I am the biggest chicken alive. So how is it that I found myself launched out of a small plane 16,000 feet above the Bay of Islands in New Zealand? In partnership with Tourism New Zealand I spent the last week touring the northern part of the country’s North Island along with 3 other online journalists…

The concept of black and white must seem absurd for an island like Burano. There is no escaping the reach of colors in varying shades and intensity, not that I was looking to; here in Burano, roughly a 30 minute water taxi ride from Venice, it’s all part of the appeal.  A few weekends ago, in the doldrums of a…

I’m no longer the bookworm I once was. Gone are the days where I would skip classes to hide in a special nook in my high school library just to read. But the thrill and comfort of being surrounded by books hasn’t left me. You can imagine my elation in learning that Dublin is one of…
