It could seem to be rather ridiculous to say a person, not being informed about a situation, that you wish to visit mountains in the Ireland. Anyway, your general idea aboud emerald island could fuse with neat plain, coloured into thousands of green islands. Nevertheless, the contrary is right: the Ireland has its mountains, not one mountain range only. And all are wonderful.
Last chapter is describing picturesque Pacific group of islands.
This chapter will make you acquaintance with small town of Sigatoka and Nadi, the third greatest town of Fiji Islands.
In today's wandering through Russian towns, we visit Republic of Tatarstan, its capital Kazan, one of biggest metropolis of Russian Federation.
The Islands of Fiji drew the attention of Europeans since their discovery. The colonizers were really shocked when they found that a cannibalism was done there. Anyway, at present, this picturesque group of islands became very popular and rather safe locality for spending holidays. (to relief of many persons).
The whole day on feet!
Now, we transfer from Spain to the neighbouring country of Portugal.
In 2010, the town of Bardejov became a winner of competition, as the most beautiful Slovak locality. Just in 1986, the town got the appreciation of prestigious UNESCO-ICOMOS European price, and later, in 2000, Bardejov was, as the second Slovak town, registered in UNESCO World Heritage nature and cultural Survey.
Afterthat, when we said good-bye to Marketa and Pepa (they continued their trip to Bolivian beach of Titicaca Copacabana) we left by bus for Arequipa, the second biggest town of Peru.
The Ireland is to be said that it would be rough country, becoming fine by means of its type of whiskey. And such fact is double so valid at west coast. Although this area is whipped by winds and rains, it conceals some from most beautiful countrysides of Europe. So, Galway Bay, including the town of Galway, situated in its north - east point, belongs to such jewels, of course.
Our second excursion to the Titicaca Lake was headed for Taquille Lake, where the countryside could remind the Mediterranean. So, we left, (together with Pepa and Marketa,who arrived to Puno early morning) for the pier. Here, we met a man, who sold us the tickets yesterday, and he lead us to rather luxurious vessel.
The 11th day of our journey was dedicated to Gibraltar (this area is not loved by Spaniards), important navigation point, connecting Europe with Africa.
We arrived to Puno, after sleepless night, at five o'clock in the morning, and were contacted immediately by accommodation beaters, as this became usuall during our stay in Peru. The first man offered us the rate of Sols 15 per a night, and such offer was acceptable.
The tenth day of our journey we made a trek in Sierra Nevada Mountains and climbed up to the top of Veleta (3392 m), the second greatest peak of Spain.
A picturesque Slovak countryside is to be characterized by extraordinary high number of castles. According to some statistics, its density there is the highest one in Europe! If we could put down all buildings, including those that ceased to exist, where it could be difficult to discover some stones at leats, its number could reach two hundred units!
We decided that for Cusco sightseeing, including environs, will be reserved the whole day. In the evening, Markéta and Pepa left us, in order to visit Pisac, as they had time enough for such excursion. The rest of our group decided to transfer to Titicaca Lake.
St. Stephen's Dome belongs to most visited Vienna sightseeings. We would like to make you acquaintance with this monument which offers, except others, unique town's outlook.
A visit of Alhambra, proud of Granada and the whole Spain at the same time.
A moment of departure from Machu Picchu came. Before a week, I manifested a satisfaction with a fact that I would bring back some dollars home, but at present, I would not be sure that some money remain me at all.
Do you know which monuments are to be found in the town of Esztergom? You find there St Stephen Basilica, of course. But, irrespective of its exceptionality, the town can offer you another place of interest. You can easily see Slovakia, directly from Hungarian part!
Wandering along south part of Iceland in east direction, the green hills at the coasts start to be appear, accompanied by waterfalls. These are the first one which can be admired by tourists. But, do not worry, there are pleanty of waterfalls in Iceland!
The arrival to magic Granada and our first meeting with Alhambra - historical jewel of the town.
Today, it is a moment for visit of Machu Picchu, famous world-known and most attractive locality of Peru from tourist point of view! It is holy place of Incas, discovered by Mr. Hiram Bingham. To tell the truth, I was not too enthusiastic to visit such place.
One famous public slogan says that the Ireland is rough country offering fine whiskey. Anyway, you can say it in another way. Ireland is realy rough country but with fine heart. And this fact could convince you at the coasts, when the ocean waves knock against rocks,break and create thousands of tears. The Irish Gods heal their frowns and wrongs, which the nation was forced to overcome.
