Helsinki, Finland is not an unknown city, but its not one of those cities where you say, “Let’s go to Helsinki.” But when you do its adorable, really cold in the winter and quite nice in the summer. And it’s the 365th and final unfamiliar destination.
This place is just amazingly beautiful. And when you think the Abbey and the lake in front of it takes your breath way, a short drive or walk to the Victorian Walled Gardens, doubles you over.
It’s pretty strange albeit cool to be driving down the motorway in Ireland and see a sign for Barack Obama Plaza. Well, that’s what happened when I visited Ireland recently and my driver stopped there for tea. You should do the same when heading on the M7.
I’ve been to Valletta twice. Once a long time ago arriving by air and another about two years ago arriving by a cruise liner MSC Fantasia. Of course both times were epic as the place is so beautiful. The harbor itself does it for me. Not to mention the colors you see; its mostly brown and so soothing. Plus, its a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Florence, Italy, it’s a pretty amazing city, but most usually visit the other major cities like Rome and Milan and then they may consider alternate cities such as Florence. Lots of people do visit Florence so its not so unfamiliar, but certainly not as familiar as the major cities. Check i tout and let me know if you agree that it too is worth visiting.
Bologna, Italy. This city is old and charming. It seems like a lot is going on when you arrive and that’s cause there is. It has a lot of historical things to explore and where they can, they’ve preserved the old city walls. Make Bologna the destination the next time you’re in the northern part of Italy.
313. Oh my, why not? I was pretty amazed by what I saw when I visited. The Republic of San Marino is a principality within Italy. The center of the region sits at the top of a mountain. It will take you some time to explore it all, but its totally worth it. Did I mention the unprecedented view? Especially when it rains. Plus, its a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well.
