"Welcome to TomTomi's brag pages" TomTomi's Profile

When I first discovered VT, I found that there wasn't that many info on nite life and restaurants. Lotsa general info, which can be found in all the tourist guides are available, though (respect to that!). But that's why I decided to concentrate mostly on those "wicked" travel activities. Sure, I like to see sights, but I gladly skip all the museums and other "must sees". After all, you gotta eat, and what else is there to do at night than sleep (which I can do at home;)... That's why I wanna make sure that I find the places to go to, the bars with the coldest beer and the restaurants with food without the "tourist-tax". Even though I'm a tourist myself, I don't like to see other tourists;) - I prefer locals - and since all tourists read the same guides, they're all at the same places, now aren't they?

On my pages I try to give you tips on places that are not that well known, but by locals.

Everytime I travel (at summer) I take my scooter with me. I'm still surprised to see that in most places only kids use these phenomenal gadgets for getting around!

I've saved countless of hours and sore feet by using my scooter, instead of walking. And it's fun, too. Walking up the hills in e.g. Budapest, Barcelona and Prague is good excercise, but coming down with a scooter is an adventure. Trust me!

Price is quality. Don't buy a cheap scooter!
