Weed in Amsterdam: What’s Unity cup and how do coffee shops operate

It’s all Johnny Petram’s fault! Had he not found a loophole in the Dutch law and opened the first coffee shop in the sixties, people would not be having a hard time facing up to the fact that his legendary shop, Mellow Yellow, is now closed. They got the better of him. After fifty years of running ...

Netherlands vs North sea: Following the footsteps of Delta works

Netherlands is the only country in the world in which it isn't really favorable to say something to someone like: "You look like you've been thrown out by a flood". Not even as a joke. They are deeply traumatized by this topic. They even have a bunch of monuments on the topic of man and water, the ...

Cebu as an alternative for Boracay and Palawan

Cebu is less known. Far less than the islands of Boracay and Palawan when you decide to roll up your sleeves and start browsing the net. It’s also not so touristic developed.

A short guide for swimming with Whale sharks in Oslob

5 awesome ways to experience Košutnjak. The most beautiful forest in Belgrade

Košutnjak is definitely something to be proud of, if you live in the remote areas of the city such as Filmski Grad, Vidikovac or Rakovica. You’re not near the centre of  Belgrade, but you have a forest to die for 200 metres away. And it’s really the case. I don’t know what’s in front of your ...

How to get to the Arctic: Camp Alta as backpackers hidden gem

The Arctic is not that far away, after all. When we say the Arctic, we don’t have in mind Svalbard where you know for sure that there is nothing north from you apart from weather stations and an occasional Russian icebreaker, but a sufficiently small ice-bound settlement in the middle of wilderness ...

Arctic experience: 8 adventures you simply shouldn’t miss

Singapore. Is there anything cheap?

Singapore is an absolute marvel! The first impression, of course, is the humidity. Insufferable humidity at that. Dragging those suitcases behind us while panting for breath felt as if we were lugging a frigging Lada Niva! While we were waiting at the metro station, we were literally inundated with ...
