http%3A%2F%2Fwww.venturists.net%252Ffeed%252F

Our one regret in taking this food tour of Split, Croatia is that it wasn’t the first thing that we did when we arrived. Instead, we spent our time in Split clueless about the craft beer, hadn’t known about the walnut infused grappa and had no idea that we walked by the best bakery in the area over […]

Is Tourism Doing Enough to Help Fight Poverty?

by Malte Blas @ Buffalo Tours Travel Blog

While environmental protection and cultural preservation are always high on the responsible travel agenda, there seems to be a lack of focus on what really makes sustainable tourism work: the well-being of people!

Slices of Life in Vietnam

We absolutely loved Vietnam, where we spent six weeks, visiting my brother in Ho Chi Minh and exploring other cities. I have gathered here some of our best pictures from our stay in this beautiful country and which depict slices of life, in other words, moments of the ordinary life through scenes in the streets of Vietnam. These pictures bring great memories to us and represent some of the aspects of life there.

One Week Itinerary For Romania

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

This is going to sound terrible, but before I had really started to research visiting Romania, I imagined it being this post-Communist bleak, run-down place with a cool Dracula castle and mysterious creepy mountains. Please don’t judge me for being clueless. Also, don’t judge me but I have a significant Dracula fascination. I read that book “The Historian” a few years ago and decided then that I had to visit Romania. It became clear once I did a little research that my original clueless thoughts did not accurately reflect what this beautiful country has to offer. It also was clear that one week was not going to be enough to see all these amazing places Romania has to offer but I did the best I could and came up with this one week itinerary for Romania The Basics Language Romanian.  Decent English is spoken in larger cities and villages Hello:  Buna Thank you:  mulțumesc   It took me days to pronounce this properly “Mool-tszi-mesk” Currency Romanian Lei (RON).    1 Lei = 0.25 USD How to Get There International airports in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest and the country has a decent train system. I flew into Cluj via Wow Air (a discount airline based in Hungary) and out of Bucharest. Many travelers take the Budapest to Bucharest train which is quite a journey, an overnight trip from 7pm to 12pm the next day. I would spring for the sleeping compartment on this one! If you happen to be coming from Serbia, the city of Timisoara is very close the northern border. Not sure that there is a train but it is certainly drivable from Belgrade. There is also a night train between Sofia, Bulgaria and Bucharest that takes about 9 hours. How to Get Around I found the train very easy and convenient with many larger stations having luggage storage. I utilized Uber in Brasov and Bucharest. Many people opt to self-drive which is nice for freedom but traffic can really make for some slow going at certain times. One Week Itinerary for Romania Like all itineraries, this is just a suggestion to give you an idea of what you can do in a week’s time. I will often include places to eat (because that’s important to me) and if you trust my judgment…great. Since I certainly do not know enough to write extensive city guides, I only share a few places that impressed me. This route could be done in either direction depending on where you find the best transportation in and out.  This is the order in which I did the trip. Cluj-Napoca After flying into Cluj, as it’s fondly known I slept. I had an exhausting week in Malta prior to this leg of my big European trip and because of that, I missed out on much that Cluj has to offer. I did get a small taste of this 2nd largest city in Romania and capital of Transylvania. Cluj has the countries largest university, Babeș-Bolyai University, which has a famous botanical garden. The town is full of students and artists has many cute cafes and bars and a cool bohemian vibe. Things to Do DIY Walking Tour with tips from Awesome Things to do in Cluj-Napoca Start in Museum Square and walk towards Union Square where you can find the impressive St. Michael’s Church and the statue of Matthias Corvinus. After this stroll towards the National Theatre and then make your way to the Tailor’s Bastion. Follow Avram Iancu Street, pass by the Town Hall, and make your way to Central Park. If you still have energy, trek up to Fortress Hill for some great views. Many people suggested I visit the nearby Turda Salt Mines, but I didn’t have time. They do look really cool! Where to Eat Cafe Rhedey This is right in Museum Square and is a cozy place for lunch and coffee. They also have great wifi. Did I mention that Romania has some of the best wifi in Europe! Seriously impressed. This cafe’s cuisine is a cool blend of Hungarian, Romania, Armenian, Jewish and Saxon. I had the Ciorba which is a Hungarian specialty. It is basically sour soup. I spent about 37 lei ($9) for soup, bread, coffee and some cool juice blend. Casa Tiff The service here left much to be desired and I could do without all the smoking (this is a common theme and complaint mine regarding eastern Europe) but the menu was really humorous and creative with a movie theme and the food was good. The large terrace is great during summer months and the place has a hipster vibe. Sighisoara Sighisoara is a delightful pastel-colored dream village in the heart of Transylvania. I opted to break up my train trip from Cluj to Brasov with a stop here. The entire train trip from Cluj to Brasov takes 7 hours. It is 5 hours to Sighisoara. The train station here has luggage storage and is only 4 Lei ($1)  for 3 hours of storage. How nice is that? I found 3 hours the perfect time to explore the village. Just make sure to check the train times so you know when to come back. Sighisoara is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to being such a well-preserved walled city. During the12th-century German merchants and craftsman were invited to Transylvania by the King of Hungary. He wanted these Transylvanian Saxons, as they were known, to settle and fortify the outskirts of the realm. You’ll notice that all the Saxon villages in Romania have a distinct look and are all really charming. Sighisoara is easily explored on foot with only 3 main streets really. The town is unbelievably colorful and for great views make sure to climb the clock tower.  You should also take the cool covered staircase up to the gothic church on the hill. Sighisoara’s other “claim to fame” is that Vlad Tepes’ father, Vlad Dracul, was exiled here when Vlad Tepes was born (see my section on Bran Castle for more explanation about Vlad Tepes). Where to Eat Casa Georgius Krauss A historic old house (also a hotel) makes a nice lunch stop. I highly recommend the crispy eggplant salad. Sorry, that’s all I got. I was only here 3 hours! There is a kitschy Dracula Cafe… Brasov This central Transylvanian town is the perfect base to explore the region. It is on its own a wonderful place to visit with hiking in the hills and a beautiful old city. Give yourself at least a full day just to see Brasov. If you are the kind of person who doesn’t like moving around as much you can do day trips from here to the next few places on the list. For example, there are tours that can take you to both Bran Castle and Peles Castle in one day. Piata Sfatului Hard to imagine that this idyllic square has a dark past with public trials and executions during the middle ages. The Black Church It’s the largest Gothic church in Eastern Europe. It’s obviously not black, but after a fire in the 1600’s the walls were discolored from soot. Tampa Mountain Hike or take the cable car up to Brasov’s “Hollywood sign” Free Walking Tour I do the free walking tour in every city that offers it. Who doesn’t love free stuff and I think walking tours are the best way to introduce yourself to a new city. Where to Eat La Ceaun There are 2 locations with the smaller one on a side street and the other close to the main square. The food is traditional Romanian and is amazing. I adored the mushroom pie with garlic sour cream. Did I mention that Romanian cuisine is mushroom and sour cream heave, two of my favorite things. This with   2 glasses of red wine was 50 lei (13$) and with very good service.  The main square location’s service was not as good. In both locations, the soup of day and stew of day were gone by dinner time (and they looked good) so go for lunch! This restaurant is very popular so be prepared to wait if you are there at peak times and in the summer. Donuterie These donuts are not only instagram worthy, but delicious. I didn’t know this until later but there is a location in Cluj as well. Located on Strada Republicii  near the main square. Where to Stay Kismet Dao Hostel This place…ok so the showers are in the basement but at least they have separate female and male bathrooms with several shower stalls each. The breakfast is free and they offer you a free drink daily. This can be water, juice, beer…whatever. They also have a hostel dog that is adorable and they offer great small group tours every day. Just a ten minute walk into the city center. Bran Castle This is “Dracula’s Castle”…oooh (queue ghost noises). Don’t worry…this is the least scary place on earth unless like me you are terrified of overly crowded touristy places. Bran actually means “Gate” so this is the Gate of Transylvania.I was floored by the number of tourists here in early August but then I was told this is Romania’s most visited place. I’m sure in non-summer times it is less crowded (except Halloween…that’s totally a THING).  We waited about 35 minutes in line just to arrive at the ticket booth and another 15 minutes or so to enter. I went through at a moderate pace. Entire experience including waiting in line took me 1.5 hours. Not too bad for a day’s work. Note that trips to Bran castle are typically combined with other regional activities. You definitely don’t want to spend a whole day chasing Dracula! Is It Really Dracula’s Castle? Well… Bran Stoker, the Irish writer who wrote the 1857 book “Dracula” never actually visited Romania. Dracula is often confused with Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), sometimes known as Vlad Dracula, who was a Wallachian Prince with a castle (now in ruins) located in the Principality of Wallachia. Bran Castle happens to be the only castle in all of Transylvania that actually fits Bram Stoker’s description of Dracula’s Castle, so now it is known throughout the world as Dracula’s Castle.  