During our short time on this planet, we’ve split the atom, traveled to space, built the limited slip differential and invented an umbrella for dogs. Yep, all clever stuff. But (most of) these inventions, discoveries and great leaps forward are collective efforts rather than the inspired genius and toil of one lonely, dedicated man or woman. Which begs th...

Whenever I'm traveling to a new city, I like to ask around for suggestions in order to find the best hotel. By "best" I don’t necessarily mean most expensive but instead, the most expressive. It’s my belief that the world’s very best hotels should, of course, be luxuriously but also reflect the destination.
