... situated in the former 'Old England' Department Store which is delightfully Art Nouveau in style. Pete opts for coffee in their cafe on the rooftop, while I enjoy too short a time in this fabulous interactive museum.

With the European Union, frontier checkpoints are a thing of the past and if you blink, you'll miss the small signs informing you of your arrival in such-and-such country. My phone, however, provided a little reminder. Friendly, helpful Verizon sent 3 texts politely welcoming us to whatever country we'd entered, explaining my data and calling plans, and telling how to call back to the US. ...
