What it’s like to travel Tunisia off-the-beaten-path

Tunisia Sahara

Last fall, I rented a car and drove from Tunisia’s stunning Mediterranean capital city, Tunis, down to the golden dunes of the Sahara. I passed through a variety of climates and landscapes all while visiting mazes of medieval medinas, preserved colosseums, and ancient mosques.

I was surprised to discover breathtaking scenery, fascinating souks, perfectly preserved Roman ruins, sacred sites, and magnificent views of the Sahara desert.

Best Holiday Places to Travel in 2019

Travel in 2017 was a banner year for best holiday places to travel in a sustainable manner. It begun with  the United Nations backing the movement and many industry professionals pointing their compass towards these ideals, two years later, the momentum is still growing.

Being a sustainable traveler often means embracing your power to support lesser known destinations and their economies. When certain places receive too many visitors, the quality of life for locals (and travelers, for that matter) can start to deteriorate. Popular destinations are primed to be engines of broad economic growth for countries, but as demand rises, an unequal distribution of wealth occurs along with it.

In 2018 travel was all about far-flung, unexpected experiences—and 2019 is no different. But rediscovering the world’s must-sees, delving deeper into already-trendy destinations, and visiting countries worthy (and in need) of tourism are only some of the ways to travel well this year.

Sometimes the new year is not all about novelty, and travel in 2019 will require taking another look at destinations already on your radar. Here, are our best places to travel in 2019 – whether you’re looking to adventure, or indulge in some much needed self-care. Because the world, it seems, is our oyster, and doesn’t it look delicious.

Love brewed in a Kenyan Pot

I Love food and as an avid traveler in my opinion one of the best ways to learn about a local culture is through its food. It gathers people, it lets them enjoy, relax and it tickles ones senses.

I was pleasantly surprised and it changed the image I had of Kenya. Local food was one of the things I wanted to try first.

9 Immersive Travel Rules for 2019 for the True Traveler

Immersive travel is HOT. What is it you might think? Well, it is the act of surrounding yourself with the culture of a place. Sometimes this might mean living with a family and helping out on their farm, or simply sharing a meal with a local. It is a unique experience that more often than not opens doors to a deeper understanding of an unfamiliar place. You’re never going to know a place as intimately as the people living there, but by immersing in the local culture, you can begin to understand it all a little better.

Over the years, travelers are increasingly seeking more of these authentic, immersive experiences in new places.  Joining a monk for a few days, or a 6 month homestay in Cortegana, Huelva or a local farm stay with a group of inspiring travelers. Whatever the destination, every seasoned traveler recognizes that often the most memorable experiences are the encounters with local people and immersing into the local culture. So, if you are done with the standard travel, ticking the box and are up for a new adventure then this article is for you. Here are 9 things you should avoid when you are looking for an enriching, authentic and deeper travel experience.

Lamu Island Kenya: The Ultimate Travel Guide 2018

Lamu travel guide

When thinking of Kenya, the first thing that comes to the mind of many travelers are safaris and maybe the colorful Maasai tribe, but that’s about it. While living here now for a couple of years I can tell you Kenya offers so much more! From the stunning coast with its white sandy beaches, turquoise sea, Arabic towns like Lamu to Africa’s second-highest mountain, Mount Kenya, its abundance of wildlife and national parks to the tropical west part of Kenya. In my opinion Kenya is one of the countries in Africa that’s the ultimate holiday destination that offers all at once and just an 8-hour flight from Europe and soon even a direct flight from New York. In this Lamu travel guide I want to highlight a beautiful island in front of Kenya’s northern coast, Lamu. It is unique in its kind as no cars are allowed and you can still see a lot of Arabic influences.
