Great architecture in Stockholm

The arrival to enjoy the great architecture Stockholm was quite exciting.

What to do in Berlin

Berlin is probably one of the most interesting cities I have ever been. The city regarding beauty as a whole does not have that much to offer you, except some really nice building.

Berlin has been the main character….

What to do in Medellin, Colombia

Medellín es la ciudad donde nací y esta es una de las razones por las cuales amo esta ciudad. He tenido la oportunidad de visitar alrededor de 40 ciudades y 10 países hasta el momento y no he podido encontrar una ciudad que te pueda ofrecer tanto y de una forma tan especial. La gente juega un papel muy importante cuando al hablar de Medellín se trata. La mayoría son muy amigables y siempre dispuestos a ayudar. Otra de las razones que hace única a Medellín es el estar situado en un valle y elevada a 1.495 m (4.905 pies) sobre el nivel del mar. Esto le da a sus habitantes un clima perfecto.
