Europe is full of terrific towns and city walking experiences that we don’t get in the Americas or many other parts of the world. Our around the world trip had us touching down in Warsaw, Poland for several days, allowing us to take in the streets of Warsaw, Poland and it’s historic Old Town. Our walking experience had us wandering to no particular destination at all, which is sometimes a travel feature… Read More

A visit to Bangkok, Thailand is such a bizarre collision of traditional history, new school contemporary, and plain outrageous odd ball activities and behaviours. A visit here can consist of historic sights, temples or modern day debauchery. I don’t think that there are many cities on the globe that can offer this amount of diversity in any modern day adult sightseeing visit. These are the sights that we saw in our thirty… Read More

The Great Wall of China is a must see on any international travellers list of sights to see. Our visit today took us to the less visited portion of the wall at Miytanyu.
