There were good reasons for me to decide to visit the perfect adventure holidays country Oman as it combines what I love to do most. I planned, therefore, a road trip to the Northern part of Oman, camping in the Omani desert and hiking in Oman fabulous high-peak mountains. Oman is a country bordered by the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman. On one hand, it is modern and very developed, yet its people respect and follow the traditions of their forefathers.

Koh Phayam & Koh Chang Ranong - the perfect off-the-beat islands in Thailand

My first visit to Thailand lasts back to 30 years ago when Phuket was a small town and on the beaches where a few bungalows - it was then a fantastic place of raw natural beauty. Times changed, and it becomes harder to find idyllic territories without the crowds. When researching last winter for off-the-beaten-path relaxing islands in the Land of Smile I came across Koh Phayam and the neighboring Koh Chang Ranong. We decided spontaneously to explore them as long as they are still quiet!

Hiking in Gavdos Island

Romantically under-developed Gavdos may be one of the best Greek Islands for those looking to slow down and enjoy the simpler things, along with the sun and the sea. It’s like going back in time: a few villages, pristine beaches and a handful of taverns and bars. 40 km off the more well-known Crete, Gavdos is the most southern island in Greece. Accessible by ferry only a couple of times per week from Paleochora and Hora Sfakian, the remote island has about 60 permanent residents year round and raises the number to a few thousand during the summer. Little traffic on the few roads and well-marked hiking trails make Gavdos also a favorite destination for hikers in spring and autumn.
