Photos to feed your wanderlust – discover mesmerizing Slovenia

I always like to imagine how Hemingway would have written about this place, partly because his talent would magically bring out the best in everything, and partly because there’s no chance to come here and not have a coup de foudre on this country. Slovenia is mesmerizing in every possible way, no matter who you are or where you’re from. Its beauty is discrete and bashful, yet energetic and vigorous. Lake Bled This crystal blue-green lake is…

Wonder-fall destinations to paint a portrait of Europe

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…

Get a sense of the metropolitan life in Shanghai

There is no typical guide to visiting this city, and the impossibility of making it fit into a pattern is what makes it so memorable, after all. Unlike many of the popular tourist destinations, it’s hardly possible to make a list of monuments of which the Internet says they’re a must. Instead, Shanghai is all about discovering the bewildering variety, unfolding on the street level. And although it’s called the Paris of the East, you’ll…

Terschelling – the European heaven for a weekend trip

It’s filled with fun and excitement all year long, and it’s the ideal place to discover the European wonders. The atmosphere is very different from what you usually expect to see in Netherlands, but the good kind of distinct: a unique nature reserve, arched-shaped and gracefully designed to make you come back for another holiday. I’ll just have to take the responsibility for this cliché, but if we’d have to choose the  European spot perfect…

North Korea how you’ve never seen it before

I’ve never heard anyone say anything positive about North Korea. And neither did the producers of this video, city-branding pioneer J T Singh and flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth. The video is presented as a need to properly inform the Western countries about what really happens there. A city vision through time-lapse photography, explained: There are numerous speculations about the way in which human rights are not respected in this country, how nothing’s popular aside from the…

These amazing sights in Scotland will blow your mind

Aside from the stereotypical image of men dancing in kilts while drinking beer in pubs until the sunrise, there are thousands of reasons for which you should believe that Scotland is one of the most fantastic places that could ever be on your bucket list, especially in terms of phenomenally stunning landscapes. Their uniqueness speaks of the country branding and makes even the most common view (for the natives) seem heavenly for the tourists around…

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

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…

The White House is an American icon. From its classicly clean french doors to the stately interior, it is immediately recognizable. However, few know details about its construction and several reconstruction projects. Initial construction began on the famous building in 1792, and a mere eight years later, President John Adams was the first to live inside it. Since then, the White House has had several major reconstruction projects, including the following: 1. Initial Construction On…

High places you have to see before turning 35

It’s weird how there are lots of places on Earth that look and feel like heaven, especially if you’re there at the right time. Some of them are of such outstanding, pure, raw beauty that their uniqueness is not only metaphorically a sight for sore eyes, but they could also work as therapy. Tianzi Mountain, China The first of these natural marvels is Tianzi Mountain, China. One of the four sceneries of Wulingyuan area, ‘The…

Must see underrated National Parks

Pueblo Bonito, New Mexico   The architecture of this place is overwhelming for all those who study anthropology, as well as for the ones who might visit the surroundings.

The overall aspect of the place is a semicircular shape embodying all these mound rooms. This style is typical…
