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…

During my stay in South Florida last Marchwe visited the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge near Boynton Beach in Palm Beach County. 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.

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…

[Above are a few pictures of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown LA, which I took on my first evening in LA back in March.
