Strasburg Rail Road| Strasburg, Pennsylvania | c. 1832 • The Strasburg Rail Road is the oldest continuously operating railroad in the Western hemisphere, however, it almost never came to be had it not been for a group of savvy businessmen who were determined to salvage the small town of Strasburg’s economy in the early 1830s • In the early 19th century, canals replaced wagons as the primary method of transporting goods. When the Susquehanna Canal opened, its route bypassed Philadelphia and the majority of goods were directed towards Baltimore, Maryland, with a small amount traveling through Strasburg. To reclaim their place as a port city, Philadelphia constructed the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, bypassing Strasburg • Committed to maintaining the town’s livelihood, a group of businessmen petitioned the Pennsylvania state government for the right to build their own railroad connecting Strasburg to the Philadelphia and Columbia rail line. In 1832, the Governor signed the charter, and within five years, the rail line was fully operational • The Strasburg Railroad thrived and operated for over one hundred years until 1958, when declining freight business and infrequent runs threatened its closure. After its owner passed away and the estate considered abandoning the Rail Road, railway enthusiasts Henry K. Long and Donald. E.L. Hallock organized a non-profit to purchase the railroad. Tourist excursions began running the following year • Hosting 300,000 visitors per year, the Strasburg Rail Road currently offers excursion trains hauled by five steam locomotives along 4.5 miles of track in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It’s has the nation’s largest operating fleet of historic wooden passenger coaches and offers rides in lounge and dining cars where passengers can enjoy the countryside • Know more?

_____________________ Bruce Trail | Ontario, Canada | c. 1967 • As the oldest and longest marked hiking trail in Canada, the Bruce Trail in Ontario is a picturesque portrait of Canada’s natural landscape. Measuring over 550 miles (890 km) in length, the main trail follows the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, which is a long, steep, sloped cliff formation that runs through Ontario • Talks of creating the Trail first came about in 1959 when Ontario naturalists Ray Lowes and Robert Batemen met to discuss creating a hiking trail. Lowes aspired to create a public footpath that spanned the entire Niagara Escarpment. Within a year, the first meeting of the Bruce Trail Committee took place • Trail Director Philip Gosling was tasked with gaining access to the Escarpment. He visited major towns along the proposed route to discuss their vision and gain support from landowners. Within three years, the Committee was successful in establishing regional trail clubs that were responsible for obtaining land approvals, trail construction, and maintenance. By 1967, Canada’s Centennial Year, the Trail was officially opened • Named after Ontario’s Bruce Peninsula, the Trail includes views of a wide range of plants, wildlife, and breathtaking waterfalls, with its most famous being Niagara Falls. Winding through some of the most populated areas of Ontario, the Trail has faced infringement from nearby industry and development • Nevertheless, through its longstanding history with landowners, club volunteers, and the dedication of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, the Trail continues to be maintained. Starting in the Niagara Peninsula in Queenston, it travels due north through both major towns and public land eventually ending in the small town of Tobermoy • Know more?

Hostel Chevalier . Where do you search for inspiration while designing clothes? We quite often find it the cinema. The following photo session was inspired by the unique style of Wes Anderson. He is well known for his distinctive color palette which we used as the main theme of the pictures and the clothes. . Are you familiar with his movies? Which one is your favorite?

_____________________ Corinthia Hotel | Budapest, Hungary | c. 1896 • For over a century, leisure has met luxury at the Corinthia Hotel in Budapest. Originally opened as the Grand Hotel Royal in 1896, the Hotel was a hub for the elite, offering glamorous lodgings and innovative technology for its time. Enduring the ever-changing social fabric of Europe during the 20th century, the Hotel was restored and reopened in 2003 • Near the turn of the 20th century, Budapest was abuzz with activity for the Millenium Exhibition, a series of nationwide festivities in celebration of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin. During this time, the hotel attracted social elite, local writers, and even innovators like the ​Lumiére brothers, history’s first filmmakers and the inventors of the motion-picture camera • The ​Lumiére brothers had selected the Hotel for the first screening of a motion picture in Budapest. After the Exhibition, the cinema became a permanent fixture of the Hotel. Along with the theater, the Hotel, which was designed in the French Renaissance style, had 350 guest rooms and facilities including a post office, bank, hair stylist, restaurants, cafe, and spa • Built by architect Vilmos Freund, the spa contained steam baths, shower baths, and electric baths. Eventually the spa was abandoned after Freund declared bankruptcy, and wasn’t rediscovered until 1983. It was almost turned into parking facilities, but the proposal was turned down and the spa was restored • The Hotel itself would survive both WW2 and eventual structural fires that would strip away most of its original interiors. After a $100 million dollar renovation - the largest in Hungary’s history - today, the Corinthia Hotel is an emblem of modern luxury that still harkens back to its glamorous past • Know more?

