A mysterious legend, long known to the inhabitants of Barnaul, retold by Altai author Mark Yudalevich.

New York is full of boarding houses and hotels. If you want to be on the safe side when it comes to standard, book into one of the well-known hotel chains – for example, one of the InterContinental hotels. One of them is located directly at perhaps the most vibrant place in Manhattan – the InterContinental New York Times Square. Editor-in-chief Frieda Hintze paid a visit to the hotel …

Passing neon signs and crowds of people, the black Cadillac takes you directly to the large revolving door of the InterContinental in New York's Times Square Although a ride from the airport to the hotel is not included in the room rate, it can be booked without further ado. The hotel's location is unbeatable: Just one block from Times Square and about a three-minute walk from the Port Authority subway station, you reside here in the heart of Manhattan.

Fascinating comes Thailand with the strong contrast between dream beaches in the south and the mountainous north at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. In between lies the home of the Thais in simple mountain villages, small secluded villages between rice paddies and of course the exciting capital Bangkok.

You can't choose the weather, but you can choose your vacation destination. Many cold fugitives, who do not want to take on a strenuous long-distance trip, have chosen the Canary Islands as their winter warmth dorado. On Tenerife the temperatures hardly fall even in the deepest winter under the 22-degree mark.

Vacation Time In Vietnam

Vietnam is a picturesque mountain landscape, rice paddies, jungles, beaches, Buddhist pagodas and cities where traditional socialism and modern capitalist elements peacefully coexist. The capital of the country, Hanoi, cherishes the memory of the communist leader Ho Chi Minh: a marble mausoleum was erected in the city in honor of the politician. In the southern capital of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), you can learn about the history of the Vietnam War: museums invite tourists to immerse themselves in the military past of the country and visit the guerrilla tunnels of Kuchi.

We are in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The world is not as it was 1.5 years ago… and traveling? Not wanted. Understandable, because in the end one tries to master the uncontrolled spread of the virus. Travel is frowned upon. On the other hand, there is the creeping realization that we will probably have to learn to live with this new SARS virus, also to travel, and that there are branches of the economy, such as tourism and gastronomy in particular, which depend on this learning process starting quickly and proceeding successfully in order to survive.

As far as cable cars are concerned, we are usually rather too stingy to use them. In Dalat, however, it is worth the fun, because it is not expensive (70.000 dong per person for the round trip, just under 3 euros), the route is long and you have a wonderful view.

Lately, I've been traveling more and more in my home region, not only to discover it for myself, but at the same time just to introduce it to you a little more closely. By the way, my home region is in northern Germany in the metropolitan region of Hamburg. One of these places, or rather one of these small towns in the region is the small Hanseatic town of Stade..

Relaxing trip to Stade – 1 day in the Hanseatic city

About Stade and the surrounding area (the Alte Land) I've already told you something here… I've taken you on a flower trip to the Alte Land at the Elbstrom or also presented the small Hanseatic towns (Buxtehude, Stade and Luneburg). But I think it's definitely time now to introduce you to the individual cities and also the people in these cities a little more closely. Because they absolutely deserve it… So come along on my little trip "A very special day in Stade".
