Where beauty meets adrenaline – incredibly dangerous roads

The Death Road, Bolivia via worldfortravel.com

Valli del Pasubio, Italy Of course from a point on there’s restricted vehicle access, but when did this last stop anybody? And if drivers tend to think twice before venturing, the cyclists aren’t made to follow the rules. What makes it famous are the stunning views and the legend says that you can’t just go there only once. The true surprise that people most often don’t expect when coming to this place is the huge…

An untold tale from Central Asia – Uzbekistan in pictures

Registan, Uzbekistan by Ben Smethers

As I’ve tried to point out in other posts, there are many countries under the auspices of a more general category known as off the beaten path. I stand by the belief that not being the top-of-mind option for travelers isn’t necessarily an indicator of its actual quality as a destination. In fact, most of the times, this etiquette is all about the lack of popularity instead of the place itself. Uzbekistan is one of the many examples on the list…

There’s a whole special adventure you might be missing out on – participating to fall festivals in Europe. But even with the ever growing popularity of Oktoberfest, going to fall festivals still isn’t too high on the travel lists of Europeans. There’s a few reasons why this happens – first of all, everybody loves taking vacations in the summer, dispatching the autumn as a grey and monotonous season. Here, I’ll show you why this is…

I could tell you all the reasons why autumn is the best time for a Eurotrip, but winter would come by the end of my enumeration. So I’m only going to focus on the really helpful things. First of all, there are fewer people, given that most of the holidays are ended by September. It could seem like this is a disadvantage at first, but the true upside of this is that there will be…

There are many places you can come from by ferry to France. It would be an ingrate position to praise France, it would mean to say that it’s not popular enough to speak for itself, and that’s just false. However, from Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney, Algeria and Spain and to Ireland, Morocco or Tunisia. Ferry to Calais or Dunkirk from Dover. Both the ports give access to the amazing French motorway network, so the decision should…

The best holiday – a stoner’s guide to countries where weed is legal

Photo Source: rnw.nl

Especially if you’re under the age of thirty, but it’s not a rule, you probably take into consideration other things than the general usual before taking a trip. This is how you’re maybe not interested solely in the weather, museums, coffee houses and the lowest prices of hostels, but more. Taking a trip is very often associated with fun. And, like it or not, most of us think that soft drugs are one of the…

Great alternatives to disappointingly expensive popular destinations

Saint Tropez/Budva Whenever you think of extravagance and opulence, Saint Tropez has got it. Partly because of the French style and classy fashion, partly because of the former model Brigitte Bardot, the French Riviera slowly became one of the hot spots of amazing holidays. The kind of place or, if you don’t want to go on your honey moon, at least you should be there for the bachelor party. Of course, along with this huge…

brazil_beach_4070k

  It’s amazing how many things can say ‘you’re a tourist here’, and while thinking of all of them is almost impossible, the basic’s always good to be known. From eating in a weird position to talking loudly or dressing oddly, there’s always something to put you off when you want to live like a local someplace new. But during the World Cup this year, given the state of things where everything’s overcrowded, we strongly…

Russia is many things to many people – and so is Sochi. Sochi was the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics, and you’re probably wondering why there’s still a lot of fuss around it – especially since the Winter games ended a while ago. Well, by now, you’re probably assuming that Sochi is a destination for winter lovers – but here, I’m gonna give you quite some reasons for which it’s pretty much the contrary…

Beach free things you can do in Brazil, off the stadiums

Tijuca_620

There are lots of things you can do in Brazil, and it’s too bad that all most of people know about are the beaches and the annual Rio de Janeiro carnival. There’s really a lot more to this place than the things that make it popular. And since the World Cup’s starting in a couple of days, it would be helpful if you knew all the other activities that you can do, without counting the…
