Green Without Envy: The Rainy Season in Phuket - Thailand!

A major tourist destination located in the South of Thailand, the island of Phuket is known for its white sandy beaches, friendly locals and exciting nightlife. Yet during the months of June to October the nightlife comes to a screeching halt. Unfortunately the rainy season in Phuket has not been dubbed “the green season” because of the colour of the money that comes in, but rather from the lush green vegetation that is a result of four months of almost constant rain.

Las Fallas of Valencia, Spain!

Explosions to the left and to the right every 5 seconds, all colours of the rainbow on the dresses of the locals jumping in frenzy to traditional music, millions of people with no sleep for 4 days and giant 15-20 metre caricature effigies grinning at you at every crossroad, many with hard-punching satire and even sexually explicit scenes. This is Disneyland purchased by the Lord of the Underworld, this is Fear and Loathing in Valencia – Las Fallas.

The Guns of Central America - Part 2 of 2!

Still, the guns were obviously not to be carried by the rest of the population. I won’t lie and say that I saw a Glock resting on the passenger seat in a taxi. But people did find ways to create more security even without the firearms. I guess there can never be too much security…

Valencia – The City That Has It All! Part 2 of 2!

Yet, curiously, throughout this process a strong Valencian cultural identity emerged in, once again, the City of Contrasts. The locals see themselves as an ethnic kingdom within Spain. What is spectacular, though, is that here the traditional is still very much in fashion, preserved mainly in music, costumes, customs and fiestas. A good third or so of Valencia proudly sports regional costumes (said to be the most colourful in Spain) and music on even the smallest occasion. That includes a lot of youth. Here, it is still cool to be traditional in the 21st century.

Valencia – The City That Has It All! Part 1 of 2!

Western Europe is such an ultimate travel destination that anything worth seeing has already been triple-packed. It is practically impossible to find a place that has major attractions yet has retained its innocence. And, out of all countries, Spain – the place where annual tourist head count overtakes that of its residents – is a very unlikely candidate for such location.

Learning Spanish in Xela, Guatemala! Part 2 of 2!

Once in Antigua I heard the terrible news: Luke failed to get signed up and was only starting. I did want to go to El Salvador with Luke, though, and I was beginning to think that my Spanish could do with some classes too, so with a heavy heart I decided to stay and look for classes in the morning.

Learning Spanish in Xela, Guatemala! Part 1 of 2!

Learning Spanish in Guatemala is popular and some places are well-known for it. But if you want to remain fairly off-the-trail, Xela is the place to go. A large chunk of Guatemala’s tourism revenue comes from teaching Spanish to travellers. It’s not like it’s the only Spanish-speaking country on the continent, but a number of factors make it a number one choice.

Antigua, Guatemala - Experiencing the town envelops other senses besides sight and sound!

Antigua is the cultural centre in Guatemala. It’s full of beauty and charm! The richness lies in the creativity of its native population, especially when it comes to their skillful weaving of carpets and traditional costumes. We had a memorable experience admiring the town’s colours and architecture, observing massive volcano peaks, attending the largest festival in Central America - Semana Santa, touring around on endless greens stretches, and enjoying Antigua’s brown treasure, the town’s delicate coffee.

Tahiti is a heaven on earth! - Part 2 of 2!

There have been many great discoveries through the last centuries. It’s hard to say which is the greatest, but one thing I am sure of: the discovery of the Tahiti must been like coming to a paradise people didn’t believe would exist in real. Captain Cook and his crew got a pretty warm welcome that melted their hearts.
