A secret gem, sitting in South West England, nestles in hills between the southern mountains of Wales and the wide River Severn. The Forest of Dean is a location many around the world may recognise, since it’s been a location used in several popular movies, including Star Wars and the Harry Potter franchise.
You’ll find it easily on Google Maps.
My wife and I moved here around 3 years ago, when we fell in love with the place during our search for a new home in which to spend our retirement. The following pictures depict a small portion of the forest through a year. All were taken within a mile radius of our house.
For three years in a row, I could not miss a summer without visiting beautiful Spain <3. Espanya, as called by the Catalan, has a special place in my heart. While I believe that people should not be the same to get along, such differences could be problematic when friends of different tastes travel together. This may not be an issue if Spain was the destination. Spain has a lot to offer to everyone who is interested in history, culture, sports, nature, or nightlife. Oh and I will not forget the great food and the great people.

This is my first guest posting, thank you Mohamad for the invitation.
Looking southwest from the Canyon de Chelly visitor center toward the eastern escarpment of Black Mesa of the Hopis.
The village of Chinle is a “census designate place”, in other words it only exists because people live there, it was not formally recorded in “official” records. On the Navajo reservation, people lived here beyond recorded time. It is called in their language “flowing out”, where live giving water flows out from the canyons.
Hello there, dear blogger world, this is a post from your fellow viking that will try to educate you about the country of Ikea and rotten fish. In the middle of putting together my IKEA furniture and combing my blond hair, I have been asked by Mr Mohamad to tell you a bit about my fantastic home country Sweden. First things first. Location:
What do you think about Potsdam? Is it for you just a city worth a one-day visit during your stay in Berlin? People usually go to Berlin and forget that there is much more beauty just around the corner… Loads of beautiful and old monuments, museum of Potsdam, parks… and great architecture 🙂 Just have a look and try not to fall in love 🙂
It is always an enlightening experience to take a step back and look at your own neighborhood and country as seen from a distance, as a visitor.
Often you look to the world for sightseeing and adventures, but there can be much to see ‘at home’.
Sometimes you don’t have to travel further than your own state to enjoy unique scenery. And Texas’ landscapes are about as diverse as the state is wide. Nope, we’re not all flat, all wet or all dry.
Like the wet and cool?
