After all, this is one of the oldest cities in Europe with a long history behind. But for me Vienna will always be a beautiful Lady with an eternally young soul.

Daily blog: World Heritage Adventure
World Heritage Adventure was an amazing journey through Scandinavian countries – Norway was the most important destination of my trip.
At the beginning of my project I decided to find out more about European “Eco Examples“. During my “research” I was observing people and their eco–friendly lifestyle.
Recycling is very popular in Norway, wherever you go there are few trasches for different kind of waste. It’s a big faux pas not to segregate your rubish in Norway!
#2 Eco–friendly cars
Electric and hybrid cars are very popular in Norway. There are many facilities for electric/hybrid cars owners – eg. cheaper parkings. As an interesting fact I can tell you that Norway is the biggest European Tesla market (per capita).
In Norwegian electricity sector 98% of power comes from renewable resources (mostly from water)!
Remember that in Scandinavia water is so clean that without any worries you can drink tap water!

The beginning of my trip and the first place that I visited in the framework of the project OWHC YOUNG it was warm and hospitable Lyon. I would say that it is a city with a twist. It wasn’t the love at first sight. But if you try to discover it by yourself, the city will reveal to you its whole deep soul. One of my friends said that you looked at all things in a totally different way when you knew their history. And this statement without a doubt is the truth. And you need to approach Lion in this way. It should be added as a puzzle for details and only after finding all of them, you can see an incredible picture. Lyon is a City of delicious meal in Bouchons, magical and mysterious Traboule, classical music at metro stations, special pastries, sweets and of course fascinating old city with an infinite number of details!
Yes, yes details!
