Eye on the World: Manchester, England

Although the summer sun rarely made an appearance and the days were a tad too chilly (especially for our Managing Editor who has lived in Miami all of her life), the subtle beauty of Manchester shined brightly through the dreary days during a recently taken FAM trip to England. A city full of rich culture, history, museums, unique hotels, and a thriving restaurant scene, Manchester isn't the industrial town of most people's perceptions, but one with charm and sophistication—not to mention it landed a spot (No. 26) on The New York Times' list of "52 Places to Go in 2015." Here are just a few pictures she chose for Recommend's latest installment of Eye on the World.

Trinidad is an island you will fall in love with, from the mountains and unspoiled beaches to the music and humble food stalls—the fun never stops!

Eye on the World: Central Europe with Adventures By Disney

I'm still walking on air…. I've just returned from a trip to Central Europe with Adventures By Disney that took us into the clouds both figuratively and literally. The trip starts in Prague, a dynamic capital that captivates its visitors, then heads off to the Bavarian Alps, with its glorious mountainous scenery. It all wraps up in Vienna, and if you've been to this Austrian capital, you know that's quite a way to top off a tour.
