No neon lights. No signages. Unmarked. There are places like these but they are among the best shops, restaurants, and bars. If you are having a Berlin holiday, you just need to do a little research if you want to spend the best time in Berlin like the locals do.

Here are some of the best spots that you must not missed:

Sammlung Boros

This is a war bunker that dates back to the time of the Nazis turned into an art house by Christian Boros and his wife. They collect modern art and has been doing a guided tour of the place for several years now. If you want to checkout their collection, you need to book online way in advance. Viewing is only held every Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

As we keep ourselves busy trying to earn some money to pay bills and live a comfortable life, and we get a few days of break in a year. We enjoy these days off away from everything but we tend to spend a lot and burn a big hole into our savings account. There are simple ways though to get our dream holiday way cheaper than normal:

Save money when booking your flight

Applying the right strategy when buying your plane tickets will save you a lot of hard earned cash. It is best to take a flight midweek when the airfare is cheapest. Surveys show that the cheapest day to purchase your ticket is on Tuesdays.

If you are flying with another person, split the purchase when shopping for tickets. When you do this, the system will not consider the seats together and you might actually shave off some amount on the fare.

Montreal storm

Hmmm. A Montreal vacation. Sounds kind of appealing, huh? Think about it. It’s an absolutely gorgeous

area. If you were able to take a Montreal vacation in the winter, it’s supposed to be the perfect winter wonderland. But if you can’t get there in winter, the spring and summer seasons are just as beautiful…without the snow and cold, of course.

Regardless of which season you decide to vacation in Montreal, there is so much to see and do. Such as Chateau Terrace. If you go here, you will get a fantastic view of Mont Royal and then be able to enjoy yourself in the Chateau’s café and shops afterward. It’s a simple walk from downtown and a great way to pass the time.

You are gone away from home since a long time. You started dreaming about sex, you know,it happens.

And now you live in an overcrowded hostel, are in the middle of a party, drunk something and found a partner which is also in the mood for sex. What comes next is easy to guess, but there are some other questions to be answered: where.

First of all, stay cool and do not forget the condoms, they must be somewhere, dammit! For finding an appropriate place, try the following:

-in any hostel are some secret places, but you may not ask the crew about them, unless your partner is one of the house.

-go away from the hostel, maybe you can find a park, a beach or a bunch of trees not very far

-check the laundry room

-check the bathroom and the shower

If it’s your first time in Amsterdam, it’s always safe to take the classic tours: a stroll around the outdoor flower market, the canal rides, and a visit to all of the city’s popular museums. However, if this is your fourth or fifth time in Amsterdam, you might want to try something new—and there are a lot of other attractions you should see. They’re just not as widely commercialized.

Below are the best offbeat Amsterdam destinations you shouldn’t miss out on.

Accommodations

You might want to steer clear of popular hotels especially if you’re visiting Amsterdam during the peak season. Alternative accommodations include houseboats, hotels, hostels, and renovated houses located along the canals. One hotel in the city, though, offers an offbeat enough experience. The Ambassade Hotel comprises 10 seventeenth century houses built along the canal. This means that you’ll be living at the city’s historical center.

First time to fly? Avoid getting the ire of those intimidating business people who fly back and forth several cities on a monthly basis. With these helpful tips from travel enthusiast, you too can take to the skies like a seasoned jetsetter.

Air Travel

Avoid excess baggage

Again, how do business travelers manage to fly out with just one briefcase or the smallest carry on fit for normal travel behavior? It’s not even about how short their business vacation is, since most of them do fly out for an entire week. It’s all in the art of professional packing—you bring only the basics and buy what you need when you get to your destination. Moreover, follow airline instructions and restrictions about liquids, baggage size and weight, and other reminders to avoid paying extra at the gates, which causes unnecessary stress not only to you but your fellow boarders as well.
