Hi :)

Today I have wanted to write to you more about Australia but I think it is immpossible for some time :(. There are so many National Parks in Australia that probably any reasonable map of them doesn't exist at all! Who can count them all? I don't know :(.
I wanted to find some more things about eucalyptus forests there but it is so damn hard! Few things about I found.
So I have decided to make a break for a moment. More - soon.

In the meantime listen some info about Paris :) I mean - we are comming back to the REAL civilisation :)


Paris - travel guide

You can practise your English travelling virtually :). Good luck! :)

PS. It wasn't easy to find this video about Paris. When you try to find something in this subject on youtube.com you can see pictures of Paris...Hilton first! :(

See you later :)

Hello :)

Today we are visiting Vienna - a beautiful European capital.

And here is the link I want to post here:

Vienna

The guy who speaks about Vienna is bit crazy and sometimes uses awful vocabulary :(. His Eglish isn't perfect but there are few things about Vienna on youtube.com. And no things in English I could find apart from this piece...

All the best :)

Hello last time today... well, English of the guy on the video above isn't perfect the same way as mine isn't ... thus now something completely different :)

I found some videos on-line about Polish (Silesian) Beskidy mountains. They aren't too high so great for starting skiers.
All in all I think I should mention them here too!
So 21 seconds in Beskidy in winter!!!

See you soon - next post will about Canada... I haven't been there yet...and you? :roll:

Hello :)

I have written that next time I will present some Canadian nature but I am still not ready.

In the meantime I have discovered another terrible video that is about one big orca attacking a woman.
I understand - wild sharks but wild orcas? :(
I have always liked watching trained orcas and you?
But after this video many of my views have been changed :( Probably only dolphins can be trustworthy... :roll:

Orca attacks a woman

Is it often when trained orcas attack?
In wikiepdia I read :Captive Orcas have occasionally acted aggressively towards themselves, other Orcas, or humans, which critics say is a result of stress. Nothing about fatal attacks on human beings but who knows what can happen in future? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Don't stress orcas too much, please (and not only orcas)! :roll:

Hi everyone who cares :)

I really wanted to post here bit more about Canada (first) and Austrialia (next) but I am still not ready. So busy days I have ... :(

So today I am going to Himalaya mountains. There are so many videos on Mount Everest on-line - some of better, others of worse quality and the one beneath isn't the worst at all. The sound is clear enough to be understood thus you can have next nice on-line English lesson :) Next travels soon :)

Climbing Mount Everest

I would like to know all proverbs connected with Himalaya mountains. If you know some - write, please :)

Hello :)

The video today will be rather short. I want to show you some sands of Sahara desert. It must be really great experience to see a desert, to walk a desert - a sand sea. I hope to see Sahara desert one day :)

Well... the video below has got only few words. Few words and lots of sand... :)

Enjoy watching :)

Hi :)

Some hours ago I was travelling across Sahara desert when, suddenly, I noticed something...green. At first I thought it was OASIS. But no!!! There were some aliens!!! Soon after I met a huge flying saucer. Russian businessmen invited me to come inside.
We took off and went... to the moon.

So I am on the moon now! :)

Here is a movie about first travel to the moon:

Landing on the Moon 1969

Our pictures will be ready soon :)
I hope you are as happy as I am :)
See you soon :)

Hello today :)

Well... today I have come to show you something quite different than yesterday. India is a huge country, full of diversities. The video below shows everyone quite different picture than yesterday's movie. Which picture is more true? I don't know. I never was in India... yet :).

