Tips for trips
Our trip to see the famous tulou 土楼 was great. A strange van appeared and it was not strange after all. Chinese tourists stepped in and we stepped in as well because they said that the last bus had just left and the van driver would give us better price.
After couple of week we spent in Iran now we travel thousands of kilometers westwards, to Senegal, a small African country on the Atlantic Ocean shore.
Do you enjoy adventure, Czech history, and gorgeous and charming nature? Then let me invite you dense forests of Krivoklat around the Berounka river where once important castle Tyrov used to be. The land fulfills my idea about heaven on earth in any given season of the year.
Once again, we visited Turcianska Garden on our journeys in Slovakia. This time we chose to see Slovakia’s most beautiful valley – Gaderska Valley.
Southeast of Zlin is located a small town of Valasske Klouboky through which flows the river of Kloboucka (Brumlovka). The town is surrounded with the White Carpathians and the Vizovicke Hills. We have heard there is a number of interesting experiences in the town. Therefore, we decided to see it for ourselves.
Jeeps were great. First, we were just roaming on the road for half an hour and then headed to the desert. We released some air from the tires so the car wouldn’t jump so much. In a moments notice we were driving down the dunes like we were skiing and not sitting in the car. On dunes’ edges and then up and steeply down… Another dune even higher than the last one.
After while, during our search for tulou 土楼 we went off the tourist-luring village with never ending music. Chinese tourists took pictures of each other wearing traditional and nontraditional clothes rented for horrible money. All of a sudden, everything went quiet around us. We were approaching local hills on a narrow road.
We leave Kashan only to move 200 km south to our last stop in Iran - Isfahan.
Once upon a time there was an Asian kingdom. A small state on the slopes of the Himalayas surrounded by China from the north and India from the south. Wild nature with many undiscovered animal and flora species, and couple of hundreds of thousands inhabitants living modestly according to ancient traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, in harmony with the surroundings and themselves.
Beautiful summer days are the best to visit the picturesque town of Rust at the bank of Neusiedler See (Fert lake in Hungarian).
After a short break yet again we went for a walk the Small Carpathian Mountains. This time we visited Hlbocianska valley near he town of Smolenice.
I am already looking to see the oasis. It is surrounded with a wall. Inside is the whole irrigation system – concrete channels. The place has high date palm. More than 120 palm species are in the Emirates, only 20 of them, however, have edible fruits. Their fruits are used often as animal fodder.
Our stay in Yunyongyao云永谣 commenced with a funeral, not particularly traditional way to begin one’s trip. Most of the locals took part in it. Some right in the procession, others just watched from afar. Soon, however, cracking and music ended. Only streets covered with red papers could tell the story.
In our today’s journey across Iran we go off Tehran’s limits to see another famous city in this country - Kashan.
Originally Slavic fortified settlement, then castle, today memorial place with a park from where you get the vista of Cesky Tesin, and the Slezske and Moravskoslezske Beskydy.
A trip to Buchlov castle was so enchanting we decided to spend another weekend at Czech castles and chateaus. This time we decided Milotice set closer to us. The chateau is located at the edge of the town bearing the same name.
Slovakia is a beautiful land. We became convinced of this on our one-day trip. We started in a small village of Haluzice near the district town of Nove Mesto nad Vahom.
Today I am about to visit Al Ain oasis. Its name means “a spring”. After my journey to the second largest city of the Abu Dhabi emirate, I pass by couple of camel race tracks. These used to be some very popular races.
Before I traveled to China, I had noticed weird mostly roundish buildings on various ad posters. I didn’t understand why would anyone build something like this.
Last week, we had this first glimpse of Iranian capital, Tehran, today we continue in this journey.
Today we travel to medieval times to Buchlov Castle set on the hill of the same name. This monumental royal castle is close to the town of Buchlovice, Uherske Hradiste district. The town is known also for the baroque chateau of Buchlovice with its vast park.
Last week, we visited the European Capital of Culture for 2015 – Plzen. Today we continue in the tour of the city. We focus on experiences and events you shouldn’t miss.
One of the Slovakia’s most beautiful villages is Cicmany. There widely popular for their wooden houses with typical white ornaments that look like embroidery. There is much more Cicmany can offer to local visitors as well as those coming from afar.
It is hard to record what was happening, there was so much. I am traveling again. This time I am about to enjoy the panorama in the luxurious seven star hotel Emirates Palace. Dubai has a fabulous hotel Burj al Arab and Abu Dhabi wants to have a hotel of fairy tales as well. Dubai is reaching high height, the miracle in Abu Dhabi is massively long.
When we peaked out to the street in the morning, it was truly alive. The digger was demolishing houses, and people were engaged in their work. I sought to protect my breakfast against omnipresent dust. It was clear now what we would do on that day. We had to get as far as possible.
