We frequently use them as a reference, but ask the common traveller to list you the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and they might do well to tick off three…
How well do you know them? Taj Mahal? Iguazu falls? Pyramid of Giza? Well, you’re right….kind of: these three all appear in separate lists.
In truth, there are several world wonders lists, and some countries even have their own ‘wonders’ list.
To clarify things we’ve decided to make a rundown of the three most important ‘World Wonders’ lists:
The New 7 Wonders, the Ancient World Wonders, and the Seven Wonders of Nature. Be prepared to be blown away!
As a follow-up to our Top Berlin blogs : a tale of two cities, we’ve asked our bloggers to provide some great insiders tips for an unforgettable trip to Berlin!
My standards for a bed aren’t very high. I just need a comfortable mattress and a frame to set it on. What else could you need? No muss, no fuss!

If, like me, you’re a massive fan of the Royales, you’re probably getting quite excited about the upcoming Diamond Jubilee celebrations. On 5th June Queen Elizabeth II will slip into her posh frock and trot out to paint London town red.

They’re one of the most famous families in the world, but how well do we really know the Windsors? Well, that’s not really their name, for one….
Who divorced who? Who is known for their outrageous diplomatic gaffs? Which married royals are related to each other?
Think you’re a right royal expert? Jump into my Royal Rumble and test your mettle with this teasing and pleasing trivia. Once you’re done, let us know how well you did!
Airport dining sounds about as much fun as medieval surgery. Greasy, undercooked, carelessly composed and poorly presented ‘food’ is pretty much standard fare in far too many airports.
I’ll happily browse the duty free for deals on Absolut, Jim Beam and Bombay Sapphire, but my gastronomical expectations don’t dare venture beyond machine coffee and a factory muffin.
However, I’ve recently been forced to reconsider my stance; airport dining isn’t just a foreseeable possibility – it’s already here. These five top airport restaurants might make you think twice before settling for pretentious lattes in Starbucks or rubbery ‘burgers’ in McDonalds.
If you have the hunger, browse our tips for top airport restaurants…and if you know anybody who’s passing through these airports, make sure you give them a recommendation – they’ll thank you for it later!
Euro 2012 is almost upon us! Poland and Ukraine will host one of the most exciting sports events this year between 8th June and 1st July. Major cities such as Warsaw and Kiev are popular tourist destinations, but not so many tourists have wandered the streets of cities like Kharkiv and Lviv. Luckily, this summer we can discover (or rediscover) Poland and Ukraine, with the matches spread over the two countries. To make it a bit easier to find accommodation, we’ve made a selection of great hotels to stay in whilst supporting your team!

So far so yeah yeah yeah…but there’s more to be found below the surface. Since the opening of the first tube line in 1863, a number of stories, rumours and incidents have been brewing underneath the streets of London.
As today is the 11th, how fitting that we’ve dug up 11 fascinating facts about one of the world’s most famous transport systems. Let’s dive right in:
Most tourists coming to Netherlands have Amsterdam at the top of their list. Many have Amsterdam as the only thing on their list. True, there’s loads to see in Amsterdam, but there’s also plenty of attractions just outside the city. These hidden gems are often no more than an hour away and can easily be seen and enjoyed in a day.
April marks the beginning of Disneyland Paris’ 20th anniversary celebrations. The park opened its doors twenty years ago on 12th April, then still called Euro Disneyland.
