Turf House

Want to see something unique? Go to Iceland! You can see homes throughout the City of Reykjavik (if you look for them) and in other parts of the country where the rooftops are covered in turf. I found it pretty unique & interesting. There’s lots of interesting & unique things to eat, drink, and see in Iceland.

Harpa Building In Reykjavik, Iceland.

This building is called the “Harpa Centre” and it’s in Reykjavik, Iceland… It sort of reminded me of the “Rundle Lantern” (another building) in Adelaide, South Australia, because of how they both light up. They’re both amazing in person.

Saint Christophe Cathedral

From my March, 2013 trip to France… a shot of Saint Christophe Cathedral… definitely a must-see, both inside & out. It was built between 1725 & 1750 and has been a national monument of France since 1930.

Belfort, France

From my March, 2013 trip to France… A view of the City of Belfort, from the top of the Fortified Walls of Belfort (also where the Lion of Belfort statue sits), from a different angle… definitely a “must-see” attraction for any visitor.

Fortified Walls of Belfort

During my March, 2013 trip to France to see my relatives… In this picture, I’m on top of the Fortified Walls of Belfort where you can see most of the City of Belfort. You couldn’t see much here, because it was really snowing that day! This is also where the Lion of Belfort statue is located. It was designed by Frederic Bartholdi, the same sculptor that designed the Statue of Liberty in New York City. This is a attraction is a must-see!

Medieval Walls/Fortified Region of Belfort

In March of 2013 when I climbed to the top of the Medieval Walls of Belfort, France (Fortified Region of Belfort), which is also where the Lion of Belfort statue sits. From this angle, you can see more medieval walls. If you go to a different angle, you can see the entire City of Belfort and the Vosges Mountains.
