Hello everyone! Just got back from our five-day Malta trip. It was our second time to visit Malta and we really had a great time. Here’s our view from our balcony.
On the first day we walked around Valletta, its capital. The walled city was established in the 1500s on a peninsula by the Knights of St. John, a Roman Catholic order. It’s known for museums, palaces and grand churches. Baroque landmarks include St. John’s Co-Cathedral, whose opulent interior is home to the Caravaggio masterpiece “The Beheading of Saint John.”
St John’s Co-Cathedral is a gem of Baroque art and architecture. It was built as the conventual church for the Knights of St John. The Grand Masters and several knights donated gifts of high artistic value and made enormous contributions to enrich it with only the best works of art. This church is till this very day an important shrine and a sacred place of worship. It is also a venue for cultural events.
We went on a harbour cruise which started from The Strand at Sliema. This trip took about two hours. First the boat visited Marsamxetto Harbour and then it went out in the open sea and from there it entered the Grand Harbour. Magnificent views and scenes that were very difficult to forget. Amazing!
I have to do a second post for the rest of our holidays. For now, have a lovely week!
Four years ago, I went on a tour with my friend in college. I flew to her place and together we joined the tour. Güngor was our tourist guide and he was a very good guide. We started in Antalya, travelled to Cappadocia, then other parts of Turkey and back to Antalya after a week. The rest of the group stayed there for another week for their sea/beach holiday. The holiday was a success!
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 The Beginning Man Tried Ascending To Heaven via The Tower Of Babel. Now He Tries To Elevate His Existence Using Hallucinogenic Drugs. And, Since The 20th Century, He Continually Voyages Into Outer Space Using Spacecrafts. Prayer Thru Christ Is The Only Way To Reach Heaven.
Don't decide to get hurt, just go along with all of this knowing there's nothing I can do but keep going. I am pushed and pulled by forces and I know that where I am is a place I will look back on, with nostalgia, with a very intense memory.
