Dubai

Once a small fishing village, Dubai has today flourished to become the pearl of the Middle East. It offers the unimaginable sight of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa and the miraculous 8th Wonder of the World – Palm Jumeirah. Lounging on sandy beaches, visiting exclusive nightclubs, and skiing inside the magnificent indoor ski slope are a few of the many amazing activities that Dubai has to offer. Dubai is where historic Arabic culture, modern skyscrapers, exotic markets and beautiful beaches form the crossroads for an unbeatable holiday.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Carcassonne

Located in South of France, Carcassonne is situated at the crossing of two major routes: from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast and from the heart of France to Spain, both used since antiquity. It is a beautiful and diversified region but the city itself has enough to fulfil your curiosity. The medieval fortified Cité is a UNESCO world heritage site. No wonder that Carcassone is home to a unique historical and cultural past. If you add the local traditional dishes, the hospitality of its inhabitants and some of the best vineyards in the south of France, your stay will be a most memorable one!

Seattle, Washington

Progressive and yet laid back, Seattle offers a wide range of entertainment, live music and family fun for all to enjoy. Called The Emerald City, Seattle is the largest city in the Northwest United States and is home to the iconic Space Needle, the famous Pike Place Market and the new Chihuly Garden and Glass. Noted as the birthplace of grunge music and serious coffee shops (Starbucks and Tully’s), Seattle is far sunnier than its reputation as a rainy city. In fact, Seattle receives less rain than many major U.S. cities including New York and Miami. Seattle is a green city with an abundance of evergreen trees and spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Olympic Mountains to the west.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: St. Andrew's

St. Andrew's was once known as ‘the Parish of Hardship’, but those days are long since passed. The Fashion Museum is the public face of the neighbourhood, and in the Nationalestraat and Kammenstraat area vintage clothing and haute couture go hand in hand. There’s always something going on in this district. And don’t miss Kloosterstraat, with its shops full of antique treasures and bric-a-brac.

Leavenworth, Washington

You would never expect to step into Bavaria while visiting Washington, but upon entering Leavenworth, you will certainly feel as though you have been transported to Germany. Nearly 25% of the town's residents can trace their ancestry back to Germany, and they have brought that European feel with them. Though the town is small, what it lacks in size it makes up for in personality. Enjoy great food, fantastic people, beautiful land, and a bevy of activities for every season. If you're visiting in the winter, make sure to go skiing or sleigh riding; in the summer, take part in wine tastings, river rafting, and spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains. October may be the best time to visit as Leavenworth is a fantastic place for Oktoberfest, which is celebrated throughout the month. Don't worry, though; if you can't be there for October, with all the delicious German foods, beers, cafés, Bavarian architecture, and beautiful views, anytime is a great time to visit Leavenworth.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Historic centre

The old city centre is steeped in history. You will find it in ancient building-fronts on narrow streets or in the imposing Grand-Place. The Plantin-Moretus Museum is the only museum in the world to be classified as a Unesco World Heritage site. In the shadow of the Cathedral of Our Lady, the city teems with life in intimate pubs and restaurants. The banks of the Scheldt are a great place for a breath of fresh air.

Pinetop - Lakeside, Arizona

Pinetop - Lakeside, Arizona beckons visitors to “come celebrate the season.” This is fitting, for every season seems to smile upon the small town with ample sunshine in the summers and coquettish snow in the winters. People come each year to this veritable Promised Land of natural beauty. Outdoors activities are abound: adventurers are fond of hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, and trailblazing in the warmer months, and skiing and snowboarding in the cooler seasons.

Palm Springs, California

Palm trees provide a periphery of greens and browns as shadows run along the otherwise snow-capped contours of the mountain ranges. It is clear to visitors why Hollywood stars made Palm Springs their instant escape during the 1920s. The resort town has long remained a getaway for the upwardly mobile—garnering the nickname of “Hollywood's Hideaway”—and has since blossomed into an accessible vacation destination for those seeking lavish leisure among a host of natural and man-made attractions.
