Where the Hell am I?

I'm in an island located in the Pacific Ocean. This is near Australia, but the culture is very, very different.

I've been there only once, but I really think that it's one of the most impressive places in the world.

When I'm there I can visit many extraordinary and exotic places such as local markets, hinduist and budist temples, white sandy beaches, or the famous Monkey Forest!

I must recommend you to ask a BamiGoreng in any restaurant or foodplace, apart of being cheap, it's very tasty!

Of course you mustn't forget to go to any of their religious dances. They are spectacular!!!


Are you going to guess where the Hell am I? Can you know what's the name of the picture's place? Good luck!

Where the Hell am I?


This city is lockated in the south-west of netherland. And is the bigest center of goods interchance of europe and the second of the world.


This city is the second bigest of the country, and the place is fantastic, the activity at night It's incredibe and the things that you can do are very large. If you would like  explore the city you can shopping and visit all of the monuments, and of course if you want, the place where were bombarding in the second wold at war. In the restaurants, the food is deliciouusss!!! And I love specialy the honey biscuits. But If you prefer go out  to be with the nature you can sail around all of canals that there are and visit the mills which for my are very interesting.

I recomaned all of you to visit this city, and the las track is that there are the famous dams.

The place I'll talk about is situated in the north-west of Italy. It's a very visited place and everybody goes there because of a special monument.

The monument that I'm talking about is not too big, it's only 55 meters high but it has a special thing that no other monument has. It was built by a lot of persons and it took more than 100 years to can be finished. It is white.

I've been there and it's so interesting to visit it because you can go up the monument and you can see all the monuments that are arround.

Where the Hell am I talking about?

I'm talking about a place which is called *****.

It's located in a bay which is in the Pacific coast of an island that is called Honshu. It's one of the most populated cities in the world and it's the capital of this country. It also has a lot of diferent special wards, like Akihabara, Shinjuku or Shibuya.

This place is well known for its architecture, like the ***** tower (that has a height of 332m), the Sky Tree, the Rainbow bridge, the artificial island of Odaiba, the Imperial Palace or the Narita and Haneda airports.

During the WWII, this place was completely bombed and destroyed, but now a days it's one of the best cities in the world (at least for me).

Now think about where I'm talking about. If you still don't know that place, i'm giving you the last hint: this city was selected to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Where am I talking about?

This place is located on Catalonia, and it's an important city of this region. On this city there is an ancient cathedral. If you want to go to this cathedral you have to raise a lot of stairs. The inside of the cathedral is very depressive, too dark, with some candles and colourful windows. A big river pass   through the city, and there is a promenade next to the river, where you can go for a walk, do exercise or see the views. This city has a lot of visitors on spring, when this city has a special event called "Temps de flors", where the city comes too colourful and beautiful with a lot of flowers.

This place is located on the western coast of Europe, on the Atlantic Sea. It's one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen.

It's open to the ocean so there are big waves and strong currents. Close to the beach there's a very famous lighthouse. This place is also known because it's one of the westernmost points in Europe. Most people arrive here by car, but many, many people arrive here walking .

This place, and especially this beach, are one of the most impressive places I've ever been to. It reminds you that you're very small and the sea is very big. Helps to put things in perspective!
