While searching for hotels in Anaheim, I was surprised that the prices were quite steep, but I figured that was for the exhibition which is the largest in the world in the segment of healthy foods and supplements. However, if you are ready for a compromise (which means that your hotel won’t be in the walking distance of Convention Center or Disneyland) you can find some pretty good deals just a few miles away.

There are some bars and restaurants where the stars usually hang out, but those places are not cheap and you need reservations to get there. The easiest option to get […]

5 days in New York – Things to see in Manhattan

Before you start planning your trip to New York you need to know how many days you can afford, what are your sightseeing priorities and how much money you are willing to spend. For most of people 5 days in New York are just about enough to feel the city – after that you either become a New York addict like me and want to return as soon as possible, or you check it from your bucket list and move on. Also, if you only have a weekend or 3 days to spend – New York is ALWAYS a good idea. Skip a thing or two from my suggested itinerary, spend a few hours less in Macy’s and you will […]
