Under $100 / Europe

The Austrian capital is a great place to spend a few days exploring, no matter what time of year.

Make a leisurely start with coffee at one of the ubiquitous cafés, with Café Sperl a particularly good example (coffee and snack, $5). Walk around the exquisite imperial palaces of the museums quarter and then make your way to the Palmenhaus for a lunch.

This classy restaurant is inside a huge old greenhouse behind the Fine Art Museum, and it’s a spectacular setting for a traditional lunch. Main dishes cost around $20, but it’s worth it for the food and the setting.

After lunch, visit the Fine Art Museum ($15) for a few hours, stopping off for coffee and cake ($8) in the spectacular museum café. When you’ve had your fill of art, take a stroll around the center of town, visiting the cathedral and the opera before dropping in at Café Demel for an evening drink ($5).

For dinner, head to the classic Wratschko Gatwirschaft, an old pub with food. The short menu features classic Austrian dishes, plus the drinks are cheap and tasty ($16 for food and one drink). Stay around for a few more drinks or check out the rooftop bar at 25 Hours Hotel for amazing views over the city ($4 per drink).

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
