Moving to a new Place

We finally moved out in our apartment. I am so exhausted and tired all long day to organize and get settled to our new place.So many things to do and buy for our new home. As of now I jotted down all the things we needed and one stuff I needed to buy right away is some cable ties - click here.

So happy hubby is there even in his hectic schedule to help out cleaning and organize all our stuff. Though little Travelentz's room is all set and all the room's are functional we still need to buy some decors and appliances. As of now we kinda take our time and enjoy our new place which was built with love.

4 American Cities That Highlight the History of the Country

The United States is rife with historical points of interest, which is remarkable for such a relatively young country. New England and parts of the northeast are incredibly relevant, but you can find pieces of history all over the place. 

Boston for a Revolutionary Look

Boston's Puritan heritage is still alive and well throughout the city. Truthfully, the entire state of Massachusetts is historically relevant, but Boston's ties to the country's beginnings are exceedingly interesting. Some of the country's oldest cemeteries lie there — old reminders situated next to modern neighborhoods. As such, it's easily one of the best places to live if you love history.

The Freedom Trail is a must for anyone who wants to learn about Boston's earliest years. It tells the story of a young country's birth and the fight for independence. Even if you simply choose to wander the old streets, you'll come upon treasures like the Old State House, which is Boston's oldest building. Take in Bunker Hill, King's Chapel, and even Harvard Square, and see if you don't hear ghostly voices shouting warnings about the British.

Philadelphia for Independence

Philadelphia embodies an early colonial city, even given its modern conveniences and skyscrapers. For many, it's the site that best represents America's independence, and rightfully so — there's a reason Independence Hall is there, after all. William Penn all but designed the city in 1682, and his brilliant grid is still in use.

There are churches that serve as reminders of the city's original Dutch residents, as well as buildings and monuments that pay homage to the country's forefathers and their fight for freedom. Philadelphia is the birthplace of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and -- perhaps -- liberty itself. It's about more than just the Liberty Bell. Visit Manayunk, Germantown, and Chestnut Hill for proof of that.

New Orleans for Wartime History

The United States gained more than the gorgeous, haunted city of New Orleans in the Louisiana Purchase, but it's one of the finest examples of what the country attained. New Orleans is also relevant because of its own special history, which you can see in the French and Spanish influences that mix and meld on every street in every neighborhood. The Chalmette Battlefield saw American soldiers fight the British while Jackson Square is its own haunted treasure.

Savannah for a Civil Take

The Civil War is still known as a bloody battle between brothers. Many people might urge you to visit Atlanta if you want to see Civil-based history, but Savannah is an even better bet. It's the oldest city in Georgia, and like Philadelphia, it's arranged on a grid.

The entire downtown area is a certified National Historic Landmark. In some ways, Savannah is a throwback, with inhabitants who still sing the praises of the ancestors who perished in the War Between the States. Whether you take in Fort Pulaski or the Confederate monument, you can't help but feel moved by the richness of the city's past. Meeting people who can give you a history lesson is easy, since many of the protected homes played their own roles in the war.
From the Alamo to the Trail of Tears, there are hundreds of cities in every state with a story to tell. You can find the history of the nation in large towns and smaller enclaves. Which one draws you the most?

Things to do in Madrid you probably did not know about

Madrid is multifaceted city located in the center of Spain. With ancient churches, medieval streets, Egyptian temples and a variety of shops peppering the city center, this city is an ideal destination for a city break.

Get lost in the city center.

Walk around the many cobblestone streets and squares, where you will find ancient churches. Many of these streets lead towards the Plaza de Oriente, another square known for its views. Here you will find the Royal Palace, one of the most impressive buildings in the city. With more than two thousand rooms and halls, this palace is a must see. Guided tours are offered around forty of the palace's halls, filled with priceless pieces of art by Goya and Velazquez. A less known attraction are the Sabatini Gardens, which are located next to the Royal Palace and where many concerts and other cultural events are organized.

Check out the city's nightlife and have a drink in a cave.

Madrid's city center should be explored on foot. If you plan to hang out in the historical city center, then you should book your accommodation in advance to get the best price. There are many places to stay near the Gran Vía street, one of the city's main streets. This street is filled with bars, restaurants and shops. The historical city center is located on the other side of this street. Walk towards the Puerta de Sol, a centric square near which many of the city's best bars and tapas bars are located. Do not miss the city's nightlife, for the city has a variety of bars, including ice bars near the Prado Museum, several bars located in caves in the very center of the city, and old monasteries that have been transformed into terrace bars in the Lavapies district. Check out La Latina district for authentic tapas from every corner of Spain.

Explore a piece of Egypt in the center of Madrid.

If you take a short walk away from the city center, just off Plaza de España square, you will find a park. This park is one of the most popular meeting spots for the local youth, and pleasant place for a walk. The park's most famous landmark is the Templo de Debod, an Ancient Egyptian temple that was brought from the Nubia region. Inside the temple you will find a museum dedicated to the temples of the Nubia region and several walls decorated with hieroglyphs. Walk towards the edge of the park after exploring the temple, from where you will be able to enjoy views towards the city center.

Take a cable car for a bird's eye view of the city center.

If walking miles and miles around museums and palaces is not an ideal plan for your holiday, Madrid has the solution. Take the cable car from the Parque del Oeste park, located steps away from the city center. This cable car connects the city center to the Casa de Campo, another park located west of the city. This park has many sports facilities, a lake, picnic areas, a theme park with roller coasters and a zoo. During the ride west you will be able to enjoy views towards the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral, the centric streets and the vast parks west of the city.
