Every Friday, Googlers round up some of the best posts they came across during the week to celebrate the amazing discoveries Local Guides like you are sharing on Connect. This week, wine tasting in California, a trip to Cyprus, and more.
@KatyaL: “Wine Tasting Adventure in California” written by @KarenVChin is a great post to check out this week. She took a trip to Iron Horse Vineyards in Sebastopol, California to do a wine tasting with fellow Connect Moderator @ermest. Being a wine lover myself, it was very interesting for me to learn more about the vineyard and the sparkling wines they make there. @KarenVChin included helpful information about what makes this vineyard special, included both her and @ermest’s reviews on Maps, and even shared a video of their experience. The photos she included are beautifully shot and show how much fun they had drinking wine, taking in the scenery, and enjoying each other’s company. For me, this is the aim of every trip—to make you feel happy! That’s why I featured this post as one of the best this week.
@AngieYC: Indonesia is a country that has more than 17,000 islands and @MAliMaftuh recently shared info about one of the hidden gems. I had no idea about this island until I read his post, “Pulau Lampu Gorontalo.” His description and photos of the crystal clear water make me want to visit the island right away and dive in! He also provided great tips for first-time visitors.
@TsekoV: A post that caught my attention this week was @Shirley’s “A day in the mountains with a 360 Camera.” Her post brought readers to North America’s biggest ski resort, Whistler. The mesmerizing mountain views you can experience there are impressive. I also enjoyed learning more about @Shirley’s process using a 360 camera and seeing her great skills using it.
@InaS: While I was browsing on Connect a glimpse of the photo of an airplane immediately caught my eye. “First trip in 15 years; one week in Cyprus” shared by @Andréas_S_Eriksson made me want to take the first flight to Cyprus. In the post, @Andréas_S_Eriksson gives highlights from the visit including a trip to Chantara Waterfall, eating halloumi, and exploring ancient ruins left on the island.
