That first visit in Spain was indeed one of the highlights in my travels last 2011. Indeed, it was the most memorable and most exciting trip I had that year. After so many years of dreaming to visit this beautiful country, I finally landed for the first time in Andalusia. Thanks to a dear friend who accompanied me in that trip, or else I won’t be able to do it alone due to the expensive extra single room charge. This is one advantage of traveling with a companion, it is quite cheaper compared to being alone.
The Seville Cathedral (also known as The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See) in the middle and the Archivo General de Indias (General Archive of the Indies) ont eh left side and a part of the Alcázar palace complex in Seville Cathedral.
Seville is one of the cities we visited in Andalusia. It is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville, Spain, situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir. The city contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alcázar palace complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies. (more…)
Travel excitement is over after I visited Singapore and I was a happy wanderlust when I was there. I am also happy right now because another trip will happen before the end of the year. I am glad, I got the confirmation of my vacation leave last week. With it, I was able to plan another trip accordingly. I am actually very excited after booking it because I will be traveling to another continent again. Where it is? For now, it will be a secret.
The Supertrees at the gardens by the Bay in Singapore. They are tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens’ landscape with heights that range between 25 metres (82 ft) and 50 metres (160 ft). They are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading and working as environmental engines for the gardens.
Times flies so fast! I just remember that I am already working for a month now. It should be over a month if I really started on the exact date when I supposed to start. Since I was away for a week trip to Poland, my employer changed the date to the 18th of August. It was actually my birthday trip. (more…)
Are you ready to party with me? lolz! The waiting is almost over! Oktoberfest in Munich is coming so soon! The most famous and largest festival in the planet will start in less than 24 hours. Isn’t it cool to celebrate and have fun in this festival? I know many of you will be excited to experience a truly Bavarian culture. Millions of locals, guests and tourists will surely be there again.
This year’s celebration will take place from September 20 to October 5, 2014 at the area called as Theresiewiese, locally called as the Wiesn. The Munich Oktoberfest originally took place during the 16 days up to, and including, the first Sunday in October.
The Bavarian Wheel at the Oktoberfest during one of my visits. This is one of my favorite rides especially in Volksfest or People’s fair or festivals in Germany. I visited Oktoberfest for the fourth time already and still want to back again this year.
It is two years now since my second visit in the so-called “Gaming and Entertainment Capital of the World”. If you have to think of a place which was previously a barren desert, you can really wonder the talents, abilities and intelligence of human minds. This desert is now famous around the world and is visited by many guests and tourists from all corners of the world.
I love Las Vegas, Nevada and I actually miss it. Some of the reasons are the free entertainments you can experience in the city. Even if you are only walking o n the Strip, you can already witness many street performers and entertainers there. (more…)
Hello September! I hope your first week of the month is starting great. I believed, I do and I am grateful about it! I just remember that today is Thursday. I am thinking of posting photographs here from my previous travels. This means that there will be throwback Thursday photo(s) during this day of the week.
View of Dubrovnik, Croatia from the Franjo Tuđman Bridge. It is called in Croatian as Most dr. Franje Tuđmana. It is a cable-stayed bridge carrying the D8 state road at the western approach to Dubrovnik, Croatia across Rijeka Dubrovačka near Port of Gruž.
This image taken in Dubrovnik will by my first entry for Throwback Thursday. It was taken during my holiday in the Balkans or Southeast Europe last spring 2013. I visited 5 countries during that holiday.
Dubrovnik is an interesting city. It is is a stunningly intact walled city on the Adriatic Sea coast of the extreme south of Croatia. I am thankful that one of the places in my bucketlist is finally scratched. If I have the chance to visit it again, I would surely love to.
“Dubrovnik is steeped in stunning architecture and sculptural detail, and boasts spectacular churches, monasteries, museums, and fountains. A multitude of typical towns and excursions include: The Elaphiti Islands, the attractive town of Cavtat,the Konavle valley, Mljet Island, Korčula Island, Ston and Peljesac Peninsula.”
I am slowly off to bed now. Tomorrow is another day at the fun place (workplace). Goodnight Europe and wish everyone a wonderful month of October.
