Kyushu (九州)

ESPAÑOL

Ignored by the vast majority of international tourists, recognized by the Japanese, the largest island to the west of the country has enough attractions for us to consider an exclusive trip to the area. Its temples can not be compared at all to those in central Honshu, but its nature is described as poetic, original and sometimes sensational: Continue reading “Kyushu (九州)”

PUERTO PRINCESA UNDERGROUND RIVER AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS IN SABANG

ESPAÑOL

Famous in the whole world since being one of the winners of the 7 Wonders of Nature contests in 2011, this river inside a cave, but with direct access to the sea, is a pleasant visit, although Continue reading “PUERTO PRINCESA UNDERGROUND RIVER AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS IN SABANG”

MALAGA PROVINCE

ESPAÑOL

I know this province very well, or should, because it is where I live. What better way to honor Andalusian day than to introduce one of the most interesting provinces of such an interesting country as Spain, where, in turn, there are not many who know what it offers apart from its coast: Continue reading “MALAGA PROVINCE”

SYDNEY

ESPAÑOL

  • Al was here: 2 days by the end of November 2005 and 5 by the end of February 2012.
  • Number of days needed: at least 2.
  • My score: 5/5.

I was not thinking of writing about Australia at this time in my life, but for my birthday I usually give myself a post from somewhere that makes me particularly excited, Continue reading “SYDNEY”

MENORCA

ESPAÑOL

  • We were here: 5 days at the end of September 2016.
  • Number of days required: at least 3.
  • My score: 4/5.

Few know that it belonged to United Kingdom during almost the entire eighteenth century, at the same time that Spain lost Gibraltar. Although the Caribbean island of Trinidad was given in exchange, we could say that we Spanish can still thank (and probably the only thing we may thank him) Napoleon for helping to recover it, because although similar to the others, Menorca is a small paradise that nobody should resign to.

Tasmania

ESPAÑOL

  • I was here one week between December 2005 and January 2006 and another one in March 2012.
  • Recommended number of days: at least one week.
  • My score: 4/5.

Although this island is more reminiscent of the neighboring New Zealand, it is a spectacular redoubt of unique nature in Australia. Continue reading “Tasmania”

MELBOURNE

ESPAÑOL

  • I was there 3 days at the end of December 2005 and 3 more in March 2012.
  • Recommended number of days: 2, plus one for the Great Ocean Road.
  • My score: the city 4/5, but because of my friends Kym and Tam I rate it 5/5. If you knew them, you would also do it.

The first time I went to Melbourne I did not intend to spend so many days, but I was exhausted after a month without rest visiting the east coast, the Northern Territories and the desert, so I decided to take it easy, and discovered a so nice city, that the second time I saved time to spare to enjoy it again properly.
