Christmas markets have a long tradition in several Northern European countries. Most popular are those in Germany. Year after year plenty of visitors flog to the more famous ones in Munich or Nürnberg. But I had a very special day in a tiny rural town in Bavaria/Germany.
If I spent a week or even a month in London, I am sure I would barely touch upon the many sights found throughout the city. Public gardens, art museums, historic buildings and galleries; these numerous attractions are worth spending at least an hour or two, or maybe even the...
Back in the sixties, when hippies were fashionable and love was free, hitchhiking was a common form of transport. Nowadays, we're led to believe that hitchhikers will end up disappearing off the the face of the Earth in a dark and terrifying demise.
Vienna is the historical capital of Austria and often gets referred to as the City of Music which is attributable to its leading role in the European music centre, from the great age of Viennese classicism through to the early part of the 20th century.

We set out to see Ireland differently. Rather than flying in and out of Dublin and only getting to know the touristy part of the country, we decided to take a ride around the island. And such an experience stimulated our minds through to our bodies as we embarked on...
Architecture makes some of the most beautiful man made concepts visible to the eye. Large bridges that span over the deep blue sea or tall buildings that almost reach the clouds are just a few designs that come to mind.
Europe is the smallest continent, but it's dense with culture. An hour's travel from almost anywhere could see you in a new country, complete with a different language, different customs, and (best of all) different food. It seems a pity to fly over all this, hopping from one destination to another.
