15 minutes by helicopter, and we landed on the glacier tongue. This is one of the largest glaciers of Alaska . Its length is 50 kilometers and the width is 3 km. It is constantly on the move and it drags huge boulders from the tops of the mountains to the Pacific Ocean. Most of all I like the...
In the morning the weather was, as usual, lousy. In the evening we were going to watch the whales in the open ocean, and I hoped that it would get better. We spent the night in a small town of Seydisfjordur with a huge population of 750 people. In general, the entire population of Iceland is...
It rained in  Santorini , one of the most beautiful Greek islands, only 26 days a year. All these days fell during winter. Over the past 10 years, there were no rainy summer days, but this year was special because a team of travel-bloggers came here. Not everyone can be so "lucky", but we...

I do not like fish, but just love to go to the fish markets, particularly if they are located by the sea or ocean. As, for example, in Seattle , where I'm trying to get used to the 11-hour time difference before cruise to Alaska... Sellers here (Pike Place Market) are the real actors....
This was our penultimate stop before Santiago. There was nothing special to do in the city of  Puerto Montt , and we went to the Chilean Lake District, visited German City of Roses, fed lamas and alpacas, watched the waterfalls and climbed by cable car to the top of local Fuji...
Last week I was visiting my brother in Orlando, just in an hour's drive from  Cape Canaveral,  and the launch of a military satellite was scheduled that day. I came here once to see the launch of the shuttle, but then it was postponed and I left with nothing. This time, I...
