  • The best carnivals in South America

    For those who keep it, Lent is far from being the most pleasant time of the year – being deprived of your favorite foods or other indulgences is no small sacrifice for many.

    This is why carnival season, right before Lent begins, is a time of revelry and self-indulgence, so that people can have one last blast before staying away from all the fun for a while. At least, this was the original purpose of the carnival, but today it’s a great opportunity to party weather you’re religious or not.

    Some of the biggest and most vibrant carnivals take place in South America, with the Rio as the uncrowned queen of them all. But the Rio carnival is far from being the only one, so if you find yourself somewhere on the continent during the upcoming months, check out some of the best carnivals in South America.

  • 5 Bolivian attractions to see before you die

    Bolivia Sucre

    Bolivia Sucre

    It might sound like a well worn cliche, but Bolivia truly is the land of extremes and contradictions, and this is not just a fanciful metaphor. Bolivia really has some of the highest and lowest points on the planet, the hottest and coldest climates, the driest and swampiest spots and the most abject poverty surrounded by the richest natural beauty.

    Bolivia is also ethnically and culturally diverse, and therefore one of those countries where you can’t just stop at looking at the sights – you actually want to get to know the people, to learn about the history and the culture. But looking at the sights is definitely a huge part of the Bolivian experience, because these tend to be the sort of sights you can’t help but look at. Here are our picks for the 5 Bolivian attractions to see before you die.

    country_tibet_19

    Altitude comes with a lot of drawbacks: you have trouble breathing the thin air, you can get altitude sickness, and the weather is much colder than in the plains. But strangely enough people still live in these rather inhospitable conditions, and more than that, there are flourishing cities at heights where many people haven’t even been yet.

    These cities prove that humans have an astonishing capacity to adapt, and more than that, to  make a decent living among the clouds. So prepare to catch your breath and climb up to the highest cities in the world,because there’s no shortage of reasons why you should visit them.

    Mountain biking is so different from regular biking that you could even say that there is nothing in common between the two except for the fact that both are done using bicycles. But even the bikes used for mountain biking are vastly different from your usual bikes.
