Tryggvagata 1, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
Bæjarins beztu pylsur, which humbly translates as "the best hot dog in town," is a simple stand in central Reykjavík whose popularity over the decades has given it a kind of cult status. Almost everyone in the country has eaten...

Nauthólsvegur, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
Riding a strange, shrunken horse into a mossy canyon outside Reykjavik on a bright, bracing day with winter rolling in and a plate of minke whale waiting for you at day's end is tops. Doing so on three days' sleep deprivation is, in fact,...

Vesturgata 17, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
Oh! I left it in downtown Reykjavik! One of the coolest things about Iceland's capital is the unconventional inner city. Everything about this place is a treat.

Rauðhella, Hafnarfjörður, Iceland
While driving the ring road around Iceland in May, my wife and I parked on the side of the road (our rented Toyota Yaris couldn't make it to this roughshod parking lot) and walked into Raufarholshellir ice cave to explore. There were literally no...

Mýrargata 2, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland

As we approached midnight, everyone was out on the decks to view the midnight sunset. Yes, our clocks read 11:30 p.m. and the sun was still out. The days before that, as we sailed from Halifax to Reykjavik, we experienced an eerie increase in...

Hallgrímstorg 101, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
You can’t miss Hallgrímskirkja, Reykjavík’s 240-foot-tall, rocket-shaped church, which soars above the city skyline and is illuminated at night. Designed by famed national architect Guðjón Samúelsson in...

Reykjavík, Iceland
We got to Reykjavik on a rainy night, and the first thing I saw and heard was a lot of people in the street partying and Cher's "Believe" blasting from some club, loud enough to hear it everywhere. I though then that this place was crazy, but then...

Bratislava, Slovakia
Walking around the historic downtown area of Bratislava, I was pleased to come upon this little piece of clever utilitarian art. Any city planner can decide where to place a manhole cover on the street. But it takes someone with a little foresight...

In case you need a break and a hot chocolate...

62 613, Obchodná, 811 06 Bratislava, Slovakia
Not too far from the old town of Bratislava is the Slovak Pub, which is more of a restaurant of authentic Slovakian food than it is a pub. Yes, there is beer there and good beer, so this should be your go-to eatery in the city. One of my favorite...

Rybárska brána 217/1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Someone else posted a photo of a street performer imitating this iconic figure in Slovak folklore. Peeping Tom is as he's named. A mischievous sewer worker who sneaked peeks under the dresses of unsuspecting women.

Michalská 581/3, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
One of the first spots I ate at in old Bratislava was this gem of an eatery hidden underground. It was very charming and the food was delicious. I recommend either the liver dumpling soup or the Slovak national dish, Halusky.

Michalská 390/22, 811 03 Bratislava, Slovakia
This gate opening once stood as part of a wall surrounding the city of Bratislava (it was a much smaller city of course). Today it's just a lovely piece of historic architecture as you walk through Old Bratislava. My fiance told me that you should...

Rudnayovo námestie 1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Standing in Bratislava since 1452, the cathedral is a historic centerpiece of Bratislava and of Eastern Europe. During the Ottoman Empire days when Hungary was conquered, St. Martin's Cathedral became the coronation church for Hungarian kings.

It's a shame the castle was under renovations that day (all covered in scaffolding). I did grab this nice HDR shot of the entry gate as we made our way up to the top.

Miletičova 580/54, 821 08 Bratislava, Slovakia
Venturing into the neighborhood of Nivy, you'll find this large outdoor market full of fresh produce, cheap goods, and a few stands selling true Slovak street food. For me, I come to this spot to get langoše (lahn-goesh). It's yeast dough...
