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,

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

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:

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 :)

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 :)

next virtual journey.

Postby LadyMacbeth » Tue Oct 23, 2007 7:25 pm

Hello :)

This virtual journey of mine is to a little town, in Washigton State, US called Eatonville.
I think it is a wonderful place to spend some days there. It is located 1,5 hour south from Seattle. Nearby Mt. Rainer National Park and St. Helens National Monument. Wonderful nature there, nice people, food and lots of attractions.

Here is a cite from Eatonsville's official webside about what can you do there :)

Eatonville, 1.5 hours south of Seattle, is a friendly community that serves as the gateway to Mount Rainier National Park, 25 miles East. Home town restaurants, bakeries, markets, arts and crafts shops, and galleries line the streets of the town. Chat with the locals, order a homemade burger, espresso, or slice of mountain berry pie, or visit the many arts and craft galleries. Eatonville has a way of luring visitors to stop and stretch their legs, breathe the clean air, take in the magnificent views of Mount Rainier, and enjoy time observing rural America at its best!
Population 1905, and growing, Eatonville enjoys the best of both worlds. Many residents travel the two lane highways to jobs in the city, but the majority work in retail and service businesses catering to the needs of local residents as well as travelers to Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens.
Eatonville is experiencing rapid growth in its residential, commercial and tourist population, while maintaining the look, feel and charm associated with small town rural America.
As you travel to Mount Rainier you'll observe many of the farms in this rich agricultural section of Washington State.
Mount Rainier National Park
An active volcano encased in over 35 square miles of snow and ice is 14,410' at the summit. The park is adorned with beautiful old growth forests and subalpine meadows, hiking trails and visitor centers. Two million people enjoy the grandeur and beauty of Mount Rainier each year.
-Scenic drives through the parks 147 miles of roads.
Most roads are open from late May to early October,
with stunning views and access to a variety of
hiking trails.
-Hike the groomed trails
-Climbing its Mount Rainier's summit
-Snowshoe or cross-country ski
-Camp along glacier-fed rivers
-Photograph wildflowers, wildlife
-Spectacular views everywhere
-Explore the Longmire Historic District in the SW
corner of the park.
-Visit Christine Falls or Narada Falls on the road
from Longmire and Paradise
-Paradise (south side): Visit the Jackson Visitor
Center, the Historic Paradise Inn
-Hike the 240 miles of maintained trails in the park
-Hike through the world-famous subalpine meadows
-Visit Reflection Lakes, Box Canyon, or the Grove of
the Patriarchs on the roads between Paradise and
Ohanapecosh
-Ohanapecosh (southeast corner): Explore the old
growth forest
-Tipsoo Lake is a short side trip off the road
between Ohanapecosh and White River
-Visit Sunrise (east side) from July to October. It
provides outstanding views of Mount Rainier and its
glaciers, and trails through subalpine meadows.
-See Carbon River rainforest in the NE corner of the
park.
-Visit Mowich Lake (the road to Mowich Lake is
unpaved - opens early July).

Parking can be difficult or impossible to find on sunny summer weekends at Paradise,Sunrise, Grove of the Patriarchs, and at trail heads between Longmire and Paradise. Try to visit these areas on weekdays, arrive early in the day, and car pool to the park.


Welcome to Eatonville, Washington!!!

Eatonville holidays

PS. Remember, there are still two other Eatonvilles in North America- one in California and the other in Canada as far as I remember.

Soon more virtual trips of mine :)
You are welcomed :)
