Eating Prague Food Tour Review

A Czech Wine Tasting in Prague as part of our Eating Prague Food Tour

Food, glorious food.  That is what I base most of my travel activities on, I admit.  From a cooking class in Mexico City to a food tour in Berlin and Kriol cooking in Belize I love to try local food.  I didn’t really know what to expect from Czech cuisine, but when I was planning […]

The Berlin TV Tower

I’d already been to Berlin a couple of months before, but I came back to the city for the travel exhibition ITB Berlin in March.  The last time I had just snapped a couple of photos of the tallest building in Berlin, the Berlin TV Tower or “Fernsehturm”, but this time I was going to […]
