Bodiam Most Picturesque Castle in East Sussex

Share/Bookmark

Bodiam castle looks exactly like the popular image of a medieval castle. It is quadrangular in shape and has a tower on each end of the wall. Being surrounded by a moat. The moat thus served as an almost impregnable defence, and although the castle was never attacked, the moat would have negated the effectiveness of siege warfare. It was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, a former knight of Edward III, with the permission of Richard II, ostensibly to defend the area against French invasion during the Hundred Years\’ War.

Gullfoss – Most Famous Waterfall in Island

Share/Bookmark

Gullfoss is a massive waterfall on the river Hvita which originates in the glacial lake Langjokull. Gullfoss means ‘golden falls’ because the glacial sediment in the water turns the falls golden in the sunlight. The water falls 105 feet (32 meters) in two steps. The average of water running down this waterfall is by 100 – 180 m3/s in the summertime and 50 – 110 m3/s in the wintertime. The highest flood measured was 2000 m3/s. On a sunlit day, the mist clouds surrounding the hammering falls are filled with dozens of rainbows, providing an unparalleled spectacle of color and motion. The place is together with Þingvellir and the geysirs of Haukadalur part of the most famous sights of Iceland, the Golden Circle.

The Qalawun complex in Cairo, Egypt includes a madrasa, a hospital and a mausoleum. It was built by the Sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad Ibn Qalawun in the 1280s. The complex is the earliest example of a new Syrian style of those times, and displays typical Mameluke architecture. The Mausoleum is one of the most spectacular in Cairo, huge, breathtaking and ornate, notice the 4 massive granite pillars, which were originally part of a pharaonic structure. The mausoleum’s central, domed plan is connected to the madrasa by a long entrance passage, and the plan of both spaces is shifted to accommodate the qibla orientation.

Burano – The Most Colourful City, Italy

Burano – The Most Colourful City, Italy

Share/Bookmark

The Island of Burano, in the Venetian lagoon, is made of picturesque canals lined with brightly colored houses, about an hour away from Venice. It is also famous for its artisan lace makers. Visitors can enjoy lunch or a drink and buy some lace from a local artist. Families used to paint their homes in bright colors to designate where their family’s quarters ended and a neighbor’s began, as well as to make their homes more visible from the sea. The typical Burano’s houses are mainly squared-shaped and are divided into two or three floors. At the low ground there is the kitchen, the breakfast nook and the toilet. At the next floors there are the bedrooms.

Tristan da Cunha – the Worlds Most Remote Inhabited island on the Planet

Tristan da Cunha – the Worlds Most Remote Inhabited island on the Planet

Share/Bookmark

Tristan da Cunha is located 2800 kms from the nearest mainland Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. The 40 kms of coastline is exposed to the storm tossed seas, comprising magnificient basalt cliffs, some is rising steeply to 600 meters. The circular island of Tristan da Cunha is approximately 10 km wide with a total area of 98 km2. Tristan houses a school, hospital, post office, museum, cafe, pub, craft shop, village hall and swimming pool. The island is financially self-supporting, and residents earn most of their income from fishing and, oddly, the sale of postage stamps. Only 300 people live in the settlement known as Edinburgh that lies on the flat plain on the north side of the island.
