I travel for the Food

A Few Days in Vienna

VIENNA – It's a town for grown-up activities (operas, horses) and guilty pleasures (indecent-looking hot dogs). This is the place for culture and glamour consumed in the most active way.

I always bring home slippers. Cotton in-flight slippers, terry hotel-room slippers, little beaded silk slippers from Singapore. It's nice to look down at your feet and remember where you've been. 

Draught Master, Pour Me Another

MONTREAL – As we enter spring break season, we pause to remind our readers that traveling for the beer can, in fact, be a noble pursuit.

Weirdest thing seen on travels: Giant sea turtles laying eggs at 2 a.m. on a Costa Rican beach. They were in a trance, making primal sounds. It smelled terrible, and it was all very confusing.

Best Day Ever: Rome

ROME – That was fast. Now that the cardinals have picked a new pope, we suggest a walk from the Pantheon toward spaghetti alla carbonara, fried artichokes, and zabaglione with melted chocolate.
