A Second Story (ft. Munich) | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with #SimplyMunich. I received a complimentary Munich sightseeing bus tour with Gray Line, but all opinions are my own! My approach to Munich was a bit like the Going on a Bear Hunt poem. If you can’t go over it, can’t go under it, can’t go around it, you’ve got to go through it. You see, I didn’t immediately feel a connection with Munich. It was beautiful, for sure, but it felt at first like the kind of place where you’re free to look, but not touch. There were palaces (oh the palaces!) and gothic churches. The city was littered with royal residences and the sidewalks weren’t caked with chewed gum like I’d come to expect in Berlin. There were refined restaurants and cocktail bars and designer stores that I wouldn’t dare enter in Levis. I needed another way to connect with the city that didn’t involve so much snubbing, and so I went up. Up to the second story of a sightseeing bus. While bus tours aren’t normally my scene, I’ve taken a liking to this method of exploring a city over the past few years. Rather than getting lost in a tangle of U-bahn […]

If you asked me what the year ahead was going to look like, I don’t think I could have told you. I didn’t know where I’d be in three days, much less, where I’d be at the same time next year. But isn’t it funny how, ready or not, next year always seems to come. I don’t share too much about my personal life on Travel Outlandish because I don’t consider myself to be “that kind of blogger”. But, what the hell. In case you were curious, 2017 was a big one. It was a year of some significant losses. It was also the year that I trekked in Patagonia on my own, the year that I finally learned Spanish, the year that some major relationships evolved, the year that this blog took off, and the year that I moved to Berlin. I’d be lying if I said it was all painless, but it wasn’t all bad either. It was a year full of monumental, messy, hard-to-handle lessons that will [hopefully] make 2018 that much better. So, from Peru to Germany, […]

Going Wild: 15 Treks in South America | South America

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Let’s think of South America as the world’s playground. Everyone has heard of the Inca Trail, but when it comes to treks in South America, that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. You can get the most from your time on the continent by exploring its limits. You can cross borders on your own two feet or be at the top of a volcano before the sun has even peeked over the horizon. And that, guys, is what adventure travel is all about. There are thousands of trails to choose from in South America. Knowing just which trek to pick can be your first big challenge. I collaborated with some extra rad adventure travelers to detail the best treks in South America so you don’t miss a single one. Let’s get to it! Some photos have been edited by me and may not reflect the style of the photographer.  The Best Hikes & Treks in South America Huemul Circuit | Argentina Nearest City: El Chaltén, Argentina // Difficulty: Hard // Duration: 4 Days The Huemul Circuit may just be 63km, but it’s considered one of the most challenging treks in South America.

On an Island in the Sun (Lake Titicaca Remix) | Bolivia

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

You’ll leave Isla del Sol, an island on Lake Titicaca, claiming to have day tripped on “the world’s highest commercially navigable lake”. I bet you’ve just been waiting your whole life to say that, huh? But having seen many of the world’s relatively oldest, biggest, unnecessarily tallest, and arbitrarily best attractions, I can safely say that Lake Titicaca is absolutely worth a visit. It might be the world’s highest, and South America’s second largest, but grandeur aside, it is a lovely place exploding with Bolivian culture. Stretching some 190 km, Lake Titicaca stands besides the Great Lakes in size with a delightfully Bolivian twist. On a quick jaunt from Peru, you’ll find the shores of Copacabana speckled with hardworking women in bowler hats, wearing braids that would take finer haired women a lifetime to grow. You can order trout fished straight from the water, cooked at least thirty different ways, for $3 a plate. The balsa boats call to pre-Colombian times, and no one really mentions the swan-shaped boats and XORBS in the harbor. Lake Titicaca is surprisingly kitschy (as evidenced by the very weird hillside hotel) but these are the things that bring Lake Titicaca from slightly overrun natural wonder to delightfully […]

