Pennsylvania, Gettysburg Battlefield Resort

What a great way to teach history to the children! Go to gettysburg camping and step back in the time. There you live on the historic border between North and South, can visit battlefield and the cemetary for the soldiers, take part at the events of the Gettysburg Battlefield Resort that want to remember American Civil War.

Well, Gettysburg Battlefield Resort is not only about the war. You can explore Pennsylvania countryside and enjoy it's beauty during your stay at rv camping gettysburg where you will find a park, a river and a lake, all the possibilities for fishing and relax on water and walking trails. Maybe you prefere swimming pool? You will find it there too. The stay in the Gettysburg Battlefield Resort is very funny because there are many different attractions and things to do.

Gettysburg Battlefield Resort is the best pa rv camping. It is situated not far from different important and very interesting cities. Even the nation's capital is only 1 hour and half of drive away from it. But you will find eveything you can desire near your RV. A store and cafè and ice-creams for your children. To feel it more relaxing, they offer 3 days and 2 nights of free camping.

Where The Sun Is Shining

It's the holy truth: I can't live so more. Rains, rains, rains, rains. Cold and dark. For months and month. Oh my dear god, could you give us at least some days of sun her? Only some days. 4 or 5. I would stay all them in the yard, on the sun. I want only to feel it's rays on my face.

So I asked where is the life not so dark as in Italy this year? And somebody answered me: there is a happy place on this Earth, where the weather is always good, the temperature of the air is around 20-25°C and the sun is shining 340 days a year. The name of this place is Azores.

Sincerely, I don't believe that it is really so as people describe. If you ask me, I will say you that Italy is -generally- a sunny country too. Generaly. But not this year. From other side, it's unpossible that islands in the middle of the ocean have always good weather...
But... I would like to visit this beautiful place. Look at these photos:

Donostia-San Sebastián

And if we began to speak about Basque's part of the world, I wanted to share with you the new interpretation of the Atlanti's myth. They say, Basques are the direct discendants of the people that went away from the Atlantis after the catastrophe happend with the island. (Read my post The Ghost Of Atlantis too) There ae different "signs" that it could be really so. The particular culture, language, some similar sides with the other people living on the Atlantic coast just in the places the habitants of Atlantis could reach with their boats...

On the photos one of the Basque's cities, Donostia-San Sebastián.
So beautiful... I would like to visit it.

Museums Of Modern Art

As I told you before, I learned to appreciate modern art when I visited different specialized museums in Finnland.I was very impressed by visiting them because there were interesting forms not only of paintings but sculptures and other creations too. I thought, many of them seemed to be part of the nature that was around them.

One of the persons that collected paintings of the modern painters was Solomon R. Guggenheim. When he had a very great collection, he wanted to show it to other persons and created the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation to manage his collection. This foundation has today different museums all over the world. The main site is New York (first photo The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). It was the second museum of his foundation. On the second photo is the other museum of the Foundation, in Bilbao, Spain.

Knights Templar Places In Europe

You surely will remember my post To Visit Places Of Teutonic Order where I began to write about the places connected with the Knights of military Monastic Orders.

There were not many of them in the history. Knights of St. John, Knights of St. Thomas as the less known. The most known and that you can find so much to read in all languages are Knights Templar.
The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar or the Order of the Temple (Wikipedia)
By the way, did you know, that these orders included nuns too? I did not know about it. I thought, they were only for men...

Well, if you want to visit places related to templars, you have go in France first of all. There are many misterious places and castles in Italy too. You can find them in UK as well. Very interesting places are in Puglia, a province of Italy, where you can visit private churches and strange castles with nothing except the external wall.

On this photo is the templar's monastery in Tomar, Portugal

What Are Our Men Looking For

In this difficult for many persons period when everybody looks not only for cheap tours and flights but often remains home, touroperators adopt every modern psychological tool to give to the tourists all they can desire. So the surveys are very popular. One of these wanted to discover what men and women look for when they plan their vacations.

The result was surprizing in one sense.

Yes, men and women want relax, when they go in vacation.
But men want
1/ sex
2/ sightseeings
3/ sport
4/ parties

women are interested in
1/ sightseeings
2/ shopping
3/ sex
4/ sport
(parties wanted less than 1% of women)

Both men and women say bad weather and bad hotel are the reasons of the ruined vacation.

Dear women, so don't believe your husband if he wants to go alone in vacation!!!

New Laws To Remember Before You Depart

There are many stories about tourists that had great problems and even finished in a prison because they did not respect "special" laws of this or that country. I wrote about it some times in this blog and continue this theme while I found some new information about laws that were accepted in the last period or will be accepted in short time.

If you plan to visit Dubai, you have to know bikini, short rocks, public kisses and alcohol will be forbidden there from this summer.

Finally, if you want to go in Bangladesh without money and hope to live begging there, you have to know that it is forbidden now in this country.

Cheap Flights With Travel.com.au

My friend told me about flights to Australia when she called me last time. He daughter has to go there to visit her friend's family next month. My friend likes the boy but she is worried about the long flight her daughter has to stand to reach that continent. And she told me about the prices. It's clear, they looked for something more convenient, specially that the girl has to travel with her child. If I have to tell you my opinion, I'm afraid of so long flights, but my friend told me that it has to be not only convenient but comfortable too.

They booked the flight with Travel.com.au, one of the Australia's oldest travel websites, specialising in international flights and overseas holiday bookings and because it is not the first time they do it, they feel sure that everything has to be all right. Interesed, I visited the site and found different interesting offers, clear and easy navigation and simple to find information about everything you would ask them.

Many persons want to find cheap flights for their travels and Travel.com.au offers different possibilities to choose from. There are gift vouchers and hot deals, new offers of this week and cheap flights on sale. As said, while the navigation is very clear, these flights are very easy to find and to book. And to resolve any problem if you have them with experts that you can reach in different ways listed in the site.

To See In Russia

There were many virtual travels in Russia for me this week. In one of them I knew about "new russian style" in architecture and could confront 2 of the most important, I think, rapresentants of it. It can be that I'm not right in the definition. On the first photo is the original russian stile, on the second photo the "new" :-) On the first photo is the temple built in 1554 (the period was large but I give the rough date). This cathedral is situated in Moscow.

The second, in Sankt Petersburg, finished in 1907, wanted to imitate the first.

Suspended Bridges

Suspended bridges are relatively common solution to reach the other bank of the river or similar. Personally, I was sure they are used only in the mountains. But in this collection of photos you can see that it's not so. In any case it's an interesting entertainment for a tourist. Specially if the bridge is like that on the second photo.

Ecologically Pure Countries

Italian ecological offices control every year the water of the sea near main cities and touristic centers. It is important to maintain higher the number of visits of tourists. "The prices are relatively high but we offer best conditions of the nature."

I read that there are similar list of the ecologically pure countries. There is The Environmental Performance Index according to 25 criteria and 140 countries were controlled to know what are the best from ecological point of view.

The first of them was Swiss, than Sweden, Norway, Costa Rica, Colombia, New Zealand, Japan, Croatia, Albania, Israel.

Unfortunatelly there is not Italy among these 10 countries. Well, once it will be there. Maybe.
