... territory, a real mix of old and young, and different nationalities. I attempted to get some sleep, but as per normal on any form of transport found this impossible, ironically until the roughest, bumpiest section of road, when I woke up on a German lady’s shoulder on the verge of dribbling.

Tourists are able to amble through this mesmerising building, gawping at the immaculate decor. We all agreed it's one of the most stunningly furnished religious buldings we've visited, but it does makes you wonder what Nobel men, Priests et al would make of such extravagance today. Winning ...
