Vancouver: A (Hungry) Diner's Tour

We’re wrapping up our May food issue here at Travel + Leisure, and the delectable stories we’ve dished up (don’t read this one on an empty stomach, you just may eat the pictures) simply reaffirmed to me how vital a component dining is to a memorable travel experience. I, for one, explore a locale with both my eyes and my stomach. So, intrepid gastronaut that I am, on my first trip to Vancouver recently I saw all the sights (don’t miss the random Jimi Hendrix shrine tucked into the outskirts of Chinatown, or, if you have children, the wonderful Kids Market on Granville Island) while still squeezing in meals that ran the gamut from high-end to hole-in-the-wall, each worth writing home about. So let’s pretend you all are “home,” and here goes my paean.

Cartier's Calibre Multiple Time Zone Watch

Cartier Calibre Multiple Time Zone watch

In an era of mass-produced gadgets, there is a certain pride in knowing that a single Swiss artisan produced your watch by hand. Case in point: the 18-karat white-gold and alligator Cartier Calibre Multiple Time Zone. With the ability to track the time in 24 cities and a face that displays the hour in two places at once, this is the ultimate accessory for jet-setters. Price upon request.

East Dazzles West in Jeweler Amrita Singh's New Home Collection

201202-b-amrita-singh-necklacejpg

I've long been a fan of Amrita Singh's glittering jewelry, and I'm hardly the only one—Jennifer Lopez, Katie Homes, and Anne Hathaway are devotees of her ornate necklaces and gem-studded bangles. So when I heard Singh was launching a new home collection with an exclusive party at a penthouse suite at the Trump Plaza, I was intrigued. Would Singh's aesthetic translate into blinged-out interior décor?

I Heart Rimowa

201202-b-suitcase-1jpg

We have always loved the lightweight nearly indestructible Rimowa case, but the lack of space to quickly stash passports and headphones was always a problem. The Salsa Deluxe collection uniquely features three front pockets, providing us the desired room we’ve always longed for. Combining simplicity and durability in one sleek design, we consider this to be the ultimate gift for your globetrotting valentine!

The pictured Salsa Deluxe case in oriental red is $695 and available for purchase at Rimowa boutiques nationwide. For more information visit rimowa.com.

Found: The Perfect Travel Dress

Karina travel dress

Ladies, I have found it. Thousands of miles and hundreds of destinations later, I've found the dress that works on every single body type, and more importantly, travels effortlessly and elegantly. It's the Karina dress, available in 15 styles. You can stomp on the dress, crumple it up, and it will still look smooth and polished when you slip it on. Versatile and appropriate, I wear the dresses for both weekend getaways and work trips.

Protect Your Mobile Info From Cybercrime

cybercrime report

I once was a stubborn holdout on smartphones but now I’m a zealous convert. On a recent trip out of the country and out of my phone’s data network, I felt a little dazed and out of sorts without my constant handheld companion.  I confess that I used some free, unsecured WiFi during the trip.  While I was vigilant about the type of info I was sending and receiving, for all I knew, my smartphone (and passwords and bank info and all manner of personal data) could have been accessed during those brief, careful sessions.  And when I read this chilling cybercrime report from Norton, I vowed to change my sloppy smartphone habits.

4 Sea-Inspired Beauty Products

Giorgio Armani mother-of-pearl eye palette

Four new products inspired by the sea.

This Giorgio Armani mother-of-pearl eye palette ($98)—created by the brand’s couture jewelry designers—doubles as an allover illuminator.

An Isla Das Rocas scrub ($36) by Red Flower will soften your skin with botanical oils and sea salts from the islands off Brazil’s southern coast.

La Prairie produces nutrient-rich sea plants for its antiaging Advanced Marine Biology line, including a moisturizer ($135) for the face, eyes, and neck.

Meant to evoke the essence of a Maldivian beach, this Linnea’s Lights soy-wax candle ($30) has hints of cardamom, mandarin, and salty air.
