Thousand Islands, Ontario – Canada

Bonjour beautiful people!

The Thousand Islands is an international tourism destination, surrounding communities on both sides of the US and Canada border along the St. Lawrence River and the eastern shores of Lake Ontario. We enjoyed a boat trip there in a fabulous sunny day. The nature is wonderful!

The  islands range in size from over 100 km2 (40 square miles) to smaller islands occupied by a single residence, or uninhabited outcroppings of rocks. To count as one of the Thousand Islands, emergent land within the river channel must have at least one square foot (0.093 m2) of land above water level year-round, and support at least two living trees. Impressive!

I would like to share some pictures of this unforgettable place.  Hope you enjoy the tour!

Love and lights,

Léia

Montreal Underground City, Canada.

Hello guys! Today I would like to share some images and impressions of the Montreal Underground City in Canada.

The Underground City  ( officially RÉSO ) is a series of interconnected office towers, hotels, shopping centres, residential and commercial complexes, restaurants, convention halls, universities and performing arts venues, galleries, rail stations, cinemas, night clubs and so on.

Montreal’s underground city consists of 32 km (20 miles) of tunnels spread over an area of twelve square kilometres of downtown Montreal. Imagine that! I was astonished at this incredible network located underneath the streets of Montreal. The network is particularly useful during Montreal’s long winters. You can access the Underground city from many metro stations. I enjoyed it a lot! My impressions: I found everything clean and I felt secure walking around.

If you want to eat something, you will find many fast food options or restaurants. And do not worry… because you will always find a clean useful restroom!🙂

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Bell Foundry Marinelli – Agnone, Italy

Bonjour beautiful people! Today I would like to present The Bell Foundry Marinelli – La Pontificia fonderia di campane Marinelli –  in Agnone, a city in the Molise region of southern Italy.

The first bell was made about the year 1.000! Campane Marinelli is known as one of the oldest companies in the world and still in business! Their  most loyal customer is the Vatican. They have a museum that is open to the public. We visited there, enjoyed a lot the museum and also had the opportunity to listen the amazing sound of some bells!

Love and lights,

Léia
