I thought that the bicycle couldn’t be made any more efficient. Combining the compact design of portable, folding bicycles and something like a Segway, with future-oriented features, the YikeBike is a safe, secure, ecological efficient, and portable personal transportation vehicle. It seems strange to call it vehicle because of its small size, but the YikeBike is capable of transporting you on any commute. Continue reading
In Chassey-les-Montbozon, France, one might find the perfect place for the ultimate relaxation: Floating Cabins. That’s right: Eco-friendly cabins are available for rent floating on the waters of the magnificent Les Grands Lacs, where nature is preserved at its wild and untouchable condition. A boat is the only way to access the cabins for two, while family cabins are connected by a wooden boardwalk. Continue reading
OK, so I have to ask: how come no one thought of this before? I mean, we’ve all been there, picking up and dropping our kids at soccer practice or making runs to the supermarket or shopping mall – wherever we’re driving, loose stuff in the back always seem to end up rolling and sliding from one side to the other, making a total mess.

Fast forward a couple of decades, and the tune I’m singing around the camp fire has changed. So it delights me to find the now-trendy alternative of glamorous camping, also known as glamping.

Sometimes I wish I had the feeling we are going camping, also adding more time to such outings!
Like cooking a simple meal on the spot for example, or boiling up some fresh herb tea. On the other hand, keeping it simple is really important, too. Being armed like the Nasa is not my cup of tea concerning camping equipment. It might as well be that Biolite’s kettle pot, which is just recently released is a good option to consider, combined with the same brand’s popular Campstove. Continue reading
Can nostalgia and adrenaline go together? At the beginning, I was very skeptical about it. I admit it. I wasn’t sure that me presenting what I’m about to today, here, would be the best choice as a matter of fact. I notified my editor about it and I was quickly given another option. Sometimes, all you need is just some time and space in order to be free to look into matters. The more I was digging into the Derringer cycles website, the more I was intrigued, my mind captivated by the boldness and well executed manner of the whole idea. Continue reading
