  1. Swope Car Museum (Photo by Mike Miller)

    On Patrol on 31-W from Michigan to Alabama: Swope Car Museum

    $0.00

    Let’s get off the interstate and “Go on Patrol!!” Today we are traveling on 31W, one of the original north south routes that run parallel to I-65 from Michigan to Alabama. On a car lot in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, we found Swope’s Cars of Yesteryear Museum. It is without a doubt the best free Car Museum in the U.S. Owner, Bill Swope, has collected and put on display 60 cars built between 1900 and 1970. They have been lovingly restored in every detail. I am a collector (not of cars) so I’m in total awe at what Mr. Swope has accomplished. He has found many totally original cars that are in “like new” condition.

But we found a few ways to avoid the crowds, and their spending, while still experiencing this beautiful, delicious, and intoxicating region to its fullest.

    Munich – City of Lifestyle

    $0.00

    Munich is the largest city in the Bavarian state of Germany.  It ranks as the third largest city followed by Berlin and Hamburg.    Of all the cities in Germany, I find Munich to be the most “tour-friendly” since I can just walk or bicycle myself around town.  Street maps are an easy read though always on a first visit to any international destination, I enjoy taking the “hop on hop off” bus tour to get a true overview of the city and mark those destinations that I wish to return to explore further.

    Bavarian Inn: Frankenmuth, Michigan

    $0.00

    Baby its cold outside – what a perfect time to pack up the grand kids or just yourself and head to Michigan and the Bavarian Inn. If traveling to Germany with the family is not an option this year, then have no fear, this will satisfy the thirst until then. The Inn is a family run business from the ground up, so great care is taken to make you feel welcome, comfortable and well fed. Here's what the President, Judy Zehnder Keller had to say, “Family is everything to us. My mother Dorothy, at nearly age 91, is still very active in the kitchen, my brother Bill and I along with our spouses oversee the restaurant and lodge. We both have two of our children in the business, nearly nine family members in senior management at this time. There are four in the fourth generation, four in the third generation and one in the second generation. It is a blessing and an honor to work with family.” I don't know about you, but this is the kind of place that I want to visit.

    Georgia Choir Represents US at Cornish International Festival

    $0.00

    No one has ever explained to me why the hairs at the back of my neck stand on end when I listen to a choir in full voice, but, what I do know is that it’s a ‘good to be alive’ feeling all the same.

     

    So, imagine combining the resounding sounds of 70 choirs of all ages and many nationalities with the magisterial natural beauty of Cornwall, the UK’s westernmost county. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? 

     

    So best book your flights and tickets and head for the 2015 Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival.

    London’s Food, Glorious Food

    $0.00

    Remember when… English food was considered abominable? Except for we English who loved it, didn’t know better, and it wasn’t until the advent of the early Chinese and Indian cafes that we knew any other cuisine or cooking.  But over the years, especially with the EU making crossing borders easy, the wonderful influx of young chefs from France, Italy, Spain, Germany, etc., has brought fine dining to an Art form in London and beyond.  Let’s take a look at some of the venerable restaurants in London, and it’s all about adapting tried and true establishments adapting to the “latest” trends

  20. The Value of Using Tourism Cards in Europe

    The Value of Using Tourism Cards in Europe

    $0.00

    Berlin, Germany, 02/21/2017 - Online moving platform Movinga.com have produced a study, in cooperation with package holiday specialists TravelBird.nl , presenting the savings associated with tourist travel tickets within cities as opposed to purchasing tickets individually. Movinga carried out the research after releasing their 2017 Relocation Price Index which detailed, in part, local costs of public transportation. They then teamed up with TravelBird to expand on this study. Since most tourist passes contain all-inclusive public transport cards as well as discounts on museums and activities, the companies wanted to investigate the value of these convenience deals. TravelBird and Movinga hope the study will empower tourists to think critically about ticket options and will offer a method of calculating potential savings for popular vacation destinations.
