• Pena Palace At Sunset

    The Pena Castle stands on the top of a hill in the Sintra Mountains, near Lisbon.

    I took this photo from the Castle of the Moors which is the best place to enjoy the amazing views. Later we decided to visit the Pena Castle and the gardens, of course there is a lots of walking and climbing involved and I was already exhausted to be honest, but this was my second time in Sintra so I wanted to take more pictures.

    Back in the hotel I felt terrible, I caught a cold that kept me in bed for the next two days. I guess I wasn't prepared for the cold weather plus the strenuous climbing.

  • Lady L Luxury Yacht In Nassau

    For only $250,000 per week you can enjoy a luxurious holiday onboard this stunning yacht, which includes two jet skits, two seabobs, one jetsurf and even WiFi connection. You can choose any destination in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean.

    I saw this beautiful yacht near our cruise ship in Nassau and back at home I did a little research and found out how expensive would be to rent it. I guess it's cheaper than buying it.

  • Norwegian Cruise Pool Deck At Sunset

    After the cruise departed Saint Thomas in the U.S Virgin Islands I went to the top deck to capture the sunset, the pool deck was pretty much empty compared to hours before so it was the perfect moment to capture this photo. This was my 12th cruise and the biggest cruise ship I've ever been, to be honest I don't like cruises this big because there are so many people. This ship has a capacity of 4248 passengers and 1731 crew members, way too many people.

    Fortunately we paid extra money to stay in The Haven Suites which are hidden away at the top of the ship in the Deck 17 and 18 with a private pool, bar, restaurant and a sundeck reserved exclusively for guests in these suites. It was worth every penny!

  • Nassau Paradise Island Lighthouse

    This is the oldest and best known lighthouse in the Bahamas and the oldest surviving lighthouse in the West Indies. Sadly, it is endangered. The lighthouse was in deplorable condition by spring 2015, with government agencies blaming each other for its neglect. Located at the western end of Paradise Island (formerly Hog Island) marking the northwest entrance to Nassau Harbor.

    From the stateroom balcony I enjoyed the amazing views of the Paradise Island where the famous Atlantis Paradise Resort is located.

  • Boca do Inferno

    Boca do Inferno (Portuguese for Hell's Mouth) is a chasm located in the seaside cliffs close to the Portuguese city of Cascais, in the District of Lisbon. The seawater has access to the deep bottom of the cliff and vigorously strikes its rocky walls, making it a popular tourist attraction.

    Hopefully the day I went there the weather was overcast and very windy and the waves were breaking on top of the cliffs. Certainly the perfect weather to add drama and depth to my photo.

  • Lisbon Oriente Train Station

    One of the most stunning modern sights in Lisbon is Oriente Station. It was built by master architect Santiago Calatrava with a roof of glass and steel made to look like a row of trees.

    The station was constructed as part of the Expo 98 building program and is styled in an ultra modern reflection of gothic architecture, meaning that most visitors are taken aback when they first view the station. It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police station.

    I've had the opportunity to see Calatrava's architecture work in several parts of the world, the Turning Torso Building in Malmo, Women's Bridge in Buenos Aires, Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin and the Reiman Bridge in Wisconsin. Very impressive indeed!

  • Sintra Town View From Moorish Castle

    When you're visiting the Moorish Castle in the highest hill in Sintra you can enjoy the amazing landscapes surrounding the town. From up there you can see the Sintra National Palace which is located right in the center of the town. The town is small but it is a nice place to have lunch or just walk the narrow streets with the little souvenir stores.

  • Castelo dos Mouros - Moorish Castle

    The Moorish Castle also known as Castelo dos Mouros (portuguese) is medieval castle in the Sintra Mountains near Lisbon. Sintra is a beautiful town with a lot of things to see so we decided to visit it twice during our stay in Lisbon.

    To visit the ruins of the Moorish Castle we had a long and strenous walk from the parking lot to the top of hill, from there you can enjoy the great views over Sintra and the surrounding areas. During the coldest season of the year walking the castle walls was pretty tough, enough to catch a cold that kept me in bed for the next two days. Sintra is definitely a beautful town with so much history and so many places to visit that you will need several days to see them all.

  • Bahia Honda Beach At Sunset

    The old-railroad to Key West turned this remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination where the visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling.

    I've been in this State Park several times chasing the perfect sunset. The last time I was there I found a good spot in the other side of the island and when I was ready to take the photos it had started to rain so I had to pack my equipment and get sheltered under the old bridge.

    Half hour later the rain stopped but the sun had already gone down. On my way to the parking area I noticed the bright light in the horizon so I decided to give a last shot in the beach. It was pretty dark indeed, but this camera does a good job in low light conditions.

    Conrad Hotels is an international brand of luxury hotels owned and operated by Hilton so if you are a Hilton Honors member you will enjoy all the benefits these hotels offer. The Conrad Centennial Singapore is located within business and shopping districts of Marina Bay, minutes from Marina Sands.

    Besides the good location, the service is impressive and the room they gave me in the 27th floor had the best view I've ever seen. Definitely one of the best hotels in Singapore.
