Why is Aberdeen called the Granite City? Aberdeen, located in the northeast of Scotland, is famously known as the Granite City. The city earned this nickname due to its stunning grey buildings made from locally quarried granite. The granite used in these buildings gives the city a unique, silver-grey glow, especially when the sun shines on them. This durable and attractive stone has been a cornerstone of Aberdeen's architecture for centuries, making it an integral part of the city's identity.

Kefalonia or Cephalonia, as you may see it spelt, was once a quiet island with fewer tourists visiting each year. However, since the release of the 2001 film Captain Corelli's Mandolin, the islands popularity has increased. The film, which was set on the island, also highlighted Kefalonia's towns and historical sites. Depending on the area, where you would like to visit or buy in, one of these towns will suit you, as there is a place for everyone in Kefalonia.

Looking for a place to visit in Belgium this summer? Why not visit the much loved Belgian city of Bruges?! Bruges is situated in the North West of Belgium. It is the biggest city of the Flanders region of Belgium and is also the capital of the region too. Being situated in the Flanders region means that the official language of the province is Flemish. Bruges is well known for being a Medieval city and boasts a lot of historical charm. This city has a look of its own and although it is often referred to as “The Venice of the North”, it has it's own style and is very unique.

The city as a whole has grown tremendously with many apartment blocks but the infrastructure such as roads and drains are still struggling to catch up. There are many areas that are very attractive indeed such as: Kaleiçi, with its narrow cobbled streets of historic Turkish and Greek houses in the old centre of Antalya that is now mainly hotels, gift shops, and bars. The large new hotels such as the Sheraton are along the coast above the Konyaalti and Lara beaches, and are spread along the coast in both directions far beyond the city of Antalya itself.
