Marché Bastille – Bastille Market

Marché Bastille – Bastille Market

Paris food market open Thursday and Sunday No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to one of the many outdoor food markets. Even if your accommodations don’t include kitchen facilities, you’ll find these markets to be a vibrant, colorful and all together delicious […]

L’As Du Fallafel

L’As Du Fallafel

Perfect falafel How many falafel joints do you know that have their own crowd control barriers? There’s good reason that this Paris hot spot does. Without it the lunchtime lines would wind out into the street! The first time I ordered the falafel “in my […]

Millau Viaduct

Millau Viaduct

The tallest bridge in the world Southern France is best known for its glorious weather, picturesque villages, and fields upon fields of grape vines. Now, there’s another attraction – the Millau Viaduct. The journey across the gorges of the Tarn River Valley was notoriously horrendous. Summer holiday traffic would […]

Hidden Gem: Lunas, Fance

Hidden Gem: Lunas, Fance

Driving through France, off the motorway, one can’t help but stumble upon example after example of tiny picturesque villages built hundreds of years ago. Many of these communes are still wonderfully, magnificently and thankfully intact. Lunas, France is situated in the south, in the Herault (Languedoc-Roussillon region), just 35 […]

Best Ride NY: Ulster County

Best Ride NY: Ulster County

Favorite Motorcycle Ride: Greene County to Ulster County, NY This scenic ride is surprisingly direct: 23A to 214. While 23A is the quickest route to the Catskill Mountains from the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, it is not heavily travelled during motorcycle season. This short ride, just under an hour, speeds past […]

Best Ride Vermont

Best Ride Vermont

Favorite Motorcycle Ride: Plainfield, Massachusetts to Wilmington, Vermont One of my favorites rides of all is Route 8A between Plainfield, MA and Jacksonville, VT, with the final destination of lunch at Jezebel’s Eatery in Wilmington. The route is fast and windy and often empty of any […]

Jezebel’s Eatery – Wilmington, VT

Jezebel’s Eatery – Wilmington, VT

Vermont’s Secret Gem Jezebel’s doesn’t have a website, a Facebook page or even an up-to-date Yelp listing. The service is unpredictable, but the food – the food is so good. Open for breakfast and lunch, Jezebel’s sandwich-heavy menu combines interesting breads with really fresh ingredients. The non-meat options […]

Best Vermont Campground: Coolidge State Park

Best Vermont Campground: Coolidge State Park

Motorcycle Camping in Vermont Everyone has their own criteria for rating campgrounds. What we’re looking for is peace and quiet, and Coolidge State Park provides that kind of camping experience. There is no lake or swimming pool on site, no craft activities or movie nights. You […]

Los Caracoles

Los Caracoles

Eating Out in Barcelona: Los Caracoles Online reviews of this restaurant are all the same: crowded, expensive, a tourist trap. Thankfully, we didn’t check the reviews beforehand. I found this restaurant both exciting and charming, and the food was outstanding. In business since 1835, the […]

The Asian Supermarket in Albany, NY

The Asian Supermarket in Albany, NY

Located on Central Avenue in Albany Coming late to Asian cooking, my repertoire of Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai and Korean recipes is limited, but there are a number of ingredients that have quickly become staples. These ingredients can be difficult or unreliable to find at […]

Best Potato Chips: Made To Order

Best Potato Chips: Made To Order

The Looney Moose Café The search for the perfect homemade potato chip ended in Stratton, Maine in 2011. The road sign advertising Maine Lobster Roll drew us in, but it’s the homemade potato chips (the default side) that keep me dreaming of going back. The […]
