    Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Not only a place of memory, but also an open-air circus. At 8 hectares (20 acres), the octagonal Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. It is situated between the Tuileries and the Champs-Elysées. What is now a place for taking pictures with the Eiffel Tower on the horizon, as well as a reforming place for all sorts of street artists, is actually a place of great heritage.

    Three Great Relaxing Places on the River Thames

    A quick guide on a relaxing escape in London. A lot of people think of London as Babylon City of struggle. Not if you have a Plan B in mind. The city is so huge, there's always something for everyone.

    More London Square

    One of the most entertaining and panoramic squares of London. It is one of my favorite places in London. Not only because it only takes me 30 minutes to walk here, but because it's new, futuristic, contemporary, facing Tower Bridge and just next to City Hall.

    Francis Point - A Favorite Walk

    Do you have a favorite hike? Let my tell you about mine: the walk along the ocean in Francis Point Marine Park. It was established in 2001 to protect a rare piece of pristine waterfront and ecologically sensitive marine and forest habitats. It includes both a public park and an ecological reserve and therefore, only marked pathways are open to the public.

    Placerville Wineries, California

    In the fall of 2008, my family and I decided to visit two wineries in Placerville, CA. These two wineries offered a wonderful experience for everyone. They were both very accommodating, served fantastic wines, and offered beautiful surrounding views. The first winery we visited was the Boeger Winery. It was the bigger and older of the two that we visited. It had a big old building on the grounds which used to be where they processed and bottled the wines, but now it used as one their two small tasting rooms.
