Exploring the Holy Land – Israel

So, you’re looking to visit the Holy Land, the birth place of the three-major mono-theistic religions where east meets west. There is so much culture and history packed into this country that it truly does offer something for everyone. Tel Aviv is renowned for having the highest concentration of Bauhaus architecture in the world, coupled with its vibrant nightlife it is in stark contrast with Jerusalem. In medieval times Jerusalem was considered the centre of the Earth, where mankind was birthed and subsequently spread out from that point. What better place to start your trip than in the...

South America’s most underrated city?

With most tourists dashing through Lima on their way to see Peru’s famous Machu Picchu ruins, the country’s capital has long flown under the radar as a destination in its own right. And many aren’t seeing the city at its very best: northern hemisphere travellers typically make the mistake of visiting the city in July or August. “[In those months], the garúa (sea mist) hangs over the city making everything cold, grey and damp,” said Dan Clarke of Real World Holidays, who lived in Lima for a year and travels back often with his company. “By...

The world’s most generous countries

It seems that lending a helping hand to a stranger can be more than just a good deed. In fact, according to research consulting company Gallup, a culture’s willingness to help others is a strong indicator of positive economic factors, including GDP and long-term unemployment, as well as multiple other benefits like encouraging greater overall wellbeing.

The European country that loves being sad

As an American, I’ve been inculcated with the importance of being happy – or at least pretending to be happy – at all costs. It’s an ethos epitomized by the smiley face emoji, which is said to have been invented in the US in 1963, and empty expressions like “have a nice day”.  In Portugal, no one tells you to have a nice day. No one particularly cares if you have a nice day, because chances are they’re not having a nice day either. If you ask a Portuguese person how they’re doing, the most enthusiastic reply you can expect is mais ou...

A 1,000-year-old promise of peace

On a recent Sunday morning, Adeeb Jawad Joudeh Al Husseini was sitting on a bench just inside the sole public entrance to Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The doorway to the sprawling church, founded in the 4th Century, is where the 53-year-old Muslim has spent much of his life. His father, grandfather and dozens of generations of forefathers before them also dedicated most of their lives to sitting on this bench, guarding the church believed to contain the tomb of Jesus, Al Husseini said, pulling a 20cm-long iron key out of his leather jacket’s inner pocket. This key is...
