Italy is quite simply exquisite. It is a wonderland for travellers in search of breath-taking vistas, beautiful buildings and balmy weather, filled with delights both cultural and gastronomical. This is something visitors to its shores have long discovered.

Should you ever find yourself fortunate enough to visit, here are five authentic Italian dishes you can’t miss out on trying!
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 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.
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 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.
