The Uncornered Market on Five Berlin Favorites

Meet Dan and Audrey, the husband and wife team who have been “measuring the Earth” by way of sixty-five countries in over four years. They’re adventurers with a love of street food (guinea pig excluded), traveling by public transport (yes, even chicken buses) and meeting people from all walks of life all over the world. They’re accustomed to wearing many hats, often shedding their dusty traveling clothes for professional presentations, conferences and projects.

10 Cool Outdoor Cinemas Around the World

Watching a movie on a big screen al fresco ranks among our most memorable travel experiences. We’ve watched films under the night sky and stars in Munich, Paris and Denver — each experience was unique in its setting and cultural flavor. All three were festive outings that included friends, picnics and wine. Unfortunately, there aren’t an abundance of outdoor cinemas around the world (maybe this will change over the years), but below is a list of ten that are just beginning to launch their summer screenings (note that locations in Australia, which offers several outdoor cinemas, are not included as their summer season is over). Have you watched a movie at any of the open-air cinemas below or elsewhere? 1.

11 Unforgettable Hotel Bars Around the World

The NileGuide features eleven of the world’s most unique hotel bars (stunning photos included). Seriously, these are not your everyday pubs. Hotel La Purificadora’s roof top bar in Puebla, Mexico: “One of the hotel’s most impressive features is its roof top bar which runs parallel to a long glass-walled swimming pool.” The Salt Hotel’s bar in the Uyani Salt Flats, Bolivia: “Even the bar area is built with the practicality of salt in mind. The stools, tables, chairs, benches, etc. are all fashioned out of the surprisingly useful building material…one important rule, ‘Please Don’t Lick The Walls!’” The Fairmont’s Tonga Room in San Francisco, California: “Unexpected sprinkler-produced “rainstorms” shower into the pool with booming thunder and lightening every few minutes, and the dance floor is made from the planks of the SS Forester, one of the last schooners that sailed between San Francisco and the South Seas.” Cellar Bar at the Bryant Park Hotel in New York City: “If the word “cellar” conjures up images of cold, dark, underground rooms, you’re not alone. But, Cellar Bar, with its vaulted, gray brick-facade ceiling, wrought-iron candelabra chandeliers, and blood-red bar backdrop, puts a sexy spin on the underground.” ICEHOTEL’s Absolut ICEBAR in

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome aboard the airplane. Your flight attendant today is the zany, the glitzy, and the outlandish Pam Ann. She may fail to give you the right safety instructions or bring you that Bloody Mary, but if you’re up for some laughs, sit back and enjoy the ride! Pam Ann, née Caroline Reid, is a well-loved comedian who poses as a fictitious flight attendant regaling her audience with the vulgarities and quirks of airline travel. Her subjects of parody include airline crews, travelers, and the laughably absurd shenanigans that arise within the confines of a plane’s cabin. Pam’s stand-up routines are in high demand anywhere airplanes fly, which means she pretty much travels around the globe. Below, she shares some of her travel tips. Is there a gadget you can’t live without? I can’t live without my Blackberry; it is very addictive. When you travel, what is the one item you always take with you? Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. Great for long haul flights. What are you listening to your on your iPod these days? Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” What is your favorite city in the world and why?
