Donegal to Kinsale in Co. Cork, this is as real and raw as Ireland gets. Start an adventure you’ll never want to end.

Östersund

In Östersund, you will enjoy life all year around. The city is "just enough" with a very own, charming atmosphere and many things unique. The high, crisp air, the bright, long summer nights and the white winters with lots of snow make it really easy to like not only the city of Östersund, but also its surroundings. Östersund is located in the center of the county of Jämtland, the self-proclaimed republic. Here you will find pleasant shopping, several small cafés, exciting cultural life and also a rich entertainment and a wide range of outdoor activities!

Johannesburg

Vibrant, ever-changing, fabulously wealthy, desperately poor, vast, multi-faceted Johannesburg flings contrasts at you from every angle. Trees line streets where houses hide their manicured gardens and pristine blue swimming pools behind high white walls, miles of shacks tell of the effects of the apartheid years – still to be overcome. The air of Africa’s most dynamic city vibrates with music and buzzes with business while its stylish restaurants, elegant shops, art galleries and theatres delight the international visitor.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Nice Côte d'Azur

The Greeks and Romans did it, as did rich lords, film stars, artists and thousands of tourists. They were just going to pass by, but instead remained in Nice and along the Riviera. Some for just a few weeks, others for months and years. They were too captivated by the light, enchanted by the scents and charmed by the taste of olives, wine and succulent vegetables. All this with a chance to dabble their toes in a turquoise sea! In addition to this, a Nice Nouveau has evolved – a sassy Mediterranean metropolis with pulsating nightlife, new avant-garde hotels and daring art galleries. The most fashionable street, the Promenade des Anglais, is the Champs-Elysées of the whole Riviera. Have you already bought your return ticket?

Chicago, Illinois

Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Oceanographic Museum

With a world-wide reputation, this outstanding museum is devoted to all marine sciences and presents more than 6,000 specimens. It was Albert I who founded the museum in 1910 and today its collections of marine fauna are priceless and unique. In the well-known “Aquarium” you will find about 90 pools with the rarest species of fish in wonderful shapes and colours. It could also be worth coming here to gaze at the building where the museum is housed. The building is placed by the Monaco-Ville cliff and is one of Monaco's most fascinating buildings and built from 100,000 tons of rock.
