It has been three weeks since we last published our tips for festivals. This time we have carefully picked five very affordable music festivals of different genres from various pockets of the world. Do not miss the best.

Yes, it’s true that too much hand washing causes us to reduce our immunity due to loss of good bacteria that protects us.

This week we discover another university city in Austria. Linz is the third largest Austrian city with a rich history. Linz is also a place of many cultural events. Last but not the least, Linz holds the oldest cake recipe in the world, dating back in 1653 - called Linzer Torte.

Linz is a city of contrasts. Medieval architecture, places of worship, the old part of the town and the new and the modern, it is all there. At one time known more as the hometown of Hitler, especially since 2009 Linz came to be known as a city of culture when UNESCO called it the European cultural capital for that year. This city of 200,000 residents has its fair share of student population and international students at the university level.

One of the last trips that will feature an individual country will take us to Australia - the smallest continent in the world, where the distances are often greater than the distances separating the largest countries in Europe.

The country's magnificent scenery attracts millions of tourists every year.

In the next two articles we will focus on two important vitamins that, especially in winter, people too often lack.  The first of them is vitamin C. What to eat or drink in order to absorb the right quantity of this important vitamin?

Let them eat cake is what she is said to have famously spoken, condescendingly, when she was told the populace did not have bread to eat.
