Art Classes for Beginners in NYC

Drawing and painting is a great wintertime hobby outside the typical hibernation routine, and NYC has a plethora of options. These three are my favorites for their attitude, and their relationship to the city and the art world.

Backpacking Across South America? Here’s Your 3-Week Itinerary

Three friends are planning separate trips to South America in 2014 (one is World Cup-related!) and asked me for suggested itineraries after my six months on the continent in 2008. To help them out, I list some suggested sights, a list of bus times as I know them (really hard to find!), and a few other tips and tricks for spending a month in South America.

On the Bus: Dubrovnik to Kotor

Because we’d heard Montenegro was a not-to-miss destination, we hopped on the bus from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Kotor, Montenegro to begin the next leg of our adventure. We had set up a rental car, but after talking to our hostel in Dubrovnik (Villa Divine) we decided to forego the EUR$1600 rental car pick up and instead take the 10:30am bus to Kotor, where we could rent a car there for EUR$40 per day to later drive to Budva.

Remnants of the 1992-1995 War in Modern Sarajevo Life

The 1992-1995 war in Sarajevo is a not-so-distant past. It took over 11,000 lives including countless childhoods, and still very much affects day-to-day life. We had two tour guides with very different attitudes to postwar Bosnia.

The Story of How New Yorkers Came to Be So Aggressively In Love With Their City.

I’ve spent a total of almost three years in this great city. While that may be peanuts compared to the lifers, born-and-bred New Yorkers are in the minority. People like me—raised in Wisconsin, college in Chicago, recently moved—are the pulse of this city.
