Navagio beach in Greece: best free location to see the shipwreck in Zakynthos island

Navagio beach in Greece: best free location to see the shipwreck in Zakynthos island

You'll be impressed by the shipwreck in Navagio beach, its crystalline water and fine beaches, and Zakynthos island will be one of the highlights of your trip in Greece! Our suggestions will help you to get the most from your visit. We are not sure why so much accent it's put on the shipwreck, when all of the beauty of this stunning natural place is actually due to its incredible rock formation, the white sand beach and the crystal blue water. You might not believe it, but the colours of the photos are actually no ...

Travelling by ferry in Indonesia: our photo reportage from an overcrowded Pelni vessel

Travelling by ferry in Indonesia: our photo reportage from an overcrowded Pelni vessel

The idea of travelling by ferry in Indonesia can be frightening for first time visitors, given the high amount of accidents happening on Indonesian waters and news coverage. But the state owned company Pelni has revealed to be safe for the last 30 years or so, as we explained in our previous article about the safety of Indonesian ferries. Embarking on a long trip by ferry in Indonesia, means to be able to experience real life as locals do, what they eat, how they behave and socialise and much more. Still wondering ...

Our work exchange experience in the UK: plastering with clay a straw-bale roundhouse

After a couple of years of break from work exchanges, because of our 1 year scholarship in Indonesia and following trips, it was about time for us to start slowing down our traveling style and to learn new skills for our future projects.It was end of September. While being in Belgium, we took a bold decision and decided to turn West and chase the winds towards UK, instead of heading south for the milder upcoming Autumn and Winter seasons. We did that with one purpose in mind: to learn the skills on how to build our ...

House sitting in Greece: Delenia, a hidden pearl on the Aegean Cost

House sitting in Greece: Delenia, a hidden pearl on the Aegean Cost

In the beginning of our travel in Greece, we were very lucky to spot a last minute house sitting assignment and be accepted for 2 weeks in Delenia: a remote rustic property on the island of Evia (Euboea in Greek), and a very special touristic resort for groups in the summer months, placed on the rocky shores of the Aegean Coast, like a kingdom facing the never ending turquoise sea beneath. The closest contact with civilization from where one can get his food supplies, was the village of Nea Styra 15 km away, an adv ...

Hiking beyond Balea Lac and experiencing our favourite views in the Transfagarasan trip

Hiking beyond Balea Lac and experiencing our favourite views in the Transfagarasan trip

After experiencing the most famous road-trip in Romania, the Transfagarasan Highway, we were not expecting to be even more impressed by the hiking possibilities in the surroundings of Balea Lake! We stopped at the highest point of the road, where this high mountain crystalline basin is delighting its visitors, and camped for one night with the intention of exploring further the area. We have already described in another article our experience hiking around Balea Lake and Capra Lake, so in this article we will fo ...

Hiking around Balea Lac to Capra Lake. Was it worth?

A multitude of amazing hiking possibility with plenty of different paths for any level, all starting from Balea Lac, are waiting to be explored if you are planning to cross the Transfagarasan highway in Romania. You'll be impressed of how much beauty you can see with so little effort, since at Balea Lac you are already close to the highest altitude you can reach in Romania!

Road trip to Transfagarasan highway, a scenic Romanian mountain road not to be missed!

Since the first time I visited Romania 6 years ago, I started to hear stories about this mythical road trip on the roof of Romania along the Transfagarasan Road, that every adventurous visitor shouldn't miss on his journey to Romania. This summer we happened to be in Romania to visit Oti's family at the beginning of the summer, and the period coincided with the opening of the road, usually accessible only for 3 full months a year (July to September). Access is restricted according to snow conditions, so be sure to ...

Cheow Lan Lake: Kayaking surrounded by the jungle

Cheow Lan Lake: Kayaking surrounded by the jungle

Our experience kayaking in Cheow Lan Lake inside Khao Sok National Park, is one of the best travel memories I have of my peregrinations not only in Thailand but around the whole world. I've been travelling almost non-stop for the last 6 years, and after having seen so many different places I rarely remain impressed of something. But Cheow Lan Lake seriously stole my soul and is now permanently added to my mental shortlist of natural wonders. It was like a natural Dolby Surround System hitting my sensory organs wit ...
