And here are some tips and observations to help you navigate "golden Prague":     read post

7 essential places to visit on a school trip to Valencia, Spain

  William Warby     Spain's explored third largest city is a splendid choice for student trips from primary school through university - even if it's just a long weekend - as it mixes a wonderfully preserved historic core with modern neighbourhoods (including dramatic contemporary landmarks), fabulous dining, and appealing cultural opportunities - much of it concentrated in a relatively compact centre, making it easy to take it without too much walking. Valencia is especially recommendable…

 Art Wager Here’s a question for you: In which city would you find the USA’s largest arts district? New York City? Los Angeles? Chicago? Perhaps even Washington DC?

  • I've been intrigued by Paraguay ever since a good high school friend of mine spent a year there as an exchange student a loooong time ago - plus other reasons like a curiosity for off-the-beaten-path spots and the fact that Paraguay is the only Latin American country where most people speak a language other than the one (Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) left by its colonizers. So I really enjoyed this account of a month living in its capital Asunción from a blogger for the site MyLatinLife.com: https://mylatinlife.com/2020/03/31/asuncion-paraguay-travel-guide/
  • I went to college in Washington DC many years ago, and have been back a number of times since, but lately it's been quite a while. So just this week I was interested to catch this very recently in the Huffington Post. I'll be going back in exactly one month, so am taking note! https://www.huffpost.com/entry/mistakes-tourists-washington-dc_l_62...
  • Just saw "Uncharted" several days ago - silly but quite a ride (not surprising, since it was adapted from a video game) - but one of the things I especially liked about it was seeing locations in Barcelona - the Sagrada Familia, Montjuich, the Barri Gòtic, Santa Maria del Pi, and so forth! Here's the trailer: https://youtu.be/eHp3MbsCbMg

  • I was in Toronto once in April -- and it snowed. But I had a great time anyway!  Can't wait to go back.
  • Welcome to our new group members.  It is nice to see so many new places added to our list.  It makes me want to get out and explore.   Though know that is not realistic as Toronto's spring and summer traveler's have begun to trickle in.
