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!
North of the island of Palawan and the village of El Nido - the most beautiful place of all that I saw in the Philippines and, perhaps, in all of Southeast Asia.
