The Temple of Olympian Zeus is also known as the Olympieion or Columns of the Olympian Zeus. It was built around 470 bc, the time the ancient... Continue Reading →

If you want to have a greater understand about the artist you should make a visit here. It is always extremely busy, and online booking is extremely advised.... Continue Reading →

Teotihuacan City

Visiting this site was a great experience, and made me wonder how on earth they had the technology to build such an amazing place. My trip to Teotihuacan was on a day tour. I thought this way would be better, and easier as I wouldn't have to be preoccupied with transport. Ruins on the way... Continue Reading →

Palacio de Bellas Artes

This place is incredible. The architecture is fascinating. The exterior of the building is primarily Art Nouveau and Neoclassical and the interior is primarily Art Deco, giving an interesting contrast.  Its first incarnation was built in the late 19th century, but it was soon decided to tear it down in favour of a more opulent...

Wilderness Paradise in Northeast Brazil

My recent trip to Brazil was a bit last minute. I couldn't get on the flight, and a two week holiday turned into a few days in Lisbon, and a week in the northeast of Brazil. It was quite an interesting time to be there. August is winter in Brazil, but in the northeast the... Continue Reading →

Turkish Delight: The Galata Tower

The Galata Tower is a beautiful medieval stone tower, and is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Istanbul. It was built in 1348 by the Byzantines, but destroyed by the Latin Crusaders in 1204 during the Sack of Constantinople. This tower is one of the symbols of Istanbul and is situated in Galata,...

The Cathedral, Shopping and Fashion in Bella Milano!

I have visited Milan many times, but never had the opportunity to visit the famous Cathedral, the Duomo. This enormous construction took nearly six centuries to complete. I think it's the biggest church in Italy. Just before I visited the cathedral, I walked through the very famous Piazza del Duomo. The famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele... Continue Reading →
