The Mulhouse Zoological and Botanical Park is a French zoological park located in the Grand Est region in the departement of Haut-Rhin, in the southeast of the city of Mulhouse, district of Rebberg. Created in 1868 by philanthropists industrialists, led by Charles Thierry-Mieg son, he was successively the property of the Cercle mulhousien, of the Industrial Society of Mulhouse, and then of the City from 1893. It is now managed by the agglomeration community of Mulhouse region, Mulhouse Alsace Agglomeration. Its director is, since 2010, the veterinary Brice Lefaux.

I really enjoy the moment by learning about animals life, observing and taking picture. I used mainly my zoom 70-300 to take those pictures because you stay quite far from the animals. If you wish to visit it, I recommend you to take a day because it is very big and beautiful, you will don’t fill the time passing. When I was visiting it was the open days, so we were able to talk to the professional team during the visit and learn about there jobs.

Cagliari – Sardinia

Sardinia is a great place to spend your summer vacations. I went to the south part of Sardinia in a city call Cagliari.

In Sardinia you can enjoy the beautiful dry nature landscape, the good temperature (about 35 °C average), the Italian food (amazing) and the kindness of local people.
