The name Italy comes from the word italia, meaning “calf land,” perhaps because the bull was a symbol of the Southern Italian tribes.
Budapest is one of Europe’s most impressive cities. Just walking through the streets is a real luxury for even the most inquisitive traveler.
With history and culture around every corner and a competitive currency exchange rate for the euro, visiting this city will always have its perks.
A world of wild contrasts
The most obvious contrast is between the annual seasons. The same lake where people come to swim and sail in summer forms a perfect skating rink or skiing arena in the winter. Warm, light summer nights gradually lengthen, until the snow settles and the late dawn merges colourfully into the early sunset during the midwinter season known to Finns as kaamos.

Artist / Jan Ironside
Jan Ironside's studio is located on the top floor of a 108-year-old house in the historic district of Rogers, Arkansas. There is no place she would rather spend her days and nothing she would rather be doing than painting. The geraniums are in her kitchen window, the spring tulips are in her grandmother's jar, and there are sunflowers in the neighbor's garden. Inspiration for her colorful floral works can be found everywhere!
According to Jan, "It is the paint that controls the creation. Creamy butter and cupcake icing come to mind to describe the feel of the oil paint on the palette knife." Because of this, Jan's impasto paintings have bright colors and a reach-out-and-touch texture.
