Where The Hunger Games came to life - The first instalment of the blockbuster film series was shot in North Carolina, including around a ghostly, abandoned mill town. http://bbc.in/1KH5Zhy
In a clearing surrounded by autumn-tinged trees, a row of near-identical clapboard houses stood before me. Their military alignment and similarity were the only organised aspects about them. Their wood had weathered to a gloomy grey; enormous holes gaped in cement-block foundations. Many had shattered windows. All were abandoned.

The taco taking the US by storm - The Korean-Mexican mashup took off in Los Angeles thanks to Twitter and a fleet of food trucks. Is the dish a passing fad or here to stay? http://bbc.in/1DDbpIo
I was in search of a food truck.

Ruined and restored in Cambodia - Exploring off the map in Banteay Chhmar helps acclaimed travel writer Don George understand the ruins of Cambodia – and of his own life. http://bbc.in/1tiFXi5
As Mr Kim navigated his car onto the puddled, potholed road that led to Banteay Chhmar, he turned to me. “Where are you staying?” he asked.

Why you should always travel solo
 - When Marcia DeSanctis set off on a travel writing assignment through France, she not only found a new love - but remembered why you should never travel with anyone else. http://bbc.in/16LBbiy
One night last February, while sleet whipped my windshield as I drove through Normandy’s early winter darkness into the port of Honfleur, my GPS sent me the wrong way down a one-way alley between two medieval walls. Alone, phone dead, with both side mirrors crushed like beer cans, I wanted to conjure up a companion, specifically my husband. For a panicked moment, I longed for a simpler time, when he drove while I traced the route on a Michelin ma...

Seven unknown architectural wonders - Forget the Taj Mahal and the Coliseum – some of the world’s most impressive structures remain out of the public eye. http://bbc.in/1uSrCV5
We’ve all heard of the Coliseum, the Great Wall of China, and the Taj Mahal. But what about the world’s undiscovered architectural wonders: the man-made marvels where most crowds don’t stray?

Living in the shadow of a giant - Thousands of people set out to climb Africa’s highest peak each year, entering into a revered tribe of adventurers. But in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, another tribe reigns supreme. http://bbc.in/1HkntEn
Each year, more than 50,000 people set out to climb Africa’s highest peak, joining a revered tribe of dedicated adventurers. But in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, nestled in the foothills, another tribe reigns supreme. The Chagga clan, one of more than 260 tribes in Tanzania, has been living in the laidback village of Marangu since the 19th Century, and their descendants, the Bantu people, began migrating to this area along the slopes of Kilimanja...

Stalking ‘a pure killing machine’ - Walking safaris in Botswana bring travellers out of the jeep – and their comfort zone – and onto the dry, African soil to hunt for one of the greatest predators in the animal kingdom. http://bbc.in/1CmkZAC
Taking a simple walk had never seemed so dangerous. Gathered around a camp table set up with maps, field guides – and gin and tonics – we plotted our stroll into the late afternoon heat. Normally jovial, our guide Paul Ditiro looked around the group, fixing us with a serious look. “The first rule is no running – at all,” he said, his usual glimmer of mirth buried in the gravity of the moment. “And we will walk in a single file line, with me at th...
