Neuer Kamp 30, 20357 Hamburg, Germany
Every Saturday an interesting mix of locals descends to haggle on the 'Flohschanze', a great flea- and antique market in the Schanzenviertel, not too far from the trendy Karolinenviertel. People here take care to preserve the original market...
17696 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33194, USA
I have wanted to fly through the Everglades with an air boat for years–just not with 50 loud, jabbering tourists. I finally found River of Grass Adventures, a family owned outfit, that provides private tours with seasoned 'Glades'-men, who know...

Wohlwillstraße 1, 20359 Hamburg, Germany
I'll come right out with it: I didn't have much of an interest in touring a red light district. Luckily someone strong-armed me into it, and here I was, walking (not working) the streets of St. Pauli. My guide was tri-lingual (German, English,...