In his book, the Count’s castle is described as “. . . on the very edge of a terrific precipice . . . with occasionally a deep rift where there is a chasm [with] silver threads where the rivers wind in deep gorges through the forests.” Bran Stoker depicted the imaginary Dracula’s castle based upon a description of Bran Castle that was available to him in turn-of-the-century Britain. Dracula history The name “Dracula”, derives from the Crusader Order of the Dragon and Order of which both Vlad Tepes and his father had been associated. Vlad Tepes was the ruler of Wallachia from 1456-1462 and 1476. He was depicted by some historians of that time as a blood-thirsty ruthless despot who did horrible and malicious things (such as impaling) to his peasants. It isn’t clear if these are stories created for political reasons or facts. In the villages near Bran, there is a belief in the existence of evil spirits called ghosts or “strigoi” It was believed that these living people, “strigoi”, lead a normal life during the day but at night their souls left their bodies and haunted the village tormenting people in their sleep. One can see how these local beliefs combined with the storied about Vlad Tepes led to this fantastical story of Dracula. I was especially amused by the poor dude dressed as Dracula roaming around. Not sure if he’s the “official” sanctioned Dracula or just a random local man trying to make a buck. I felt bad for him in the summer heat since his white makeup didn’t want to stay put. His face was too kind to be Dracula and he looked really sad. I tried to chat with him a bit.  I was amused (as were the parents) when a terrified small child refused to go near him. What to Eat Near Bran Castle I highly recommend eating one of the local pancake treats found in the food stalls across the street from the Castle area. This is a central European treat that has made its way to Romania at some point. In Hungarian it is known as palacsinta and in Romanian, clătite but here in Bran I saw the former used. I can’t pronounce either of them so…   You can get these crepe like things with a several fillings bt the one with the cheese seems to be the most popular. It is a great snack to have to make that Bran castle line more palatable. Or palacsint-able.  Hee hee. If you want a fancy culinary experience worthy of Queen Marie, check out the Tea House. Recently restored and ready for some royal visitors. Bran Castle Tea House Peles Castle Peleș Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia.  Its inauguration was held in 1883. It was the summer home of King Carol the I who brought independence to Romania. The cost of the work on the castle was undertaken between 1875 and 1914 was estimated to be 16,000,000 Romanian lei in gold (approx. US$ 120 million today). Wowzers! Apparently, 300-400 men were involved in the construction. I have to share this quote by Queen Elisabeth of the Romanians: “Italians were masons, Romanians were building terraces, the Gypsies were coolies. Albanians and Greeks worked in stone, Germans and Hungarians were carpenters. Turks were burning brick. Engineers were Polish and the stone carvers were Czech. The Frenchmen were drawing, the Englishmen were measuring, and so was then when you could see hundreds of national costumes and fourteen languages in which they spoke, sang, cursed and quarreled in all dialects and tones, a joyful mix of men, horses, cart oxen and domestic buffaloes.”   The complex is northwest of the town of Sinaia which is 48 km (30 mi) from Braşov and 124 km (77 mi) from Bucharest.  By train from Brasov to Sinaia is only 1 hour. Driving actually may take longer because there always seems to be traffic! * Be aware that on Mondays it is closed and you can only visit the grounds but can’t go inside. This castle is one of the most beautiful in Europe. I think if you only have time for one castle, this one should take priority over Bran Castle unless you are just obsessed with it’s tenuous connection to Dracula! Sibiu Sibiu is one of the most important cultural centers of Romania and a former center of the Transylvanian Saxons which I mentioned above. It did not become part of Romania until after World War I. Prior to this is was ethnically German and part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The current president of Romania happens to be descended from these Germans. Sibiu is a lovely charming medieval town with a city center full of open squares, walled defenses, and centuries-old buildings and towers. There is a lower and upper town separated by a staircase. In the past, the wealthier Saxons lived in the upper town’s city center, while the peasants were in the lower town. What to Do I would start in the main square, Piata Mare for your self-walking tour of Sibiu. Notice the buildings unique roofs with the windows that look like eyes. I absolutely loved this strange architectural feature. It is so whimsically creepy.  Apparently, these are for ventilation in the attic. Take in all the pastel ornate buildings and the “eyes” on the main street, the Strada Nicolae Balcescu. The Bridge of Lies near the Piata Mica (Small Square) is Romania’s oldest cast-iron bridge dating back to 1859. There are several legends. Most of them involve the bridge “knowing” when someone lies and it will creak and move and make strange noises. Couple would come here before marriage to “test” the woman’s claims of virginity. If caught lying the poor girl may get thrown off the bridge. Many couples tested their partner’s claims of love here. Other legends say that when local merchants were caught cheating their customers, they were thrown off of this bridge. For great views of the town climb the Council Tower or the Gothic Lutheran Cathedral. The Catholic Basilica here is very plain on the outside but stunning inside with pink marble columns. Even more ornate and completely different is the impressive Orthodox Cathedral. If you are into museums and want to learn more about Romanian Art, check out the Brukenthal National Museum which is inside the palace the former Transylvanian Governor, Samuel von Brukenthal. Getting To Sibiu It has its own airport and it is located at 279 kilometers (3h and 38 min by car) from Bucharest. By train from Brasov is 2.5 hours and costs between $5-$9 USD. By car from Brasov is about 2 hours and 15 minutes, again, very dependent on traffic. What to Eat There are bakeries everywhere and you’ll see the covrigi, sort of a Romanian pretzel, everywhere. I like the ones with sesame seeds but they come in many varieties. All the various bakery items looked amazing. I also enjoyed the roasted corn found from many different street vendors. Sit in one of the many cute cafes that line the various squares. I came here on a day trip from Brasov and it was raining so I didn’t explore or sit and chill at cafes as much as usual. Bucharest Bucharest really took me by surprise especially when many people told me not to spend much time there. I only scheduled one night here and I really regretted that. After this experience in multiple places, I don’t know why I still listen to people! But listen to me folks. Bucharest is a regal and beautiful city with streets and streets of buzzing cafes, pumping bars, beautiful architecture and interesting monuments. all with the communist ghosts lurking under the surface. I’ve heard it called the New Berlin or the New Budapest. Whatever it is…it’s awesome. Uncrowded, underappreciated and unflinchingly real. Things to Do Centru Vechi (Old Center) This is the youngest old city in the world. Say what?? Redesigned just a few years ago to energize locals and attract tourists, it is a happening place with a great cafe and party scene. Palace of the Parliament This beast of a building is definitely a testament to communist architecture. It’s massive at 365,000 square meters with 1,000 + rooms, it’s the second largest administrative building in the world. Check the website for tour information. Vilacrosse Passage (Pasajul Macca-Vilacrosse) This yellow glass covered araced street hosts several indoor/outdoor eating establishments including an Egyptian-themed bar/restaurant, the Blues Cafe, a bistro, a Chinese restaurant and a wine bar. Cărturești Carusel Meaning “Carousel of Light”. This may be the most beautiful bookstore in the world.  Recently opened, it is in a restored 19th-century building and features over 10,000 books, 5,000 albums and DVDs as well as a bistro on the top floor. Romanian Athenaeum (main concert hall) Where to Eat Caru’ cu Bere I always defer to the Culture Trip for good eats in various cities around the world. They have never led me wrong. A Romanian American friend recommended this place that happens to be on the Culture Trip’s list so of course, I had to go. Dating back to 1879, it is very popular with a stunning interior full of dark wood, vaulted ceilings and gilt elements reminiscent of the golden age of Bucharest. The restaurant also holds one of the oldest breweries in Bucharest. The name of the restaurant means “Beer Wagon”. Pizza Colosseum This is the place where those famous umbrellas are. If you want a photo without pizza eating tourists in it, go early! I feel like that’s my mantra:  Go Early. Go Early!  The pizza happens to be very good here and I am self-proclaimed pizza snob connoisseur. Pura Vida Sky Bar This rooftop bar is the perfect place to chill with a cocktail watching the copper-colored roofs at sunset with some cool tunes. I especially enjoyed the long walk up the stairs to get here. It’s not often that the stairs give messages of encouragement. This also happens to be a hostel, FYI. Where to Stay Europa Royale Bucharest Hotel This grand hotel is budget friendly (for such a nice hotel) and is a perfect location at the edge of the Old Town. The staff here were super friendly and it has a gorgeous cafe. You step out the door and onto the buzzy cafe-lined streets of Bucharest. Little Bucharest Old Town Hostel This is more of a social gathering spot than a hostel and being the only hostel in the pedestrian old town has its perks. The hostel has beautiful city views as well. Find a Hotel or Hostel: Booking.com Again, I did all of this in one day! If you have more time and would like to know more things to do, read Highlights of Bucharest. I hope I’ve piqued your interest to visit Romania. As most countries in Eastern Europe, it is a refreshing change of pace from Western Europe and much less crowded. I also find the prices of things in this region easier on the wallet! Romania stole my heart and I feel like there is much more to discover there. I will definitely go back! Have you been to Romania?

