Visit to Mainau Island in Baden-Württemberg

Image
I know for sure there are millions of flowers blooming again in Insel Mainau, the German name for Mainau Island. Spring flowers like tulips, narcissus and daffodils can still be found at this time of the year. Oceans of cheerful, sweet- scented, colourful spring flowers entice its outdoors again. From the end of March, more than a million tulips, narcissi and hyacinths line the Spring Avenue and fill the flowerbeds on Mainau Island.

I always love visiting parks and garden like Mainau Island. Last summer 2012, I had the chance to go there with a bus trip. It costs 35.00 Euros per person starting in Regensburg, Germany but the boat and entrance to the island is not included in that trip. As far as I can remember, we paid almost 30.00 Euros for the entrance and boat ride going to the island.

That was a wonderful and relaxing walk we had around the island  seeing the beauty of nature.

Seafood at Makino, Las Vegas

Image
Visiting would mean entertainment, gaming, shopping and dining! You will surely love it there! It was my second time in Las Vegas and my second time in this buffet restaurant in Makino.  I guess they have a chain  of restaurants  not only in Vegas but also in other cities in the US. The one that we always visited in  Premium Outlet. One of my fave outlets in Las Vegas.

What I love in this buffet restaurant is that, they serve seafood  the most.  Shrimps, fish, crabs, clams and also meat are present in their menu. Salads, drinks and variety of  desserts  are also included. I  would like to go back there again  once I visit Vegas in the future.


Visit to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Rome

Image
This is the dream-to-visit of many like I do! I guess I am one of those lucky ones who was able to visit the center of Catholicism, the Vatican City state. It was one of the most memorable trips I had last 2010.

The highlight of our visit to Vatican City was when we went up to the cupola of St. Peter's Basilica. As far as I can remember, it was quite a long line going there but with our patience and eagerness to climb to the top of the dome, we did succeeded in doing it. If you are on top of the dome, you can have a breath-taking view of Rome. Be careful if you want to go up there. If you are Claustrophobia or fear of having no escape and being closed in and Acrophobia, the fear of heights, going up to the Basilica's dome might not be suitable for you. You also need to climb around 320 steps to reach the cupola. I am not quite sure if there is an elevator that goes directly to it.

Las Vegas Holiday- Things To Do and To See

Image
Las Vegas, the dream city to visit of millions of tourists from around the world! Would you believe that I am one of those lucky ones who was able to visit the so-called "Entertainment Capital of the World". It was truly a great experience visiting Las Vegas. I could still remember boarding one of the Delta Air Lines Flights departing from Munich International Airport last May 2008. It was quite a long flight but it was it was all worth it.

I can recommend some things to you when visiting Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the Musical Fountains of Bellagio Hotel- This is one thing I love about this luxury hotel. Bellagio's Musical Fountain is simply awesome! The dancing fountains of Bellagio run every day on the half hour, and every quarter hour during the evening. Music played are from opera to pop to broadway and to classical. This is truly and amazing show and a must-to-see when in Las Vegas. You don't have to worry, you can watch it for free.

Visit to Weissenburg, Bavaria

Image
How are you doing folks? I hope that everything went out fine to everyone especially during the cold winter days in Europe. The past days were really very cold and until now it is still freezing cold outside. This is the time of the year where I just want to stay at home and do some things in the house which are left for some times. I am really very busy since the first day of February. I don't have much time to go online since there are a lot of things to take care offline.

Anyway, I am sharing an image taken during our visit in Weißenburg or Weissenburg. This was my first trip in 2012. It is a historical town in Bavaria, Germany. There are many ruins left by the Romans there. One of the good example is the remains of the Roman bath in this town.

A Visit to Verona, Italy

Image
It was a wonderful time we had as I and some good friends visited Verona last summer 2011. It was a long drive from Germany and was quite tiresome but we also had fun. It was truly a memorable experience.

Verona is a city in the region of Veneto in northern Italy. It is considered to be one of the major tourist destination in this part of Italy. Upon arriving this city, we took a walk around it especially in its old town. One of the sights we visited was the Arena in Verona, the ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans.

You have to know that due to its urban structure and architecture, Verona is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

I just selected randomly an image in my picture albums. I landed in this photo which was taken in Munich International Airport. Last December 2011, we boarded Iberia Airways going to Madrid, Spain. It was my first visit to Spain's capital city. For some reason that we never knew, Iberia was late that time. I think almost an hour late. At least we arrived safe to our destination and we also came back home safe with a lot of travel experiences during that 8-days holiday. We visited different places in Spain especially in the Andalusia region. I wish to visit that country in the future.
