MY EU TRIP 2013

Götgatan 49-51, 116 21 Stockholm, Sweden
When I got into Stockholm to meet my friends, they were staying at Hotel Scandic Malmen and it served as a central location for our crazy times and my first visit to Sweden. This hotel was a great home-away-from-home with a funky lobby to top it...
Liverpool L1 1JD, UK
Hornstulls strand 4, 117 39 Stockholm, Sweden
While attending a concert at debaser strand in Stockholm it was awesome to walk around the area and take in all the sights. Sweden in the summer is simply perfect. Toping off a day stroll with a great concert at debaser strand is a great way to...
73 Upper St, London N1 0NY, UK
During my stay in London I quickly realized that London town was great but way too pricey for my budget and everything closes early. So It was great to find this place ( La Forchetta ) right before they closed at 11pm and still be able to get a...
Erkstraße 21, 12043 Berlin, Germany
Reichenberger Str. 177, 10999 Berlin, Germany
I'm not a big beer drinker, but when drinks are inexpensive and poured out in such large portions as they were at Möbel Olfe... Why not? And not just any beer but great Polish and German beers. How could I resist. It was a great crowd packed with...
Adalbertstraße 98, 10999 Berlin, Germany
Berlin is a cultural crossroads for many, so it is no surprise that different kinds of produce are hawked all over Berlin. Even at all times of the night, fresh fruit is an option. After a day of strolling or a night of drinking, I advise hitting...
Tower Bridge, United Kingdom
This is a landmark that is so familiar, so often seen, that to visit it -- even for the first time -- feels almost ordinary. You know the Tower Bridge. You've seen it in storybooks and on movie screens. You get it. Right? Nope. Because even if it...
Sanderstraße 11, 12047 Berlin, Germany
Walking around Berlin with a friend, I never expected to hear TLC's "Red Light Special" and the Grizzly Bear's "Two Weeks" coming from a cafe in the Middle Schöneberg. The cafe Sing Blackbird definitely represents the cultural crossroads between...
Kottbusser Damm 77, 10967 Berlin, Germany
Berlin has plenty of cool places to brunch, and among the many is La Femme. I had the egg and ham scramble with fresh tangerine juice and cheese served with a side of fresh honey for dipping. The best part was how inexpensive it was. Fresh food...
Columbiadamm 160, 10965 Berlin, Germany
Berlin is at its best in the Summer and the biggest to do among Berlin locals is to soak up the sun as much as possible in the couple of months of sunshine before their cold, dark winters. Gleisdreieck Park was ideal for this. With public drinking...
Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany
One of Berlin's young and hip neighborhoods is Kreuzberg, in the south of Mitte. The neighborhood is known for its very large percentage of immigrants and second-generation immigrants, many of whom are Turkish. But in recent years, the area has...
Friedelstraße 39, 12047 Berlin, Germany
In Berlin on a sunny day, relaxing and getting a coffee go hand in hand, but Eiscafe Fräulein Frost not only has great coffee but AMAZING ice cream. I devoured the cone I got before I could take a picture. LOL. Sorry.
