Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am planning a trip to Europe soon to some of the following places: london, paris, marseille, barcelona, madrid, florence, venice, salzburg, vienna and budapest. Have any of you been to these places? What were your favorite things to do and see there?

A: Dear world traveler,
A lot of us have traveled and have notes in the archives. I would recommend Board Question #11552 and Board Question #4729 in particular. Both of those cover a little bit of all the places you want to see. Have fun!
A: Dear World Traveler,

If you like books, and you should, Paris has my favorite bookstore in the whole world. It's called "Shakespeare & Co." and you can find it in the Latin Quarter, on the Left Bank opposite Notre Dame. It is too marvelous to even be described here, but the curious can find out all about it at their website. Do make an effort, at least.
