    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Paris Things to Do

    Loved the over all experience of visiting Eiffel Tower, but I failed to understand why is it often associated with Love, when it's history has got nothing to do with Love. (It was a structure made for an exhibition.) Anyways, the garden in front of the Tower is calm & you can spend hours just sitting there! We visiting there when it was raining,...

    Last visit April 2014 to the Rue de Rivoli location There are many menu items on Angelina's menu, indeed we saw several people eating sandwiches and salads but my focus for my birthday splurge was two of the menu items that Angelina is famous for, the hot chocolate l'Africain and the Mont Blanc. In the late afternoon we were able to walk in and...

    Amsterdam Things to Do

    I always found it droll travelers who are whisking their way across Europe and barely spend two days in Amsterdam. Sure there are a lot of strange smells but the Dutch are very pragmatic and welcoming to their masses of visitors. Take the VVV. I was benefited from this well run government outfit for lodging, maps, and information about the local...

    The first Hard Rock Cafe was opened in Old Park Lane in June 1971, with food normally on the menu at an American Diner with Rock and Roll music playing while you ate. Eric Clapton donated his Fender Guitar so he could reserve a seat at the bar and occasionally rock stars can be seen jamming here. The cafe has a very expensive collection of Rock...

We aren’t the types to dress up fancy (heels just don’t work on the streets of Rome!), but we wanted a place that we could be assured of a good meal, rather than take our chances....

    March 2014. Very surly waiter and, at times, quite rude. Extremely miserable Maître d who also, I might add, had the endearing habit of rolling his eyes whenever you asked for anything! We had to ask for a glass in order to drink our beer – twice! – then once the glasses eventually arrived, we had to ask for a clean one!. Again, had to ask for...

The food is the usual Heurigen food bread spreads like Liptauer (cheese), faschierte Laibchen (minced meat patties), roast pork. The wine is made (as usual with Heurige) by the...

This is a landmark where there is always a queue and well worth the wait. It's a take away which means basically no sitting down.

The visible part on the facade was often designed in a decorative shape. However, even...

    At the westernmost stop of tram 28, a big church from the 18th century, keeps the tomb of queen Maria I. That queen ordered the building of this church to pay a promise made if she had a male son. She did, but the child died before the end of construction with smallpox. Facing the church there's a pleasant small garden with the same name.

    Once you're done with the Jerónimos Monastery visit go to the Antiga Confetaria de Belèm for some Pastéis. The Pastéis crust is crispy and flaky while the filling is nice and creamy. It tastes very much like a Crème Brûlée but without the Brûlée. You can get the Pastéis in two ways: Either line up to pick up the pastries and go or just walk past...

    Does it say something about Brussels that arguably its main attraction is the small statue of a boy peeing into a basin? He's certainly become an institution - even spawning imitations (the peeing girl is a poor substitute). Many legends and traditions have grown up since the statues installation in the 17th century. The legends are mostly...

The restaurant overlooks a lovely square flanked by the St. Catherine's church. The metro stop is about 50 metres away and the Grand Place perhaps 10 minute walk. On a sunny day, it is wonderful to enjoy...

    I believe this is one of the "must see" tourist attractions in Prague, the Charles Bridge. Not quite like a circus but it is busy, crowded and touristy. Lots of souvenirs for sale and street performers trying their best to sell CD's and make their tips. The bridge tower is impressive. The views from the bridge are great! It crosses the Vltava...

Perhaps for that reason I was a bit afraid of walking into a tourist trap, but U Fleku is actually much more than that! Dating back to 1499, it is believed to be the city's oldest brewery. They brew only one type of beer, a flavourful dark lager, which...
