    The white roofs of Bermuda

    RIS_0578-L

    When you pull into the Royal Navy Dockyard, you’ll be treated to hills filled with the white roofs of Bermuda. Just like the blue and white houses in Santorini, you’re hit with a certain aesthetic feel, but did you know that the scarcity of fresh water has made them a necessity. The whitewashed roofs have a tremendous and positive environmental ...

    Monday Night Raw in Montreal 2015 … It’s front seats or nothing

    whaS

    Where to eat in Antigua Guatemala : El Viejo Cafe review

    RIS_0034-S

    After a week in Antigua Guatemala, everyone has recommendations for great breakfast places. I’ve always found that the best recommendations will come from other service providers or owners in the food business.
