But Rome is not only about “old stuff” and ancient history. Rome is also one of the Italian cities where all the most famous artists and architects want to leave a trace of their work.
Auditorium Parco della Musica
One of the most fabulous examples of modern art & architecture in Rome is the Auditorium “Parco della Musica” (Music Park) designed by the most famous Italian modern architect: Renzo Piano. This beautiful structure is composed of 3 concert halls (Sala Petrassi, Sala Sinopoli and Sala Santa Cecilia) and by an open theater that recalls the structure of an ancient roman theater.
Imagine yourself in an office, scrolling through amazing pictures of the most stunning beaches. Your thoughts wander off a little, you picture yourself in, say, Hawaii or the Maldives… Reality check: it’s raining and it feels like 16°C. Desperate for some sunshine? Want to get your mind off of work? Or you simply love beaches? Then this post is exactly what you need. Lean back and enjoy a tour around the world’s most amazing, beautiful, white sanded, blue watered coastlines.

Summer is here! Shake the dust off of your flip flops, slap on some sun cream and dash to the beach as quickly as you can. Enjoying the sun and chilling on the warm sand is just what you need after a long, cold winter. Until you get bored… Time for some sandy action – let’s build castles!
OK, so castles are fun fo sho, but there is more to explore. Check out some of these amazing sand sculptures!

We had so much fun making the roller coasters blogpost that we’ve been itching to revisit the wonderful world of theme parks. You all know the joys of Thorpe Park, the thrills of Port Aventura, and the exhilaration of Six Flags – we want to find out about something different. Something out of the ordinary, perhaps.
There’s nothing that says ‘I love and respect the wonder of all god’s creations’ like raising a stupendous, imposing structure.
Chitchen Itza, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Hagia Sophia and Angkor Wat are all world-famous attractions that were built for spiritual purposes. Their spectacle draws us like pilgrims to the face of the Madonna in a piece of toast.
There’s endless information about these fantastically popular erections, and we’re all familiar with their proportions. However, sometimes religious devotion spawns some rather more intriguing products.
Let’s take a look at some of the world’s more curious religious structures – the weird, the wacky and the wonderful. Have you snapped any of these constructions on your travels?
Remember those fantastic time-lapse vids we posted? Maaan…what an an effective way to capture the ambience of a city.
Last time we had an inspiring look at some major cities including Paris, Rome, Berlin and Tokyo. This time we show you some more great images from the waterways of Venice, Barcelona’s Parc Guell, and stunning sights Down Under.
Grab yourself a Fair Trade coffee, slip your headphones on and slide out of Pomodoro mode for a few minutes to enjoy these impressive creations. We hope you like them as much as we do.
I’m really good at leaving stuff behind – I’ve fished my money out of the bin more than once, I’ve dropped my debit card several times, and I regularly used to lock my keys in the car.

Here are some of the strangest items filling the shelves of the Unclaimed Baggage Section:
April marks the beginning of Disneyland Paris’ 20th anniversary celebrations. The park opened its doors twenty years ago on 12th April, then still called Euro Disneyland.
