The 3 European Capitals of Culture for 2023: Elefsina, Timişoara & Veszprém

Charalambos Andronos/Timişoara 2023/Janos Illesi Annually since 1985, the cultural poobahs of the European Union have designated one or more of the continent's cities (and as of last year it's been three), as Capitals of Culture, focusing on their own cultural offerings and allowing them to organize a series of wider cultural events (many with a strong pan-European dimension) - which bring in considerable additional revenue; foster urban renewal; and raise their international profiles and…

Museums a major part of Boston's cultural tourism 'industry'

  Kalim Saliba For those interested in U.S. history, "Beantown" is a bonanza, with its many sites and neighborhoods rich in colonial, revolutionary, and republican history over its more than 400 years of existence. But the capital of Massachusetts is also one of this country’s great cultural powerhouses, in performing arts, academia, and museums. Not for nothing has it been dubbed “the Athens of America." Furthermore, the Boston metro area is especially packed with museums – more than 40, from…

  • Dear Route 66 Enthusiast:
    My name is Kevin Wong and I am a professional travel and landscape photographer who lives in Joshua Tree, California. My business, Mojave Desert Excursions provides guided photo opportunity tours in and near the Mojave National Preserve and I often travel along Route 66 where it passes through the Mojave Desert.

    This week, I launched a funding campaign on Kickstarter.com
    for a photographic essay book on the lives and faces of those who live on or
    near the segment of Route 66 that passes through the Mojave Desert (Ludlow,
    Amboy, Cadiz, Chambless, Essex, Goffs and Needles). I will also interview those
    that work on the road, the tourists that travel the road, and the passionate
    people that preserve and promote Route 66. This project will cost $3,000 and it
    was selected by Kickstarter for its project vision and for the quality of reward
    gifts. Yes, as a pledge patron you will receive a reward gift for each level of
    pledge! There are only 45 days open for this project, so don't delay...please
    make a pledge now and send me on the road to record the lives and faces
    on "Route 66 - the Mojave Experience". You can make a pledge of $1.00 or more by clicking here. If you find this project inspiring and worthy, please forward this post to your friends and networks. I am open to any and all recommendations and suggestions to this project.

    You can follow the project on facebook: "Route 66 - the Mojave Experience"

    Thank you,
    Kevin Wong
