Photo of the Day #2

???????????????????????????????One day I woke up in Birmingham and saw one of the most beautiful sunrises of my life! I was visiting Patrícia, one friend of mine, and we were on our way to Coventry. Before we got to the bus station, we had to stop and appreciate the beauty of this moment.

What I love the most about this picture of Birmingham is this constrast between the modern mall Bull Ring and the old St Martin’s church. I think it sums up the essence of this city!

And you? Where was the most beautiful sunrise of your life?

Fira, Santorini, September 2013
Better than to see the sunset playing with the colors of the sky and almost kissing the quiet, but powerful, caldera is to see its reflections on the white-washed walls of the houses and caves of Santorini. Fira is the capital of Santorini and one of the most crowded places of this beautiful island. It was the first city we visited in our ten days greek vacations.
Breathtaking.

Cascais Lumina 2013

When I came back from Greece, this last summer, Cascais was full of light and colour! And full of life, as well! Lumina made its second edition in the famous Cascais Bay (or as we call it “Baía de Cascais”) and in the historical center of the town, attracting hundreds of people who walked around to see cars full with flowers, several luminous sculptures, great multimedia projections, some shows of music and light, video mapping and 3D effects. 

The best part was that this big show was entirely for free and we even had discount for the train to get there (you can’t actually park near the event because some roads were closed and the others were full of traffic). For the roundtrip ticket in Cascais train line we only paid 1€! Great, isn’t it? Specially when we are use to pay 1,25€ one way (the lowest price you can find in Cascais Train Line).
