    If you love water, then as soon as the weather gets warm you will probably want to take a trip to the seaside and indulge in the joys of beach life: swimming, lounging in the sun, or doing some water sports. But beaches are notorious for attracting huge crowds, and let’s not forget about jellyfish, riptides, sunburn and other downsides. But if you’re not ready to give up on your plans of splashing around in the sun, why not choose a lakeside town instead as your spring/summer destination? Wherever there’s a particularly pretty lake, there will be a lakeside town as well, where you can find guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, etc. Spend your days swimming, sailing, hiking and doing other outdoor activities in some of the most picturesque lakeside towns in the world.

    If you’re a Christian, then Easter is one of the most important holidays of the year, and a perfect opportunity to spend time with friends and family either at home, or even better in a faraway place that promises fun and adventure. And even if you’re not a religious sort, Easter is a great time to get away from home and from work and get up to some traveling, since April is as good a time as ever to be on the road. But if you are planning on traveling with kids, then Easter gets a whole new meaning: Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs and sometimes even presents! Go traveling with your family on Easter, and take your kids to some of the best Easter egg hunts in the world, they’ll have the time of their lives!

  • Top 5 places for gourmet weekends

    Traveling is all about seeing new places, discovering and experiencing, but this entire adventure is not limited to what you see. Eating local foods and delicacies and offering your taste-buds some new tastes is just as big a part of the entire travel business.

    Some people travel expressly with the purpose of eating the local treats, and in between two restaurants they can fit in a nice bit of sightseeing too. So if you want to go on an eating rampage, there are some cities better suited for this plan than others. Here’s a list of the top 5 places for gourmet weekends.

  • Amazing places: Snowdonia, Wales


    I remembered when I first heard about Snowdonia, and I was convinced that it was some kind of imaginary country in a story, or something similar. It sounded like some kind of country of eternal snow, with icy mountains, valleys, lakes and forests. Well, as it turned out, I was not that far from the truth. Snowdonia is a magical place indeed, although not as ice-covered as I thought when I was a kid. Visiting it is rather surreal though, like seeing a place that doesn’t really fit into the reality you’re used to.

    A truly unique place, Snowdonia National Park is a great destination for those who like hiking and trekking in unusual (or unusually beautiful) places, and if you ask me, if the Lord of the Rings hadn’t been filmed in New Zealand, Snowdonia would have been an equally inspired choice.
