what I don’t. The don’t category pretty much... More...
