Someone loves Winter, time of happy holidays and winter’s outdoor activities; someone prefers Springtime, it arrives with blossom and fresh wind; someone adores Summer for its sunny warm days making this time of the year very comfortable; someone worships Autumn for its melancholic beauty of falling of colored leaves, low clouds and music of rain. Perhaps autumn makes life and nature more harmonious.

Also autumn is the best time of travel. The time to stop dreaming and to start packing. And indeed that’s what we have to do. Because right now the weather is absolutely wonderful in many places in the world.

Second, Ireland is one of the best idea to change the summer’s heat for more delicate whether. +15 degres (59F) and 23 rainfall days in august in Dublin what might be better to get some cool and pleasure with. For me that’s wonderful! And finally, Dublin is James Joyce’s city! Once the famous writer declared that if Dublin “one day suddenly disappeared from the Earth it could be reconstructed out of my book Ulysses”.

What to do and where to go.

The Museum is located on Kildare Street in Dublin, first opened its doors in 1890 since offered to see prehistoric Ireland and experience life as well as the Vikings in Viking Age Ireland and different medieval Ireland 1150-1550, documents life in Ireland in the age of cathedrals, monasteries and castles.

The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims me brain
‘Cause Dublin keeps on changing & nothing seems the same
The Pillar & the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
As the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town

Peru is one of the most miraculous places in the world which has a deep history and rich cultural traditions. Peru is best known as the heart of the Inca empire, also it was a home to many others indigenous cultures which were long before the Incas arrived. Although there is evidence of human habitation in Peru as long ago as the eighth millennium BC , there is little evidence of organized village life until about 2500 BC. It was at about this time that climatic changes in the coastal regions prompted Peru’s early inhabitants to move toward the more fertile interior river valleys.

For the next 1500 years, Peruvian civilization developed into a number of organized cultures, including the Chavìn and the Sechìn. The Chavìn are best known for their stylized religious iconography, which included striking figurative depictions of various animals (the jaguar in particular) and which exercised considerable influence over the entire coastal region.

Peru’s population is about 30.4 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Europeans, Africans and Asians. The main spoken language is Spanish, although a significant number of Peruvians speak Quechua or other native languages. This mixture of cultural traditions has resulted in a wide diversity of expressions in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music.
