What does autumn mean to you? For me, for years in New York, autumn meant the arrival of crisp air, the changing colors of leaves, homecomings, the impending holidays and pumpkin spiced everything. In San Diego, there’s still an arrival of moderately cooler air, you can drive an hour or so and watch the leaves change yet your fish tacos are just as tasty as they were a few months ago and your flip-flops never leave your feet. Here, summer reigns supreme and that outdoor lifestyle doesn’t change much throughout the year.

How to Create a Groundbreaking Travel Website

Lexa Pennington's picture

If you are considering starting a website covering any subject, you have probably seen the alarming statistic that there could easily be over two million blog posts written and uploaded to the internet on a daily basis. This kind of information can be discouraging, as it could mean that a new blog is not likely to attract many readers. However, the fact that new blogs are being started every day actually means that there is a chance that if you create a travel website, you may still be successful. 

Speaking Spätzle: What to Know About this Quintessential Swabian Favorite—and How to Make It

Plump and misshapen, with a soft, chewy texture that’s reminiscent of pasta or gnocchi, Spätzle belongs in its own culinary category altogether.

Pervasive in Germany, Austria, and Hungary, and stretching into Switzerland and other neighboring European countries, the popular pasta comes in several varieties. But the miniature dumplings usually share a few common threads – a simple dough, heavy with egg and flour, and a cooking method that involves dangling the dough over simmering water so that it cooks on contact.

When traveling, we are often in somewhat vulnerable positions; it is a foreign country we are visiting after all, which means a new culture, unfamiliar customs, and possibly different standards of appropriate behavior. Even though international traveling is exciting, adventurous, and rewarding, it can sometimes be potentially dangerous if we don't prepare accordingly.
