Inspired by Jeanne Baret, a botanist who was the first woman to have completed a voyage of circumnavigation of the globe. She disguised as a man to be able to travel on the ship with her husband! During her trips she discovered the plant species Bougainvillea.
The park of the monsters is located in Bomarzo and was built in 1552. The set of monuments is located on the slopes of a natural amphitheater, and is characterized by whimsical and grotesque shapes among the trees, flower beds and streams. Excessive sculptures carved out of rock, of terrible or absurd aspect, that represent mythical characters and fantastic beings.
Beautiful Island... Good times never if end if they are remembered. Beach rules, wake up smiling, flips flops are the mandatory, feel the breeze, take long walks, soak up the sun, make a splash, hang up to towel, leave the sand at the beach, relax and unwind, watch of sunrise, ride the waves, kick back, build sandcastle, cold beer with good company, laughs, fall in love, enjoy each moment, look at the stars, be grateful, the life is two days.
I have only visited Iceland once back in 2019 and honestly it was enough to know how much I would love this country. We visited Reykjavík and saw all the sights from the Hallgrimskirkja Church to the Blue Lagoon. I would definitely love to go back one day and explore the whole island. So this map represents how much beauty this country holds and the places I would love to visit one day.
Our lockdown restrictions prohibit us from walking much further than 1km from our homes but luckily within 1km of our home is a village square with a 9th century Byzantine Church so we walk there. I added some Greek place names to give a vague sense of the location and how it feels to walk through the winding streets and tumbled up houses of Geroskipou.
Situated just a few miles from the beautiful South Wales coast, we are lucky enough to have many lovely walks on our doorstep. No need for the car, in just minutes we can be surrounded by green space, walking through peaceful woodland or the picture postcard village of Merthyr Mawr, with its ancient church and cluster of perfect thatched cottages. Over the 15th century 'Dipping Bridge' where the farmers would drive their sheep through the two parapets into the river for an annual dip - there is always something new to see. The much newer 'Swing Bridge' will take you on to the picturesque river crossing at Ogmore Castle - still marked by a series of ancient stepping stones that you can cross if the tide is right! If the river is too high, we can walk on to Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes - home to the 'Big Dipper' the highest dune in Wales and if we're feeling particularly energetic, a walk through the dunes with all its wildlife, will see us reach the sea at Ogmore-By-Sea and a much-deserved cuppa, before picking a route for the walk home! The kids love these places! Look them up - they do exist - I wish I had time to squeeze in more! Next time!
