Our most recent T+L Twitter Chat on life-changing trips covered what it means to take a trip that is truly transformative—one that is imbued with the ability to relieve tension, overcome personal challenges, or give of oneself.
We asked our travel experts if they’ve ever had a travel experience that changed their life. Several agreed that Paris was life-altering, “mainly because of the proposals,” said Booking.com. Ivanka Trump agreed saying that Paris serves as a point of inspiration in her “design of hotels, clothing, and accessories.”
Last week, a six-clawed lobster was found off of Midcoast Maine, and just a week earlier a two-toned lobster was pulled from similar waters. But most lobster fans have been buzzing over the rare affordability of lobsters these days—prices per pound are the lowest they've been in 20 years. Maybe this is the one good side of Global Warming?
Americans consumed 231 million pounds of Maine lobster last year—a record high. The conclusion? A trip to Maine—especially in the late-summer or early fall—is not complete without eating lobster. In warmer months, lobsters molt, and their shells become so soft you can eat them with your hands, without the aid of crackers. Just ask for a "shedder" and you'll sound like a local. Maine native Luke Holden, of Luke's Lobster in New York City, shows you just what to do.
