Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Bitola, Macedonia
Ah Bitola... as the rest of Macedonia, it's full of surprises. A small archaeological ruin at the edge of town, I never would have expected such a find in the middle of nowhere, Macedonia. Heraclea was the name of a major region of Roman Macedonia in the 4th century B.C.E. It was founded by Philip of Macedon named after the Greek hero Hercules. I was the only person there at the time, other …

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Yorktown, Virginia, USA
Yorktown, Virginia has a nice waterfront area called Riverwalk Landing, which I have reviewed here on TravBuddy and give the link to that review at the end here. This is an area where many tourists and locals come to enjoy the beach, restaurants, shops and nearby historic sights. The hotel affords some pleasant views of the river and beach with balconies facing that direction. There is also a rest…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Vienna, Austria
There are three Meininger Hotels in Vienna, two of them are close to each other in the second district: Franz and Sissi. I chose a room with a private bathroom for two nights in the Meininger Hotel Wien Downtown Franz. It is located in the Rembrandts Street close to the Rossauer Bridge. Going by the Danube Canal you'll get to the Schweden Square and from there to the Stefans Square and Graben, a…

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Budapest, Hungary
Zoo Cafe is not just an ordinary cafe. It was established in 2014 in the heart of beautiful Budapest and as the name can suggest it has many hand raised animals with whom people can interact. As a child I had few animals, usually against my mum’s will, but now in my rushing life I don’t have the possibility to keep my own animal at home. I’m not sure if I would even want to. As I’m older…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Brugge, Belgium
I recently made a short trip to Bruges as part of a large group to celebrate my friend's pending marriage. We took the ferry there and back overnight from the UK, but spent one night in the centre of Bruges. My friend's sister organised accommodation at Martin's Brugge for 19 of us (nine rooms, mostly doubles). We were allowed to drop our bags off in the morning before returning to check-in at…

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Eureka, California, USA
I typed in on my cell phone for restaurants we could have dinner in the town of Eureka, and Samoa Cookhouse was the first to appear on my search. We thought it was a restaurant for Samoan cuisine. As we are always open to trying different cuisines, we all agreed to go to Samoan Cookhouse. The van's GPS helped us get there correctly. The restaurant is in the middle of Woodley Island off the co…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Chenonceaux, France
A popular trip from Paris is to the Loire valley region, famous for being littered with Chateaus. One is actually spoiled for choice when deciding to visit this region on a time crunch. We only had a day to spare, and I thought we could squeeze in at least three Chateaus if we got there nice and early. I was wrong. But I made a great decision in going to this Chateau first. The town of Chenon…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
Located near the Arthur's Seat, this place has a beautiful view (depending where your room faces). I believe it's more of a student accommodation than a B&B. The bedroom was spacious and brightly lit (big windows with good views). In rooms with no bathroom attached, there's a sink and a mirror so it is quite convenient if you just need to wash your hands/face. Bed was however, very squeeky. They'd…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Planet Tours and Safaris is a tour operating company located in Dubai. For the cost of $45, I was able to enjoy a very stimulating desert dune ride in a Toyota 4 X 4 followed by a relaxing dinner and hangout the camp that was available with some Middle Eastern dance festivities. The desert dune ride is probably not for the motion sick but I really enjoyed it. I was in a tour group consisting o…

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Jamestown, Virginia, USA
The Jamestown Settlement is a recreation of the 1607 James Fort erected as England’s second foray in colonizing North America, following the failed Roanoke colony of twenty years earlier. The recreated fort does not sit on the original site, which is maintained nearby by the National Park Service as Historic Jamestowne, a separate entity with separate admission. This didn’t seem to bother mo…
