Scariest Places in London: Warwick Castle

0

As I plan my trip to Warwick Castle I realize I will never get  British pronunciation correct. I’m quickly told that I’m not going to Warwick, I’m going to “Wor’ick”. With only three days of sightseeing left I want to pick a great spot for my last hurrah. Warwick Castle Dungeons will be opening just before I leave for home and I want to try and squeeze it in if I can get my hands on some Warwick Castle Tickets. My friends and I are all able to agree on this trip because there’s just so much to do there!

Cappadocia, a Natural Gem of Turkey

1

8051_2_cavusin A beautiful region that is defined in both ancient Christianity and modern tourism as a site of natural wonders, the people of Cappadocia have made the most of their surroundings. It is home to the people who Biblically heard the gospel in their own tongue during the Pentecost and later resisted the rule of Alexander the Great. Current draws to the region are “fairy chimneys”, dovecotes, rock carvings and underground cities.

Scariest Places in London: Thorpe Park

0

tpOk, so Thorpe Park isn’t technically in London but it is worth the schlep to Surrey. After all, it’s the proud home of SAW: The Ride. The first ever roller coaster based on a horror movie. The promise of bearing down at a 100 degree angle from 100 ft above got my adrenaline rushing way before stepping into the park. Friends who have been on it already are keeping hush hush about the rumoured genius scares in store as the ride leads up to the drop. Hopefully the ride won’t make me as nauseous as the movies.

Scariest Places in London: Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

0

8106_2_madam20tussaudsOne place I never thought I’d want to go is Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. Giant wax figures of celebrities seemed freaky to me instead of fascinating. The statues are amazingly life-like and I couldn’t believe how real they felt. This only added to my panic as I found that one little old lady sculpture was moving.

Scariest Places in London: London Dungeon

0

ld1In London’s long history there have been many gruesome events. Some are real, some are imagined and some are so well-known the line between fiction and reality has disappeared. As a fan of game-induced panic myself, I set out to find the scariest places in London. With only one week left it will be difficult to finish them all, but the London Dungeons makes such a good playground for a fright I can’t miss it.

Stunning Architecture in Spain

0

   sagrada2

Looming over Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia has been under construction since 1882 and is nowhere near completion. The giant spires and grandeur are the design of Anton Gaudi who began construction of the gothic church. As a privately funded venture tourists can become sponsors of the church by paying for a tour of the finished sections come 2010.
   While much of Barcelona is in the gothic style some parts differ greatly. More of Gaudi’s work, and that of his rivals, can be seen in the Paseo de Gracia. Gaudi’s re-visitation of a 19th century home shows off some of his best work as the Batlo House. Immediatly next door, his rival, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, created the Amatlles House using a cubical design. A stroll further down the lane lands visitors at Lleo Morera House designed by Domenech I Montaner. This art nouveau approach to architecture adds a third perspective to the Spanish style.

Open Road USA

0

A road trip across America always sounds so idyllic; nothing but the open road, endless diners and Jack Kerouac in the back seat. Unfortunately, unless the world’s biggest ball of string is your cup of tea (yes it does exist in Branson Missouri) there isn’t much to do on that eternal roadway. The city stops along the way are the highlights, so plan with care.

Iceland a Journey Through Earth and Time

0

8071_5_winter20caving204The literary classic Journey to the Center of the Earth has inspired many film and novel adaptations since its publication in 1864. Now, the story is inspiring trips to the tale’s terrain. Iceland is where Jules Verne first envisioned Lidenbrock and friends descending into the center of the earth. Since then it has been used as the filming location for the 2008 film and the creative basis for many other adaptations. Iceland’s landscape combines lush green valleys with snow covered mountain tops. Giant glaciers still cover the land and create an icy setting perfect for star gazing.

Relaxing Vacations in Oceania
