The typical visitor to Europe sees cities such as Paris, London, and Vienna, but this continent also offers a wealth of destinations that are much quirkier. From a museum about a non-existent corporation to a hidden underground submarine base, Europe is full of fascinating surprises, but only for those who understand that sometimes, a tourist needs to stray far from the beaten path.
Located on the tip of the Crimean Peninsula, this port city on the Black Sea used to be situated inside the USSR. What makes it truly quirky, however, is a facility that was once one of the region’s most deeply held secrets: a Soviet nuclear submarine base. The underground base is missing all the submarines these days, but because the facility was designed to withstand a direct hit by an atomic bomb, its infrastructure remains intact. The public is now welcome to enter and to explore the tunnels and submarine bays.
This guest post is from Joe Schembri who has enjoyed the Florida lifestyle since 1990. He’s a huge fan of kayaking, spending time at the beach and traveling around the state. All photos are his own.
Florida has so much to offer any traveler, from families looking for fun, couples looking for romance and friends looking for adventure. There is so much to see and do that every moment of your Florida vacation will be packed to the brim. The reasons to come to the Sunshine State are endless, but here are some of the things on the top of the list.
Florida is known for its wonderful climate. People from up north flock to Florida every winter to luxuriate in the warm weather. When others are shoveling snow off of their driveways, Floridians are still able to hit the beach for tanning, relaxing and even kayaking. Here is a list of many areas around the state your family can enjoy a day of kayaking.
Florida is not just lovely in the wintertime. The entire year is bathed in sunshine, which makes it easy to enjoy all of the fun that your trip has to offer. Whether you are heading to the beach or hitting up some theme parks, the warm weather will follow you all over the state.
Spending time on the water can be soothing or thrilling. In Florida, you’re never far from the shore. Between the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean or the thousands of lakes throughout the state, a trip to Florida allows you to spend as much time as you’d like on the water.
The different bodies of water each offer their own form of entertainment. You can take a glass-bottomed boat through the swampy waters of the Everglades. You can sail above the Gulf of Mexico in a parasail or catch a few waves in the Atlantic Ocean. If getting into the water isn’t your thing, sitting on the shore watching the sun glint off of the waves is a fantastic way to pass a day.
One of our primary motivations to travel is the chance to witness different cultures. If you’re more of a thrifty kind of traveler, you may delight in the chance to kill two birds with one stone. You don’t have to go to China to experience Chinese culture. Just follow our guide to the best Chinatowns around the world.

Native American History
Thousands of years before Juan Ponce de Leon set foot in Florida, Native American cultures flourished throughout the United States. According to anthropologists, America’s original inhabitants crossed an isthmus that once connected Russia and the U.S. over 12,000 years ago.
The settlers migrated from Eurasia and arrived in the U.S. in three migratory waves. As they dispersed across the land, Native Americans modified their clothing, diets and lodgings in response to the environment that they encountered. The U.S. has 564 Native American tribes with distinct cultures and languages. There are several popular Native American cultural attractions in the U.S. Many locations offer hiking, fishing, horseback riding and other outdoor activities.
You probably all know this feeling. Sometimes you’re just done with daily life; the commute, the nine to five, family, social life…it gets too much and all you want to do is get away from it. Good thing we are here to help! Sit back, take it easy and have a look at some of the best places to escape the modern world.
The Navimag Ferry, Patagonia, Chile
If you could do with some wild water adventure, hop on the ferry that takes you from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales. This is a rough trip through Northern Patagonia and its fjords, desolate channels and uninhabited islands, known as one of the wettest and most isolated areas in the world. No risk of running into the in-laws here.
London is a great place to visit for everyone; young and old, couples, families, friends… The city is full of (free!) museums, parks and gardens, beautiful sights and great places to eat.

WARNING: this blog-post is not for our vegetarian audience!
Sorry, but that warning was really needed since today we are gonna talk about one of the most amazing, famous and challenging dishes you can have in Italy: the “bistecca alla Fiorentina” or, if you prefer, “beefsteak Florentine style”!
For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, the Fiorentina is one of the main dishes of the Tuscan kitchen and it consists of a T-bone steak seasoned with salt (sometimes also with black pepper), grilled over a wood or charcoal fire and served with just a little bit of olive oil on top. Doesn’t look so unique, does it? Indeed the uniqueness of the Fiorentina is the cut: 1/1,5 kg, 3 fingers thick, and how the meat is served: invariably very rare, just 3-5 minutes grilling per side and 5-7 minutes vertically standing on its bone so as to make the blood pour out.
Erupting in Santorini or Peaking in the Peaks: which of these incredible destinations is on YOUR bucket list?
1. Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu probably is the most familiar icon of the Inca world. The site is situated on a mountain ridge, 2,430 metres above sea level. The ‘City of the Incas’ is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

New York is a mesmerising city offering many a dream-come-true moment and countless once in a life time experiences. Like walking onto the set of your favourite Hollywood blockbuster, the visions before me as I exited the subway into Times Square seemed unimaginable, and on first glance I was paralysed. Neck craned, mouth open, I had arrived and this was certainly going to be a trip to remember!
