OK, for fun, thought I'd see if it was theoretically possible to do Berlin on a "backpack around as a university student of little means" as per holymadness' comment--and guess what? It apparently is! Here you go, Sherman: http://www.hostelbookers.com/hostels/germany/berlin/ A list of hostels/dorms for you to sort through if that's what you want. They don't come any cheaper than that, I imagine (ideal for university students of little means w/ a backpack, I think)....

I've heard the Euro travels relatively far in Berlin. That could be nice. Sounds great! Ah, but what are you looking for and what is your idea of "not breaking the bank" aka "cheap"? If you're thinking Berlin, why, indeed, a wonderful place. There's something...

DSLR sensors are absolutely wonderful for most purposes. Pentax K-x's 12.4 megapixel APS-C-format CMOS sensor (total pixels: 12.9 million) is sufficient for rendering 20x30 posters from an arm's length view, depending on the glass (lens), although the quality starts to drop (Note: it's...

Here are two reviews, posted by Yelpers, about a resto in Toronto. I am fond of this particular restaurant (wonderful cocktails), which has won numerous awards. Basically, it's casual refinement, and known for its...

It's like scrawny teenage guys who think they have a 6 pack because they can't gain weight and shoot up to 6'2 in, like, 4 days. Yes. It's definitely what some models -and actors/resses-do, so you very well could be...

But I could be wrong about that. Tous les Québécois/all the...
