    Travel with me through my eyes of a fine city

    You may wonder what Singapore is like. You may have heard the good and the bad of it. I believe that Singapore is one of the greatest cities in the world and everyone should at least visit once in their lifetime before your last breath. There are so many beautiful places to see and eat. No matter how small the country or the negative aspects you have been told. They are wrong. Even as a local, there are places to explore and places you have not been to.

    Tips for Planning a Family Trip to Vancouver

    Tips for Planning a Family Trip to Vancouver

    Vancouver is a beautiful city located on Canada's Pacific coast in the province of British Columbia. Sandwiched between mountains on one side and beaches on the other, it offers visitors a wide variety of unforgettable experiences for the whole family. Vancouver is a few hours north of Seattle, Washington, and in many ways the cultures are similar. In other words, Vancouver is a haven for outdoorsy types as well as those who enjoy vibrant nightlife and an eclectic restaurant and shopping scene.

    Durlston Castle to Anvil Point Lighthouse

    As the crow flies, or given the location, as the seagull flies, the distance from Durlston Castle to Anvil Point Lighthouse is about 1000 metres. Without any foreknowledge the walker can see the lighthouse from the castle and, as in my case, set off in high expectation of a reasonable walk.

    Antevasin

    So, you might be reading this upon reflection of your recent wanderlust adventures. Remembering those nights under skies and stars. Those passing days that mingled perfectly; its fulfilment and satisfaction based entirely around the square parameters of a city map in the palm of your hand. You are craving it again. To be out there in the wilderness, happily lost amidst the perfect chaos of it all. Where nobody knows who you are, nor do they care or expect anything from you but a passing smile on the streets of somewhere. Well let me tell you, that feeling that you keep homing in on constantly is not a negative one at all. It's your inner consciousness coming out, giving you a navigation to who you actually are. It’s as if the inner chemistry of your body repels the connections that it has already sought and lived through before; the paleo pull is dramatically pulling you elsewhere. But the question is to where, why and what is the journey like ahead for those who cannot remain in one place for too long?

    How to get over the fear of solo travel

    How to get over the fear of solo travel

    Everyone should travel solo at least once in their life. It is a very rewarding experience that will leave the traveler feeling more confident and capable. Recently, I went on my very first solo travel trip but it took me a few months to feel comfortable enough to travel on my own. I get it, traveling alone can be scary especially if you are a woman. In fact, if someone had asked me two years ago if I would ever travel alone my answer would have been a definite "no". But oh how the times have changed. I have compiled a list of the top five biggest reasons people (and my past self) are afraid to travel alone and how to get over that fear. Let me start by saying that there are so many reasons to travel solo and only a few keeping people from the world. People travel solo not because they can't find someone to go with them, but they make the conscious choice to do so. Even if you prefer to travel with someone else, life is too short to wait around for others.

    You can fly to Majorca with the Travel Agency or you can arrange the trip yourself. Of course, as always, both solutions will have their supporters and opponents. From the entry about the Hotel you already know that we organized our trip by ourselves. So how to organize a trip to Majorca? And more importantly, what to see in Mallorca? This entry will be on the bank long, because although I tried very hard to limit the number of photos, I have the impression that on average it worked out. But it's only because these frames are just necessary here. They will say more than a thousand words.

    Rawai is one of the nicest areas on Phuket in my opinion. It's quiet, the resorts I have stayed at there are reasonably priced and I never have had a problem finding really good Thai or Farang foods there. It is home to Rawai Landing Pier my number on pick for places to watch and photograph sunrises (see my article here) and several unnamed beaches along the west coast of Phuket that are quite nice and tourist free. Rawai Beach on the other hand is not even in my top ten favorite beaches on Phuket.

    All that Willa wants to do after she climbs Mount Meru is to treat herself at Pizza Hut. I was not very surprised to find a local in the area around Shoppers Supermarket, the Plaza. Around the area one could see parked Land Rovers, unusually clean and seemingly out of place, lacking the African Savannah in the background. Arusha Town is quite a different landscape to explore. It is bustling with cars and its walls remain peeled by unforgiving humidity. The windows oxidized by the tropical rains. It is an urban area that grew despite the biome that surrounds it. This part of nature did not expect to be paved over or built on top.

I had pinned on GoogleMaps several places I didn’t want to miss, but I also left some room for improvisation.

    The grass, scorched and scratchy stems pricked the skin on my legs as I sat in the African red dust. The children on either side of me were holding my hands, their eyes wide in fascination as they traced their fingers up and down the blue and purple veins in my wrist. They poked every freckle, pinched my fingernails.

    Reasons To Know: Why Backpacking Trip is in Trend Nowadays

    Before the birth of civilization and human civilization as we know it, humans made clans and roamed the world in nomadic clans. Now before we had countries and boundaries and world wars, people were simply looking for the best place that would tend to their needs along with the needs of their clansmen. So they took many years of roaming around the planet to find that resting place, people migrated from one place to the other depending on the weather of places. This wandering was done on foot and if not on foot people used horses and other such animals to help them look for their homeland.
