Standing on 3,800 meter above sea level in Cusco, Peru. Admiring Inca heritage sites, Spanish-style cathedrals and Peruvian food – while beating the altitude sickness.
We visited Madrid during Easter. Beyond the yummylicious food, The Golden Triangle of Art, we stroll through the historic center, soaking in the Spanish royalty, culture, and history.
Then I saw something extraordinary…
My impression of Helsinki: compact, cultural, clean and cool. I stayed in the city for a few days in winter, yet I found the city was welcoming and charming. Helsinki’s city center is compact and easy to navigate, while tourists could basically go anywhere on foot. Here is a 2-day easy going itinerary of the major attractions in Finland’s Daughter of the Baltic.
Last time when I was in town (again), I finally visited Versailles, and I found it was an art pilgrimage long overdue. This is all about why, when, how, and what not to miss visiting the palace and gardens of Versailles, France.
The higher you go, the farther you see. It is also the more you see. I love reaching high points and appreciate the city layout, grids, architecture and cityscape. Especially Paris is rather flat and situated on the river Seine, you might see the city a little bit differently from the above. 🙂
