Carnival of Cities for 23 April 2008

Carnival of Cities blog carnival logoWelcome to this edition of the Carnival of Cities; a trip around the world in one blog post.

Thanks very much to Eyeflare for hosting last week’s Carnival, and I look forward to seeing it hosted next week (30 April) at Roaming Tales and the following week (7 May) with Leslie Carbone.

If you’d like to host on your blog after that, for 14 May, 21 May or 28 May, please email me: sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.

Off we go….

** Cities in Europe **

Valencia, Spain Heather gets a new perspective at a bullfighting museum posted at Heather on her travels, saying, “Heather and her family visited the bullfighting museum, next to the bull-ring in Valencia. They saw the skintight matador costumes known as Traje de Luces or ‘suit of lights,’ and a stuffed bull called Gitano. It gave them all a chance to consider their views on this traditional sport of Southern Spain (and to see things from the bull’s point of view.”)

Suzdal, Russia Antonia Malchik describes the colorful houses and onion domes of Suzdal, which she explored in the dead of a Russian winter. Antonia writes at the Perceptive Travel blog.

Salzburg, Austria Linda has a day of adventure (with photos) in her post Interrail 2005 : Salzburg posted at Mes crazy expériences.

** Cities in Australasia **

Canberra, Australia Steve Madsen finds a museum with exhibits of quintessentially Australian products in Australia’s Capital Treasures at his blog Exit Row Seat. It’s the first of a series.

** Cities in the Americas **

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada paulmct presents Tickets Please – Or Else posted at Bloggin’ Off, saying, “There’s a lot to like about Vancouver, but…” Don’t tase me, bro!

Trinidad, Cuba Matthew Hamilton describes this dilapidated colonial jewel near Cuba’s Caribbean coast, posted at his blog Furgo Y Agua – Travels In Latin America.

Hurley, Wisconsin, USA Rick Sincere gives an interesting peek into Hurley’s history and includes video from his visit to Hurley on his blog Rick Sincere News and Thoughts, saying, “Hurley, Wisconsin, is a small city (population less than 2,000) but it and its “twin city” of Ironwood, Michigan, are nonetheless legally designated as cities.”

St. Louis, Missouri, USA As the host, I thought I’d throw in a Family Travel blog post featuring the storied Gateway Arch, on the Mississippi river in downtown St. Louis.

** Any City **

Any city, anywhere The Innovative Traveler asks why some parents seem to be terrified of traveling with their own children, and she has some helpful answers for the spooked at her blog The Innovative Traveler.

That concludes this edition, and thanks for visiting!
