What to see in Alsace?
Strasbourg and Colmar have their own “fairy tales”:” little France “in one and” little Venice ” in the other. Both cities are considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. Continue reading

New Zealand: whale watching

There is such an expensive entertainment – Whale Watching, whale watching. There are several spots in America, South Africa, and Madagascar where people come from all over the world to see the world’s largest animals. Moreover, the considerable amounts paid for this adventure do not guarantee that you will see, in fact, a whale. A close friend of mine, for example, spent a whole day at sea near Boston, and saw nothing but the tears of disappointed children. Therefore, the offer to wrap in Kaikoura to watch whales I responded with uncharacteristically skepticism. Watch whales in Kaikoura come not just.Near the shore, not far from the town, there is a deep ocean depression Hikurangi, which is simply teeming with plankton, which is carried to the surface by the rising ocean current. Well, where plankton is, there are whales. For a long time, kaikura was a powerful whaling base, which now does not resemble anything, this poor fishing has long been a thing of the past. Now it is one of the centers of ecological tourism, one of the first to receive the “Green globe”, a kind of environmental Oscar in this part of the world. Continue reading
