For a 12 Day Classic Turkey Tour, I recommend you visit the cities of Istanbul, Bursa, Ephesus, Bodrum, Dalyan, Kas, Konya and of course Cappadocia.
Berlin’s annual beer festival celebrates beer from all over the world. 300 breweries from 86 countries will be offering up their magnificent malts along the spacious boulevard leading up to the iconic and imposing twin towers at Frankfurter Tor.
Rome captures all that is magical in the world. Traveling in Rome is like being in a strange fairy tale – complete with bedbugs. Part of the beauty of the ancient world to me lies in the use of water and fountains. The water gushing from this statue of a lion in Rome touched me in a way I can’t explain but that I think the photo captures. The starkness of the background only serves to enhance that feeling.
Berlin is so much more than just techno and Trabis, bratwurst and bier. Beneath the surface of stereotypes, diverse cultures make up an intoxicating element that rarely makes it into the guide books.
The best thing about Korea is the jinjabongs. I know, best is a word that one shouldn’t really use when writing about world travel since it’s such a subjective word, but here it applies. Korea is filled with wonderful things but the jingabongs are the most wonderful.
The three of us piled into his mini-van and we all headed to the Penis Park on one of the strangest family outings I’ve ever been on. A father, his daughter, her friend, and a strange American man they all just met on the bus and off we went to the Penis Park.
For those who want to keep track, it went something like this so far Manisa, Istanbul, Manisa, Antalya, Izmir, Ephesus, Selcuk, Kusadasi, Izmir, Istanbul, Sofia, Pernik, Belgrade, Nis, Skopje, Sofia, Istanbul, Casablanca, Fes, Sefrou, Fes, Rome, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Sokcho, Samcheok, Andong, Busan, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Batam, Jakarta, Bogor, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul. There were a few other places in between…but …oh well, enjoy because I’m sure there will be more even though right now I don’t feel like going anywhere. :)
Travel around the world and you are sure to want to write about it. One thing you will discover is that finding the time to write about your travels isn’t always easy. Far too often you have to put things off until you have some down time and if you are doing things right, you won’t have much of that!
Travel to the places that don’t make it into most magazines or guidebooks is usually much more interesting and exciting than reading about Bali or Boracay from yet another person who has discovered it. Certainly I didn’t discover Pernik, but it was a pleasure to get to see it in this way.
World travel can bring you face to face with round the world adventures or people from your home town. Pernik, Bulgaria is a place I wouldn’t have experienced without running into someone I already knew.
Travel to Bulgaria like I did and you will find yourself clueless as to what an amazing and historical place the capital city of Sofia is. Upon arrival, my new friend Tim sat me down in front of the computer and told me “Watch this, it will save us a lot of time and make your stay here more enjoyable. Later we’ll meet the guy that made it. “
