Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world, and a 2 weeks trip is barely enough to scratch the surface. Expecting to see it all in a short time is unrealistic. You have to decide beforehand which are Brazil attractions you don’t want to miss. And from there, build your Brazil trip. Read about my itinerary to some of the most beautiful spots in Brazil.
The ultimate guide to hiking the Causeway Coast Way, one of the most scenic coastal walks in Europe. Including the Giant’s Causeway, a unique UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As the flight started its descent, the excitement mounted. I would soon reach Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city also nicknamed “the end of the world.”
From my window seat, I looked in awe at the ample bay surrounded by mountains and counted the minutes.
Anyone with a passion for alpine ski competitions is familiar with the town of Kitzbuehel, in Tirol, and the Hahnenkamm – also called Streif – the most famous downhill race together with Wenger’s Lauberhorn, in Switzerland.
Alpine ski indeed remains one of the leading attractions of this famous village in the Austrian Alps, but Kitzbuehel has become over the last years a paradise for outdoors in Tirol, with plenty of activities to do across the seasons.
Combining the passion for mountains and walking with love for modern architecture may sound odd, even a contradiction, but that’s what you’ll experience hiking Vorarlberg, following the Architecture Path, in northwestern Austria.
This four days hike in the Bregenzerwald between mountains, green pastures, lovely villages, beautiful old houses and superb modern alpine architecture is unique. Neighboring Switzerland, Germany and the Lichtenstein Principality, the Bregenzerwald (meaning the Forest of Bregenz) is an area where old traditions blend with creativity and long-standing craftsmanship. The result is a region like no other, where there’s something for everyone.
It’s hard to imagine anything more charming than small alpine lakes, with their pristine water whose colors range from dark blue to emerald green or turquoise.
Whenever I go hiking in Switzerland, and I do all I can to make that happen as often as possible, I’m always on the look for some new mountain lake, and I don’t mind taking a longer route to discover another lovely spot.
Forget the Cinque Terre and go hiking Portofino!
All right, this might be a bit of an overstatement – after all, the Cinque Terre are one of the most popular destinations in Italy for international travelers – but believe me, the area of Portofino Natural Park is beautiful.
Provided that you go off-season. But this is true almost everywhere in Italy if you want to beat the crowds.
If you’re an independent traveler, you’ll love a road trip in Northern Ireland! People are very friendly and the scenery is simply stunning!
I collected the rented car at Belfast’s airport and with a little apprehension – it was my first time driving on the left – I headed toward the Causeway Coastal Route.
I started my Northern Ireland road trip, and it was love at first sight.
