Night of Aurora Borealis

Dream to see the green light and other colors since decades ago

I have long dreamed of seeing directly from childhood, and now I am in front of it, Aurora Borealis!

The dream came true, green light danced in the sky, and I fell and fell in love for some time.

There was no other word I could say on an occasion in Iceland. A tremendous opportunity at an incredible moment. I wish you were here.

Copenhagen at the End of the Year

Pretty and pleasant city that impressed not as a metropolitan city

This is my destination in northern Europe, I still see the calm atmosphere even in welcoming Christmas, the city residents cycling with ease. Some people want to pass the atmosphere on the statue of The Little Mermaid that looks so elegant, feels like want it to take her home.

Walk a little to the castle area, an attractive building, Kastelskirken and also a windmill. You can find crowds around European-style buildings, Frederiks Kirke, the guards, and the royal court.

A colorful building on the entertaining Nyhavn canal. But you will have time to get to the culinary place by the sea with an offer that makes you satisfied.

Japan, Every Leaf is a Flower

A beautiful autumn season in a colorful country

You will see all the colored, even beautifully colored leaves in my journey in Eikan-dō Zenrin-ji. The heart is flowery, especially when the afternoon sunlight on the leaves, adds beauty, bright and sparkly.

The lucky trip with the right time to visit, the supportive weather does not rain at Lake Kawaguchi and witness the splendor of Mount Fuji from Hikari 515 to Kyoto, that's the right moment to take some interesting photos.

Its worth climbing 498 steps to the pagoda, half climbing done with blazing colours of maple leaves on both sides. Total 15 minutes walk from the train station. O, Thank God for another fine day.

Chiang Kai Shek Memorial

A mandatory destination to visit on a trip to Taiwan

You may like to shop anywhere in the tourist area, and Taipei can be one of the destinations to visit. Say one of them you can go to Zhongxiao shopping area, three shopping centers together Sogo and Breeze Center.

But. The choice to travel to the famous tomb of the founding fathers of this country is worthy of consideration, the father of the nation of Taiwan. Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is a place of honor for former leaders of the country.

You are also worth considering the culinary offerings of this country, such as Shilin Night Market, and enjoy their typical food and snacks of fried chicken, grilled seafood, traditional cakes and shaved ice with fruit slices.

A Day at the Panthéon

A trip to Paris with all the uniqueness of its neo-classical building architecture

I'm just one of the visitors to this place, apart from other famous buildings, such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and the legendary Louvre Museum.

Today I go to Panthéon which means “House of All Gods”, originally a temple of worship of goddesses in Roman times, now a church and tomb of some famous French people, say Renaissance painter, Raphael.

You can feel different atmospheres, monuments and sculptures and carvings that are created with high artistic value.

Koblenz, Meeting of Two Rivers

A town in the cool, clean and tiny country of Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

You can enjoy a natural charm, Deutsches Eck, a tip of Germany land that is a cape that limits the Rhine and Mosel River by passing ships, and this journey is not complete if not yet to Burg Eltz Castle which holds many stories.

No need to get too far from the train station, you'll find the center of the crowd, the row of shops and eating places. In fact you will meet a mall, Löhr Center, and a large church called Liebfrauenkirche.

You can satisfy yourself to one of the typical German food centers, as well as to the Zentralplatz that keeps track of the past.

Busy City of Barcelona

They say this is a city that never sleeps

The city is the concern of major media in various countries, I think this must be about Catalonia. On the other hand Barcelona is attracting attention, although people know the warmth of this city with its architectural design, especially the works of Gaudi, colors and mosaics that you will love.

You should be on the lively streets of Ramblas with pedestrians and places where entertainment is presented, a row of cafes offering drinks and food. But be prepared to pay quite expensive.

I enjoy the splendor of the Sagrada Familia, the fairy tale in the long aisle of Parque Güell, and many other places await, but provide time during the day to enjoy tapas and fried little squid, chipirones. Delicious!

Autumn at Adams

An afternoon in a town in Massachusetts

A journey in the day time before the afternoon, but I was amazed to see the atmosphere at Adams, this exotic autumn in this town. In fact I wanted to get out of the car and see myself in person.

The coloring leaves are tempting, reminiscent of an old song, "The Autumn Leaves," so romantic and memorable. The leaves are falling gently as if to greet you.

I will not miss a cup of coffee in the afternoon in the city center. You will agree, isn't it?
