The island of Lanzarote made me wonder. It's just a few hours on the water from the neighboring Canary Islands, but there's a feeling that you find yourself in another world. 300 years ago, everything was blooming and smelling, the harvest was several times a year. So far in 1730, in the result of...

The motto of the small island state of Malta - "Valor and Permanence". In fact, the history of this amazing country is rich and still has mysteries and puzzles not fully solved. During our trip to Malta, we visited a huge number of historical sites. It is especially easy to do because this country...
Malta is not considered to be a country with a lot of natural attractions. There are no forests, no lakes or rivers. There are also few mountains and even beaches. Tourists are often offered the clean sea, rich marine life and numerous historical sights of different epochs. Yet there are at...
Let me tell you about Valetta, the capital of Malta, which I have visited in 2012. This city has a rich history, plenty of forts, rugged coastline and it is worthy of a visit.   The surprising fact is the present Maltese are the direct descendants of the Phoenicians in many ways. This...
If you're traveling to the very south of Spain in the town of Tarifa, you should think about going for a day or two in Morocco. Especially if you have never been to Africa before. We did not miss such a chance as well. At the ferry ticket offices "FRS" in Tangier you can buy organized tours of...
My family and I, we visited Sardinia three years ago. Recently I saw a television program, describing the ancient and unsolved mysteries of the island - about the strange, unusually large tombs of the Giants, without a trace of a vanished nation-builder of stone towers, the nuraghi, and also about...
One of the main purposes of our July trip to Normandy was to visit places that commemorate the landing of allied forces and the opening of the Western Front 70 years ago. The traces of the Second World War have been well preserved in Normandy, and carefully eyed today. This was the scene of a...
Normandy is a land of glorious beaches and stunning seascapes. Many tourists, having seen colorful pictures on the Internet, come here hoping for an unforgettable beach holiday. There are more than enough beaches in this region of France, but it is worth remembering that you are unlikely to...
The first part of the review can be found here. There was a huge line to  The Church Of the Holy Sepulchre . Although I can say one thing for sure - the aura and energy are extremely powerful there. The whole building of the temple is divided between the various Christian...
Usually, each guest of Israel considers visiting of  Jerusalem  a must-see program destination. Someone is interested in its multi-faceted history, someone makes pilgrimage tours, and someone is just chasing contrasts and bright colors of this ancient city. Many people are...
The carboots are literally flea markets or sales of some stuff where vendors sell second-hand goods usually directly from open trunks of their cars. This kind of flea markets has become an integral part of British culture. They exist in almost every town of the British Isles. Generally, there are...
The city of  Belfast  has many wonderful places, castles, and museums.  Belfast Castle  is one of these must-visit places. Built just over 140 years ago, this castle is hardly an important historical and architectural monument. But, thanks to its picturesque location and...
I suppose that the capital of Northern Ireland,  Belfast , would undoubtedly get the title of the most controversial city in Europe. Although, it is difficult to name the reasons at once. In order to understand Belfast, you must visit and deeply feel this city. Everything seems to be...
During our trip to  Belfast  (Ireland, UK), we were walking around the city and witnessed an unusual event, the Unionist Parade (the so-called conservative parade of the supporters of Northern Ireland's union with Britain). There are some strained relations between the different...
Quite recently, I wasn't going to visit  Barcelona . I thought that an experienced traveler has absolutely nothing to do there. I imagined the scenes of the tourist mayhem and bacchanalia. The Gaudi's architecture seemed like a glamorous trifle,  La Rambla  - a meaningless...
Apparently, tourists studied each corner in  Barcelona . But a travel history lesson of this city is not over. It seems that as long as humanity exists, the streets of Barcelona will always be crowded, and each new visitor will find something interesting and memorable. Gothic streets,...
Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family or  Sagrada Familia  is a famous place of attraction in  Barcelona . This is a must-see sight visited annually by millions of people from around the world. Almost all the people who visited this place, admire and worship the...
Most of us associate  Barcelona  with crowds of tourists, the eternal heat, and the sun. But in fact, the capital of Catalonia is beautiful at any time of the year. We visited this city in the middle of February when prices on plane tickets were very low, and there is not a lot of...
Now I'd like to tell you about gala evening, which  Azamara arranges for its guests on each cruise, and is included in the price of the cruise. We really enjoyed it. We had an evening out at the Oceanographic Museum in  Monaco . The event was brilliantly organized because...
Let's continue our walk around Naples (Walking Around Naples. P.1)! Here’s the square where the church and the monastery are situated – Piazza Gesu Nuovo. Statue of Madonna with its pedestal are so high - about 30 meters together. It’s difficult to take pictures of it. Here’s...
Naples in summer is really overcrowded and it's very hot there. But there is a place where you can relax a little bit from that - it is the Church of Santa Chiara. Or rather not even the church, but the monastery of the church. Columns and benches are decorated with...
We continued walking through the local museum of  Split ( Split. Croatia. P.1 ). There was also a section of folk clothing. As it often happens, wedding dresses in the old days were NOT WHITE! "Marine elements" on the clothes - this was something new! Let's not take into account...
