One of the best ways to go from Monterey to Los Angeles is for the coast called Big Sur, this part of 140 kms it is amazing with some cliffs and curvy roads ,wonderful to enjoy stopping in the places to see the landscape and the colour of the sea, actually when I went it was August, there was some fires around, how can be induced for people? I was also surprised when I realised there where some posters encouraging and congratulating the firefighters.
I decided to visit Halong Bay, and spend a night on a boat, the previous night I was sleeping in Hanoi so I had to take the bus, the distance was 183 kms, once in Halong Bay you could see the shape of the mountains, and the sea was completely calm, in fact not much more to say…you just have to see the pictures..to see the incredible landscape and the calm of the sea.
China beach in Vietnam, you can find it from Hue to Hoi An it is worth it to see it, very nice, also round boats, normally you don´t find them in Europe.
Located near Tarragona, this small village has a wonderful landscape, it is a perfect place for climbing.
If you want to travel to Cuba, one of the cheapest way to sleep is renting a room in the cubano´s house. Normally you can find big houses with big rooms and especially very important if they have air conditioning. In this case this house was in Pinar del Rio. They like to paint their houses in different colours, the furniture it is normally old, because of their political conditions they cannot get better facilities.
Famous painting by Pablo Picasso whose motive is the bombing of Guernica. Picasso’s Guernica shows images, animals and buildings destroyed by the violence and chaos generated by the bombs. Chromatic austerity fits the theme of the painting.
In the basque country…. wonderful view..
