How to survive when travelling with your partner

It is important where you travel to, but the most important thing is whom you travel with. For a long time I used to travel with a group of friends. We were experiencing all kinds of things and we got used to the long talks we had when drinking a bottle of wine or clubbing till 6 in the morning. Lately,  I just like to travel with my love, only the two of us. Traveling with your partner is a skill that needs to be mastered, especially if you have different personalities. You will be together for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There will be no job, gym time or other distraction that can give you time apart. Things like the ones mentioned below can easily happen and ruin your vacation and relationship: You are in a very chic terrace in Paris, one of the most romantic…

Sleeping under the stars in the jungle of Tayrona National Park

After two weeks in Peru, we arrived at the Caribbean Sea in the North of Colombia. We were supposed to have a trilling get away in the jungle of Tayron National Park. A real paradise. The perfect combination of wild jungle and green palms that make the perfect background for the turquoise Caribbean water. Tayrona is surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the world’s highest mountains on the coast, with altitudes of up to 5,700 meters and it is one of those places where you can enjoy peace and nature. There are four things that make this place unique: It is huge. We are talking about 15,000 hectares of wildlife and Caribbean beaches. It had a unique environment of fauna and vegetation. Tayrona is home of hundreds of species of birds, mammals, plants, but at the same time hundreds of fish and coral species. It still has indigenous tribes. Traces of…

Strolling in the Sacred Valley of the Incas

The Andean mountains and the valley surrounding the Urubamba River were once the epicenter of the Inca Empire because of the fertile land, perfect climate, natural resources and strategic position. It is one of the most stunning landscapes in the world and still maintaining its ancient characteristics, like the traditional clothes, spiritual ceremonies, language and the strong connection with Mother earth: “Pachamama”. Here is the place where you can find everything: from well preserved Inca ruins and agricultural terracing to authentic villages and cultural places.

How to Travel Peru

One of the destinations where we always wanted to get to was Peru. And now that we have visited it, we consider it one of the best experiences ever. Amazing desserts, the world’s highest mountain range, the world’s tallest navigable lake, welcoming people and, of course, Machu Picchu. What more can you want? We had two amazing weeks and tried to cover as much as possible from this beautiful county. But we are talking about Latin America where the public transportation system is not excellent. We tried to make the most of our time by using the Peru Hop buses from Lima to Cusco. And in Cusco we arrange some local travel agencies to help us to visit the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and of course Machu Picchu. Peru Hop is an Irish founded company in Peru, hop-on, hop-off style buses that take you to the most important spots in Peru. It was…

China’s size is incredible, stretching from the East China Sea all the way west to Central Asia. This is a country formed by so many territories: so different from each other and yet so similar. The Middle Kingdom, as it is called, is a country of superlatives—the most people, the largest palace complex, the highest skyscrapers—but looking closer and you’ll see also rural tribes working in the rice fields; the tea is still harvested by hand; people in some parts still live like in ancient times. After our 15 days trip through China we gathered for you amazing things to see and do in China. Here there are: 1.Hike the Great Wall of China Without a doubt, the most recognizable symbol of China’s rich history is the Great Wall.

From ancient underground cities to spectacular viewpoints, the Green Tour take you in the highlight of Cappadocia’s southern Landscape.

The time we visited there were not so many pigeon but we might say that it was too early in the morning 🙂 The name comes from the thousands of pigeon houses that have been carved into the soft tuff since ancient times. Although they can be found throughout Cappadocia, they are especially numerous in this valley. They were carved wherever space allowed, including abandoned cave houses and churches. In Cappadocia, pigeons have long been a source of food and fertilizer. The advent of chemical…
