Chapter 4: How to Save on Hotels in Europe Whether you’re planning to travel for two days or 20 days, where you stay can have a big impact on both your budget and your trip experience. We’ve spent the past 18 years hunting down the best hotel values in Europe’s priciest cities. While we’ve seen some big changes, good and bad, over the years (finally, free Wi-Fi!), there are certain bits of “Cheapo advice” that remain the same today as in 2001.

Twice a year the small city of Takayama has a festival where huge floats made of wood are pulled by men through the streets. The floats are works of art and some are on display at a museum. Here’s a look at the display. And art showing how it was done. A shrine in the city had an enormous tree which had this little religious figure tucked into it. Another little god seen. Lantern and cherry trees. Some great landscaping.

The Palais de la Porte Dorée

In 1931 there was a “Paris Colonial Exhibition” . It lasted for six months and took place in the Bois-de-Vincennes (see previous posts, e.g. here, here, here and here). France was then the second biggest colonial empire, after the British one. Some territories, like Algeria, were already considered as French departments, but most of them were still real colonies, basically to be found in northern, central and western Africa, south-east Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean… One looked of cours...

Snorkeling around Ulleungdo Island

Ulleungdo is a volcanic island 75 miles east of South Korea, a dream for any off-the-beaten-track traveler. The island has long attracted South Koreans who appreciate its dramatic volcanic cliffs and rock formations, primeval forests, and crystal clear water. Hiking is very popular, meaning some trails get congested during the peak season. The surrounding ocean, however, is often a lot emptier — making snorkeling a great way to explore parts of the island that the average tourist won’t see. ...

Glamping resort Patagonia, Chile

You don’t get a whole lot of street cred for glamping. Tell your friends you’re going on a mission to Patagonia, and they’ll imagine you hiking up snowy boulders and sleeping in flimsy tents on a mountainside. Real character-building stuff. Post pictures sipping Champagne in a jacuzzi that same night, and now you’re a bougie tourist. But really, who cares? Because when you can enjoy some of the most spectacular wilderness in the world from the warmth of a finely appointed yurt, street cred d...

The first step on the road to a minimal final bill is to research exactly what is included in the ticket price of your specific cruise. This can save you money in th...

Best things to do in Marche, Italy

The stone piazza in Urbisaglia, in the Marche region of central Italy, is like many in the country’s medieval villages. School kids play soccer under the shadow of a 16th-century tower, their abandoned book bags strewn on the church steps. Two older men sit on a bench and talk politics. A woman crosses the piazza, heading home with groceries in-hand. The clothing store shopkeeper steps outside to smoke a cigarette as a pair of travelers watch Italian life unfold, relaxing over aperitivi and s...

Are You Getting All the Credit Card Perks for Travelers?

Every once in a while I'll be on a tour or staying at a hotel where I can't help but hear the conversations around me. Sometimes I hear something that makes me stop what I'm doing and listen. The latest happened on a trip to Peru recently when one traveler asked, in amazement, "Why would you use a debit card to pay for an $8,000 tour? Are you out of your mind?!" The recipient of this question mumbled something about responsible spending and not going into debt, but the others at the table hit ...

Spanish museum nazi painting verdict

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid will be allowed to keep a controversial painting after a 14-year legal battle. When Lilly Cassirer tried to flee Germany before World War II, she was forced to trade a valuable Camille Pissarro painting — the “Rue Saint-Honore in the Afternoon. Effects of Rain” — for her freedom. That painting has since ended up in the Spanish museum though the family of Cassirer staked a claim to the painting and hasn’t stopped trying to recover it. Even though it was ...

No-selfies woman posts ‘dead' photos

Selfies have taken over social media, but even the most pro-selfie proponents would probably admit that, ultimately, selfies aren’t exactly a good thing. Even with this tacit understanding, many of us will simply go on extending our arms, nailing the perfect smile, and snapping 50 photos of ourselves that we will later scrutinize for hours, before choosing one to post on Instagram. One woman, however, decided that she would rather die than take a selfie, and she’s putting her camera where her...

Box Jellyfish sting antidote

The world’s most venomous creature just got a little bit less dangerous, thanks to researchers at the University of Sydney who have found an antidote for the sting of the Australian box jellyfish. The jellyfish has enough venom to kill over 60 people with a single sting, causing pain, skin necrosis, and, in serious cases, cardiac arrest and death with just a few minutes. Now, however, researchers have found a molecular antidote that blocks the sting’s symptoms if applied within 15 minutes. T...
