For travelers looking for a unique museum experience in Stockholm, Sweden, head to Fotografiska, The Contemporary Museum of Photography Art & Culture. Fotografiska is a living and vibrant place where photography comes to life. The museum features photography and visual arts from around the world by all types of artists, from well-known photographers to newer generations of artists.
The museum features a variety of different exhibitions changing every couple of months. For a couple more days, the In Bloom exhibition greets you when you first walk in, a tribute to nature and its everlasting inspiration, providing us with a source of strength and a calming oasis. This exhibition features a collection from 16 different photographers, including international and Swedish artists.
Another main exhibition, Santa Barbara by Diana Markosian, captivates visitors as it takes you through the ups and downs of Markosian’s life. The exhibition starts with her early years, when her family gave up their life in Moscow for a new one in California, leaving her father behind.
Markosian’s family loved the American soap opera, Santa Barbara, which defined the American Dream for them. Little did they know the soap opera would affect their lives more than they thought. The exhibition examines her family history both through staged photographs and a film re-enactment of Markosian trying to see her life through her mother’s perspective to understand the sacrifices she made for them to become Americans.
Although these are just two exhibitions featured in the museum, there are other smaller ones found within, too, featuring visual, auditory or a mixture of both. After touring the exhibitions, head upstairs to enjoy lunch or dinner at The Restaurant or Bistro Bread & Wine, both bringing a unique farm-to-table experience to visitors.
If you don’t have a trip to Stockholm in your future, there is another location in New York featuring different exhibitions.
Early on, pickleball had something to do with pickles. Pickles the dog, that is. In one story, the game was named for a family dog that ran off with the ball between sets.

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
Whether it's the people, the craic (fun) or the coasts, travelers always find something to love about the island of Ireland. What fills your heart?
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
