a much overdue session with the UO course guide was hashed out tonight. and, actually, i loved it. as a result, i feel less weighted down. exhalation at its finest. i’m even a bit excited to start school and begin the track to the awesome career i’ll list soon. one thing i am most grateful for is just how many options i have there. sure, it’ll be rainy, crowded, familiar, and too close to home…but if i start with journalism, it’s no problem to switch to communications or English or Theater or Cultural Anthropology or whatever it is i decide i want to delve into. and for that, UO finally gets a plus in my book.

my ultimate job as of now: International Journalist in Cross-Cultural Communication and Cultural Studies.

sounds silly, but wait until you hear what i get to do in preparation for that: I take The College of Romance Language by the horns and in return will learn more Spanish, Portugese, French, and Italian than i could ever even hope for. the study abroad programs sound terrific and it also sounds as if scholarship funding for them isn’t too shabby either. case and point: i study two terms in Sevilla, Spain via the Spanish program. Or, if i don’t want to visit a place i’ve already been…put my Portugese to the test and go to Brazil. hell. fucking. yes.

THE BEST KNOWN CITIES OF FRANCE

There is much to see and do in France, but a traveler pressed for time and with limited purses will often have to make the difficult choice of narrowing down an itinerary. Here are some of the most interesting cities of France that are frequently visited because of the wide number of tourist attractions:

Paris. This is one of the most romantic cities in the world, and (as the capital of the country) is home to its biggest museums and historical monuments. The restaurants and hotels here are world-class, and the galleries display the latest work of up and coming artists.
Bordeaux. It is the capital of the South west region and is famous for its wines.
Cannes. Home to the famous film festival.
Lyon. It has one of the richest histories, having played a large role during the Roman occupation and the Resistance.
Marseille. This is the heart of the famous Provence region, one of the most picturesque (and oft painted) regions in the country.
Nice. This is found on the French Riviera and is famous for its resorts.

Train travel July 6, 2007

If you are not in a rush to get to your destination, and would like to see some countryside, then why not take a train?


Train travel is a great alternative to flying or driving. Trains can be fun, romantic, reasonably priced  and even fast. Many European travellers wouldn’t see the continent any other way. Train travel is the best way to see all landmarks. It isn’t so fast as air travelling, but is much more interesting, exiting and in addition is cheaper, you spend money and have one unforgettable experience. What better than this?

 

Train travel is intended for holiday travels, when You need of relax and take pleasure to a nature. But if travel on business  train isn’t good choice, because take time.

Now is time to share with You my personal opinion of train travel. When I was a student, our classmate very often took out us of an excursion and one of the most pleasures part of the excursion was the train travel. Inside everybody had fun, listened music and played games (mainly cards). I remember that looked through the window, watched all beautiful nature, sightseeing, every bird and cloud in the sky. Every nook and corner pleased the eye. I drew imaginary pictures and felt as free as a bird. The feeling was indescribable… Can go with train almost where you want and I recommend you if still aren’t travel with train to try immediately.

Savoring the San Sebastian Flavor July 6, 2007

LOCATED in the Basque region, San Sebastian is the summer capital of Spain. It is not only known with that title but San Sebastian, Spain also offers the best winery in all of Europe. A winery and culinary tour to that city and Bilbao is one of the fantasy adventures any tourist can have.
San Sebastian is located about 21 kilometers west of the French border. It is aptly called as a tasteful resort due to its reputable cuisine. There are lots of local travel agencies here which offer winery and culinary tours around the city on a daily basis. Don’t ever let your guard down since if you don’t have any reservation for any of these tours, you will be left behind. So be sure that when you are still in your home country, you have called Expedia or Travelocity ahead and book for the winery and culinary tours as far as two months early.
A typical winery and culinary tour starts when you are personally picked up at your hotel lobby in San Sebastian, Spain in no less than Mercedes. Of course, don’t be too pampered and let the chauffeur knock you in your hotel room. Wait at the hotel lobby as I’ve said.

THE beaches in Menorca, Spain are undoubtedly one of the best the country has to offer. It is impressive so much even to the international community that the UNESCO has designated the whole island off the coast of the Spanish mainland as a biosphere reserve. With that designation, you can be sure that you will only frolic at some of the cleanest beaches in the world in Menorca. If you’ve just heard of this place, think Ibiza. Ibiza is one of the Balearic islands and Menorca is the biggest of these islands. If Ibiza is a place of nonstop partying, then Menorca is the place of nonstop nature appreciation.

Romantic travel destinations are located around the world but be sure you make the correct choice and research your romantic travel destination. It is not only young couples in love or who are about to get married and going off on their honeymoon who are looking for romantic travel destinations. But there are also couples who have been together for a number of years and want to celebrate the time they have been together.

Paris
Of course as soon as people think of a romantic destination they automatically think of Paris. Often referred to the city of romance because of its beautiful architecture and food however there are other locations within France which are just as beautiful and just as romantic and this includes Provence.

Venice
This is a city where it seems to float above the water and has old cobbled streets where couples can walk hand in hand whilst enjoying the architecture around them. Plus for those who really want to add a little more romance in to their time in the city they should ensure that they take a trip on one of the gondolas.

Jedes Jahr zieht es Millionen von Touristen an die Küsten Spaniens: Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa del Sol, Costa Calida, Costa Verde und an die Küsten der Balearen und der Kanaren. Alicante ist die Hauptstadt der Costa Blanca, aber weit mehr Touristen findet man in Benidorm, einem lebhaften Ferienort mit vielen Bars und Diskotheken. Die bekannteste Stadt der Costa Brava ist Barcelona. Dort findet man nicht nur Strand, sondern auch viele Restaurants, Clubs und Bars, gute Shoppingmöglichkeiten und auch ein reiches kulturelles Angebot. Gaudi hinterliess viele Spuren im Stadtbild. Werke von ihm sind unter anderem die Sagrada Familia, der Parc Güell und Casa Mila. Die Costa del Sol erstreckt sich von Almeria nach Tarifa. Sie zeichnet sich durch mildes Klima und ihre schönen Sandstrände aus. Murcia ist eine der bekanntesten Städte der Costa Calida “warme Küste”. Mit Sonnenschein das ganze Jahr über ist sie ideal für Wassersportarten und Badenixen. Die Costa Verde liegt in der Provinz Asturias mit der Hauptstadt Oviedo. Das Gebiet zeichnet sich durch Berge, Seen, malerische Fischerdörfer und extensive grüne Wälder aus. Die Costa de la Luz erstreckt sich von Ayamonte bis nach Tarifa mit über 200 km Küste. Cádiz, Tarifa sowie die bekannten “pueblos blancos” (weisse dörfer) sind bezaubernd und verfügen über goldene Sandstrände, die sich sowohl für Wassersport eignen als auch zum Entspannen. Wenn Sie also nach Spanien reisen, haben Sie die Qual der Wahl.
