As it turns out, there are a whole lot more replicas of the Eiffel Tower then I ever imagined. And none of those replicas are even in France. There are some in Texas, Las Vegas, Tennessee, China, Romania, Greece, and even Mexico. None of them are as tall as the original, but they’re still pretty […]
The Museum of Barbed Wire in Kansas is probably somewhere near the top of the list of World’s Most Boring Places to Visit. Really. Despite the website’s promise that you’ll ‘get hooked on barbed wire history and lore’, I somehow think I’d be painfully bored instead. And I’m really not so sure I want to […]
The Aghoris are distinct from other Hindu sects and Sadu’s (priests) as a result of their alcoholic and cannibalistic ceremonies. Skulls and other human bones are obtained from the cremation grounds and used due to them having life-force which they believe can be harnessed for ritual purposes.
She kept stopping in a bathroom to reach into her bra every time she needed money. And we were in NYC on vacation, so that was about every five minutes. But my mother insisted it was the only way to protect against pickpockets. It was one of the more mortifying memories of my twelve-year-old career […]
Don’t read this blog if you plan to stay in a hotel anytime soon. These stories will make you so paranoid, you may show up to the room with a gas mask and an arsenal of cleaning supplies. From photos of mysterious stains to stories of unpleasant surprises, this blog will have you cringing and […]
Michael Kemeter is one crazy Austrian! He’s a daredevil who has absolutely no fear and he’s just proved it with a 268-meter free climb of one of the tallest buildings in the Hunan capital of Changsha. Watch the video and see as he makes the 90 minute climb look like a piece of cake, and […]
Only 18km south of Launceston, en route to Hobart, on the banks of the South Esk River, sits the small historic town of Evandale, which various locals had suggested that I check out. Whilst there’s not all that much to do there, its quaint historic buildings, old-fashioned shops and traditional signage, all situated amidst hugely […]
It was suggested that I check out the Cataract Gorge, one of Launceston’s premier tourist attractions found at the lower section of the South Esk River. So I drove the short distance from the city centre, arriving with an hour or so left before sundown.
The first thing that struck me about my Hobart accommodation, the Avalon City Retreat, was the personal touch. Amanda, the Marketing & PR Manager, was waiting on Macquarie Street to greet me, and show me around.
They say that too much of a good thing is bad. The guy that said that probably never experienced the giant soft serve ice cream being sold in Tamsui, Taiwan. Stacked at more than 12 inches high, this giant ice cream is made up of all your dreams and fantasies. This insane amount of ice […]
Australian airline Qantas have always been at the forefront of innovation. Partnering with advertising network Droga5 and publishers Hachette, their latest initiative sees the airline creating a series of novels that last for only as long as the flight. Entitled ‘Stories For Every Journey’, the series is a pretty neat idea. The only we problem […]
Wish you could travel to the most exotic corners of the globe, but you’re just too short on time? Then you should order A Box From whatever city you get curious about. A Box From is a little box full of all the best things from a city. Take A Box From Seoul. It’s full of cute […]

The Face of Tomorrow is a concept for a series of photographs that addresses the effects of globalization on identity. In this on-going project, Istanbul based photographer, Mike Mike, takes a group of photos of inhabitants around the world from Hong Kong to London and then morphs their faces together to depict a ‘typical face’ […]
The Capo Hotel blends old world Italian charm with the modern flash of glass and polished metals. The hotel, situated in Shanghai, was voted Best Restauarant 2013 by the China Tatler. And no wonder! Fresh, oven baked pizzas and scrumptious cocktails are readily available to enjoy in this super cool atmosphere. I love the strange classical art found throughout.
