    Wandering Philadelphia : Han Dynasty review (123 Chestnut St)

    P1030291-XL

    Let me start with this … I love hot, spicy food. The spicier, the better … I’m one of those people who will fly to the end of the earth for excellent spicy Chinese food.

    Wandering Philadelphia : Fine Palate Restaurant Review

    P1030217-L

    I’ve recently started back on the consulting path and my latest client is based in Philadelphia. The last time I worked or travelled to Philly, was in 2006. I hated the city and thought it was just another Detroit or Baltimore waiting to happen. Fast forward 10 years later … I’ve been completely surprised at the revival of the city …

    casbah

    Antigua Guatemala is one of the major tourism hubs in the country. After 26 posts about what to do in town, I’m still amazed at what you can find to do. I’ve been going for years and one thing I have noticed is that the bars definitely love a “Ladies Night”.  Every night of the week, you can find some …

    Moving from Toronto to PEI : PEI Driving Habits

    doog

    As a traveller for so long, I neglected to get my driver’s license till I moved to PEI. This could be a good thing or a very bad thing … so I’ll explain. Over the last couple months, I’ve noticed that drivers in PEI aren’t terrible, bad or inconsiderate … they’re just unobservant. Very, very unobservant.  Here’s a poll from …

    Moving from Toronto to PEI : Confirming the confirmation!

    anigif_enhanced-470-1436207852-10

    There’s a lot to learn when you’re coming from away to the island. One of my biggest pet peeves is what I call confirming the confirmation There is a classic Seinfeld scene that truly captures the spirit of confirming the confirmation. In MANY of my interactions with islanders, I’ve learned that the following conversation isn’t enough to get work done …

    Moving from Toronto to PEI : The cost of food in PEI

    groceries

    Adventures in moving from Toronto to PEI : Honesty isn’t the best policy here

    honesty

    In my semi-ongoing series on our transition in moving from Toronto to PEI, I’ve found a lot of similarities between Trinidad and Prince Edward Island. For instance If you didn’t grow up on the island and your parents didn’t grow up here, you’ll never be an “islander”. In Trinidad, it came from our fundamental mistrust of foreigners. In PEI, it …
