The Radar – the best of the travel blogosphere – is a regular feature on Intelligent Travel every Wednesday.
Here’s this week’s:
- Strasbourg has been the subject of a tug of war since ancient times. It’s been solidly on the French side of the line since World War II, but controversy persists: which museum to visit this time? @EuropeUpClose
