Ala Kul Lake – trekking plan with MAPS!

Ala-Kol Lake – trekking plan*  Turquoise lake located 3530 m above the sea level, quite popular destination for people loving trekking, adrenaline and beauty of wild nature surrounding. Due to high lake elevation and not so easy accessibility lake can be admired only by patient and strong tourists, whom tiredness is like piece of cake. Whatever the pain in the muscles would be… final breathtaking, little bit lunar landscape is worth every single drop of sweat you had to squeeze from yourself. There is no possibility to make this trip easier by renting jeep with driver. You must use your own legs… no other option, sorry Lake is not so...

How to reach Aral Sea? 3 ways how to do it!

Even though we already have a post about the Aral Sea, it occurred to us that we might sum up our journey once again in terms of costs and potential ways of getting there, so that everyone could make up his mind whether the game is worth the candle. Once you get to Nukus, a city located in the northeast of Uzbekistan, you’ll most probably decide (like us) that, apart from the Savitsky Museum of Art, the city hasn’t got much to offer. In that moment an idea to catch the escaping shore of the Aral Sea will dawn on you. Taking into account the fact that in a dozen years or maybe several decades such a trip may not be possible...

Ramadan? Don’t panic!

Wise statistics show that Muslims represent almost 20% of the population of the world. Since Ramadan, that is, the holy month of fast, almost without fail falls during our “Western” holiday season, there is a good chance that one day you will fall into the very middle of it during your trip. We have our own memories from travels we embarked on in that period to Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey or the Indian Kashmir, but in these places the tourists are exempt from the rules applicable during the “holy month”, and even the locals themselves sometimes make nothing of these restrictions. So it doesn’t make much...

Camping in Tuscany

  We spent around a fortnight travelling around the beautiful Tuscany. During that time we slept only on campsites and it was like hitting the bull’s eye. All campsites in Tuscany are relatively similar as far as prices are concerned, which are, unfortunately, quite expensive during the...

Ala Archa Trekking

Trekking to the Peak Uchitel, that is … on our way to a four-thousander (4527 MAMSL)* We noticed that the post describing our several-days-long trek to Ala-Kol Lake in Kyrgyzstan is still enjoying considerable popularity so… it’s time for a description of another trekking trip....

Tuscany by car? Top 5 scenic routes!!!

Tuscany – perfect place to visit by car, motorbike or bicycle. Traveling just from point “A” to point “B” in Tuscany should be forbidden and considered as a crime;-). Getting lost in Tuscany is highly recommended, veer off from main roads… look for own places, be spontaneous. We have visited Tuscany several times and always we discovered something new. You can make there any idea of trip you can imagine: vineyards trail, movie scenes trip, culinary trail… or just get into the car and go ahead looking for beautyful places… without any specific plan. Below our subjective summary  of spectacular routes you absolutely must see! Top 5...

Frankfurt am Main. Put your nose out of the airport!

They call it “the city of white collars” and many people believe that it’s a good place to work, but not necessarily to live in, as it has no climate. Because of my work I spent there in total well over a year and at the beginning I would “sign up” to the statement about dullness of that city. True, it’s not Prague or Vienna. During the war the city was virtually flattened to the ground, so you’d waste your time looking for an old city from the 14th century. There are places, however, for which you should put your nose out of the airport… although the airport itself also deserves a separate...
