London By Linda®

The only London museum related to inland waterways, London Canal Museum explores not only how canals came to be built but also teaches about the lives of the workers, the cargoes, horses and how canals work. Situated at King’s Cross, this unique waterways museum is housed in a former ice warehouse built around 1862 for Carlo Gatti, the famous ice cream maker, and features the history of the ice trade and ice cream as well as the canals. Consider adding a guided towpath walk to your visit via a free audio walking guide that starts from Camden Town and guides you to the museum.

Budapest- my new favourite city! Offering stunning architecture, cobbled streets, breath-taking views and quirky nightlife, this city really is a hidden European gem.

I have been wanting to visit the Hungarian capital for the past couple of years, and with its appeal rising year on year, I thought it would be the perfect choice for a weekend away to beat those January blues.

Just a quick two and a half hour flight, we arrived in Budapest and were met by the freezing temperatures, I mean I expected it to be cold but if you’re not a fan of cold weather, I suggest you maybe go later on in the year.

Our apartment was located in the centre close to all the attractions and restaurants we wanted to visit. Accommodation in Budapest is very mixed with expensive hotels, to low-budget hostels but you can easily get an affordable apartment for under…

Fire Island Lighthouse

The Humble Fabulist

130 steps and a narrow staircase. Fortunately, there are several landings in-between, where we can pretend we stopped to check the view, catch our breaths and continue climbing. We can also learn some fun facts about the lighthouse.

Step 26, first window landing, all’s well.
We read: The lighthouse was constructed from the inside out. The stair treads and centre posts acted as internal scaffolding. As the walls rose in height, additional stair treads and centre posts were added. The construction rate was about 1 foot/day and was completed within one year. The total cost was $40,000 including the lens, about $1.14 million in today’s dollars.

Its iconic tapered shape is most likely based on John Smeaton’s stone lighthouse of 1759 at Eddystone Rocks, just south of Plymouth, England. Smeaton was the first self-proclaimed “civil engineer” and also the first to consider the problem of constructing a lighthouse at sea…

Vietnam

Vietnam, a place to explore the ancient historical sights, to have an epic adventure and to behold a unique experience for a lifetime. There was a time when Vietnam conjured up the horrifying images of war-torn destinations, but now it is a familiar part for many Southeast Asian travellers. It has become a highly recommended place to visit by travellers for a majority of reasons. The major reason being, it’s super cheap cost of living and a handful of beauty and traditionalism for all the backpackers across the world. So think less and grab an all-inclusive tour package to explore the beauty and enchantment of Vietnam by Citrus Holidays.
