Chill out in cool­ing Europe

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HOLIDAY TREATS -

PIC­TUre this. You’re walk­ing down a cob­ble­stone street, leaves in vivid shades of am­ber, brown, or­ange and even pur­ple lit­ter the ground, a cool breeze en­velops you, and you look up to see stun­ning Baroque ar­chi­tec­ture loom­ing to­wards the sky­line. Where else could you get to ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing quite like this?

Al­though each pass­ing sea­son ren­ders a unique ex­pe­ri­ence al­to­gether, europe in au­tumn has a cer­tain glow and charm about it. It doesn’t mat­ter which euro­pean des­ti­na­tion you choose, each coun­try has some­thing spe­cial to of­fer and you won’t lose sight of those vi­brant au­tum­nal leaves. Great Bri­tain If you’re a city slicker, there’s Lon­don, one of the most met­ro­pol­i­tan cities in the world; if you’re a na­ture lover, the Lake District has a wide collection of lakes; and if you’re a cul­ture en­thu­si­ast, the renowned Mil­i­tary Tat­too, a mass spec­ta­cle of bag­pipes, will blow your mind (and eardrums too). Great Bri­tain cer­tainly is dy­namic and en­ter­tain­ing, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Cen­tral Europe Whether it’s the fa­mous rhine river that snakes its way from switzer­land to hol­land, the serene Lake Lucerne of switzer­land or the quaint canals of Am­s­ter­dam, there’s so much to see and do. Not only is the land­scape cap­ti­vat­ing, these coun­tries have mag­nif­i­cent build­ings dat­ing cen­turies old with a rich his­tory be­hind them, from the lar-

gest cathe­dral to the lit­tlest town house. The Mediter­ranean From Venice to Capri, each Ital­ian city be­speaks a charm like no other; its wind­ing cob­bled streets and nar­row al­leys speak for it­self. On the other hand, spain’s legacy is a ma­jor draw. Cor­doba, the last Moor­ish city, holds a great mosque and other great pieces of one-of-a-kind ar­chi­tec­ture. As Italy and spain are fa­mous for their abun­dance of squares, sim­ply sit­ting out in the pi­azza or plaza en­joy­ing the fresh air (al fresco) is a great way to chill out.
