Ketchum, Idaho

Today, people still flock to Ketchum and Sun Valley both to relax and to seek adventure. Sun Valley is home to one of the country's most famous ski resorts, and Ketchum is considered the gateway to the Sun Valley Resort and the Sawtooth Recreation Area. Ketchum is also located close to the natural wonders of Big Wood River and parts of the Boise, Challis and Sawtooth National forests, thus providing visitors with a multitude of opportunities for fishing, hiking and trail riding. In town, it is apparent the residents of Ketchum celebrate their pioneer heritage and have combined their Old West roots with modern life. Nothing is more of a testament to this fact than the annual Wagon Days Big Hitch Parade, which features horse-drawn buggies, wagons and carts traveling down streets lined with modern shops and galleries.
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.

Nuremberg

Once you’ve experienced the city’s enchanting historical ambience and seen the mighty Kaiserburg, you’ll never forget them. The beautiful Old Town, which is the epitome of medieval charm, is nestled at the foot of the castle. It’s home to historical buildings, spectacular churches, one of Germany’s largest pedestrian areas and the traditional Hauptmarkt. But Nuremberg is more than just a melting pot of cultural highlights. Bavaria’s second-largest city also offers a wealth of culinary delights, so why not stop off at one of the traditional Bratwursthäuser (sausage restaurants) and try a “3 im Weggla” (3 Nuremberg grilled sausages in a roll)?
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: St. Andrew's

St. Andrew's was once known as ‘the Parish of Hardship’, but those days are long since passed. The Fashion Museum is the public face of the neighbourhood, and in the Nationalestraat and Kammenstraat area vintage clothing and haute couture go hand in hand. There’s always something going on in this district. And don’t miss Kloosterstraat, with its shops full of antique treasures and bric-a-brac.

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: Historic centre

The old city centre is steeped in history. You will find it in ancient building-fronts on narrow streets or in the imposing Grand-Place. The Plantin-Moretus Museum is the only museum in the world to be classified as a Unesco World Heritage site. In the shadow of the Cathedral of Our Lady, the city teems with life in intimate pubs and restaurants. The banks of the Scheldt are a great place for a breath of fresh air.

Vanuatu

There are few destinations that offer as much diversity – scenically and culturally – as the archipelago of 83 islands that form Vanuatu, named the Planet’s Happiest Country. You will be struck by its tropical playgrounds featuring deserted beaches, lush dense forests harbouring waterfalls, rumbling volcanoes and custom villages. Vanuatu is the only place on earth where you can officially post your mail from an underwater post office and from the ash plain on the summit of a volcano. The people of Vanuatu are ever-so welcoming, genuine and friendly and love nothing better than to show you their slice of paradise – you are sure to fall in love with Vanuatu!

Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Classified as mountain resort cities, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are situated along the Great Smoky Mountains. Booming attractions like Dollywood and the Smoky Mountain Opry draw tourism to Pigeon Forge, along with its collections of music theatres and shopping malls. Gatlinburg features Tennessee’s lone ski resort, Ober Gatlinburg, and quaint, mountain-themed specialty stores. Both cities provide gateways to North America’s most visited national park, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Malmö

Sweden’s third-largest city Malmö in the south of Sweden is a symbol of cross-border diversity and a creative and inquisitive mini-metropolis. Starting as an industrial city, Malmö is now a knowledge hub, known for its environmental work. Here you find the Scandinavia´s oldest renaissance castle close to the hip new sustainable district of Västra Hamnen. The Eurovision Song Contest 2013, the World Junior Hockey Championship 2014 and the IIHF World Championships 2015 show that Malmö is the place to be in terms of international events.

Taormina

Over the years, Taormina has been a magnificent source of inspiration for artists from all over the world - celebrated as the idyllic spot par excellence, it represents the ideal place to escape from the chaos of the city life. Romantically located 200m above the sea level, it has picturesquely settled on a coastal terrace, overlooking the vastness of the Ionian Sea. The mild temperature that rarely goes below +11 and the natural beauty of the hill where the city has risen up, are complemented by the view of the Etna Volcano in all its magnificence.
