The Heineken Experience


Located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Heineken Experience is a museum that celebrates the brand’s rich brewing history. The museum itself is located inside of the first Heineken brewery, which was established in 1867. I found my experience at the museum to be very positive due to the overall design of all the different exhibits as well as the interactive and communal aspects of the tour. I would recommend this tour for your next visit to Amsterdam and the best part is it’s only 18€ for several hours of fun! Read more of this post

Croque Madame’s iPads Ready For Take-Off

On my most recent jaunt through New York’s JFK Airport, something new caught my eye. Immediately, I noticed patterned wall-covering accented with bright pink edging and ambient pendant lighting in Delta’s Terminal 2. From across the terminal the space immediately stood out to me as a pleasant place to sit and relax while waiting for a flight, then as I got closer I realized something even more unique. At each and every seat within this terminal area was an iPad2, equipped with outlets and USB ports (in an airport, that’s equivalent to striking gold!). Read more of this post
