    Palm Too: Manhattan, NY

    I lived in Manhattan for quite a few years. One particular restaurant, the Palm Too was always such a lovely dining experience. I would say we would dine here at least once a month. I had also tried other locations, Atlanta, Boston, Washington D. C and the Hamptons. I always loved coming back to this particular one, it is the place to go.

    “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing”. This is the mantra of LEGO.  Yes, those famous LEGOs!  You probably played with them when you were a kid; then your kids played with them, and now, if you have grandchildren, they are playing with LEGOs too.  I love LEGOs. There is something so creative and personal about them. As Jorgen Vig Knundstop, Head of LEGO’s Corporate Management explained on YouTube: “There are many solutions to the same problem, and you have to imagine your own solution.”

    London’s Food, Glorious Food

    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

    The Queen Mary 2 Journey - Luxury Personified: Part One

    $0.00

    REMEMBER WHEN?   LUXURY WAS A GIVEN, AND THE CUNARD SLOGAN WAS “GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN”? That was in the Golden Age of transatlantic crossings. When people really going to or from someplace had to resort to sea travel to go long distances.  With the advent of jet planes, carrying more passengers at greater speeds, ocean travel has become almost extinct. But, the QUEEN MARY 2 keeps it alive in all its luxury and splendor on its run from New York (“Brooklyn!”) to Southampton (and some other European destinations).  And I’m telling you, if you have the time, and the money, then treat yourselves to 7 days of luxury, elegance, grand living, and of being suspended in time and place. Getting there really was more than half the fun!!!

  18. 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.

    WHITSTABLE - England

    $0.00

    When you live in a seaside holiday location it’s all too easy to take the views, facilities and ambiance of your own town for granted. I guess it's a minor case of familiarity breeding contempt.

    Take my home town of Whitstable for instance; it’s a small, pretty seaside town with a working fishing harbour and a population of 30,000 that nestles into a small, pebbly cove on the Northeast coast of Kent.

    Barely five miles north of the historic cathedral city of Canterbury, 20-odd miles from the ports of Dover and Folkestone and a 60-mile commute to London, it is the place I call home.

    Our compact former railway workers’ cottage lies just 300 yards from the beach, yet I’ll admit, I’d become a little blasé about the place until a recent readers’ poll in The Times newspaper voted our little town into the top 20 places to live in the United Kingdom.

    It stunned me that people all over Britain aspired to live here! So why is it that Londoners buy weekender homes here and holidaymakers flock here, snubbing seemingly more exotic destinations all over the world, to take in the sights of Whitstable?

    Allow me, a relative newcomer to the town, to tell you.

    Slovenia – Europe’s diamond in the rough

    $0.00

    Okay, I don’t mind admitting that, before visiting the place, the only thing I knew about Slovenia was that it once formed part of the former communist block of Yugoslavia. Not a very positive note to start a visitor review maybe, but do your research and delve deeper into the history of the region and you will be pleasantly surprised by all that a country measuring up at only half the size of neighbouring Switzerland, has to offer.

Because the entire island is only 21 square miles, you are never really far from anything.
