Review of Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong


Unbeatable location, top facilities, flawless service

For our first visit to the absolutely stunning city of Hong Kong my husband and I chose the Four Seasons Hotel, a favorite hotel chain of us.

Review of Restaurant Bodega El Pato, Olten/Switzerland


Spanish food in a rustic ambiance

Bodega in the old town of Olten has tapas and a small choice of other Spanish food on offer. Although this eatery is not new in town, my husband and I had not managed to eat there until this year.