Stay Strange: A Design Loft in Munich | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with The Flushing Meadows in Munich. I received a complimentary night in exchange for my honest review, but all opinions are my own! “F…L…U…S…H…I…N…G…M…E…A…D…O…W…S” The light bulbs flickered on in sequence, both spelling out the name of the hotel and casting light onto the otherwise vacant Fraunhoferstraße. You’d never know that Munich is home to 1.43 million people if you happen to arrive on a Wednesday after 8pm. Behind the heavy door was ambient music and an elevator directing me to the fourth floor. The high ceilings and exposed pipes in the hallway felt unapologetically cool. I was impressed and I hadn’t even checked into my room yet. Looking for a unique hotel in Munich with a distinctly cool character? Let me introduce you to the Flushing Meadows. About The Flushing Meadows The Flushing Meadows is a design hotel located in the Glockenbach. The space was initiated by Arnold/Jäger/Werner. The trio are designers, gastronomists, and architects by trade, and you’d never even guess that The Flushing Meadows is their first endeavor into the hotel industry.

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Berlin was still devastated from WWII in 1957, and you’ll find a mountain of rubble in Grunewald Forest to prove it. Debris too much to bury and too heavy to move was instead piled into a mound; On top of a Nazi military-technical college, at that. They called it Teufelsberg (Devil’s Mountain). Since its construction, Teufelsberg has served many purposes. For a time, it was equipped with ski jumps, but the jumps began to decay after 30 years of non-use. Next, it served as an NSA Listening Station. In 1963, US Allied forces selected Teufelsberg as a superior vantage point for listening in on Communist communications. The structure was abandoned after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. In the 1990’s, investors bought the site with plans to build a hotel and apartments, but the project was deemed unprofitable, so they never built. There have been talks of both preserving and destroying the harrowing reminder of  history, but the towers of Teufelsberg still stand. And today, where there was once ruin, there are murals. Closets overflow with unused supplies, and there are only beams where walls once stood. You tread through fields of shattered glass and concrete crumble. Handrails rust and canvas […]

Why You Should Learn German in the City | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with the Speakeasy Berlin. I received complimentary lessons in exchange for an honest review, but all opinions are my own. German is tough to learn. After one month of living in Berlin, I was still fumbling through the most basic interactions. I spent time with more international people than Germans, and the Germans I did know switched to flawless English the minute they saw me sweat. My accent was complete scheiße. Without grammar, I was nervous to speak. I’d managed to learn a few phrases on accident, but if I wasn’t ordering beer or catching a train, my German was next to useless. Even still, it seems learning German in Berlin is going to be a lot harder than learning Spanish in Ecuador. I realized if I ever hoped to tackle this feisty, lawless, not-so-romantic language, I was going to need German classes in Berlin, and lots of them. Thinking about learning German in Berlin? Here’s everything you need to know about learning German with Speakeasy Berlin. Where to Learn German Abroad Are you moving to Germany to learn German OR learning German because you moved to Germany? If your focus is on studying German, you should make […]

The Fast (5:2) Diet

by noreply@blogger.com (Jenny Singleton) @ Culinary Wanderlust

I'm not one for fad diets. I just don't believe in them, because they just seem doomed to fail. I'm a firm believer that most people who lose weight do so through lifestyle changes in terms of diet and exercise, and not from subsisting solely on shakes or cabbage soup or grapefruit. And even if they do lose weight that way, (and I'm sure some do), they gain it back because who could keep eating nothing but cabbage soup and grapefruit for the rest of their lives? Who would want to?

Even though I firmly believe this to be true, it also doesn't work for me. I'm not saying that if I could stick to a reasonable amount of calories each day and exercise regularly that I wouldn't lose weight; I know I would. The thing is that I don't have the discipline or the willpower. I'm ridiculously good at finding excuses not to exercise, with anything from a bit of rain or it being the wrong time of day (traffic-wise) to fatigue or a scratchy throat preventing me from exercising. I once didn't go to the gym because I didn't have my headphones with me. I'm the queen of excuses. And it's discouraging, because when I do get motivated and find the time to exercise regularly for a few weeks, something always happens to stop me just as I'm getting into it, like a sprained ankle or illness or simply a busy week, and I have a lot of trouble getting started again. This time of year it's simply too hot to exercise outside, and I don't have a gym membership. It's that simple.

