If you’re looking forward to a unique vacation this summer, you might want to book a trip to India. Below are the oddest activities you can do on vacation, and you can do them all while you’re in Jaipur.

Psychic Encounters

This visit is probably those who want to be wowed by a total stranger recounting everything that happened in his or her past. As for “fortune telling”, we find the readings a bit too generically pleasant to be precise. Should you find yourself in Jantar Mantar, look for the board which announces the Rajasthan Astrological Council & Research Institute. This is a small office neatly tucked away in the observatory.

The Galapagos Islands are very isolated, and that’s why we can find even today some endangered or extincted species elsewhere. Making researches on this remoted island, Charles Darwin put the bases of his revolutionary evolutionist theory.

If you travel there, you can still admire the fantastic Galapagos lizzard!

Aspen, Colorado

Nightlife as spectacular as the view?

The incredible skiing and winter sports might be the main draw of Aspen, Colorado, but the nightlife of Aspen won’t disappoint.

The resorts in Aspen usually have lounges, clubs, or bars too, so if a vibrant nighttime scene is important to you, look for a hotel with a reputable bar while making reservations. You can usually visit the club at any hotel, regardless of whether you actually stay there. Check out the Aspen Magazine’s Traveler’s Guide to find a list of Aspen nightclubs and bars, and details about what to expect at each.

If you prefer cultural nightlife, check out the Crystal Palace comedy club. The often political-based satire will have you in stitches, and the delicious food will ensure an empty stomach isn’t distracting you from the entertainment. It’s a popular spot, though, so ensure you make reservations ahead of time.


Handy ATM tips for travelers abroad

Traveling abroad incurs lots of expenses that we can’t avoid. In today’s modern world, credit cards and traveler’s checks make our vacations easy and worry free, but let’s face it: being armed with cold cash can save you in many a desperate situation and even save a potentially disastrous day. While credit cards are now accepted worldwide from big shopping malls to quaint little coffee houses, not all establishments accept them. For example, street vendors in Hong Kong offer numerous items from handbags to AA batteries to sunglasses and pillow cases, but they only deal with cash; a real silk scarf can be had in the bazaars in Istanbul, but only if you have the money to buy it with. This is precisely the reason why ATMs machines are like a shining beacon of hope to travelers making their way in a foreign country. Ask around among travelers and they’ll probably tell you that one of the first things they look for upon arrival at their destination is and bright, shiny ATMs.

Unfortunately, many of the traditional tourist destinations developed themselves to turning plates of the international crime. It is not your goal to interfere with that, I am sure. You only wish to visit a nice city, its museums, having contact with locals. But you need to stay alert, because the pocket thieves can ruin your vacations! The basic rules to avoid that are very simple and very well known by you, as by any other tourist. But in some places you must take extra care! Most of them are in Europe, as Europe is still the favorite target for many tourists coming from the all world. But some interesting and recommended locations are competing with this fame of the old continent!

So, these are in my opinion some dangerous places:

1.Hanoi. In such an exciting city with a well preserved colonial center and 600 temples there are also some pocket thieves waiting for you.

Well, dear friends, breath deeply and listen to me: The Okavango Delta in Botswana is a place you must see in this life. It is really one of the Earth’s most impressive and most beautiful places.

But, first of all, let’s make it clear: if you think to a classic delta, you are terribly wrong. Okavango Delta is not a place where the river reaches the ocean. The Okavango River never reaches the ocean! It simply vanishes in the desert, due to the strong transpiration and evaporation. 100 years ago it was totally impossible to admit and understand that, but this is the true: the mighty sandy Kalahari Desert simply swallows the Okavango River! The Okavango Delta is actually Africa’s biggest oasis.
