Though a lot of my travels now focus on culinary topics and Jewish audiences (but not for the same papers ;-) ), I always love to sneak out to shop because coming home with something special is really delicious. Sometimes I buy a few things I regret, but most of what I bring back for my home and wardrobe I really use and enjoy. My favorite shopping cities so far are Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Rome. I also find some random places where there are bargains despite the weak dollar. For example, I found a fabulous winter coat from a prominent Dutch designer retailing for about $500 at a local TK Maxx (not TJ Maxx) in Dublin for $64.
