Our route from Senegal through much of Mali - sometimes on fairly good roads and sometimes on unmarked sand tracks. When our vehicle seemed to be stuck on top of a sand dune at midnight near the Maritanian border in western Mali we kept telling ourselves that it would make a good story if we survived. Often the worst travel experiences are the most fun to talk about in retrospect. less

It serves multiple functions, housing the local administration, and the Mayor of Paris. Notre Dame first built in the 12th Century is often reputed to be one of the most prominent examples of Gothic architecture in both France and in Europe as a whole. The École Militaire ,founded by Louis XV in 1750, is a vast complex of buildings housing various military training facilities located in the 7th arrondissement next to the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the toweras the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011. The Musée du Louvre is one of the world's largest museums, the most visited art museum in the world and a historic monument. Nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 19th century are exhibited over an area of 60,600 square metres (652,300 square feet). The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. less

The sumptuous event, organized in the Serenissima times to celebrate the military victories or to honour the foreign dignitaries, today is made up of two different parts: the historical parade and the rowing boat races. The Historical Regatta starts out with the colourful procession on the Grand Canal, formed by the Bissone, the Bucintoro and the boats of the venetian rowing clubs; the event commemorates the Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro, coming to Venice, which marked the beginning of the Venice rule over the Mediterranean islands. Venice and its lagoons is a Unesco World Heritage site. less
