Whoever is familiar with the Redemption Jubilee in 1934 must know why the cross stands in that particular place in France.]]>
I started this blog as a mixed-bag, anything-goes blog then I turned it into more of a travel blog, narrating our travel experiences. But the old posts are still here and easy to find.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
May we all have a wonderful blogging and traveling year!
We hit the famous Charles Bridge on a rainy day but it was worth the walk despite the rain. Not a good day to take pictures though, especially when you have to hold an umbrella.
The statues seemed to appear black in all our pictures. We didn’t bother to read the text on every statue we saw because of the rain and wind.
This reminded us of Juliet’s House in Verona. This love locks or padlocks at Charles Bridge in Prague didn’t look quite tempting. It didn’t look as though it was intended as love locks.
One of the 30 sculptures and statues on Charles Bridge is the Holy Crucifix.]]>
It was winter when we went to Catania and spent the New Year there. Catania usually has a moderate climate in the winter, at least for us who lives in the northern Europe. Since we rented a car too, we had a good time driving to other cities like Siracusa, Ragusa and Noto. These places are rich in ancient architectures, mostly dated back to ancient Greece. And oh, the oranges, lemons and the clementines! We could even see orange trees on some road refuge. Anyhow, we liked the weather in Catania and there’s no other time of year we hope to visit the place again but in a winter.
We spent our summer holiday this year in Málaga and I must say we fell in love with the city right there and then. Every place we went to were impressive and we appreciated the lively atmosphere. The beaches were so inviting and they just a walking distance away. But it was too hot for us. I told hubby that if we’d visit the city again it should be in a winter. And that’s what we hope for.]]>
On our first day we indulged ourselves in Paella dishes. I opted for a seafood Paella while hubby preferred the beef Paella. I thought Paellas are dry but soaked in some kind of sauce but when it came at our table it reminded me of risotto. Surprisingly though, I like it better than risotto. The difference might be in the spices and flavours.