Well... I would like only to add here that when you open the video below you will see many other videos about India on the right side of your computer screen. Some are really great! I recommend them all! :)

Next fantastic journeys soon...
Guess now where will I go? :)

Hello today:)

This time I want to show you some Japan. This is such a far, exotic country from my perspective... . First a short promotional video about Japan:
Japan

And here some recollections of Italians who travelled to Japan. Pity whole movie (21 parts I suspect) is in Italian only :(. Besides you have to find on your own the other parts of the movie... :roll: ...here and there ...:roll:

Italians in Japan

Well... I had to take you (and me) to Japan. You could see on the video above that India has become another Japan lately so the more I felt oblidged to show everyone a cradle of this economical change... :roll: :roll: :roll:

I don't know where will I go next. Any suggestions?

Helo dear travellers :)

Today we are going to Russia (again as I remember).
We will pay two visits in two different, important Russian cities - Saint Petersburg and Moscow or Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Two journeys will be kept in careless, western style. The third trip is my favourite one. Specially its musical backgrund is very Russian... :)

So Moscow first:
Travelling to Moscow (cheerful travel)

Travelling to Moscow (serious musical background)

Things to see in Saint Petersburg:

West goes to Saint Petersburg

How do you like the journeys today? :roll: :roll: :roll:

LM

PS. Maybe you have any suggestions where would you like to go in future? :)
I am open for all ideas... :)

Ups.... hello again ... :)

Well...I can see I've made some mess with travel to Moscow in my post above. Namely the first journey should be solemn and the second cheerful. Ups :oops:

I hope you can forgive me. So once again :

Moscow with solemn musical background

Cheerful travel to Moscow

OK. I hope everything is OK now :)

Read me soon :)

You know...Europe - a place nearby North Pole with many historical places... OMG :oops: :oops: :oops: Aren't such ideas educational tragedy of US... I am quite sure about it ... : )

Hello :)

Today I would like to show you some video about National Parks of Croatia. There are two parts of the video - part one and part two. I am putting here part one. You have to find part two on your own :)

Probably pictures aren't of the best quality but you can learn many things from the video below :)

First, however, I would like to present to everyone some general info about National Parks in Croatia :)
So some general info first :
National parks of Croatia

And then a video :

a video about national parks of Croatia

Where Croatia is located you can see on the political map of Europe that I put in this thread bit earlier :)

Nice watching :)

Hello :)
New day new VIRTUAL travel :)
Today I am cycling around Vietnam... It is a first part of my virtual travel across Vietnam. Soon I will travel to Hanoi ( as far as I remember very crazy people live in a capital of Vietnam).
Well... the quality of the video beneath is rather poor but you can make the picture smaller and thus improve its quality (easy and efficient way of improving a quality of most videos).
So lets start :
Visiting Vietnam

Well... I must say Vietnam is very, very similar to Poland as deals many aspects. Polish roads are also very dangerous, narrow, many bikers and many accidents we have (probably the biggest amount of accidents in EU). Many drivers are unsober... :roll:
others drive much too fast while roads are very narrors and many trees grow nearby them ... :(

Well... Vietnam on the video above seems to be more bikers-friendly than most of Poland... see me soon again :)

One day in Prague

Hello again :)

Well... I have come to conclusion that I have put too little sound into my posts here lately. I mean too little English language. So I want to improve it now. London rocks! :)
For the first time in this plot we are visiting wonderful London... :) The sound in the video below isn't the best of course but it can be understood... good luck then :)

Jenna is presenting London

Practise your English and enjoy virtual travelling across the world!

Read me soon here:)

Hello in this nice plot of mine:)

My last trip was... not so far from my place of living.
To one pond that I wanted to see much earlier but I was never able to get there. So at last I reached it... and I liked this place very much.

Of course it was my real journey when I got its banks but each time when I will look at the pictures beneath I will go there virtually... :)

The place is really nice. Almost no mosquitos and many blueberries to pick up when ripe, little hills that surround the pond encourage to walk around it... you should really go there to see it :)))

Piegża Pond

Well... I can notice that most of pictures in my www sides about Alaska National Parks dissapeared (and about NP in Oregon).
Don't be angry at your computers! It is my fault I am afraid :(

I will try to repair all things soon :)))

See me later :)
