Once in, we were greeted with a magnificent lake enclosed by majestic limestone outcrops surmounted by lush greenery. Across the lake lies a landscaped park that is only accessible by boat. Fortunately, a jetty provides ferry services through water taxis for visitors like us to reach the park.

    Sentosa Beach

    Water-Ferries Venezia

    You don't believe it until you see it. Sure, every child knows that Venezia is City of Water. But you have to see, feel, smell and touch it. Otherwise it is incomprehensible. But to do that you will have to take a water-ferry from the outside, like thousands of workers and even more thousand tourists. They all have to leave their motorized vehicles outside and take the water cab.

    Anglet, France

    Just on the edge of France, in the Basque Country you can surf your brains out and sit in the sun in Anglet (not far from the beautiful city of Bayonne). The beach isn't white sanded, nor very fine, but there is surf, unlike the Mediterranean, and perhaps cleaner. To top it off, if you feel like stepping into Spain from here it is just a hop, skip and a jump!

    The Beautiful Sunny Island of Aruba

    Bonbini! Welcome as they say in Aruba. I love this island. It’s a great place for a vacation from the major city life. The beaches are crystal clear and the locals are amazing. We went in December, which is in the off-season, and I would definitely recommend that! The island is not that busy and there aren’t many tourists around so you’ll actually get a feel for how the island really is.
