Sometimes referred to as America’s oldest theme park, really did start out life as a berry farm – in fact, it’s where the boysenberry was first developed. In the 1930s, Mrs. Knott opened a restaurant there and her husband built an Old West Ghost Town attraction to entertain the customers. That Ghost Town still stands today, now with animated interiors and a range of characters to meet. It’s an appealing place for families to explore and small children will love it. There’s now lots more to explore at Knott’s, however, and enough variety to deliver thrills for visitors of any age.
A wild ride
Many people now know Knott’s best for its roller coasters, which offer some of the wildest rides on the West Coast. There are more of these than at nearby Disneyland and the lines are generally shorter, though guests should be aware that they sometimes have to close in bad weather. That doesn’t happen too often – it is California – and when it does, compensation is usually offered, as the staff at Knott’s look after their guests really well. (more…)
Visiting historic places like Cordoba was truly a great experience for me! I never thought my dream to visit this city will come true! Indeed, I was there and explored the city! There was an unexplainable happiness especially when I went inside this famous Mezquita, also known as the Great Mosque of Cordova.
First of all, let me introduce Cordoba. It is a city situated in the center of Andalucia in Spain. The city is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir river. It is a beautiful city with a great cultural reference point in Europe. If you want to explore a mixture of diverse cultures, this city is perfect to visit. The ancient city of Cordoba is declared a World Heritage Site.

It was almost two years now since I visited Cordoba. Thanks to my friend, Joy who accompanied me in that 7-day trip in Spain particularly in the region of Aldalucia. Or else, I won’t be able to visit it because I have to pay an expensive extra charge if I will be alone in a hotel-room. (more…)
Eivissa, Ibiza’s official name in Catalan is the third largest of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. It is one of the famous party islands of this country and a popular tourist destination not only for party goers but also for holiday spenders of all kinds. It is very popular for its nightlife especially in its island’s capital, the Ibiza town and and other parts like Saint Antony. I would love to surely experience one of the most interesting Ibiza holidays in the future.
There are a lot of things to do and to experience in this beautiful island. A large part of the island is included in the list of World Heritage Sites. Interesting sites to see include the old part of Ibiza Town, the Passeig de ses Fonts in San Antonio, Es Vedra, the mystical island rock off Ibiza’s west coast and a must to visit is the Cova de Can Marçà in Puerto de San Miguel, the biggest natural caves in Ibiza. It is nice to spend time and relax in one of its gorgeous beaches like the Bassa Beach and Cala salada at north of San Antony de Portmany.
The island is very accessible by plane from most of the major European cities like London, Brussels, Barcelona, Rome, Amsterdam, Nuremberg, Berlin and so many more. There are also travel agencies and travel sites online who are offering cheap holiday packages to Ibiza.
For sure, a holiday to Ibiza island will always be a memorable and exciting one. I might see you there!
I am finally back here to give you a little update. How I wish I can give you travel updates here everyday but due to limited time, I guess, I just can’t do it. I am glad, I am back here now!
Let me share some travel stories I had last winter and I am talking about my travel in the Republic of Ireland. I would say, “Ireland is one of the most beautiful states I visited in Europe. There is something in this place that makes me appreciate its beauty.”
The Cahergall Stone Fort. It is a massive stone fort, built around 600AD, which can be found close to Cahersiveen, County Kerry. The forts internal diameter is approximately 25 metres, the outer walls are 5 metres thick and rise to a height of 4 meters. Stairs are built into the inside face of the outer walls.
“Ireland also known as the Republic of Ireland, known in Irish as Poblacht na hÉireann, is a sovereign state in Europe occupying about five-sixths of the island of Ireland. The capital is Dublin, located in the eastern part of the island.” (more…)
This is quite a very interesting post especially if you wish to be a successful travel blogger… like me!… lolz! Check this out!
First you have to remember – before becoming a travel blogger or starting a travel blog, you should first become a regular and passionate traveler. In other case there is no point writing about stuff you did not experienced yourself. Second, go buy yourself a good camera and keep looking for unusual photo opportunities. Don’t forget to write about everything you see and experiences in your journal. Yes, you read it right, because sometimes we travel to places with no wifi (there are places with no internet in this world). Our memory is not a computer, so its better to write it down and then upload to the blog. (more…)
Are you ready to party? I believed most of you have the idea about this festival. I know many of you were there already having fun and simply enjoying the atmosphere during your visit. Oktoberfest is not only celebrated in Germany but in many places around the globe, it is also copied and celebrated. Why not?
The main entrance to the Oktoberfest held in Theresienwiese.
I just remember that this festival is coming so soon after I posted an image of German beer in my facebook profile. One of my friends commented that Oktoberfest is coming soon! Indeed, she is right!
I almost forgot that the world’s largest fair starts in late September and ends until the last weekend of October. Oh well, time truly pass-by so quickly! Around two weeks more to go and the Oktoberfest will be starting. The party is about to begin! Are you ready? (more…)
