Places to Eat Around Champs-Elysées in Paris

Over the years, the area around Champs-Elysées in Paris has gained the reputation of being a tourist trap.

Venice and Verona Make a Great Pair – Romantic Italy

The mere fact that Venice sits in the middle of the sea gives it the feeling of being a fantasy island. People that have stayed in Venice apartments would confirm the magic of this city. Casanova or the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) adds to the mystic and romantic reputation of Venice. To this […]

One of my first stops during a recent trip to the Girona Pyrenees was in the small, captivating town of Puigcerda in Cerdanya.

Without even mentioning the innumerable sights and monuments of Rome, most people already consider the Eternal City to be a true cultural treasure chest.

Up, Up and Away in a Hot Air Balloon Over the Pyrenees

After awaking at the crack of dawn, I walked outside my hotel on a crisp, clear morning and saw the stars shining as bright as I have ever seen them shine. I could not get the song ‘Up, Up and Away’ by The 5th Dimension out of my head. As a kid, I remember hearing […]

Countryside Escapes in the United Kingdom

Whether you live across the pond, around the world, or a simple train journey away, a visit to the U.K.’s countryside is like stepping into a perfect little painting that has come to life.
