The best photographs of the month of October. If there are two spectacular destinations and at the same time different and opposite, these could be both New Zealand for its chilling landscapes, such as Myanmar for its people and for Bagan, a unique place that uncovers thousands of temples sculpted hundreds of years ago on a long plateau.
The Dickson Refuge, our objective in the second stage of the Torres del Paine Circuit O. We knew that a long route of about 19km was waiting for us, and with something more uphill than the previous stage, but we could not imagine how the landscape would change drastically a few steps from the camp. The best, came the great lakes, the glaciers, and the imposing landscapes that we had seen in many photographs.
Slovenia. At the end of July we have set ourselves the challenge of doing a series of hiking trails in a country that had always caught our attention, Slovenia. This jewel at the foot of the Adriatic Sea, has everything that active tourism needs. From cozy beaches where you can practice water sports, to endless activities that we can do in the mountains, from trekking, climbing, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, ..., etc.
To consider making a currency exchange when we visit certain countries abroad is very common. The doubt is always there and the rules are not always the same. That if we use ATMs, changes at the airport, at a local or remote bank, exchange agencies or even with people we meet on the street.
We are facing Lake Inle, a place surrounded by green mountains and more than 200 villages and floating villages. Inle Lake hides everything a traveler looks for. From hiking trails, boat rides, bike routes and even vineyards. Inle Lake is surprising, but as in the rest Myanmar is changing, giving way to luxury hotels in the middle of the lake and ATMs in a town as picturesque as Nyaungshwe.
Visiting New York in winter, what a great dilemma for many travelers who long to visit the city of skyscrapers. If there is a Spanish term that defines very well how one feels in this great city from December to March, it is a cold that peels. In summer it is a joy, but winter for many can be a bit harsh, yes, nothing to do with the cold of Boston, already north of New York.
