I'm all about traveling efficiently -- and a great way to do that is by savoring local cuisine as you soak up the splendor of the place you came to see.
A port city on the Baltic Coast of Poland, Gdansk is truly amazing -- and amazingly historic.
I love it when I convince people to engage with the Europe I show them. Recently I heard from someone who took his girlfriend on one of my recommended hikes near Muerren, Switzerland. Love is in bloom all over Europe.
If there's an industrial wasteland where a great European city hits the water -- London, Berlin, Amsterdam, you name it -- it's slated for a major makeover. My pick for one of Europe's most impressive urban overhauls is London's Docklands.
Eastern Europe has experienced more change in the last generation than any other corner of Europe. In Prague, the National Museum on Wenceslas Square is slated to wrap up a years-long renovation.
Germany and Austria are a work in progress -- each country has great and innovative museums and galleries to share its culture with its many visitors.
