Atalis beach, also called Talis, is a pearl of southern Menorca. All Balearic Islands are known for their turquoise bays and picturesque cliffs, but it is Menorca that is Nico’s favorite photography subject.
This picture of the church of Nossa Senhora da Nazaré was taken just after sunset. The church is located on a hill above the town of Nazare. A walk “up the hill” is not the easiest if you carry kilograms of photographic equipment. However, the views from this place are so picturesque that a bit of “sport” pays off for sure.
The season for giant waves falls on the months October – March. The waves can reach up to 30 meters during this time. Although this is not recommended, giant waves can be observed from the beach called Praia do Norte.

Öresund bridge is connecting the capital of Denmark Copenhagen and Malmö – the Swedish city. Øresund is the longest combined rail and road bridge of Europe, but this is only one of the interesting facts about it.
Porto Felgueiras Lighthouse is located on the Douro mouth, just before the river enters the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the closeness of the ocean, it often caused the waves to become enormous.
There are 16 official viewpoints in Lisbon. Whilst we walked through old parts of Portugal’s capital, we noticed particular signs “Miradouro” and the assigned titles or names of these points. Aside from these official viewpoints in Lisbon, there are dozens of cafes, bars, restaurants and even streets from which the view of the city, is simply spectacular.
Bay of Kotor is known by locals as “Boka” – “the Bay”. Now with melancholy peering, I regret that we didn’t have more time to discover other towns located around this “fiord of south” – Risan, Tivat, Perast, Prčanj or Herceg Novi. All of them together with natural surroundings, are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites.
