DTLA. Arts District - Part II.

DTLA. Arts District – Part II.

Urban Bigfoot by Ron English

Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles, California

LA arts distric mural

After seeing its northern part around Traction Avenue (here’s my post about it) I wandered through the Arts Distric, along Alameda, Palmetto, Matteo and Industrial Streets. I passed lots of street art and huge murals, walked along empty streets and along many warehouses, found cute little cafes and shopped at Urban Radish Market.

NYC. Roosevelt Island.

Roosevelt Island NYC

Queensboro Bridge

While in NYC last March I choose to visit Roosevelt Island, a 2-miles-long island which lies in the East River between Manhattan and Queens.

Roosevelt Island Tram

To get to the island you can either take the subway to the Roosevelt Island stop (F train) or take the Roosevelt Island tram at 59th Street / 2nd Avenue. The tram crosses the East River next to the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge and the view from its cabins are…

Los Angeles. Union Station.

Union Station

Union Station LA

Union Station is by far one of the most beautiful train stations I’ve ever been to. From the outside it looks more like a church, surrounded by tall palm trees, but the true beauty is inside: the old waiting room with chandeliers, terracotta tiles and marble, leather seats and high windows. Union Station opened in 1939 and is known as the last of the Great Railway Stations built in the United…

Italy. Bologna.

About one year ago I scored cheap tickets to Italy (with RyanAir from Frankfurt-Hahn) and spent 6 days exploring Bologna, Florence, Pisa, La Spezia and Cinque Terre. Bologna was my first stop and even though it’s without a doubt a beautiful city, I didn’t really enjoy it. Mostly because it was just the wrong time of the year to visit: it was often deserted, since the locals had left the city…

Part of it is the Cypress Swamp Boardwalk: “a 400-acre (1.6 km) Bald Cypress swamp, which is the largest remaining remnant of a cypress strand that once separated the pine flatwoods in the east from the Everglades marshes. A boardwalk…

Whenever we’re in Lagos we’ll make it a priority to spend a day at Praia do Camilo. This small beach is located between the famous Praia Dona Ana and the lighthouse at Ponta da Piedade and offers everything you dream of when visiting the West Algarve: clear water, golden cliffs and spectacular rock formations. About 200 steps lead down to the main part of the beach, a small tunnel through…