25 Pictures That Explain Why the Balkans Are Awesome

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

The Balkans are one of my favorite regions in the world. There are so many underrated places here. This isn’t just a few hidden gems…it’s the whole mine!  The entire region is full of stunning nature, incredible food, and warm people.  The culture and the history here is insane. This is where centuries of epic struggles went down between two huge empires, the Ottoman and the Austro-Hungarian.  Furthermore, some of these places are miraculously not crawling with tourists. Sorry Balkans, I’m spilling your secrets like a gossipy pre-teen and showing the world why the Balkans are awesome. 1.  Mostar, Bosnia No this isn’t a dream. It’s real. This charming town has a long history, much of it pretty horrific from the war in the 1990’s but tourism is picking up and many are realizing all that Bosnia has to offer.  This 16th century Ottoman bridge was rebuilt in 2004 after being bombed in 1993. I feel that it is a symbol of Mostar and Bosnia rebuilding and moving forward. Read More:  Bosnia, Europe’s Best Kept Secret 2.  Blagaj, Bosnia Herzegovina This 600-year-old Dervish monastery is in a beautiful idyllic setting on the Buna river. 3. Kravice Waterfall, Bosnia Herzegovina The Herzegovina region of Bosnia is worth a trip. Not only will you see Blagaj (above) and Počitelj (the cover photo) but you can see this pristine waterfall. Note the lack of humans blocking the view. 4. Sarajevo, Bosnia I think Sarajevo is a contender for the most interesting city in the world. Some call it the Jerusalem of Europe, with a mosque, synagogue, Catholic cathedral and an Orthodox church all within steps of each other. Don’t even get me started on the crazy history here. World War I history buffs out there? Read More:  Sarajevo, the Most Interesting City in Europe 5.  Rila Monastery, Bulgaria A beautiful peaceful monastery deep in the mountains? Um yes…sign me up! A mere 2 hours away from Sofia is this gorgeous place where you can chill in the mountain air listening to monks chant. I highly recommend eating the fresh fried dough at the kiosk nearby. Read More:  One Week Road Trip in Bulgaria 6.  Plovdiv, Bulgaria Bulgaria’s 2nd largest city Plovdiv, doesn’t have a big city feel. It has a wonderful mix of modern and traditional with an ancient section with traditional homes and this fun artsy section called Kapana. 7.  Peles Castle, Romania Not too shabby for a summer palace eh? King Carol had pretty good taste. Deep in the Carpathian mountains, you can visit this late 1800’s Neo-Renaissance style castle. 8.  Sighisoara, Romania Who would believe that this adorable colorful Saxon village in Transylvania holds Dracula’s roots. Apparently Vlad the Impaler’s father was born here. 9.  Brasov, Romania This centrally located Transylvanian city is the perfect base to explore all of Dracula’s old hood including Bran Castle and the many fortresses and medieval villages in the region. 10.  Dubrovnik, Croatia Hardly a secret, Dubrovnik has become one of the most visited places in Europe and is usually the first Balkans country that tourists will visit. Best to visit in the offseason unless you like sharing with a few thousand cruise ship passengers. Despite its high school cheerleader level of popularity, I still adore this city with its medieval walls and glittering waters. Read More:  Ultimate Guide to Dubrovnik 11.  Rovinj, Croatia We can’t let the Dalmatian Coast have all the attention. The Istria region of Croatia is equally beautiful with its own culture and vibe. Rovinj has more of a laid-back resort feel compared to Dubrovnik but with the same Croatian charm. 12.  Kotor Bay, Montenegro Just a short drive south from Dubrovnik is this stunning bay, often called Europe’s southernmost fjord. 13.  Kotor, Montenegro Climbing the 9th-century city walls around Kotor gives you incredible views of the town and the bay. Montenegro is a nature lover’s dreams with both mountains and beaches. 14.  Belgrade, Serbia Belgrade, the ex Yugoslavian capital and current Serbian capital is a vibrant exciting city with the dubious honor of being one of the best party cities in Europe, if not the world. The large pedestrian center has everything from shopping to restaurants and is one of the oldest areas of the cities with many well-preserved monuments and buildings. 15.  Novi Sad, Serbia Novi Sad, Serbia’s 2nd largest city,  is one of the rare places in the Balkans where you don’t see the Ottoman legacy. This city stayed firmly within the Austro-Hungarian empire and some in Serbia would say this city is more Hungarian than it is Serbian. There are 11 official languages in Novi Sad with the first two being Serbian and Hungarian, respectively. It is a truly lovely place and easy to reach less than 2 hours by train from Belgrade. 16.  Berat, Albania This Ottoman “City of a Thousand Windows” is stunning to behold. The views from either side of the river or the castle on the hill will have you shooting photos constantly. 17.  The Albanian Riviera Want pristine beaches? Albania has those too. One of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, sharing the Adriatic and Ionian Seas with its neighbors Montenegro and Greece, but much less crowded. Read More:  Practical Guide and Tips for Visiting Albania 18.  Lake Ohrid, Macedonia This idyllic lake with an ancient village around it is the perfect spot to unwind on a Balkans adventure. Make sure to catch the sunset at the Church of St. John. 19.  Skopje, Macedonia Skopje is a pretty, albeit odd city. Most of it is new and rebuilt in this neoclassical style complete with more statues per square inch than any city in the world. This “makeover” happened in 2014 and has been controversial. There is a traditional section of the city, the old bazaar,  where the Ottoman history is evident. 20.  Prizren, Kosovo (from above) Prizren is a cute little city with extremely friendly locals, inexpensive large portions of food and a fortress on the hill where you can catch a killer sunset over the city. In my case, it was rainy and overcast yet still breathtaking. 21. Prizren, Kosovo (from below) There’s just something about these old bridges that give the scene an enchanting quality. 22.  Ljubljana, Slovenia Is this the most beautiful city in the world? It would get my vote. With the pastel pink church, a castle on the hill and a dragon bridge, it’s almost as if a princess designed it. 23.  Lake Bled, Slovenia 24.  Lake Bled (it gets 2 pictures because…so pretty) Read More:  4 Days in Magical Slovenia 25.  Piran, Slovenia Nope, not done with Slovenia yet. This little country has tons of awesome spots including this coastal town in the Istria region, close to Italy. More pastel goodness and a beautiful coast. Come on Slovenia, now you are just showing off. Have you been to the Balkans? What was your favorite place? Pin it!

