Sunsets. There’s never one the same and it’s probably why we, photography enthusiasts, try to capture such fleeting moments as much as possible – wherever chance takes us. There are a number of places famous for their sunsets and luckily we’re able to see most of them published all over the internet. Some of them would be the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Santorini, in Greece, Yosemite National Park in California, Uluru in Australia, Angkor in Cambodia and Catania in Italy.
There was an article published once featuring the British population on their view about the most beautiful sunsets. Many have only recommended the above mentioned sights/sites and none of any in England. But, there are many wonderful places to view sunsets that the UK boasts too, a long list of them if you may. Some of them would be the Primrose Hill in London, Durham Cathedral in Durham, Port Talbot in Southwales, Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh, Crosby Sands in Liverpool and of course ride up the Manchester wheel for a spectacular view of the city.
One of the most overlooked (in my humble opinion) is Staithes, an unassuming seaside village in the Scarborough Borough of North Yorkshire in England. It’s part of the large stretch of the coast of Yorkshire. The Staithes is easily accessible with flights to Leeds Bradford International Airport via Eastern airways then a train or two from there. Flights are available from London Gatwick, Bristol, Newquay, Plymouth, and other cities of the UK.
Las Palmas is the most popular city of the Canary Islands, and with a population of over 300,000 people, it is the ninth largest city in Spain. Nearly 20 per cent of the Canary Islands’ habitants live in Las Palmas, and it’s also the largest city of the European Union that lies outside of a continent. Located about 150 kilometers off the northwest coast of Africa, Las Palmas enjoys a sub-tropical climate, and according to some scientists, the most perfect climate in the world.
Founded as a city in 1478, Las Palmas was considered the only capital of the Canary Islands until the late seventeenth century and the birth of Santa Cruz. First named “Real de Las Palmas” by founder and head of Castilian forces Juan Rejon, Las Palmas has been a popular holiday destination for holidaymakers all over the world for hundreds of years.
Do you plan to visit Vienna? Can’t wait to see the Hofburg Imperial Palace, or the Ringstrasse? Then, before you go, there’s the important matter of changing currencies. Because, unless you’re already in the Eurozone, you’ll have to change whatever currency you use at home to euros before you arrive. US dollars won’t take you too far in Wien (as the city is known by the locals!)
Given that, when’s the best time to buy your euros? What’s set to influence the euro exchange rate? In this post, I want to look at 5 things set to rock the euro in the coming weeks. If you plan to visit Vienna soon, these could help you determine when the euro is weakest (and therefore, when you’re more likely to get the highest common currency total!)
The leaves around Vienna turned red, brown and yellow and it’s my perfect excuse to be out and about and take photos of nature’s changing colors. It’s also my first time to test the new camera, so I had double the excuse. ^_^
What perfect spot to take photos of than the Schönbrunn palace and grounds? Well, I had planned to visit anyway because I learned that Google will be conducting a conference, about analytics – what a blogger like me should learn about more. Sad to say, aside from not having a regular nanny to take care of the kids, I can’t really shell out a big amount of money, just like that. Tickets cost for early birds: € 290,- 1 day / € 580,- for both days. (List Price: € 390,- / € 680,-) !!!
So yeah, I went but perennially late me came up to the lobby only to get some information about the day’s event and what could be tomorrow’s. So lame!
