On my road from Cádiz to Toledo, I spent couple of days in Lisbon. I think I really deserve some comfort and a shower. Thus, I would live in a hostel this time.
It was getting closer to our departure from Xian 西安. With our backpacks we had to move by city bus to a train station. It was pretty easy till then...
In Canada's southwest corner, near the US border, there is a city which is central to our today's article.
We entered the first courtyard if Nitra Castle while going across a stone bridge. The direction board led us to the road to its individual parts. We started our exploration on a path going to outlook territory where the Diocese Museum is located as well as a bishopric palace.
After we enjoyed walks in Finnish towns of Kuopio and Rovaniemi, we set off to explore another Scandinavian country. This time Sweden, or rather the Kingdom of Sweden.
When I was arriving at the center of Krabi province I didn’t expect much. Guidebooks don’t mention it at all and it is rather an obligatory stop for many travelers while transporting to local islands or to nearby Ao Nang resort.
The Czech Republic has become sort of the observation tower superpower in the last few years. 24 new were opened in 2014 alone and many new are being still under construction.
It is time to move on in the direction to Cádiz. Everybody recommended me to see it. So why not?
We had last day to spend in Xian. We had tickets not to the opera but for the evening train which would get us to my beloved Chengdu 成都.
Last week we concluded our story about Toronto with a short mention of Ontario Science Center. It would be pity to don’t spend more time at this great institution.
Last week we entered the castle complex together. We stopped on Pribina Square at Corgon’s statue many consider the symbol of the city. Who he was and how continued our trip around Nitra is about to be revealed on the following lines.
Krabi province in south Thailand has been more and more popular. Ao Nang resort and Ko Phi Phi are its greatest attractions. They offer splendid sceneries around limestone cliffs, many great bars, restaurants, and nearby are beaches like Railay, Ko Poda, and Ko Hong which are among the most beautiful in all Thailand.
The Sea to Sky freeway running between Squamish and Whistler (BC) offers you wonderful vistas. Don’t, however, let it to decoy away from the turn to Garibaldi Lake. It would be simply a sin to not to see Garibaldi Provincial Park.
Cordoba was the richest city of the West and the center of Islamic culture. First emirs resided in Seville. In the sixth year of Arab occupation (716) Emir Alhor moved his court to Cordoba. The ruled as deputies of the caliph of Damask. They were military warlords subordinated to the might of the House of Umayyad.
Terracotta army in Xian 西安 was truly interesting yet it wasn’t the only thing we saw there. We were, perhaps, bit disappointed from all those people we had met there. Whether they were tourists looking for something exciting, or vendors trying to make profits, and I don’t even mention high admission… We even hadn’t seen any good place to have lunch in. We ate only some snack, got on the bus to get back to the city.
We have already spent some time with Canada on our travellers’ website. Mostly, however, we have taken you to its nature. Today we go to the city. As the name of the article suggest, our destination for today is Toronto.
We concluded our hike across Nitra at “historical” graffiti last week. It was interesting for us and it also showed us the direction we would choose. Not even a minute later we were on maintained Zupni Square and a yellow building as its landmark.
After a visit in Riga, Latvia we set off to the last of the Baltic countries – Estonia. Northernmost Baltic country has rich history and amazing sights. We traveled to Tallinn to see those.
Ko Lanta island is an ideal place for peaceful rest, or to enjoy cool tropical atmosphere of southern Thailand. Half-empty beaches, bungalows, and small pensions scattered across coconut groves will enchant you. The same applies to sleepy bars, restaurants, and there are also great possibilities where to dive, or you can visit a vast national park in the mountainous middle of the island. It will take you mere three hours to get there from the Krabi airport.
What you think of when somebody says “America”? Perhaps it won’t be Yellowstone National Park nor Hollywood. Even though both places are great. You rather think of the Statue of Liberty or Central Park. The true symbol of the US is New York, the “capital of the world” as it is often referred to.
I believe I will visit Granada one more time at some point in the future. Yet now I head to Málaga and Córdoba.
„This is something you have to see!“ „It’s sure worth it!“ „It is world’s wonder.“
Trip we make today together will take us to western Romanian city of Timisoara.
Last week we took a stroll in pedestrian zone leading to Nitransky Castle. We stopped at many works of art that depicted fame from the times of Great Moravia. As for architectonic gems, we visited a synagogue, and today we continue in our journey.
Our trip to the Baltics region started in Lithuania. There we visited two beautiful cities – Vilnius and Trakai. Today, we move to Latvia, Lithuania’s neighbor. We visit its capital, Riga. The city is truly charming.
