By Nick Mosele
Are you thinking about a city break in Europe but don’t know where to start?
? Are you ‘local’ and looking for a fabulous long weekend break?
? Or maybe you’re from the US, Canada, Australia, or elsewhere and are planning a European tour?
No matter! As long as you’re looking for cities that match the criteria below, then look no further:
1) Easy to get to
2) Loads to see and do
3) Great food for all budgets
4) A wide range of shopping
5) Sights and events for culture vultures
Here are my top 10 European city breaks.
1. Stockholm - My local town
Stockholm is amazing… vibrant… modern and old at the same time. The city is timeless and charming. It is built on 14 islands, where the huge and beautiful Lake Malaren joins the Baltic.
The water is so pure and clean, that you’ll see people salmon fishing in the middle of the city (except in winter when you’ll see ice skaters).
Be sure to walk the cobbled-stoned streets of Gamla Stan (old town), maybe buy an axe at the Viking shop, and for sure take one of many boat trips to the local islands of the 14,000+-island archipelago. Oh, and if you’re after a mad party, try a boat to Finland on a spring or summer weekend crossing.
London is my previous home, hardly needing introduction. Its 2000 years of history goes head to head with the modern world. It is bursting at the seams with restaurants and shopping (Oxford Street and Camden for starters). Tour museums. Visit Madame Tussauds wax works, the London Eye, see art at the Tate Gallery, and of course, enjoy any sort of nightlife you fancy.
3. Brussels Great beer
In addition to the beer, Brussels boasts fantastic architecture and numerous museums. It has more Michelin restaurants for its size than any other European city. Visit the Place du Sablon for bargains galore at the weekend antique markets.
Lille was named European Culture Capital in 2004. It is crammed with designer shops lining beautiful olde worlde cobbled streets. Visit the Musee des Beaux Arts for art or eat at brilliant restaurants. A must is the Les Heures Bleues, where global artists fill the streets and squares – performing in parades, concerts, and festivals on holiday weekends.
Prague is stunning! (I’ve been here maybe 30 times) Fairytale architecture abounds – The Charles Bridge must be seen to believed – pictures are not enough, but you’ll take a lot! Eat food in everything from romantic candle-lit restaurants to hardcore party bars. Prague is not as cheap as it once was, but still good. If you’re adventurous, try a local bar or club – at half the price you’ll pay in the main tourist venues. Be sure to take a day trip to the spa town of Karlovy Vary if you can – absolutely stunning.
Yes, Amsterdam is a party town, and you can do all the things you’ve heard of … However if you’re grown up, you’ll find a wonderful canal-crossed city lined with gabled houses and huge moored-up houseboats. It has something for everyone: intense nightlife of every type imaginable and relaxed daytimes… go for coffee… visit Rembrandt’s house and the Van Gogh museum.
See the stunning Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Square. Venice is simply unforgettable. Quaint shops and enticing restaurants abound. You must take a ride on a waterbus and get an ice cream! Venice is ideal for a short break.
Barcelona just has to be done at least once. The city is bustling, lively and fun, with amazing Gaudi and gothic architecture. It boasts a legendary nightlife at the Olympic area and more sedate old and modern art museums. The climate is fantastic, too.
Strasbourg is a cosmopolitan, bustling French city with loads to see and do. Attractions include canals and mediaeval bridges, and La Petite France, a beautiful quarter of the city with half-timbered houses in contrasting pastel shades. Experience spectacular views from the top of the Notre Dame cathedral.
See Via Montenapoleone for world-leading Italian and international fashion designer studios. Great festivals are held throughout the year. There are stunning local lakes with superb facilities for visitors, and Milan Duomo, the third largest cathedral in the world. Milan also has loads of art galleries and museums.
What about Paris and Rome and…
OK I know I know, no Paris? Berlin? Budapest? Rome? Vienna? Well there’s the problem with a top 10 European city holiday review. All of the others – and many more besides – are fantastic and should go on your list. It’s simply that the top 10 listed are this humble traveler’s top ten.

Theme parks are a mainstay of the family holiday options, especially in the summer. Something about amusement parks makes kids believe they are characters in their own favourite cartoons or on the set of their adventures movies exercising their right to one thrilling experience after the other.
Adults, we all know, are not much different. While we’re happy to claim to be at these hubs of boundless enjoyment purely for the sake of the kids, we secretly (and sometimes not so secretly) enjoy the experience. If you have already visited a theme park with children you may have already experienced the transformation from strict and orderly parent to 21st century Peter Pan for a few weeks in these modern day Neverlands.
There are many theme parks to choose from in the UK (such as Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Legoland and Chessington World Adventures). Europe offers many more options, from the oldest theme park in Europe at the Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen, Denmark) to the home of the biggest rollercoaster at Europa-Park (Rust, Germany). However, no theme park evokes as much excitement in children, or entices as many visits, as Disneyland in Paris, France. Over 12 million people visit the park annually, dwarfing second place Europa-Park’s 4 million annual visitors.
Opened in 1992 in Marne-la-Vallee in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France, Disneyland Paris is one of France’s and Europe’s most visited tourist attractions. Its unique appeal to families stems from the longevity of the brand and its characters. It is one of very few childhood crazes that can be said to be shared by the children of today, their parents and grandparents. Perhaps only sports share this privileged status.
With a combination of theme parks (Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park), retail, dining, entertainment hubs, golf courses and seven hotels there is lots for every member of the family to enjoy, both on their own and together as a family. Impressive, but you would not expect anything less from an attraction that is one fifth the size of Paris.
The icing on the cake is that Paris – a cultural centre and one of Europe’s top tourist destinations – is only a few minutes away and can easily be added into the mix of your holiday plans. While the city may suit parents more than children, the whole family can enjoy the fruits of cooking classes that are becoming increasingly popular weekend holiday excuses in themselves. The Pompidou centre also offers a variety of weird and wonderful exhibitions, and several installations aimed directly at children and young adults.
Close by, outside of Paris, the Parc Des Felins in Lumigny-Nesles-Ormeaux is a theme park with more genuine animal entertainment than Mickey & Minnie Mouse. This park is home to 25 species of cats, plus Lemurs and Farm Animals. The cats are afforded a lot of space and the many tame and non-dangerous species are allowed to walk freely so you can observe them in their natural behaviour.
There are many Chateaux to enjoy, and the open spaces and beautiful gardens are well suited to kids with a lot of energy or walks with very young children pushchairs. The Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Maincy is perhaps the most beautiful of all, and every summer Saturday sees the exterior lit by 2,000 candles, while every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month features a firework display.
Are you planning a flight with your kids? It doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. Be sure that your next air travel experience is a happy, memorable event. This article presents tips that can help make the trip a joy rather than a hassle.
Traveling with children can be elating – or very stressful. Flying with kids poses particular challenges that can daunt even the most patient parents. Preparation and planning can avoid many problems. These tips should steer you in the right direction.
How to Keep Track of Your Kids in the Airport
When a child goes missing, your kneejerk reaction is instant panic. Try the following:
? Each child should carry a loud whistle on a neck cord. Give your children instructions to blow on the whistle if they become separated from you.
? Dress your kids in bright, distinctive clothing. If everyone in the entire family wears the same type of outfit, parents will be able to spot kids more easily (and vice versa).
? Take a few family photos in the airport before you leave. You should have portraits and full-length shots of everyone stored in your camera or cell phone. This makes identification easier for authorities if someone goes missing.
How to Keep your Kids Occupied during the Trip
Pack enough activities to keep every child entertained.
? Pads of plain paper for origami, drawing pictures, passing notes, and playing games like tic-tac-toe or hangman
? Pencil crayons (better than wax crayons, which can melt)
? Books of stickers
? Portable gaming system with a couple of new games
? Portable DVD player and a few videos that nobody has seen yet
? Puzzles or mazes printed from Internet sites
? Kids’ card games
? Kids’ carry-ons filled with items from the Dollar Store
How to Keep Tummies Happy
Favorite treats might be hard to locate while you travel, especially if your kids are picky eaters.
? Pack a few healthy snacks.
? Make sure that each child has gum or something chewy to help equalize ears during the flight.
? If you are taking an evening flight, it might be easiest to make sure that everyone eats before the plane leaves. Younger kids will probably feel more comfortable in their pajamas.
How to Keep Everyone Clean
Kids (and adults) spill things. Who wants to travel with ketchup all over their shirt or clothes drenched in apple juice? Adults become distracted and otherwise well-behaved children may act out when they feel “yucky”.
? Pack lots of disposable hand-wipes or baby wipes for minor accidents.
? Products like Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover are extremely handy and they don’t take up much room.
? Take along a change of clothes for everyone in your carry-on luggage.
? Use plastic shopping bags or kitchen catchalls for dirty clothing.
Don’t be Afraid to Ask for Help
Handling all your luggage, kids, stroller, camera, and whatever else you might bring along is a daunting task. If you need help to make a connecting flight, arrange for it in advance with your airline.

Families nowadays prefer travelling by plane, as they find this a viable option after the fuel prices have skyrocketed. Air travel saves you from boredom and even reduces your tension while travelling with children. You can travel without any hassles by preparing yourself and following some simple tips, to make your flight a dream trip instead of a nightmare.
Plan your trip well ahead, as you can sometimes catch up with some good deals. Six months should be good time, as it gives you maximum time to shop online or under the guidance of a travel agent.
It is very easy nowadays to book online and travel agents are the best people to guide you through kid friendly flights. Some airlines provide activity packs and special meals for children. Some flights do not offer a choice of food and this makes traveling with kids very uncomfortable.
Before you finalize your tickets, be sure to check your layovers to avoid jet lag. You must also consider the arrival and departure time, as it is always best to air travel at night if you are travelling from east to west. This proves less tiring as the kids go off to sleep almost immediately. A stopover in another city provides one with the chance to take in the wonders of a new place before reaching your final destination.
While booking your seats be cautious, as it can be very embarrassing to try and bargain with your fellow passengers to exchange seats with you. If the airline doesn?t assign you the requested seat numbers by the time you check in, then be sure to arrive early. You can also book a seat for child that is specially designed forchildren, as these seats are a combination of a booster and a car seat. This is more secure than lap belts. This way you and your child will have a comfortable journey.
Some airlines permit the passengers to get their boarding passes printed a day before the journey and you should take this opportunity, as it saves time and the airport delay.
Once the travel details are taken care of, you can think of packing for your journey. Nothing can be more disturbing than traveling with an overload of luggage. Travel light and make sure your baggage does not weigh more than what airlines allow. If possible, combine the kids? luggage with yours, to reduce the risk of losing things.
Only carry essential items like medication and passports in your carry-on bags. Backpacks are ideal for children and adults alike, since the offer a lot of space and you can keep your hands free. The smaller kids can have small backpacks of their own.
Involve kids while packing and let them pack their own things. Allow them to pack their favorite clothes along with games, books and toys. Crayons, coloring pads or a portable DVD player is an ideal way to keep them entertained during the flight. Don?t forget to pack extra batteries for the electronic devices, as you may not be able to buy them at the airport.
While travelling with kids, be sure to take all the necessities like medication, clothes and you can carry books and crayons as surprise add-ons in your bag. Ensure that the children consume a lot of fluids, so that they do not get dehydrated and you should avoid giving them dry snacks. Always keep hand wipes ready to keep their faces and hands clean.
Travelling with kids, if planned well in advance can be very enjoyable and memorable.
New sights and sounds can be overwhelming to a young child and vacation excitement can quickly turn into temper tantrums if you?re not prepared.
Here are 10 parent-practiced tips to help make traveling with toddlers fun.
1. Choose a family-friendly destination. Skip the crowded tourist destinations and opt instead for a locale that is accustomed to having kids around.
2. Safety first! Always make sure your child?s car seat is properly secured. Also, use a removable window shade to help block the sun.
3. Pack entertainment. ?Best bets for entertaining your child in the car and hotel room include favorite books, games and toys,? says Nancy Wolpert of Nickelodeon Home Entertainment. For all-inclusive entertainment, she recommends two new DVDs that feature a collection of kids? favorite TV shows. ?The Nick Picks and Nick Jr. Favorites DVDs will keep them entertained for hours,? Wolpert promises.
4. Plan rest stops. If you?re driving, break up the monotony by stopping every couple of hours (or more frequently if necessary). Kids need to stretch out after being cooped up in a car for a while. Consider bringing along a ball to kick or throw around during these breaks.
5. Be flexible. Set realistic expectations and let your child soak up the experience at his or her own pace. You might want to limit your activities to one a day. Otherwise, you could wind up with an over-stimulated toddler.
6. Bring water and plenty of snacks. Fruit, granola bars, mini juice cartons and small boxes of cereal make for great, healthy snacks.
7. Bring a beloved item. A blankie or cuddly toy will help your toddler feel safe and secure. Be sure to have a replacement on hand, too. It will save you some heartache should the original get lost.
8. Start and end your day early. Kids are at their best in the morning, so plan accordingly.
9. Stick to your routine. Eating, napping and playing at the same time each day may be all your child needs to feel comfortable in a new environment.
10. Take lots of pictures. They?re only young once, so enjoy every moment!

As the state capital of New South Wales (http://www.visitnsw.com.au) in Australia, Sydney is certainly full of rich history that any traveler would like to discover for themselves. Established in 1788 when Briton Arthur Phillip claimed Australia for England, Sydney has grown to be one of the more famous cities in the world, boasting over four million people for the population.
Situated along the Sydney Harbor, Sydney is known as the ?Harbor City? in which travelers and residents can enjoy such sights as the Sydney Opera House and Harbor Bridge. A previous host of the Summer Olympics, Sydney is certainly creating a destination for the travelers of today and the future.
The indigenous Australians (http://www.dreamtime.net.au) once roamed the lands of Sydney and the surrounding areas for approximately thirty thousand years. And while their numbers dwindled before the arrival of Arthur Phillips, they still inhabited the area and made their homes in the region.
In the past, there were three different languages spoken in Sydney: Darug, Dharawal, and Guringai. Many of these languages also have separate dialects for various tribes and clans. These languages are all but gone now, but rock carvings remain to tell the stories of these ancient peoples.
In 1770, James Cook was the first to see Australia and note its existence. This led to the British convict settlement as founded by Arthur Phillip. Founded in Sydney Cove, this settlement was named after the British home secretary. A few years later in 1789, a virulent disease spread over the land, killing the indigenous populations?many believe that this was the result of smallpox.
By 1820, there were few aborigines left and the period of civilization began: the education and Christianization of the natives. With the leadership of Governor Macquarie, the city of Sydney began to take a more organized form. Roads and wharves were constructed and local development was rapid. People began arriving from Britain and Ireland in order to find a new life for themselves.
This influx of people led to some of the first villages and later towns in Sydney. As the era of gold rushes came and went, the development of suburbs and improved transportation also blossomed. The construction of railways and tramways in the nineteenth century aided this rapid development. By the twentieth century, Sydney already had a population of over a million people. While the Great Depression hit Sydney hard, the Harbor Bridge (http://www.sydney.visitorsbureau.com.au/page2-03g.html) was still completed during that time.
With the second highest immigrant population of any larger world city, Sydney is an interesting mix of culture and expression. In fact, forty-five percent of the population is said to be migrants of some relation. This makes for a different feeling in the city?one of acceptance and sharing, rather than segregation.
This allows Sydney to be an ideal vacation destination for those travelers that want a sense of history and development as well as great weather and nearby activities. Sydney is more than a vacation hotspot; it?s where time has shown that anything can be achieved with patience and hard work.
