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!

Beauty of the Southern Urals Russian Federation

As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.

Pitcairn Islands 3/4 Pitcairn

Pitcairn - a small island, but for 3 days without his quad has been inspected. He has a very rugged terrain, typical of volcanoes, destroyed by erosion.

Hong Kong. On the sunny side. Hong Kong

Those who have not been to Hong Kong, as well as to me before this trip, this place seems to be a sort of megalopolis of some skyscrapers, with an incredible number of cars and people, entirely in advertising and smog. Naturally, such naive delusions are easy to dispel, one has only to unfold the map, where it is clear that urban areas occupy only a small part of Hong Kong, the rest is lush tropical greenery and numerous sandy beaches.

Street, people, lasts, can not sleep ... Italy

Perugia, the capital of Umbria, in spite of its architectural simplicity, I liked it. Ugly girl, priodevshis and make up, so someone will like. And from Perugia to attract tourists, having at hand such serious competitors as Todi and Orvietto (about them in the next post), the city all the time coming up with some holidays and festivals.
