About L’appel Du Vide
There exists a psychological phenomenon in which perfectly sane people, with no desire to die, find themselves faced with a steep cliff and experience a strong desire to leap.

Note from Liz: Today, while I frantically prepare for my upcoming RTW trip, I have a guest post from my friend Caroline about her trip hiking in the UK’s Lake District. You can check out more of Caroline’s guest posts here and here. My brother Andrew, my sister-in-law Annie, and I decided to hike the Cumbria Way in June. What’s the Cumbria Way, you say? (Because that’s what everyone says.) I’m honestly not sure where I heard about it but I know I have heard from various Brits over the years that the Lake District in northwest England is one of the most beautiful … Read More
My friend, Caroline, recently went on a volunteer trip to Kenya. During her visit she had the opportunity to participate in a wildlife safari.

This is guest post by Tom Madrecki based on his experience interning at Noma and Le Chateaubriand. I was asked to write a post about the four months I spent last year cooking across Europe, in two of the world’s top 10 restaurants – Noma in Copenhagen and Le Chateaubriand in Paris. This isn’t (exactly) that post. For one, tragic as it is, the result of cooking in Europe isn’t what you might think. It is hardly a ticket to extensive travel and sightseeing, or to day-tripping across the French and Danish landscape in pursuit of long forgotten castles and … Read More
