With my limited spare time in Copenhagen I made nearly a photo rally. I switched to double quick mode and sprinted through the city to see as much as possible. On that day, I think it was one of the hottest days in Denmark and I was completely sweaty after this journey. Again I was surprised by the iPhone 🙂
If you drive through the Maltese streets you cannot overlook the balconies, mostly each house has one. Those are relicts of the Moorish Epoch, they are built that women can hide from to be seen by the streets while at the same time they could observe the street scenes. Also the balconies with open windows provide a better circulation of fresh air in the Maltese houses, because windows are often only on the front and on the back of the flats.
I think even each child knows this building, if not by name then by appearance. It belongs to the top 5 of the most photographed buildings in the world. If you are standing in front of it, it’s not so easy to get a good composition. The whole place is crowded with tourists, self-proclaimed guides, self-proclaimed photographers 🙂 and securities and every one is shooting photos. So welcome to Taj Mahal..
From Tokyo Skytree you get an unbelievable view of the whole city from all directions. It is a never ending flow of streets, lights, houses and buildings until horizon is reached. It was very crowded at the picture windows because everyone wanted to get photos from this incredible views.
I have been at this agrirutrismo location in Sicily before noon, so I had to step back a bit with the offered wine tasting. There has been two kinds of red and white wine, olive oil and Sicilian with bread to try. After tasting it was possible to buy the products to enjoy them at home. 🙂
At Swarovski’s Crystal World you can enter a crystal room which is completely built from glass. It’s formed as a dome with thousands of glass elements in different sizes and dimensions which mirrors visitors on hundreds of glass pieces throughout this room.
