A bus ride to the Albufera Nature Reserve, located just one hour outside of Valencia, is probably the cheapest and easiest day trip you can take. And you should – since the region is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Come on, follow my guide through the National Park of Plitvice and awe at lakes and pools in dreamlike colors.
I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places in my time – oceans, mountains, jungles, and also lakes. However, the Plitvice National Park is one of the most beautiful sceneries I’ve ever laid eyes on.This Way to the Whole Story ->
A guide to Krka National Park, a green paradise nestled between the hills and mountains of Central Dalmatia. However, even the way can be the goal, since it’s within walking distance from the small coastal town of Skradin.
And what a scenic walk that is!
Although this national park is not that large, it still is impressively rich in various types of habitats with many endemic species.
This is a guide to Puno, a town on the shores of lake Titicaca from where you can visit the self-made Uros islands and the mesmerizing Isla Taquile where the men are knitting hats’n’gloves with the most varied patterns.
However, you might want to prepare yourself for some annoying altitude sickness since Puno is more than 3,800 meters above sea level – so don’t hold your breath.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Pucallpa is the gateway to Perú’s Amazon region and has the charm of a B-movie.
It’s the jungle. Therefore, you can watch birds and sloths and fish for piranhas in the river Ucayali as well as the Yarinacocha lagoon.
So I had seen Lima and Paracas on the costa, Perú’s pacific coast. I also visited Arequipa, Cusco, and Machu Picchu in the sierra of the Andean region. Hence, all that was missing was a little selva, the jungle.
That would make the Peruvian trilogy complete.This Way to the Whole Story ->
So here comes my guide to the Mountainous Highlights of Peru – and this pun is totally intended!
While Peru does invite its visitors to experience the sierra, selva, and costa – hence, the mountains, the jungle, and the coast – the first-mentioned is definitely the most unique and alluring of those regions.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Argentina is Latin America’s second-largest country and shares with Chile one of the world’s longest international borders – and at Los Antiguos, you can cross this borderline walking. From North to South, those two countries snuggle on about 5,300 kilometers!
Unless you are flying, these dimensions can make travelling a bit challenging. Routes can be very long, trips of about 15 hours are not unusual.
An invitation to include some stops – for instance in the border town of Los Antiguos.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Dramatically jagged mountains, covered by a picturesque layer of eternal snow overtowering fir-covered hills – Bariloche is a Swiss Vacation, however, on the Opposite Side of the Globe.
Trouts jumping in ice-cold turquoise waters of glacier lakes, rivers, and creeks.
Still not Swiss enough?
Well, the town of San Carlos de Bariloche cranks it up a notch by manufacturing some of the world’s best artisan chocolate and making you pose with a Saint Bernard dog – including the small barrel of rum around the neck; his neck, not yours.
I love Italy: The gelato, the papagalli, the dolce far niente. Somehow my head got tangled in these clichés like a fork in a heap of spaghetti.
Funny thing is: On my frequent trips to Bella Italia, I actually find these clichés reflected in the reality around me.This Way to the Whole Story ->
