Mount Everest is not only the tallest but also probably the most famous mountain in the World. Halfway between Nepal and Tibet, this titan attracts every year thousands of people, from professional climbers who want to go to the summit to travellers looking for a challenge. The ascent to Everest Base Camp is one of Nepal’s most popular trekking routes, with 40,000 people doing it every year, and I wanted to be part of that number.

There are many reasons to hike to Everest Base Camp. In my case, I wasn’t just looking for natural beauty, an amazing experience or the chance to go to the top of the World. I wanted to challenge myself and see if I was going to be able to do it.…

“Put on your rain jacket,” the Kiwi guy said.

I looked up at the blue sky, with no cloud in sight.

“It protects you against mosquitos,” he added. “Trust me; I’ve been here for a couple of days already.”

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.…

Honduras

La Tigra was Honduras’ first national park, and well worth seeing on a day trip from Tegucigalpa. Not only is it home to mammals like pumas, armadillos and agoutis but also to many birds.

With a bit of luck, you can even spot the elusive quetzal. This colourful bird with a long tail plays a central role in Central America’s mythology and is also the national bird of Guatemala.

And even if you don’t find any animals, you will see thick forests, ferns, bromeliads and a wide variety of orchids.

Yet, despite all these unique plants and animals, barely any international visitors come to La Tigra. Most tourists either skip Honduras or stick to Copan and the Bay Islands, as these are the most accessible areas.…

Latvia

Are you thinking about visiting Latvia?

While this small northern country isn’t on most people’s radar yet, it should be. This Baltic state offered lots of surprises when we visited, and we ended up loving our time here. Yes, the country might not be big in size, but we found so many things to do in Latvia that we had a hard time choosing.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you take enough time when you visit this beautiful country. And to make things easier, we have put together a list of what to do in Latvia. We hope you’ll find them useful for planning your trip.

Latvia

When visiting Latvia, one of the best things to do is basing yourself in Riga and exploring the country on day trips. From here, you have the choice between seeing many different parts of Latvia. Do you want to visit the seaside in Jurmala? Or do you prefer strolling through the medieval town of Cesis?

Or are you expecting outdoor adventures, while also seeing a few castles along the way? Then you should head to Sigulda.

Here, you can hike through the Gauja National Park, explore caves and castles or seek out adrenaline rushes on the bobsleigh track. And the best part is that it only takes an hour to get here from Riga.…

Lithuania

What are the best things to do in Lithuania?

When we planned our trip to the Baltics, I spent a lot of research trying to find the best places to visit. For Lithuania, I already had a rough idea since I knew I wanted to see my great-great-grandmother’s hometown. And Vilnius, being the capital, seemed like an easy choice.

But for the rest? At that point, I didn’t know much about Lithuania, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. You’re probably in a similar situation, wondering where to go and how to spend your limited time. Fortunately, we’ve done all the research and travelled the country, so we can now share the highlights of Lithuania with you.
