Need to recharge your phone?
We saw these phone chargers at the train station in Strasbourg France. You have to pedal to charge your phone, great way to pass waiting time while burning some calories. The faster you pedal the faster your phone charges.
Yes! it is a chocolate waterfall
We went to this chocolate shop in Strasbourg, France and they had these fountains of "Nutela" going. They make several flavors of chocolate spreads daily. We even saw someone come in and get their jar refilled directly from the fountain of chocolate. While there were many chocolate shops and patisseries in Strasbourg this was the only one that made fresh chocolate spreads.

Ventura Secret Beach Destination
Ventura is the gateway to Channel Islands National Park. It's a laid back beach town that doesn't get the credit its older and more established cousin Santa Barbara does. They have a great downtown area laden with bars and restaurants with great food and ambiance. The beach, harbor, and pier area are really nice with a wide pedestrian and bike trails and great rocks to stack and even driftwood to collect.
Travel with wide eyes and an open mind
