Pequenos Lencois, Brazil - The Other Side of Lencois Maranhenses

Pequenos Lencois, Brazil - The Other Side of Lencois Maranhenses

The main attraction of Lencois Maranhenses is of course the endless dunes which I described in the previous post. However, the second day of our trip in the region was no less exciting. The Pequenos Lencois which literally means "little Lencois" can also boast beautiful dunes filled with temporary lakes, rain forest rivers abundant with wildlife, golden beaches and tiny villages. And what's best, it's pretty much off the beaten path and you'll see very few tourists here.

The Bran castle is probably Romania's most popular tourist attraction as its associated with the main character of the famous vampire story - Dracula. Located in the forested region of Transylvania, it's easy to reach and visited by hordes of tourists and organised groups. But what is the castle really like? Is it unique and worth seeing? Or is it yet another overrated tourist attraction?

Blyde River Canyon and Crazy Bungee Jump in South Africa

Blyde River Canyon and Crazy Bungee Jump in South Africa

Blyde River Canyon is the most spectacular canyon in South Africa. Despite this fact, we hadn't initially planned to visit it. However, it turned out that the canyon is located on the way to the Kruger National Park so we thought: great! We could have a chance to see it. But it ended with hope only, because the nature played a prank on us and when we arrived we saw nothing but endless whiteness of the immensely thick fog. Nevertheless, this trip held a few more surprises and we didn't regret visiting the Blyde River region at all.

5 reasons to make your next holiday a surf holiday

In previous decades surfing used to be the preserve of counter-culture, pot smoking, beach bum types. The stigma associated with surfing was not a good one back in the 60’s and 70’s. But the times have changed. Since the 1980’s surfing has steadily begun to enter the mainstream, with over 35 million people across the globe now calling themselves surfers. In monetary terms this translates into over a $7 billion per year industry.

Kotor - The Best Place to See in Montenegro

Kotor - The Best Place to See in Montenegro

Kotor Bay is one of the two most photographed spots in Montenegro (the other is the incredible island of Sveti Stefan). The town of Kotor is unique in the sense that the bay cuts deeply into the land and the sea is surrounded by high mountains emerging directly from the blue waters of the Adriatic. The mountains create an unparalleled scenery that reminds more of Norwegian fjords rather than a Mediterranean region. However, looking at the spectacular architecture, old houses made of stone and multiple palm trees, you will quickly realize you are actually somewhere in the south and not in Scandinavia.

What to See in Astana - Ultra Modern, Shocking Capital Of Kazakhstan

What to See in Astana - Ultra Modern, Shocking Capital Of Kazakhstan

Astana is one of the controversial "brand new" capitals built on an enormous scale - similar to Ashgabat in Turkmenistan or Baku in Azerbaijan. Kazakhstan's capital defies all the presumptions and stereotypes a person from the West might have - especially those set in place after the famous comedy film "Borat" (as a matter of fact, "Borat" was not even filmed in Kazakhstan). Astana couldn't be more different from what you probably imagine Kazakhstan to be like. You won't find carts pulled by cows along muddy streets nor any wooden shacks that are deteriorating and falling apart. Walking through the large main boulevard, you might think you're in one of Dubai's luxurious neighborhoods rather than in some country in the middle of nowhere that no one is interested about.
