Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Vienna, Austria
My visit to the Heiligenkreuz Abbey was in December in a group of tourist on a religious trip. We arrived by bus and from parking in front of the monastery I already took first photos of this fascinating building. Our guide led us to the monastery courtyard where she gave us a detailed explanation about the monastery, all what I found later on google. While she was "holding a lecture", I stayed cl…

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Gdansk, Poland
We found Cukiernia Sowa by accident. We were walking around the Gdansk’s Old Town and came across the Sowa Cafe. As we were already a bit tired of walking and wanted a break we decided to stop right there. The cafe was very busy but we manager to find a free table outside. Cukiernia Sowa is located on a pedestrian-only street. The outside tables give an opportunity to watch how the world go by w…

Average priced "Hostels" in Nuremberg, Germany
I booked six nights in a 4-bed-dorm at Five Reasons Hostel for a winter trip to Nuremberg. It cost me £26/night, which I found to be reasonable for the busy time of year and general cost of Germany. Five Reasons is located within the city walls, a ten-minute walk from the centre square of Nuremberg and ideal for exploring the city. This is particularly convenient in the lead up to Christmas w…

Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Orvelte, Netherlands
After breakfast and coffee, we split up. Some of us wanted to go to the memorial site at Westerbork, while others would wander to the nearby village of Orvelte. I was in the last group, because I do not want to visit a holocaust related site. I have been at Orvelte in the late seventies, and my memory of it had faded. Back in those days it was still a "normal" village, but later it was turned i…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Bolsena, Italy
Bolsena is not a particularly large town located in the northern part of Lazio on the shore of a lake by the same name. A charming and relaxed town, there are a number of resort type hotels near the lake, but in the very center of the town sits the Hotel Nazionale. A friend of mine who has a vacation home in Bolsena booked the hotel for us. He told me that it is the oldest hotel in Bolsena, and wh…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Saint Augustine, Florida, USA
In 1998 I was in Athens, Greece briefly on my way to Paris. Although my visit was rather short I was very impressed with the country and its people. I promised myself that I would return to Greece one day but up to now I haven't made it back yet. So, earlier this month when I heard about this festival I made it a point to go there to experience some Greek culture and traditions. It was he…

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Mount Fuji, Japan
I've always wanted to comment on my ascent to Mt. Fuji for a long time but kept forgetting this honorable mention. This constant landmark offers a challenging upward trek that usually takes between 7 to 9 hours, and I wouldn't rush it if I were the intrepid traveler. There are several different trails that lead to the top given the fact that Mt. Fuji is very massive. First time climbers should …
