It depends - if you already have some money put away for a cash/savings buffer, and therefore have a longish investment horizon, I'd put all of it into index funds - disttributed across different types of markets. If IRA type accounts are available in Canada, I'd use those first. Besides the real estate plan, you may also want to evaluate what your personal goals are - do you need to put away money for completing college, and things of that nature.

If the location is fine with you, Altstadt is a very good choice - I realize I was damning it with faint praise in my previous post.

I found Altstadt a little further from the center of things than I liked (I went with an infant in January, so wanted something very close). I've had good luck with Hotel Am Schubertring - good cafe across the road too. I've also heard good things about Hotel Konig von Ungarn, but haven't stayed there myself.

Sorry - that was actually a Lincoln Zephyr cabriolet....I'm thinking of the yellow car from "The Seven Crystal Balls" I do remember a Lancia Aurelia in one, though. Edit: Did some more digging: the Lancia is in "The Calculus Affair" Here is an interesting...

There was book published a few years ago that tracked down the things that inspired Herge, with lots of pictures from the Tintin books next to photographs of the real life inspiration. I have this - "Tintin - A Complete Companion" by Michael Farr. Lovely book. My first Tintin was "Cigars of the...
