How to Eat Your Way Around Switzerland Without Blowing your Budget

Switzerland is quite famous for its food; the Swiss cheese, chocolate, and even the wine. But the problem is that it is also notoriously famous for being expensive.

So, how do you get all that Swiss…

Eating Prague Food Tour Review

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 a visit to Prague in the Czech Republic I wanted to learn more about Czech food and drink so looked up food tours in Prague. …

A VIP Dinner in the Berlin TV Tower Restaurant

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 go up to the top and have dinner in their revolving restaurant!  I was invited to experience the VIP dinner with Musement, and really enjoyed…
