The Upward Spiral

I’m not sure what to feel about new year. I just hope I would be able to do something. Continue to experience & explore new things & places. I can’t stand monotonous life. It’s just not for me. It makes me feel awkward mentally.  For me life is kinda stop when I stop exploring. I’m still exploring in a way but in a different way. More like exploring knowledge & myself through books & countless articles. Getting more knowledge of any kinds give me sort of satisfaction. I never really realize that knowledge is really that powerful. Previously all I know is that, u need knowledge to pass the exam & that’s it. Talk about Malaysian education system failure at its finest.

Anyway as I wrote in my previous blog entries, I had mention that I’m still trying to figure out a way to prevent depression recurrent. I can’t say that I found it yet but I think I sort of found some ways to deal with it. I read this book called “The Upward Spiral: Using Neuroscience to Reverse the Cou…

My trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum (Part 2)

Continuation from Part 1

Herculaneum

I gotta say u need the whole day to visit Pompeii alone unless if u go there during summer. U probably have enough time to visit both Pompeii & Herculaneum during summer (longer sunlight for u but crowded). The next day u can visit Herculaneum & Naples Archeological Museum. I wish i’d visited Naples Archeological Museum because i want to see those frescos & statues in Secret Museum! But i totally don't have time!

How to go to Herculaneum from Ercalano station?

Out from Ercalano station go down & walk straight (or use taxi which I avoid) all the way for 15-20 minutes (not that near) until u found a wall gate with latin alphabet ‘HERCVLANEVM’ & need to walk further for like 10 minutes until u reach the ticket entrance.




The main entrance to Herculaneum. It looks pretty dark because of the backlight



This is how Herculaneum looks like from the top while u walk along the long path to go to the site from the main entrance. As u can see here, Herculaneum is actually resides beneath the modern city.




Here u can see the modern house located exactly on the top of the old Herculaneum villa. The excavation of the whole Herculaneum was incomplete. I believe there are still a lot of other villas that have not been discovered yet due to this issue.




Mount Vesuvius looks much more nearer from here

Can see the part of the villa which was burn hundreds (or thousand ?) of years ago



 The villas here were more well-preserved than Pompeii


I haven't really finish visiting the whole place at this time & it was already dark & near to the closing time. There were only a few tourists wandering around. I have to admit I was a little bit scared since I was all alone lol.
