Mozartkugel (Mozart rounds) are very popular for tourists - you can buy them almost everywhere - but unfortunately they are not cheap. On the official page you can find a link to an online shop and I don’t think the prices will be much lower than that at the airport or in downtown Vienna. A box of 18 pieces costs around €8; that was also the price I paid in ...

If you travel to the major cities, like Marakech, Fes, Casablanca and Rabat, you will barely notice any change. But in smaller towns, there is a huge impact of Ramadan on the population. Tourists restaurants, cafés and shops will still be open as normal, transportation is available as normal, and all tourits attraction will be open until like 16h00. Only ...

Easily enough if you go to local pubs, and stay in b&bs. Every town will usually have them, and often with live music in the pubs at night. They're usually friendly, fun, and serve good food. Source: have been to Ireland twice, first time spent a week travelling around and eating only in pubs, and the occasional bed & breakfast or hostel that ...

In general, if you're in a place that also sells drinks and you're using vouchers, etc then tip as you would if you'd paid. So a dollar or two per drink depending on price and place. Same goes for discounts and other freebies like a 2 for 1 deal -- although you could choose to tip more up front. Obviously if the staff just decide to give you a freebie then ...

Just to complete the answers: Can I exit the palace and then re-enter after purchasing my food? No, at least it was not possible when I last went there (September 2014). The reason is most likely because it is not possible to verify that the same person who is leaving is the person coming back. Tickets are not registered to a given name (otherwise, ...

The answer is: The price is actually not that different. I travelled most of the European countries and mostly lived from food and drinks bought in local supermarkets. If you know where to buy, water isn't expensive in any european country. For example, in Germany you get a 0,5 l bottle of water for less than 15 cents (plus deposit of 25 cents). Actually, ...

I am not aware of such difference in price for bottled water. I haven't been in Greece yet, but in most European countries I bought bottles of water for less then 50 ct per liter. That is in local supermarkets. Could it be that you are comparing prices in bars and restaurants? Usually tap water is of high quality. In France for example, you can order still ...

Gayot Fow's answer is very much correct, the white picnic is worth the trip. You have several possibilities for a picnic on a normal day. The first one is where everyone goes, particularly tourists - namely around the Grand Canal. I would not say that you need to "reserve" your spot but some places get crowded. There is another place, where locals tend ...

Of course you can picnic at Versailles, it's de rigueur; in the gardens behind the palace that is (not inside). In the summer the only problem is finding a suitable spot because the competition from other people having a picnic can be quite keen. Pick your spot early and lay a blanket down to 'reserve' it as soon as you arrive in the morning. Europeans ...

One option which hasn't been mentioned is the public BBQ's that are common in Australian parks. For example Brisbane has 490 parks with public BBQ's.

If you are traveling to US, back from India, please be aware that the CBP ( Customs & Border Protection ) is very strict about seeds. Yes some of them are just spice, but Cardamom & Pepper are considered seeds and if the find these out in your luggage, be ready to shell out $300+ as fine, and losing the stuff. Happened to me, but the officer was kind ...
