After almost a week in Orlando, the cotter family started a new adventure, this time a Bahamas cruise leaving behind all the theme parks, attractions and emotions. It was the first time we were going to navigate this area of the planet. The Dolphin cruise would also be in charge of providing us with a bit of tranquility and relaxation these days, a boat that had everything needed to travel with all the comforts of the world: swimming pools, huge lounges, casino and much more.
Turkmenistan may represent one of the most unknown countries in all of Central Asia for its excessive secrecy to tourism. However, when the borders were not such, an important part of the Silk Road ran through here and has incredible treasures declared World Heritage by Unesco as is the case of Merv, the so-called "pearl of the East" where we will arrive today from Bukhara once crossed a tedious border.
May 31, 2011, a new month falls. Month 6. Tic tac. Reflecting on future experiences, leaving behind the ghost town of Rasafa, we consider what kind of getaways we can do in the second part of the semester of the year, once that impressive trip falls (whose contest / club will begin shortly) from July 29 to August 29.
Although the days of the Roman Empire, when Rome was the capital of the largest Empire ever seen, are left behind, Rome has so much history and culture that everything in itself should be considered a heritage city. We are almost ready to leave, almost excited and with the suitcase ready to leave from Valencia, which will be our trip start.
The myth of the Trevi Fountain tells us that those who throw a coin will return to Rome in the future. No more or less than 8 years have passed since the last visit to the Eternal City. They seem too many, right? Keys have changed a lot since then and well deserve a guide adapted to the times that so many ask us in the emails (something like the one in New York).
Ending our adventure around the island on the Trip to Cuba 2008 we ended up in the town of Viñales, before returning to Havana. Viñales is located in the middle of the mountains of the Guaniguanico mountain range and in the Natural Park declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. Here is the famous Cueva del Indio, the Mural of Prehistory and the fabulous Mirador de los Jazmines.
