Planning on traveling solo in Philadelphia? The City of Brotherly Love is a great foodie city and here a few of my favorite places to eat and drink.
The City of Brotherly Love can thank William Penn for the pockets of green spaces and Sofitel Philadelphia for a roof garden buzzing with honey bees. Atop the 14-story hotel in Center City is a working garden with a collection of herbs, strawberries and more than 100,000 honey bees.
My recent trip to the City of Brotherly love coincided with Philly Beer Week, an excuse to enjoy more brew I suppose, and was the perfect time to check out one of Philadelphia’s breweries, 2nd Story Brewing Company.

When I told my friend I wanted to eat crickets off some food cart in the middle of a Bangkok street, I knew I was pushing his comfort zone.

As resourceful as he is, he had a solution, Eathai Food Court at Central Embassy, one of several luxury shopping malls in Bangkok.

“Mmm, it kinda tastes like bacon,” I said to my sister as we sampled three beers in Bamberg, Germany, “and I bet it would be delicious with bloody mary mix.”
‘Tis the season to be merry and jolly and as you compile your list of holiday gifts for outdoor adventurers, take a look at the reliable and rugged Stanley gear with my favorite being a Stanley Happy Hour set.
Wrangling snakes requires mental alertness and nourishment. Before learning the proper ways to round up pythons last month, I fed my body a Florida Everglades lunch at Joanie’s Blue Crab Cafe.
When traveling to Lisbon, Portugal, be sure to stop and sip the ginjinha (or ginja). If you have the option, sip it from an edible, chocolate cup for that chocolate covered cherry flavor. As part of the Viking River Cruises Portugal’s River of Gold itinerary, I had time to explore Lisbon (Lisboa) for a couple of days before boarding the ship and sailing the Douro River. One of the things that makes Viking Cruises awesome is that...
