  2. The Oliver - Tupelo Honey Cafe

    A Charmer in the Heart of Knoxville - The Oliver: Knoxville, Tennessee

    $0.00

    Knoxville is a city filled with southern charm, history and hospitality, so staying in a chain hotel would be out of the question. However, there is one boutique hotel in town and it’s a gem. Visit The Oliver, located on Market Square in the heart of downtown. Built in 1876 by German immigrant Peter Kern, it was a bakery and retail outlet of sorts. Peter was a man with a vision, and he is remembered today by the bar located in the hotel. It’s known as the Peter Kern Library Bar. It has a speakeasy vibe that serves up old school cocktails. The drink menus are hidden in old World Book Encyclopedias (Boomers will remember those – I still have mine!) This alone is a reason to stay here.

It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    An Oasis In the Middle of Stockholm: Hotel Skeppsholmen

    $0.00

    One of the great advantages of visiting a European capital is the proximity to the cultural and culinary opportunities that surround you. One of the disadvantages is the noise and the crowds.

  15. Balloons over Bagan

    Balloons over Bagan – Myanmar (Burma)

    $0.00

    There is a well-known saying, “Bagan is (the) spirit of (the) history of Myanmar” and to fully understand the importance and complexity of the Buddhist influence over Myanmar then you really should treat yourself to a hot air balloon flight over the ancient city of Bagan. Although not yet awarded a UNESCIO World Heritage listing, this area is home to the highest density of Buddhist architecture anywhere in the world and stretches across 42 square kilometers of the Irrawaddy plain. I had already spent two leisurely days exploring the area by electric moped, where I  was amazed by the craftsmanship of the builders dating back to the 11th and 13th centuries, however, I needed to experience a “birds eye view,” to really appreciate the historic and cultural wealth of this site.
