Whether you’re a globetrotter by passion or profession, you know that the best thing you can expect from any city is its nightlife. This is why we’ve gathered the best night clubs around the globe. If you land in any of these countries, don’t forget to give their prime bars a try.
Bar Isabel in Argentina
The two most talked-about bars in Argentina is the Bar Isabel located in Buenos Aires, within easy reach of those who are already in the capital.
If you’re all for the glitz and the glamour, you might want to drop by this watering hole. Just make sure that you’re dressed to kill as well. Chic and smart is the way to go here. The interior of the bar closely resembles its next door neighbor, the Casa Cruz, probably because both were designed by fun loving Chilean Juan Santa Cruz.
For most travelers, cleanliness plays an important part when they are traveling across the world. I’ve heard of horror stories where travelers report that some hotels were so dirty, they had to resort to sleeping upon their own blankets because the sheets were too dirty. There were even rubbish strewn on the floor and leftover dinners in the microwave! I wonder if these hotels ever had chambermaids to take care of the hotel’s hygiene at all!
Here, we’ve compiled the top 5 best hotels to visit in Australia and New Zealand if you like your mode of accommodation as spotlessly clean as ever!

There are weird creatures that you may encounter during your travel adventures but there are certain critters that may just put your journey into a halt. Let us introduce you to the the most dangerous, creepiest creatures that might seem to be lifted from the pages of a horror tale:
Human Botfly in Belize
Human botflies have been inhabitants for the Americas for centuries now. They thrive in the regions between the northern portion of Chile and Mexico. Human botfly uses mosquitoes and flies as hosts of their eggs by attaching them to the undersides of these insects. So when a mosquito lands on the back of the a dog, a pig, or misfortune of all misfortunes, your skin, the eggs might hatch and send the larvae digging down your skin. Under your skin, human botflies will eat on your flesh and make it their regular meal until they need to burrow out as maturing pupae.

Adventure holidays in Australia
Australia has a number of diverse and extreme landscapes and climates, from the subtropical forests to the beautiful rugged coastlines and to the dry, sparse outback, so it is a great place to get away from it all and have an adventure holiday.
There are plenty of hiking and trekking holidays through the wilderness areas of Australia, which will suit a variety of different fitness levels. Auswalk offers a range of guided and self guided ‘Inn-to-Inn’ walking tours, including some great treks through the best of Australia‘s National Parks. Auswalk arrange for your luggage to be moved ahead of you each day, so that you have everything ready when you arrive at the next accommodation stop. Walking trips include the famous ‘Great Ocean Walk‘, which takes you along the beautiful Victoria coastline from Torquay to Lorne, and has a seven day itinerary (five days walking). Also there is the Peninsula Ramble, which takes you across the Mornington Peninsula in Southern Melbourne, which has some fantastic coastal scenery and beaches and like the Great Ocean Walk has a seven day itinerary. If you fancy something a little shorter and more sedate then there is a wonderful trek through the tropical paradise of Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef region, which is just three days walking.

Recently there has been public outcry in Australia after attempts were made to legalize the hunting of crocodiles for sport. This form of ‘entertainment’ has been wildly criticized by the RSPCA, Humane Society International and also the International Fund for Animal Welfare to name but a few.
Australia has long been known as every adventurous traveler’s haven, but if you go here without reading up on the prime spots, the list of places to visit can be pretty overwhelming. Below is a list of the best islands in Australia if the trip you’re looking for is all about ecotourism and nature tripping.
Lord Howe Island
If you’re sick of concrete and the plasticity of coffee shops in the city, the first Australian island you should escape to is Lord Howe. This is 435 miles from Sidney, and retains almost the same landscape it once hand when the New Zealanders and Maoris first landed in it in 1833. The place is the epitome of serenity, and will give you your much-needed space provided that you’re prepared to rough it out.
