Posted in: News


Some pieces that sparked our interest in Sunday’s New York Times travel section:

Cascais, the luxurious Lisbon suburb once exclusively populated by high-rollers and heads of state, opens up to travelers of all budgets.

And also of note:

Q&A: Airline Baggage – by the piece or by the pound?

Foraging: Geneva – Collection Privee
