My little jubilee, the 50th country visited was Liechtenstein. And boy what a ceremony happened. The Principality of Liechtenstein and the Swiss Confederation were celebrating the 100 years of their common Dounae contract. We were about to cross the bridge that was built over the river Rhine, but we were stopped as the celebration was just…
Krapina is my hometown. Zagorje runs through veins. Kajkavian dialect is spoken out loud by my core. So please, allow me to show you a portion of heaven given to us people from Zagorje to enjoy, nourish, and remain proud. Krapina Krapina was first mentioned in 1193. It has always been a favorite site for…

Avignon is a city on the Rhône river in the south of France. It is surrounded by walls of Avignon (French: Les Remparts d’Avignon) – a series of defensive stone walls that were originally built in the 14th century during the Avignon papacy and have been continually rebuilt and repaired throughout their subsequent history. We entered through Porte Saint-Michel. The…

Michel de Notre-Dame, as we all know as Nostradamus, was an apothecary by profession, and published in the year 1555 a book called Les Prophéties (The Prophecies). In his collection of 942 poetic quatrains, he predicted various future events that experts, and many amateurs, find a way of interpreting into related events occurring in the present day. Some historical evidence suggests…

Vivid green pesto, great wine and fabulous walks … Genoa is a city of indulgence. Driving in the city, noticing it’s fabulous big secession buildings it reminded me of the importance of Italy: banks, trades, imports of goods and businesses… Genoa was a medieval rival to Venice. It’s not been primped for tourists like Venice, though.…
Rapallo was never on my list. I never thought there could actually be something about this city. It lies on the Ligurian Sea coast, just between Cinque Terre and Genoa. As a girl from Croatia, I know it from the history books as the Treaty of Rapallo was signed there, in Villa Pagana, formerly known as Villa Spinola. A treaty…
The five Cinque Terre villages are situated in northern Italy on the Mediterranean Sea, just 3 hours by train from Milan, Pisa and Florence.

Tintine was slowly climbing up the hills of San Marino. Not much pressure should have been put on this car as she had enough of the shocks in the last year or two. The hills around us were rising and soon we found ourselves surrounded by an amazing view. It was San Marino surrounded by…
My Life in Sicily finished after a year spent on this island. It was time to turn on my Tintine (a beautiful red car), hop on a ferry and say goodbye. I was nostalgic as a was driving through Reggio Calabria. But soon I was in Puglia – the region with the best Italian cheeses.…

I arrived early in the morning to Moldova, with no special expectations. I knew it is the poorest country in Europe and that the visit to the capital of Chisinau can be done in one day.
Landing with Air Moldova looked like this:
Btw, apparently in Air Moldova you are not allowed to take more than one glass of wine. How sad, especially as the country is famous for vineyards and it is its biggest export product. Even more, Moldavia used to be the vineyards garden of former USSR.
Chişinău is very wealthy compared to the rest of the country, as Moldova is not a very rich country. Whatever was that suppose to mean as the suburbs of Chisinau looked really poor.
However, the center was nice. People very hospitable and kind so I really can not say anything against this city.
As I started my first walk in the city center, I realized the facades had the ornaments from previous USSR – with both the good and bad qualities associated with it:
Perhaps the best example of the USSR traces on the architecture would be this building on the left.
The Cathedral Park – better known as Central Park, is in the very centre of the city. With a regular guest in it:
The centre is adorned with the Nativity Cathedral, the main church for the city. The cathedral was built in the 1830s to a Neoclassical design and it is clearly an orthodox christian church.
Actually, the cathedral is placed at the Great National Assembly Square where you can find the Triumph arch constructed in 1841 which is the center piece of this square. The Arch is really beautiful holding proudly the national flag.
This square was formerly known as Victory Square since many events used to happen here like the demonstrations and protest during the celebrations of the October Revolution in Chisinau in 1989. Hence the monuments:
Across is the Stefan Cel Mare Monument or Stephen III (The Great) and his monument – witnessing that he achieved European fame by resisting the Turkish advances in the 15th century. The monument is the gateway to the beautiful park of the same name.
Funny thing I noticed – and I do not know the reason why, but seems like in the horticulture of Chisinau is cabbage included. I noticed the cabbage heads in parks:
After 2 hours of site-seeing, I decided to sit in the park at some local restaurant and order the local beer. I know that wine is the main beverage here, but it was such a hot and sunny day so I couldn’t resist. 🙂
With the great view at the fountains in the park:
Later that day I visited the National Archaeology & History Museum. Not sure who what I expected, but I was disappointed there was not a single item described in english. Luckily, I can get some Romanian (official language in Moldova) from my Italian knowledge.
The day finished with the most famous thing for Moldovans: the wine. As mentioned, Moldova has a well-established wine industry. Fossils of Vitis teutonica vine leaves near the Naslavcia village in the north of Moldova indicate that grapes grew here approximately 6 to 25 million years ago. Unfortunately, I had no time to visit this places… next time Moldova 🙂
Great post 😁

In this awesome pattern of things you get a B+ just for effort and hard work. Where you actually lost me personally was first on all the particulars. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more correct in this article. Having said that, permit me tell you just what did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is actually quite powerful and this is probably the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can easily notice a jumps in reasoning you make, I am definitely not convinced of how you appear to unite the ideas that make the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however trust in the foreseeable future you actually link the facts better.

Throughout this grand scheme of things you’ll secure an A+ for effort and hard work. Where exactly you confused me personally was first in all the details. As people say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more correct at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you just what exactly did deliver the results. The text is actually quite engaging and that is most likely why I am taking an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can easily notice a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you appear to connect your details which inturn produce the conclusion. For right now I will yield to your point but hope in the future you connect your facts better.
My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
Un rollo para que no cubra la garantia, ya que nunca un servicio tecnico de Hp, te va a hacer un papel en el cual te diga que es error de ellos, y no no ha sido mal usado el portatil, y mas siendo FNAC uno de sus mayores distribuidores. LLevo 15 días intentado que me recogan un portátil con una avería y he enviado toda la documentación, he hablado con aseguradora Fnac, y me dicen que el aviso de recogida está en NACEX , que me llamarán en 48 horas. En la FNAC de Plaza Norte en Madrid son unos incompetentes y además intentar engañarte.
What i do not understood is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always maintain it up!
