Average priced "Nightlife & Entertainment" in Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Like so many among us, my soul dies just a bit every time I spend an evening in a generic and uninteresting bar. You begin to feel an urge to don a cape and become the "Cool bar superhero" that could secretly fly through the city and actually FIND these illusive, fabled places that are supposed to exist out there but are so hard to find... And then, lo and behold, you come across a place like …

The Horniman Museum has its origins in the collection of Sir Frederick Horniman, the Victorian tea merchant who died in 1906.

Eventually his collection took over his family home, a spacious Victorian …

Cheap "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Solvang, California, USA
Most of the restaurants in Solvang serve a mix of Danish/German and/or American food, and most of the menu's seemed quite fattening and heavy, so we decided to opt for Mexican food instead. It felt a bit odd to be eating Mexican food in a Danish town, but Manny's turned out to be quite good. The outdoor seating was a big plus because the weather was almost perfect - sunny with a cool breeze. I …

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Des Moines, Iowa, USA
Gelato (jeh-laht-o) brings back countless memories of European travels and the joy in discovering the intense flavor and the amazing smoothness of a small rich treat called GELATO. Sometimes I believe that I traveled to Europe so many times as a result of the withdrawal I had from not being able to find gelato in Des Moines, let alone, Iowa:) So, imagine my delight in finding not one, but two gela…

Very cheap "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Beijing, China
I mentioned this pineapple beer in one of my posts and thought I should let you know how it was. It was actually surprisingly good. Okay, so it tasted kind of watered down (it's only 1.25%vol) but the flavor wasn't bad at all. In fact, being a bit watery only made it that much more refreshing on a hot day. At 25 cents a can, one of these is a great way to cool off after walking around in …

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Minaret of Jam, Afghanistan
The Minaret of Jam is the second highest minaret in the world. Standing proudly at 65 meters, it is surpassed only by the Qutb Minaret in Delhi, India. Its 9 meter wide octagonal base transitions to a beautiful cylindrical tower that narrows toward the top. Built as a victory monument in AD 1194, it is one of the most important examples of early Islamic architecture. The minaret of Jam was bui…

Hi there kids! I'm a local Pinay girl who's out to clarify all the stereotypes placed on Filipina women and Asian women in general. SEXUAL EQUALITY ---------------- As you must've read in many a travel book, sexual equality is more pronounced in the Philippines than most other Asian countries.

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Copenhagen, Denmark
I spent a few hours this afternoon at the Assistens Cemetary in Copenhagen. It's just a few minutes from where I live, and I often go there to get a bit "away" from the city - it is a very popular place for people to take a walk, look at the old graves and monuments (many fun among) - or to have a picnic. Many famous people from Denmark are buried at the cemetary - writer Hans Christian Anderse…
