Let’s be honest: not many tourists visit Johannesburg just “per se”. This vibrant South African city has had a very bad reputation being one of the world’s most dangerous cities. So, if you are searching for things to do in Johannesburg, you are probably trying to kill time on the way to Kruger national park or some other game reserve. Meanwhile you are wondering whether it is safe to spend the night in Johannesburg and to walk around the city. In this post you will find 5 things to do in Johannesburg in 48 hours, as well as some tips that will help you decide if spending some time in the largest city in South Africa is a good idea […]
Be honest, how many of you have heard of the Grand Teton National Park? I haven’t. At least not until I started planning our October trip to the US. While searching for a place to stay near Yellowstone, I “discovered” there was another but smaller park very close by. Since it was literally on the way from Jackson Hole Airport to Yellowstone, I browsed briefly through the photos and I was instantly hooked. When I saw those yaw-dropping photos of skyscraping mountain peaks I knew we had to spend at least one day in Grand Teton. Unfortunately, that was all we could afford due to our busy schedule. If you also have limited time to explore or you are just […]
Let’s skip the intro this time and get straight to the point: if you are anywhere near Utah, you have to visit Arches National Park. Hell, even if you are not anywhere near Utah, you should put Arches to your bucket list. It is small enough to do it in one day, it is practically on the way to other major Utah and Arizona attractions, it is fun, unique and simply beautiful. Here are some tips to visit Arches National Park hassle free.
Whether you are traveling from Utah or Arizona to Nevada, or you’re just sick of gambling in Vegas, you should put a trip to Valley of Fire on your “to do” list. I have done both – I’ve seen all major national parks in this area, and I have traveled to Vegas 5 years in a row due to an exhibition (comes with my job), and I can tell you that visiting Valley of Fire is something you will not regret. Even though the photos might seem similar to the ones from Red Rock Canyon (another good option for escaping Vegas), Arches or even Zion national park, trust me, Valley of Fire has its own charm and soul. In this […]
I have visited Las Vegas several times, mostly for business and shopping. This time, during our last road trip in October, we had an extra day left before flying back home so we decided to spend the afternoon in Red Rock Canyon. After having seen some of the greatest wonders of nature on our trip, we were a bit skeptical about visiting “just a random canyon” but we really needed a break from the Strip. And we were more than pleasantly surprised.
I am sure you have all heard about the country that lies in the central Europe, nestled between Adriatic Sea, Dinaric Alps and Pannonian Basin. Most of people want to visit Croatia during summer for the obvious reasons. There are not a lot of countries in the world where you can choose between hundreds of islands (Hvar, Brac, Korcula being amongst most popular) or so-called mainland rivieras with beautiful old towns like Dubrovnik or Split. I have visited most of Croatian rivieras (in fact, I visit Opatija almost every month), and I can easily say that Makarska is one of the most beautiful ones in the Adriatic region. Unfortunately, millions of tourists also know this, so prepare to get crowded. […]
When the time finally arrives to head to a destination that you’ve been excited for “since forever” you want to make the most of it. You’ve booked your time off from the office, and set your our of office reply to ” currently unavailable” mode. Your camera is ready for your adventures and enormous pile of books is packed for the evenings and relaxation. Your hotel/apartment is booked, you’re going to (or have already) hire a car from Burswood Rentals, and you can’t wait to start sightseeing. So, you are heading to Perth and your vacation is already going to be fantastic – but how do you upgrade it?
