The Market Square

The map of Bruges

I think that cities are like human beings, because they show their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. I’ve been to the city of Bruges so many times, but I keep on falling in love with this historical city. Continue reading

One of the highlights of our trip to Kenya, was going on a safari to Tsavo East National Park. It is one of the oldest and largest African safari parks in Kenya. It was established in 1948 and covers 11,747 square kilometres. Its close proximity to the beaches and tourist attractions around Kenyan coast region, makes it an ideal safari destination for those who would like to combine.

Naturally being the  home to the Big 5, is what brings the majority of tourists here. There are a whole range of different ways to enjoy this spectacular reserve, from self-drive safaris to guided tours. There are diverse Kenyan wild animals which  includes the large families of giraffes, gazelles, hartebeests  and zebras, as well as the Big 5 (buffaloes,  elephants, lions, rhinos and leopards).

To begin exploring Paris, we decided to take a boat tour along River Seine that is in the heart of Paris. Seeing the romantic city of Paris by boat is on the must-do list of most visitors. The cruise allowed us to take in many of the highlights of the city from the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame, among many others. During the boat trip, we were also able to see quaysides, bridges, banks and the most beautiful Avenue in Paris. This helped me to understand the layout of the city.

Paris has 37 bridges. My most memorable experience in this one Continue reading

On our recent trip to  Kenya, we  had a chance to visit one of the top sights in Nairobi; Giraffe Centre. It is located in Karen suburbs, around 20 kilometers away from the city centre. This sanctuary offers the chances to meet, feed and learn more about giraffes. There is a small charge for entry but no limit on the amount of time that you can spend with the giraffes. I also loved the fact that there is no prior booking required.

The staff gave us clear instructions and  they were particularly welcoming and encouraging towards children. Continue reading

We arrived here after 9 a.m and the queue to get in was horrendous. Unfortunately, we could not buy tickets online because they were only available at the ticket office located at the entrance. After queuing for some time, we finally bought the combined tickets to the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion. Contrary to the majority of museums, the Greek museums don’t charge minors.

The Palace of Knossos is located  5 km southeast of the city of Heraklion, on the Kephala Hill. It is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site in Crete. Continue reading

This island is celebrated for its natural beauty and delightful climate. It is a major tourist attraction for the seekers of sunny beaches. Many of its beaches are gravel, not sand.
