A Walking Tour of Munich - Introduction

With a history spanning centuries of building and rebuilding, Munich is one of
Europe's most architecturally interesting cities. Postwar developments have marred
Munich's once-homogeneous look, but in rebuilding their city after the war,
Münchners tried to respect tradition as much as possible. If you, like the ordinary
visitor, have time for only one walking tour, make it the historic center, the point
where the city began before it branched out in all directions.

First take either the U-Bahn or the S-Bahn to Marienplatz. After leaving the subway
stop, the tour of the historic center begins to the immediate west, where you'll see a
dignified cathedral with impressive brickwork...

Argentina

Mention Argentina and images of gauchos and the tango come to mind. But for many who visit it’s also a country full of natural treasures. These range from its barren northern landscapes to the sheer beauty of the soaring Andes. From spectacular thousand-foot high waterfalls - to its extensive wine region.

At the center of all this is the capital city of Buenos Aires, renowned for its European sophistication. Despite its size, one-third of the population of Argentina clusters in Buenos Aires, the economic core of the country, and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world.

It’s a rare privilege indeed to be able to get this exceptional perspective of the capital, because from this vantage point one can truly appreciate the grandeur of this legendary city.

Below us now is the famous “plaza de mayo” considered to be the very heart of Argentina. It is in this square that the people have always come together, in good times and in bad.

In the Veneto Region, in the waters of the Adriatic, is one of the most romantic and evocative places in the world, a priceless treasure: the Venetian Lagoon.

At the heart of this legendary Province is the Serenissima or Most Serene Republic, with its characteristic bridges spanning the canals navigated by gondolas, its monuments, piazzas, narrow lanes and silent waters.
Venice is actually a group of fascinating small islands, where art and history combine with old trades and the beauty of the sea.

Sandy beaches washed by the Adriatic Sea characterize the main resorts that offer vacationers every kind of comfort. The fascinating inland is composed of many paths traversing the green scenery, along with peaceful rivers that pass through small towns rich in history and fabulous villas.

It is an area full of the exquisite flavors of its typical dishes and a renowned “wine list."

Many opportunities for fun abound as well: outdoor sports, nightlife in the many glamorous night spots, and shopping in the typical crafts workshops to buy souvenirs.

Fish Boil

Even people who don't like fish, have been known to like this fish. That's why a fish boil is a must-do experience when you visit Door County. It all starts with a blazing bonfire under a kettle of salted water. People circle around to warm themselves and take in the crisp smell. When the temperature is just right and the crackle of the fire is just loud enough, the boil master adds a basket of potatoes and onions to the kettle. A few crackles later, the mild whitefish steaks, fresh from Lake Michigan, are delicately lowered in. At just the right moment, kerosene is tossed into the fire, exciting the blaze and causing the water to boil over, dramatically carrying off the fish oil that has collected on top. The fish are pulled out and greeted with a generous drizzling of butter. Ladies and gentlemen, dinner is served.

Grand Centrtal Tour

The most notable feature of the Main Concourse is the great astronomical
mural, from a design by the French painter Paul Helleu, painted In gold
leaf on cerulean blue oil. Arching over the 80,000 square-foot Main
Concourse, this extraordlnary palntlng portrays the Mediterranean sky wlth
October .. to ..March zodiac and 2,500 stars.

The 60 largest stars mark the constellations and are illuminated with fiber
optics, but used to be lit with 40 watt light bulbs that workers changed
regularly by climbing above the ceiling and pulling the lightbulbs out from
above.

Soon after the Terminal opened, it was noted that the section of the zodiac
depicted by the mural was backwards. For several decades lively
controversy raged over why this was so. Some of the explanations offered
were that it just looked better, or it didn't fit into the ceiling any other way.
The actual reason is that Paul Helleu took his inspiration from a medieval
manuscript, published in an era when painters and cartographers depicted
the heavens as they would have been seen from outside the celestial
sphere.

Great Britain

The desperate tourist's quest for his or her ancestral tartan has brought lots of business - and lots of amusement - to modern Scots. In fact, tartans originally had no clan affiliation, indicating only the geographic base of the wearer. It wasn't until the 19th century's mounting romanticization of the Scottish medieval past that the kilt craze really began. King George the IV kicked it all off by buying £1,354 worth of the Regal Stuart tartan during his 1822 visit to Edinburgh.

Great Britain 2

But expensive trinkets can't conceal Bath's sophistication. Once second only to London as the social capital of England, Queen Anne's visit to the natural hot springs here in 1701 established Bath as one of the great meeting places for 18th-century British artists, politicians, and intellectuals. Heavily bombed in World War II, Bath has been painstakingly restored so that today, too, every thoroughfare is fashionable, though more hair salons than literary salons grace its fair streets.

