Barcelona @ night

5 days in Bacelona we were waking up, going to the beach and then going for a walk, so there are plenty of night photos from there. I didn't use any tripod, occasionally some surfaces, but mostly only my hands and Canon 5D :)
So I can't pretend for brilliant quality, but still hope that you'll like this pics :)

Sagrada Familia lighting show at La Merce holiday.

On the next street to ours there was celebration of public holiday. Three nights there were people drinking, singing, eating and dancing :) That was really loud. :)

Autumn in Riga

Autumn in Latvia is my favourite time. The colours are much more bright than in spring, it's a good time for long and short walks :) Last autumn in Paris we were disappointed with brown maple leaves an almost no color :) 
If you aren't local - you definitely should come to Latvia (and Riga, of course) in from end of September till the end of October. All the parks are beautiful, this is real romantic place for couples and any other romantic persons :)      

Valencia. Surprising Vol.2

This part of the city, called Ciudad de las Artes (Art and science city) was really surprising. Built in 2002 it looks like a part of 2102. Conference halls, exhibitions, oceanaruim... And a lots to look at, walk around, take pics..
Enjoy :)

Valencia. Surprising tourists :)

Before coming to Valencia I had no idea what's there. Never looked in google for some sightseeing or whatever. I just new, my classmate Natasha and her husband Alfredo are waiting for us. Thanx to them for hospitality.
After short walk around city center we realized, that Valencia is a fine place for someone for rather small town. Less then Riga, but more crowded it never looked abandoned, but the same time no rush or big traffic jams in any time.
The city is clean, renovated, architecture is interesting. Metro and other public transport is really convenient.
And one of the best parts - the beach is super-wide and pretty long, the sea is clean... So if you are looking for something less crowded then Barcelona, but with all facilities, shops and entertainment - this is really good place. :)  
But.. Less words, more pics!

Como lake and villas

Here are some more pics from Como lake. Actually, it's enough to buy a ticket for a slow ferry and just enjoy the views from there. Villas vith gardens, pools (even in the lake), hills.. Breathtaking views all the way :)

This one is Villa del Balbianello, it appeared in number of films, including Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, and Casino Royale.
