Magical Malta: Visiting Valletta

VISITING VALLETTA (nicknamed Superbissima — Most Proud) + Capital of Malta. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’re such a quaint OLD city and essentially Baroque in style and character.

They were playing Christmas music along with American top 40 (listening to Justin Bieber was a little funny in front of a […]

Vienna: Visiting the Schönbrunn Palace

I’m outside of the Schönbrunn Palace – the summer residence of the Hapsburg monarchs when they ruled. It’s got 1,441 rooms and is done in the Rococo style.

If you’re not interested in looking […]
