If you’ve traveled for any amount of time in any corner of the world, you will have seen them. Astride their luggage-laden two-wheelers, fully kitted-out in gear and having the time of their lives, motorcycle travelers can be found anywhere there is a road and even on paths that could only jokingly be described as one.
So what’s the big deal about motorcycle touring? Why is it that so many people choose to travel, fully exposed to the elements, on what is statistically one of the most dangerous modes of transportation? And why do they look like they’re having so much fun doing it?!
Well, as someone who belongs to this tribe of nomadic lunatics, I aim to answer all these questions for you. And I wager that I’ll have you considering swinging a leg over a motorcycle before you’re done reading this article.
Are you looking for a place to stay while on holiday but don't want to break the bank? Hotels are expensive and getting even more expensive, but there are many hotel alternatives.
Consider self-catered accommodation that is a great alternative to hotel rooms!
This type of lodging is perfect if you're looking for a more affordable option or if you want more freedom and flexibility while on vacation. With self-catering, you can choose from a variety of rental properties, including treehouse rentals, apartments, log cabins, cottages etc. Plus, you'll have plenty of space to spread out and make yourself at home.
Here is my story about being a volunteer in Guatemala. If you are looking for information on how to volunteer in Guatemala and if it would be worth going to Guatemala at all, I believe you will find my story helpful.
During my trip to Central America, I happened to stumble upon Guatemala and completely fall in love with the country. From Mayan ruins and jungles in the north to beautiful black beaches in the south, and a scattering of volcanoes, mountains and lakes in the middle, Guatemala never falls short, whatever you’re looking for. It has the quaint colonial city Antigua, Central America’s largest market, the majestic Mayan capital, Tikal, and many hidden gems along the way, too. You could spend a lifetime here and not get bored.
Once a youth subculture, now it's a travel trend that is gaining momentum around the world. It's the industrial tourism.
For some, an abandoned factory is an occasion to rebuke the local government in ruins and pass by. Still, for some, such a building arouses a research interest and the discoverer's spirit.
But industrial tourism is not only about ruins and frozen construction sites. These are also former factories and plants that were given a second life: now they became home to the galleries, public organizations, cafes, restaurants, and their walls tell visitors a unique story.
What are the types of industrial tourism? What is the difference between industrial and post-industrial tourism? Who are industrial tourists? Maybe you are
also an industrial tourist, but still do not know about it? Find out in this blog post.
We all know or experienced the various forms of tourism: excursions, organized tours, independent travel... But what if we could learn
about a new culture, the worldview of people from distant countries, their traditions, and culinary heritage through 'reverse traveling’?
Alternative traveling is an emerging trend that develops as a sort of anti-tourism or "different" tourism - call it as you like. The driver behind this concept is to find an alternative to the mass tourism and to show the ways (or to create new ways) for meaningful traveling.
If an "all inclusive" package tour to a popular beach destination may "recharge your batteries," it may not recharge your soul.
Here are some ideas if you are in search of transformational travel and life-changing travel experiences.
