Fairy Harbin: grand festival of ice sculptures
When we were kids, we used to build different figures of snow and ice, walking in the winter outside. The snow did not want to take shape, crumbled, and the ice stuck to the gloves. But those attempts had their romance. We grew up and forgot the childhood attempts to build the Snow Queen's residence. But there are still people who remember the snowy fun, and turn blocks of ice into sculptures and even entire cities. Wouldn't that be something really fantastic? Just believe it, live ice castles look amazing!

And sometimes, they have lots of reasons to do so, as there is hardly any small village or town where it is not something interesting to do: from nature walking to cultural destinations or interesting architecture.

5 Terrific Reasons to Visit Tarifa
The fine sand sifts between my toes. Eyes closed this time as I summon up the memory of the last time I was here. The salt air breathes pulling deep in through the nose brings the heart home. The utter dryness of the air is remarkable, even though I’m mere metres away from an ocean. The draw of the heat tightens my sun-protected skin. The sheer brightness of the sun penetrates the eyelids which instantly reminds me of how thankful I am for a good choice of sunglasses. I’m back there now, in my mind!
