How many times have we told ourselves we need a trip? Either being for the purpose of unwinding, or just to take advantage of those extra vacation days we refuse to waste at home. We share the idea with our friends and/or spouse, but it seems everybody is too busy, consequently impeding your desired jaunt. Even worse, urging you to put your plans on hold until they are possibly… maybe on board.
It is almost impossible to sync our plans to other people’s priorities, and sometimes even when you find yourself a travel buddy, is it really worth it? The trip read more
Don’t even think about leaving your kids at home when you visit Europe this season. While Paris may seem like an adult-oriented city at first glance, the “City of Lights” offers a plethora of activities for children of all ages. Take in one or more of the top kids attractions in the city or sign up for one of the organized children’s program that proliferate in Paris and let him explore on his own.
One of our primary motivations to travel is the chance to witness different cultures. If you’re more of a thrifty kind of traveler, you may delight in the chance to kill two birds with one stone. You don’t have to go to China to experience Chinese culture. Just follow our guide to the best Chinatowns around the world.
The city of light and love has so much to offer, it boggles the mind. Proposing at the Eiffel Tower, shopping on the Champs-Elysées, or enjoying some Haute Cuisine in a Seineside restaurant; Paris will keep you occupied for several lifetimes.
This alphabetical introduction, courtesy of Eva, is not enough to cover all of Paris’ beauty, but it will give you some insight and ideas for your next trip to France.
Arc de Triomphe
At the western end of the renowned Champs Elysées you’ll find one of Paris’ most famous monuments, the Arc de Triomphe. With its impressive 50m height, this arch is one of the largest in the world. Don’t risk your life crossing the Place Charles de Gaulle (one of the busiest roundabouts in Paris), but instead take the ‘passerelle’ tunnel to have a closer look at the inscriptions on the arch and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, or to admire the stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and Grande Arche.
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.
The French are proud of their cultural heritage – and they have something of a right to be. Paris is the second city in the world in numbers of museums and the range is wide; from art to literature, from science to history…even a hunting museum: nothing is too unusual for Parisians. Join us on a guided tour through a selection of Paris’ finest museums.
A vacation should be an experience that, from start to finish, is fun, exciting and special. Minibars and flat screen TVs just don’t turn me on anymore. I want to be wowed.
Luckily, I’m not alone. A number of hotels now offer a choice of unique designs and decor, ranging from romantically themed rooms to upside-down mirror suites. Some of these just have to be seen to be believed.
Come with us on a tour of ten of the top theme hotels around the globe.

You might have scrimped together enough centimes to take yourself off to Paris, which is an impressive enough feat in itself. However, unless you’re Marty McFly or some other time-travelling wise guy, you’ve probably only seen the city in its present state. Not many of us can say we’ve played witness to the City of Light during the Dark Ages (see what I did there) or the Roman occupation, or through the French Revolution.
Here’s a chance to compare some of your favourite attractions as they look today alongside how they looked roughly one hundred years ago. Sometimes the changes over the past century are only slight; sometimes they are monumental. Our tireless investigator Sandrine has done her best to find perspectives that match as closely as possible in order to provide the best comparison. Hold on to your corset as you step back into the past with us.
Europe might be full of foreigners, small hotel rooms and questionable border security, but one thing it really does have going for it is the depth and breadth of history throughout the continent. Like tropical rainforest is for plant and animal species, Europe is an area of immense cultural richness.
What follows is an introduction to UNESCO-listed attractions in Europe. In this post I’ll concentrate on the most famous ones. However, it’s definitely worth looking beyond the obvious to uncover less well-known destinations.
Let’s move from west to east, so it will feel a bit like we’re travelling forward in time.
Some people like to patronise chain hotels because they offer a standard level of accommodation. It can be reassuring to know what level of service and facilities to expect when you stay in a Hilton or a Holiday Inn. Conversely, if you stray off the beaten path you’re forfeiting the kind of reassurance that comes with brand standards.
However, sometimes taking a risk can pay dividends. Take the following hotels, for example; if names are anything to go by, what kind of fun extras might they offer?
