How to Prague? (Food & Travel Guide)

Your Last Minute Food & Travel Guide to Prague, Czech Republic

How-to-Prague-Travel-Guide

Prague is a city with stunning preserved historical architecture known for its Prague Castle that’s the largest castle complex in the world and the pedestrian Charles Bridge that crosses the Vltava river, with statues of important people in the history of the city.

We spent about 6 days exploring the city after attending Travel Blogger Exchange in Ostrava. We can’t find a guide that explains the food scene and how to’s of navigating the city and discerning what’s touristy and what’s local. Most of the information is from backpackers and bucket list travellers who just want to check  the city off their list.

Girona: Game of Thrones Film Location Guide!

Are you a GoT fan coming to Girona, Spain?

I was touring Barcelona at that time, when I had a geek out moment, as I found out one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones was just 30-minutes away from me! Braavos, Oldtown, and Kings Landing! If these places are familiar, then the historic medieval city of Girona might be worth a quick train ride away!

Girona, Spain is located 98 km from Barcelona near the border of France. You’ll see why the well-preserved historical city with its winding alleys, arches, towers and city walls makes it a perfect location for the HBO hit series.

Here’s my DIY travel guide from Barcelona to Girona…

My Miele Votes

My Miele Guide votes
” The Miele Guide will be Asia’s first truly independent regional restaurant guide when launched in October 2008, and also its most authoritative—we do not accept free meals or advertising from restaurants. Written by food lovers who know and love Asia, The Miele Guide will rank and profile restaurants across the region’s major cities, categorised by country, city and cuisine, in a slim, indispensable volume. ” (www.mieleguide.com)

The Miele Guide is now in their second phase where the public can vote their best restaurants this month May 2008. I don’t really believe that Miele Guide is 100% independent because they are sponsored by Visa and Hyatt Hotels. In order for you to vote, you need to key in your Visa card. I’m sure Visa and Hyatt would have a say on the judges, restaurant critics and respected foodies who would vote in the other phases. In any case, I participated in the online voting and I had to make sure that Claude Tayag’s Bale Dutung and Chef Chris Locher’s C Italian Dining are included in the list.

I’m campaigning for the top 3 finest restaurants in the Philippines. (You are only allowed to vote for 3 restaurants per country)

Antonio-1
Antonio’s Restaurant in Tagaytay

Bale Dutung - 50
Claude Tayag’s Bale Dutung in Pampanga

C Italian Dining-20

Please VOTE for them to be included in the MieleGuide.com !
