Fire and ice and all things nice… Discover Iceland!

Iceland, a country of extreme contrasts

Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts. Widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, it is home to both some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and some of the most active volcanoes in the world. Iceland is also the land of light and darkness, where long summer days with near 24-hours of sunlight are offset by short winter days.

Go to Gourmet Heaven: the Pearl is one of Reykyavik’s most striking buildings, a futuristic structure made of glass and steel.

Look up the lights:with friendly local guides and everyone gets cups of warming hot chocolate, their photo taken under the lights, and a look at the stars through a telescope.

The Blue Lagoon is an oasis relaxation and probably the most famous touristic attraction.

Never so close from Algéria, stay safe.

Gastronomy has particular taste from what europeans are used to and the term “tagine” is always on the menus. Do not expect to find alcohol unless in a all-inclusive resorts, however the mint tea will be always offered to you,several times a day! Mint tea is the welcome drink.

What regards religion and its culture there are a few things that you have to take into consideration to show respect and be respectable even though the people are used to tourists as tourism is the main source of income.Dress properly: biquinis are used inside the resort and close to the swimming pool. Ladies, if you want to show off try another country. Shoulders covered and legs as well.This is just an advice.

Marocco is affordable for everyone and it has great connections from Madrid – Spain (Ryanair los cost often at the price of 20 EUR and never much more thank 150 EUR). You cannot miss the souks, the camel rides and the desert tours.Tips are welcome and if you can please do so.Unemployment there is high and wages are close to miserable.If by chance you need a good guide, please leave a comment and I’ll connect you with a reliable touristic professional guide with great Spanish and French Knowledge.There are many good international hotel chains but mainly in Marrakesh. Great people make great destinations and Morocco deserves more than a visit.Travel as much as you can and visit Morocco!

Bellagio, where my spirit breaths

Bellagio, Italy

“Exploring” the Lake from the lake

In 1826, with the launch of the steamboat called “Lario”in Como, the first regular boat service started off. At presente, the hydrofoils and big motor shops that leave very frequently from the piazza Cavour, touch the main centres of the lake and go as far as Colico. Gambling – Tables, Culture and Cordiality.

An ” exclave” in the Swiss territory, whose origins date back to far-off times, when it was given as a gift by Totone, a Longobarda land-owner, to Saint Ambrogio’s Church in Milan in 777.

Bellagio, where the artists and the monarchs used to reside

This wonderful place has seen the passage of many personages who,with the passing of time, have become almost legendary:kings and empresses, writers, poets and musicians.Franz Liszt for example composed here his ” Dante Sonata”, as stated by a plate along the main stairway Serbelloni.

Lombardia! Start in Milan

24 hours in Milan is better than nothing…do you agree?
