Corcovado National Park
It is situated within Costa Rica’s mass of jungles
which is known worldwide by ecologists and nature lovers as one of the most incredible
and biologically diverse locations in the world. Called “the most
biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic, it certainly
lives around its name when seen in person. Corcovado may be the sole investment
Costa Rica where you can see all four species of Costa Rica’s native monkeys
and hear them chattering and playing in the treetops.
Other animals like the graceful jaguar, the majestic
and endangered Harpy Eagle, silly sloths and noisy Red Macaws make their
residence within Corcovado’s lush canopies. A visit to Corcovado National Park
always promises a conference …

its prosperity, ever-changing lifestyle and exquisite historic sites. Life in
Shanghai can be a unique amalgamation of east and west. The city truly reflects
the lifestyle and culture of western nations. It offers a wide range of sights

This year Shanghai is hosting Expo 2019, which
comprises colorful festivals, exhibitions, and fairs from March to October 2019.
A few must-visit sites are mentioned below:
The Bund is situated in the middle a part of Shanghai.
It is an old historical area with beautiful buildings. Walking by its main
road, you’ll find an amazingly beautiful river on one side and multinational
banks, financial centers and consulates on the other.
City God Temple is renowned for its unique sculpture.
Originally, it was a temple where everyone was accustomed to arriving to pray
for their bright future. Nowadays, City God Temple is not just a temple but it
means the complete area surrounding the temple. Here, you will observe the
marvels of Chinese architecture, beautiful tea houses plus more.

Marrakech is a medieval city, with a historic palace
and Saadian Tombs. You will be amazed by the architecture of the building that
houses the Marrakech Museum, with beautiful works of art displayed in it. Take
a bus tour stacking around the main sites of the city, such as the Koutoubia
Mosque, built in the 12th century with beautiful gardens. Unfortunately there
is no access to the mosque for non-Muslims. Marrakech is a busy and vibrant place,
full of color and sound. It can be very busy so if you want to go away from it
for a while go sightseeing to the beautiful Ouzoud Waterfall where you will
meet lots of local monkeys. While relaxing with a drink at an outdoor
restaurant, this is a great place for a photo opportunity or even to ride a
camel into the desert and spend the night camping under the Moroccan stars. There
are many smaller towns close by that will fill your days with some wonderful
sights if you want to explore this charming country. An afternoon in the Square
of the Dead is delightful, with snake charmers, musicians and story tellers to
entertain all the family. Before you leave Marrakech, fly over the city in a
hot air balloon, it’s a wonderful experience and very memorable with some
fantastic views and plenty of photo opportunities.
Marrakech isn’t a beach resort, but if you want to
relax away from the bustling town then the harbour town of Essaouira is the
nearest beach to Marrakech, where you can experience some great water sports
like kite sailing and windsurfing along its broad sandy beach. It can be a
little windy, but when the sun is hot, the breeze is more than welcoming, you
can also try some horse riding along this …
Majorca is the largest island in Spain and is located
in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The original name of Majorca comes from
the Latin for the Big Island. Majorca is a sunny island that has been a
destination for British holidaymakers since holiday packages were reintroduced
in the 1950s, and its popularity has continued to increase ever since. Some
Brits liked the island so much that they decide to relocate there, ex-pats now
make nearly 12% of Spain’s population.
Majorca is divided up into fifty-three different
municipalities and since tourism accounts for eighty percent of the annual
income in Majorca, it gives this island an abundant amount of things which
tourists can jump right into. Whether you like shopping or relaxing, Majorca
has it all on one island.
Palma is the capital city
The capital city of Majorca, Palma, has a great
atmosphere and is full of examples of exquisite architecture which would be the
backdrop to any holiday snap which you can boast about back home. Palma, is
situated on the south-west coast of the island, has the best of both worlds
with the city supplying everything and anything which you could think of and
being dominated by the huge Palma Cathedral with its Gothic style (dating back
to 1601), to the beautiful sandy beaches just a stone’s throw away.
