Show Your World – Munich

Munich, Germany – the place I call home for the last 25 years with Him Indoors and HRH the son. Munich – “gemütlich” or cosy, not as big as London, Los Angeles or Manila, and I always feel safe in it. Munich – with the River Isar that we can swim, walk or cycle around, and the Bavarian alps nearby, for walking, climbing and skiing. Munich – Oktoberfest, Toll Wood, Marienplatz, English Pagoda Garden, all the beer gardens in the summer, Deutsche Museum, Alte, Neue and Modern Pinakotek, concerts, opera, ballet, classical music and lots more for cultural events. This is my city and I hope you can visit it one day. Cheers everyone!

Tenerife – Show Your World

We’ve been to Tenerife ten years ago. Tenerife, the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, off West Africa, is dominated by Mt. Teide, which rises 7,500m above the ocean floor and is among the world’s largest volcanoes. We tried to climb up there but it was hard work. Him Indoors and HRH the son kept pushing me to carry on, and in my own time, was able to climb up the mountain. We also went whale watching and with luck, we saw some whales in the open sea. Still, Tenerife may be best known for its huge pre-Lent Carnival, as well as its beaches (with sands from yellow to black) and busy, upscale resorts, including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. We had a great time visiting Tenerife.
