It was just so strange and funny going to another country without any need to drive, take a train or a plane, but I must say that it was more relaxed and I wish it could always be like that

If you take a boat you will be able to see Switzerland on your left, with many beautiful houses right on the water and Germany on the right, with all the elegant restaurants of Costance.

“Tři oříšky pro Popelku” (English title “Three Wishes for Cinderella” [1973]) — created jointly by the film industries of the former Czechoslovakia and former East Germany, easily one of the most successful of Czech films as far as export is concerned, a Christmas classic — features Švihov castle, south of Plzeň in Czech Republic

Keywords: Architecture, Bohemia, Castles, Castles and Fortresses, Central Europe, Czech Culture, Czech film, Czech History, Czech Republic, Czechoslovakia, Europe, History, South Bohemia

Originally owned by the powerful noble house of Rýzmberk, the castle’s present appearance dates to a rebuilding that took place in the late 15th and early 16th centuries following the Hussite Wars.

That reconstruction was overseen by prominent architect of the time, Benedikt Rejt. Following the reconstruction, the castle was the most important and well fortified of its type in Bohemia. Consisting of inner and outer sections as well as two moats, it would have taken a very determined and well equiped adversary to stand a chance of successfully laying seige to it.

The castle changed hands in 1548. However, due to poor management, the House of Říčany who had purchased it were forced to sell it just fifty years later. The castle’s last noble owners, the venerable and prominent Czernin family, held the castle from 1598 until it was seized by the state following the Second World War.

Vitoria Gasteiz is a modern city with a medieval uptown, my favorite area to be honest: viewed from the sky, this area has the form of an almond, thanks to the Santa Maria cathedral, surrounded by streets that converge to her from both sides

Keywords: caderno, fotografia, geografia, literatura, photography, tradições, travels, viagens

But don´t worry, if you´re not into religion, there´s a lot to do and to see in the city. One of my favorite activities was to discover the local street art. Vitoria Gasteiz has an impressive collection of murals, thanks to an initiative called ‘La Ciudad Pintada’ (‘The Painted City’). It was hard to decide my favorite one…

Tarragona has a total of 13 UNESCO listed Roman remains

Tarragona is a great city to combine culture with a good cuisine under the mediterranean sun. You can enjoy the party life to get to know local people while learning a new language. Tarragona is a great place for your Erasmus experience because of its diversity and the proximity to other great cities like Barcelona, Salou, Girona and Valencia.

The One Where Mummy Actually Got To Read

The Greatest Showmum

I enjoy visiting local museums and learning a bit of local history, so during a trip to Swindon this week I took Thing 1 and Thing 2 to The Swindon Museum and Art Gallery.

I had checked in advance what time it opened and we arrived just before. It is an old building but there was a ramp up to the front door and the double pushchair fit in through the pillars and the door. As I walked in I saw a sign directing me to where I could leave the pushchair. The museum and gallery are on several floors with no lift access. This is fine for us as The Things like to roam free these days, but it’s not great if you need a pushchair.

Things 1 and 2 were happy to be set free from their pushchair and immediately started walking around the first gallery and having…

A day in Belém

Bluenose Traveler

About thirty minutes by tram to the west of central Lisbon is Belém, a lovely locale we based part of a day around during our trip back in October. Belém is not for the faint of heart if you are unnerved by crowds. In the morning, cruise ships disembark and a never-ending line of tour busses congregate outside of its most popular sites. For our first stop, we avoided the crowds and visited the National Coach Museum. The collection of historical carriages here was amazing, and seeing so many in one place let us see the progression of “technology”, if you can call it that. I never really thought of carriages before, but loved the unique focus of this museum.
