ach new day is an opportunity for a new adventure. The more we become aware about ourselves and our surroundings, the closer the point where our everyday lives start to transform from a mechanical daily routine into a force of infinite creative possibilities. A single decision can trigger a 100.000 mile journey !
nriched with many unforgettable moments and invaluable experience, we bid our farewells to the wonderful land of Peru. After several successful Perviam treks (Rajucolta laguna – Churp Laguna – Vinicunca – Machu Picchu) we gained some climbing confidence…and we were steadily heading to a land where some of the most challenging and highest peaks in the Southern Hemisphere were waiting to be conquered and marveled upon – Bolivia!
ver since we were kids we’ve longed to visit one of our planets most wealthiest countries – Peru. Of course, by saying wealthiest we don’t speak in terms of money. According to many Peru is “a country blessed with a unique heritage. Where riches are measured in wellbeing and harmony with nature”. – and after many years of dreaming about this distant and enchanting land, we finally got an opportunity to verify this claim.
fter a 9 hour bus ride and during the early morning hours, we finally arrive to Huaraz. Thinking about Lima and the humid and tropical “vibe” that it had, coming to Huaraz felt as if we went to a completely different world. The fresh mountain air, the impressive peaks of the Andes occasionally appearing and disappearing into the clouds, the lack of oxygen…adventure calls !
hen we got back from the previous trek, we thought that a new one, that had been planned for tomorrow, was just a nice idea. Our heads were still banging from the previous trek and we felt as if our legs were seriously weighted. Upon entering our room, sleep delivers it’s definite knockout…
e could go through various facts and historical details about one distant and ancient place deeply hidden in the mountains that stand high on a continent that seems otherworldly. This kind of info could be quite interesting to some of our readers.
hen we first heard about Vinicunca, more commonly referred to as “The Rainbow Mountain”, and checked it online, we immediately thought to ourselves “Oh boy, 100% Photoshop…”. The mountain looked so unusual and unreal that we had a hard time accepting that it actually existed.
or those new to our blog, we are a huge fans of snowboarding ! Why ? Well, the purpose of this blog is to answer these kind of questions and this article won’t be an exception. That being said, we are quite happy to have an opportunity to share our snowboarding experiences from around the world. And since we are from Serbia, it would be most appropriate to begin this winter story with our snowboarding adventure in Kopaonik.
ave you ever wandered just how deep can a man made pool get ? Well, you may find the answer in Millepini, a thermal resort in northern Italy. This isn’t your ordinary resort. This isn’t your ordinary resort. It is home to a very special pool called the “Y-40”. Number “40” is in it’s name for a good reason and marks the pools maximum depth of 40m, thus making it the deepest pool in the world – according to the Guinness Book of world records.
t a certain point in your life, while swimming in the deep blue sea, you’ve probably thought to yourself “dear god, I hope that there are no sharks here..” Well, we spent our last week in Egypt mostly thinking “dear god, we hope that we will spot a shark here somewhere..”. And we found them !
“Shark diving in Egypt happened to be one of our most amazing experiences so far.”
bout 45min. ride from Playa Del Carmen lies probably the youngest but also one of the most beautiful Maya towns – Tulum. But what really makes this town so special is it’s location. Tulum stands on, almost vertical, cliffs overseeing the mesmerizing turquoise Caribbean Sea. As it directly faces the east it’s obvious why Tulum was once known as the “City of dawn”. The town isn’t so big and you can pass through it in a short amount of time.
bout an hour drive down south from Cancun lies Playa Del Carmen. Playa is quite similar to Cancun along with the intense presence of tourists but this town definitely had a bit more “chilled” vibe to it. The beach in Playa is almost the same as the one in Cancun but the good thing about this beach is that it has much calmer Caribbean sea compared to the cities in northern Quintana Roo.
ur first visit to this incredibly beautiful and mysterious land took place on 2013th – which eventually ended up to be a 45-day long trip. While we had great time on the main land,Thailand islands just blew us away. The Thailand islands could be described as meeting points of natural beauty and inner peace.
