Hempel Hotel - London

Review and Photos by The Cobrasnake The Hempel is a really quiet hotel located in Paddington. It’s far away from everything. When you are inside it feels really relaxing. The reception is very quiet and clean -as is the rest of the hotel. The room was completely white. The bed was so big you could comfortably sleep 4 people. Perfect for a last minute late night orgy. Its kinda hard to find things because everything is located behind hidden doors which are also white.

InterContinental - San Francisco

The drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco always seems a little shorter and a little easier. When I finally arrived there I was a little frazzled from the traffic and having anticipated a few less hours at the wheel. Making matters even more challenging was navigating downtown on a busy Saturday night before I could finally get to the hotel. I’ve come to expect good things from the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts over the years and tonight I was going to need those expectations to be met.

Coke Apartment - Amsterdam

After walking numerous kilometers (miles in US), I decided to hire a bicycle taxi to my flat from This was a great idea after quite a bit of walking with three bags of luggage. My taxi pulled up to a beautiful street on a canal. I was amazed with the location and appearance of the Coke flat after staying numerous days in a hostel. The Coke flat is on a gorgeous street called Kloveniersburgwal which is close to attractions such as Neumarkt, Rembrandtplein, and a short fifteen minute walk from Central station.

Mandarin Oriental - Bermuda

Bermuda is home to one of the strangest statues I’ve seen. On the shoulder of a busy roundabout stands a bronzed bearded man in a hat, six-and-a-half-feet tall, with a smile on his face and both arms raised, like he’s waving both hands or running to embrace one of the passing cars. We passed the statue in a cab on the way to Front Street, the main nightlife and shopping area on the island (more on that in a minute).

Block Island Getaway Part 2: Spring House

Alex Palmer For the first part of this story,click here. For our second day on Block Island, we began with one goal: mopeds. For an island with less than 10 square miles of landmass, most of it fairly smooth, the scooters make for an ideal way to get around, and Jenn and I decided to give it a shot. We charged up our energy with some lunch at Harry’s Café, a casual dining spot just off Spring Street (the fried fish sandwich was delicious, but I was surprised to learn after my order arrived that their specialty is pad thai—next time, perhaps).
