Best of Scotland

Scotland has become a popular tourist destination in the past year, partly thanks to crowning it the most beautiful country. However, when people travel to Scotland, most recommendations are to head to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Skye and Glen Coe, all of which are overcrowded with tourists (and rightfully so). This means a lot of people are missing out a lot of overlooked destinations. Guest author Scotland has been travelling around Scotland for over 26 years, first as a kid with his parents touring in a caravan, then as an adult with an obsession for climbing Scotland's Munros.

So how many degrees do you have in Europe right now? Don't you also feel like jumping to the blue eye of underwater cenote?Cenotes are a natural sinkholes in the limestone, characteristic for all the Yucatan Peninsula. Lovely places of a fresh, blue water, sometimes totally under the ground, sometimes partly open. Cenote water is often very clear, as the water comes from rain water infiltrating slowly through the ground. Perfect place for a fast refreshment in between ruins and monkeys.Yucatan has 2400 registered cenotes but it's said there could be even 6000. Cosy cave with a water, just 4 of us, stalactites and stalagmites, a bit of sunbeams from up. Beautiful!No questions that cenotes played an important role in Maya rites (as gates to the afterlife).

EXPLORING CLASSIC VIENNA

As I recall the moment I stepped into the Schönbrunn Palace in the Imperial City of Vienna, I remember the feeling of grandeur that swept over me. Although I had seen the Palace a few times, I had never actually got the opportunity to enter the rooms and see for myself how the Habsburg Royals lived until about 200 years ago. Majestic rooms, exquisite chandeliers, valuable art - all as breathtaking as expected and more. But what intrigued me the most and has kept me engrossed in thoughts all these days are the stories. Stories behind the fancy rooms and furniture, the books and the jewels,... Read moreEXPLORING CLASSIC VIENNA

Waterfall before the sunset

The Chilasco falls are certainly Guatemalans must-see but we underestimated the way and after hours of running in the mud we managed to see the falls see only from the distance. But was still worth it and better than staying for a night in the jungle!There are many undiscovered places in the region Baja Verapaz in Guatemala and hardly any guidebooks talk about the "Salto de Chilasco". Those who do talk - tell that it is the highest waterfall in the whole Central America. In fact even Thousand Foot Falls in Belize is for sure much taller but still 133 meters of water in Guatemala make an impression.Especially if getting there took a lot of our time, energy and sweat. It is just few kilometers to walk from the village but what a kilometers! Very steep path, with mud until the knees, where... Read moreWaterfall before the sunset
