Our hotel room at Delta Hotels by Marriot was very good. It was tidy, had enough space, comfy beds and free disposable cups so that you could take a drink to go. This hotel had a cafe, a restaurant, pool with a waterslide, a hot tub and the hotel was also connected to a shopping mall. This way to go shopping you didn’t even need to step outside. While in Regina I made a stop to the Saskatchewan Science Centre which was a lot of fun. I saw mirrors, made bubbles and lifted myself the weight that I would be if I was on Mars. The trip was only one night but was still a lot of fun. A good trip in a short time.

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.

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 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.
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.
Out of Peggy’s Cove and into Lunenburg, a colourful oceanside town from the late 19th century.

and the not so secret passageway…
On my final day in Germany I walked from my last hotel the Holiday Inn Express Munich City West to Nymphenburg. Walking over was much better than taking a taxi because of the fall colours and surprisingly warm weather. Unfortunately after a few hours at Nymphenburg I was so tired that I had to taxi back to the hotel.
The night before touring Neuschwanstein Castle with Viator, a staff member at Hotel an der Oper gave my mom and I some insight about the connection between Neuschwanstein Castle and Walt Disney. Neuschwanstein Castle was an influence for some of Walt Disney’s creations, such as the film Fantasia. Along with the castles connection to Disney, there is the historic yet unresolved tale of King Ludwig II “The Fairytale King.”Stories take place everywhere, but even just walking into the castle feels like walking into a storybook.
Hever Castle was the childhood home of Mary, Anne and George Boleyn. It was an easy and short trip from the Gatwick Airport. The castle holds several paintings, some of the love letters that Henry VIII wrote to Anne Boleyn and a letter that she wrote to him. Hever Castle felt like a grand home, that I wished I grew up in.
Touring Pompeii with Viator
Early morning in Rome, I met with the group and travelled to Pompeii. There was one stop along the way, which I used as time to buy chocolate. The day was guided with amazing storytellers.
After exploring Pompeii, it was time for pizza in Naples; the essential for climbing up Mount Vesuvius. How far you climbed up Mount Vesuvius was your choice, which made the tour suitable for all age groups.
Snow cones and then it was back to my temporary home in Rome.