I have similar problems when it comes to food. I know full well what I should and shouldn't eat, but you may have noticed that I like food a lot and have a bit of a sweet tooth (understatement of the year!). I try to eat well, and I actually think I do ok at it compared to what I see some other people eating, but I definitely have my weaknesses and it's virtually impossible to say no when something delicious is right in front of me.

And yet I know that I have it in me. I've had a Snickers bar in my fridge for months. I know it's there, and now and then I see it and I leave it there. For what, I don't know, but the same thing happens with the can of coke on my counter that's been there since Christmas and the chocolate chips in my fridge that only very occasionally do I dip into when I'm having an intense chocolate craving and there's nothing else around. So how is it possible that these things can just stay there without me touching them, but I think I have no willpower?

I don't have an answer for this, except that possibly my sweet cravings attack more when I'm at work than at home, and when I do get them at home I know I'll be happy enough with something smaller than an entire Snickers bar or a whole can of Coke. Hence the chocolate chips very slowly disappearing!

The solution for all of this may be the Fast Diet. A few weeks ago when I got back from my vacation at home, my friend Christine mentioned that she was on a diet. The thing is, Christine is not at all what anyone would call fat, so I was a bit surprised. When she explained it, I confess that my first thought was that it would be impossible or unhealthy, which is my reaction to most fad diets. However, after giving it some thought and looking at the web page for it, I decided to look into it further. Christine gave me a copy of the BBC program that started it all, called Eat, Fast and Live Longer, which I dutifully watched, and I downloaded the book and gave it a quick read. It turns out that this diet isn't just about weight loss, but there are other possible health benefits too, such as lowered cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and some people report more energy and even higher mental acuity! I'm not going into the science of it here; if you're interested just check out the website and/or the book.

The diet is based on Intermittent Fasting, which in this case means severely restricting your calorie intake for two days a week (which can be non-consecutive) and eating normally for the other five days. In this sense it's not even truly fasting, because on the "fast" days women are allowed 500 calories, and men 600. However, if you've ever tried restricting yourself to 500 calories in a day, you'll know that it's really not very much!

The beauty is that while those two days suck a bit, the other five days are ok! They are what make the two fast days bearable. Telling myself that no, I can't have that chocolate or cheese or go to chicken street on a fast day is much easier when I know that I can have it the next day. Obviously, I can't completely overindulge on the regular days, or that would completely defeat the purpose, but I actually haven't found that I've wanted to. I do find, however, that while previously I might have hesitated to make those cookies I'm craving, now I just do it, so maybe that's not so good!

The thing is, the lack of sweets on a fast day doesn't bother me much. I'm having a different sort of problem. Obviously, the best thing to do is to choose food on your fast day that is going to stick with you (low GI) which means lots of oats, beans and other legumes, and tons of veggies. I'm struggling with this. I usually start my day with a breakfast of some oats, plain yogurt, and strawberries, (which isn't far off a normal day's breakfast for me) then take a lunch to work which usually consists of a little bit of prawn, tuna, or chicken breast, along with some couscous, quinoa, beans, or lentils and a ton of veggies. I realized pretty quickly that these meals were going to have to not always taste the same, and I made a pretty successful chili-type mixture last week, but this week's meals have not been so great. My curry I made for Tuesday didn't go down too well, and today I only ate half of my chickpea, quinoa, and tomato salad. Not because I wasn't hungry, I just didn't want to eat it. The thing is, both of those meals should have been delicious.

This actually concerns me a little. Have I unwittingly made my body so accustomed to fat and sugar and salt that when my meals are lacking that, I can't even eat them? How do I change this?

