Exciting Sights With Pictures posted at Travel Welcome, saying, "London, England, is the world's most diverse and exciting city, truly a cosmopolitan town, with many things to see. History was written here. Literature, architecture and the arts flourished here. The wealth of the British Empire supported its glorious buildings, resplendent museums, and refined life. London has too much to cover in a single visit , 300 art museums, 100 theaters, and 17,000 protected historical buildings. There are more than 100 churches in the city, and about 1700 parks that cover 11% of London with green. There are even 7 royal palaces in London. From this cornucopia of beauty and heritage, here are a few memorable places to discover and things to see in London."
Angela Corrias writes Sa Corbula, going local in Cabras, Sardinia here on Eyeflare.com. This fantastic locavore restaurant in Sardinia will provide any visitor with a delicious meal, or the ingredients to cook one at home!
Cities everywhere else
Zhu presents Pão de Açúcar | Correr Es Mi Destino posted at Correr Es Mi Destino, saying, "The iconic Sugar Loaf is the best spot in Rio for the thrill of the cable-car ride, for the small hikes on top of the Urca mountain, for the views over Rio and for the sunsets. Lucky us, we got it all! Seeing all of Rio starting to light up beneath us was one of my best experience in the city."
Cherry Prior presents "A hop, a skip and a jump to Hobart" posted at Blog: Recent Pen Dragon, saying, "Food, beer, markets, bike riding...discovering what Hobart has to offer in a couple of days."
