Berlin – Hauptbahnhof

The biggest train station in Europe, projected by Meinhard von Gerkan and opened in 2006 with a big ceremony.

It’s an architectural masterpiece and has presented many difficult tasks for engineers and architects, like the curved tracks or the glass roof.

Not to miss during a visit!

Lanzarote, Canary Islands – Spain

Sorry for being absent on my blog but I was living an unforgettable experience in Lanzarote, the northernmost island of the seven Canary Islands (El Hierro, Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura) and surely the most transformed by a series of eruptions whose traces are violently visible on the island’s surface.

Its incredible and unique geological and natural landscapes are a treasure to discover, together with its dramatic cliffs, wonderful beaches, caves and grottos and thousands fat plants that grow in the most unusual places, showing that life is stronger than the most disruptive event.

I advise you to rent a car/motorbike and drive on the island’s roads enjoying its landscape changing in a couple of miles and stopping wherever you feel like.

Apart from the main touristic centers (the capital Arrecife and the main touristic destination Puerto del Carmen) are the little towns and villages whose white, flat buildings with blue or green shutters create a nice and romantic contrast to the black/reddish shade of the volcanoes. In these little fishermen’s towns, one can eat delicious fresh fish in one of the tiny restaurants.

El Golfo and this incredible black beach with the Green Lake.

Edinburgh, Scotland

A friend from Scotland is about to visit me in my hometown, so I thought that it could have been nice to take a virtual tour through this wonderful city and its landmarks! I’ve wonderful memories of this place, of its green meadows, its monuments, its peace, its large streets, the air that one breathes. Welcome to Scotland’s Capital, proud of its roots, of its history, of its own identity.

Brisbane, Australia

Last week, Brisbane has been seat of the G20’s Summit. While I was watching on TV the news about such an important event, I could catch a glimpse of the city, a city that, I confess , has surprised me, for its modern and, at the same time, green look. I’ve seen a lot of parks, a lot of wonderful skyscrapers, a generalized well-being, a neat and quiet environment.

I got curious, and so I looked for some of Brisbane’s main attractions and wonderful spots, hoping to fly there as soon as possible! (YEAH, Dreamflight)

Louis Vuitton Art Centre, Paris

The brand new Louis Vuitton Art Centre ($ 130.000.000), by the superstar architect Frank Gehry, is an incredible, stunning building, whose lines seem to challenge the rules of physics.

Wood, glass and steel are melted together to create a space where (as usually in Gehry’s works) there are no sharp edges, but everything flows in curves, like a cloud.
