5 Things You Need To Do In Brooklyn

Brooklyn is one of my favourite parts of New York City, and it’s a neighbourhood that rivals Manhattan. I love all of Brooklyn’s quirks, with its interesting culture and fascinating corners that often get overlooked in favour of its bigger brother. I want to talk more about five things that you absolutely need to do whilst you are in Brooklyn. This article is the perfect opportunity for me to reflect and for you to learn more. I hope you enjoy it!

4 Things To Do In Lima

4 Things To Do In Lima

temple

If you are heading to Lima for a South America Tour, you are in for a treat, because Lima will most likely become your favourite holiday destination after you visit. It is full of culture and history, that probably cannot be matched by any other South American country. Here are some great things to do in Lima.

Pucllana Temple (Huaca Pucllana)

You really don’t need to go into the jungle or mountains to see historical Peruvian ruins,  you can easily do this in Lima. Most of these ruins  not able to be accessed by the Pucllana Temple  is one of the places that you are actually able to visit. The temple is located in the Miraflores district and it is believed that it was built around 500 AD. There are constant discoveries of artifacts and ancient mummies and this makes it even more interesting, and the site is still being uncovered today. This is a great place at night too, as the temple is lit up at night and gives it an almost surreal look.

A Guide to Dresden, Germany

A Guide to Dresden, Germany

Dresden, the capital city of the German Federal State of Saxony, is situated on both banks of the River Elbe, very close to the Czech border. It is a charming town with a rich history of kings and noblemen. Although WWII bombing destroyed much of the historic city centre, parts of it have been restored to their original state.

Beautiful Buildings
There are many wonderful attractions that you need to see during a stay in Dresden. The beautifully designed buildings lining the Elbe, a vast number of them in stately Baroque style, are lit up at night, creating a stunning spectacle of light and reflection on the surface of the water. The Semperoper (the opera house named after Gottfried Semper), which was completely rebuilt and reopened in 1985, the Frauenkirche and the Zwinger Palace, to name but a few, are a must on your itinerary. There are also several interesting museums and a zoo.

Thinking Outside the Box on Holiday   

Thinking Outside the Box on Holiday  

There’s an increasingly popular philosophy amongst travellers: Wherever you go, the tourist trail can feel much the same. All over the developed world, tourist experiences are repeated again and again and again, and in spite of whichever stark aesthetic and cultural differences may exist between two cities, you’ll usually find that the package holiday itineraries for both are remarkably similar. Some of us find this incredibly uninspiring.

Without further ado, here are a few off-the-beaten-track ideas for holiday activities that skip jauntily off the tourist trail and into the real life of a destination:

The best breakfasts from around the globe

The best breakfasts from around the globe

We have probably all heard the famous saying that teaches us that we should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. In this day and age it can sometimes be a little difficult to follow the above saying, we are all so busy rushing to get to work or maybe to get the kids to school. On my travels I have found that there are many cultures that take time for breakfast and enjoy it. Breakfast should, ideally, be a leisurely affair where you can sit with your family or friends before you go out to work for the day. Here are some of the best breakfasts that I have found around the world, inspired by the ‘Breakfast Club’:

Dalmatia’s Historical Attractions

Dalmatia’s Historical Attractions

Dalmatia, a historic region of Croatia, is today peopled by three distinct groups. The ‘Fetivi’ occupy the urban coastal cities, the old towns and historic attractions clear descendants of a heavy Italian and classical Roman heritage, while the further inland you venture the more you encounter the influence of the Turkish Ottoman Empire and its descendants, the Vlaji. The largest city in Dalmatia, the city of Split, stands testament to the influence of the Roman empire, built as it was around the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian, and historical hubs such as the city of Dubrovnic offer a wealth of cultural intrigue.
