When I went there I really didn’t know what I will see but this fortress took me of the hook. It is amazing. All territory is paled and you have to pay for entrance. Hm, funny, it costs about 0,30 Euros.

Those who are looking for amazing bling bling buildings without any dust on it, please DON’T GO HERE! All you will see here it is amazing and massive old military buildings. They all are derelict. You can enter some of these buildings and nobody will tell you “don’t go here, you are not allowed” :)

There are so many buildings that it is impossible to review each of them. Here some pics of it. If you decide to go there to see what I am talking about, please contact me, because I want to go there one more time :)

You can read the history of this fortress in the UNESCO website: http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/393/

    Photo Stories: Children of the Desert by eleonorepairet

    My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Mediterranean Sea (A Tribute to Édouard Boubat)

    This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.

    The World according to Herr Willie: Brasília

    It's a modern utopia, a one-of-a-kind in the world: Brasília. The capital of marvelous Brazil is the wet dream of every architecture aficionado, the masterpiece of Oscar Niemeyer. This architect created an illusion of better living; thus, Brasília was declared an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. This is a homage to lines, curves, and boldness.

    When in London

    What makes travel a great experience is the newness of things. The environment, people and culture tend to be different from customs back home. Coming from the Philippines, I found a lot of novel things in the United Kingdom, especially in the city of London.
