    Easter is celebrated by Christians of all kinds, but depending on culture and rite, different Easter traditions and customs. The Balkans have always danced to their own tune, even when it comes to religion.

    Much of the Balkans is Eastern Orthodox, and if you come from a place with a majority of Catholics or Protenstants etc, you might discover that Eastern is a whole different kettle of fish in the Balkans. Although the gist of the holidays is the same as anywhere else, what makes Easter in the Balkans really unique is the way in which it is celebrated.

    In addition to the fact that Orthodox Easter is usually on a different date than the one used by Western Christianity, there are a lot of interesting traditions that make Easter a perfect time to visit the Balkans. So if you’re interested in cultural experiences, how about checking out how people celebrate Easter around the world –  the Balkans and Eastern Europe are a good place to start.

  • Fun Easter destinations: Five Ski Resorts That Rock

    In the last post I was suggesting some less conventional ways to spend Easter, among which I also included toe possibility to go for a short ski vacation. Fortunately, the Rockies are still tucked under a  thick layer of snow, so, no matter whether you prefer the slopes of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado or California, you will be able to ski in the same perfect conditions (and even get some nice tan). An impromptu ski vacation won’t give you too much trouble if you have the necessary equipment and a  spacious four wheel vehicle. In case you need to take the plane, it might get a little pricier (tickets have a tendency to get really expensive near Easter).

    However, in terms of skiing, April is far out of the peak season, so accommodation and equipment rental rates will have significantly reduced. Based on some recent snow reports and also on the amount of fun they are likely to provide, here are the most recommended USA ski resorts for the Easter break:
