Venice: City in a Swamp Italy Venice has never been on my wish list of places to visit. A terribly public place, as a rule, should have wild price tags, crowds of tourists and the absence of even a hint of authenticity. But everything changes when they come - New Year's holidays. And here, oddly enough, it turned out that starting a new 2019 year in Venice is a very good deal.
North Pole. Back and forth in two days. Svalbard. Norway Our rapid raid on the North Pole took the standard route: Svalbard - Barneo - North Pole and back the same way. Not standard in it was only the number of days.
The Svalbard Archipelago is the gateway to the Arctic. This is where the polar expeditions begin, people come here to see what this Arctic is.
Lion Rock: another view of Hong Kong from above Hong Kong The fact that I love Hong Kong will not be news for long-time readers of this blog. Every time I try to find something new for myself here, and so far there have been no problems with this. During a recent two-day visit, I climbed onto Lion Rock. This is a great climb, which for some reason I did not know about before (otherwise I would have gone a long time ago!)
Moving around Hong Kong Hong Kong I was surprised to learn that most of my readers prefer the wicked Los Angeles to Hong Kong! I’m probably clumsily describing Hong Kong charms, and the Hollywood PR machine is too good in business. Well, I'll try again.
Excursion in the USA. Boston. United States of America The obvious solution was to go straight to Boston, descend through New York and Washington to Norfolk in Virginia, and only then go back in detail through the missing central states for wintering in Montana (with wintering, by the way, it was also not clear until recently). Thus, after a week and 3,200 kilometers (we drove without haste), we arrived in the autumn lands, which in Hawaii I could only dream of.
Toronto 360. CN Tower Canada

One of my favorite activities in any new city is to climb the highest point and look at the city from above. However, I am no exception, since there is one common adage on this subject. In Toronto, there is a wonderful point for panoramic views of the city - an observation deck on the CN Tower. This building with a height of 533 m - one of the highest in the world. The observation deck with a circular view is also very high - at the level of 346 m from the ground.
