Twitter Twelve

Last Friday, March 13, I was told it was my twelfth Twitter anniversary. And I got a nice 12 picture. Better to post about that here than let it float out of sight on Twitter. Twitter is a nice communication tool, but it lacks the searcheability of a blog. However it is a nice tool to hone your arguments in some discussions. Usually I spend one or two times a day some minutes on it.

3D Printed Sand Resort in Mozambique to Open soon

Kisawana Sanctuary
Kisawana Sanctuary will open in 2020

Prices start at $8,124 a night for a one bedroom bungalow and while that certainly is steep, not only will you be able to boast about your stay in the 3D-printed sand kingdom, but you’ll even get your own private chef, dedicated staff, a spa, diving, a marine safari, and access to your own electric vehicle and e-bike.

Benguerra Island is situated 14 kilometers off Mozambique, on the Eastern coast of Africa. Part of the Bazaruto Archipelago, this WWF National Marine Park is home to some of the richest and least explored subtropical ecosystems in the Indian Ocean.

Ieper: Main Street Hotel

Found a weekendhotel in Ieper (or Yper) Belgium: Main Street Hotel

Main Street Hotel is a pretty special boutique hotel in the original heart of Ypres, made to surprise and please guests!
Built between the 2 world wars in 1938, the red-bricked town house was also used to sell and roast coffee-beans. In 2008 the house got stripped, re-designed, completely renovated, filled with intriguing curiosities and opened as the Main Street Hotel on the 1st of April 2011!

It was quickly noticed to be something out-of-the-box and –although small – became the number 1 hotel in Flanders.

Main Street Hotel has been rewarded by the Trip-Advisor reviewers with wonderful reviews that gave the hotel a Travelers’Choice Award each year: best service in Belgium, best small hotel in Belgium, most romantic hotel in Belgium,… Main Street Hotel pleases in so many ways!

If you see the breakfast photo’s on their sites: They are mouth watering!

I was in Ravenna, Italy, and visited this unusual round church of Santa Giustina. It is named after a 3rd century Martyr Giustina who was murdered because she was a christian under the Diocletianus ceasarship. It is built on the remains of an earlier place of woreship. It is located next to the Duomo.