If you are not really into site seeing holidays then
there is also Magaluf, one of the biggest resorts in the municipality of Calvi?
situated right next to Palma. Here you can party all through the night and shop
all through the day if you so wish, perfect for the younger tourists or for
20-somethings on a fun summer break. If you manage to drag yourself out of bed
after clubbing, Magaluf also has two …
of the dead in Oaxaca, Mexico is the 1st and 2nd of November but for me it
starts with the first cool breeze that descends from the northern mountains and
brings to me feelings of inexplicable joy. I truly have no idea where these
feelings come from. I have asked myself this question for years now and I have
given up trying to find out. Magic, happiness and mystery fill the skies and
the very air I breathe at this time of the year. It’s time to take a trip.
out from Oaxaca City, where I live, to Tlacolula, where my extended family
lives, becomes a crossing into another world at this time of year. I observe
through half-closed eyes as the early morning sun rises over the mist covered
mountains bathing the valley in diffused golden light. As I look to my sides I
catch a glimpse of the marigolds in the open fields… the only time of year
that you can see them. I open the window of my taxi and let the cool air invade
my very being as I close my eyes and smell the Earth. The crispness, the
freshness and a penetrating feeling of well-being make me think I am still in
my bed dreaming. I want to jump out of the moving car and run up the mountains
that are just a short distance from my outstretched arms. Overwhelmed by
feelings, I sit back in my seat… just to be.
than I know it the 30 minute trip comes to it’s end and I ease out of the car
onto the sidewalk, pay my 15 pesos and head into the heart of Tlacolula. The
HEART of Tlacolula has a whole new and very real meaning this time of year
You always travel to new places, discover new cultures
and meet new people around the world. At the same time, you need to earn extra
money to fund your travel. The truth is you already have the ideas and you just
have to write it down and sell it to travel publishing company or travel sites
that buy articles from a travel writer.
This is a gold mine. Since you have been traveling,
surely you have learned about the new places and cultures. However, other
people don’t know what you have experienced. By telling your stories, you can
earn extra money for your travel and at the same time, build up your own
writing career. The earnings depend on your clients but overall, you can make
good money if you can constantly contribute good content for your clients. You
might contribute once a week or a few times a week if you have more information
Travel writing is indeed a blooming industry. More and
more people are jumping into the bandwagon. However, you need to know which
locations can really make more money for you since not all locations are
interesting. Do your research and check out some of the really interesting
cities, beaches or mountains to explore.
You never know what the readers are expecting because
you are feeding the readers with stories that only you know. They are getting
more excited to read whatever you have to offer. Therefore, finding the right
locations is really important. From time to time, your editors might tell you
what the feedback from readers. From there, you can craft your next articles to
suit the readers. Being a travel writer is indeed interesting. You get to see
the world and tell people about it while earning a handsome income. Be …
Relaxation and entertainment have different forms for
different people. While some go to movies or parties, others go for plays and
music shows. However, there are some for whom relaxation holds a completely
different meaning. Such people prefer to be in solitude or spend some quality
time travelling with their family or friends. Travelling can be great
experience as it can provide you with relaxation, entertainment and some
valuable life experiences simultaneously. Travelling helps you mature as a
person. It makes responsible men out of boys and helps you learn about the
world. No wonder travelers always have a trove of great travel stories to tell.
Travelling can be a great fun. Visiting different
well-known destinations and unknown places can be an enriching and educating
experience. Many people have grown up reading and listening to exciting and
adventurous travel stories. A lot has been written about destinations like the
Rohtas Fort, Peer Sohawa, Murree and Lahore City in Pakistan; as well as other
touring spots in Jamaica and Indonesia. However, there is a vast difference
between reading about a place in a travel guide and actually having a
first-hand experience of the place. These destinations offer a unique
experience on their own. Anybody visiting these places has their own travel
story to narrate. Such tales make for good nostalgic readings. It doesn’t just
reflect on the historical background of these places, but also gives me an
insight into the unrecorded history of the place, the people and the era. Many
authors have made careers out of travel writings and have earned a massive fan
following over the years.
