121 photos from Yantai
(Shandong, China)

2014-01-03 - 2014-01-07

Yantai is a prefecture-level city in northeastern Shandong province, People`s Republic of China. Located on the southern coast of the Bohai Sea and the eastern coast of the Laizhou Bay, Yantai borders the cities of Qingdao and Weihai to the southwest and east respectively. The largest fishing seaport in Shandong and a robust economic center today, Yantai used to be known to the West as Chefoo, a misnomer which refers, in Chinese, solely to Zhifu Island, which is historically governed by Yantai. The contemporary name of Yantai came from the watchtowers constructed on Mount Qi in 1398, during the reign of the Hongwu Emperor, founding emperor of the Ming Dynasty (yan—smoke; tai—tower). The towers served to raise alarms against invasions of Japanese pirates. We visited Miaomiao`s uncle, aunt and grandmother in Yantai, as well as the ChangYu Wine Culture Museum.

Copenhagen is the capital and largest city of Denmark, with an urban population of 1,200,000 and a metropolitan population of 1,900,000. Copenhagen is situated on the islands of Zealand and Amager. First documented in the 11th century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the beginning of the 15th century.

With the completion of the transnational Řresund Bridge in 2000, Copenhagen has become the centre of the increasingly integrating Oresund Region. Within this region, Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö are growing into a combined metropolitan area. Copenhagen has repeatedly been recognized as one of the cities with the best quality of life. It is also considered one of the world`s most environmentally friendly cities. The water in the inner harbour is so clean that one can swim in it, and 36% of all citizens commute to work by bicycle. Every day they cycle a combined 1.2 million km.

Bronkhorst is a village in the municipality of Bronckhorst, Gelderland, the Netherlands. Technically, it is a city and with only 171 inhabitants, it is one of the smallest cities in the Netherlands. Bronkhorst used to be a lordship. The earliest known lord of Bronkhorst was Gijsbert of Bronkhorst, first mentioned in 1140. In the Middle Ages, a castle was erected on the hill nearby the town. It is first mentioned in a 14th-century document. It consisted of a keep and associated buildings and was surrounded by a thick wall and a wide moat. It was sieged several times, most notably in 1582, when after nine months Dutch troops captured the castle, which was occupied by the Spanish. The castle changed hands many times, until its last owner, a merchant, had it demolished in 1828. Bronkhorst is known for its picturesque buildings, and houses a museum dedicated to Charles Dickens which also contains items purchased from the former Dickens museum at Rochester. We visited Bronkhorst in the spring of 2016.

Beraban is a town on the regency Tabanan in the Indonesian province of Bali. The town has 6491 inhabitants (2010). Its main attraction is the Pura Tanah Lot temple.

The main deity of the temple is Dewa Baruna or Bhatara Segara, who is the sea god or sea power and these days, Nirartha is also worshipped here. The Tanah Lot temple was built and has been a part of Balinese mythology for centuries. In addition to Balinese mythology, the temple was significantly influenced by Hinduism.

59 photos from Leerdam
(South-Holland, Netherlands)

2018-10-27

Leerdam is a city and municipality in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. Leerdam is the most eastern town of the province of South Holland and is situated almost exactly in the middle of the three highways A2, A15 and A27. Leerdam received city rights in 1407. The small river Linge, bordered by beautiful water meadows, defines the atmosphere and tone of the landscape. Several centuries ago Leerdam formed a part of the Vijfheerenlanden domain, before it was raised to the level of County in 1498. In 1551, Leerdam, together with Acquoy, became property of the House of Orange and part of the County of Holland. The rich history of Leerdam can be found in well-kept historic buildings such as the Grote Kerk, the Hofje van Mevrouw van Aerden, the remaining and restored city walls on the Zuidwal and the Oude Raadhuis. Since the 18th century, the town`s culture has been strongly influenced by the glass industry and the timber industry. This, with the National Glass Museum, the Glass Centre, and several art galleries, make Leerdam a major tourist attraction in the Netherlands. We visited the AquaZoo Leerdam in the autumn of 2018.
