The Natural and Relaxing Side to Ibiza (Travel Guide!)

It remains to be seen if and how the pandemic will affect Ibiza’s upcoming summer clubbing season which runs from roughly the end of May through early October. Most people think of packed nightclubs and giant beach crowds when they think of Ibiza, which doesn’t exactly adhere to the whole social distancing concept.

Thankfully, Ibiza is much more than parties and music. There’s a natural and relaxing side to the island which may now be just what travelers need for planning a stay in Ibiza.

Ibiza is home to many protected natural areas including natural parks like Ses Salines and Amunts as well as the Ses Feixes Wetlands which attracts a great deal of birdlife. There are secret coves to explore, deserted beaches to seek out, and hiking trails to help you get off the beaten trail.

Sections of the island are also historically significant such as the Renaissance walls of Ibiza City’s Old Town and the remnants of early Phoenician settlements. Parts of Ibiza are actually recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites because of their significance.

Experience the Ibiza you may not have known as I introduce you to some of the island’s relaxing natural locations where you’ll be far removed from the pulsating beats puts out by DJs which will allow you to actually tune in to your own heartbeat.

Dear Travelers to Iceland: Please Don’t Visit Until You’ve Understood These 8 Things

In recent years, rumors have begun to spread about the existence of a small Nordic island nation in the North Atlantic Ocean; an island defined by dramatic landscapes, with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, lava fields, and elves. Yes, elves.

Rumors of this magical place are spreading like wildfire, and travelers have started arriving from all over the land. Though there is a delicate balance in maintaining the untouched and wild feeling of Iceland’s unique landscapes while making them accessible to tourists. Lava fields, volcanoes and thundering waterfalls might look super tough, but in fact they are very vulnerable.

Before tourists started arriving in mass, most Icelandic attractions had no need for infrastructure like car parks or ranger stations. So it’s extremely important that we are aware of our impact as travelers. As such, we have composed a letter to all those who are Iceland bound.

How to Get From Mexico City to Oaxaca

How to Get From Mexico City to Oaxaca

Many travelers to Mexico start out in the country’s capital Mexico City. The city’s historic center is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers up a number of major attractions, and makes a great base for exploring important sites around Central Mexico.

But not too far from Mexico City is another one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations: Oaxaca City.

Also known as Oaxaca de Juárez, Oaxaca City is located in the state of Oaxaca in central southern Mexico. The region is home to lesser known indigenous pre-Columbian civilizations like the Zapotec and Mixtec, and, much like historic Mexico City, is recognized by UNESCO and has become known as the culinary capital of the country.

Oaxaca City may only be five-hour-drive or hour flight from Mexico City, but it’s a world away in terms of culture and feel. While Mexico City is packed with nearly nine million residents, Oaxaca City’s population only numbers around 300,000.

Explore archeological sites like Monte Albán, natural wonders like Hierve el Agua, and many beautiful colonial-era buildings. Add to this markets filled with beautiful handicrafts and popular annual festivals such as Day of the Dead and the indigenous cultural event known as Guelaguetza.

Read on to discover how easy it is to get to Oaxaca from Mexico City and learn more reasons why you should include this fascinating region to your next Mexican itinerary.

Tips for Experiencing Tanzania on a Student Budget

Tanzania is a spectacular country in East Africa, which fits every stereotype of the romantic image of the continent; from the dramatic wildebeest migration through the famous Serengeti, to the beaches of the Zanzibar Archipelago, and Mt Kilimanjaro.

A Craft Whisky Distillery in an 1840’s Coaching Inn: Touring Old Kempton Distillery Tasmania

A Craft Whisky Distillery in an 1840’s Coaching Inn: Touring Old Kempton Distillery Tasmania

Tasmania is world famous for its pure air, clean water, and crisp climate. And if you landed here without context, to our ‘lush crisp landscape battered by chilly seas’, pulled up to an imposing 19th century Coaching Inn, and were handed a single malt whisky, we’d forgive you for drawing parallels to Scotland.

After-all, you need a very stable, cool climate to brew the perfect malt whisky (not even modern climate controlled warehouses are as good as brewing in the perfect natural climate), and some of the purest air and water in the world.

Which is why Scottish Whisky has become so famous.

While both superb locations for making whisky, the difference of Scotland and Tasmania is that the distilling of spirits was outlawed here from 1838 to 1991. Though since the law was overturned Tasmania has experienced a craft malt Whisky revival, and the artisanal Whisky movement has earned the reputation of ‘Scotland Down Under’.

150 years was a long time for Tasmanians to wait between drinks, but the State’s pure ingredients and passionate distillers have more than made up for it since.

And that 19th century Coaching Inn? It exists! It sits at 26 Main St Kempton. 40 minutes from Hobart, the Coaching Inn is now a cellar door, with a distillery you can tour in the convict brick stables.
