Our winners today 🍍

🥇 Teotihuacan: the ancient Aztec city of the pyramids (Mexico VII) by @duvinca

Now, we leave the capital of Mexico in the direction of one of the most fascinating places to visit, a unique and unmissable visit. It is also quite easy to get to, a not too long journey and different transport options. You can go on small tourist buses, for example, which pick you up to take you there, where? We go to Teotihuacán, the ancient imperial Aztec city of incredible pyramids that are still there showing us a part of the culture that lived in those lands many centuries ago. During the trip, before arriving we stop at a workshop where they make typical artisanal pieces of that culture as well, pieces that will always remind us of Mexico and we also find others that are somewhat more current or recognizable, like that typical big hat. And in the surroundings, the prickly pears grow on those cacti that decorate the path.

🥉 Iulia Hasdeu Castle in Câmpina(Romania), travel among legends, ghosts and seances by @triplug

Some time ago I was reading some information about a castle in Romania, more precisely in the town of Campina which according to legends is haunted, so I put this location on my short list and now it's time to visit it and today we will visit it together. The castle is located on Carol I Boulevard in Campina, Prahova county. Visiting hours are from Tuesday to Sunday between 9 am and 5 pm (the schedule may be different in winter). The cost of an entrance ticket for one person is 15,75lei/3euro. We were accommodated in the city of Ploiesti and on the way back home we took a little detour from the main road to Campina, in a relatively short time we were already in the parking lot near the castle (parking is free). As soon as I passed the entrance gate I saw the castle, wow, that was the first impression.
