Social media collaborations

Social media managers have been sharing some photos I took, related to their services. The most recent was the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter page on Facebook, which share some of my pics from the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter (check more on Flickr).

Last year, the Sherborne Wharf page on Facebook shared a post I wrote about the Birmingham canals (one of my favourite attractions in this city), with pictures I took for the Birmingham {Viewpoint} project.

Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

The most beautiful place I have ever been in England: Tintagel Castle, Cornwall.

It is the place where (supposedly) King Arthur was born. According to the legend, the Merlin’s cave is there!

There are only ruins left of the castle. However, the landscape is so beautifully dramatic! I couldn’t stop taking pictures until I realised I already had repetead images. I went up both hills, but was too tired to get down, to the beach, and further – what obviously make me feel like going there again. Do spend a whole day there if you’d like to explore all corners (I went for an afternoon only).

See my photos below (more on Flickr) and… mind the steps!

Troppo caldo

I ran away from the British weather, spending a week in Rome. Troppo caldo: I think the temperature was about (or almost) 40C every day. In my photos, it was impossible to avoid people trying to refresh themselves somehow.

Notice that there’s no pictures of people eating ice cream – that WONDERFUL ice cream -, probably because I was very busy eating ice cream.

Cider mill tour

We joined the cider mill tour at Westons Cider, in Ledbury, Herefordshire, on the 8th June. Good opportunity for photos!

First, we tried to visit a vineyard in Upton on Severn on that morning, but tours must be arranged in advanced. Fortunately, Westons Cider has a Visitor Center, with three tours during the day (at least, during that day). The visit lasts one hour  and costs £7 per person, including tasting (I’ve tried at least five types of ciders and perry!) and a little gift at the end of the tour.

Matéria publicada no Terra no dia 23 de abril de 2012, sobre a introdução do português entre os idiomas disponíveis no audio guide do The Original Tour. Teria sido o primeiro ônibus turístico de Londres (provavelmente do mundo).
