Home to the world’s most expensive clothes rack, Paris is a city with many frivolous associations.
City of fashion, city of romance, city of light; city of baguettes. Hunchbacks, guillotines, absinthe fairies and dead rock stars all play a part in Paris’ tumultuous history.
Did you know that the French have sex more often in a year than any other culture? It’s official.
Bearing this in mind, how much do you actually know about Paris? Think you’re something of a Francophile? How about proving it by taking our Diabolically Difficult French Capital Quiz?
Here are 25 twists and turns to keep you guessing and gurning right up to the end. If you do well, give yourself a pat on the back and order a crêpe; if you don’t, buy a Citroёn 2CV and spend a fortnight on the Boulevard Périphérique.
Either way, we hope you thoroughly enjoy yourselves…now let’s French it up a bit.
There’s nothing that says ‘I love and respect the wonder of all god’s creations’ like raising a stupendous, imposing structure.
Chitchen Itza, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Hagia Sophia and Angkor Wat are all world-famous attractions that were built for spiritual purposes. Their spectacle draws us like pilgrims to the face of the Madonna in a piece of toast.
There’s endless information about these fantastically popular erections, and we’re all familiar with their proportions. However, sometimes religious devotion spawns some rather more intriguing products.
Let’s take a look at some of the world’s more curious religious structures – the weird, the wacky and the wonderful. Have you snapped any of these constructions on your travels?
Spain’s capital is naturally one of the country’s most expensive cities. It doesn’t take a great deal of imagination to expect that you can easily spend a fortune here if you’re not careful. That said, the best things in life are still free, right?
While it’s true that Madrid can’t offer as many free museums as London can, there are still plenty of tasty attractions that can help to spare your pockets….if you know where to look for them.
Having covered Paris, Rome and Amsterdam in our ‘top blogs’ series, we’ve decided to keep up the momentum with one of Europe’s most fabulous cities: Berlin.
Berlin has so much to offer and teach; culturally and historically it’s one of our richest cities.
Around 80% of Berlin was destroyed during the Second World War. The separation of East and West didn’t do much to help reparation of the city, but more recently great buildings such as those on Museumsinsel have been restored to their former grandeur. That said, even two decades following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the dichotomy of the city is still apparent. Berlin has become a city full of secrets that draws tourists from over the world.
We previously gave you tips from our Berlin local, Lisa, as well as an alphabetical rundown in our Berlin A-Z. It’s now time to look beyond our knowledge and identify some expert Berlin bloggers. Besides English, we’ve also included German, Spanish, French, Dutch and Italian blogs, for a greater degree of variety.
So, without further ado, here’s our list of Top Berlin blogs:
The Big Apple is a massive city with a population of over 8 million people. It’s not too hard to get lost out here.
You might be something of an agoraphobic, or maybe you’re sick of hot dogs, or perhaps you’ve made one of those South-East Asian arrangements where you eat at the same place you sleep. Whatever your motivation, you want to discover some of New York’s recommended hotel restaurants. Fear not – that’s exactly what we’ve been thinking about. As the Roman saying goes, “ciao down.”
Remember that post about the World’s Best Rollercoasters? It kind of sparked our interest about the more adventurous and extreme side of tourism. For those thrill seekers out there, here’s a dozen ‘extreme’ tourist attractions that may well give you some inspiration for your next adventure.
Would you like to become a packing pro? Can’t take all your clothes with you on holiday? Need to know how to arrange your stuff so that everything fits into your suitcase? No worries; Easytobook.com comes to the rescue and reveals all the secrets of the perfect suitcase!
First of all, you have to ask yourself the right questions: Where am I going? For how long? What will the weather be like? Which suitcases do I have to choose? etc…
We advise you to start preparing your suitcase a few days before your departure. Don’t leave it until the last minute, for the simple reason that there is every chance you’ll forget something or you’ll want the only pair of jeans that is still in the dirty washing basket.
Here are some tips that we might not initially consider, but can be very helpful when packing.
