London, France's sixth biggest city

What is attracting a new generation of young French professionals to the city? On a wet Friday night in Hackney, a group of young professional women walk into a pub. Laughing about the British weather, they shake their umbrellas, peel off their raincoats and make their way to the bar.

Paris Notes: Hidden Paris

Having fallen in love with so much of the City of Light, this is a tough one to answer. But I will have to say that some of my most memorable destinations have been the most unusual—those that haven’t made the guide books. Some of these have given me new insights into familiar places, but many have taken me into unfamiliar territory—whether a museum, a cemetery, a park, or an entire quarter. Paris is a city of endless surprises, and walking is the best way to get to know it.

Get yourself a good map or maps. And now, some of my favorite discoveries, to take you into Hidden Paris. For all of you Claude Monet fans out there, the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée de l’Orangerie and nearby Giverny are special treats. Here’s a good “Where’s Waldo?” Reis om de Wereld.

The Red Rock walk is one of our favorite walks in Dublin, due to its easy access from the city and also because of the feeling of remoteness you get standing up on top of the cliffs looking out to sea.

The Limerick Vibe. What is the Global Vibe Movement?

The Limerick Vibe

Anywhere that the recession has hit hard, particularly in urban areas of the Western world, there are empty buildings in town and city centres. At the same time, these areas have many individuals who want to pass on their skills to help improve social wellbeing. The Limerick Vibe found a way of using these two potentials, space and people, and put them together for the benefit of the area. Since this community-based project was launched in November 2011, it has gone from strength to strength. We know it works and we know that it can work across the world. Whatever you want to call your local project, the Vibe model can be put to use internationally. We wish you great success with your project! The Global Vibe.

The Coolest Elevator in New York

My guide brought me to this totally unassuming elevator: Really, I have to show you this as I encountered it: WOW. It’s like Willy Wonka built an elevator to the land of Oz! Easily the coolest elevator I’ve ever been on in New York: Here’s a full panorama looking toward the rear of the elevator (that’s a railing beneath the mirror)… …and a reverse pan showing the front: Lining the ceiling are these great monster heads made out of mechanical bits… Each is poking through its own hole: More characters, including a king: Another character: The elevator is a last remnant from when the former Macy’s warehouse building catered to a more artsy clientele.
