    The list of adrenaline-raising, potentially life threatening and utterly crazy extreme sports seems to be getting longer every year, but a would-be adventurer can always return to old classics that were popular before everything else requiring hi-tech equipment. Jumping off a cliff is one of the simplest things a traveler can do, and not even because the hotel had bad service or food, but rather for the sheer fun of it. Cliff diving is one of the most dangerous sports in the world, but it has been practiced by people for centuries, and it even has a world federation today. But as much fun as cliff diving can be, it is always better when you find a stunning location for your death defying act. Here are some of the most beautiful cliff diving spots in the world.

  • Visiting the oldest cities in the world

    It might seem almost strange that the neon colored jungles that are modern big cities could be anything but brand new, and living completely in the present.

    But most cities don’t need to look old in order to be old, and while you might be walking down a newly paved alley fringed with modern cafes and restaurants, it’s possible that others have walked on the same streets a few millennia ago.

  • The best boat trips in the world

    Plane travel has all but replaced other ways of getting around the world, like trains or boats – why spend days or weeks to cross the ocean when you can do it in less than a day? While flying sure is practical, in some parts of the world boats are the most convenient (and sometimes the only) way to get around a destination. The view from the water is often better than the view from the shore, so if you find yourself in a particularly nice place near water, taking a short boat trip can never hurt! Here are some of the best trips in the world, some shorter and some longer, but all of them with some great scenery to offer.

    Depending on how the world economy turns out, currency rates change and political troubles brew, the budget-conscious traveler’s to-see list can change every year.

Whatever the reason, every year there are a few favorites when it comes to budget travel, and even if you hadn’t considered visiting them anytime soon, there is no better time for it than now. So if you want to make sure that you save as much money as possible while still getting to see some amazing places, take a look at some of the best budget travel destinations for 2012.

    Agro-tourism, also called agritourism, is one of the newest trends in the world of travel. Green travel allows you to help preserve the environment as much as possible without giving up on actually traveling, but agro-tourism does more than that: it involves in you activities that make tourism more sustainable. Agro-tourism, to put it simply, implies spending time on a farm, working or just enjoying country life, picking fruit or feeding animals, and even doing harder jobs that allow you to pay for your holiday. In all cases, agro-tourism is an active sort of tourism that lands you with some useful experience, and often makes it possible for you to travel practically for free. Here’s one of the best way to indulge in responsible travel: a guide to agro-tourism.

  • The best castle towns in the world

    In ages past, when castles were being built by the hundreds, little towns would often spring up around them, leaching off the wealth and protection of the castle’s lords and ladies. And while castle towns are a fixture in most European countrie, they are not limited to the Old World. Pretty towns with large castles looming over them can be found all over the world, and if the castle is interesting, then the community built around it is no less intriguing. If you feel like taking a step back in time to the glorious days of Medieval Europe or Asia, and even North America (without getting acquainted with any of the horrors of the Middle Ages), then take a trip to some of the best castle towns in the world.
