The Sydney Harbour Bridge
It is the most famous bridge in Australia. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is located opposite the Sydney Opera House and close to Circular Quay. You can certainly find the Sydney Harbour Bride on most postcards, souvenirs and any tourist guides. The Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House are iconic images of both Sydney and Australia.

Gold Coast Hinterland – Mount Tamborine
The “Green behind the Gold” is the term given to the lush hinterland that sweeps up from the golden beaches of the Gold Coast to mountains, plateaus, gorges and valleys that remain at peace with nature. They contain a storehouse of environmental treasures now fully protected in vast swathes of pristine country under the banner of World Heritage Listing as the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia (formerly known as the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves).

 Snapshots From Life in North Korea

In the North, nothing is straightforward 
Imagine the world’s least known and least understood country. Imagine a place where everybody lives under the direct control and guidance of the government, a place where every individual is supposed to work for the gains of the collective.

It’s totally true that if – in our lives – we did some things Italians do regularly, our life would be better.

Varadero – outside of all inclusive resorts

After traveling throughout the Cuba for 14 days in rented car Vera and I returned to the place where our journey began. It seems like we are leaving old Cuba behind and returning to “real” world, with lots of Canadian tourist around and English language spoken everywhere.

 CUBA BY CAR: Bay of Pigs

Traveling Cuba – Stage 6.

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Central Cuba – Off the beaten track in Cuba
The leg from the port town of Cienfuegos to Playa Giron, leads through a swamp area and along sugar plantations. The recurring sound of horses makes this leg of the trip cozy. It is a journey amid abundant vegetation very near to the coast, small villages and scare cities.

After breakfast we left Trinidad for the Cienfuegos and Península de Zapata. There we were expecting an extensive swamp region that is inhabited by crocodiles and flamingos, also declared a National Park. We also wanted to see well known Bahia de los Cochinos, the famous Bay of Pigs.

Central Cuba – Off the beaten track in Cuba
We are continuing our adventurous trip through Cuba. So far we traveled from Havana to western part of Cuba to visit Pinar del Rio and Vinales. From there we returned back east to Varadero and Cardenas, where we stayed over night at casa particular. From Cardenas we traveled on small country roads thru many Cuban villages to visit Santa Clara.

Central Cuba – Off the beaten track in Cuba
We are continuing our adventurous trip through Cuba. After dropping off our friend Ljiljana at the Varadero airport, Vera and I drove to a small town Cardenas, which is only 38 km east of Varadero airport. There we could rent a room in casa particular since this would be illegal in Varadero.

 CUBA ON YOUR OWN – Havana

Traveling Cuba – Part 1.

 By: Zdenko Kahlina

Havana – Casa particular
The best vacations are when you travel without schedule. I refuse to go on one of these “All inclusive” tourist packages where they give you a schedule and they say, “O.K., from nine to 10 we’re going to go to the museum, and then from 10 to 11, and we are going to the art museum, then we’ll stop for a lunch”. That to me is like being in school; that’s not a vacation.
