Imagine a tremendous view which is formed at Tiren, one of the arms of the Mediterrean Sea, by the houses coming together that are not very attractive when you think seperately. Even this piece of world is very distant from the city and lacking in a lot of opportunuties, think of a place which gives you a feeling of getting lost in the blue of the sea’s and stimulates happiness and peace inside out. Cinque Terre is exactly the place for these. Advertisements
GNCFest has been organized by Turkey’s biggest youth club gnctrkcll in the past years and traveled a lot of cities in Turkey, underwent a change of concept. The festival would be held in Istanbul as a one-day, interactive organization. As soon as Pharrell and Rita Ora were added to the festival’s line-up, we were looking forward to the 7th of September. GNCFest’14 in ITU Stadium met our expectations and left a joyful Sunday memory with 12-hours full of music. The stadium was filled with more than 20 thousand people and as the Chasing Wonders team while enjoying the festival, we did not forget to take notes in case you missed it or just want to relive the day.
May be one of the youngest and most creative spots in Milan, Corso di Porta Ticinese is named after Porta Ticinese: meaning Ticino Gate. Located in the city’s historical center and under construction like most of the other gates in the city nowadays, the gate was built in 16th century as a part of Mura Spagnole and it was demolished back in 19th century. After the demolition, a new structure was built and it has been in the same form since that time. Corso di Porta Ticinese connects world-famous Torino Street to Duomo Square and is home to San Lorenzo – built in Roman Empire era and completed in 16th century-, Sant’ Eustorgio churches – once a very important destination for pilgrims since it was where the Magi graves were – and Basilicas Park – connecting the Sant’Eustorgio churches together -. Along with all of these, Corso di Porta Ticinese is one of the liveliest spots of the city with its small shops where you can buy original products, aperitivo restaurants and night life.
Highly expected by indie-rock lovers, Beirut has given an outstanding performance last night and as one of their song said: had left a Sunday smile on our faces. The concert was accompanied with rain, but of course this didn’t stop Beirut fans. A happy crowd had already taken their places for this unforgettable performance. As the Chasing Wonders team, we were there too. While sniffing the air of the concert for you, we had the opportunity to see our very much loved band live. And, of course, we fed our souls with music. 🙂
I believe in putting in a bit of legwork when it comes to explore a city. That is why I’ve been chasing a map and continuously on the move since I came to Milan. One of those days spent on foot searching for Duomo, I explored the “Corso Venezia“. At first sight, Milan is a little cold and dark for those who are used to warm and sunny cities but It’s also full of surprises just like the one and only Corso Venezia if you are not afraid of getting lost. Sweet little cafes, vintage boutiques, fruiterers and a huge park “Indro Montanelli” with a museum hidden in it are waiting for you to find them in Corso Venezia.
