North Atlantic coast with a spice of Canada

Let me start by saying “Kids, don’t try this at home”. Do your homework. Plan. Calculate. Re-calculate. And plan again. Because we didn’t. All we knew was that I wanted Boston, Vermont, Maine, Nova Scotia and shopping. And that he wanted Ottawa, Quebec and some peace on Earth. I would do the planning and he would be the driver. Sitting on the couch and looking at Google maps, the plan seemed doable but on a very tight schedule. So finally we agreed to skip Nova Scotia, add Cape Cod and to improvise in between.

Las Vegas – the Sin City, Nevada (USA)

If Paris is the city of lights, New York the Big Apple and Dubai the city of gold – Las Vegas is all in one. From Ancient Rome and Egypt Pyramids, through the magic of fairytales and science fiction, all the way to Eiffel tower, Brooklyn Bridge and London Eye: Vegas has it all. And honestly, they are doing a pretty good job out there in the middle of the desert. I have visited Las Vegas 5 times, mostly for work, and each time I try to experience something new – different hotels and restaurants, things to do in the Strip and around the town. In this post you will find about where to stay in Las Vegas, how to […]
