MagoGuide Portland 2.2 is out in the Apple App Store – better than ever. We’ve added four new places to the app: Tapalaya, American Local, The Farmhouse Kitchen, and Castagna Cafe. If you already have MagoGuide Portland, but sure and update to get these latest places. If you don’t… what are you waiting for?
In honor of Memorial Day: Team Mago spent two weeks in the early summer of 2014 exploring the fields of valor that made up The Western Front of The Great War as well as many of its antecedents and successors. We published a book about our experience… MagoGuide’s European Battlefield Tour.
Team Mago has been traveling all over Canada and Europe for the last several months and have observed some trends in fashion: distressed jeans, short skirts, and a throwback to the 60s. See the latest fashions in our post.
MagoGuide Travel Guide has a new look that even more mobile friendly than ever. Check it out.
Like Pantelleria, Andalusia has been occupied forever, overrun, conquered, and reconquered. These include the early Iberians, Carthaginians/Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths, Byzantines, as well as the later Castilian and other Christian North Iberian nationalities who conquered and settled the area in the latter phases of the Reconquista. All of these influences can be seen in the architecture and customs of Andalusia.
Team Mago is currently on Pantelleria, a small island about midway between Sicily (62 miles away) and Tunisia (37 miles away). Absolutely everything about Pantelleria is interesting including the geology, geography, history, agriculture, people, and recreation.
Check back every once in awhile. We’ll be updating this post while we’re on the island.
While fishing for trout at the pond in my father-in-law’s Northwest Montana home, I noticed that there were hundreds of beautiful, silent, blue flying insects near the edge of the water. Abandoning my fly rod for my camera, I lay on my stomach amid damp earth and pungent Canada goose droppings to take some close up photos.
In early 2014 Team Mago had the opportunity to tour European battlefields and memorials. In honor of Memorial Day, we’ve posted some photos from Belleau Wood and a video that we think you’ll enjoy.
Salt and Straw (with stores all over Portland and in Los Angeles too) specializes in home-made ice cream made from only the freshest of ingredients. But the flavors are very strange and not to everyone’s tastes. Check out our latest Portland restaurant review.
There is nothing better than getting up early and taking a walk in Portland before the crowds and cars are out. Here are some flowers that I found this morning.
