36 Hours in Copenhagen

The mystique of Copenhagen is multifaceted, but for many, it begins with food. The Danish capital is the standard-bearer for New Nordic cuisine, a movement sustained by a society that encourages homegrown talent, in this case chefs experimenting with local ingredients.

Acting French

It’s hard to learn a new language. But it’s way harder to learn a new culture. I spent the majority of this summer at Middlebury College, studying at l’École Française. I had never been to Vermont. I have not been many places at all.

36 Hours in Chicago

Chicago is a city that changes noticeably with the seasons. It is endlessly beautiful in the warm months, when the sidewalks transform into cafes, the Lakefront Trail becomes a Divvy Bike highway and the beaches along Lake Michigan might be mistaken for Miami.

Stop being a tourist

Look at these idiots. Oblivious, naïve, and probably American. Even their execution of the quintessential holding-up-the-leaning-tower-of-Pisa pose is deeply flawed.

36 Hours in Washington, D.C.

While most Americans associate Capitol Hill with Congressional misadventures and general dysfunction, thousands of people — senators, reporters, congressional aides, artists, working-class long-timers and young families — call it home.

How to avoid every common mistake when booking a flight

This originally appeared at LinkedIn. You can follow Peter here. As the Travel Editor for CBS News, people expect that I spend weeks, even months, researching the process and logistics of travel. And I do.

36 Hours in Prague

For people who haven’t traveled to Prague recently, the Czech capital might seem like a known quantity: a city with a thousand years of architecture, cheap beer and often boring restaurants where the most unusual ingredients are the doughy dumplings.

Has Travel Become Another Exercise in Narcissism?

The concept invaded my consciousness as only an insidious radio advert can. Then came that slogan: “Travel yourself interesting,” and here was the rub — the once tedious Mr. Nuttall had been injected with an ebullient charisma by way of a simple trip abroad.

36 Hours in Madrid

In the five years since Spain’s economy took a nose-dive, madrileños never stopped going out, but they did become more judicious in their spending.

How to Travel to Exotic, Expensive Cities on $50 a Day

OK, I’ve had a few short posts recently. Now it’s time for my favorite: a post you will want to print out, refer to often, and take with you on adventures. In this case, we’ll explore budget travel that is luxury travel.

36 Hours in Upper Manhattan

In the 18th century, the northern half of Manhattan Island served as a bucolic escape for New Yorkers with the cash to afford it and the horse and carriage to get them there.

The Busy Professional's Guide to a One-Day Business Trip

36 Hours in Seattle

The sky is often gray, the residents tend to be muted (except when cheering their teams), calm waters lap the green cityscape, but beneath its mild exterior, Seattle has always careened wildly between boom and bust. For better or worse, boom is the mode of the day.

Game of Thrones

Seven years ago, I flew business class on Qantas from Australia to California, a thirteen-hour trip.

36 Hours in Kyoto, Japan

A full 36 hours, 36 days, or even 36 weeks could be spent exploring the thousands of Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, Zen gardens, palaces, pagodas, parks and walking paths in Kyoto, the former imperial capital of Japan.
