It always amazes me to find new places to explore. Places that are simply amazing, but you didn’t even know existed. In 2013 I visited in Karlovy Vary (or Karlsbad ) in the Czech Republic. I didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by a charming town with brightly colored buildings and large hotels. Known as a spa town, there are several springs and the tourist shops sell tiny jugs that you can use to sample some of the water. The spring I sampled tasted like when you bite your lip and bleed in your mouth – the water had an extremely high iron content. This photograph is of the Mill Colonnade. It was built between 1871 and 1881 to allow visitors to enjoy the springs even in bad weather. It encompasses 5 springs.
