Humidor and box of cigars

Best Humidor For Cigars: Small, Electric, Cabinet, Desktop, Large, For Beginners, And More

I returned home from a trip to Cuba in early 2017 with a bag full of Cuban cigars. Since I only smoke them on special occasions, I wouldn’t use them right away. So I put them in the pantry in a zip lock bag. That is, until I found out that was a big mistake. Why? Cigars need to be kept at a certain humidity level or they lose their flavor. So, how do you keep them at a proper, consistent level of humidity? Learn all about humidors, how they work, what to look for, and our top picks.

Yoga Poses for Back Pain

Yoga Poses for Back Pain

Yoga is a collection of stretches that gradually increase in difficulty. When performing yoga, you not only focus on the part of the body that you are stretching and the performance of the stretching activity itself. You also place great concentration on your breathing, posture and balance.

The Ultimate London Restaurant Guide

When you travel, one of the best ways to get to know the culture is to eat the local food. So when we travel, we do a lot of it – eat that is. My parents (who we recently traveled to London with) tend to do a bit of homework in advance via guides and recommendations from friends as well as Frommer’s. Our bellies greatly appreciated this extra planning effort. So here’s a recap of our caloric intake in London, England, during the summer of 2013…

Dining in Spain: A Guide To Mallorca Restaurants

Delicious tapas, cold sangria and cervezas, laid back lifestyle, all in the magical and beautiful backdrop of the coast? What’s not to love about Mallorca. Mallorca, a Balearic island off the coast of Spain, it is a hidden gem if you ask me. Just a short flight from London (or direct flights to dozens of other European destinations) it is full of history, charm and a perfect mix of both sightseeing and relaxation. There are cathedrals, museums and of course shopping. And all extremely affordable. My first time to Mallorca, and hopefully not my last. I wanted to recap some of the places we stumbled upon as tourists in hopes that it would be useful for others should they get so lucky to experience this place (aka heaven on earth)…
