Are you looking for a nice hotel in Santorini?
Before looking for hotels, you need to decide where on the island you want to stay. The two biggest settlements are Fira and Oia, and Oia is the most famous one. Those blue domes you’ve seen on Instagram before? They are in Oia.
Oia is much more expensive than Fira, but the Aethrio Sunset Village provides great mid-range accommodation on Santorini. Daniel and I both enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to write a detailed review.
We fully paid for the stay ourselves, and all of the opinions below are our own. Hopefully, this hotel review can help you decide whether or not the Aethrio Sunset Village is the best place for your trip to Santorini!
Are you travelling to Bangkok?
While planning your trip, you might get overwhelmed with the number of things to do in Thailand’s capital city. In Bangkok, 2 days are barely enough to scratch the surface.
That’s why we’ve put together a guide that will help you choose how to spend your time. If you follow our 2-day Bangkok itinerary, you will get to explore temples, try the famous Thai street food, relax on a river cruise and much more.
And, most important, you get to have a lot of fun.
When talk comes to food in South America, people mention steaks and ceviche. Argentina is praised for its excellent beef and Peru for its huge variety of dishes. You might even know a few Brazilian or Colombian dishes. But have you ever heard of Bolivian food?
As I found out while visiting this Andean nation, the food in Bolivia is delicious. From market stalls to fancy restaurants, you will never run out of possibilities to try yet another dish. I’ve put together my favourite ones below, so you know what to ask for.
Also, if you want to learn more about Bolivian food, I recommend joining a foodie tour. We went with Red Cap Tours in La Paz, which was lots of fun and also very tasty.
But for now, let me recommend the Bolivian dishes I enjoyed most while travelling through the country.
It is always hard to choose a single favourite place when travelling through a country, but when it comes to Uzbekistan, Samarkand is one of the candidates. Stunning architecture, ancient history, what’s not to love about the most famous Silk Road city?
Sure, these days the sights are spread out all over the city, with many modern buildings in between. But I think it’s that mixture of modern and old that makes Samarkand so special and so interesting to explore. And while walking around, just think about what it must have looked like in the times of Marco Polo, when he tried to make his way to China.
To give you a taste of what to expect, let us show you some of the best things to do in Samarkand:
Have you ever ended up in the middle of nowhere and realised that you forgot to pack some essential items?
For me, one of the biggest appeals of staying in a jungle lodge in the middle of the Amazon was its remoteness. Far away from cities, traffic and big malls, I could enjoy nature. But it also meant I had to be extra careful when packing so I wouldn’t forget anything important.
You do not want to visit the jungle without insect repellent.
Unfortunately, knowing what to take to the rainforest can be difficult. That’s why we want to help you with our experience.
No matter whether you’re staying in the Amazon or a different part of the world, you will find this jungle packing list helpful. We used all of these items and were very glad to have them, so make sure to pack them before leaving.
Are you travelling to Patagonia and wondering where to stay in Torres del Paine?
A visit to this national park can easily become the highlight of your trip. When you’re thinking about where to stay near Torres del Paine, you’ll soon come across Puerto Natales. Most travellers base themselves here, but thoroughly enjoying nature is difficult when sleeping in a city.
That’s why you should consider staying overnight in Torres del Paine. You can find lots of great hotels and luxury campsites in the area, and we will cover the best ones in this post.
Note that if you’re planning to hike the W in Torres del Paine and wonder how to book the refugios and campsites along the way, we have a whole post dedicated to this fantastic trek. This post is about the best places to stay in Torres del Paine that are accessible without a hike.
One of the highlights of any trip to Patagonia is hiking in one of the many national parks.
If you’re planning on visiting Torres del Paine, the W trek is the perfect hike to show you the best of Patagonia. You get stunning views of mountains, lakes and forests and also have the chance of spotting wildlife along the way.
Unfortunately, hiking the W in Torres del Paine requires some preparation in advance.
Before we went, my friend and I spent a long time browsing through guidebooks, looking at maps and googling information. We even posted on forums and tried to find out as much about the Torres del Paine National Park as we could.
Here, I want to share our knowledge with you so you can experience the beauty of this hike. The W is one of the most impressive treks I’ve ever done on my travels and well worth the effort it takes to plan your trip.
Are you looking for adventures? Costa Rica is the perfect destination for anyone who loves adventure travel, rainforests, beaches and wildlife.
The country has so much to offer that it can be challenging to decide where to go. That’s why we’ve put together this itinerary for Costa Rica for 10 days. We’ll show you how to visit the highlights of the country. You’ll spend time swimming in waterfalls, watching sloths, relaxing on beaches and kayaking through the jungle.
At the same time, you’ll go on an amazing road trip through Costa Rica. When travelling through the country, expect to see stunning landscapes along the way.
Here is the best Costa Rica 10-day itinerary:
If you want to see Greece in 7 days, this itinerary is perfect for you.
Greece has so much to offer that you can spend a month here and you will still miss out on many places. When we planned our trip, we had three weeks and were only able to see a fraction of the country. Out of all the places we would have liked to go to, we could choose only a handful.
If you only have one week in Greece, you need to be even more selective. You can find lots of Greece travel ideas online, but do you know which ones are worth visiting and which ones you should leave for a later trip?
That’s why we have put together this 7-days Greece itinerary. You’ll see some of the most exciting places on mainland Greece while still having enough time to visit some of the islands. You can even slightly adapt this tour to your interest, to make it more family-friendly or turn it into a Greece honeymoon itinerary.
And if you have more time or need to shorten your trip, we also have some ideas for you at the end of this article!
