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.”)
** Cities in Australasia **
** Cities in the Americas **
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!
