Fountains of Abbey a largest and preserved Cistercian houses (a monk or nun of an order of the Benedictines) in England.
Fountains Abbey near Ripon in North Yorkshire is me favorite, well second favorite.. no … Well its in my top 10 favorite places to visit. It is a ruin but a well kept one with masses of land so everyone who goes can feel like they have their own space when exploring or just chilling out. It is a great place to take kids as they can climb on walls and look for treasure (there isn’t any treasure but I told Lukas there was and he was busy the whole day)
Ok, now I am going to get controversial, yep possibly more controversial than the time I said I am not a big fan of doubles. (gasp) I want you to forget cameras, (gasp) forget analogue versus digital, (gasps and swoons) and forget lomography (more gasps and some of you seem to need smelling salts) Fountains Abbey (in my opinion, transcends all of that: Its incredible natural beauty, the way as light shifts so does the way you see the ruins, the plant life, the interplay between lines and curves, it speaks with Gothic eloquence in hushed tones. A little something for all the family. Open spaces, closed spaces, football spaces, romantic spaces, picnic spaces and a severe lack of parking spaces. Fountains Abbey can never be fully captured by our cameras but we can have fun trying!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
If you are in search of a lesser known European city full of nice examples of art and architecture, I would recommend that you visit Palermo, the capital of the region of Sicily in the South of Italy. This city is rich with wonderful churches, squares, fountains, and other important monuments and buildings! Take a look after the jump!
