Fun Things to Do in Rome with Children

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

Aerial Photography – A Scenic Flight over Cerdanya and the Pyrenees

This past week, while in Cerdanya (a region of the eastern Pyrenees which is divided between France and Spain), I had the opportunity to head up in a small plane for a spectacular scenic look at the beautiful landscape of the Cadi mountain range and the Pyrenees. My flight from La Cerdanya Aerodrome took me [...]

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. The pace is slower, the air fresher, the hills more rambling, the grass greener. The stonewalls seem to frame each scene. [...]

The Land of Smiles

Who would not want to visit a place know as “the land of smiles?” Thailand has all the qualities daydreams are made of. Holidays to Thailand are becoming more and more popular all the time.

Rethink Orlando?

Orlando. The name conjures up all sorts of images in peoples’ minds. Some think tourist trap, while others think lifelong dream. Some think kids’ wonderland, while others think cocktails and fun. You might even encounter the odd scientist who sees things from a whole other point of view: physics. Truth be told, my family and [...]

3 Oddities in Lisbon, Portugal

This may sound strange, but I think that many places earn their charm from certain oddities. They range from myths and stories you hear about people living there or strange names, rules, laws etc. It is not any different in the city of Lisbon and before you spend a couple of days in one of [...]

2 Good Burger Joints in Rome, Italy

Some might consider what I am about to write about a sin, but I believe that you need a little break from even the best thing to appreciate it more. It’s just like they say (in a more metaphorical sense, of course): “Distance makes the heart grow fonder.” I adore Italian food and I can’t [...]

Pink’s Hot Dogs – A Hollywood Landmark

Pink’s Hot Dog stand is arguably the most famous hot dog stand in the United States; certainly in Los Angeles. Some people call it a nostalgic trip into the past, others call it too crowded, and some simply call it a hot dog stand. Whatever you call it, there is no denying that Pink’s Hot [...]
