Sounds and smells

Filed under: Uncategorized — podtourz @ 3:22 pm

Photographs can only give you so much of a travel experience. For instance I could take a picture of a French market, but it wouldn’t have the feeling of the life – the noise – the stallholders shouting out – the bustle.

Sounds are an important part of travel. For instance in Europe I could tell you what country I’m in, blindfold, by the sound of the church bells. Carillons playing bright tunes in the Netherlands. The amazing cacophony of all the different huge bells ringing at once in Russia. The mathematically exact peals of England.

So I was overjoyed to find this site which lets you hear the bells of Verona cathedral. And it has some pictures of them, too. What a fantastic sound.
