Bamberg is a town in northern Bavaria, Germany, laid out over 7 hills where the Regnitz and Main rivers meet. Its old town preserves structures from the 11th to 19th centuries including the muraled Altes Rathaus (town hall), which occupies an island in the Regnitz reached by arched bridges. The Romanesque Bamberg Cathedral, begun in the 11th century, features 4 towers and numerous stone carvings. (Wikipedia)
Hello everyone! We’ve just got back from our three-day visit in Bamberg. It’s a very charming place and we had fun walking around and discovering it. The weather might be a bit cold, but we didn’t mind. We took a train from Munich and it was a two-hour ride on the ICE-fast train. I just slept through the whole trip. Our hotel is near the train station so we’ve been walking around the town. The old town is brilliant, with all the canals, that’s why Bamberg is known as “Little Venice”. We visited their Residenz museum, very impressive, shame we couldn’t take photos inside. We also took their “hop on hop off” tourist bus when we couldn’t walk up the hills anymore. All in all, we enjoyed our holiday, our smile this week. So, what made you smile this week?

In Batanes, we came across Savidug Idjang where the ruins of the ancient Ivatan’s fortress lie. Idjang is synonymous to a fortress. They use this fortress as a refuge during battles.
This is Rex, one of our three tortoises. Our tortoises like patrolling our garden!
The Ivatan people of Batanes always leave their houses open when they work in the fields and other places.

Hello everyone! Still in Batanes, but no tour today. Our free day – yay! We woke up late, had a sumptuous breakfast and basically just took it easy. We walked along the street, had some coffee, went to their church, bought some souvenirs, went to have our nails done, found a nice restaurant to have late lunch/ early dinner and went back to the lodge. We watched television at night and talked to the receptionist and other friendly staff. All in all, we really had a great holiday in Batanes.
