Jerash, Jordan

Was part of the Decapolis and it is mentioned in the Blible (New Testament)

It is one of the most well preserved cities of that time and it is worth a full day visit.

See you and Just go!

Sintra, Portugal #Photography

Qta da Regaleira

Quinta da Regaleira is an estate located in World Heritage Site Sintra, only 30 kms from Portugal’s capital Lisbon. Along with other palaces, such as the Pena, Monserrate Seteais or the Royal Palace, it is one of main Sintra’s tourist attractions and you shouldn’t miss it.

The architecture is of romantic style, evoking Roman, Gothic, Renaissance and Manueline architectural styles, all mixed up with numberous symbolic associations with free masons. The luxurious park surrounding it, with its chapel or well, it’s an absolute wonder. 

Construction started in 1904 and most of it was concluded by 1910, the same year which saw Republic being implemented in the country.

We assure you one thing, you’ll never forget Sintra, its balance between nature and arquitecture, its smell of history, its romantic mood.

Enjoy life! And for that you must remember, Just Go!

#Photos Delhi, India

We picked 4 of the most visited places in Delhi but India’s capital as so much to offer.  To experience India you must mingle, feel the cities from the inside, understand their culture and, most of all, you must be free from any pre-concepts. Just follow the flow and it will be a live experience.

#Photos Barumini - Sardinia, Italy

During the late 2nd millennium B.C. in the Bronze Age, a special type of defensive structure known as nuraghi (for which no parallel exists anywhere else in the world) developed on the island of Sardinia.

The complex consists of circular defensive towers in the form of truncated cones built of dressed stone, with corbel-vaulted internal chambers.

At Barumini, which was extended and reinforced in the first half of the 1st millennium under Carthaginian pressure, is the finest and most complete example of this remarkable form of prehistoric architecture.

#Photos Lisbon, Portugal -the art of tiles

I had the opportunity to travel around the world but even today, I find my hometown, Lisbon, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You could say I’m being biased and probably you’re right but let me tell you: Just come and see for yourself. 

Today, one of Lisbon’s particularities: the use of tiles in the exterior. It’s a tradition dating back to late 14th century and that still lives.

#Photos Oviedo, Spain

The former Ovetum has been closely linked to the Asturian monarchy since its foundation (8th century), and even became the capital of the Kingdom. This fact has left an unquestionable medieval flavor in the historic quarter.

So it is an interesting city, particularly the old town, but for me Oviedo is more like an hub, an exceptional starting point to approach beautiful examples of pre-Romanesque art with World Heritage status, the coastline of the Costa Verde, incredible natural landscapes and not forgetting a great cuisine.

#Photography Statue of Liberty, NY

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World), on Liberty Island New York and a Frédéric Bartholdi’s design, was built in 1886.

The statue, a gift to the US from the people of France, is of a female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

Despite loving the statue and having already the possibility of visiting NY a number of times, I must confess I never set foot on Liberty Island. I never saw any advantage on doing it just because you’ll lose a lot of precious time and NY has so much to offer. Even tough, there’s one thing which is a must to me when visiting NY: to take a ferry and just pass by it.

See you and remember, Just Go!
