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! :)

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 :)

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!

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 :)

Hi again :)

Now I am travelling virtually to one HISTORICAL place where one German Prince about 100 years ago planted many rhododendrons in the middle of a forest.
Why did he do it? It was a plantation that was going to be put into German local English-style gardens when bit bigger... well IWW , then political changes on this area and at last IIWW ...it all caused that people forgot about plantation of rhododendrons that grew bigger and bigger... as they are today. Now the place is called to be a monument of nature. The bushes are about 5 metres high!!! They form a square 50m x50 metres... you can watch them from a special sight-seeing platform.

How do you like the place? :)

Rhododendrons catawbiensis

The road-sign on first picture says "To the monument of nature". I think it is very nice. And new :)

LM

I am waiting for your virtual trips... :)

My next trips - soon :)

Today I am going to show you some part of Sicilia... unfortunatelly, I haven't been there... yet... :(

Some nice sounds of music and no English in the video today ... bit pity but, on the other hand, Cosa Nostra's head quater doesn't have to be specially advertised in any important language (as far as I remember) ... :roll:

Sicilia

Well that's all for today,
