  • Four Bucharest attractions you shouldn’t miss

    As most people that have been there or even travel guides would tell you, Bucharest is a city of contrasts. What was once the ‘Little Paris of the East’ has suffered not only from the demolitions initiated by the communists in the ‘80s, but also from the abusive residential projects that sprung at the city outskirts in the late ‘90s. But as any country capital, Bucharest is a place of renewal and innovation. Here you will find the most refined restaurants, the hottest clubs in Romania and a fascinating underground culture.

     
  • Romantic Hawaii

    Hawaii has been praised by the American pop-culture as the ideal honey-moon destination and one of the most romantic places on earth. America’s wealthiest business people, singers and actors – they all have their little piece of heaven on one on Hawaii’s islands.  We all remember pictures from Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s dreamy wedding ceremony, set against a Hawaiian sunset, or the numerous tabloid articles that have followed Bill Gates’ million dollar Hawaiian wedding. But the high density of celebs per square mile in Hawaii doesn’t mean that us, common people, are forbidden to step on this blessed land. By contrary: there are thousands of happy couples that spend their honey moon here or fly to Hawaii just to get married. This is why we thought that presenting Hawaii as one of the most popular wedding locations in the world might prove to be useful for some of our readers.

     
  • Anchorage, a Gateway to Alaska’s Wilderness

    Anchored in the wild landscape of the Alaskan coastline, Anchorage is one of the few entrance gates towards this vast, distant territory. Exploring Alaska’s woods and magnificent mountains is a challenge that every outdoor passionate must accept at least one during his/her lifetime. And Anchorage, this young city in the southern part of the Alaska Peninsula (you might find it be hard to believe, but Anchorage was only incorporated in 1920) is the ideal place to start.

  • Glasgow – of old and new

    Once the centre of the Scottish Enlightenment, Glasgow has now become one of United Kingdom’s most populous, economically developed and culturally prolific cities. Although, from a touristic perspective, Glasgow has a strong competitor in the picturesque city of Edinburgh (Scotland’s second largest city), there are certain aspects of Glasgow that make it unbeatable. The most fascinating thing about Glasgow it the harmonious way in which the old and new coexist. While Glasgow’s art museums and galleries are hosting some of the most valuable creations produced within the last centuries, Glasgow underground music scene continues to impose trends. The same fascinating contrast can be seen in Glasgow’s architecture: its Victorian old quarter and Art Nouveau iconic buildings are perfectly integrated between the post-modernist structures. No matter what are your tastes in terms of music or artistic movements, when visiting Glasgow it’s imperative to give the same amount of attention to both old and new Glasgow.

    Dublin is a city with so many faces: from its picturesque architecture to its famous nightlife, Dublin never ceases to amaze tourists. The Irish pubs have reached an incredible degree of popularity, which makes Dublin’s pubs and the tasty Guinness beer one of Ireland’s major attractions.

  • Explore Mexico’s National Parks

    The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the name Mexico is that Mexico represents the ultimate escape. You too must have noticed how all the outlaws, college kids or couples from Hollywood movies always see seek their refugee in Mexico.  As any stereotype, this one too has its nucleus of truth: with its all night parties, hospitable people and extremely beautiful nature, Mexico is an ideal travel destination. People head for Mexico with the hope of attending a piñata, tasting some authentic tacos and relaxing on the white sanded beaches of Cancun or Cozumel. Also, those interested in Mexico’s traditions, folk music or the relics of the fascinating Maya civilizations will have plenty to discover around Mexico (for details on Mexico’s resorts, major cities or history you might want to check this Mexico Travel Guide).
