Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
The Philadelphia City Hall is colossal in more ways than one. With its looming clock tower topped by a 27 ton statue of William Penn, you are almost guaranteed to glimpse the founder of the City of Brotherly Love during a tour of downtown Philadelphia, and since it is so easy to find, why not go there? This massive structure occupying a full city block took thirty years to complete and even thou…

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Litomerice, Czech Republic
The leading hotel in Litoměřice occupies one of the landmark townhouses, a building from the late Gothic era, redesigned in Renaissance style in the 16th century, facades decorated with sgraffiti - so it is not to miss. They also have a restaurant and so I had lunch there. It was cold and rainy, so I took a seat in the vaulted dining room inside, not under the arcades outside. The service was…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Manama, Bahrain
During my port visit to Manama, we visited the Manama Souq, or commonly known as "THE Souk". It's one of the major landmarks in the tiny island of Bahrain. The business district the Souq was located is easy to drive to. It's a bazaar where you can haggle with the merchants. A whole bunch of Middle Eastern mom-and-pop shops are located in the Souq The diverse assortment of goods are available s…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Poltava, Ukraine
If you can allow a day trip, visit the town of Dykan'ka (“Dikanka” in Russian) located to the north of Poltava (half an hour ride by bus). Nikolay Gogol described the peasants’ life here in his famous book "Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka". Here is a link to the good old Soviet movie after Gogol’s book with English subtitles that I would recommend seeing (one part after another): https:/…

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Lolita, Texas, USA
From La Ward, I turned east on Farm to Market Road 616 for the short drive to Lolita. With a name like that I had to check it out. Lolita is a small town of about 555 (up a scant 1% since 2000) located at the eastern terminus of Farm to Market Road 616 by the Lavaca River in Jackson County in Southeast Texas. The number of men in town is higher than the number of women, perhaps they are looking…

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Charleville-Mezieres, France
I knew it when booking the hotel that Buffalo Grill restaurant is right next door. Is a French chain restaurant you'll find them in other cities. When I read the reviews about this restaurant isn't really good, a lot of negative comments, but we didn't mind and go for it. With our experience on this place for the first time I can't see any negatives, the service is good and fast. Inside th…

The monument was erected in memory of the victims of the Doboj camp in the period 1915-17. At high mound is the monument that can be reached by maintained trails.

Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Tarrafal, Cape Verde
This former concentration camp in Chão Bom, on the outskirts of Tarrafal, made a real contrast to the rest of our day out. Now a museum, it commemorates a darker time for the islands, under Portuguese rule. Also known as Campo da Morte Lenta (‘Camp of the Slow Death’) it was established in 1936 as an overseas penal colony, by the Portuguese dictator António de Oliveira Salazar, to house …

Very cheap "Hostels" in Kampala, Uganda
Backpackers is a hostel inside Kampala, and I can not say it is situated in the center, because there is a big center of Kampala. But the location is very good and safe according to me, and you have many different things around you like police station, night club, bars, amrket and local places to eat. Many boda boda pass through here and and also taxis which goes to the city. So, it is easy to fin…
