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 :)

First a train goes in the open. Then you have to change trains and the train goes inside the mountain. In a tunnel. Maybe someone is interested in this message... :roll:

Hello :)

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,

Hello :)

Today I would like to show you two movies.
About National Park Death Valley in California.
First some reading :

death Valley - wikipedia reading

and here are movies:

A ride through Death Valley National Park

National Park Death Valley - a movie

Hope you have enjoyed the virtual travel of mine.
I would like to be there one day. With much water on me, of course :)

Remember - 3 litres of water per 1 hour for walking there in summer. Otherwise you will be dried to death as a roasted chicken... as many people who had ended their lives like this there ... :(
No shade...no hope for shade there...for a drop of rain... :(

Take care,
LM

Hi :)

Here is a place that I already visited in my vitrual trips. Crater Lake in Oregon. But I would like to present this wonderful site once again.
Why? I would like to have my own little, fine boat and go there one day ... and go there around... look at this blue water... they say the water is as blue as the sky!

I would like to see such water, really... :roll:

Crater Lake Oregon

Very sad... read me soon :)

Today a virtual trip to Niagara Falls... a lot of water there...indeed... :roll:

Niagara Falls and not only movie 1

Niagara Falls with a little French

Niagara Falls in Winter

Niagara Falls movie 4


PS. Movie 2 is the best of these 4 (in my opinion) :)

Movie 4 isn't only about Niagara Falls but also
about other attractions. A room with a view on
Niagara Falls ...interesting how much for it...?
Or maybe... not interesting at all... :roll:

See me soon in my next virtual trips :)

Hello :)

I have just noticed I have above 7000 people in this plot. How wonderful! :) THANKS for reading about my virtual journeys. HOWEVER, I stiil insist on reading here about more travells ...not only mine :).

Today I want to show you a Galapogos turtle that can keep apple on its head. Isn't it fascinating somehow? :roll:

However, I really don't know if the animal is kept somewhere on Galapagos island or elsewehere in a zoo... it is not told in the video... :(

All in all... if any of you visited Galapagos - write me about it here, please :)

Hi again :)

Over 10 000 people in this nice thread of mine ( I hope it is a nice plot of mine about virtual travelling) :) You can add your nice virtual travels around the world too. Why not :)
OK. So today I would like to show you a little piece of Seattle. One day probably I will explain you why. Or maybe at once - because it is such a rainy, rainy city (they say it is the most rainy city in US). And truly speaking I like rain very much. So now some really sunny pictures from very rainy Seattle.

Seattle

Soon more virtual journeys of mine :)
Add your virtual journeys, please :)
