    “Le Train Gourmand” reminds me “Les Arcenaulx” in Marseille (south of France) it’s basically a restaurant in a library. They serve traditional south French food. They have stuff like Bouillabaisse which is a Provençal Fish Stew, or Pieds paquets (Sheeps Pluck) or simply a Home made Tapenade with fresh bread.

    “Dans le Noir” reminds me a Pub in Germany (don’t remember the name), the employee is blind too, but they only serve drinks.

    Alcatraz is a prison restaurant in Japan. Instead of seating in your table you are seating in your cell

    I have visited Le Train Gourmand in France 2 years ago and i still remember the feeling that i had, when i entered the restaurant.
    Everything looked like they came out of an old french movie, the place was decorated with an amazing aisthetic and you could see the french elegance everywhere. The food was simply amazing, to tell you the truth i was never a fan of the french cuisine, because i had always in mind that it hadn’t any tasty, i was completely wrong if you taste the proper and well- prepared french cuisine, you will understand the whole culture of France. Simply Le Train Gourmand, is a place to visit!

    Weirdest restaurant I’ve been to is the Merton Restaurant in Taiwan. I’m wondering how it didn’t even make in to this list. All in all, the world is filled with weird places to eat, but hell, if the food is good – who cares!

    I would like to visit the DALU ROBOT restaurant in China. It would be a totally different experience. Unlike traditional restaurants where a waiter comes and serve you the food instead a robot will provide your food. I can imagine the restaurant owner might be saving lot of money on the labor.

If you’re looking for a getaway that offers more than just leisure; you might want to consider volunteering while on your holidays. Or better yet, volunteer so that you’ll have a good holiday – for free.

Volunteering during vacations is one of the fastest growing travel packages. This type of package is offered by hotels and by non-profit organizations. From local tours in the south to international travel to Africa or in Thailand, tourists can always find a package with a mission that’s close to their heart. It’s just a matter of finding it.

US based hotels are offering this type of package to tourists. There are also times wherein they invite their loyal guests to their hotels for volunteer travels for free. Hotels are usually offering volunteer trips related to the environment. If there’s a nearby chain in the area, the hotel will most likely offer the tour wit accommodation for free.

Non-profit organizations are also offering volunteering experience for a few days. Aside from local sites, they also have tie-ups to different international organizations which enable them to offer this type of experience to other countries.

If you’re being asked for a fee to volunteer, never hesitate to ask how much of the fee will go directly to the community. Sometimes organizations will just extract money from the volunteers and keep it for profit instead of giving it to the community. To be safe, work with well known non-profit organizations so that you can give back to the community without being ripped-off.
