All too often in the world nowadays we’re focussed on keeping up with those around us. Be it on social media or with material goods, there’s a lot of pressure on folks now.

From missing friends to parking in wineries, here are our 10 reasons why living in an RV will change your life.
Lebanon is located right beside the countries involved in the recent world's most serious conflicts. Although this little strip of land along the Mediterranean sea is so attractive for potential tourists, it might seem that tourism has virtually died out due to the civil war in the neighboring Syria. But is it true? Do you plan to visit Lebanon in spite of the fact that most of government websites discourage to do so? Find out if Lebanon felt safe for us - from a point of view of an ordinary traveler.
Japan has been getting extremely popular as a tourist destination in the recent years. The tradition, tranquility and old-style, magnificent architecture blends here with the ultra modern glass skyscrapers, world's most crowded streets and amazing technological advancement. Somewhere in the middle all of this, the Japanese culture is strongly rooted and there are lots of things at every corner that may come as a surprise for those who live in the West. This is the list of 10 things that surprised and shocked me in Japan the most.
The Chilean capital Santiago is one of the most flourishing in South America. The tallest skyscraper in the continent and extremely busy business center filled with futuristic buildings are located here. The city also boasts beautifully renovated older parts which resemble grand European cities. However, surprisingly, from a visitor's point of view the city, despite its charm, Santiago does not have too much to offer. The reason for that is that it's quite similar to other big capitals and lacks those bits of uniqueness you can find in some more off the beaten path places. Nevertheless, if you're visiting Chile, although I wouldn't recommend that you spend too much time in Santiago (Chile has way more exciting places), it's nice enough as a stopover for a day or two. Take a look at what we saw during our short stay.
The city of Marrakesh is often the first contact with Morocco for many. Thanks to the budget airlines that offer numerous connections with Europe, the gate to this exciting, exotic country were open and Morocco is constantly gaining in popularity. Marrakesh - with its old markets along the tiny, winding streets in Medina, unique architecture and numerous palaces is a good starting point to begin your adventure in Morocco. Although, due to the culture shock, Marrakesh wasn't my favorite city in the country (Fez, Essaouira and Chefchaoeun were better) - it's still worth a visit - you'll have a chance to see how diverse and chaotically beautiful Morocco is.
While visiting the majestic temples of the ancient city of Bagan in Myanmar, tempted by extraordinary photos and encouraged by the previous, amazing hot air balloon experience in Cappadocia, Turkey (take a look at my post about it), we decided to go for it and pay the extremely high price for the Balloon over Bagan flight. You live only once, after all. Not everyday you're in Bagan and can try something so unique - combining the air balloon flight with the overview of the whole magnificent area - miles and miles of land dotted with hundreds of various temples. All this in the warm rays of the rising sun. Sounds amazing, doesn't it? But in the end, was Balloons over Bagan really worth it considering the price?
Don’t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Africa’s magnificent wildlife.

Check out these ideas for the ultimate luxury safari experience.
Visitors who come to the UK usually head straight to London, oblivious to the little piece of heaven - Cornwall. Cornwall, in my opinion, is the most stunning and picturesque part of the UK. It's not that touristic (not counting the local tourists from the UK itself) and it has all the qualities of the British Isles plus something extra - the incredible, paradise beaches - beaches you would never guess are actually in the UK! Cornwall is extremely colorful and dotted with exceptionally beautiful little towns. It's a perfect gateway for those who love hiking, adventure, off the beaten path destinations and breathtaking natural scenery. We have driven all over the coast of Cornwall and in this post I'd like to share my favorite and most spectacular spots in this southwestern tip of the UK.
Berat in Albania is called "the town of a thousand windows". And that is so true. Looking at the beautiful houses "climbing" up the steep hill around the old town, you can't help but notice the seemingly endless number windows. Because Berat is beautifully situated in the mountains, it also offers amazing bird's eye views.
Both Berat and Gjirokaster (take a look at my post about Gjirokaster) are the most beautiful towns in Albania. Together with Mostar, Prizren and Ohrid, they form a district full of the distinctive Ottoman Empire architecture, unique for Europe. This region, although as rich in history and as attractive as the Spanish or Italian equivalents, receives hardly ever foreign tourists. But it's a good thing, you can explore what's best without annoying crowds and discover Europe's best hidden gem freely.
In this part I will describe the three northernmost islands that we visited in Lofoten - Vestvagoy, Gimsoya and Austvagoya. Because of the Haukland beach (one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen), this is probably my favorite part of the Lofoten archipelago. Haukland, because of its appearance, could be easily located in the tropics - with white, soft sand and turquoise waters. However, I must admit, that it's nearly impossible to have a favorite place in Lofoten as virtually all the spots are equally incredible - there are no words that can describe the natural beauty of this place (as I mentioned so many times in the previous posts - Lofoten South and Vaeory island).
