Around Trier in less than 2 Minutes!

For some reason, German language books for foreign students are obsessed with Trier.

Continuing the sunny post from last week about Key West, today I would like to recommend a few places you won´t regret to visit for a bite (or two) while in the island!

Some pretty cool Disney Restaurants!

Every trip to Disney World is different. My first vacation there was all about the attractions and the characters. Food was just something I had to eat really fast in between attractions to keep me alive and running around. But things definitely started to change from my third visit on.  Isn´t it interesting how the older you get, the higher you score food in your list of priorities? Food starts to, actually, be a synonym for “fun”. And nobody does “fun” as good as Disney, right?!
