Australia – The Adventure Begins
Australia is a continent of opposites. The densely populated east coast contrasts with the barren red center, the snowy mountains with the desert, and the white skin of immigrant Europeans contrasts with the dark skin of the Aboriginals. Someone is attracted to Australia because it is so far away from us, someone just because of its incredible contrasts, but one thing is certain - it is definitely worth coming here.

We are going to Wisconsin, USA for the third time today. It is said to be home to the ice cream cup. Reportedly first served in 1891 in Two Rivers. And the people of Wisconsin are still big fans of ice cream. According to statistics, the locals eat nearly 80 million liters a year. And this is a really dizzying figure, because there are less than 6 million people in the state. Czechs, on the other hand, eat "only" 40 million liters of ice cream a year.

If I could only return to Scotland in one place, it would be either a remote and deserted mountainous island of Harriss, or justified by Skye. And the more I think about it, the more Skye wins.
Guatemala, Huehuetenango and Quetzaltenango – Towns with Difficult Names
The city of Huehuetenango is located in the department of the same name, Huehuetenango, which is one of the most diverse in nature and culture in Guatemala. At the same time, it is not very well known and visited, so it is not crowded with tourists. The city itself is therefore such an ordinary city without many monuments, but retains its authenticity. It is rather just a town for a short stop and overnight stay.

USA, California: Riverside – A Short Trip on Your Way Across California
Our tourist destination today is the city of Riverside, which lies approximately a hundred kilometers east of the megalopolis of Los Angeles. In comparison, it looks like a small suburb with its 300,000 inhabitants. However, if you want to try something other than a traditional overcrowded tourist destination, it is a great cruise destination.
Slovenia: Lake Bohinj, Savica Waterfall, and Church
From the town of Bled we set out for another natural gem in Slovenia - the largest lake in the country. It covers an area of over 3 km². We will talk about Lake Bohinj, whose shores provide a wonderful walk around the Triglav National Park.
Scotland: A Surprise in Applecross and a Journey to Skye – VIDEO
The mountains in the north-west of Scotland rarely exceed 800 meters and roads usually run along rivers or coasts. Therefore, I would not expect here to be as beautiful and high as Applecross pass. Let's go to there!
Guatemala – Flores and a Trip to Cobana
From Belize we headed to Flores. As soon as we cross the border, they start chasing us on expensive tourist buses. We will not be fooled, we will cross the local bridge and ask for “non-touristic buses”. Of course, there are regular buses to Flores, which are much cheaper.

Missouri, Kansas City – To History and Modern Science
Today you will set out on a trip to the bowels of a steamer. Well, not quite, we go to the Arabia Steamboat Museum. On September 5, 1856, a steamer sank in the Missouri River, just 10 miles from Kansas City, carrying approximately 200 tons of supplies for stores in the American Midwest. The Arabia ship had been forgotten for over 130 years, until it was accidentally discovered by an amateur archaeologist in a cornfield, because the river had changed due to erosion.

Scotland: Rocky Mountains of West Coast – VIDEO
After a whole day in the wetlands in the north of Scotland, I headed west along the coast to get back to the mountains. They are much lower than those in the center of the country, but it does not detract from their beauty. Because of the harsh climates, heather and grass are often not kept on them, often leaving only majestic gray rocks.
Belize – Corozal, Altun Ha and Spanish Lookout
Belize is a small country we visit on our journey through Central America, and quite expensive, so we'll just hitchhike it rather than stay in the Caribbean or some tourist activity. However, it is worth mentioning three places.
