Birmingham is England’s second largest city, and
the tourists will find a comfortable city, which is tied
to the surrounding region through the many canals,
which were dug at the time when the city was the
first proper industrial city of the world.
The industrial history is a fascinating part of
Birmingham’s identity, and in the city as well as the
in the vicinity you can get a closer look at the first
steps man took towards the efficient large-scale
industry we know today
Liverpool is, without doubt, one of England's most
exciting cities to visit. Before they visit, many already
feel that they know the city, especially the sports
scene and cultural life throughout time. The Beatles
with Paul McCartney and John Lennon as front
figures is from here, and the city is home to the two
football flagships, Liverpool F.C and Everton.
However, there is much more to Liverpool than
football and music.
Hamburg is with more than two million
inhabitants the second largest city in Germany. It
is one of the most affluent cities in Europe, a
wealth created through centuries, since its time
as member of the Hanseatic League.
Hamburg has grown as a seaport through the
years, and the maritime aspect is indeed still a
significant element today, not least in the old
revitalised harbour areas and around the lovely
The Toronto region has been inhabited through
centuries. When the icecap of the ice age withdrew,
settlers arrived from the south. These inhabitants
were alone for an extended period of time in the
area. The first Europeans arrived in the 17th
century, but many years passed from the first visit
to actual European settlements. France, which
sought to expand its colony, New France, in what
is known today as Québec, established trade
stations in the beginning of the 18th century, but
Montréal was the actual French city....

Cardiff is the capital of Wales, the incredibly
beautiful country with the many hills and mountains,
the long coast line, and the many charming cities,
which exudes the Welsh atmosphere. All these
things are not far from Cardiff, and have helped
form the historic development of Wales.
Due to the prevalence of especially coal and iron,
Wales has been one of the leading cities in the
industrialisation of Great Britain, and it has created
enormous fortunes throughout time; fortunes that
have been used for buildings in the capital....
Paris is the city of cities, the place where romance rules and evokes memories or dreams in everyone. And there is really something to get on to. Paris is one of the largest cities in Europe and the impressive dimensions can be experienced everywhere: In the Eiffel Tower, the large squares, the wide boulevards, the art collection of the Louvre, and last but not least, the fabulous Versailles where the Sun Kings lived their carefree lives during the time that lead up to the French Revolution.
Over time, the Saxon Electors have had Dresden
built as a true global city in a beautiful Baroque
style, and among the grand buildings, culture has
always blossomed. Enchanting promenades
alongside the Elbe, exciting museums and an
unforgettable Baroque-centre are some of the
things one can look forward to on a trip to

Diabetes Mellitus Alterations in glucose control and changes in insulin requirements are common problems among patients with diabetes who travel. Changes in time zone, in the amount and timing of food intake, and in physical activity demand vigilant assessment of metabolic control. The traveler with diabetes should pack medication (including a bottle of regular insulin for emergencies), insulin syringes and needles, equipment and supplies for glucose monitoring, and snacks in carryon luggage. Insulin is stable for ~3 months at room temperature but should be kept as cool as possible.
The woman was still alive as unnatural thunder cracked across the
sky. The lightning forked through the thrashing rain, stabbing at the
desert sand. Rain splashed across the dunes, running down the bank towards
the entrance of the tomb, washing over stone that had been
parched for a thousand years.
She was hardly more than a girl, her eyes betraying her fear as she
shivered in the warm rain. The priests stood either side of her, holding
her arms out from her body. Their heads were lowered - perhaps in
shame, perhaps in an effort to keep them dry....
The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully free of the trammels of precision. And he put it...

America is a fast-food nation, for better and for worse.
Consider the typical weekday. The alarm goes off
and the family’s bare feet start hitting the floor immediately.
Everyone’s probably running a little late because they didn’t
get enough sleep. (Americans sleep an average of seven hours
a night, down from nine hours a century ago.) Getting the kids
ready for school requires a Herculean effort: brushing teeth,
washing faces, and digging under the couch for overdue
library books. Time for a quick bowl of cereal? Probably not.
So you rush out the door with an empty stomach.
