Activities you can enjoy while being in Uganda

Nothing can compare to traveling to Africa for the very first time. It’s breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and, last but not least, revitalizing. If you’re heading to the land of Sahara, then make sure not to miss Uganda. Uganda is the most overlooked country in the East African region. It’s a shame taking into consideration that it’s the pearl of Africa. Uganda is better than Kenya, Tanzania, or Rwanda. What makes Uganda so special, anyway? This is a question that everyone is asking. Well, people are very friendly and the landscape is dominated by green emerald. If you’re traveling to...

Užupis: A tiny republic of free spirits

Residents say that if you stare into the eyes of the Užupis Mermaid as you cross the bridge into the tiny, self-declared Republic of Užupis from the surrounding Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, you’ll never want to leave. Created in 2002 by sculptor Romas Vilčiauskas, the bronze figure welcomes visitors to the tiny republic – and locals claim that it is she who lures them here from all over the globe.

The following five places, including three beautiful cities and two natural wonders, may be ones you have not yet considered. Matera in Italy Matera in Italy is one of the oldest living cities in the world.

The US city that taught children to laugh

Consider Dr Seuss. The writer and illustrator behind the most absurd books in the library, whose wordplay and neatly illustrated doodles are forever alive in the imagination of children. In Seuss’ universe, full of impossible creatures, eye-popping characters and memorable puns, cats wear red-and-white floppy hats, eggs have green yolks and foxes sport socks. Seuss’ tools were the building blocks of the alphabet, his lyricism the result of years daydreaming at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and working as an advertising illustrator in New York. There’s as much of...

The last lighthouse keeper of Capri

Basking in the Bay of Naples, Capri is Italy at its most dazzling. Whitewashed villas burst with purple bougainvillea, yachts putter around the island’s glimmering grottoes and what was once an idyllic home of fishermen is now an exclusive glitterati haunt. A machine can power a light, but it can’t watch the sea But every evening in a modest apartment on the island’s remote south-western tip, a 64-year-old sailor named Carlo D’Oriano slowly climbs 136 steps up a spiral staircase to the lonely lookout tower of the Punta Carena lighthouse and peers through a pair of...

Japan’s special take on a packed lunch

As I made my way through the meandering hallways of Tokyo Station, I felt like a pilgrim making a monumental journey, before my actual trip. I was headed to the mecca of ekiben – beloved boxed meals created specifically for long train journeys. Like the crowds bustling around me, I had a train to catch, and my last order of business was to find myself some lunch for the ride. Ekiben (駅弁), an abbreviation of eki (station) and ben (bento), is a prized, and some would say essential, element of long-distance train travel in Japan. While eating in a local commuter train is frowned upon,...

Armenia’s ancient city on the brink of change

Though a small country of just three million people, Armenia made global waves last spring with its Velvet Revolution – a months-long peaceful protest movement that eventually resulted in the resignation of the long-standing prime minister Serzh Sargsyan and election of Nikol Pashinyan, a former journalist who led the protests with his passionate speeches and civil disobedience campaign. Armenia is often overlooked but I think it is now the country’s time to shine The peaceful transition of power has already begun to transform the nation’s capital, Yerevan, as...