Things about Japan that you Didn’t Know

Last year, we spent a whole month travelling Japan. While it had been a dream for Simon to visit the country, I personally didn’t expect too much from it.

Here are some things that we learned while in the country and that you might not know either.

A Perfect 2 Week Itinerary for Greece

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

Greece really is all that and a bag of chips. If Greece was a man, I would marry him. That’s how in love I am. Few places make me feel so “at home”. Maybe it’s the warmth and openness of the people and the fact that despite having severe economic hardships the past few years, they are still unbelievably generous. Maybe it’s the absolute gorgeousness of the country with its over 6000 thousand islands dotting the Aegean and Ionian seas. Or maybe it’s the cheese. There are at least 12 types that I know of, by the way. I can’t pin it down to one thing, it’s the whole package. You hopefully can discover for yourself and let me know what you love about it. Here is a suggestion for a perfect 2 week itinerary for Greece. Per my usual, I will include lodging and food options that were especially awesome. Basics Location:  Balkan Peninsula Language:  Greek. English is spoken well in most places. Currency:  Euro. Easy to find ATMs. Credit card taken in many places but on the smaller islands and at food kiosks it may be cash only. Getting Around Flying:    You can find relatively inexpensive flights between Athens and the larger islands like Santorini, Mykonos, Zakynthos and Corfu. These flights are typically an hour or less in duration. Driving Driving in Greece is fairly easy. I didn’t find it too difficult even when some of the signs were in Greek! “It’s all Greek to me!” LOL Ferries You can ferry (or car ferry) from Athens to many islands and then in between islands. There are fast and slow ferries. The frequency varies by the season and the costs vary by the time of day and which type of ferry. http://www.greekferries.gr Bus:  I have no experience with the bus system other than on a few islands which I will explain in later sections.   2 Week Itinerary For Greece I will provide two options. One for the person who doesn’t mind rushing and being on the go; the person who wants to hit the popular spots. The other is for those who prefer a more relaxed pace and prefer less touristy areas. You can always come up with your own combination of the two! Option 1 This itinerary takes you to the most popular islands but in different seas so you can get a taste of everything. I personally think it is shameful to go to Greece and not see some spectacular mainland sights, so I included them as well! Day 1 Arrive Athens If you arrive in the morning, spend the day exploring the Acropolis and Plaka neighborhood. You can also hike to Philopappos hill for sunset and great views. If you arrive in the evening, have dinner and get up early the next day to really see the most! For this option, I would rent a car and then get rid of it before going to the islands, unless you really want to have it there. Depends on your budget and preference. Having the car means you must take the car ferries and can’t fly. This may increase your travel times but you can balance the savings from not flying against the expense of having a car. I’m not a mathematician and can’t work this out so quickly! Day 2 Athens I think Athens deserves 2 days at least despite what many say.  Athens is lovely and fascinating with centuries of history. Consider staying in the Monastiraki or Psirri neighborhoods. They are walking distance to everything and very cool with a local feel. I stayed in this Airbnb. Use my code for $40 credit when you sign up! www.airbnb.com/c/cherenes20 Day 3  Drive to Delphi It takes about 2.5  hours (183 km). Depending on how much you were able to see in Athens, you can choose to leave early, or in the evening.  If you get there during the day you can spend the day exploring the most important archaeological site in Greece, one of most important in the world. Visit the Athenian Treasury, the Temple of Apollo and the Temple of Venus, among other impressive structures. The town of Arachova nearby is a charming ski town in the winter and in other seasons very cute with shops and restaurants with scenic views. Have lunch or dinner at in Arachova or in Delphi To Stay I stayed a guest house called Pitho, run by a very sweet and helpful man who prepares a wonderful breakfast. He even makes his grandmother’s sour cherry jam. Yum! He will recommend a great restaurant down the street. I forget the name but it was wonderful! Day 4  Delphi/Meteora If you had enough time in Delphi you can either sleep late, (ahhhh) then head to Meteora or hang out and shop in Arachova a bit. Eventually, take the 3-hour drive to Meteora (230km). Try to get there for sunset if you can. See the monasteries in this lighting is magic. Be prepared for lots of company with tripods. LOL. Go early and claim a spot. Day 5 Meteora Spend the day exploring the mystical and magnificent monasteries. Some involve lots of steps so be ready to exercise. Females must cover shoulders and legs (everybody has to really).  They provide a skirt you can wear over your pants. Have dinner in the base town of Kalambaka. To Stay I stayed at the Petrino Guest House.  Was nice and cozy guest house with decent sunset views from some rooms. The Hotel Dupioni also looked very nice but was unfortunately full when I was there. Day 6  Drive back to Athens This will be kind of a long drive. Up to you to if you want to pound it out early and have some more time in Athens, or do it leisurely. The scenery along the way is stunning and you will want to take photos! Day 7  Fly or take ferry to Santorini Santorini is a volcanic island full of whitewashed villages surrounding by deep blue seas. It’s world famous and rightly so with this scenery. It was created by a volcanic eruption, one of the largest volcanic events recorded on Earth, creating a four-mile-wide caldera. This caldera is where millions flock every year to get those perfect sunset views. This is THE iconic Greek Island. Just be prepared to share the beauty with thousands of your best human friends. To Stay You can choose to say in either the Oia (pronounced ee-a)) area or the Thira area. These are the two main villages. Thira (Fira) is where the ferry lands. Oia is on the northernmost tip and is the most famous village with the sunset views you’ve probably seen a zillion pics of. It is EXPENSIVE!!!! If you want one of those Instagram worthy cave hotels with a pool and incredible views be prepared to dish out between $500-$1000 or more nightly during the summer. These places are cheaper in October but still pricey. You can stay ten minutes south of Oia with a view facing the opposite way (still pretty water views but not as iconic) for under $200.  In Thira it is much more reasonable and there is more to do there as well. It is more centrally located so you can go to more places with less effort. I stayed once in Thira at Volcano View Hotel and loved it but it is a splurge. I also stayed close to Oia at Agnadi Villas. They were very nice and you can easily walk into Oia. There was also a bus stop across the street. There are hostels available in Thira as well. Getting Around If you have a car, use it! It is a big island. You can rent a quad (ATV) for around 40-50 euro per day. Or you can use the bus system. It is fairly uncomplicated however it can fill up quickly in the high season when coming back from Oia and won’t stop at subsequent stops. Very annoying. Day 8  Santorini I’m just going to list a few key things to do in Santorini. You can easily cover all these activities in 3 days. Visit iconic Oia. The town doesn’t have much to do, just cute cafes and shops and gorgeous views for dayzzzz.  I was there the end of August and went very early to walk around and get photos without the masses in them. I went at 7 am and by 10 am it was packed. This is a good time to grab breakfast and then maybe hike down to the relatively uncrowded beach called Ammoudi Bay. This is a great spot to swim although not really a beach. Take the path down from Oia to the Ammoudi port then turn left and walk along the water’s edge for 5 minutes. There’s a small island that you can swim out to that has fab views. Sunsets If you want to see the famous Oia sunset, get your spot early. I suggest Kastro restaurant. You need a reservation. It is in a perfect location.  Other spots that have great sunset views in Oia include the Venetian Castle or you can walk sort of to the “end” and there is a huge windmill with a little bar. I recommend sitting there OR get a spot on the wall behind the windmill for gorgeous windmill shots! Yeah, OK Santorini. Your stupid sunsets are pretty damn sweet. Do you all understand how many people were packed like sardines in those cute little alleys, pushing and shoving to get a postcard sunset pic? Of course I wanted no part in that and managed to find my own little spots💛🌅. Do you have any secret sunset watching spots in touristy places you want to share with moi??? A post shared by Cherene (@wanderingredheadcher) on Aug 30, 2017 at 5:35am PDT The further “in” you walk, the longer it will take you to walk out because of the bottleneck of people jammed into tiny alleys. I didn’t love this part. I actually became quite hostile. I recommend getting away from the hot spot early and facing the other direction from where the sun actually went down. The opposite direction usually gets the pink and purple colors. After the sunset is when the sky really becomes impressive if you ask me. This photo taken when you first enter Oia. Nobody is here! Hiking You can hike from Fira to Oia. It is 10 km (6.2 miles) and takes 2-4 hours.  Beaches Red Beach is stunning to see with red cliffs surrounding it, but isn’t the best beach to sunbathe on. Better to gawk at, take photos and then visit nearby Akrotiri. Perissa and Perivolas. These are essentially one long black sand beach that is sort of the party beach. Akrotiri Some call this the Pompeii of Santorini. It was once covered from a volcanic eruption. Very cool place to see! Santo Wines This place is a great way to chill, enjoy views and not be annoyed by tons of people. You can get here an hour before sunset and claim a table. Order a big ass cheese place and do a wine tasting. Be prepared for some generous pour. I recommend the tables all the way to the north part of the deck, facing the northern tip of the caldera. You can taste 12 wines for 25 euro or something like that.  