New York is probably the most photogenic city when it comes to set locations for movies and TV series. There is something about this city which is so sexy, mysterious, interesting and intriguing, that any script writer or movie director simply cannot resist.
Cult series such as “Sex and the City” and “Gossip Girl” became a huge success thanks to vibrant set locations and memorable background views. Legendary movies such “Vanilla Sky” and “Kramer vs. Kramer” made us all fall in love with New York over and over again.
We decided to dedicate this post to this amazing city for giving us some of the greatest TV shows and movies ever made. I present you here my favorite New York set locations of all times:
This time on our City A-Z list we have the beautiful and scintillating Italian capital of Rome. There is so much to write about Rome that we found ourselves struggling to decide what to include; each letter on this list represents just a small factor of what Rome is all about. If not the most, this amazing city is certainly one of the most popular destinations in Europe; trust us when we say that it’s not all thanks to the beautiful Italian women and the delicious food. Rome has a certain atmosphere that is simply supreme and that’s what makes it so unique. Read our A-Z list and start getting to know Rome from the inside out.
When you travel around the world, sooner or later you will come across some old and impressive castle. A castle is something that we directly connect to historical events, romance and old and remarkable stories. When I see a castle I always start wondering how it would feel to actually live there; this huge structure, many times surrounded by beautiful gardens and high fences, makes me somehow feel as if great things happened there in the past. These days many castles around Europe allow us to feel like a king or a queen for a day, or even more: many castles have been renovated and rearranged, transforming it to a beautiful hotel. The reason it is so special to stay in a castle instead of in regular lodging is because many things in the castle are kept in the old style. This enables us to see what it was like to live in a huge castle, almost like in the old days.
Take a look at the castles below and you might get inspired when picking your hotel for your next holiday:
A few weeks ago we asked you on our Facebook page “What is your favorite movie set location?” We were amazed by the amount of responses we got. “Vicky Christina Barcelona”, “Eat, Pray, Love” in Italy and Indonesia, “Harry Potter” in London and many more cool locations, were all mentioned by you and made us all remember why we loved a certain film.
Once the Facebook discussion was over we were still enthusiastic about it and decided to elaborate on the subject a little more. Take a look at what we at EasyToBook.com consider to be the best movie set locations:
Spain is one of my favorite countries in Europe. The weather is warm most of the time, the food is excellent, ZARA is much cheaper there than the ones in the rest of Europe, (sorry guys, just had to mention it ) and Spanish people definitely know how to enjoy life.
Many cultural things we all know and love come from the Spanish culture: inspiring football, tapas restaurants, Ibiza style parties and of course the beautiful actress Penelope Cruz. If you plan a trip to Spain anytime soon, do some research in advance about Spanish culture. It won’t harm you; it will actually give you the chance to get closer to the local people, a guarantee for a fun experience!
This time on our interview specials I am happy to introduce to you not only a colleague of mine at easytobook.com, but also a good friend! Luigi, or Gigi as we all call him here, is one of the nicest and most easygoing persons I ever met. Witnessing Gigi get stressed or upset about something is almost impossible as he always manages to keep his calm (it is almost hard to believe that he is Italian!). No matter what time it is, (even if it’s minutes before going home) Gigi will always be willing to help out with a problem, listen to long, unimportant stories, (mostly told by me) and to keep a smile on his face while doing it. I asked him a few questions so you will have the chance to get to know him a little as well
Name: Luigi Picazio (Gigi for all my friends)
Position: Marketing Executive (SEO and Social Media)
Moved to the Netherlands: almost 3 years ago
If you are planning a trip to Bangkok any time soon, make sure to leave at least half of your suitcase empty as you are going to buy a lot of stuff. Bangkok is heaven for people who love shopping and good deals; basically it is heaven for all of us. The city is packed with huge shopping malls, plenty of different markets and endless shops. The best thing about shopping in Thailand is the fact that almost everything is cheap compared to other destinations. Even though you will be able to find luxury malls in the city as well, most of the items in Bangkok are so cheap, you simply cannot stop buying.
If you don’t want to get lost in this whole shopping craze, check out our Bangkok ultimate shopping guide and don’t forget to take notes!
Waiting for a flight in the airport is probably one of the most annoying things out there. Airports are not the most exciting places and even though they offer different facilities and shops, after you strolled through all the stores there, (usually there are not so many of them) you will find yourself looking at your watch and praying for the time to move faster. As an expat living in Amsterdam I know the feeling of going crazy while waiting for a flight. That is why I decided to write this”10 things to do in Schiphol airport while waiting for a flight” article. For those of you who take their flight from other airports and want advice as well, no worries, my tips are probably valid for any airport out there!
A: Alexanderplatz - This is one of the biggest squares in the city and a major transport hub. Aside from important historic buildings, it’s a good place to visit and eat fast food after a long night of dancing – everything here stays open all night.
B: Bus 100 - If you want to see the entire city without spending a lot of money, it will not get any better than this! This public bus will take you to all the major city’s landmarks and all for a symbolic price! Forget the same-old tourist busses; this is cheaper and even less busy!
C: Checkpoint Charlie - One of the most important places to see when visiting Berlin. This was the crossing point between the East and West sides of the city during the war. This checkpoint was the gate to freedom for the people who lived on the East part.
Wintertime can represent a depressive and grey period for some people (like me ). For others, it’s the time to go on a winter sport holiday which means a lot of skiing, drinking and partying. France has always been the number one destination to go on winter sport. The beautiful mountains, white surrounding, endless ski resorts selection and the delicious French cuisine, all labeled it year after year as the one of the best places to go ski.There are so many places you can be accommodated in when going on winter sport; if it’s your first time skiing in France, how will you know where to go? That is why we decided to make life easier for you and help you narrow down your choices:
