    Turkish Airlines Istanbul CIP Lounge review – 12 hours

Nothing has changed … in fact, they’ve gotten better and Air Canada just barely got their flagship lounge in Montreal off the ground.

    24 hours in Ljubljana: 8pm-8pm – 11 Quick Thoughts …

    Compared to Budapest, Zagreb or even Bratislava … Ljubljana doesn’t offer even close to the same charms, old cities or nightlife.

    Is the Budapest Card worth it? Exploring Budapest with the Budapest Card

    Tourism in European cities tends to be very organized. The national and city tourism boards tend to do a great job at packaging, especially when it comes to creating a pass that works.

    Over the years, I’ve had the opinion that any restaurant that has XXXXX Fusion cuisine will be a shitty foodie experience.
