A video review of the Casa Das Bifanas restaurant in Lisbon Portugal. Their specialty is the Bifanas, a delicious boiled pork sandwich. This is truly a must eat while you are in Lisbon! And it’s cheap too!
A guide for visiting Tokyo Disneyland, particularly focused on what makes Tokyo Disneyland unique compared to the other Disneyland Parks, and in my opinion, the best of the Disneyland Parks. Highlights include: Pooh’s Honey Hunt, Monsters Inc, Minnie oh Minnie, Electric Parade, and One Man’s Dream.
And the Tokyo Disneyland Electric Parade:
This year we stopped by two fun places for Halloween. Balboa Island in Newport Beach and Oak Street and Brooks Street in Laguna Beach. Check out the Halloween fun!
In Laguna Beach the Halloween festivities on Oak Street and Brook Street have become so popular that the Laguna Beach Police block off the streets from vehicles and it’s a huge block party. Actually a huge multi-block party.
Balboa Island in Newport Beach is a great place for trick-or-treating. Unlike the rest of Newport Beach where the houses are all behind gates and far apart, on Balboa Island the houses are right next to each other, and go all out on decorating. Just make sure to get here early for parking… Parking probably fills up around 5pm.
A video review of the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon. A very nice business hotel located about 5 km from the central touristy parts of Lisbon.
A video review of the St. Louis Union Station Hotel by Doubletree. Voted one of the top 10 historic hotels by USA Today, this hotel is built inside the former St. Louis Union Station, which used to be one of the busiest train stations in the world.
A video review of The Prairie By Rachel Ashwell Bed and Breakfast Hotel near Roundtop Texas. A very unique B&B with cottages and farmhouses, with a shabby chic design. Located between Houston and Austin Texas.
A travel guide for visiting the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin Texas. A must-see if you are in Austin, the Capitol Building is open to the public almost every day of the year for free guided and self guided tours. It’s nice to see a government building that really feels like it is there for “the people” instead of for “the government.”
A travel guide for visiting the Nuuanu Pali Lookout in Oahu Hawaii. The Pali Lookout is a great place to admire amazing panoramic views of the Windward (northeast) side of Oahu. The Pali Lookout is also one of the the windiest, and coldest spots on the island of Oahu.
A travel guide for visiting the Belém district in Lisbon Portugal. This neighborhood is packed with historical sites including: Tower of Belém, Monument to the Discoveries, Jerónimos Monastery, Pasteis de Belém and the amazing Coach Museum.
A travel guide for visiting “Mad” King Ludwig’s swan castles, particularly the Neuschwanstein Castle and the Hohenschwangau Castle. Built in 1886, Neuschwanstein is also known as the castle of the fairy-tale king and it was inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
