Miami • Visit the Gilded Age

Many know Miami for its stunning beaches, beautiful people, fancy cars, Cuban food, and raucous parties. But what you might not know is that Miami holds a hidden treasure: Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. This National Historic Landmark is one place that is definitely worth leaving Miami and South Beach to visit. Villa Vizcaya (as it was formerly named) was commissioned…

Fontanellato, Parma • Get Lost in the World’s Largest Labyrinth

The Labirinto della Masone is the biggest labyrinth in the world.  It seems weird, because its location is Casalbarbato, a small suburb close to Fontanellato, in the district of Parma. Apart from the labyrinth nothing happens there; I know it because I live 5 minutes from Casalbarbato and when I discovered that that old and forsaken park…

Zürich, Switzerland – Gratis

Zürich is one of the most livable cities, offers the highest salaries and arguably has the most fountains, but it is also the most expensive city.

Tokyo – A Museum For Our Inquisitive Selves

Tokyo is great, full of food, fashion and interesting technology.

Figueres, Spain – Dalí Theatre Museum

This tip has been suggested by our Barcelona based explorer, Matt Mills.

Only a few hours on the train north of Barcelona…

Brooklyn – The ‘It’ Museum

Just outside of Prospect Park, you’ll find New York City’s third largest museum: The Brooklyn Museum. This massive art collection is comprised of over 1.5 million pieces ranging from Egyptian antiquities to the works of Americans like Norman Rockwell. Why schlep all the way into Manhattan when there’s a colossal stockpile in our backyard? With…

Brooklyn – Relics and Knick Knacks

New York City is littered with museums; art, history, science, fashion. Whatever you can think of, New York’s got it. But what about a museum about New York City itself? At the City Reliquary in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, you’ll find just that. The Reliquary is a non-profit museum and city organization, that believes in the…

London – The Hunterian, not your Average Museum

London, England. Home of The Shard, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the iconic London Eye. Needless to say if you’ve visited London using any old guidebook you’ve probably already been wowed by these well-known sights but the chances are you haven’t seen, or maybe haven’t even heard of, the Hunterian Museum… and we’re…