The Aquarium of the Pacific is located near the waterfront in The Pike at Rainbow Harbor in the city of Long Beach, California. It is one of the largest aquariums in the United States. Its nearly 1,000 species fill 19 major habitats and 32 focus exhibits and take visitors on a journey throughout the Pacific Ocean’s three regions: Southern California/Baja, the Tropical Pacific, and the Northern Pacific.

The Aquarium provides behind the scenes tours where you can dive into the underwater world and discover places in the Aquarium where most people do not have a chance to go and even feed the anamals. Visitors are encouraged to watch animal feedings and learn more about the animals and environmental issues at habitat presentations. Join the Animal Encounter interactive program which allows guests to feed, touch, and go behind the scenes with some of the more than 12,500 inhabitants, including the Shark Animal Encounter which provides guests with an opportunity to be in a pool with one of the zebra sharks, or maybe even the 240-pound thorny ray.
From Memorial Day through Labor Day you can aboard The Conqueror, a 90-foot research vessel for a 90-minute marine science excursion where you will have an opportunity to touch a variety of marine animals while you learn about their natural habitat and about life in the ocean.
The Aquarium Of The Pacific is located at 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802. Parking for the Aquarium is on the water side of Shoreline Drive between Chestnut Place and Aquarium Way. Parking is $6 for Aquarium guests in both the Aquarium and Pike parking structures when you show an Aquarium ticket stub.

It is very difficult to establish what to see first when traveling in America. The place is so vast that it would be practically impossible to visit everything that the magnificent country has to offer.
In spite of the fact it’s expensive to fly and lodge there, Hawaii ranks as no. 1 in honeymoon popularity. Stunning beaches and hidden inlets; world-class hotels; fresh, inventive cuisine; water sports in abundance; extraordinary natural beauty; and perfect weather make this an ideal vacation spot year after year.
Las Vegas is ranked America’s adult fun capital, with excitement going on all through the day. People easily get married here and again, so much fun, is another reason couples flock to this paradise in the middle of a desert.
Florida offers lots of coastal beaches. From the festive atmosphere of Miami and the Keys, to upscale Palm Beach and Boca Raton, to Walt Disney World in Orlando, to the action in Daytona and Cape Kennedy, to the gentle beaches and great sunsets on the Gulf Coast side, to the affordable accommodations of the Panhandle, it’s one state that offers something for all couples who enjoy warm weather.
On the other hand, if you love snow and fun you might want to try one of the scores of American vacations existing like the high mountains like Aspen in Colorado, the green snowy mountains of Vermont or if instead you are a someone who worships the sun then you could visit the countless attractions that Newport Beach in Rhode Island has to offer.
Another of those American attractions that everybody all over the world would like to visit at least once in your life is Disneyland. Fun is assured for all the family and friends alike. Any age is the ideal age to visit a Disneyland resort with its classical characters and theme parks to fit the needs of the whole family unit.
If you are a person who likes hiking and sightseeing, America has many attractions for that too. You potentially can travel from the East coast and slowly go across the country and finish out in the West by simply camping from site to site with an RV or just simply take it on the road and slowly admire the gorgeous sceneries that the vast American landscape has to offer.
You can visit eye-catching backcountry sites to make or rebuild footpaths, cabins and shelters. In the process, you meet new people, explore canyons like the majestic Grand Canyon in Arizona, peaks and valleys, and get pleasure from calm evenings around a campfire. These kinds of vacations are more pleasurable than labor in the long run!
Another example of a one of its kind experience is, in the Texas location where you can visit Big Bend National Park or plainly tour the Texas Hill Country. In Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma store is located right in the heart of a gorgeous countryside. You can visit the countless lakes and parks in Oklahoma or head out to the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas or just simply head out west for your own grand adventure.
And finally don’t forget the big apple, New York and its myriad of traits. Coney Island in New York State where you can take pleasure in the seashore and boardwalk and don’t forget the Coney Island Museum together with so many historical references offered to the public making it one of the most proficient American vacations that every person should see for himself or herself at least once.
