After several articles on London we jump across Europe to the Mediterranean, actually to the east part of the sea. Today we will have a taste of sun after rains of London, and warm waters of the Sea of Crete.
After some time my life in Chengdu 成都 was becoming quite monotonous. On one hand, every day was quite new but it was apparent that everyone longed for a break.
Last week you tasted something of the unique atmosphere around Piccadilly. Today we move to places that are very important to the British statehood.
I am falling with Netherlands more and more. During my third visit in this country, in April 2014, I was enchanted by Utrecht. It used to be the most important Dutch city south of Amsterdam. Its population of slightly more than 300,000, is perfectly suited to a group of cities that are not too small but not too big. If we add to this the fact that there is the largest university in the country, it is clear that it will be a quiet and pleasant city, which is on the other hand really alive.
There is much more happening in Chinese parks than in Czech parks. In the previous article it was mentioned dancing and all kinds of performances. But this is not all.
After the visit at beautiful Trafalgar Square we continue to see another sights in London.
On my third and last day on the peninsula, Katya had to go take care of something in Tralee. She promised me he'd take me to the Conor Pass - the highest mountain range in Ireland. On the way out of the station this way because it was hard to pass because the road was covered in snow. So we had to go another route through Annascaul. The town of Dingle, the path begins to rise sharply in the mountains and the landscape is changing rapidly.
In China, there are places famous for their parks and gardens, for example Su-chou州. You can find several parks in every Chinese city. Chengdu成都is no exception.
Last week we have seen one of the most famous district of London, Soho. Once it was a red light district. Today, however, we move on.
On the following day we got back to Dingle. Kata had to get done some of her things and I set off for a walk. In this season you hardly see a tourist. So I enjoyed the atmosphere of this fishing center. Small houses have beautiful colorful facades, especially a view of them from the harbor is spectacular.
Back in Amsterdam when I was waiting for my flight to Chengdu, smiling pandas surrounded me. On the background there was a clear blue sky. No. In reality there were no pandas in every park in the city, no blue sky, so my ideals immediately vanished. I decided to see pandas with my bare eyes.
After or Genoa walks we move northwest, to Great Britain and its capital, London.
In March 2013, I decided to visit my friend in Ireland. After one night spent at a place of one amazing couchsurfer (free accommodation) I hopped on a train to Tralee. It is sort of an entrance gate to Kerry shire. There my friend Katarina lives.
Who was in summer in China, knows what I am talking about. Once you get off an airconditined airport, its like by a switch somebody turns on sauna. At least I felt like this when I arrived to Chengdu.
Today we continue in our walks through Genoa, one of the main cities of Italian culture and history. In the last weeks we have learned something on Piazza Ferrari or Piazza Giacomo Matteoti. Today we look at another parts of the city, hopefully we help you to get in the mood for the summer and give you inspiration for prospective vacation.
Average enthusiast knows that Lithuania exists. And perhaps knows where the country is located. But that’s usually it. Unlike traditional tourist destinations such as Croatia, Italy, or Greece, Lithuania is at the edge of interest of average Western. Well, there is the Baltic Sea. But it is too cold to swim in.
Interesting edition called Around Slovakia by Dajama publishing systematically maps the most beautiful and the most interesting routes and places worth visiting. Last week we introduced the Bicycler’s Guide: The Most Beautiful Biking Hills, and today we will tell you about this years’ novelty The Most Beautiful Walk Trips. One of them will win it today.
If you are in China, you wont omit to shop in a supermarket. But there is a supermarket supermarket. There are shops of western type, and then there are Chinese supermarkets. And of those, let's say something.
The summer has arrived in our region with temperatures easily exceeding 30 degrees Celsius. The first week of June at a high temperature will cause many ideas for the upcoming holidays if possible spent at the sea.
We get up a bit earlier in the morning. Between eight to nine o’clock. We need to get to the center before our ticket will lost its validity. We pack our things and after a long breakfast and short farewell to Jell we set off to the main train station. Today, our schedule includes coffee so we find comfy armchairs under blossoming trees on the bank of one of the channels.
Of course, from time to time one just gets this urge to “bargain”. In case that you consider this rather amusement and you do not have nothing better to do. I even thing that if you are lucky, you can buy many things really cheap at market. Moreover, you will chitchat while doing so.
A guy sitting behind me is getting on fire. I do not understand from what for he drank only a third of a beer. But it is not very pleasant. For a while he annoys Ana sitting next to him. Fortunately, a very robust and kind black woman offers her to switch places.
Before you find yourselves in some foreign country, perhaps you would not know what you have to do. Mostly, those are things that are completely normal in your homeland. These things are usually a routine, no one even think about. For example shopping. Lets start right on the street with stalls.
You could have read about Italy, its regions and cities some of our articles. However, we have not written about one of the most famous Italian cities, Genoa.
On the way “home” we pick up Zuzka. Friend of Ana that just had arrived from France. On the following day, the sun woke us up around 10 o’clock. Because there is not enough sun in our land, we enjoy it during the whole on a blanket about 200 meters from a place where we live. The best way how to learn about a foreign country. I highly recommend it!