🎟The St. George’s Hall was opened as a cinema on 4th November 1912. The building was seriously damaged and closed by a fire on 4th March 1948. The remains of the auditorium was repaired and a shopping arcade known as St. George’s Arcade was built inside it, retaining the original decorative facade of the cinema. The upstairs section is now in use as a nightclub named Club International. . . . 🐉En Silca vivían bajo la opresión de tener que alimentar a un dragón que vivía en un lago cercano. Todos los días echaban un par de ovejas al lago para que no los atacara a ellos. Cuando no quedó ganado, decidieron alimentar a la bestia con jóvenes mujeres elegidas por sorteo. Un día llegó el momento en que fue la hija del rey la seleccionada para ser pasto del dragón. Justo antes del bocado que hubiera matado a la joven, apareció San Jorge montado sobre un caballo y clavó su lanza en el dragón. De la sangre del monstruo abatido brotó una rosa que el héroe regaló a la hija del rey. . . . . #accidentalwesanderson #outofthephone #spanishblogger #picoftheday #fall #autum #otoño #traveler #travelersnotebook #travelblogger #travelgram #wanderlust #reisen #england #cornishstyle #countryside #lovegreatbritain#travel

_____________________ Cologne Cable Car | Cologne, Germany | c. 1957 • For over fifty years, the Cologne Cable Car (Kölner Seilbahn) has transported millions of passengers across the Rhine, one of Europe’s major rivers, providing an alternative, aerial mode of transportation in the city of Cologne. Operating daily from April through October, its 50 cabins can carry up to 2,000 persons per hour across the half-mile journey • Opened in time for the biannual German horticultural show known as ​the ​Bundesgartenschau​, the Cable Car connects exhibition sites at Rheinpark with sites on the other side of the river near the Cologne Zoo and the Flora/Botanical Garden. Upon its opening, its first guests were the President of Germany Theoder Heuss and Federal Chancellor Konrad Adenauer • In 1963, the Cable Car was closed and taken down for a short period of time to account for land needed for a new Zoo Bridge. When it was reopened, its route was changed at the request of drivers who did not want the Cable Car to travel over the bridge. Consequently, the suspension tower was slightly turned and the support was moved to a new location in Rhine Park. Within three years, the new cableway was open • The cableway opened a new station, the Stadtbahn, at the Zoo in the 1970s and added another. Over its half a century of service, the Cable Car has transported 13.7 million people without accident, and is considered the safest means of transportation in Cologne. Starting in 2004, the Cable Car began offering night rides for special occasions • Know more?

Poznawanie i odkrywanie nowego miasta nie zawsze było dla mnie tak proste i przyjemne, jak dziś. Musiałam się tego nauczyć. Kiedy po maturze przeprowadziłam się do Warszawy i mieszkałam tam co prawda rok, ale nie poznałam tego miasta, bo nie wiedziałam jak się za to zabrać. Wystarczyło, że kilka razy nie zdążyłam na spektakl, nie było już biletów na film, pomyliłam sobie godziny jakiegoś wydarzenia, a przejechałam pół miasta żeby się tam dostać. Szybko się zraziłam i zaczęłam chodzić tylko tam, gdzie czułam się pewnie, bezpiecznie i wiedziałam jak się tam dostać. Dzięki temu byłam na wszystkich wystawach w Zachęcie xd. Jednak wiele mnie ominęło, ale nie mam sobie tego za złe, bo wyciągnęłam z tego cenną lekcję, którą wykorzystałam później w kolejnym miejscu, najpierw w Katowicach, a teraz w Gdańsku. Jak poznaję miasto? 〰️ chodzę na nogach 〰️ mam oczy szeroko otwarte - choć czasem jest to trudne, kiedy korzystam z GPS-a, ale mocno się staram 〰️ jeżdżę komunikacją miejską 〰️ czasem błądzę - chodzi mi o takie celowe błądzenie, kiedy wybieram inną przecznicę, bo tamtędy jeszcze nie szkłam 〰️ szukam wydarzeń w okolicy i biorę w nich udział 〰️ wymyślam powód, żeby pojechać gdzieś, gdzieś gdzie jeszcze nie byłam - chodzi mi o to, że szczególnie na początku nie musimy sobie aż tak bardzo ułatwiać i chodzić tylko do najbliższego sklepu, jeździć do najbliższego kina itd 〰️ korzystam z Instagrama do wyszukiwania fajnych miejsc, bo to jest skarbnica inspiracji 〰️ studiuję historię sztuki, więc siłą rzeczy często słyszę o różnych miejscach, czy wydarzeniach które warto zobaczyć A może Wy macie jeszcze jakieś wskazówki dla mnie?

