I know that Labin is not famous or big, but it's very quaint and historical small place...and it's my hometown! If you ever come visit this place It'll be my joy to give you a guided tour and tell you all about the legends and stories of this town :D
I trekked this circuit last year and was blown away by all the different views I encountered. I especially liked the hand painted trucks that belched out clouds of smoke as they weaved amongst the goats and struggled up the Himalayan roads.
From the palace the streets go out like rays through the houses and the huge forest- that is why Karlsruhe is also called "the fan city". The sights are from 18th century onwards. It's a little piece of heaven where you can be in touch with nature, feel like royalty in the royal garden, and still be in a very contemporary city.
The outdoor food markets of the Netherlands are what I miss most when I am abroad. Tourists are lured to awful places and never seem to make it to the real thing. So I thought I should show you a few - and the best Dutch Treat to have when you get there ;)
Some of my favorites places to do, to see and to taste. Start at the windmills in Zuid Holland (since 1740), Tulips (since 1593), Lakenvelder cow (since 12th century), and go on until you end at the ice cream store Talimini in Zutphen (now).
