Jerusalem: the Old City must-see

Ever wondered about visiting Israel? The holy land, as it is commonly labelled in predominantly Christian Europe, plays a major role in Islam and Judaism as well.

Best Places to Eat in Waco, Texas

If you had told me that Waco, Texas, USA was going to be a hit tourist destination when I moved there at the beginning of my freshman year at Baylor University, I would have laughed in your face.
