At the beginning of the 1900s, both adults and children suffered and died of tuberculosis. Medical science showed that fresh air and sunshine were essential for healing and a committee prepared a prestigious building project in Kolding, East Jutland in Denmark. Experts thought that to place children at adult hospitals was unacceptable. The money was collected by people who bought […]
The last day of our trip to some of the Eastern states of the USA in July 2018. With our newly found family in Virginia, we visited the city of Fairfax Historic District. During the Civil War, The County Courthouse changed hands between the Confederates and the Union forces. Memorial plates for those lost in wars from the Civil […]
Not being able to travel now, it's good to have access to photos of places of interest from another year.
If I had a chance to revisit San Francisco, I would walk along the Marina to the Bridge, rent a bicycle and cross the Bridge, go back and further on to the Presidio and the vast Golden Gate Park.

The first time in 1666 during the Great Fire and next during the Blitz in WWII. I believe most tourists go to this area to see St Paul’s Cathedral or The Monument; I recommend to walk around […]
A mixture of old and new architecture As I was travelling to London alone this spring, I enjoyed taking part in guided walks. One was about Christopher Wren’s churches, and the other was about architecture and history of the City of London in the same area around St. Paul’s Cathedral. The way this square mile is governed is far beyond […]