Whatever the price is….its 5 euro less for 6 wines. This is a no-brainer folks! Day 9   Santorini Places to see the sunset Akrotiri Lighthouse Santo Winery Venetian Castle in Oia Kastro Restaurant Get a reservation! Imerovigli (Village in between Fira and Oia).   Has direct sunset views. It is quieter than both Oia and Fira and at a higher elevation. Here is a great guide to sunset in Santorini written by a photographer! Santorini Sunset Spots Day 10  Fly or ferry to Mykonos To Stay Mykonos Town Stay near the town if you like walking to restaurants and shops. I stayed in a place called Kouros that has incredible views! You can take buses to get to the beach areas. Paradise Beach Area I have never stayed in this region but I know others that have found hostels right on the beach! Getting Around Mykonos is also a big island. They have a bus system if you don’t have your own car. If you stay near Mykonos town you can walk to most places unless you want to visit beaches. Day 11   Mykonos Mykonos is oozing with charm. And bougainvillea. Make sure you allow time to wander through the tiny adorable streets and get lost. You won’t really get lost. It’s too small. You will find gorgeous streets and small squares everywhere. Make sure to see the famous windmills and Little Venice. You can take a day trip to the island of Delos, the 2nd most important archaeological site after Delphi. In Mykonos you mostly go to the beach, lie by the pool and gawk at the view or wander around the town taking photos of blue domed churches with bright pink bougainvillea everywhere. At night you can find a vibrant party scene. Not a bad way to spend time! Day  12  Corfu Corfu is the most popular island on the Ionian side. I added this to the itinerary in case you want to see many different sides of Greece. This island looks very different than the whitewashed volcanic Aegean Islands. Some say this is THE most beautiful island in Greece. Rumor has it that Homer was imaging Corfu when he wrote the Iliad. I recommend staying in Corfu Town. It is central with an airport and a ferry port. You can arrange tours of the island from here. Make sure to try to local kumquat liquor! Maybe not at 9 am like I did! Day 13   Corfu Definitely, spend a day exploring the island, it’s views and beaches. Take a boat trip for beautiful views from the sea and explore little caves along the way.  By the way, if you want to play a fun drinking game, have a sip every time I use the word “views” in this post! Read More:  Things to do in Corfu Day 14   Depart (fly Corfu to Athens/Athens to destination) As always, you can find great lodging of all types here: Booking.com FYI you can take a ferry from Corfu to Albania. It is only 30 minutes. Read More:  Practical Guide and Tips for Visiting Albania Option 2 For this itinerary just see option 1 for all the places that are repeated. I won’t go into as much detail here. Day 1   Arrive Athens Day 2  Athens Day 3  Delphi Day 4  Meteora Day 5  Meteora Day 6  Drive to Athens Day 7  Choose Santorini OR Mykonos.  Santorini has more natural opportunities and archaeology, wineries, etc. Mykonos has more parties and a more vibrant capital town.  Mykonos town is adorable and incredibly scenic.   Santorini has unreal sunsets. Doing both is expensive and touristy AF This photo was taken right before the sunset tourist rush. I was able to enjoy this lovely view relatively unbothered for a few lovely minutes before people became claiming their sunset spot. Day 8  Santorini (see option 1 itinerary) Day 9  Santorini Day 10  Milos You can easily ferry from Santorini to Milos. Milos is incredible. There is so much to do here! You can get around by taxi (expensive), your own car, rent a scooter or ATV. In high season these can be hard to get if you don’t reserve ahead of time. I was one of these people who didn’t plan ahead so I couldn’t get any wheels. The scooter rentals sometimes won’t rent to people without a special driver’s license. To Stay Adamas  This is where the ferry lands. It is cute and a good spot to book anything you want to do on the island. My hotel was 5 minutes from the ferry which was super convenient. It also is a central bus stop. It doesn’t have the best atmosphere but is cute. Plaka   This is more of a typical scenic whitewashed village. Milos has my favorite beach in all of Europe.  Sarakiniko. Amazing. I went at sunset and again in the morning. I wanted to see it in every kind of light. I’ve been walking in dreamland for weeks…please don’t wake me. What are you dreaming about these days? . . . . . #girldiscoverers #thediscoverer A post shared by Cherene (@wanderingredheadcher) on Sep 4, 2017 at 2:24pm PDT Day 11   Milos The colorful fisherman village of Klima is fun to visit. I was surprised how many other tourists had not heard of it. It isn’t the easiest place to get to if you don’t have wheels. You have to kind of hike down to it from the catacombs/Roman Theatre. Interestingly, at the beginning of this path you will see the spot where they found the famous Venus de Milo, which is now in the Louvre. Day 12  Milos Visit the main village of Plaka which is very traditional and charming.  Make sure to see the amazing sunset from the church/castle. Many people stand on top of the church as you can see. First of all, I find this disrespectful. Second, the view is better from further up! Many people congregate on the castle but I think the best view is in a less crowded spot in between the two. Day 13   Milos Take a day to see Kleftiko Beach.  The unique rock formations are stunning. You must take a boat trip to see it. You can book these easily from the port town of Adamas. Swimming in this warm crystal clear water is heavenly. You can discover caves and ultra blue lagoons. Since I haven’t posted about Milos ye (I’m WAY behind), I will direct you to a great post about spending 4 days there. https://www.crazytravelista.com/4-day-milos-itinerary/ Day 14 Departure (Sad!) Take the ferry to Santorini then fly to Athens OR ferry from Milos to Athens ***If you have more time (4-5 more days), consider the island of Zakynthos. Read More: Discover Your New Favorite Greek Island, Zakynthos Must Try Greek Dishes Moussakka This is sort of like Greek lasagna. It is potatoes, layered with seasoned ground meat and tomatoes and bechamel sauce, sometimes with grated cheese on top. One of the best ones I had was oddly, at the airport! Shrimp Saganaki  This shrimp is usually served in the skillet full of yummy tomato sauce and feta, best scooped up with some bread. Cheese Saganaki   This is flambeed cheese and I can’t get enough of it. They typically use a hard cheese like Halloumi, Karalotyri or Graviera that can be heated and not fall to pieces. It just gets really nice and melty so eat it while it’s hot! With bread of course! Grilled Chicken or Lamb The Greek way is to serve it with lemon with either lemony rice or potatoes (i’m all about that lemon) Greek Salad (well…duh)  but depending on where you are the type of cheese in here will change. It could be feta or halloumi or others depending on the island.  The tomatoes literally will make you cry. They are so red and sweet. (Why can’t we have these America?) I read that Greeks eat more cheese than the French. Bring your lactose intolerance pills! Gyro  I don’t care where else in the world you have had one of these.  It will not be as good. Not even half as good. The way they take the pita off the grill before wrapping it and the perfect few french fries they stick inside all make it so freaking good. I don’t even like to eat meat but these are too good to not eat.  The choices are usually chicken or pork. Souvlaki  This is similar to gyro except the meat is not shaved, it is more kebab like. Mostly the same otherwise. About Refugees in Greece You may be hearing murmurs of people concerned about going to Greece because of the refugee crisis. If you don’t know anything about it, here’s the deal.   In case you have never seen the news since 2010, there has been a war in Syria for over 7 years now, creating the worst refugee crisis in the world since WW2. Most of the refugees are in Jordan, Lebanon or Turkey but many have braved the treacherous sea crossing from Turkey to the Greek Island of Lesbos.  Due to geography, Greece has been saddled with the brunt of middle eastern refugees and at some point in early 2015, the EU put a crackdown on the borders for refugee movement out of Greece. Greece now, with their own economic problems, is forced to care for over 50,000 refugees. They aren’t all from Syria. Many are from Iraq and Afghanistan, due to conflicts going on for over a decade  (dare I say from US interference). These refugees are supposed to be resettled by the UN somewhere else in Europe but due to the inefficient system, this is a painfully slow process. Refugee camps that were supposed to be temporary are now becoming somewhat permanent homes for those poor people. Greece is doing the best they can under the circumstances. This is what I mean by saying that the people here are amazingly giving. Read More: Volunteering with Refugees in Greece The bottom line is, you should know this is happening but it likely won’t affect you. Some of the most obvious refugee camps (at the port of Piraeus for example), have been shut down. Some refugees may be seen begging in major squares in Athens.  You are not going to be confronted with hordes of refugees moving around. If you see these people, talk to them! They are probably educated and would love to be treated like a human being. If you are interested in donating to help refugees specifically in Greece…… The best thing you can do is spend your tourism dollars in this wonderful country! I have been three times now and plan to go as much as possible over the rest of my life. I can’t get enough! Have you been to Greece? Where is your favorite place? Pin it!

