Berlin’s Pyronale

Do you like fireworks? If you do, then you may have to check out Germany’s ultimate celebration of pyro-technics. European countries are known for their love of fireworks on New Year’s Eve, or any anniversary celebration, in fact. Fireworks are more accepted as a casual pastime in Europe than they are in the United States. That said, there is nothing like the unbridled celebration that is the Berlin Pyronale.

Best Souvenirs to Buy in Galicia

The Spanish region of Galicia sets itself apart for many reasons, like its vistas of the Atlantic from its perch in northwestern Spain right above Portugal. Its cliffs of Cape Finisterre are the end of the world or were thought to be by the Romans. The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail runs through this region, as well. The landscape is beyond comparison as is the food.
