Grand Mound, Washington

Washington’s mountains rise from the ground like the mighty, mythical gods of lore. Stretching upwards with little regard for the communities of people peppered around them, such grand indifference captures our imaginations and awe. We strive to scale and conquer them, to master their trails and hills, and their magnificence allows us to transcend who we are in some magical way. Grand Mound, Washington places you within reach of the state’s majestic mountains, and thus its main attractions.
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.

Toronto

Toronto is an urban mosaic of cultures and ethnicity considered one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It is the most heavily populated city in Canada, a cosmopolitan financial, commercial and cultural center, blending its multicultural heritage — about 80 ethnic groups speaking more than 100 languages — with urban chic. With a lot to offer in terms of culture and entertainment any time of year, Toronto is the perfect travel destination for families and solo travelers alike.
Antwerp, Belgium

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.

Rouen

If you like food, art and architecture you will feel right at home in Rouen. You can find this historical capital right in the heart of Upper Normandy. Being located on the banks of the beautiful Seine River, Rouen is an easy launch pad for exploring the French countryside, and picturesque areas like Connelles and Val-de-Reuil can be found just around the corner. Walking through Rouen is like walking through history. This is truly a city with an abundance of historic buildings, markets and shops.

Barcelona

Fanciful architecture and hip restaurants have come together with the sunny southern Spanish climate and beaches. This has transformed Barcelona in just a few decades from a rough port city to one of Europe’s—if not the world’s—premier destinations. Stroll along La Rambla, admire the Casa Calvet’s façade or the Casa Mila designed by Gaudi, visit the Market of la Boqueria or shop at El Corte Inglés, and sample some of the many bars, cafés and late night haunts while you’re at it.

Mallorca

Mallorca’s reputation as a booze-soaked party spot is an immense injustice. It is certainly a very popular destination for groups of beautiful young vacationers to lie in the sun and sip some colourful cocktails before a night of intense clubbing, but to reduce this Balearic jewel to that is to ignore its long and rich history, its breath-taking landscapes and its irresistible charm. What the island obviously offers in idyllic beaches and rowdy parties it more than matches with culture, personality and awe-inspiring vistas. Mallorca’s beaches, however, with their golden sands and crystalline waters, remain the island’s biggest draw.