4 Day Road Trip Itinerary for the Atacama Desert of Chile

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

Chile is a country that literally has it all. Endless coastline, Patagonia with its pristine mountains, glaciers and penguins, modern hip cities, a thriving art scene and a huge bad ass desert. The Atacama Desert is more than just sand. It is home to one of the world’s largest salt flats, 3 of the world’s 6 flamingo species (yes flamingos!) and is one of the most striking natural places I’ve ever seen. And I get around!  Here is a suggested road trip itinerary for the Atacama Desert along with all the useful tips I could think of. Pre-Planning Info for Chile Capital: Santiago Language: Spanish Currency:  Chilean Peso. Easy to find ATMS. Many restaurants take credit card but most entrance fees in desert must be paid in cash. 1 USD is 591 CLP.  It’s confusing because sometimes it is written like this  CLP 60.000. This means 60,000 pesos and in Spanish they will say sixty “mille”. Just so you can extra confused. How to Get Around: To reach the center of the Atacama region,  San Pedro de Atacama, you have to fly to Calama. Flights from Santiago to Calama are 2 hours and cost around $100. I think renting a car once there is the best way to explore the Atacama region, otherwise, you have to rely on tours each day. Driving in the region was fairly easy but the roads aren’t always good so a sturdy car is necessary. Some will recommend a 4 wheel drive or SUV but it’s not necessary unless you are planning to go to some offroad areas, such as driving to the Geyser de Tatio. We did ok with a mid-sized sedan. Many roads are gravel and rough so you have to drive slowly. Fun Facts: The Atacama Desert is the driest nonpolar desert in the world. There is practically no precipitation. It also is the oldest desert in the world with the only other desert competing for this title, the Namib Desert. The Atacama Salt Flat (Salar de Atacama) is the 2nd largest salt flat in the world after the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. 4 Day Itinerary for the Atacama Desert Day 1:  Arrive as early as possible in Calama. From the airport, stop at the Cordillera de Sal (Salt Mountain) and marvel at the endless views of the red rock. Find your lodging and check in. After this, you can take a half-day trip to the Valley of the Moon and stay for sunset there. Maybe join a stargazing tour in the evening or just relax with a nice meal in town. Day 2: Drive to the Reserva Nacional de los Flamencos. This can be confusing because almost the entire region is part of this flamingo sanctuary and national park.  I will discuss this day in more depth below. On this particular day, we drove to an area that we saw on the map and knew nothing about. At first, we thought we made a huge mistake but ended up having a fabulous day. Day 3:  Visit Salar de Atacama (the Salt Flat) including Lagunas Chaxa, Cejar and Tebenquiche with a stop in the historic town of Toconao. Day 4:  Get up early and visit Geyser del Tatio. Then lounge at the pool, walk around the town of San Pedro or do another activity you missed earlier. There is an afternoon flight back to Santiago. Note:  We did this at a relaxed place with lots of photo stops, eating stops, being lost stops, etc. You can certainly fit in more if you are not…ahem…as “laid back” of a traveler. There is plenty to do in this region! Cordillera de la Sal The name of “Cordillera de la Sal” (Salt Mountains) derives from the fact that its rocks possess a great quantity of calcium sulphate, and gives them the aspect of being splashed with salt. Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon) Once here you will see how it got its name. You feel that you are somewhere other-wordly with lunar landscapes. The entrance fee here is 3000 pesos. The people at the entrance building only speak Spanish but they will give you a map and try to explain the park to you. Many people will tour this park by bicycle and as fun as that would be, make sure you are prepared for a strenuous and very hot day. Honestly, I am usually up for a physical adventure but I was very happy to be in my car as I drove past miserable looking bikers. This is the most touristy part of the region, and usually the place everyone will visit. That being said, I still didn’t find it that crowded in November which is right before the height of the season. The Salt Cave One of the highlights of the Moon Valley is walking through this salt cave. You need a flashlight (or cell phone) because it gets really dark and it is easy to trip or bump your head. It is also chilly in the caves. At some points I was worried that there was no end but then you would see a glimpse of light. At the end there are endless places for a triumphant photo shoot. Please don’t judge my inappropriate hiking clothing. I honestly did not research well and didn’t realize I’d be hiking on sand dunes and walking through salt caves. I look like I’m on my way to a work happy hour. Oh well. My flip-flops got me through the day, only falling apart ten times or so! Valley of Death While I didn’t technically visit the valley of death which is mainly for sandboarding, this is a view of it from the Valley of the Moon. You hike up the dunes and this view (which is only a segment of the entire vista) is your reward. We stayed here and watched the sunset (which was just ok and very chilly FYI).  The sunset in November was around 7:30 pm. Most people had already left by this time. Reserva Nacional de Los Flamencos This was the day I mentioned above where we thought we made a huge mistake. We saw this on the map and thought…let’s go see flamingos! It turns out this is not THE place to see flamingos, although there were some there. As we drove we noticed gorgeous mountains and on the map we realized were literally on the Bolivian border. Had we gone all the way through this nature reserve we would have ended up in Argentina. It is very hot in San Pedro de Atacama so we dressed for that weather. As we drove we ended up at a significant elevation which completely took us by surprise. We found ourselves thirsty and short of breath. When stopping for photos we were literally freezing. I checked my snapchat elevation (I know….so technical) and found that we were at over 14,000 feet! Thankfully I had a sweater! I’m shivering in this picture by the way! Despite the cold, we were blown away but the beauty of this reserve. We only saw two other cars the entire day. It was awesome to have this place all to ourselves. We passed a lagoon with flamingos and had lunch with this view. Often we would pass these cute little guys which I think are vicunas (either that or guanacos). Anyone know for sure? Jumping to try to warm up! I so badly wanted to play with this desert fox that came very close to our car. Every few minutes we had to stop and take photos. To get here take route 23 south from San Pedro then 27 west towards the Bolivian border. It’s very cold and windy. We took route 27 about halfway through the reserve then turned and went back. Bring lunch and lots of water. You need it in the desert and even more at altitude. It took us about 2 hours to visit this reserve and is one hour drive from San Pedro. Laguna Chaxa This is one of the many lagunas in the Salar de Atacama (the salt flats) which is all included in the Reserva Nacional de los Flamencos. THIS is the place to see Flamingos. Atacama has 3 of the world’s 6 flamingo species, the Andean, Chilean and James flamingos. The entrance fee is 3000 CLP. This place is breathtaking. I couldn’t get over all the perfect lines of color from the white salt flats, the turquoise lagoon and the pink mountains. The salt flat is seemingly endless. It doesn’t feel like a desert (if you can ignore the blazing heat, your dry flaking skin and unyielding thirst). The flamingos get their beautiful color from eating the brine shrimp which can live in the high salinity. Laguna Cejar This is the only lagoon you can swim in. The salt content here may be even higher than the Dead Sea which means you float! The admission fee is a bit steep here at 15.000 CLP ($25 USD) and includes the changing rooms and showers (which you will need to get the salt crust off your body). Again, hard to believe this is a desert. Warning…it’s cold! I took a few photos and got the hell out! The salt actually burned my skin. Toconao This is a small village 38 km (24 miles) south of San Pedro de Atacama and has one of the first recorded civilizations in the region. The most notable building in Toconao is its church. The bell tower is separated from the main church structure and dates from 1750. It is located along the main road (Rte 23) between San Pedro and the nature reserves). Laguna Tebenquiche This lagoon is gorgeous and not too far from Laguna Cejar. The road to get here is probably the worst we drove so be careful and take it slow. Other Things to Do Sandboard on the dunes in the Valley of Death See the Geyser del Tatio at sunrise. This is a volcanic geothermal field, where water and steam columns spring up violently from deep under the ground. Set at a height of 4,000 m (16,800 ft), these are the highest geysers in the world. The peak activity is at dawn. After when it gets warmer, you can bathe in the thermal pools near the geysers and visit the town of Machucha to relax for a while. (I was there on election day and this was closed. Go figure.). I hear it is scary to drive here before dawn so I recommend a tour. Visit Pukara de Quitor, a pre-Colubian archaeological site. Visit the Puritama Hot Springs, a series of 8 geothermal pools at the base of a canyon Go to the ALMA Observatory or do a StarGazing Tour.  You can read more about stargazing here:  Stargazing in San Pedro de Atacama Where to Stay Staying around San Pedro de Atacama will provide a nice base for exploring the region. There is lodging in all price ranges from hostels to ultra-luxurious resorts. I was shocked at how expensive this region can be. I stayed at a mid-range place called Atacama Lofts. It had a cool hippie vibe and I really appreciated their commitment to the environment. You choose between a glamping in a tent and sharing kitchen space or having a bungalow with private kitchen and terrace space. The room is more expensive of course but reasonable. Every morning the owners leave fresh bread and supplies in a basket outside your door. You then can make your own breakfast The fresh baguette was delicious and they provided fresh eggs, cheese, tomatoes and some fruit and juice. There was a coffee maker in each room as well. We really enjoyed this and there was enough food that we were able to pack a lunch for ourselves each day. I loved breakfast on the terrace!

