KIPOS: Scrumptious Greek food in the heart of North Carolina

Salads on the counter top
KIPOS It's hard to find tasty Greek food outside of Greece. We know. We've spent a lot of time in Greece. Our experience with Greek restaurants outside of Greece is usually satisfactory — little more. That's because Greek food often takes on a "nationalized" flavor in other countries. For example, Greek food in Germany has a decided German flavor (yuck). Our...

Greenland: A cultural, political, and geographic oddity

Church, Southern Greenland
Greenland Greenland. This country tops our list as a destination travel multi-categorical oddity. It’s one of the most out-of-the-way destinations on Earth. It’s a place you’d hardly give a thought to visiting unless you’re a researcher studying the polar ice caps, global warming or indigenous cultures.

Shetland: Visit to lose yourself in unique cinematography and history

Iron age home built over bronze age home, The Shetland Islands

Imagine Your Life As A Roving Buffet

Around The World
Imagine Your Life As A Roving Buffet Forty-seven years ago, if you spent a summer in Russia as a foreign exchange student, dashed off to Paris for a week, then spent a week clickety-clacketing to Greece on a train before returning home, you were either desperate to finish college, quirky, a bit crazy, and in debt for six months to...

How to rove: Cruise your way to a new life

Watching a cruise liner @ Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
There's many ways to rove the world.  Most people fly — it's fairly cheap and fast. And most are single destination travelers. They'll fly to and hang out in a city or town or simply explore a geographic region. Time and money drive this behavior. But let’s face it. Flying is a hassle. Many wouldn’t do it at all if...
