but it is in winter
Cuba for an ordinary tourist is a dream, a paradise, where all romantics want to visit. Firstly, this country is very far away, and this is not Egypt or Cyprus, where you can easily get a tour at a bargain price, it is expensive, but unusual. Secondly, it’s cool, because in most of Cuba it is associated with cigars, rum and beautiful girls. And thirdly, it’s really very beautiful there, beautiful places simply fascinate all tourists.
And so my dream came true in the summer of 2014, I spent two weeks on the island, which will forever remain in my memory.
My husband and I traveled on our own, preliminarily studied all the sights, travel features, carefully collected information. However, as it turned out later, we were not prepared because we had missed so many details.
We flew on a Moscow-Havana flight. Continue reading
Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Dry Cinnen (Italian: Tre Cime di Lavaredo, German Drei Zinnen, letters. “Three prongs, three peaks”) – a mountain range in the Sesten Dolomites. Until 1919, Tre Cime di Lavaredo served as part of the natural border between Austria and Italy, and today they divide the province of South Tyrol of the Bolzano region and the province of Belluno of the Veneto region and still serve as a “linguistic” border between German and Italian-speaking ethnic groups.
The highest point of the massif is Chima Grande (Grosse Zinne) with a height of 2999 m. (Cima Grande Italian / Grose Zinne, German). It is located between two other main peaks – Chima-Ovest (Westlichen-Zinne) (German: Westlichen Zinne, Italian. Cima Ovest, 2973 BC) and Chima-Piccol (Kleinen-Zinne) (German. Kleinen Zinne, Italian: Cima Piccola, 2857 m.s.). In addition to these noticeable stone columns, smaller peaks with their own names are distinguished in the massif, among them Punta di Frida (Italian: Punta di Frida, 2,792 m.s.) and Torre-Prois (German: Preusturm (former. German Kleinste Zinne), Chima-Piccolissima (Italian: Cima Piccolissima), 2700 nm Continue reading
This was not our first trip to Tenerife, but this year we were surprisingly unlucky with the weather. We were on the island in the first half of July, there were no completely sunny days, the sea was not too hospitable, it often rained. Basically, the picture outside the window was like this:
We stayed at the Sandos San Blas Nature Resort & Golf 5 * hotel near the town of Los Abrigos. The hotel is not ready to praise or scold much, but the well-heated pools were a big plus, thanks to which our vacation did not go completely without swimming. In terms of accessibility to beaches, this location is only suitable for those who, like us, rent a car. The popular Los Cristianos and Las Americas can be reached quickly by the hotel shuttle, but without a car it would still be inconvenient. Continue reading
