A walk in Horta San Giulio Italy It’s not always that when traveling it’s possible to carry out all the plans, it happens that for various reasons it is necessary to change plans on the spot. So, at the end of September last year, it turned out with a trip from Stresa to Lake Orta. On a half-full sightseeing bus in the afternoon, we drove along the picturesque mountain roads for about an hour, and then went downhill from Villa Crespi along a cobbled street running along the lake. Amazing views of the island of San Giulio and the hilly opposite shore of the lake opened in the alleys.
Zbarazh Castle Ukraine On the way from the Pochaev Lavra, we stopped at the Zbarazh castle. After all, it was here that the dramatic events of the confrontation between Cossack and Polish troops took place, described by Henryk Sienkiewicz in the novel “Fire and Sword”, which were filmed by the world famous director Jerzy Hoffman.
Hong Kong | Causeway Bay for three hours Hong Kong What in a couple of centuries can a place once called the Yellow Mud River (Won Nai Chun) turn into? To Hong Kong's Causeway Bay area. There is a proposal to change hotel slippers to sneakers and go for a walk along this edge, located on one of the historical axes of the metropolis.
Tour of the USA. Summer in Alaska. Kenai and Seward United States of America Alaska is a very large state. Not as big, of course, as it is painted on the usual distorted maps, where Greenland is the size of Africa. And as big as on a globe, where Africa is almost twice as large as Russia, Greenland is smaller than Kazakhstan, and the United States and Canada are almost the same size.
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!)
Vicenza - love at first sight Italy

Now I know for sure - love at first sight exists! On a pleasant, clear day, glancing at Vicenza from Monte Berico, I was convinced of this. To get to Vicenza - the city in which more than two dozen buildings of Andrea Palladio survived, dreamed a long time ago, but thought that this would remain a cherished desire. But dreams, it turns out, come true!
