Tips / Destination

Wales is a beautiful part of the British Isles and its compact size means you can see a lot in a short time. Two weeks means you can see the best of the country.

Start in the capital, Cardiff, and spend a few days exploring the amazing architecture, cultural events and famous nightlife before heading off to Blaenafon to visit the Big Pit mining museum and the ruins of the Ironworks. Here you will get an idea of the industrial history of Wales before appreciating the natural attractions of the beaches on the Gower peninsula. Take a hike along the steep cliffs and feel the wind in your face.

From here, head along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path on the St Davids peninsula, home to some outstanding coastline, and then head inland to Snowdonia. Climb Snowdon to look down over the countryside around, ride the famous narrow-gauge railways and explore the old slate mines, some of which have been turned into tourist attractions.

For a change of scenery, check out Portmeirion on the coast. This whimsical village sits right on the water and features a whole host of beautiful buildings in the Italianate style. More imposing architecture awaits at Conwy and Llandudno, a domineering castle best viewed from the seaside town.

Finish up at Llangollen, with its canal aqueduct, and visit the lakeside town of Bala for great cycling, watersports and even go-karting.

Tao, Hollywood

Just a block from Hollywood Boulevard is Tao, a Pan-Asian restaurant and bar that lives up to the glitz and glam of the city. Unassuming from the outside, the interior awes each and every sense.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Hari Mari Beachside Flip Flops

No matter how well you care for your flip flops, every summer it seems like the pair from last year disappeared into the ether, leaving you flummoxed and searching for a new pair as you depart for the beach.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
