What’s new?

There are so many things to say about my past trips, but I’m not going to talk about this today.

I was spending the last 30 minutes browsing and reading about Elections in EU  and other local news when I discovered some information and thought that some of you may be interested..especially if you’re traveling or planning to travel to one of these destinations.

My first stop is in Amsterdam. If you think that you have seen all there, you may want to know that there’s a brand new attraction – a 3D printed house! It can be visited and the entrance fee is 3 euros. I will go these days to Amsterdam and hopefully to visit this place, but if you’re around there, add it to your must see list.

Another destination to be included in your and my travel plan is Doha, Qatar. They will have the 2022 World Cup, but it seems that the preparations are already on the go. This said, I have to mention some of the very ambitious projects that are meant to be completed before 2022:

  • Santiago Calatrava’s Beautiful Sharq Crossing Bridge is to be watched and actually to be experienced, if they ever complete it. It is said that this bridge, or complex of three bridges will connect Hamad Internatioal Airport with the cultural part of the city. The name if this project is Sharq Crossing. According to its description,  the bridges will interconnected with subsea tunnels that undulate above and below the water. A park will be build just above the car lanes with the aim to bring some more green spots in the city and to create an unique view for pedestrians. If you’re curious, you can read more here.
  • Also in Qatar, it is planned to build the first self sustaining botanical oasis. The project is based upon the concept of the Sidra Tree. This will be a Palace for Nature  with a lush and shady oasis in the middle of the desert. Desalinated and reclaimed water will be used to irrigate the botanical gardens, while integrated photovoltaic will generate electricity for the grand space. You can read more about this new and exciting place in this article: A Palace For Nature: Sanzpont Arquitectura Unveils Plans for a Self-Sustaining Botanical Oasis in Qatar | Inhabitat – Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building

Travel safe and wise!
