Brazil

The Begining of my dream trip

I've just arrived in Rio,Brazil. I got to say what a site to see. Right away i can tell that culture plays a big role in their society. The streets are fulled with music and dancers all around, there are children playing football on the streets. I'm currently taking the bus to my hotel. I will be staying at JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro. Apparently JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro is one of the premier Copacabana hotels in Brazil.

I just arrived at my hotel, its 9:00pm and I'm exhausted from all the airplane and bus traveling. I think i will just hit he hay and start my adventure tomorrow.

It's 9:00 am and i just woke up, and I'm so hungry. I decided to eat a omelet with green peppers, onions, red peppers, pineapples, and a ton of cheese. I gotta say it is DELICIOUS. I'm also eating pancakes and some amazing orange juice. I decided to take a boat tour for 1 day around the Pantanal. The name "Pantanal" comes from the Portuguese word pântano, meaning wetland, bog, swamp or marsh, its the worlds largest wetland of animals and insects and also its the most ecological place in the world. The instructure said that at night we can take a small boat out to see the night animals around the river sides. There are so many wild animals to spot, from caymans to captivators, king fisher birds or piranhas. This is just a amazing site to see in person. According to the instructor the Pantanal ecosystem is also thought to be home to 1000 bird species, 400 fish species, 300 mammalian species, 480 reptile species and over 9000 different subspecies of invertebrates. i wish i could stay longer but sadly I need to head back to the Hotel to leave tomorrow morning to my next destination, which is GUYANA!!

Guyana

Gerogetown GUYANA!!

After a 1 hour flight I have arrived in the Capital city of Guyana, Georgetown! Even thought I’m very happy to be here finally I’m kinda tired from all the airplane traveling. I checked into my hotel about 1 hour ago. I’m staying at Pegasus Hotel Guyana, which I heard is one of the best hotels in Guyana. It is about 11 in the morning and I feel like having lunch. I heard from the front counter that the lunch meals are amazing here at the hotel.

Just came back from lunch at the restaurant and it was amazing. I had Pear & Walnut Fuseli Pasta Tossed with sautéed onions, dolce latté cheese, double cream & fresh basil, it was a great dish but I was still not full, so I ordered myself some honey dew melon & papaya. I met this couple down at the restaurant, they are traveling as well from Ontario; they actually had family over here in Guyana and were just visiting the Hotel for a bit before they leave to stay with their family. It’s about 3pm and I feel like exploring the actual city. I’m going to head out to visit a nearby Zoo to see some animals that I never seen in my life.

The Zoo was INCREIDABLE! For only 100 Guyana money, which is about 50 cents in Canada I got to see some pretty cool mammals and animals that I have never seen before. I actually got to touch a Golden frog, GOLDEN!!

After I visited the Zoo I wanted to go see Kaiteur falls, since I heard it was amazing site to see when you’re in Guyana. I gotta say it was truly one of the best things I have ever seen in my life. You can hear the loud thundering water of the falls even before you take a glance at the actual falls. While I was there I had some great Caribbean dishes to full my stomach up.

It's now 10 pm and tomorrow morning I leave for Peru, this is me saying goodbye till next time!

Peru

After a 4 hour wait at the Guyana airport because of a delay and a 1 hour flight to Peru I'm finally here at the Capital city of Peru, Lima. After i got off the airplane I took a bus to my hotel, which was 1 hour away from the airport. The hotel that I'm staying at is Hotel Melia Lima , a 5 star Hotel in Lima. I'm going on a city Tour and to see Sacsahuaman Archaeological Park. I will be visiting the magical city, riding through the main streets of their Inca walls. I will discover the Cathedral. Inside, i will be able to find beautiful cedar wood carvings. The tour will be 3 hours long.

I just got back to my hotel after a 3 hour tour of the city of Lima and the Sacahuaman Archaeological Park. I got to see cedar wood carvings of the choir and the Pulpit, as well as the paintings of Cusco School, and some objects made on silver. I also got to see Qorikancha(the Sun Temple). The cool thing about this temple is the walls used to be covered with gold. The tour then took me to Qenqo, a place for worship and ceremonial. We then finally visited archaeological sites that surround Cusco. Overall the tour was amazing and well worth the money i spent for it, i wish i could stay longer to see some more sites in Peru but my trip must go on, my next destination is GERMANY!, in Europe. My flit is at 12 am in the morning so i need to get some rest right now(7pm). Im acually going to eat something then i will head to bed.

Germany

In a whole new world

Just got in to my Hotel, and oh boy Germany is one of those places that you know you will just love to be in. From the time i got off the airplane and step foot onto the grounds of Germany i knew i will have a good time here. The hotel that I'm staying at is Kempinski, what a beautiful luxury hotel is it. It's about 10 am here in Germany and I'm staving .The airplane didn't come with free breakfast, some cheap airline.....I feel like eating home made/old fashion cabbage rolls. I heard that the restaurants at this hotel have some great chiefs. Hopefully i will be able to get myself some delicious rolls.

After a big meal like that i needa rest up a bit before i go sightseeing. It's currently about 12pm. i think i will start to tour around Germany around 1 pm.

Just got back from sightseeing all around Germany i saw some amazing architectures, museums, historic sites and artifacts. Sightseeing in Berlin introduced me to some of the best museums and architectures I had ever viewed . The innumerable sightseeing places and historic monuments puzzled me and it was really difficult for me to decide which place to visit, since I'm staying for such a short time. There are more than 170 museums in Berlin combined together for a rich cultural landscape with exhibits from ancient to contemporary art. Charlottenburg Palace, Jagdschloss Grunewald, the Grunewald Hunting Lodge, Pfaueninsel , the Glienicke Palace, Schloss Köpenick, was some of the most best places i went to. Sightseeing in Munich introduced some of the most fascinating architectures in Germany to me as well. At Nymphenburg Palace, the Marienplatz and the Royal Palace Frankfurt is probably where i saw most tourist. After that long day I'm really beat from all the touring. My next destination is Sweden, my flight is at 8 in the morning, its 8 pm now. I'm going to grab something to eat then I'm off to bed to dream about the amazing day i had today.Later.
