Where do you want to go?: Notre Dame de Paris

Where do you want to go?: Notre Dame de Paris | Travel, Tourism | Scoop.it
Celtic Tours's insight:

Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is one of the best known Parisian landmarks, besides the Eiffel Tower. It is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, characterized by the adoption of the pointed arch and invention of the flying buttresses to support the flamboyantly higher walls. Notre Dame de Paris was one of the first Gothic cathedrals, and its construction spanned the Gothic period. Its sculptures and stained glass show the heavy influence of naturalism, unlike that of earlier Romanesque architecture.

Things to See and Do in the Lake District, England | Where do you want to go? | Travel, Tourism | Scoop.it
Celtic Tours's insight:

 Arguably one of the most beautiful parts in all of Great Britain, the Lake District offers a retreat from the hustle-bustle of the cities. The Lake District is a scenic five hour drive from London and makes a great stopping point when traveling to Glasgow. Stay here for a night or two to soak in the sheer natural beauty of the region, or stay for a week to relax and enjoy everything that the Lake District has to offer.

With such a wealth of natural riches, it's hardly surprising that the Lake District is one of England's favorite places for enjoying the great outdoors, but there is so much more to this region than fine views. It is also packed with history and culture. Here are just a few of the sites that travelers to England can enjoy when visiting the Lake District:

Eisleben Must Sees | Where do you want to go?

Eisleben Must Sees | Where do you want to go? | Travel, Tourism | Scoop.it
Celtic Tours's insight:

Eisleben is a quaint town in east Germany, about an hour outside Leipzig. The town is most famous as the birthplace and place of death of Martin Luther, making it a perfect stop if you are following the Luther trail. Eisleben also makes a great alternative to staying in the big city of Leipzig, when traveling through the area. For such a small town, there is quite a bit to see. To see everything, we recommend an overnight in the town. The overall appeal of the town is not very touristy so you can get a good vibe from the locals.
