The Canyon of Doomed Birds is not something you’ll find on any Iceland’s Top Destination list. It’s because I made it up. But the place do exist.
We are also prone to be afraid of being afraid, and the conquering of fear produces exhilaration…
For such a small island, the varieties in landscape is astounding. It was one of the things that struck me most about Iceland.
I got out of Porto’s underground Metro and was instantly blinded by the sun. It was the first time I’d seen that kind of blue sky and sunlight – the kind that held no promise of rain – in almost a week. After over a month traipsing through France’s Brittany and Northern Spain, I was feeling a little tired of traveling, but Porto a refreshing change. It felt rejuvenating and I couldn’t wait to explore more.
I’m convinced that Los Picos is a gem of Spain that any self-professed outdoor lovers should not miss.
I’ve been back for about a week and I still can’t stop blabbing about Los Picos and the Cares Gorge. It’s surprising how little known this national park is in the States, even among my hiker friends.
Even if you’re only remotely into hiking, the Cares Gorge (and Los Picos) is truly spectacular and is worth a trip if you ever find yourself in Northern Spain.
Armed with my Kindle, I decided to go on my own txikiteo. I was hesitant at first because it seemed like such a lonely thing to go on a solo bar crawl. But honestly, after the first glass of wine, I didn’t even care. The tip is to find just the right bar.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I love roadtrips! Despite the crappy weather and the crowd, this roadtrip through Brittany medieval villages and coastline was no exception.
What’s it like to travel in Paris in August? It can be surreal sometimes, a virtually empty city mobbed by tourists. But the good thing is? It’s still Paris.
If Hawaii and Alaska had a baby, it would be tiny Iceland.
Wine making is still a big part of life here in Areni. A lot the wine you see on the roadside was still made through the old stomp-your-feet way before being fermented in blue plastic vats.
Armenia is known for its gorgeous monasteries in beautiful and remote settings (more on this later). For me, the highlight of Armenia will always be its people.
