Three Most Recommendable Cities To Visit In Spain

Located in the Southwest corner of Europe, the Iberian Peninsula has always been a good choice for holidays. Not only the cost but the heart of the peninsula as well. It is one of the oldest places in Europe so it has a rich history. The most significant names in the culture, art, architecture and literature come exactly from this part of the world. The climate there is the most appropriate for the travelers and the visitors – warm enough, yet cool to enjoy while exploring the new places. Not to mention the local food and drinks. Hardly came anyone who left the country with a bed...

The mysterious origins of Europe’s oldest language

From my car window, I watched Spain transform. From Madrid in the country’s centre to the coastal north, empty land and grazing cows turned to misty green mountains and a shimmering harbour full of boats. I had driven north before, but this was the first time I’d stopped in Getaria, a medieval fishing village with beaches, vineyards and the 15th-Century baptismal church of native son Juan Sebastian Elcano, the first person to sail around the world.  In the early afternoon, on a narrow street, hot smoke rose from seabream sizzling on an outdoor charcoal grill. Two men...

Why Switzerland never takes sides

I was sitting in a grotto in southern Switzerland, savouring a regional version of risotto made with local merlot, surrounded by vibrant green mountains and down the road from a centuries-old stone village that to this day has refused electricity. Both my lunch mates were Swiss, though one spoke Italian and the other preferred German. For my benefit, they switched to English. I smiled contentedly; this kind of multicultural moment had been common in my month of travel across Switzerland, and I figured I had the country’s famed neutrality to thank for it. This incredibly old...

Why Genghis Khan’s tomb can’t be found

This is an outsized land for outsized legends. No roads, no permanent buildings; just unfurling sky, tufted dry grass and streaming wind. We stopped to drink salted milk tea in nomads’ round ger tents and to snap pictures of roaming horses and goats. Sometimes we stopped just for the sake of stopping ‒ Ömnögovi Province, Mongolia, is endless by car. I couldn’t imagine tackling it on a horse. But this is the country of Genghis Khan, the warrior who conquered the world on horseback. His story is full of kidnappings, bloodshed, love and revenge. That’s just...
