I will remember for a lifetime those two days that we spent in this city. It is not easy to write a review about San Francisco. This city has an extraordinary energy and extraordinary personalities live here. We have seized just a moment in the life of this amazing city but we were lucky to have...
During my stay for a few days in San Francisco, I visited the local waterfront with a special pleasure. Not far from the well-publicized Fisherman's Wharf with its famous pier 66, I found an important (until recently) part of the historic seaport, better known under the name of Fort Mason. Once a...
The battery is located in a picturesque place - on a hill near the bridge "Golden Gate" in front of San Francisco . Most of the tourists come here to take pictures of the bridge and they usually do not notice the battery. Many iconic photos were taken from this vantage point, but almost no...
To be honest, we didn't manage to have a good walk in Los Angeles. We didn't have enough time, we already spent two weeks on a ship. Therefore we saw the city quite superficially. Nevertheless, we visited Universal and Disneyland. Our acquaintance with the city began in a port. This is the...

The world's first theme park of Walt Disney Company was opened in Los Angeles. Moreover, he personally planned the construction of this park. Therefore, this park most...
I devoted each afternoon to trips around the island. Fortunately,  Kauai is a small island, and there were only 31-40 miles (50-65 kilometers) from one end (where my hotel was located) to the other. I could get to my desired location within an hour. There's only one road around the island....
I had rented a car for the duration of my stay in Hawaii since it made easier to get around Kauai. However, I soon realized that everything was very tourist friendly.  Kauai is a small island with a diameter of about 37 miles (60 kilometers). This is the oldest of the main...
Pearl Harbor  is another point of interest in Oahu. This harbor is on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Much of the harbor and the surrounding area is occupied by the central base of the Pacific Fleet naval forces of the United States. On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, which led the...
