Buongiorno from Portofino, Italia! 🇮🇹 It’s a bit overcast but summer is still humming along- right with the orchestra of cicadas! The buzzing noise in this video - is the loudest chorus of cicadas I have ever heard! The colors of Portofino never cease to inspire! Italians know how to do atmosphere. 💕
Ah a nice blue lagoon shot by @wolfiecindy in Iceland 🇮🇸. Dream vacation goals we love this shot. The lagoon is part of a spa located in a lava field near Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, The warm waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulfur and bathing in the Blue Lagoon is reputed to help some people suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis. The water temperature in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon averages 37–39 °C (99–102 °F). The Blue Lagoon also operates a research and development facility to help find cures for other skin ailments using the mineral-rich water.
The lagoon is a man-made lagoon which is fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal power plant Svartsengi and is renewed every two days. It is the largest in the world. Superheated water is vented from the ground near a lava flow and used to run turbines that generate electricity. After going through the turbines, the steam and hot water passes through a heat exchanger to provide heat for a municipal water heating system. Then the water is fed into the lagoon for recreational and medicinal users to bathe in. In 1976, a pool formed at the site from the waste water of the geothermal power plant that had just been built there. In 1981, people started bathing in it after its supposed healing powers were popularized. In 1992, the Blue Lagoon company was established, and the bathing facility was opened for the public.
In recent years, several cosmetics companies have begun marketing skin care products using mud purportedly extracted from the Blue Lagoon, their effectiveness still subject to debate (Wiki)
Saw many cathedrals, monuments, cemeteries and bridges on our tour around Prague. This place was by far the quietest. 😊🗺📌🌍 This was one trip where the Canon camera stayed at the hotel and we just roamed around with iPhone in tow snapping away 👍🏽
La Torre de Televisión de Berlín (Fernsehturm) es el edificio más alto de Alemania con 380 metros de altura. Erigida en 1969 fue construida para mostrar la superioridad socialista, sin embargo, para sorpresa de su ateismo cada vez que el sol se refleja en la cúpula de acero inoxidable se forma una Cruz, los occidentales se burlaron de este fenómeno llamándolo "La Venganza del Papa". Desde su mirador a 204 metros la vista de Berlín es maravillosa, además en la parte superior cuenta con un restaurante giratorio #berlin 🇩🇪 #laranaviajera#justtravel#lovetottavel#neverstootravelling#seetheworld#amoviajar#ichliebeeszureisen
So we’ve gone from patiently waiting in a somewhat comfy seating area to standing at the front of a queue because @amersahota feels we might be stuck in a long queue later 😂 this is despite having priority boarding, the whole point of not having to queue. @amersahota much to learn 👀😉
Almost time to say goodbye to Prague. 👋 Just in time as well because the weather’s starting to take a turn for worse 🌧 Fortunately the weather in London is still decent so shorts on the flight home it is! 🛩😁
Santorini Greece. An enchanted island. After unsuccessfully trying to get on one of these donkeys😂 my sister decided we should walk up the stairs. 🚶🏻♀️She said it can’t be that far. I had just had my second knee replacement 5 months earlier. I was in flip flops and a dress. The steps were full of gifts 😜from the donkeys and very slippery. After 530 steps we decided it was in fact a very long climb. ⛰. Needless to say we took the cable car back down to the ship. What an exciting adventure and I am so glad we were not able to get on the donkeys. They work too hard anyway. #santorini 💙 #santorinistairs#medcruise#cruiselife 🚢 #passportadventures#lovetottavel#travellife ✈️
Finding my shade. I really have no idea how some people spend hours under the sun on the lounger. Drowning in tanning oil.😎Везде ищу себе тенёчек. Не могу и понимаю, как многие часами лежат под открытым солнцем на лежаках. Покрывая себя слоями масла для загара 🥕зачем так себя не любить? Я в это время прячусь под зонтиком, шляпой, крышей и SPF 50 😄 #ksenijastravels
El Ampelmännchen "hombrecillo del semáforo" fue creado en los 60s, en la Alemania Oriental, para que fuera comprendido fácilmente y así evitar accidentes. Tras la reunificación Alemana fue retirado lo que provocó un movimiento para reclamar su retorno. Hoy no sólo se encuentra en los semáforos se convirtió en producto de mercadotecnia e incluso hay tiendas dedicadas a los souvenir del #ampelmann#Berlin#laranaviajera#justtravel#lovetottavel#seetheworld#neverstootravelling#amoviajar
