Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely weekend! 🙂
Up on escapecapades.com: A trip to the cozy little town of Litomerice, a few kilometers off Prague, one of the places in Europe where Jose Rizal lived. This is also where he met his life-long friend, Ferdinand Blumentritt. Click on the link for the full story.
Enjoy the time travel, and thanks for stopping by! 🙂
We have just arrived in France this weekend. On the road from Toulouse to my in-laws’ place, we were greeted by the smiliest, sunniest blooms of rows and never-ending rows of sunflowers. Scroll down for your viewing pleasure…Continue reading “Monday Mood: The Sunny Sunflowers”
Up on escapecapades: My recent trip to Beijing, trying some craft beer, their famous Peking Duck and of course, visiting the Forbidden City. I have also included some tips and reviews at the bottom of the page.
Cheers, and have a good weekend! 🙂
In my more recent travel posts (starting from this post about Melbourne), I shall be including short reviews of restaurants and hotels I’ve been to, to make my travel journals more useful to readers and followers.
From now on, I shall be posting all my travel blogs on escapecapades.com. See you there!
To the uninitiated, Iceland frightfully sounds a lot like some piece of land filled with a lot of ice. Well, it’s not true at all. There are actually more ice in Greenland (its neighbor country, a bit higher in latitude) than in Iceland. Although, it is true that I specifically went there to see the ice, I went during the summer so I only had the chance to see them on mountaintops and cliffs, and melting on glacial lagoons, thankfully. Yes, glacial lagoon, you read that right!
But it was not such a bad trip at all. Contrarily, I would say it was my best trip of all, to date. Iceland is just Amazing with a capital A. It has landscapes that boggle the mind and make you feel like you are in another planet. I mentioned this to my Icelandic friend, whom I visited while I was there, and she said in fact that the landscapes are more amazing in the highlands. Regretfully, we only visited the coastal areas, which have paved roads. We didn’t get a proper vehicle for rough roads and the highlands, unfortunately. She said the landscapes there are quite like the ones on the moon that there are actually astronauts training up there to get a feel of what it would be like on the moon. Is that Amazing or not?!
