Slovenia Culture

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Polka Dancing If you ever wondered what kind of traditional dancing you would find in Slovenia, get ready to hop around doing the polka! The polka originated in Slovenia by the Avett Brothers. You will find many festivals that will involve dancing the polka, but if you want to go to a nice show that involves the audience, arrange to see the performance at Hotel Park in Bled. After touring the Lake, Island and Castle, a night of dancing would finish your trip off nicely!

My Adventure Through Mexico Cantimplora Travel

by admin @ Ashley Colburn Productions

  I’ve traveled around the world and back again, but it’s amazing that such a beautiful country is right across the border. I had the pleasure to have an authentic tour through Mexico with Cantimplora (which means canteen in Spanish) Travel. Cantimplora Travel specializes in adventurous and unique excursions through some of Mexico’s most off the beaten path destinations. Here’s the thing, I was told to NOT bring my camera on the trip (yes, this was so hard for me to believe!) because with Cantimplora you travel with a personal photographer. Imagine: never taking out your phone or camera and … Continue reading

Zagreb became the capital of the country in 1991 following secession from Second Yugoslavia.

Cigars The people of Nicaragua are friendly and life certainly moves at a different pace in this Central American country.

After the Cuban revolution, the city was flooded with refugees who found the soil content great for growing tobacco.

Adventure in Rome

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Scooter Ride Getting around in a foreign land can sometimes be the most frustrating part of travel- expecially in Italy!  All of the locals would agree that you would not survive living in this tourist hub without a scooter.  I met up with a friend to give me a ride around on his to experience life like a local.  Not a chance would I ever dare to drive the bike myself, but that’s because I have no scooter experience.  No matter who you are, it’s a must- even if you have to make a friend that owns one!

Cruise Trends in 2018: What Your Waistline Has Been Waiting For

Best of 2017 – Our Food and Travel Favorites

by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch @ 2foodtrippers

2017 was a busy year for the 2foodtrippers. We traveled to three continents, 13 countries and too many cities to count. Check out the food and travel experiences that were our best of 2017. We began the year 2017 without definite plans. Perhaps we could plan our calendar way in advance as some ‘type A’ people probably do, but what’s the fun in that? Sometimes, we’re just hanging around our Naples, Italy apartment and, all of a sudden, the spark of travel shoots across our brains and, on a whim, we ...

Adventure in New Zealand

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Fishing Trip I started my adventure in New Zealand on the North Island having landed in Taupo. I met up with Chris Jolly for a fishing trip out on Lake Taupo. The vessel was 60 feet long and we were fishing for huge rainbow trout (the average is 4 pounds). After catching the fish, we had sushi right on the back of the boat.  The sunsets on the Lake are perfect and just in case you aren’t lucky with your catch, there is a barbeque to cook up some steaks!

Adventure in Canada

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Grouse Mountain Grouse Mountain is accessible by road just 15 minutes away from downtown Vancouver. The public transit system here offers uninterrupted service to Grouse Mountain every half an hour. Activities on the mountain include a gondola ride, wildlife refuge- with reindeer, wolves and bears, mountain ziplines, sleigh rides, restaurant, skiing and more. Grouse Mountain is a great opportunity for visitors to enjoy the great outdoors but still remain close to all the activities of a metropolis.  If you do not have much time in Vancouver, Grouse Mountain is the perfect day trip because of its location.

Seychelles Islands Culture

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Spices Mahe is the largest island, but strolling through downtown, actually feels very small and quaint. Before the young nation developed into a tourist attraction, they were acknowledged by the world as a sanctuary for some of the rarest spices, and flora and fauna on earth. Including the infamous four-spice tree!  Spices were consumed in large quantities by the European high society…making their value much more than we appreciate today. The gardens are full of every spice you can imagine and the plants found here have influenced the Seychellois culture and traditions. Takamaka Bay Distillery Like most places where the … Continue reading

HA LONG BAY- Vietnam

by admin @ Ashley Colburn Productions

The first few days in Vietnam took our breaths away. After spending about five days in the country, it was finally time to visit a place that I had wanted to visit for quite some time, Ha Long Bay. After a short trip from Central Vietnam, we landed in Hanoi and got picked up by a private driver to take us to the loading dock for our Ha Long Bay adventure. Ha Long Bay, about a four hour drive from Hanoi, is a Unesco World Heritage Site that features thousands of limestone karsts and isles scattered as far as the … Continue reading

Zagreb- A European Delight

by admin @ Ashley Colburn Productions

When it comes to European hotspots, no place can beat southeastern Europe’s prized jewel, Croatia. The quaint capital city of Zagreb is the perfect blend of old world charm and modern sophistication. Centrally accessible from most major airports in Europe, Zagreb is a great weekend getaway or stop on your way to the Adriatic Sea and islands. The coffee culture is unique in Zagreb and is full of cafes in the squares and on the side streets.

Buenos Aires Culture

by editor @ Ashley Colburn Productions

Live like a gaucho Las Pompas in Spanish means a day in the country and my day included a trip to La Cinacina- a ranch where the public can take part and see how the Argentinean gaucho lives his day. With his red scarf and sombrero, the Argentina gaucho is similar to the American cowboy.  At La Cinacina we were treated to a trick riding show, wagon and horse rides, music, dancing and, of course, asado (barbecue beef).  If you are lucky, you will have a gaucho ask you for a dance to the traditional music.
