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.

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

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.
