Bloggers usually provide personal accounts of their experiences through words. Most travel bloggers usually allow exceptionally beautiful photographs to talk for them instead. Such is the wonderful offering of travel photo blogs.
It is easy to understand why they opt to do this. Describing a place can be very difficult to do purely in words. A photograph can speak a thousand words by itself , being able to describe without exhausting words in the dictionary but with a single or a number of carefully chosen shots that show the place in its best angle. It is a story provided by a sequence of photographs.
A travel photo blog can take readers to places which may not be possible to reach physically at the time of reading. Others use it to visualize planned trips to the place, using the presented travel post as …
Halal is an Arabic term which pertains to objects or actions which are permissible to use or take part of according to Islamic Law. The term also refers to food that Muslims can eat. Not many people are familiar with this and Muslim culture in general unless they share the same religion or have experienced life in Muslim countries.
The numbers of Halal conscious consumers are rapidly increasing which is why many of them look for Halal friendly holidays which they can enjoy. Trips like these make them feel at ease, because they do not have to worry about having to deal with situations which are not in line with their faith. Halal travel destinations are not just exclusive to OIC countries. Some places on the list are not members, but they do have a large population of Muslims, so …
I don’t think I am going to die soon. Well, I certainly hope not. I have places to go, things to do. I did run across an article at the Huffington Post about dream destinations. It is not a new idea – people write all sorts of lists about things they want to do and places they want to go to before they die. I thought I’d have mine in black and white as well. So here goes.
1. Paris – I have always wanted to go to France. My fascination with this country began in grade school when I won a book titled “Let’s Travel to France” in a raffle draw. The rest, as they say, is history.
2. Israel – This is another place that was very much part of my childhood. Bible …
Little Green Street isn’t in the center of London, but maybe that’s why it survived so long — it’s one of only a few intact Georgian streets left in the whole metropolis. These two-story brick houses may have survived the Blitz in World War II, but the inexorable march of gentrification is another thing altogether.
London is a premiere tourist destination as a whole but so is this little area within the city. Indeed, with development going the way it is, we might not get to see Little Green Street in its original form pretty soon.

One of the best things about calling cards are the various bonus deals you get on them, which typically let you manage your phone-related expenses with an even finer degree of control than usual. This is an invaluable tool to every regular traveler, as it allows them to easily remain in touch with everyone they need to without having to shell out a whole lot of money for that purpose. However, many people have challenged the legitimacy of some of these calling card deals lately – in some cases, they just sound too good to be true. And to be realistic, in some cases it actually is. So where do you draw the line and how do you distinguish between a scam and legitimate, quality cards?
The first thing to be wary of are free calling deals – sure, it sounds good and attractive, but …
When you’re traveling to India, there are the usual things to take into consideration – where you’ll be staying, where you can get something good to eat, as well as where to take off some of the stress and relax – and then there are some finer details you’ll have to figure out in order to ensure that your trip would be as productive and convenient as possible. Staying connected is always important, and a good deal on a calling card can help you keep in touch with your friends and relatives while you’re exploring India!
If you’ve got a good calling card, your friends would be able to call India at some extremely good rates (judging from what’s been populating the market lately), allowing you to remain in contact with them. It works both ways – the proper deal on a calling card will …
Going some where for a vacation and debating on whether to take a sunscreen lotion or a tanning lotion? If you are, maybe you can get something out of this post. One of my rules when traveling is to always bring sun screen. Applying sunscreen is very important to keep your skin healthy by providing protection from the sun. In fact, you should be using sunscreen not just on vacations, but you should be using it every day!
That means that you can leave the tanning lotion behind, right? Not necessarily. Obviously, when you go on a vacation the days you spend there are special. You want to get something out of it, and one of those things, if you are headed to a sunny place, is a nice good tan. True sunscreen will keep you healthy, but it is understandable that you …
If you’ve chosen Peru to visit for your next holiday, you definitely have some taste in traveling – Peru has been a very popular tourist location for quite a while, and having so much to offer to its visitors, many of them keep coming back for more each year. If you’re visiting Peru, we surely don’t have to start listing the large number of places you can go to and things you can see – if you’ve planned your trip well enough, this shouldn’t be necessary as you’re probably already neck-deep in your list for sightseeing.
If you’re looking to grab something to eat while in Peru though, this can be somewhat tricky depending on your particular location. Some towns have very good places for eating all around, while in other towns you’ll have to look around for quite a bit before you’ve been able …
Lima – Peru’s capital and also its largest city – is quite the popular tourist location. People come to visit it all around the year, and the city is able to offer a wide variety of things to do all the time, regardless of when you chose to make your trip. If you’re going to be staying for a while, you’ve got a large selection of museums and events to explore, so you should by no means feel bored at any point of your trip.
One of the things that’s important to arrange properly in any tourist trip is the food – it’s a factor many people take for granted, only to find themselves puzzled in trying to find a good place to grab a snack while they’re exploring the location they’re at. A short walk around the busier downtown areas should show you a large …
Chile is a popular tourist destination, especially among those who enjoy tasty treats and generally exploring the cuisines of the various places they go to. If you’re visiting Chile, you should definitely set aside some time to indulge in the nation’s quite broad selection of foods and treats – and this is especially valid for those of you who enjoy spicier foods, as Chile is one of the most popular sources of such food in the world!
If you want to try out some of the more traditional meals, stay away from the central coast – this area is primarily populated by foreigners and thus offers mostly foreign cuisine and not so many traditional local meals. Still, the selection here can be quite tasty regardless, so you can still try them out a bit.
If you want to try out some of Chile’s traditional hot soups, …
