Archaeologist uncover the ancient Roman City Pompeii’s ceromonial carriage
Archaeologists have unearthed a unique ancient-Roman ceremonial carriage from a villa just outside Pompeii, the city buried in a volcanic eruption in 79 AD.
The almost perfectly preserved four-wheeled carriage made of iron, bronze and tin was found near the stables of an ancient villa at Civita Giuliana, around 700 metres (yards) north of the walls of ancient Pompeii.

Neuschwanstein Castle is built in the 19th Century and was the home of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Being one of the most famous and visited castle in Europe, it’s just like a fairytale castle in real life.
You could just take a carriage (no pumpkin though) up to the hill and visit the Castle.
Walk along the path beside the castle, first passing a point to have the panorama of Schwangau where you could find the Schloss Hohenschwangau and the Alpsee in one view. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bl8O597glWz/?igshid=gijvvr5is9ir
then reaching to the Marienbrücke (Mary’s Bridge) you will see the cover picture of the Neuschwanstein Castle. it is definitely worth it.
the path and the Marienbrücke are closed in winter. since the bridge and path may be slippy or blocked and overweighted with heavy snow while there is no guard or staff on duty to help. When there is a weigh passing through the bridge, you could even feel the wooden floor is bending while it is right above the gorge. 😅
I risked my life for the picture!

When I was first led to the Museum of Andalusian Music, I didn’t even know what kind of museum it was. I actually never agreed to go to the museum but the guy was just walking in front of me and all of a sudden we were right there outside the museum. He said he won’t ask for money since it is owned by his uncle or something. I have heard enough for the “won’t ask for money” bit to know not to take their word for it, but I will see when I get out of the museum. The museum is named for its collection of musical instruments but I think the more interesting stuff they have here are the ones which relate to the Saharan culture.
