To see at least a fraction of what Prague has to offer in only 37 hours, you have to be really creative and plan your trip focusing on your interest. When visiting a new place I like to explore the food, see some art, get lost in the streets and finally do as much of all of the above just walking.

For the past 2 1/2 months I've been studying abroad at the University of Tokyo. Before coming here, I did a lot of research about places I should visit and how to get from one place to another. Everything I read online suggested that the best way to get around was by train.
It is true that trains in Tokyo are punctual, clean, and easily accessible (at all times, you're probably within a 10 minu..
Brunch has come to Barcelona - for better or worse. Popping up all over the city are corner cafés and sunlit, white walled, health food eateries. It’s a blessing and a curse. These restaurants don’t carry genuine Catalonian charm: their menus are in English, their instagram accounts popular, the dishes often interchangeable with ones you could expect to find in LA or NYC, their customers youn..
Because you can still starve with so many options.
1. Ruby’s Café
Open 7 days a week, breakfast, lunch and dinner, Ruby’s Café is the go-to place for an affordable, delicious, and fairly large menu. Everyone who eats there and works there is good looking, and the café itself has recently moved to a pretty, window filled space that opens out to the street in good weather.
12:00pm—The L Word (see: Levantine) @Kanaan (veg.)
Kanaan boasts the best hummus in town ($5) and counts Moroccans, Israelis, Palestinians, Syrians and Jordanians among its diverse ranks. Two words: Malawach Sabich ($8). Two more words: to share. This giant Yemeni puff-pastry is topped with layers of hummus, tahini, roasted aubergine, boiled egg and sprinkled with fresh herbs. It’s li..
Seattleites hate large, multinational, fast food enterprises; what you might normally think of as ‘chains’. In the spirit of this food-conscious, environmentally friendly city, Seattle has a lot of its own, unique, food franchises - a network of local food producers and restaurants that you won’t find anywhere else.

Prague likes its coffee...but not just any coffee. From cappuccinos with just the right density of foam decorated by creative artwork (beating your standard ‘stripey heart’) to variations on frappe and frapuccino, local coffee shops feature caffeinated beverages of all kinds. Often the cafés also boast selections of homemade pastries, snacks or meals, and sometimes even a proper micro-roastin..
Location: Jardin de Tuileries (side closer to Le Louvre is calmer)
When: ideally around sunset, but really anytime
What to get: Bottle of red wine (recommended: Côtes du Rhone); cornichons (stick with the franprix brand, it’s like 365 in Whole Foods - comparable to branded stuff but saves you money); gruyère cheese; tomatoes; pyramide de chèvre; crêpe fromage with freshly ground bl..
