The world through a lens

I have created this webpage to test some new features in web development, to have kind of a scrapbook and to provide information and help other people, if they are going to a foreign city or country.

Thanks to my job I see sometimes cities and places which are not that popular and recommended. Nevertheless I wanna see their places of interests and do some sightseeing. Sometimes it's hard to find information and therefore I share my experience on this website.

I experienced actually everything by myself or rely on experience of trustworthy friends and collegues and didn't get paid for articles or opinions. Afilliate links are marked with a *, nevertheless they didn't influence my opinion about the product or location.

If something is not clear or outdated, please let me know about that.
