Berlin. I always wanted to visit the current Germany’s capital. I heard about it a lot and this has created in me some ideas, ideas that have to be compared with the reality. Cosmopolitan, open-minded, young and modern city. This is what I was being told about Berlin in the past years. Now the time has arrive: Berlin here we come!
One of your days in Manhattan I highly recommend to hire a bike! You’ll be able to stop wherever you want, take pics, live the jungle New Yorker traffic: live Manhattan! If you choose to use citibike you don’t even have to worry about the parking, cause at every corner there are citibike stations.
For sure this is not the city that comes up to your mind when you’re thinking about traveling. New York, California, the Caribbean, Europe…but not Portland.
Portland is Oregon largest city. It is located in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers.
Although it is a known tourist destination in Turkey, Marmaris it is often known thanks to the excursions that are offered in Rhodes. Tourists there, frequently take advantage of one of their day of holiday in the Greek Island and go to visit this little city in Turkey in a one day cruise. That is the same way I visited it. An hour and a half by ferry from Rhodes (Greece).
In greek Ῥόδος, this is the easternmost of the major islands of the Aegean Sea; on the southeast side it is touched by the Sea of the East. It is located about 17.7 km from the Turkey coast.
How many of us have thought of visiting Barcelona, Spain? Many of us for sure! Few people know that Barcelona is not all about Spanish culture, but more about Catalan culture. Spain is made divided in various regions that over the history have been under different domains, Arabic, Aragonese, etc. These regions hold a very strong cultural and political heritage, it is not surprising that the word “independence” is often used by its citizens.
From Montpellier to Bordeaux
10:30 am, believe it or not, we went to bed at 4.00am, it’s 7 of us with only one bathroom, but we’re ready to go! And here we are on the road again, four hours by car, passing through Toulouse, direction of Bordeaux. It’s 7 of us in a 7-seat car with 7 bags…. you can just imagine it..
Montpellier is not a well known destination. Until the day before my departure I just knew it because its French Ligue 1 soccer team. I knew there were beaches, and that was located halfway between Marseille and Barcelona.
If you choose to go to Montpellier by plane, there is a very convenient shuttle service.
Geneva or Genéve as the inhabitants of this Switzerland gem call it, is situated on Lake Geneva and next to the French Alps. It’s a destination known mostly for its business affairs and international organizations like the UN, Red Cross and CERN. Geneva give its visitors a special atmosphere.
“Well, there are things from which a man cannot run away.” – John Wayne
This is what John Wayne says in one of his movies. I’m not a big fan of him, but today we are in the place where his movies came to life, where every real movie cowboy looked toward the horizon with a suggestive music and the sound of hooves galloping as background sound. Here we are: Monument Valley!
