Madrid Free Attractions and Cheap Food

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Museo Del Jambon in Madrid, or as the crews calls it, Museum of Ham, is the cheapest restaurant we have found. A 10 ounce beer is.7 Euro and a sandwich is .5 Euro. But the cheapest deal is 9 Euro for a Pichure of Sangria, a pitcher of beer, and four taps plates. This is enough for four people. It is an incredible deal for Europe, let alone Spain. NonRev would like to that for this great tip. See more about Madrid deals Madrid NonRev Page.

For those of you who want American fast food in Madrid, Burger King has a happy meal for you. They serve 12 ounce beers in their establishment that cost 2 Euro and can be substituted in the value meal. The only problem is you can’t supersize it. See more about Madrid deals Madrid NonRev Page.

Victory in Europe WWII

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

On May 8th, 1945, World War II ended in Europe. If you are wondering where to go, Manchester might be a great choice to discover how the war was won. There you will find the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. They have the first Computer with an electronic memory designed by one of the geniuses that broke the Nazi Enigma code, Alan Turing. Every Tuesday, they fire it up and demonstrate how it works. This would be fascinating enough, but the college students who worked with Alan Turing building this incredible machine are there running it. Not only can you get first hand information on how it was designed, but you can find out about the man who was the genius at England’s best kept secret, Bletchly Park.

To see a video of how the machine works, watch this nonrev video. To see more free things to do in Manchester, go to Nonrev Manchester Blog.

Not only does the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry have computers, it has airplanes too. From the Japanese suicide rocket airplane, and the Cherry Blossom, to the Avro Shackelton, the successor to the Lancaster. On Tuesdays, veterans of the Royal Air Force man the museum to explain the collection to visitors. This is another great opportunity to talk to those who made military history. We even go a tour of the inside of the aircraft, see Nonrev Video. To see more deals like these, go to Nonrev Manchester.

The Pedestrian Bridge in the last episode of “Sex and the City.”

Guys, here’s a big hint. Women love “Sex and the City.” If you want to impress her, go right to where ‘Mr. Big’ committed to Carrie. The place is a bridge that is called Pont des Arts, or the Pedestrian Bridge and crosses the river to the Louvre. The thing that even the biggest fans of the series don’t know……. Lovers go to this bridge with a padlock and its 2 keys, write their names on the lock, and lock it to the bridge. Each takes one of the keys and throws it into the river symbolizing their love for each other. Do this and she will never forget it or you!. Check out the video at: .


Moulin Rouge

There is the movie ‘Moulin Rouge’ about tragic and romantic love, and then there is the famous cabaret Moulin Rouge which still exists and is located here in Paris.  The famous “Can-Can” was first performed and continues to be performed at the Moulin Rouge. There is more to the show than the “Can-Can”!  Make sure you get tickets early because this is a very popular spot. They do have topless costumes so don’t be too surprised.

Save Money, Top 10 Free Attractions in Athens

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Athens is the cradle of Democracy and all free people. In honor of these ideas being free, listed are some of the top Free Attractions in Athens. To see all the attractions, go to the NonRev Athens Page.


Athens has some great architecture, but one area is frozen in time. The Plaka has strict zoning laws which forbid any modern architecture so it appears as though it is 19th Century Greece. This area has hardly any cars, and is one of the most picturesque places in Greece. Definitely worth wandering around for a while. To see details on free attractions in Greece, go to the Things to do in Athens Section.  


All Men are by Nature Equal…

‘All men are by nature equal, made all of the same earth by one Workman; and however we deceive ourselves, as dear unto God is the poor peasant as the mighty prince.This quote was first said in Plato’s Academy by the master of Philosophy himself. Where would we all be if he did not have the wisdom and courage to say these words? Plato’s Academy is still accessible to the public, and it is FREE.  Plato himself would have wanted this way. The fact that ideas are free is proof enough. To see details on free attractions in Greece, go to the Things to do in Athens Section.    


Best Gyros…According to the Greek Prime Minister

I didn’t believe this myself until I went there. I heard the Prime Minister and his followers go to Spiros Bairaktaris. When I found the place I asked a waiter. He pointed to a group and said that was the Prime Ministers Brother, and he has holding court. The price of a Gyro to go was around 1.7 Euro. It was very large and good enough for a meal. If you sit down, the cost is higher. To find more information, go to the NonRev Snacks in Greece section.

Where The Revolutionary War Started
‘Don’t shoot until you see the white’s of their eyes’! Sound familiar? It is attributed to The Battle at Bunker Hill. A giant monolith, the Bunker Hill Monument and Museum is dedicated to those who stood up to fight tyranny and free all mankind from the chains of monarchy. It is an obelisk, like the Washington Monument, because the founders of the US believed it should be patterned after Ancient Greece and Rome. This is why the US calls itself a Republic.

Escape the Snow in St. Lucia

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

This winter I tried out an all inclusive hotel for our family vacation in St Lucia. Unfortunatly we were to leave one Snow-mageddon when the airlines cancelled all their flights. We got to St. Lucia, saw the sites, and enjoyed the sun This is how we did it in the worst snowstorm of the century.

Febuary 2nd was the day of the worst snowstorm Chicago had seen in years. It was so bad the airlines shut almost all operation for that day. Luckily for my family, we were able to leave a day early. We purchased tickets on an airline instead of nonreving which is something many of us in the airlines are doing. The increase in taxes on our passes, blackout days, and extremely high load factors make it much more economical to buy tickets. But as I say, don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself at our Timetable

Our layover was in Miami so I called the Sheraton at the Miami Airport. I was able to get an airline discount on the room AND the staff was happy to drive us downtown to get a bite to eat. They were one of the best hotel staff I had the pleasure of meeting. The Hotel Staff suggested my family try Chilorio’s which is a great Mexican restaurant. It was very low key but the food and service was excellent. They also had free wifi so I was able to look up information for the next day of travel.

The Coconut Lodge has several crews that Layover and their crew rates are much lower than you could find on sites like Perx. The lodge has another great attribute, the is a family side and a couples side. The Family side has all you could want to entertain children from the standard zero depth pool to a “lazy river’, a water slide, and a kids club. The couples side had its own pool, spa and beach. Every night there was live entertainment from a steel drum band to a magician. There was also a talent night for guest and staff. There never was a night that there wasn’t anything to do. Even though the resort is on the southern tip of the island, removed from the towns, we didn’t feel the need to go into the town.

Volcano and Mud Bath for what ails you.

One of the places we did go to was the Volcano. Not only is it active, put there is a mineral bath that you can visit. The mineral bath is said to be able to relieve everything from arthritis to sunburn. It is also marketed as a mud bath that will make you look 10 years younger. The bath is heated by the volcano and the mud is actually volcanic ash. I met a man from Germany who said he spends his winters in St. Lucia and goes to the bath once a week. He swears by the bath and said his doctor can’t believe his improvement. Whether he was a plant or not I don’t know but I thought is was fun to visit.

Botanical Gardens

The other place we visited was the Botanical Gardens. Not only was there beautiful flowers, but a waterfall. There is also a mineral bath from another volcano. This bath boasts the Napoleon’s wife Josephine came her to bathe in the mineral water.

St. Lucia is a great place to go to avoid the cold and the snow. Now it is even more affordable with an all inclusive hotel that gives discounts to airline employees. The biggest problem now is how do you get there?  Use these tips to get the most out of your stay. To see more deals from around the world, go to
