Carnival of Cities - 13 January 2010
Welcome to the first Carnival of Cities for 2010. Last time, the carnival was hosted by Caitlin over at Roaming Tales. This edition sports a wide range of topics from a lot of cool bloggers, many which are taking part for the first time and it's a real bumper volume today. Seeing as I live in London, I'm kicking this off with European cities.

About the carnival
Please note, the Carnival of Cities is a blog carnival for posts about any single city (or good-size town). I have excluded posts that are about general travel and I have also limited blogs to one post per carnival. The Carnival of Cities is hosted by different blogs but its permanent home is with its founder Sheila Scarborough at Family Travel Guide. If you want to take part in the next issue, see the carnival home page and submit your post on the submission page. The next carnival is on January 27 over at The Silent I.
To all the participating bloggers, thank you and don’t forget to promote this post!
