Santa Tecla: This Large City Can Be Your Next Home

logo

A few days ago, I took a trip to Santa Tecla with my friends. It is considered one of the largest cities in the country. It still has the architectural styles in its town. The city is well maintained and is patrolled by metropolitan guards. We went in our car as it has well-built roads. One may even take a bus there. The best way to explore the city is to walk through it.

As we reached in the afternoon, first we went to have a quick bite at El Cafecito. We had some paninis and crepes. We then went to Plaza Merliot which is one of the earliest centers in El Salvador. Even this place has a food court where the food ranges from waffles, burgers and homemade type meals. Afterward, we took a private evening tour of El Boqueron. It is the iconic volcano of San Salvador and is considered as the symbol of the city. It is located 25 km from the city. We took the trail to the top. The view was breathtaking and even the fresh air was soothing. It is also known as Big Mouth. We explored the massive crater which was 5 km in diameter. On the way back, we had the traditional food parrillada and barbecue.

The next morning we had our breakfast at a joint called Pupuserias. It is authentic food. We had cheese and bean pupusas. Then we explored the El Rosario Church. We even went to the massive Metropolitan Cathedral. Later we went to Paseo El Carmen. It is a major tourist attraction with restaurants, cafes, and bars. It has been named after El Carmen church. There are various street vendors too.

We left the city during the late evening. But it was a memorable trip.

El Viejo: Touch Hearts With A Vacation Here

I visited El Viejo which is a small city near the Chinandega, the place is known for Its Gastronomic specialties. The specialties are Cajetas (Dulce De Leche), Rosquillas (Doughnut), Bollitos de leche (Scone) and Toncua (a particular type of fruit). Toncua is eaten with honey and it is related to papaya. I went to the Ecodetur Cosiguina Volcano Tour; the tour was breathtaking as peeping into the belly of earth can be very fascinating. The hike up towards the top was intense but was worth the experience. The sunset from there was really mesmerizing and watching the glow was something that would leave you in awe. While hiking, we enjoyed the birds in the forest and the fresh air of nature. Being near nature always bring peace to me, as the air is fresh and the silence of technological world but the noise of nature fills the ears.

Our next stop was Pinolero Tour; the tour at the place was good, got to see the heritage of the city and culture too. The view of the lake from the top of the hill was amazing. It was really deep, like a hole in the earth. It was decorated with the greenery and thus, the lake reflected the green shade. But, from near, the lake looked different with blue shade. I was my friend being from Colorado, Ashley said there are many people who ride horses so this reminded her of being back home.

Next was, Parroquia Santa Ana. It is a beautiful church which I would recommend for everyone to visit while on the tour in the city. The church is as the way it was when it was newly constructed. The main Altar is stunning and the side altars are equally beautiful. There is the Blessed Sacrament Chapel which was brought from Italy. The entry in Chapel is open for 24 hours a day. The music was modern.

When it came traveled to this city, I was not having many expectations from it, but after spending a week here, I changed my outlook for this city. So basically, this city is present in Central Panama. This is located at the crater of an extinct volcano. It is surrounded by cloud forest and mountains. This gives El Valle de Antón so many good things that it attracts travelers from all over the world.

In the northern side city, there is a national park called, Cerro Gaital National Park. This park has lots of wild animals and it is protected by 3 hills name Cerro Gaital, Cerro Caracoral and Cerro Pajita. The national park has beautiful trails that are wonderful to try adventure and get a closer view of nature. The trails give the mesmerizing view of the ocean. Along with that what I found fascinating here is the species of native birds here, there must be hundreds of here. I enjoyed watching red-legged the bay-headed tanager, honeycreeper, and blue-crowned motmot.

El Nispero Zoo is another exciting place to visit in El Valle de Antón. If you are an animal lover just like me, this is a place you are going to love. The zoo is spread in a large area, so come here with ample time.

La India Dormida is the spic mountain sunrise view from the valley is world famous and trust me you should not miss it. It has every worth taking pains to reach the top. I personally liked this place. Other places you should not miss in El Valle de Antón are Cerro Gaital, Chorro Macho, Pozos Termales and lastly the Butterfly Haven.

Chihuahua is situated at the western flank of a dessert with the same name. It is a city rich in history. During my trip, I found a display of many monuments and buildings.  It is home to artwork which varies from the colonial period till the neoclassical period. With fascinating history amalgamated with culture and art, this city has a lot to offer to travelers like me. I walked through the streets, enjoyed the excursion, and took a tour of Chihuahua. Lose yourself in the history of Mexico; take a look as to what it has to offer.

  • Historical Museum of Mexican Revolution

At Calle Decima, you will be able to visit Pancho Villa’s home. He had a major role to play in the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and 1920.  The estate had been taken upon by the government after the death of the widow of Villa, María de la Luz Corral in the year 1981. The building is filled with memorabilia related to the Mexican Revolution. You will find weapons, documents, personal effects; at the main entrance you will find a photograph of twenty-five women who claim to be his wives.

  • Quinta Gameros

Quinta Gameros is luxurious art Nouveau resident that had been ordered by his wife, Manuel Gameros. The work started in the year 1907 and had been done with at the morning of Mexican Revolution. However, the Porfirian couple couldn’t stay in the couple. I was surprised by the lavish and quirky details.

  • Chihuahua Cathedral

Chihuahua Cathedral is considered to be the finest Baroque monument to be found in northern Mexico. This stands out because of the use of Solomonic columns that isn’t that usual in New Spanish Baroque architecture. Some of the fittings I saw had been produced abroad such as the octagonal window had been made in Germany.

The rich and royal history of Sweden can bring any history lovers, travel lovers and bloggers to the Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and has a great and eminent history, which wove beautiful places and palaces. Walking through the streets of Stockholm, I tried to visualize the way it used to be years back, and the experience was overwhelming. There were different buildings right from centuries back till present showing how people, culture and time has changed everything.

Places to visit

The 14 islands in the city where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea give a completely different feel. The soothing breeze, pleasant weather and water around made me so joyous, it helped me revive my inner peace. I thought it was impossible to find such calm and elegant surroundings in present days, where everyone is running to earn money creating chaos in every city, but this place proved me wrong. In a concrete jungle I found stunning sunrise and sunset with water stream running in between. The view was breathtaking.

The Royal family’s Drottningholm Palace and Gardens were open to public, experiencing the lives of the royal people and wonder in the historic palace was outstanding. This baroque style palace has 3 museums and a library.

Vasa Museum is another splendid place I had been to, where all antiques are well preserved, 17th century warship, vasa, that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. Skansen an open air Swedish history museum showcase he lives of people and their history, with old buildings, people in costume and the zoo with Nordic animals. These different museums and palaces are the best places to visit and spend a vacation. This is one of the places I would love to visit again and again. It is like a living paradise.

Stockholm, being the capital city of Sweden is easily accessible from major cities around the world with flights. From Europe, you can access the city through rail.