Leeds Castle

The English call Leeds Castle "the loveliest castle in the world,” and for good reason. Built in 857, the castle has been home to such English royalty as Edward I, Henry V and Henry VIII. Inside, visitors can see centuries-old paintings, tapestries and furniture. Outside, the grounds are often shrouded in a morning mist, which, as the day goes on, lifts to reveal exquisite gardens, vineyards and even a golf course. An aviary, set in a walled garden and overlooking the lake, houses a variety of birds, including parrots, parakeets and softbills. But the most elegant activity at Leeds Castle is the black-tie dinner in the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall, served by a butler and footmen. It’s an experience fit for a king.

Lisbon

The American Society of Travel Agents will be holding its annual conference in Lisbon this year. Some 7,000 delegates will gather in the Portuguese capital early in November. They have been invited to take part in pre-conference or post-conference tours, which will give them the chance to see the countrysides, castles and palaces, churches and historic universities, and to meet the Portuguese people. Most of the time, however, they will be in Lisbon, and their choice of a conference site was timely. Lisbon was selected Cultural Capital of Europe for all of 1994. The organizers of Lisbon ‘94 have scheduled a stellar program of opera, theater, and sightseeing.

Martinique

Close your eyes. Inhale the exotic aromas of rich dark coffee, fresh baked baguettes, and old-fashioned toasty Gauloises tobacco wafting across a small market square. You’re undoubtedly somewhere in the south, maybe close to the Riviera, where the summer heat verges on tropical, but the breezes are cool and rattle the awnings of the market stalls. Open your eyes. It’s a hilltop village on the Caribbean island of Martinique, and you’re enjoying one of those customary do-nothing, coffee and wine-sipping, people-watching interludes that the French seem to love so much.

The Land of Egypt

Egypt has always been a land of mystery and magic — a land different from all others, difficult to understand, apart and alien, yet strangely fascinating. It was the most self-contained of all the countries of the ancient world; it lived its own life, practiced its own religion, and made up its own government with hardly any outside interference either from or upon other civilizations.

Travel America Magazine: Panhandle Pleasures

By Angela Wibking

The Florida Panhandle, that narrow strip of the Sunshine State bordered by Alabama, Georgia, and the Gulf of Mexico, boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. The sand here is sugar-white, and the waters shimmer in shades of blue and green, rivaling the Caribbean. The surf is gentle, and there's no abrupt drop-off, so you can wade far out into the warm gulf waters searching for sand dollars. Fragrant pine forests, bays and lakes teeming with fish, and lazy, sand-bottomed rivers fringe the shore.

One of the most beautiful parts of the Panhandle is an area called the Beaches of South Walton. Located in Walton County, the beaches lie along Scenic 30-A, a two-lane road lined with cottages, locally owned eateries, shops, and art galleries. You won't find a chain motel or fast food restaurant anywhere along the road and no water slides, miniature golf courses, or souvenir emporiums either.

Traveller's Tales

On a quick trip back to Italy a few months ago, I managed to dine - finally – at Al Moro. The experience was not my most simpatico Italian meal. The mimeographed menu was endless, which made me nervous. Having grown accustomed to only a few, well-chosen things on offer, not all of them written down. And the waiter didn’t seemed inclined to help us navigate the more than 30 piatti del giorno , 23 fish dishes and lists of contorni. Instead, we used the signposts of a dish prepared ‘al Moro’ and confirmed that the house specialities were the better choices.

It was only by chance that we got to sample a rare, seasonal delicacy, notice of which had been squeezed onto the menu, inexplicably, next to the veal tonnato rather than with the other funghi dishes.

Credit to Minchilli, a true aficionado of Italian produce, for teaching me about ovoli: rare, egg-shaped mushrooms which have a short season in the autumn. Sliced paper thin and sautéed, they have a subtle, buttery flavor and a distinctive yellow colour.

I ordered a single serving for the table and it elevated an evening of Italian standards to a higher gastronomic plane. The ovoli were exquisite, and chances are I’ll never eat them again.

Italians know their relationship with food to be a dynamic, social adventure. But what I remember about the breakthrough scene in the film Eat, Pray, Love (which was meant to be a Valentine to Italy’s cusine), when Julia Roberts shows she has learned to order a meal in Italian, is that she sticks to the menu and uses the waiter as a messenger, not a co-conspirator and guide. It showed me she still had some way to go before she fully understood the T-shirt slogan I saw on a little boy in Monti: Life is too short not to be Italian.
