You’re Not From Round Here: The Pathway to Connections

Image heart-of-mobile.jpg

It takes me a moment to register every time. There’s this look that passes over their face when I first speak. You can literally see some kind of switch flip in their brain. Their eyes show it. It’s a small movement. A widening perhaps, or a gentle flick back and forth. The brain... (c) y Travel Blog - Read entire story here. … [Read more]

Permaculture Design Principles (12 Steps to a More Productive Garden)

Image 12-Permaculture-design-principle-garden-ideas-627x1024.png

A permaculture garden differs from other modern farming techniques because its focus is on more than merely growing food. Permaculture practitioners seek to find balances between the give and take of nature– animals included– and the needs of humanity. From sustainable homes and renewable energy sources to food forests, the permaculture movement is about much more than gardening. However, creating your own permaculture garden is not a bad way to start yourself down the road to sustainable living. It was how my wife Emma and I began our journey, and how we like to introduce and share the practice with ... (c) Green Global Travel - Read entire story here. … [Read more]

How to Spend a Week in Vienna

Image viennaitinerary1.jpg

Vienna. Home to schnitzel, Freud, Mozart, the Hapsburgs, opera, art, coffeeshops, and so much more. Over the decade I have been coming in and out of this city, I’ve watched it change from a stiff capital city to a cool, hip, foodie, and arty paradise. Ok, it’s always been an arty paradise and maybe the “stiff capital” was just my incorrect first impression. See, when I first visited Vienna, I wasn’t a fan. It felt too stiff. Too proper. It had the air of a city too long steeped in imperial ... (c) Nomadic Matt's Travel Site - Read entire story here. … [Read more]

4 Reasons to Love Monaco That Don’t Involve Gambling

It’s not everyday that we are made to feel like rock stars, that we can walk along a stately boulevard with the world’s most famous and well-heeled elite.
