Wild sea kayaking adventure in Sweden

On the third leg of his Scandi trip, Kevin Rushby and son kayak the fjords of a huge archipelago, camp on magical islands – and meet not a single other person• Scandi tour: part 2, part 1We round the headland and see the island for the first time: a distant ridge of bare granite with a lighthouse on one end. At the same time we hit the swell and the wind sizzles spray off the wave tops, whipping it into our faces as we drive the kayaks forward. For a moment I wonder if this island might be a little far out for us, too far from the safe inner channels that we have been following for two days now.Back at our starting point in a kayaking centre on the island of Tjörn, the owner, Patrik, had been very clear about our options, pointing out various camping spots on the 8,000...

My Himalayan journey – trekking to Shangri-La

A group walking holiday in the Indian Himalayas provides a rare chance to enjoy true solitude high above the cloudsAt the top of the Miyar Valley in the high Himalayas, a chain of seven tiny turquoise pools nestle below the snout of a formidable glacier. Each one looks deceptively inviting. We plunge in and our shouts, as we brave the icy water, echo off walls of rock into empty air; there is no one but our group around to hear. For miles in every direction there are only mountains; their white peaks, sheer slopes and pockets of high hidden valleys are filled with wild flowers for just a few months of the year, mainly June and July, when their cape of snow melts away.

Wild west Wales: beaches, birds and a brew

The coastline of Pembrokeshire’s Marloes peninsula is glorious and uncrowded, the wildlife on nearby Skomer island is superb, and a new cafe on the way to both is the icing on the cake At Musselwick beach, the yellow sand, hemmed in by black slate cliffs, is an idyllic picnic spot, as we discovered after persuading our two scowling boys to walk the 20 minutes from Marloes village. They duly built acomplicated sand fort just in time for the tide to roll in and destroy it – the beach is only accessible for four hours a day, two either side of low tide.As we puffed back up the steps, we passed a dreadlocked fisherman in black neoprene, clutching a harpoon, with a serious-looking knife strapped to his thigh. He was in search of sea bass. Continue reading...Original link

Summer on the lake: ‘It’s as Canadian as ice hockey’

In Canada, the summer ritual of decamping to the lakeside is passed down through generations – especially in Ontario ‘cottage country’, where our writer’s great-grandmother built a hideaway in the 1890sIt’s 9pm on a sweltering summer Friday. There’s neither a soul nor a breath of breeze on Lake Muskoka, 120 miles north-west of Toronto. On a long wooden dock, we load our scruffy 1966 Cutter, one of the first fibreglass runabouts on the lake. Ripples from the shifting weight erase its perfect reflection on these otherwise glassy waters. This is the final leg of our weekly 2½-hour pilgrimage from the city: we put in the groceries, then the overnight bags, and finally Belly the basset hound, who often misjudges the leap between the dock and the boat gunnels. Against a purple, orange and cyan sky, I take the helm and turn the key to fire up the old outboard. Then we...

Most amazing French cooking classes

A visit to France is not complete without devoting much of your time in the country to savoring its cuisine, which gifted to the world such gastronomic joys as croissants, camembert, saucisson, and macarons. Indulging in France’s culinary offerings is one thing, but diving into the process of creating these specialties from scratch and having a hand in their success from start to finish is an entirely different experience. Here are seven ways to immerse yourself in the tastes and smells of fine French food by becoming a baker, butcher, or fromager for the day — and then maybe a lifetime. 1. Learn to make macarons. Photo: Nitr/Shutterstock Macarons may seem simple, but it takes quite a bit more time to make them than it does to eat them. At Cook’n with Class in Paris — one of the city’s most popular cooking schools — aspiring bakers will participate in the...

Best street food in NYC

There’s no one cuisine that New York is known for. Italy’s known for pasta and France for bread, but NYC is a melting pot — as cliché as it sounds. Because people of so many cultures make their home here, it’s highly likely that you’ll find multiple restaurants serving completely different cuisines within the same block. The same goes for the many food carts scattered throughout our city. If you don’t want to be in a formal sit-down setting, or simply need to down a quick meal before jumping on the subway, you’re in luck because there is no shortage of street food in NYC — you’ll find it literally wherever you go. Here are the best seven places for street food and where to find them. 1.

7 Italian food festivals

One of the most authentic food experiences you can have in Italy is to visit a food festival or sagra. Not only do they epitomize the Italians’ dedication to their gastronomic culture, but they also exemplify the way Italians approach the ritual of eating. Eating is an event, a social occasion, and a moment to enjoy life that definitely shouldn’t be rushed. Food festivals are like one big Italian dinner, with a few historic parades, dancing, and music is thrown in for good measure. Here are seven food festivals you definitely need to attend — just be sure to pack your stretchy pants. 1. Fiera del Riso — Isola della Scala Photo: Fiera del Riso di Isola della Scala/Facebook Isola della Scala, near Verona, is already home to renowned restaurants that serve only risotto or rice-based products (including rice grappa), so it’s not surprising that it also hosts the biggest rice...

