St. Davids is a holiday beach town located just inland of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It has some interesting sites, markets, and restaurants. But one doesn’t need to spend more than a week here.
We enjoyed our stay in Abergavenny, Wales, but we have to admit that it wasn’t the highlight of the trip we anticipated. Neither the Swanmeadow Holiday Cottages at Pantygoitre Farm nor Abergavenny itself lived up to our expectations.
In early 2014 Team Mago had the opportunity to tour European battlefields and memorials. In honor of Memorial Day, we’ve posted some photos from Belleau Wood and a video that we think you’ll enjoy.
This summer Team Mago is coming out with a City of Portland IOS app. Yes, it’s really happening. In anticipation of this grand release, we are publishing the first itinerary “Getting to Know Portland” on MagoGuide.net.
In this first itinerary, we talk about the ins-and-outs of Portland streets and neighborhoods, all about the public transportation system, the craft beer, the cannabis culture, and more. Check it out and let us know what you think.
The Oregon Zoo… The places where the animals are kept were small, benches for comfortable viewing were non existent, and worse of all, the animals seemed despondent and in many cases scruffy. There are plenty of other things to do in Portland. So unless you have kids to entertain and educate, we would suggest skipping the zoo.
Roberto Piccione is a professional tour guide for all of Italy and provides WWII battlefield tours in Sicily. He has one website in excellent English giving out helpful information (Impavudis.it) and has another in the works. We highly recommend that you give him a call if you’re interested in seeing some interesting WWII on the island.
To be frank, Morgan is appalled by The New York Times Travel Section’s coverage of World War I’s centennial. Not only have their articles failed to do 1914 justice, but they’re full of hyperbole.
In this post, Morgan sets the record straight while taking you along on our tour of Belleau Wood, the Chateau-Thierry American Monument, the Aisle-Marne American Cemetery, the Bulldog Fountain, and the German Military Cemetery near Belleau.
It’s fascinating history, touring, and photos. The New York Times may never forgive us.

Sant Pau Hospital in Barcelona, a Modernista’s dream, was a medical complex was built between 1901 and 1930 designed by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
Here is a map with a list of all our favorite places in France and Belgium including the battlefield sites we visited in 2014.
