ANTELOPE CANYON

ESPAÑOL

In Page, Arizona, not in the Canyonlands like more than one person thinks, is perhaps the most beautiful and original canyon on Earth, a wonder of nature and a delight for any photographer. Compared to its neighbor the Grand Canyon, Antelope is small, but its beauty is extraordinary and captivating. All those pictures you have seen of a ray of sunlight illuminating a hole in a stone canyon, where taken here.  Continue reading “ANTELOPE CANYON”

In 2011 I had nor wide-angle neither selfie stick, so I could not get the whole of it in a single photograph

AROUND PAGE

ESPAÑOL

Page is a 7,000 people town in northern Arizona. By itself is not interesting, but the surrounding nature is spectacular, so it has become the main base for exploring the north of this state. Some of the most important natural monuments in the country are close enough for a day trip. Several are world famous, but most of the people don’t not know they’re here.  Continue reading “AROUND PAGE”

ITINERARY: GRAND CANYON, SOUTH RIM

ESPAÑOL

The following itinerary is intended to do by car, as I describe the main viewpoints that are reachable from the road. For those with little time, the view from the different viewpoints does not vary substantially. No need to stop at each one, even less in the ones that are nearby. From the further west point to the last in the east there are aproximatly 45 km.

Arizona

ESPAÑOL

  • Al was here in: February 2011. Wear warm clothes, althoug is in the desert and is pretty south, it snows in winter.
  • Number of days: 5 very intense days, I recommend at least 7.
  • My score: 5/5

It is in my opinion, the state with the most interesting nature of the, also in my opinion, country with the second most interesting nature (the first would be Australia, but to be fair, I know much more Australia than United States). Continue reading “Arizona”

Estados Unidos

United States

ESPAÑOL

That name reminds us of cities, and most international tourists come to visit them: San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles … it is truth that New York or Las Vegas are two of the most interesting and different cities I’ve ever visited, but make no mistake: THE BEST OF USA IS ITS NATURE, and international tourists usually skip it because they don’t even know it.  Continue reading “United States”

GETTING AROUND IN PARIS

ESPAÑOL

ON FOOT

As I always say, walking; in this city is especially recommended. You should walk as much as you can. Along with Prague, it is one of the few cities wherever you go, all the streets are worthwhile. From east to west, the main points of interest furthest one from each other are Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, distant 5 km away. Needless to say, not only the walk along the Seine is one of the most famous in the city, but also passes by most major attractions. From south to north, the interesting distant points are probably the catacombs and the Sacre Coeur, about 7 km away. If as a tourist you decide to go, you will find that the city still retains its unique harmonic beauty for those 7 km. Continue reading “GETTING AROUND IN PARIS”
