Throwback Thursday – Hiking in Joshua Tree National Park (10 Photos)

by Powr Cupl @ Powr Cupl

In March of 2016 we joined some friends for a hike at the Joshua Tree National Park in California, and while digging through our archives recently we came across the photos from the afternoon and figured it was as good a time as any to share them!

Touring Saigon's Street Food: How To Love Ho Chi Minh City | fork on the road


fork on the road

I didn’t expect to love Ho Chi Minh City as much as I did. More than any other place, Vietnam seems to divide travellers and tourists: they either really love it, or really don’t, and Ho Chi Minh City is often at the forefront of that. Because of this polarisation, I entered the city thinking I probably wouldn’t love it instantly, but perhaps it would grow on me. I was totally wrong. I LOVE Ho Chi Minh City – or Saigon, as everyone still calls it. Forget about it growing on me, it took about five minutes to realise this city was right up our street. On our first night Tom and I arrived late and were tired. We popped out for “just one beer”...

Insider’s Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City, commonly known as Saigon, is the mixed reflection of dynamic modern lifestyle and impressing historical architecture.

Dogs in Berlin: Introduction | Stil in Berlin

by @ Stil in Berlin

About a 100.000 dogs are officially registered as living in Berlin, the real number is probably twice as high. And it makes sense, Berlin is, all in all, a quite dog-friendly city, especially compared to other cities of its size and influence. Paris is the worst city for dogs I ever encountered, and I wouldn't even think about taking my dog to London or New York, but having a dog in Berlin is something very enjoyable. Loads of parks and greenery, many pals to play with, and a generally very friendly attitude towards dogs are a joy for every dog owner. I wanted to write a guide about dogs for quite some time now, and this is the first round, summarizing all the rules one has to consider when coming to or living in Berlin with a dog. The next articles will include notes on where to take your dog to have fun, and where to shop for your pup. Oh and let me know your questions and suggestions in the comments!

I'm usually not one to hold off recommendations, there's no secret list of places I want to keep to myself, however, this one took a while and I have eaten here more than once since my first time in the summer.

Vegetarian Thai food: Kin Dee | Stil in Berlin

by @ Stil in Berlin

One of my favourite openings of the year was without a doubt , the Thai restaurant under the direction of head chef Dalad Kambhu and restaurant manager Moritz Estermann that took over the space of renown  in the spring. From the start, Dalad made a point of focussing on the strengths of her home country's cooking: fresh, high quality ingredients and intense herb & spice mixes. That's why she rather uses local produce like kohlrabi or radishes than imported veggies, and makes all her pastes in house. And much to my delight, she also included plenty vegetarian dishes from the beginning. By now, six months after opening their doors, there's a full on vegetarian menu with many new dishes, that I can very much recommend. And for all you non-veggie friends out there: the meat and fish options are seriously delicious as well, my fellow eaters usually drool over the confit octopus with Kaprao sauce, some of them saying it's the best they've ever eaten.

Where To Eat Vegan Food In New York City

by Selene @ fork on the road

In recent years, even the most ardent meat-lovers would find it hard to ignore the rise of veganism. The most recent research estimates that six percent of Americans now follow a vegan diet — a staggering increase of 600% in just three years. While the idea that vegans just eat salad prevails among some, the notion that you can eat healthily and deliciously without animal products is catching on. The Big Apple is a great place to discover how versatile a vegan diet can be. So where should you eat vegan food in New York City? Just about anywhere! From the lingering long lines outside the excellent vegan restaurant By Chloe to the prevalence of vegan options on traditional menus, it’s clear that NYC...

It's that time of the year again! It's getting cold and very uncomfortable in this city, and while it's easy to survive the chilly season when you have enough funds for a warm coat, all the hot soups, and a cosy home to hibernate in, it's one of the most grueling times for those not that lucky. And because I'm sure most of you have one or three extra warm jackets in their closet, or a pair of boots to spare, I'm asking you to come and donate them at Warm Up No.4, a clothing donation event benefiting Kreuzberg Hilft! I'll make your effort worth your while, promised.

The Vegan Guide To Staying Healthy On The Road

by Selene @ fork on the road

For backpackers, tourists, or anyone who travels for work, trying exotic new cuisines is one of the best things about travelling. Who wouldn’t be excited to try authentic empanadas in Mexico, steaming-hot street food in Vietnam, or a plate of fresh gnocchi in Italy? But if you don’t eat meat, fish, dairy or eggs, things can be more difficult. Though the vegan movement is growing quickly, in many countries meals still centre around animal products, and the very concept of veganism can be met with bewilderment. I’ve spent the past 15 months travelling through Latin America, Southeast Asia and Australasia, and have written extensively about my search for veggie-friendly food in each country I visit. During my travels I made the switch from vegetarianism...

Historic Luxury, Northern Charm: Inside Swinton Park Hotel, Yorkshire

Deep in the North Yorkshire dales, set in 250 acres of forested parkland bordering the moors, is the Swinton Park Estate. As you drive through wrought-iron gates and catch a first glimpse of this striking ancestral home, complete with ivy-clad turrets and Gothic battlements, it’s easy to imagine you’ve stepped back in time. The building work for this handsome manor house began in the 1600s, although it wasn’t until the Cunliffe-Lister family bought the property in 1882 that Swinton Park began to take the castellated form you see today. Swinton Park opened as a luxury hotel in 2001, and since then it’s been busy carving out a name for itself as Yorkshire’s top country hotel. After extensive renovations, including a new restaurant and spa, how...

SUITCASE Magazine | City Guide: Arequipa, Peru

Shadowed by three dramatic volcanoes, Arequipa’s setting is about as glorious as you can get. Much smaller than Lima and far less touristy than Cusco, Peru’s second-largest city has just as much cultural significance – and arguably  considerably more beauty. Arequipa’s centre gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 2000, and the city’s vistas, with the El Misti volcano looming behind, are magnificent. The iconic white baroque buildings are made from local white volcanic sillar rock and give the centre a grand and markedly European flavour. The city played a key role in Peru’s gastronomic renaissance and today is home to some of the country’s best restaurants, where you are encouraged to try national favourites such as alpaca and guinea pig, as well as the vast array of potato dishes....

Garden burial

by noreply@blogger.com (namkhim) @ Travellers and Paddlers


In the Jātaka story, a young woman tells her mother: "after I die ... collect my bones and bury them, and there plant a kaṇikāra tree. Then, as the winter comes to an end, and when the tree breaks into blossom in the spring, you will remember me and say: 'Such was my daughter’s beauty.'"
(Ja.V,302)

Ever since I read that story, I'd thought that when I die, I would like to be buried under the tree too. No tomb. No urn. No tablet. Just bury the ashes into the earth. Ashes to ashes. The garden shall be my cemetery. The tree be my tombstone.

I was thus fascinated to read that this is actually being done in Taiwan. The Taiwanese government had been promoting green burials. These includes mass cremations which are conducted twice a week and funded by the government, promoting a quiet and dignified funeral that minimize wastage, as well as sea burial and "garden burials".

Garden burials include "tree burials" (树葬) and "flower burials" (花葬). The government had allocated
land as burial gardens. The ashes are buried around the trees or flowers. The Taipei municipal government first experimented this in 2003. It has proven to be successful and has since allocated more land. One of these garden cemeteries is in the Yangmingshan national park, which I would be interested to visit the next time I go to Taipei.

While sea burial (scattering ashes into the sea) is occasionally being done in Singapore. I don't think there is such tree or flower burials.

Hopefully, when it is my time, there will be such burial grounds...
