    There are many different ways to define a busy airport: considering the number of flights starting from there, the number of connections it has, the amount of cargo traffic and so on.

    Here come the busiest airports in Europe, so you would know where to expect the biggest crowds and longest queues but also the most amenities and things to do. As you will see in the video below, Heathrow Airport, for instance, has got a lot to offer.

  • 5 great ethnic neighborhoods from around the world

    One of the best things about large cities is that they are not uniform, and behind every street corner you might as well find something new, something that you haven’t encountered before. And large cities tend to have little pockets of culture where people have retained their own sense of style, and sometimes language and culture. Ethnic enclaves might have started out as something else, but today they tend to be oases of color and uniqueness inside cities. Plus, they are the go-to place if you are in search of ‘authentic’ cuisine and products, as well as interesting sights. Here are 5 great ethnic neighborhoods from around the world, for travelers who want to break the monotony.

     
  • The most unusual art museums in the world

    The Louvre, the Metropolitan and the Tate are leading names in the world of art museums, and every traveler who has a soft spot for the arts should visit them in their lifetime, but sometimes you might not be in the mood to look at ‘serious’ art, and focus on the finer points of the brushwork or  sculpture. For times like these, you’re better off if you try to look on the quirky side of the art world, and stick to museums that are far from stuffy and somber, and are downright irreverent. Have a good laugh, stare with incredulity or shudder with disgust while visiting some of the most unusual art museums in the world.

    Even if you are the kind of hardened backpacker who doesn’t think twice about sleeping under the open sky, you’ve probably dreamed of sleeping in luxury hotels where you’re treated like royalty, where your room has a king-size bed, a minibar stocked with champagne, and room service that’s better than even the fanciest restaurant. If you’re willing to pay a pretty penny to stay in a place like this, or if you’re merely considering your options for when you’ll win the lottery, here are some of the most famous luxury hotels in Europe.

    If you’re a Christian, then Easter is one of the most important holidays of the year, and a perfect opportunity to spend time with friends and family either at home, or even better in a faraway place that promises fun and adventure. And even if you’re not a religious sort, Easter is a great time to get away from home and from work and get up to some traveling, since April is as good a time as ever to be on the road. But if you are planning on traveling with kids, then Easter gets a whole new meaning: Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs and sometimes even presents! Go traveling with your family on Easter, and take your kids to some of the best Easter egg hunts in the world, they’ll have the time of their lives!
