The comforting quiet of a European city on a sunny Sunday afternoon

The guy at the register seemed excited to practice his English so I dropped any pretense of having worked on my French. He smiled and handed me my change, 37.20 from a 50, the last of the twelve I’d withdrawn from an ATM in Le Havre 9 days ago. His […]

A marketplace of the human body in Nassau Bahamas

A colorful flyer for a twerking competition, pink neon script on black gloss, was taped to the window of a restaurant in Pompey Square in Nassau Bahamas. A lone pair dined alfresco. The waitress sat on a high top chair, slumped over behind the hostess stand in the shade beneath […]

Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas Day in Naples Italy

So the cabin door slammed behind us. It was midday, it was fine. We collapsed onto our respective beds, me a king in the air in front of the 46″ flat screen embedded into the wall; her a twin trundle on the floor by the balcony facing Italian islands our […]

Trying To Find One Of The Best Restaurants In Dublin