Then, there are the new and interesting people you meet
when you visit a tourist destination. These locals always have many different
travel stories to tell. Most people, who are regular travelers …
One thing is certain, most want to reach this path,
even if they don’t have the courage to go down in the middle of the action. If
you are one of the thousands of tourists who are addicted to adrenaline, this
is the perfect place for a week full of action and entertainment. The risk is
quite high, considering that around 200 people are injured each year and 15
have been edited since 1910, when this tradition began. Even so, more and more
people come to see the show every year.
Bull running is the main event of the festival, which
lasts for eight days each. At 8 o’clock in the morning, 6 large bulls were
released on Pamplona days and the participants started running from them. The
final goal is to direct all the bulls in the arena at the end of the course.
Even though this only takes a few minutes, it is very intense. The
participants, mostly dressed in white with red scarves and mostly young men,
tried to avoid bulls when they ran. The committee placed barricades in
secondary streets and made room for people to get out. There are certain rules
that need to be respected so that everyone is safe.
Bull running is not the only strange but exciting
festival event. The day starts with this race, but continues with many
activities that can be just as interesting, even for people who don’t run with
The bulls brought into the arena are used for
bullfighting during the day. This was highly valued by the Spaniards, but was
highly contested by animal rights activists. Another interesting point is the
religious procession that goes on in honor of San Fermin. On every festival day
there are many traditional music concerts and theater representations on the
There is nothing more complex than an around the world
journey, trust me! I set out on a journey to Namibia, Africa. Once in Namibia,
I had to see Victoria Falls. Vic Falls brought me to the border of Zambia and
Zimbabwe. Then I heard about the emerald blue waters in Mozambique. The waters
sparked my curiosity to visit Zanzibar, and Zanzibar’s culture interested me to
visit India and once in India, I was so close to Indochina I just couldn’t
resist. You see, my single trip to Namibia made me an addict who needed more!
What I didn’t tell you is how I got to all these
places or where I stayed. An around-the-world journey is no easy task! To make
a journey like this possible, I first had to have an interest. I then needed to
take a leap-of-faith and just do it! I wanted to do it, and so does a lot of
people, but how many people actually do it? Unfortunately, it’s much easier to
talk about than actually do. Sadly, this goes for other dreams people have.
I took the risk, accepted the danger (I was never
harmed or deathly ill along my 8 month journey to circle the globe), and
learned along the way. I consulted with regional experts, read travel guides,
and listened to the local people.
My journey was different. Other professionals circle
the globe due to their job. The internet cannot book this kind of trip for you!
You need to either do all the extensive research yourself, stealing all of your
valuable time, or hire a travel consultant to do it for you. Bouncing around
the world can be complicated, confusing, and frustrating. A good travel
consultant will calm your nerves and provide you with expert knowledge, tips,
and ensure …
You’ve heard it all before. Things like not being able
to use your cellular phone in the time of flight and the other myth of cruises
being “all inclusive”. These types of myths along with others have
made travelers a little bit more cautious of the things they hear when they are
traveling. Traveling is a fun thing that should not give you stress, but we all
know that once we travel, we need a vacation from a vacation. There are other
myths that you may have heard about or not. Some of these myths are:
1. Hotel Key can steal your identity- This is an
outrageous myth, but it is easy to see where it comes from. Your hotel key,
most people think, has your name, address, and phone number listed on it. The
only thing that the key has on it is the room information. The key number is
registered to you, not your identity. That information is stored in the booking
2. X-Ray Machines will erase your hard drive on your
computer- This myth has scared many people when they travel with a laptop. The
myth only is half true. No the x-ray machines will not erase your hard drive,
but it will erase film from a 35mm camera. That is why they don’t have you scan
the film. Always ask questions if you are unsure of what the procedures are.
You don’t want to be in security check out for hours because you refuse to scan
your computer. That will only cause you more problems to your travel.
3. No need for insurance when you use a credit card to
rent a car- You need to have insurance no matter what. Unless the car rental
has a special in which using your credit card will …
