    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Paris Things to Do

    We unfortunately did not book tickets in advance to visit the Eiffel Tower. We also did not think it a good idea since we visited Paris end of April and the weather would be very unpredictable. However, we chose to visit on the last day of our trip and it was pouring with rain, so having a ticket in advance would've been helpful. We did fall in...

    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...

    Automatic vending machines for burgers, chips (fries) and croquettes. It's pretty cheap and pretty terrible.

I sat close to the front door, but there are also benches at the back for couples in search of a little more privacy. I had a three course menu: bruschettone, some...

    London Things to Do

    Edward I built the gate which provided an entrance to the tower via the water. St. Thomas's Tower provided extra accommodation for the Royal Family, but since 1544 the gate has been known as Traitor's Gate as prisoners were brought along the river by barge and sometimes the heads of prisoners were displayed on pikes.

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...

    Vienna Things to Do

    I found St Stephan’s Dom (Cathedral) one of the most spectacular Cathedrals of our entire trip of Europe. Opened in 1160, it must be one of the oldest. I just love the amount of history. Outside, I most love the mosaic tiled roof. I also loved the enormous pipe organs inside. The height of the cathedral is 137 mts. For me, only Cologne Cathedral...

We met up with one of LJ's friends (from when she used to live here) and headed to Demel for lunch/dessert. A classic, historic and wonderful place to visit...just the desserts alone make this a "must-see"...

    The so called castle of Prague is a very interesting quarter, with historic buildings and squares, where this cathedral assumes the most relevant position. Showing several styles, denouncing the many adding and recuperation, in its more than 600 years, this cathedral deserves much more time than the quick look that I could have. That's one of the...

    This historic beer hall is featured in many tour guides as one of Prague's top attractions. 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...

    I first visited Florence in 2006 and ate at Za/'Za because, according to my guidebook, this trattoria was one of the best for value. And I have to say I agreed. I always passed it on my way back to my hotel, and every time I did so it was full of both visitors and (more importantly) Italians. The latter is my point-of-judgement; if the locals use...
