I’m not a big wine drinker. My vices are Sichuan hot-pot, shrooms, and Belgian lambic cherry beer, in that order. In fact, the last time we were in San Francisco for a wedding, I skipped Napa Valley and went to Alcatraz instead. So I wasn’t keen on the idea of visiting the Douro Valley, the oldest demarcated wine region in the world, just a 2 hour train ride from Porto. Despite it being a World Heritage Site, and despite our AirBnb host insisting we have to go, I didn’t feel the urge. It wasn’t until I saw an ad for “Quinta […]

Click here to jump right to the calculator at the bottom. A few years ago on a business trip down to New York I met up with one of my more colourful buddies in a Manhattan bar for drinks. Let’s call him Alex, though for privacy reasons, that’s not his real name. Alex and I were old classmates, and while I had stayed in Canada to work at a tech firm, he had moved to New York and gotten a job at one of the big banks on Wall Street. Evidently he’d been pretty good at it, as he was […]

There’s something magical about Porto, Portugal. And I don’t mean it in a ham-fisted “woo woo” kind of way. I mean it in a Harry Potter magical spells kind of way. Literally. Picture this. I’m sitting in a quaint little café beside the serene Douro river, biting into a flaky Pastel de Nata (Portuguese egg tart) with fluffy melt-in-your mouth egg center. As I reach for my decadent cup of foamy cappuccino, I see a black cape out of the corner of my eye, and what I think is a group of wizards turn out to be Portuguese university students […]

A few days ago, FIRECracker and I emerged from our AirBnb blinking in the sunlight after having been holed up in our rooms writing for 5 days straight. The two of us no doubt must have looked like zombies, stumbling down the sidewalk in our unwashed MadFientist t-shirts. As we sat down at a nearby cafe for a much-needed coffee, FIRECracker turned to me and asked “Hey, did we just un-retire?” It’s a legitimate question. When we started this weird little blog of ours, never in a million years did we think it would turn into anything big, and the […]
