I had a great time visiting Linz especially its Christmas Market. Thanks to this bus company from Regensburg, Germany, who offered a cheap trip to Austria’s third largest city. I did not regret booking that trip. Even though I was alone during that travel, I still made the most and best of it.  It  was so far a wonderful   time  for me visiting  Linz!

Turkey has been one of the countries that is included in my bucketlist. I thought it was just a dream when I visited it but I was truly there! I can’t believed that this country has a lot of interesting sights to see including its history, culture, traditions, its people and all its historic monuments and buildings. There are simply a lot of things to experience in  Turkey!

It is finally September! I heard over the news on televison last week that the first day of September is the beginning of the meteorological autumn in Northern hemisphere. Since I am currently located in this part of planet Earth, I have to accept the fact that autumn is finally here. If you are located in the Southern hemisphere, your meteorological spring also begins last 1st of September.

Back to the main topic.It was a long trip with the bus from Germany to Besancon, a city in Franche-Comté of France. It was actually a short sightseeing in this city before we proceeded to our first overnight in Lyon.

“The Citadel, built by the famous architect Vauban in the 17th century is the major attraction in this town, comprising both a museum and a zoo-where lions, baboons and fish you can touch all provide a fantastic experience for the young and old alike.
