Bom dia. A Calçada do Gigante, património mundial da UNESCO desde 1986, é uma reserva geológica de cerca de 40 000 pedras basálticas prismáticas cuja formação se iniciou há cerca de 60 milhões de anos quando Pangeia se dividia para formar o Oceano Atlântico. Good morning. Giant´s Causeway, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1986,…
Hello, hello! Northern Ireland, previously unknown to tourists, is now a favourite tourist destination for lovers of the Game of Thrones, but not only for them!!! Yes, I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN the show but I wanted to visit some of its scenery for its natural beauty, and to show you, of course.
Ireland's independence from British rule and the creation of the Republic of Ireland took place in 1921. Still, six of Ireland's counties in the Ulster region decided to remain united with Britain. This was the cause of many conflicts between the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the British army, which caused thousands of deaths on both sides and further segregated (nationalist) Catholics from Protestants.
The present abbey and home of the Benedictine nuns, was initially built as a castle. This was intended to be the "love nest" of Margaret y Mitchell Henry, a leading ophthalmologist at that time. The couple took refuge here from pollution in London during the industrial era. But only for a few years because Margaret died in 1984, a few years after the completion of the work, during a trip to Egypt.

The Titanic departed from Belfast, the site of its construction, to Southampton, near London, where several passengers boarded. The next stop was the port of Cherbourg, where some passengers came and other went. What luck to these last ones, don't you think?
The Titanic was built to be the largest, most luxurious and safest ship in the world, thus competing with the Cunard Line, which was known for creating very large and fast steamers.
All over the city, the colorful houses with a wooden structure in the Colombage style, like a migraine, give life to the scenery, which reminds us of the movie Beauty and the Beast. In fact, it was this city that inspired Disney! Bela lived in a picturesque French village in a little house like this. Who remembers?
It was a very quick and economical visit as I did not spend money on transport or museums. Still, Bern was in my heart and I intend to return there one day!
The bear is the symbol of the city of Bern, appearing on the coat of arms of its flag, because according to legend this was the first animal hunted there by the Duke of Zahringen. Remember the fountain with the bear and its hunter that I showed you in the first article about Bern? Yes, it portrays this same legend!
The shopping streets of downtown Bern have some buildings with arcades, which extend for 6 km, so if it rains, the visitor can still see all the shops, cafes and restaurants without having to open the umbrella.
One of the characteristics of the historic centre, also known as Altsdadt, are the coloured fountains with Renaissance-style statues in the centre of the streets, almost all from the 16th century.
Thun is a very small town in central Switzerland, on the banks of the River Aar and Lake Thun. It is possible to travel by boat from Interlaken, but due to the lack of time to enjoy the route, I chose to go by train, which left me right in the city centre.
