Dreaming To Visit Venice

>> Friday, May 29, 2009

One of the place here in Italy that I want to visit someday is in Venice. According to my husband this is the top most visited places in Italy. During summer a lot of people are going in this place to see it's beautiful sceneries. Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Bridges", and "The City of Light". It is often cited as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Here are some places that I want to see in Venice.

10 Places In Europe To Visit This Summer

Europe is one of the best continent. It is so rich in culture. Each country is so diverse wherein sometimes it's very hard to decide in what places are we going to go. Since it has so many wonderful countries.

Here are some 10 ideas for places to visit this summer in Europe.

1. Vienna is a place will is certain to be popular this summer with Austria and Switzerland hosting the Euro 2008 football tournament. Vienna (or Wien as it is known locally) is the capital of Austria and is certain to be lively and it is a pleasant place in its own right to visit. The city can be lively and has some decent museums and galleries and is small and easy to move around in.

2. Barcelona is always a good city to visit and in the summer, as long as you avoid the hottest month, which is August, Barcelona is a great place to visit and has some excellent sites worth visiting including the Sagrada Familia, the marina and Guell Park. Barcelona is a perfect long weekend destination and in the summer months there is a good possibility of fine weather.

3. Dublin is a lively city even in the middle of winter, with bars and pubs full of people having a good time. As well as excellent pubs, Dublin is not a bad place for shopping, live music and theatre and museums.

4. Venice, Italy is a favourite of many and a visit to St.Mark's Square or along the river in a gondola is a one off experience. If you are interested in churches and architecture this is your city.

5. London is simply excellent for musems, galleries and many other attractions. A visit to the British Museum, the Natural History Museum or the like, will keep you busy for days. There are also many fine restaurants and some decent pubs in the capital.

6. Helsinki in Finland is not everyone's first choice for destination but Helsinki is an interesting city to visit in summer time. Time it well and you can experience the two to three weeks when it barely gets dark at night and when many Finns party around the clock.

7. Cap D'agde in France is a town rather than a city and it is an eye opener literally with tens of thousands of nudists letting themselves get an all over tan in what is the world largest nudist village and resort. You can shop, get a haircut, swim, eat and do much more without wearing a stitch.

8. Paris, France is of course also well worth a visit and the Louvre and the Champs Elysees are two attractions than one immediately thinks of and which are certainly worth seeing.

9. Athens in Greece is a must for fans of architecture and history. Athens is a city rich in history and Athens mixed with a few days on the Greek islands can be a great way to spend a week or two.

10. Lisbon, Portugal is one of the smaller European capital cities and is an interesting city to visit. Lisbon similar to Athens, has some interesting architecture and history. This is mixed with the modern which includes a state of the art shopping mall near fans park.


Most Famous And Most Beautiful Fountain In ROME

>> Friday, May 15, 2009

The Trevi Fountain is one of the place that I visited when I went to Rome last 2007. A friend of mine who was with me asked me if I watched the movie MILAN before. Because this is one of the place that was been seen in that movie. It's the place wherein the main actor is looking for her girlfriend named Jennifer.

Trevi Fountain is the largest and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. There are some people who consider this fountain as the most famous and arguably the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome. It stands 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8meters (65 feet) wide. It is located in the Trevi rione in Rome, Italy.

There is a traditional legend that if you will throw a coin into the water/fountain, you will return to Rome. *Before throwing the coin, you should toss it over your shoulder with your back to the fountain.*

According to Wiki, approximately 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day and are collected at night. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy.

Here are some sample photos that I took when I went there.

    Here is the complete appearance of the fountain.

Are you dreaming living in a tropical paradise? Well, if given a chance I want to live there. It's my dream to live in a tropical paradise together with my loveones. But I don't know when it will happen. Maybe when I will become a millionaire...:-)

Last Monday, I saw an article regarding an islands that they are selling in Australia. There are several islands off the Australian Great Barrier Reef that are for sale. Since we are experiencing a global crisis, the prices of the islands are cheaper than usual. The Capricorn Coast division of Coldwell Banker Real Estate sells nine islands, some of which have luxury homes around the Great Barrier Reef with prices ranging from 1.3 million Australian dollars (962,000 U.S. dollars) up to 90 million Australian dollars (67 million U.S. dollars). Then, there is one island for sale in Long Island wherein the price decline to 42% in its starting price, set at 6.5 million Australian dollars. Others are sold at a price at least half that of a year ago.

Some of the islands that is on sale right now are Temple Island, Avoid Island, Marble Island and Hinchinbrook island. So, if you are interested, grab the opportunity now.