Practical Tips and Itinerary for the Balkans

by csaradar @ WanderingRedHead

Oh The Balkans. I think it’s fair to say I’m smitten…perhaps even low key obsessed. This region is very special to me. I have no family or ethnic ties to it, but for some reason, it speaks to me.  I have now spent the equivalent of 3 months in the Balkan countries, including Greece, Romania, and Bulgaria. While these countries are technically in the Balkan peninsula, I feel that those countries are sufficiently large enough not to include in this post. Also, it’s not as easy to visit those countries in conjunction with the ex-Yugoslav countries and Albania unless you have many weeks to travel. This post is meant to give you some practical tips and itinerary for the Balkans. You can learn more about the other Balkan countries I mentioned here. I’m currently working on a Greece post so subscribe and stay tuned!! One Week Itinerary for Romania 7 Day Road Trip in Bulgaria History and Basic Information I think that if you are going to spend time in the politically charged Balkans, you MUST learn a little about the history and the current politics. It will help you understand the region better and locals will appreciate you having some knowledge. Don’t be afraid. It’s completely safe. There are few places in the world that I have felt safer, to be honest! The Former Yugoslavia Most of the current Balkan nations were part of the Ex Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia dissolved in 1989, less than a decade after the death of their infamous dictator, Josip Broz Tito in 1980. These countries today are Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Macedonia, and Kosovo. Many of you may remember the Balkans wars of the 1990’s that ensued after the fall of Yugoslavia. It was incredibly complicated since despite people being somewhat segregated by their ethnic and religious groups, they were not geographically separated in a way that made the breaking up of Yugoslavia easy. Yugoslav Wars Slovenia was the first to declare independence in 1991. This lead to the Ten Day War where Slovenia resisted the Yugoslav People’s Army, which had headquarters in the capital, Belgrade. This began the Yugoslav Wars.  Slovenia escaped this conflict with minimal casualties.  I believe their proximity to western Europe as well as having Croatia as a geographical buffer zone were factors in them being able to break away, especially with the support of the Vatican, Germany and the European Commission. Not to mention that the ethnically Slovenian and Croatian members of the Yugoslav army deserted at this time, leaving mostly Serbs and Montenegrins. Croatia was the next to declare independence in the same year. The former capital of Yugoslavia was Belgrade (currently Serbia).  This was more concerning to Belgrade because of a sizeable Serbian minority there. The siege of Dubrovnik was shortly after.  Not going to lie, things became really ugly after this. The entire war lasted from 1991-1995. Bosnia probably fared the worst in this war, being caught in the middle between Serbia and Croatia and suffering greatly with ethnic cleansing and massacres. There are Catholic Croatian Bosnians, Orthodox Serbian Bosnians, and Muslim Bosnians (Bosniaks) all mixed in the country now known as Bosnia. Again, it is hard to summarize the entire situation in a paragraph but I want you to have a basic understanding of how bloody, devastating and complex this war was. I believe nationalism, more so than religious differences, played a huge role. Don’t think of this a war-torn place. You will see remnants of the war in certain places but overall it is not “in your face”.  Today, there is peace and families are attempting to move forward. However, the wounds from the 1990’s aren’t that old and it will take generations to truly forgive. Also, don’t let this difficult history make you hesitant to speak with locals. They truly embrace tourists here and are eager to talk about their countries. The Balkans people are very proud and have much to share regarding their culture and history. Read More: Bosnia, Europe’s Best Kept Secret Kosovo Kosovo is the “youngest” country, obtaining independence from Serbia in 1999. This, of course, was not so simple and involved a war that NATO and the United States were very much involved with (that has made the USA popular in some places and not popular in others). I won’t go into that too much here, but it is something I was fortunate to discuss at length with both locals in Kosovo and Serbia. This is a HOT issue so if you decide to discuss this with locals…do more listening than talking! Read More: Complete Itinerary For Kosovo To summarize, there were the Balkan Wars of 1991-1995. Then the Kosovo war of 1999. Got it? Albania Albania was not part of the former Yugoslavia. They had their own communist dictator who truly isolated the country and kept Albanians from exposure to the outside world. His policies also made them one of the poorest countries in Europe.  They ended communist rule by democratic election in 1992. In contrast, Tito, of Yugoslavia, allowed his citizens to travel. The communism practiced in the former Yugoslavia was very different than that of the Soviet Union. Tito managed to keep a fine balance of relations with the United States and NATO as well as the Soviets. You will meet many “Yugo-Stalgic” folks, usually from Generation X who think that economically things were better back then. In Albania more than the other countries, you will be shocked by how empty some truly amazing tourist sites are. They have a stunning coastline, mountains and the people are friendly. They seem legit surprised sometimes by having tourists! Language The Slavic countries all share a common language. The official language of the former Yugoslavia was Serbian-Croatian and that is the language still spoken. Slovenia and Macedonia are the two countries whose language has deviated from this and is the most different but they still can mostly understand each other. In Kosovo, the majority of people are ethnically Albanian and therefore speak Albanian. Albania has its own language, Albanian that doesn’t have roots to any other language. English is spoken widely in most of these countries with the exception of Albania. Albanians are more likely to speak Italian as a 2nd language. In most of the countries (including Romania and Bulgaria), I was VERY impressed with how well they speak English. In fact, the English spoken in this region is better than what I’ve experienced in Spain, France and Italy.  