I have booked an epic holiday for our first no fly trip of 2020. . In March we’ll be travelling by train to Bordeaux, then Madrid ending up in Seville and Andalucia for a week. We will return with a stop off in Barcelona and Paris. . I’m not going to lie, it was logistically a little stressful to organise and it wasn’t cheap. However I’m proud of our attempt to fly less. And I’m ridiculously excited about the adventure we’ll be embarking on. . Ps this is Switzerland 🇨🇭 where admittedly we’re not travelling to, but I couldn’t resist the awesome pic! .

RENNES. Bretagne. Francia. Diciembre 2019. “Maison a Pans de bois”: Casas de entramado de madera. .. Desde el siglo XIV se construyó con los materiales de la zona: la dura, seca y duradera madera del roble, (proveniente de los bosques bretones), y el adobe, que es mezcla de arcilla y paja. Pueden llegar hasta los 4 pisos (parece que se te están por caer encima!!!!)Las ventanas de vitraux y los pigmentos naturales que utilizaban para pintarlas mostraba la posición social de su propietario. En general eran rojas o amarillas. Y utilizaban el azul, del lapislázuli, sólo para detalles de decoración. A partir del siglo XVI, se las ornamentaba con esculturas de animales o vegetales. El gobierno tiene un Plan para reformarlas, pues integran el patrimonio bretón. Y muchas de las que fueron recuperadas, funcionan como creperies, brasseries o pubs. Pudimos visitar el Parque Thabor, y la piscina y baños públicos. Esta piscina se metamorfosea durante los Bars en trans (festival musical), y se convierte en pista de baile. !! Se convierte en una discoteca de agua! !!! #France #frenchculture #visitfrance #disfrutarlovivido #tantosmotivosparaestaragradecida #valelapenair #hacerhoylodehoy #disfrutarlovivido #viajarmetransforma #trip #traveltheworld #otrosueñocumplido #viajaresunplacer #travelholic #viajeros #tourist #turismo #beautifuldestinations #dondeestuve @revistalugares #accidentalywesanderson #accidentalwesanderson

_____________________ Rīgas Sporta Manēža | Riga, Latvia | c. 1965 • Since 1965, the Rīgas Sporta Manēža, or Riga Municipal Sports Institution, has provided a space for sports and cultural events to take place in the Latvian capital of Riga. Although constructed over a half a century ago, the sports arena continues to offer space for athletics, exercise, and sports rehabilitation • Designed by architects Viktor Mellenberg and Edwin Abul, the structure then known as the Riga National Sports Hall contained a large arena with a capacity for 2,400 spectator seats. At the time of its construction, it was the most modern sports facility of its time in Latvia • Depending on the type of racing sport being hosted, the large arena could hold up to 3,700 spectators. With three athletic runways, exercise rooms, various gyms, and a rehabilitation center, the Sports Hall regularly hosted different levels of sports competitions. Frisbee, pentathlon, boxing, martial arts, novus, table tennis, handball, and volleyball are just some of the many sports that have been enjoyed. Rooms were also sometimes used for exhibitions and concerts • Today, the Sports Institution still maintains its mid-century charm, but has evolved to cater to its modern clientele. The building’s arena has expanded considerably, and improvements have made it easier to train and compete. Notable hosted competitions include the World Championship in Greco Roman wrestling and the European Championship in Novus, which is similar to pocket billiards • Managed by the Riga City Council Education, Culture, and Sports Department, the Riga Municipal Sports Institution continues to encourage self and physical improvement of its members of all ages • Know more?

_____________________ House of Falconer | Ontario, Canada | c. 1858 • From artists to antique dealers, the House of Falconer in Ontario, Canada has housed a number of eclectic homeowners since it was built in the mid-19th century. Formerly owned by Thera Falconer who ran an antique shop on nearby Main Street, the House of Falconer is now home to artist studios • After Thera passed away in 2008, the House fell into neglect for many years. When designer and innkeeper Alexandre Fida discovered the property, he decided to restore it. Working with a team of restoration and landscape architects, Fida has been diligently documenting the restoration process • Originally built in 1858 by Captain Downes, an accomplished artist, the House of Falconer is a quaint Victorian-style cottage with a towering gable peak at its front. Inside, 12-foot ceiling and large, bright windows illuminate the front parlor and quirky discoveries ranging from chandeliers, to vintage film projectors, to retro mermaid wallpaper have been found inside • Over the years, surrounding buildings in Prince Edward County have been removed and replaced with strip malls and parking lots, yet the House remained and has become a highly cherished heritage site with Fida and his team diligently restoring the original fabric of the building • Since the start of its restoration, the House has hosted open artist studios and pop up shows to invite visitors to view the progress as it unfolds. Fida continues to focus his preservation and restoration efforts on buildings in Ontario • Know more?
