Legal Nomads | Telling Stories Through Food : Legal Nomads 52 Places to Go in 2015 A revitalized city welcomes the world. Sure, Italy is rich with romantic cities like Florence, Venice and Rome — but its most vibrant might just be Milan. And this is the year for tourists to explore its charms, as it hosts the 2015 World Expo. Twenty million visitors are expected to visit the city for the Expo, a mammoth event that runs from May through October and involves more than 130 participating nations and organizations sponsoring more than 60 pavilions. The Expo’s theme focuses on food, nutrition and sustainability practices — a fitting choice for a city steeped in Italian culinary traditions. The Expo coincides with the completion of a number of urban renewal projects that are infusing new life into overlooked quarters, like La Darsena, a formerly dilapidated harbor that will feature tree-lined promenades, bike paths and piazzas. And Milanese restaurants are earning acclaim for their increased focus on diverse regional cuisines from across the Italian peninsula.

You Should Travel Anywhere and Everywhere After College Graduation I graduated from college less than three weeks ago, closing the book on yet another chapter of my life. Two days later I was on a plane to Bangkok with nothing but a suitcase and a vague sense of what the next nine months would offer. Yet I am comfortable with my decision to momentarily put my life on hold, to keep at bay the demands of a conventional lifestyle for just a while longer because my life, to date, has been nothing but conventional. Arguably, the same can be said for many of the nearly 3.5 million young Americans that graduated this spring because the plan was clear from an early age: go to school, get into college, graduate, secure a good job, work, start a family, work some more and then retire. However, while in the throes of pursuing that prefabricated dream, I found myself questioning the familiar platitudes of how one’s life should seemingly go. Be reassured, my desire to come to Asia was hardly capricious. Stuart Ahlum