Pathfinder pics: family adventures in Zambia and Tanzania

Lonely Planet Pathfinder Jenny Lynn of Travelynn Family recently spent four months exploring sub-Saharan Africa with her young family. Of all the countries they visited, Zambia and Tanzania stood out as real highlights of the trip – here's why. People raised their eyebrows when we told them we were going to borrow our friend's Land Rover Defender and travel around Africa with our two boys (aged 2 and 4). Many warned us of the corruption, the terrible roads, the poverty, the malaria... surely Africa just isn't a place to travel with kids!? After four months traversing the sub-Saharan continent, I can honestly say that Africa is a pretty awesome playground for little ones. From running down sand dunes, to spotting elephants and lions on a self-drive safari; jumping in waves crashing onto pristine beaches, to being thrilled by the sheer thundering force of Victoria Falls – all the while camping...

New Zeeland: happy returns to the Netherlands coast

As a child, Caroline van Keeken hated family trips to this sleepy coast. But it’s now a popular holiday destination – and it turns out travelling with her livewire father is terrific funTwelve years ago, my father bought a holiday home in Zeeland, a coastal province in the southwestern Netherlands. Since then he only ever spends time at home – in Amsterdam – when his plants need watering.According to the latest figures, over half of all tourists visiting the coast of Zeeland are Dutch. As a child, I spent many a holiday here. However, during these brief escapes to Zeeland I always longed to escape back to Amsterdam. I did not know what to do with myself amid the endless, deathly quiet fields of maize, and the locals my age whose dialect I could not understand. Besides, I had secret but no less serious plans to launch an international career as...

Twilight house is up for sale

Bella and Edward found their perfect piece of forever and moved on from her family home in Forks, but that just means that you now have your own shot at a blissful Twilight-esque lifestyle — her house from the movies is now up for sale. Whether you prefer the books or the movies, are team Edward or Jacob (or Switzerland), there’s no denying that some of the movie’s most pivotal moments occurred there. At the start of Twilight, Bella moves from Phoenix to Forks, Washington, to live with her father, Charlie Swan. The house is where Edward picked Bella up for the first time in a shiny silver Volvo (and several times thereafter), where Bella researched Edward’s abilities and came to the conclusion that he was a vampire, where they had their first kiss, and where she and Charlie had their argument toward the end of the film. And, maybe less...

Do the Florida National Scenic Trail

Florida is renowned for many things — sandy beaches, amusement parks, traffic lights that change inexorably slowly, Cuban food, etc. Trekking through pristine national wilderness? Not so much. But the Sunshine State is actually home to one of the country’s most underrated treks — the Florida National Scenic Trail. The 1,300-mile trek from Big Cypress National Preserve in the tropical southern part of the state north to the Gulf Islands National Seashore south of Pensacola doesn’t get nearly as much attention from the backpacking community as the heavily trafficked Pacific Crest Trail or Appalachian Trail, but there are some serious advantages to making this your next backpacking destination — especially if you haven’t done a long-distance trek before. Here’s why the Florida National Scenic Trail should be on your radar and everything you need to know to make an expedition there happen.

Debates all bartenders have

No group of people can agree on everything, bartenders included. There are some topics in the bartending community that have been debated for decades. While there is no clear-cut right or wrong, feel free to pick your side in these seven classic bartender debates. 1. Jigger vs. free pour This debate is a case of accuracy vs. style. When we use a jigger, we can create cocktails that follow an exact recipe. This system is great for minimizing waste and maximizing consistency, but it lacks flair and individuality. While free pouring is often a faster method and it can be a mesmerizing show for the customers. But there is definitely more room for error; this method requires a lot of faith in your skills. 2. Spirits: first or last? The traditional approach is cheapest ingredients are the first thing to be poured when building cocktails. That way, if a mistake is...

Fake power outlet airport prank

If you think there’s nothing worse than showing up at the airport with a low charge on your phone or laptop and failing to find a power outlet, turns out, there’s something worse. Much worse: Actually finding an outlet, then realizing it’s not an outlet at all but a sticker. Apparently, this is the most recent prank sweeping the nation. Stickers with a realistic power-outlet design are being placed all over airports; then, the twisted prankster simply waits for an unsuspecting traveler to fall victim to the illusion. A recent good-sported victim, Brandon Ewing, posted a picture of the sticker on Twitter with the caption, “Whoever put up this fake sticker of an open outlet at the airport, you are now my enemy for life.â€� Whoever put up this fake sticker of an open outlet at the airport, you are now my enemy for life. pic.twitter.com/TYEJKmY6Zg — Brandon #BeForTheGame (@Atrioc) August...
