Can’t wait for Santa to drop down your chimney? Then join him on the piste! This is a wicked excuse to bask in the beautiful scenery of the Swiss Alps, feel the thrill of Alpine skiing, and rub shoulders with one of the world’s largest collections of Santa Clauses. Leave your reindeer by the fireplace and start waxing up your skis: Santa is taking the piste.
If you’re looking for something to warm your cockles on cold November nights you could do much worse than head over to King’s Landing….uh….you know what I mean.
If you suffer of Samhainophobia, you might want to stop reading right now because this is all about pumpkins, Jack-O’-Lanterns and Trick-or-treats. Halloween is creeping up quickly, and it’s time to discover all the ins and outs of what might be one of the world’s scariest holidays.
This is going to be tricky and controversial, but let’s face the truth: 23% of the 8 million tourists that visit Amsterdam every year go to a Coffee Shop during their stay.
For those of you that don’t know what a Coffee Shop is, here’s the Wikipedia definition: “Coffeeshops (or cannabis coffee shop) are establishments in the Netherlands where the sale of cannabis for personal consumption by the public is tolerated by the local authorities”
To celebrate this libertine attitude against soft drugs, each year the New York based magazine “High Times” organizes the “High Times Cannabis Cup” – also known as the “Cannabis Cup” – which is held in November in Amsterdam.
If you’re heading to New York and don’t fancy shelling out for an open-top tour bus, you could consider running around the city instead.
Not convinced? Check out this route:
New York Marathon kicks off from Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island before crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Brooklyn. It then travels up to Queens and turns left to cross the East River on Queensboro Bridge. Upon reaching Manhattan the route goes through the Upper East Side to the Bronx, then down again through Central Park to finish near Central Park Lake.
Following this circuit, you pass through 4 of the 5 boroughs and also touch on Harlem as you pass down 5th Avenue. That’s some serious ground you’re covering. The length of this route, though; it’s massive…it must be at least 26 miles.
Welcome to our Ultimate guide to New York City Marathon.
Vibrant; vivacious; venereal – London’s reputation spreads far and wide. The streets are paved with gold, the black cabs run on digestive biscuits, and everybody wears a bowler hat.
There’s always a lot going here because, whatever the weather, London loves to party. One of the best examples of this is the world famous Notting Hill Carnival. Known for its attractive Georgian townhouses and dreary rom-coms, once a year the usually placid district of Notting Hill comes alive in an explosion of colour and music. Strip off your clothes and strap on your dancing shoes for Europe’s largest free carnival.
With the Olympics approaching faster than Usain Bolt, the world is getting ready for one of the biggest sporting events of the year. Two weeks of athletics, cycling, swimming, wrestling and whatnot.
Way back when, things were a touch different. Who needs hockey when you have underwater planking? The 100m running deer sounds like a barrel of laughs…or how about some Indian Club Swinging? Oh, the good old days…
Sit back and relax while you enjoy this infographic about 50 Olympic events you won’t see in 2012.
Imagine: You’re standing in the middle of a human sea. Thousands of bodies jubilantly chatting, swaying, toasting and swigging away out of immense beer krugs. Women in elegant Dirndl-dresses mix with men in leather pants, called Lederhosen. You order another beer from a stout-looking waitress and stand up on a bench in the immense wooden hall. An oompah band lurches into another drinking ditty and the crowds go wild.
You’re at the Munich Oktoberfest and the atmosphere is electric.
