My visit to a dragon's cave and the experience of a 500-year-old "dragon slaying" in Furth-im-Wald, Germany. The robotic dragon is one of the largest self-propelled robots in the world. The pageantry is phenomenal!
A special invitation to the Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing, Bavaria, Germany. It's the second largest beer festival after Oktoberfest, the locals' best-kept secret: beer, music, food, rides and more authentically Bavarian because there are far fewer tourists!
Visit one of the biggest Biergartens in Munich, Germany. Typically Bavarian, get beer, brats, schnitzel and pretzels in the outdoor biergarten or indoor beer hall. Not far from the train station and a must-see for tourists!
Another charming stroll through Paris in the rain with photos of Le Marais, booksellers on the Seine, houseboats, Notre Dame cathedral, the Recipon Quadrigas atop the Grand Palais, and the Rue des Rosiers in the Jewish quarter - plus no shortage of old-world atmosphere.
