…all sorts of possibilities.
In the middle of Reykjavik there is a pond. On one side is the city hall and on the other is more of the city.
Actually, City Hall sits in the pond. It’s a pretty neat building. The outside has neat architectural design, even with the gray slab look. The inside is pretty cool too.
The bridge is a nice feature. When you are on it, it offers some nice views of the city in all directions.
And some great cityscape too..
When we visited Salzburg, it was just one of those days that made you want to take up this type of pose…
That’s right, you just want to bask in the warmth of the sun.
While we were at it, we hit the other major bridge in the city that provides amazing views – Makartsteg Bridge.
And by amazing I mean this…
And finally this…
I felt like I was living in a postcard for just a few moments.
After leaving Usvaras Park, I headed back towards the River Daugava. I found my way back to the Vansu tilts (bridge, in English). It’s quite the structure – very tall and impressive.
One of the other neat things about this bridge is the tunnel that goes under the road before the actual tunnel. You won’t find anything written about this on any tourist map.
Here you will find some very unique and creative “public” art – or graffiti in plain english. But it’s actually more than just graffiti – there are actually some designs and pictures like the one shown above.
Next up – I journey over to Kipsala, in Riga.
I love coming up to the Erie Canal. Life is different. Things take on a different speed and pace.
It’s kind of snail pace, much like the snail I saw when I went for a bike ride along the canal. In fact I saw a ton of snails along the path. They were all going from the street side of the path over to the canal side. They were making a dangerous journey. They are small and slow, and yet hundreds of them do this journey every day. And some don’t make it.
One of the other neat things about the canal is all the neat little nooks and crannies and cute small places along the canal. You come across small hamlets, places not even big enough to be considered towns or villages. One of my favorites is Adams Basin. It’s a quiet small hamlet along the canal. There’s a post office and a bed and breakfast and a few houses and a lift bridge. That’s about it. But its beautiful.
I want to invite us to pray together this Lent.
