It’s a city of medieval houses and narrow cobblestoned streets with a very romantic and cozy waterfront and lovely parks – just perfect for a stroll. And there is always the right time to clink glasses with the locally grown sparkling wine! In December the famous Christmas market takes place and the beautifully lit old town makes just the perfect backdrop for impressive memories of a lovely visit.

This place is special to me because I have moved to Trier from Moscow 2 years ago and i have totally fallen in love with this place. Trier is over 2,000 years old – making it the oldest city in Germany with an astonishing 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There is a lot to see in downtown Trier with traces of the Roman times almost everywhere you look. The city is often referred to as the “Rome of the North” because it served as the key city of the Roman northern territories. There are many beautiful vineyards located around Trier which are perfect for taking walks. But there’s plenty of nature inside the city of Trier as well. Old trees rise among the historic buildings, casting welcome shade in the summertime. Trier has a special atmosphere all of its own. It is an ancient city but young at heart.

Rothenberg is such a cute town. Since I walked in there, the cute houses on the street tell me all the story in Rothenberg. The stone road, the small solder figure, and It is just like walking in a fairy tale world. I just can't stop look at the houses.

This is what the place I grew up in looked like when I was 7 years old. There was a river and right across the river was my elementary school. It was such a beautiful place that artists always stayed there for hours to paint it on canvas. As kids we loved watching them work with oils. I can go on and on about this place, and if you are interested in the rest of the story please visit my blog, I'm going to do a post about it tonight. www.mirdinara.blogspot.com
Sapporo, Japan is known as the snowiest major city in the world. Rather than simply enduring this dubious honor, we are always on the lookout for positive uses for snow-- for recreation as well as for industrial purposes. "Blessed by Snow" is an official motto of Sapporo.
No time is bad time to be in Big Sur. You can go in January to see the whales, December to see the monarch butterflies, May to see the wildflowers, or anytime to see the redwoods, waterfalls, mountaintops, seals, tide pools, beaches and sunsets.
