The Benefits Of Traveling The World

There are numerous advantages and benefits that come from exploring and traveling the world. My perspective on traveling is that it enhances my life, educates me and empowers me! Traveling enables me to gain confidence and knowledge that is beyond my reach (and no looking at a video, webpage or magazine does not have the same effect – presence and immersion matters). Before traveling, I do tend to have doubts about the places or people that I am going to encounter in a strange city or the open road. However I do believe that once you gain exposure and become accustomed to new places and cultures, you will realize that all human beings are all the same regardless of the skin colour or background (with a few exceptions along the way!). The more I travel, the more open minded I become as my perceptions change with the new surroundings.

Pantheon Rome

I stumbled upon the Pantheon in Rome located at the Piazza della Rotonda whilst sightseeing along the Trevi Fountain.  The Pantheon was erected as a Roman temple and soon after it was sanctified as a catholic church.   This is a free entry admission with opening hours between 8:30 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday.  Don’t miss out!!

London Eye

London Eye in South Bank of London City UKI arrived at the London Eye after walking through Queens Walk of Southbank, London.  It’s true what they say about this being the tallest ferries wheel, which offers fascinating views over the whole of London.  The wheel is situated by the western section of Jubilee Gardens along the Southbank River Thames.  It is between the Westminster Bridge and the Hungerford Bridge, so you surely cannot miss it.

Gracia Barcelona Cafes

Gracia Barcelona Cafe CafesWhile touring around Gracia in Barcelona, I found some reasonable priced cafes to relax and have some coffees during day time (or drink some wine or beer at night time).  

Cafe del Teatre 

This cafe is located in the intersection of Carrer de la Perla and Carrer de Torrijos.  Majority of customers in this cafe are the friendly young crowd.  This would be a good place to lounge prior to going out with friends.  It is cozy and it definitely has soothing music to go with it in the background while you enjoy your drinks.  It’s simple and an affordable cafe.

Cafe del Sol

This cafe is located at the bohemian Placa del Sol.  It is a lively cafe crowded with young locals, expats and tourists and flourished so well in the attractive Gracia neighborhood.  Occasionally it has a DJ playing soothing tracks.  Drinks and tapas are quite affordable which naturally goes well with the beautiful Spanish atmosphere.

Holiday in Venice, Italy

Holiday in Venice ItalyAh...Venice, known as very romantic and an ideal destination for lovers.  I definitely think that it comes second after Paris being the most romantic city you will ever visit:)  There seems to be an everlasting amount of streets considering that vehicles or bicycles are not permitted on most of the streets and bridges in Venice.  In the old days Venice was known as the city of lovers and assassins. It seems like the streets and alleyways were deliberately
