The Grand Palace Chakri "The Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat ", built during the reign of king Rama V in 1876, serves for the reception of foreign ambassadors and delegations. Chakri Palace is surrounded by greenery and flowers. The Palace was designed in Italian Renaissance style, but the roof has retained the classic features of Thai architecture. In the West wing of the building housed the apartments of the king, and in the Eastern apartment of the Queen. The unusual design was the result of a dispute between king Rama V and other members of the Royal family. King Rama V wanted to give the building a purely European species, while other members wanted to build a building with a distinct Siamese spires. #travel #traveling #travelgram #thailand #traveler #vacation #vacations #instatravel #instatraveling #instatrip #instagramanet #lovethailand #tourist #trip # # # # # # #ismith #bangkok #ismith777 # # # #ilovethailand #f4f

Descobrimos que a guarda

Descobrimos que a guarda do Vaticano Sua. Voc sabia? Na verdade nem todos os turistas e peregrinos que vo a Roma e tentam fazer uma foto com a Guarda Sua na entrada do vaticano, conhecem a histria destes soldados que juram total lealdade ao Papa. Mas para entender o porque dessa escolha, devemos voltar poca do Renascimento e aos motivos que em 22 de janeiro de 1506 levaram o Papa Jlio II a trazer para Roma os soldados suos: por sua fortaleza, por seus sentimentos nobres e lealdade proverbial, eram considerados invencveis. O grande historiador latino Tcito, muitos sculos antes, havia dito a seguinte frase: Os helvticos so guerreiros, famosos pela bravura de seus soldados. Por isso, os Cantes suos, com suas alianas uma hora com uma parte e uma hora com outra, jogavam um papel importante na poltica europeia. Como aliados de Jlio II, em 1512, decidiram, na verdade, o destino da Itlia e receberam do papa o ttulo de defensores da liberdade da Igreja. Naqueles tempos em que era normal ser um mercenrio, o ncleo central dos Alpes abrigava uma populao de guerreiros. O uniforme atual da Guarda Sua foi criado pelo coronel Jules Reponds, comandante do corpo no incio de 1900. Ele se inspirou em pinturas do famoso pintor Raffaello, onde em algumas de suas pinturas so presentes pessoas vestidas com trajes semelhantes. No absolutamente verdade, portanto, a teoria da criao de uniformes criados por Michelangelo, pura lenda. E olha que at ns acreditvamos nessa histria! #vaticano #italia #italy #italian #guardas #curiosidades #historia #trajes #viagens #viajarpreciso #cultura #instatravel #instaviagem #instatrip #instacultura #instahistoria #instaitalia #casalviajante #casalmochileiro #casaltrip #pelomundo #portovelho #pvh #amazonia #viagens #dicasdeviagem

Young and Live. Young and Die. . . . Naoshima, Japan is an old fishing island scattered with villages that over time have dedicated themselves to being a representation of art and it's relationship connecting people to nature. Most hotels and hostels are museums themselves, with pieces and installations being ubiquitous on and off-grounds. The Chichu Art Museum was by far my favorite, with enormous Monet's, boundless architecture, and gazingly ponderous works. I'm always amazed by size of art and scale, so this place was quick to have me in awe. A must do for museum and art junkies alike. . . . #japan #naoshima #chichuart #instabackpacker #instatrip #museumjunkie #museums #monet #monets #japanese #japaneseart #naoshimaisland #openeyesopenminds #canon5d #canon #canon #canonphoto #instatravel #igjapan #igjapanese #instaart #art #findyourbeach #vagabond

An extract on #instatrip

During the 19th century, the Liberal Party was broadly in favour of what would today be called classical liberalism: supporting laissez-faire economic policies such as free trade and minimal government interference in the economy (this doctrine was usually termed 'Gladstonian Liberalism' after the Victorian era Liberal Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone). The Liberal Party favoured social reform, personal liberty, reducing the powers of the Crown and the Church of England (many of them were Nonconformists) and an extension of the electoral franchise. Sir William Harcourt, a prominent Liberal politician in the Victorian era, said this about liberalism in 1872: If there be any party which is more pledged than another to resist a policy of restrictive legislation, having for its object social coercion, that party is the Liberal party. (Cheers.) But liberty does not consist in making others do what you think right, (Hear, hear.) The difference between a free Government and a Government which is not free is principally thisthat a Government which is not free interferes with everything it can, and a free Government interferes with nothing except what it must. A despotic Government tries to make everybody do what it wishes; a Liberal Government tries, as far as the safety of society will permit, to allow everybody to do as he wishes. It has been the tradition of the Liberal party consistently to maintain the doctrine of individual liberty. It is because they have done so that England is the place where people can do more what they please than in any other country in the world...It is this practice of allowing one set of people to dictate to another set of people what they shall do, what they shall think, what they shall drink, when they shall go to bed, what they shall buy, and where they shall buy it, what wages they shall get and how they shall spend them, against which the Liberal party have always protested. The political terms of "modern", "progressive" or "new" Liberalism began to appear in the mid to late 1880s and became increasingly common to denote the tendency in the Liberal Party to favour an increased role for the state as more important than the classical liberal stress on self-help and freedom of choice. By the early 20th century the Liberals stance began to shift towards "New Liberalism", what would today be called social liberalism: a belief in personal liberty with a support for government intervention to provide minimum levels of welfare. This shift was best exemplified by the Liberal government of H. H. Asquith and his Chancellor David Lloyd George, whose Liberal reforms in the early 1900s created a basic welfare state. David Lloyd George adopted a programme at the 1929 general election entitled We Can Conquer Unemployment!, although by this stage the Liberals had declined to third-party status. The Liberals now (as expressed in the Liberal Yellow Book) regarded opposition to state intervention as being a characteristic of right-wing extremists. After nearly becoming extinct in the 1940s and 50s, the Liberal Party revived its fortunes somewhat under the leadership of Jo Grimond in the 1960s, by positioning itself as a radical centrist non-socialist alternative to the Conservative and Labour Party governments of the time.
