Summer 0f 2014

During my summer in 2014 I went to Nova Scotia as I do every summer. Although this year I went to Prince Edward Island as well. Some photos and more explanations are just below.

Lunenburg

Dalvay By the Sea

Kate Middleton and Prince William had been at this resort before I had. There was a cardboard Kate Middleton and Prince William by the entrance. It was fascinating to know that Royals from England had previously stayed were me and part of my family were. I really enjoyed being so close to the ocean as well. Here are some photos from my stay!

Our other adventures in Prince Edward Island included Anne of Green Gables close to Charlottetown and in Charlottetown. Some photos are here!

Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Victoria

I visited Victoria, British Columbia in April. The reason I went to Victoria this year was my Grandma and Grandpas art show. A fun coincidence is that in 2014 I was in Victoria just a month earlier from when I went this year. Down below is a collection of pictures of my holiday in Victoria besides the art show.

Art Vallarta

My mom saw the classes online and signed me up for it before we arrived in Puerto Vallarta. It was nice getting to make pieces that I could take home and use. The classes were also a lot easier than I expected, probably because of the teachers.

A Viator Vatican Tour

Vatican city is the smallest country in the world, it is also located in Rome. The outside of the Vatican doesn’t really seem real to me and my pictures don’t do it justice at all. If you plan on looking inside, taking a tour will fast forward you into the Vatican. You’ll be saving yourself from lost time and fainting from the heat, which I almost did a couple of times.

The area shown below is off limits to public, however it is allowed with the tour.

Day Out Of Halifax

Day trips to different parts of Nova Scotia can easily be taken from Halifax. Two favourites of mine are Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg. Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg are just half an hour apart from each other and only about an hour away from Halifax.

Peggy’s Cove

If you go to Peggy’s Cove please do not go too close to the ocean or on the wet rocks, for you do not want to be swept away. The areas in the pictures down below are safe to go to, just watch your step.

Altes Brauhaus

Located in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

I like to collect miniature buildings when I go places and surprisingly found one of the building that I liked to stare at outside my hotel room window.

and another hotel room view

There’s my favourite flower

and out of the room

A journey downstairs…

Hotel restaurant

The breakfast at the hotel was a lot of fun, since donuts were included. There was a lot of other food to choose from and a variety of teas.
