Adventurous Travels

While most travellers go to Paris, London or Thailand, our friend Flavio, who hails from Brazil and currently residing in Ireland, is trying to show the unpopular and unknown side of the world. No tourists, no con artists. A paradise just for oneself that will turn out much better.

Flavio knows that budget is important and it is one of the factors why he has no regrets in choosing Albania and the Balkans in his last journey. "To cut costs, I try to get various deals, cheap flights and local accommodation which is way better than hotels that are identical in every country. I also travel light, without any excess of luggage", he says. 

ALBANIA ~ Blue Eye Spring
There are many things about travel that we can learn from our featured traveller. His advice is for us to go out of our comfort zone and not believe in what is trendy. He further suggests to explore the world beyond the well-known tourists spots and see how rewarding to travel this way.

And why did he like Albania that much? Let's find out!

7 Tips for a Successful Whale Watching Tour

Written by Cris Puscas

Did you know that South Africa is one of the best places in the world to go whale watching? You can even see whales as you walk on the coast paths or enjoy a meal at a restaurant with an ocean view! How cool is that?

Majestic animals that still intrigue us with their behaviour, whales have been part of the popular folklore and made appearances in books for centuries. If you are also fascinated by the fictional white whale from Herman Melville's novel "Moby-Dick; or, The Whale" and have always wanted to see whales in their natural habitat, a team has put together a useful list of tips to know before you go whale watching.

1. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience
Going on a whale watching safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Of course, each experience is unique and it really depends on luck, but even seeing the whales from a distance is a magnificent sight.

The Truth About the Happy People of Copenhagen

I was here in Copenhagen once. An easy access to a country close to Hamburg where I travelled last. A week short wandering around the city of Danes, one of the happiest people in the world. 

What made the Danes happier than people of other countries? Let's find out.

But before I jumped to the conclusion, let me tell you what happened and what I have seen in the city during my stay. The things that I am going to describe to you might be your deciding factor in visiting Copenhagen for the first time.

City Hall Square (Radhuspladsen) 

Let me start my story from the time I set foot in the Eurocity Rail Station. People are helpful. A local couple helps in finding our hotel, Sct Thomas which is a walking distance from the central train station. "Go walk straight and turn left and you will find your hotel in that street. You will pass through the City Hall Square (Radhuspladsen), so you won't miss it", she says in a very helpful manner.

Why Am I Revisiting Berlin?

Are you going back to a country if you have had bad experience on your last?

In my case, I would. 

And that is the reason why I am writing this to give justice to Berlin. I visited this city for a whole day tour with the intention of seeing its historical architecture. It was a brief stay but just enough to experience interaction with the local people. The good and the bad side of it.

I should have stayed at least three days because of its size. Berlin is Germany's largest city and the most populated. There are places that I missed and regret it up until now.
