Barcelona is wonderful! I was there for the first time last month and I'll surely go again... Well, I liked the Rambles, Parc Güell, the various buildings designed by Gaudi, the Gothic District... people, the weather (warm and sunny, similar to Italian weather), the atmosphere. I will never forget t...

culture of variety of countries can be influenced little or much , that make features of them lost and turn the world into the boring place with similar cultures. That's the point in my opinion. Globalisation is a good thing if it doesn't make the variety of cultures disappear. Every people has a r...

Dixie, I love London and I think you'll love it. I usually spent my holidays there when I studied at the University and I went back there for a few days last December. What I love most in London is the British Museum, Oxford Street, the Tower Bridge, Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey, the Windsor Cas...