So after today's meal didn't even get completely eaten, I've realized that I'm going about this all wrong. I'm trying to make myself eat things twice a week that I don't normally consume all that often, and my stomach and tastebuds are rebelling. I'm thinking I'm going to have to stick to things I'm used to eating (but obviously in much smaller quantities than normal) if I'm going to keep this up. I'm not saying I'll be eating chocolate cake on fast days or that the quinoa and couscous will completely disappear, but I'm going to have to find ways to adapt my usual meals to somthing fast diet-friendly.

I know full well there are recipe books for this diet out there, and I guess it's time I buy one. I've been resisting because I suspect that most of the recipes in them are meant to be freshly cooked, rather than heated up in a microwave at work. However, I'm also thinking that I should change my eating schedule to a lunch-dinner or breakfast-dinner, rather than the breakfast-lunch I was doing, and that will allow me to actually cook myself an evening meal of things I like! It might also help with the fact that on fast days I seem to have trouble sleeping (although it's probably too soon to say if it's that for sure).

I've been doing this for four weeks, and I'm not entirely sure it's doing anything, but I'm going to stick with it because what I typically do with any kind of exercise or diet routine is expect amazing results too soon and thus get discouraged and give up. And although on the fast days I get hungry, by the time it reaches 7 or 8 o'clock in the evening, there's no way I'm going to give in and eat then, because the entire day of food restriction will have been a waste, and I really don't want to have to do it AGAIN to make up for it! And maybe if I switch my eating schedule around, I'll find a way to make this work better for me. People seem to be getting results no matter what time of day they consume their calorie quota, so it's just a matter of figuring out how to make it work for me.

So, if you're still reading this, watch this space, and you might see recipes of things I make for my fast days, and actually want to eat. I'll also update every so often, so you'll know if it's actually having any effect!

51 Unique + Fun Things to do in Chile | Chile

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

If you’re traveling down the Gringo Trail, Chile might feel unexpectedly familiar. There are no ramshackle busses or alpacas wandering the streets. Instead, there are arbitrary laws, expensive cups of coffee, and high speed internet connections. In some weird way, you might miss the chaos. I wondered whether I was making a mistake by blowing the rest of my travel budget on a place that looked so much like home (and cost as much, too). But there’s something special about Chile. After I really got to know it, Chile became one of my favorite countries. Perhaps it was because I finally started to speak Spanish or was traveling on my own for the first time in years, or perhaps it’s just because Chile is diverse,  dynamic, and completely fascinating. Want to experience Chile beneath the surface? I bet you’ll dig it too. From geodesic domes where you can spend the night to the otherworldly nature of Patagonia, here’s are some of the weird, wild, and totally fun things to do in Chile. Very Chilean Experiences 1. Start up north for the gentle surf & sun in Arica (Arica y Parinacota) 2. Head into Valle de Elqui for a pisco tasting tour by bicycle (Coquimbo) […]

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]

Bowl of Funk: A Little Memoir on Texture

The First-Timer’s Travel Guide to Chiang Rai, Thailand

by JB Macatulad @ Will Fly for Food: Travel + Food Guides

Chiang Rai is regarded as the northernmost "large city" in Thailand, though it isn't actually that big. It's much smaller and less developed as a tourist destination than neighboring Chiang Mai. It's perhaps best known for Wat Rong Khun, a striking all-white structure that serves as both a Buddhist temple and an art exhibition.

Long Neck Village: One of the worst attractions in Northern Thailand

by Joanna @ The Blond Travels

There are attractions in Thailand that I would never want to see. These include so-called tiger kingdoms, where wild cats are drugged and forced to pose for photos with tourists, or places where elephants are trained to paint pictures or ride bicycles. I wouldn’t visit them because mass tourism is distasteful, but also because certain […]

Many people wonder what vaccinations they should get before they visit Thailand. There is a lot of information about it on the internet.
