This Popular Solo Female Travel Vlogger Thinks Pakistan Could Be The World’s No. 1 Tourism Destination
Pakistan. It’s not exactly on every solo female traveler’s bucket list. But that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be. Especially if you ask vlogger and content creator Eva zu Beck, who thinks Pakistan could be the world’s #1 tourism destination.
Hiking Armenia’s New Transcaucasian Trail is a Beautiful Way to Immerse Yourself in Armenian Culture
It’s not every day that Time names a hiking trail to their annual World’s 100 Greatest Places list. In fact, this is a first. And this is just the beginning of the attention and recognition that the new Transcaucasian Trail, a more than 1,800-mile trail that connects some of the most beautiful and remote regions of Armenia and Georgia (and eventually Azerbaijan) to one another, has started to receive.
Style. Not everyone has it. But the designer duo Michel&Amazonka, the hottest – and most progressive – design team in Mongolia at the moment, they do.
Maldives. Bora Bora. Seychelles. Bali. Santorini. These are some of the most beautiful islands in the world. But everyone knows that. And there’s no denying there is something about each of them that’s deserving of all the attention they receive.
Mongolia’s last reindeer riders don’t rely on their herd just for transportation.
It’s a sunny summer morning on the Mongolian taiga—a remote, high-altitude area bordering Siberia—but I’m wearing a winter coat. My host Otgontsetseg, though, doesn’t seem to mind the almost-freezing temperature. She’s wearing a winter deel, a traditional Mongolian garment that’s worn here year-round, and rises at 5:30 a.m. to do this every morning.
Bob Long has never been to Mongolia. But as soon as he heard about the Mongol Derby, he knew he had to travel to the country of the Great Khan and see what this race, and culture, was all about.
Because the Mongol Derby is hailed as the world’s longest and toughest horse race. It’s even recognized as that with its very own Guinness World Record. There’s absolutely nothing easy about this 1,000-kilometer (621-mile) race across Mongolia.
Riders – most of whom have only just arrived in Mongolia ...
Life on the taiga isn’t easy. There’s a constant threat of wolves. The temperatures (and weather in general) are unpredictable. And good luck with cell phone service – you’re much too far north, and remote, for that.
The ‘stans. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. They’re not on everyone’s radar. Hell, mention that you’re “going to the ‘stans” and the look of confusion on someone’s face is priceless. They’re located in Central Asia. Which isn’t always an easy place to get to.
It’s not everyday that you find yourself lost, missing your next trailhead, in the rolling mountains of southern Spain with no roads, people or villages in sight. But it certainly makes for a day that you won’t ever forget, I can tell you that. And that’s coming from someone who travels a lot. Like 335 days a year a lot.
I’ve just arrived in Finnish Lapland and the weather is a brutal -20 degrees Celsius (which I’d later learn is a “good day” out here). But that’s not about to stop me – or anyone else for that matter – from spending my days exploring the incredible forests and fells that make up the beautiful landscape out here, and the reason why locals out here refer to the forest as “the church.” Because it’s true – being out here is every bit the religious experience as promised.
This isn’t my first love letter to Georgia. Last year I called Tbilisi one of the most exciting cities in the world. And, after weeks of protests in the city center, Georgians have banned together not just IRL (in real life) but online as well, which is how the Facebook group Spend your Summer in Georgia became the region’s best travel campaign of the summer.
Hailed the “Middle East’s prime beach resort of independent travelers” by Lonely Planet, Dahab was once the center of a 1960’s Israeli occupation. For decades, everyone from backpackers to thrill-seeking tourists have turned to Dahab for adventure.
It wasn’t long ago that I got the idea that I wanted to start traveling by way of motorcycle. There was just something that seemed so cool, so free about it. Because when you’re on two wheels, just you and the open road (or steppe, in my case), you feel on top of the world. (Well, until you flip your bike, break your collarbone and give yourself a mild concussion – but that’s a small price to pay when you’re out on an adventure.)
Intrepid Travel has officially announced their second Uncharted Expedition, a “one off adventure,” which will begin in Tehran, Iran and end in Istanbul, Turkey. “You won’t know where you’re going, what you’ll see, where you’ll stay, or what you’ll be eating,” teases Intrepid Travel co-founder Darrell Wade.
Climbing aboard Barba, a beautiful Jeanneau Sun Fast 37 sailing yacht that has sailed extensively around the North Atlantic Ocean, I know that I’m not on your typical sail boat. Or even a typical research expedition vessel.
