Everything starts very early. The moon is on the sky shaped in the same way as the Turkish flag. Flying with balloon is magic, quiet and you feel peace while the day starts.
It was a cold morning in the middle of the Turkish peninsula, in Göreme, the heart of Cappadocia, the land made of sculptures and where the people lives underground. One of the typical and unforgettable activities that everyone must do in Capadoccia is a Balloon flight.
Although Japan might be one of the most interesting and culturally rich countries in the world, most travelers use to have a limited time to visit it. Thus, the aim of this post is to share the route that we completed when we discovered Japan in 2015. We have written a lot about this beautiful country in previous posts, but we wanted to give you a full idea of the kind of trip that we did and to prove that some of the main hotspots of the country can be seen in less than two weeks.
As we already explained in this post, when flying from Barcelona to Tokyo we did a stopover in Moscow that gave us some time to visit the city and the same happened in our trip back home. This means that we had less time for Japan due to the lenght of our stopovers. Nevertheless, in 11 days and thanks to the wonderful Japan Rail (JR) Pass we left Japan with a good number of must-see places in our bags.
Some people have dark skin, others don’t, some have long legs, others don’t, some are very strong, others don’t, … During millennia humanity got adapted to the environment by different and slowly and successful mutations in our DNA. Through genetic heritage we have received them generating more than 7.000.000.000 unique combinations of human beings in planet Earth. There is no 2 identical combinations but there are millions of people sharing some gens. This is what happens with DRD4-7R.
Why have some people a gen that whispers them inside their head: “travel, travel, travel…”? It is not a secret that this is also something that happens to both of us. The answer is behind the concept “Survival”.
When we travel we love visiting big metropolis, but we love even more the quietness and authenticity of the rural villages that can be found in the middle of nowhere. By driving far from the crowds we have discovered amazing towns in our old continent.
It has been a long time thinking about writing a post on our 5 favourite villages in Europe to spread the word about them. Of course they are our own selection among all the villages that we’ve visited together to date, but there are still plenty of villages awaiting for us to visit them! The order in this post is merely chronological, since we wouldn’t be able to choose among all those little wonders 🙂
Peníscola is a medieval town built on a rock hill between two beaches in the north of Castelló province in Spain. Birthplace of a pope and shooting location for Game of Thrones, Peníscola mixes a medieval castle with white painted houses and the Mediterranean sea as background landscape.
