Hungry for weekend conversation starters?

Grab a plate! We’ve got a real smorgasboard for you this week. 

You’ll meet Napoleon Bonaparte’s living heir, and jump the fence of King Zog’s abandoned Long Island mansion.

If you’re feeling thrifty, take a look at what you could have done with all the broken appliances you’ve thrown out over the years, and be inspired by the guy who collects  forgotten snapshots on the black market

Last but not least, need a soundtrack for the weekend?Let me take you to Paris with my favourite playlist, made by yours truly. 

Bon weekend!
