Walk in the Garden of Turia - June, 2014 - Guest post

The Garden of Turia (Jardin del Turia) is unusual park in Valencia, Spain because it is the old riverbed of Turia river. After a The Great Flood of Valencia in 1957 the river was diverted and the dry riverbed is now a green oasis that crosses the city all the way to the port.

This is a place for leisure and culture. You can have picnic with the whole family, or you can jog or play football. There are sport areas for everyone.

There are many bridges overhead.

Las Torres Serrano

The park keeps you away from the city noise thanks to it's low level.

At the end of the garden there's the Biopark, the city's new zoo. The place offers a beautiful view to the city.

First impression of Gothenburg, Sweden - Guest post

Gothenburg, Sweden is one of my favourite places. I've been visiting it since 2008. That year I lived and worked there, and fell in love with the city.

The first thing that I noticed about Gothenburg is that it is so green when viewed from the air. An endless forest.

Despite being the second largest city in Sweden it gave me a feeling of a small town. There was an atmosphere of calmness and relaxation. It looked to me that road traffic almost didn't exist. That created the impression of eternal weekend. It was almost impossible to feel stressed there.

This is how typical housing blocks in the city look like.

Interestingly sometimes there are no streets between the blocks. They are built on a hilly terrain. Like some giant just pined them up in the forest. I tried sometimes to walk to the city centre, but at some places it was very difficult to cross the terrain.

Sometimes I could spot rabbits and deers through the window.
Because of the calmness and tranquillity, one thing that I could always had for sure was a good sleep.
