Padova lies about on hour drive from Venice in Northern Italy. It is very easy to reach Padova from the A4 motorway and we just followed the signs to the main square in Padova. We arrived in Padova, Italy on a very hot day in August. We did whatever we could to escape the heat. Even though we didn’t have much time to walk around we enjoyed Padova, Italy very much. The amazing Pratto della Valle square fascinated us with all many and beautiful sculptures.
Anglesey Abbey is closely connected to Cambridge because it’s only about 15 minutes driving distance. What is strange about Anglesey Abbey is the word “abbey”. Judging by the name alone you expect Aglessey to be some ruins of an old Abbey. However, it’s far from the truth.
Italy is a large country. You can drive for many hours to reach certain famous tourist destinations. It is really cool then, when you are able to find some cool places to stop on the way. While Genoa is a famous tourist attraction in its own right, we only had time to treat it as a rest stop on our way to the French Riviera. We were only able to spend about three hours in Genoa, but we were really impressed by how the city and the port looked. Read on to see some cool travel pictures from Genoa, Italy.
When visiting a major tourist attraction, most people only see the “big” things. It's understandable because not everyone has the luxury of spending a lot of time in a great place. However, most tourist attractions have a lot more to offer than what one can visit in a few hours. Cambridge, England is no exception to the rule. While the town is full of tourist buses that come for a day trip from London, Cambrige yields it's beauty to those who want to slow down and explore the city. Take a look at this beauty in my travel gallery from my first encounter with Cambrige, England.

The first article is just a gallery of pictures from my first trip to London, England. In the future I will add valuable tips for visiting London, England.
Oso Flaco Lake is a hidden natural gem. Oso Flaco lake is hidden in the Pismo Dunes Natural Preserve and it is surrounded by farm land. We loved our visit at the lake and I wanted to share a few photos of Oso Flaco Lake.
Buellton is many times confused with Solvang, California. On the one hand, there is good reason for them to be confused simply because they are very close to one another. On the other hand, Solvang and Buellton are very different based on the tourist attractions they both offer. While Solvang provides great European architecture and feel while Buellton is a small California town right by the freeway. Regardless of the differences, Buellton makes a great rest stop if you’re driving on the 101 freeway and you want your family to take a break from driving. Read on to find out what to see in Buellton.
Avila Beach is a jewel of the California Central Coast. It is hidden in the San Luis Obispo Bay and if you don’t go there on purpose, you will never see it. Avila Beach is well hidden from the 101 freeway by a beautiful forest and some very tall hills. These hills provide amazing views of the ocean and of San Luis Obispo Bay.
Pismo Beach is one of those hidden tourist jewels that is within easy reach but bypassed many times by tourists. The California coast is just beautiful off the 101 freeway in the Pismo Beach area. The fact that many larger tourist attractions like San Luis Obisbo and Hearst Castle are so close, most tourists just pass by Pismo Beach on their way up north. What a mistake! Pismo Beach is just an amazing stop even if you have only few hours to spare. Pretty soon I'll post my detailed Pismo Beach travel guide, but for now enjoy more pictures from Pismo Beach.
