5 Different Ways to Travel This Summer

Take a Road Trip around Morocco

There is something striking about road travelling across this vast country endowed with such sites to behold; from the highest peaks of the Atlas ranges to the golden sandy dunes of the Erg Chebbi desert. A road trip allows you to pick out features that you will enjoy, allowing you to go off the back routes and discover unseen sides of the country.

You can begin by taking a bus through the city of Marrakech and enjoy the views of the hustle and bustle without necessarily getting involved in the never ending activities. Enjoy the spectacular views of the dominating Koutoubia Mosque and the busy Jamaa El Fna square.

Take a trip to the old medina of Fez and stop over at the Cascades de’ Ouzoud; then head to the Roman ruins of Volubilis and head to Rabat, Casablanca and back to Marrakech.
In order to fully enjoy your trip, consider taking a local guide with you, especially if you want to explore the areas off the conventional paths.

Volunteer Abroad In China

There are other ways to enjoy a fantastic holiday while still impacting the lives of others. China is a fabulous destination for such humanitarian deeds and its natural beauty is unmatched; from the streaming jungles of the tropical south to the windswept grasslands of Mongolia.

You can volunteer helping disabled youngsters in the city of Xi’an or experience the exciting bustle of real Chinese classrooms as you  teach English in China in one of the many possible destinations.

Cruise the Galapagos

You may be wondering where to visit this summer for some incredible experience and a bit of inspiration; well these islands may just do the trick for you.  The Galapagos are a wildlife explorer’s dream destination. Discover the interesting flora and fauna that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution.

You can enjoy different fun activities such as snorkeling and walking along the pristine islands and witness colonies of birds and wild animals unfazed by your presence. In Isla Santa Cruz you will discover Darwin’s research on giant tortoise and other endangered species. You will see interesting animals such as sea lions, red marine iguanas and penguins.


Relax On the Beach in India



India is not only a hub for architectural beauty and varied landscape but also offers some of the world’s most scenic beaches. Goa definitely takes the crown as the ultimate beach destination in India.


The picturesque Palolem Beach, Goa is spectacular and the best beach in the whole of India. A thick forest of coconut palms surrounds this semi- circular beach. It offers both relaxation and adventure; you can go dolphin spotting, fishing in a boat or hire a boat and explore the amazing scenic beauty. As it’s also surrounded by beautiful resorts like the  Cidade de Goa you can also rely on somewhere great to stay when you’ve had enough of the beach.

For a more solitude beach experience, the stunning Varkala beach in Kerala is an ideal destination as you enjoy the perfect views of the Arabian waters atop the rugged cliffs along the shore.

Take a Trip to Brazil

Brazil is gaining popularity as a fantastic touristic destination not only for its  famed carnivals (Preview) in Rio de Janeiro but also its delightful beaches and party loving people. If you like it loud and colorful, you better head to Brazil right away.

The Bahia beach is a hot spot for beach lovers, enjoy the white sands and palm trees. Alternatively, you could take a trip round the Fernando de Noronha archipelago for a discovery trip. Don’t forget to visit Sao Paolo which is Brazil’s biggest city and enjoy a drink in the chi-chi bars.
