r meeting new people at a conference, are you ever struggling for what to say? It's a two-hour e-bike experience which costs $6999 but will solve that problem nicely! Aside from exploring the city, you can learn about its history and culture and take cool photographs. A helmet, bottled water, and rider training are provided at 506 Walsh St. Despite that, the organizers insist that if you can ride a push bike, you should be fine riding an e-bike as well.

Here's the perfect antidote to Sixth Street's noise and intensity. Dedicated to the patron saint of music and poetry, Hotel Saint Cecilia has 14 rooms. With google and secluded location, the five-star hotel is situated less than a mile away from Austin Convention Center. An outdoor swimming pool is available to guests, as well as free bikes and free Wi-Fi. The rooms all have a pool view, a private bathroom, a desk, and some even have river views.

2. UXDX EMEA, Dublin
UI (user interface) and UX (user experience) are well known, but what is UXDX? In modern digital design, UXDX refers to the relationship between UX Design and DevOps, which stands for developer experience.

A UXDX conference, held in Dublin and online this year, will present the latest product, user experience, design and developer practices from leading companies through case studies that explain challenges and successes. As a result, you'll gain T-shaped skills and learn the techniques modern digital teams use. On 12-14 October, everything takes place at the Royal Dublin Society.

Beyond the exhibition
With its focus on the Irish diaspora, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum has been voted Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction at the 2019, 2020 and 2021 World Travel Awards. The brilliantly designed museum aims to make Irish history more than a list of names and dates. In addition to video galleries and motion sensor quizzes, the exhibit offers interactive exhibits for visitors to interact with. The museum is located at Custom House Quay, North Dock, Dublin 1, and it takes between one and two hours to visit.

In the vibrant Dublin 2 area, Las Tapas de Lola serves Spanish tapas, wines, beers, and tasty sangria at 12 Wexford Street. This restaurant was founded by native Barcelonan Anna and local girl Vanessa, who both are passionate about providing a high-quality, authentic dining experience. It's not about haute cuisine or flashy interiors, they claim. The idea is to create a relaxing and comfortable environment so people can feel at home and enjoy their meals. Thursday - 10:30pm, Friday - 11pm, Saturday - 11:30pm and Sunday - 10:30pm. The effort will be worth it, but you will need to book ahead.

This beautifully designed hotel offers all herringbone floors and wooden ceilings as well as original paintings. But that's not all. Aside from 40 cosy modern rooms, the hotel also boasts a top-rated rooftop restaurant, a luxury cinema, and a cocktail bar with an Americana theme. This property is located at 117-119 Ranelagh, Dublin 6, a trendy neighborhood south of the city's center. There are trams that run about five minutes from Temple Bar, but it takes 45 minutes to walk or take a tram.

3. Adobe Max
Among the most important gatherings of creatives worldwide is Adobe Max. Featuring both software-focused demos, sneak peeks, skill-building sessions and talks by some of the planet's leading creatives, it's a truly unique mix of software reveals, sneak peeks and conversations.

The conference returns to Los Angeles in 2022 after being forced online during 2020-1. The conference runs from 18-20 October with a pre-conference on 16-17 October. On the website, you can watch free videos from last year's virtual event.

Beyond the exhibition
Without sounding repetitive, The Broad is well worth a visit just for its interior design. You'll also find Frank Gehry's iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall next door, so you'll get a two-fer in terms of architectural wonder. There are over 120000 square feet of exhibit space filled with everything from Warhol's and Koonz's work to cutting-edge artists. Currently, it's Yayoi Kusama's immersive installation Infinity Mirrored Room that's a highlight: a mirrored room with LED lights you can physically enter for up to one minute. It is important to note, however, that timed tickets and general admission are free, but you must book in advance.

Mexican food and drinks have made El Compadre in Hollywood a staple for Southern Californians since 1975. The property, which is located at 7408 Sunset Blvd, has wrought iron lanterns, clay roof tiles, and stained glass chandeliers that give it the look and feel of an old-world hacienda. Live music is played nightly by a trio singing Mexican classics, the lighting is dim and the place has a separate bar area serving cocktails and imported and domestic drinks. The Compadre is open Monday through Thursday from 11am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday from 11pm to 9pm, and Sunday from 9am to 9pm.
