Bali is the place where you will be first stormed by an abundance of impressions, noise and smells, just to find bliss shortly thereafter. Being referred to as the "island of gods", it holds many secrets in store about ancient temples, mighty deities and traditional life which evolved during the rise and fall of the different kingdoms being once in charge. Today, Bali welcomes travelers from all over the world, keeping different promises depending on the kind of tourist addressed to. The lovely Indonesian island has it all: a thrilling nightlife for the sleepless party tourists alongside peaceful oases to relax and immerse yourself in local life.

Traveling to new places often requires us to adapt to new environments, new people, new cultures. To cut a long story short: when we travel, we're constantly learning about the truth of a country. We do this by getting to know its history, how the lives of the people here developed throughout time, what core events took place and in which venues. Each country has a story to tell: about the perks of reality, the turbulences of the past and the prospects of the future. Bosnia & Herzegovina is a fairly unusual destination for the average traveler. People who decide to travel to this part of the Balkans are truly interested in the history and the challenges people living here had to face in the past until present. We've chosen … (Continue reading)

Heat can become a real burden in Bali. In combination with the high humidity it can literally drag one down, making it tiring to set a step out of the air-conditioned coffee shop. While staying in Ubud, we tried to beat the load of heat rays by looking for cool water spots. Air Terjun or Waterfalls are the best refreshment on hot and sticky days Ubud is quite far from the beach or any place to go for a swim but there are some waterfalls nearby. The waterfalls are great for cooling down in the heat, especially in the rainy season when the waterfalls look more impressive and they are less crowded. We decided to research all of Bali's waterfalls and visited some of them. Most of Bali's waterfalls … (Continue reading)
Although the majority of the waterfalls around Bali are turned into a profit machine – local supervisors charging entrance fees – there are still some that can be accessed for free. One of them is Air Terjun Pengempu waterfall located close to Ubud, in the area of Tabanan. The falling water streams into a pool with some spots deep enough to swim in. The highlight of local and foreign visitors is a liana, hanging down from a tree, which is used as a natural swing. It's great to watch Indonesian kids doing acrobatics on it.
The Azores are a family of three main island groups with São Miguel representing the biggest. After being introduced to low-cost airlines, more and more people take the chance, to explore the mysterious archipelago. A far-reaching history of high activity in three volcanoes has created space for incredible nature, exotic birds and unique adventures. This sounded like the best call for us to book a flight from Lisbon to Ponta Delgada at a price, that seemed impossible a few years ago. After a stay of 10 days in São Miguel (unfortunately with constant rain) we came up with 18 things you should see or do, in order to grasp the island's special flair. When I look back on the time I spent on the island – seeing plenty of … (Continue reading)
