Why go to the island of fishermen

26/12/2023
It’s already clear from the silhouette of Isola dei Pescatori that the island is very compact - the bell tower of the ancient church of San Vittore rises above several three-story houses. Among the Borromean Islands only on this, the smallest - 100 by 350 m, now live permanently about three dozen people. Compared to the other two islands of Maggiore and Bella, it looks very modest. There is a small square, a central narrow street, a circular embankment, many small fish restaurants "Peskeriy" and one church.

The Great Ocean Road is an iconic road route and one of the most scenic trails in the world. Australia is made for road travel. Good roads, long distances, beautiful views. Along the busy trails, there is always a place to have coffee, snacks and rest.

One day in Tallinn

26/12/2023
During the raging flu virus, every journey becomes a difficult test for the psychological state. You look not so much at the list of attractions as at the reports from the fields of medical battles. In this regard, my August visit to Latvia and Estonia seemed ideal. The virus spared these countries and nothing interfered with a quiet tourist vacation. I spent most of the trip in my native Riga, but I allotted only one day to Tallinn. Let's see what I managed to see there.

West Canada. Kootenay National Park. Marble canyon.

26/12/2023
Our next trip is in September in Western Canada. Alberta and British Columbia. As usual, I am drawn away from widely advertised and massively visited places, so I planned our route so as to spend maximum time in beautiful and little-known places, away from the crowds.

Brescia is a city and a fortress.

26/12/2023
The city of Brescia is located in northern Italy, in the foothills of the Alps, roughly halfway between Milan and Verona. It is not as popular in terms of tourism as its famous neighbors, but there are many sights and ancient monuments preserved here, so a walk in Brescia is like a journey through time - from one historical era to another.

One day in Würzburg

26/12/2023
The old town of Würzburg is located on the flat bank of the Main River in Lower Franconia. The city is quite ancient, the first mention of a settlement in these places dates back to 704. Until that time, the Celts lived here. The majority of tourists are Americans, fans of the wine traditions of Franconia and lovers of the Baroque. The main attraction is the Würzburg Palace, which is one of the three most magnificent palaces in Europe, along with the French Versailles and Vienna's Schönbrunn.

Corsica: Napoleon, Ajaccio

26/12/2023
Napoleon was born in Ajaccio 3 months after France trampled on the independent Corsican Republic. Of course, Poles and residents of the United States claim that it was theirs that had the first constitution, but this is not so: the first constitution of the modern era was in Corsica, 40 years earlier.

A few years ago I realized my old dream - to go to Scotland. My wife and I drive the car almost the entire country, except for the most northern part, but with the arrival on the island.

There, where the dragon descended into the sea

26/12/2023
Long millennia humid tropical climate and abundant rainfall have worked over the landscape at the north-western coast of the Gulf of Tonkin. Water gnaws at folding limestone land, washed away the soft rock, leaving the tower outliers riddled with caves and grottoes. As the years passed, lithospheric plate fell, shore retreated, the land became the sea floor, and thousands of mountains, cliffs and rocks islands rose above the water surface. So a Halong Bay.

The other side of Florence

26/12/2023
I always want to get somewhere higher. More Sasha Vasilyev sang: "..ot sky until the last floors - just apply a hand ..". But as for travel, here I am not original. Almost every tourist tries to look at the possibility of a new city from somewhere above.

Jacksonville - a city without people

26/12/2023
This may seem strange, but for 2.5 years of life in Jacksonville, I wrote very little about this city. This is due to the fact that Jacksonville - is a city of the anthill, where virtually nothing interesting, where decent people are not made to move in no other way, except by car, and where to walk, in fact, can only be in the area beaches. Recently I was, after all, walked through the city center, the so-called downtown, and a few of his take pictures.

Comfortable Vancouver

26/12/2023
There are many eternal themes for debate: the chicken or the egg, Godzilla or King Kong, my brother will beat your dad, explosion or 6 days, etc. Do you want to spend an unforgettable evening? Put ontariytsa and britanskokolumbiytsa and ask them where the climate is better - in Toronto or Vancouver. Do not forget the popcorn!
