Do you know that you can go cycling on Ozren mountain, take the canoe in Bovan Lake, climb the old town of Sokograd and then get to the beach, that you can also grind your own flour and make buns, or to ride a quad bike with the view of Rtanj mountain?
They told me that the northern island of Gozo is more rural than Malta, and they were right. Smaller by the two thirds than the main island, this one houses few settlements and coves, but also the orange-sand-beach, the great 16th-century-fort and the cave where the famous Odysseus was allegedly kept for seven years. So,
When I have decided to travel to Malta this summer, I was certainly looking forward to spending time by the sea. One just has to be allured by the surreal colors of the see-through water, cozy coves and interesting rock formations. I am not really into lying on sunbeds all day long, but one of
The attractions of Mdina Malta, the former island capital, are not to be missed. This is where the Maltese diverse heritage really comes to life. On one hand this was a bustling town during the Romans, while on the other the name itself reveals that it has something to do with the Arabs (medina meaning
Malta was not a destination I gave much thought earlier, at least not before I have visited the Old Town on Rhodes Greece. Not only that it is well kept and still in use, but it was built by – the Maltese knights (or the knights of Rhodes who fled the island after the Ottoman
I can’t finish this series without dedicating one post to animals. All of you probably know stories about monkeys at the Monkey Forest or the Uluwatu Temple complex where they often take sunglasses or cameras from visitors. I have told you already that you should buy fruit before taking a walk towards the actual temple.
Bali is special in a lot of ways. I don’t usually write about food when traveling, but the Balinese colorful markets, such variety of fruit and spices, along with few unusual meals I had on the island, came to be truly memorable.
Okay, so we have covered the most popular places to visit in Bali so far, famous temples being among the first. And I did mention few things I bought in Bali, but I feel I should dedicate the whole post to souvenirs and things to bring from the island. Why? Well, maybe because I was
The tradition of Bali is so colorful, radiating with life from every corner of the island being that the beach on the coast or the lush greenery inland. It is something you will witness in everyday life, it reflects in daily offerings, traditional dances, crafts etc.
Even though Bali is part of the (mostly Muslim) country of Indonesia, it has a strong Hindu tradition. More than 85 percent of the 4,2 million island inhabitants practice Balinese Hinduism. Hence so many Hindu temples – about 10,000 that are dedicated to different deities from the land and the sea. Bali is actually nicknamed
One of the landmarks I was eager to see in Bali was the so-called Mother Temple. It looked so surreal in all the photos I have seen thus far and I was so curious to climb up the ancient steps.
When I woke up that first morning in Bali, I didn’t know where I was exactly. The room was huge, there were birds singing outside in a manner that I have never heard before. I even looked up to see if maybe I have left the TV on the night before. Bright light was coming
Who would have thought Bali would become such a “trendy” island! I mean, sure, it was always popular because of its beauty, wonderfully lush nature and tradition, its dear smiling people, but this is way above what I might have expected few years ago when I visited for the first time.
