Discover Limassol, A Gem on the Mediterranean Coast

Discover Limassol, A Gem on the Mediterranean Coast

Limassol is the second largest city on the island of Cyprus. Stretching along the Mediterranean coast in southeastern Europe, it offers a wide range of activities and landmarks to visit. Limassol is a city on a mission. It has been one of the busiest port cities in the Mediterranean for quite a few centuries but it hasn’t always been a top-of-mind- vacation destination. This is rapidly changing of course, thanks to the dedicated effort of local authorities, citizens and the business community. A large-scale urban remodeling programme has endowed the city with a brand new marina and a beautiful beachfront park. These attractions complement the Old Port and the Medieval Castle, forming a metropolitan area worth exploring and photo shooting

10 Great Experiences You Can Only Have in Connecticut

10 Great Experiences You Can Only Have in Connecticut

During a tech conference, I was able to stay at the Crowne Plaza in Stamford, Connecticut for the weekend. I was expecting a pretty normal conference: most of my time spent at the event, without a lot of chances to get out of the venue and my hotel and enjoy the rest of my time in Stamford. The tourism opportunities, however, surprised me. As it turns out, there are a number of experiences you can only have in Connecticut. Here are our favorites:

Port Elizabeth, Unknown Jewel of the Sunshine Coast, South Africa

Port Elizabeth, Unknown Jewel of the Sunshine Coast, South Africa

Port Elizabeth: The Eastern Cape’s Unknown Jewel

Port Elizabeth on the Sunshine Coast of South Africa is often overshadowed by its far more popular sister, Cape Town. Called both the Friendly City and the Windy City, a lot of Port Elizabeth’s best attractions make it onto ‘Top 10’ lists, but the truly amazing gems are relatively well guarded secrets that most tourists stumble across by accident. And when a friend recently mentioned that they were planning a vacation there, I started browsing through old photos and made a list of my personal ‘Port Elizabeth Must Do’s’ which I’ll be sharing with you all.

My Journey to Beautiful Pho Quoc Island, Vietnam

My Journey to Beautiful Pho Quoc Island, Vietnam

Before I journeyed to Vietnam, the only places was familiar with here were Ho Chi Minh city and Hanoi. I didn’t know that the country boasts lots of wonderful and really charming places. Being the ‘allergic-to-crowded-places’ person that I am, I did some research and looked for places in Vietnam that were not so crowded and not many tourists flock to. And lo and behold, Phu Quoc is one of the names that popped in the list.

An Unforgettable Journey – Great Barrier Reef Trip Report

An Unforgettable Journey – Great Barrier Reef Trip Report

When I decided to visit the Great Barrier Reef the last summer, I had a lot of expectations and, believe it or not, during a week-long stay they all were met and I enjoyed it even more that I could have imagined. It was a rather good idea that I spent weeks prior to the big trip reading Australia Top 10 Lists online, charting out my stay. A lifetime would not be enough to see and do all you want to in the Great Barrier Reef area – there are approx 2,900 reefs and 900 islands, so you can only see a few on your brief holiday

Discovering New Hidden Gems in Thailand – A Trip Report

Discovering New Hidden Gems in Thailand – A Trip Report

One of the best things I love about travelling is getting the chance to learn more about a new culture. That’s how I felt when my partner and I visited Thailand for the second time. As a Eurasian (I’m half British and half Chinese), I was intrigued by the architecture and culture and knew we had to visit again. Having the opportunity to go back and really get under the skin of the country was a no-brainer and it was surprising the number of things we discovered beyond the main visitor attractions.