Who knew? Read More:  Practical Guide and Tips for Visiting Albania Currencies The Balkans are generally cheaper than the rest of Europe with the exception of Montenegro and the coastal areas of Croatia. They each have their own currency but Euros are accepted widely. You won’t be able to use a credit card everywhere. Take out some cash at the airport, train station or bus station upon arrival. Be aware that you won’t always be able to exchange your unused currency from certain places Slovenia:  Euro Croatia:  Kuna Montenegro:  Euro Albania:  Lek Kosovo:  Euro Macedonia:  Macedonian Dinar Serbia   Serbian Dinar Bosnia   Convertible Mark Getting Around This is the most challenging part of any trip unless you have a car. If you can rent a car, I would recommend it. Most of these countries do not have a train system so the bus is your best bet for public transportation. If you rent a car, keep in mind that there is often an extra charge for different point of drop off. How to choose your starting city. This should be somewhere you can fly into easily. Flying in and out of the same city often cheaper but less convenient. Sarajevo, Zagreb and Belgrade are all cities which seem to have the most affordable flights in and out but this changes often based on season, time of booking and the mysterious ways of the airline industry. In the Itineraries below I will be more specific about how to get from place to place but here are some general rules with common routes. I recommend this website for planning all transportation between cities, regardless of the mode. It will give you all the possible options with times and prices. www.Rome2Rio.com Major Train Routes Ljubljana, Slovenia to Zagreb,  Croatia      4.5-6 hours Mostar, Bosnia to Sarajevo, Bosnia            2.5 hours Belgrade, Serbia to Novi Sad, Serbia         1 hour Belgrade to Nis, Serbia                                2.5 hours “when planning a trip be aware of the lateness of the Serbian railway system. Buses are more reliable and generally more enjoyable to travel with.” (that’s a quote from the Serbian transport website) Belgrade to Podgorica, Montenegro           10 hours Major Bus Routes Ljubljana, Slovenia to Rovinj, Croatia          5 hours Dubrovnik, Croatia to Mostar, Bosnia         3 hours Dubrovnik, Croatia to Kotor, Montenegro    2-4 hours Podgorica, Montenegro to Tirana, Albania   3 hours 45 min Podgorica, Montenegro to Kotor, Montenegro   2 hours Tirana, Albania to Lake Ohrid, Macedonia or Skopje, Macedonia   ***See Below Lake Ohrid, Macedonia to Skopje, Macedonia    3 hours 15 min Skopje, Macedonia to Prizren or Pristina, Kosovo   2 hours Regarding transportation, Albania was the most challenging country being the newest to the influx of tourists and not having the most extensive infrastructure. The buses were not always reliable when you are outside of the bigger cities like Tirana or Berat. ***Getting From Tirana to Lake Ohrid is a “THING”. Please ask me privately if you are planning to go because it is too much to write here! Also, you can always hop a flight between capital cities, if you have the cash. Obviously, this is not the most eco-friendly method nor wallet-friendly but if you are really short on time and not in the mood for a 12-hour bus ride…at least you have that option. What You Need to Know About Travel to Both Serbia and Kosovo Be aware that Serbia does not recognize Kosovo as a country. This is a very sensitive topic and one to tread upon lightly.  I was told that I may not be permitted to enter Serbia if they saw that I had Kosovo stamped on my passport. Some border guards may consider that illegal entry into Serbia. I personally did not experience any problems at the border, nor did others I met. I was also told by a several Serbians that I shouldn’t even mention that I had been to Kosovo when having conversations with Serbians. However, I met many Serbians who loved having in-depth discussions about life and politics and I was able to speak frankly about my experience visiting Kosovo. Serbians have a reputation that I don’t feel they deserve. In fact, it is the country where I felt people wanted to talk to me the most! It is probably best to visit Serbia first if you are planning to visit both but this is not entirely necessary. The main thing to remember is that if you visit Kosovo first, you cannot enter Serbia directly after that. You must go to Macedonia or another country first. I went from Kosovo to Macedonia to Bulgaria THEN Serbia. No problem. I highly recommend you try to visit both places. In Kosovo don’t be surprised if people go out of their way to help you. I spoke with other tourists who were offered rides when they missed the bus and things like that. In Serbia, a random couple insisted on paying for my meal because they wanted me (as an American) to have a good opinion about Serbians! I was continually blown away by the kindness shown to me here.  Suggested Itineraries I want you to have an idea what is feasible to do with various amounts of time in various different locations. You can obviously mix and match as works best for you! 1 Week Itineraries Croatia and Montenegro Day 1 Zagreb Day 2 Stop at Plitvice Lakes on way to Split Day 3 Split  Split doesn’t require much time. You can spend half a day and take the ferry to Hvar island or another nearby island such as Brac or Vis. Hvar is the party island. Brac has great hiking. You can decide which best suits your personality Day 4 Hvar Island Day 5  Ferry back to Split and drive or take the bus to Dubrovnik Day 6  Spend the day exploring Dubrovnik. Walk the walls of the city, spend time at the beaches, do a Game of Thrones Tour, walk around the old city. Read More:  Ultimate Guide to Dubrovnik Day 7  Day Trip to Kotor/Budva Day 8  Depart from Dubrovnik *Tips for Ferries in Croatia. In the summer they run more frequently but can be more crowded. Book ahead of time, especially if you are taking the car ferry. Even if you have a ticket, your car may not get on if you don’t get it in line early enough.
