Let’s go around the globe and check out the most jaw dropping and mind boggling optical illusions. We might not be able to see them all but if ever you will be in one of these places, make sure to see them.

Polar Lights in Alta, Norway

The polar lights are the lava lamps on steroids of nature. You can either call them aurora borealis or aurora australis depending on where you are. This colorful display is caused by solar particles colliding with the gases in the atmosphere causing the emission of the colorful lights in red, green, white, blue, or purple.

The town of Alta in Norway is a great place to go to if you want to see the magnificent polar lights.

Mexico City is the second megacity of our planet, after Tokyo. 25 millions people from Area metropolitana call Mexico City home. To make a comparation: all the scandinavian coutries put together reach not 25 millions people!

Mexico City is huge and is expanding daily and florishes. It is the country’s most important economic and financial hub, easy to imagine. It is also a megacity of contrasts:

-it is an expansive city, but you can also live on budget here;

-between all the megacities of our world,it is maybe the worst located megacity of our planet( a valley surrounded by mountains at 2300 m, which makes ventilation impossible)

-it is generally a safe place, but you should avoid Tepito, where drugs addicted and drug smuggler deal all day long. Especially if you don’t speak spanish, you can count with hard times

Travel Tips: How to have a cheaper holiday

As we keep ourselves busy trying to earn some money to pay bills and live a comfortable life, and we get a few days of break in a year. We enjoy these days off away from everything but we tend to spend a lot and burn a big hole into our savings account. There are simple ways though to get our dream holiday way cheaper than normal:

Save money when booking your flight

Applying the right strategy when buying your plane tickets will save you a lot of hard earned cash. It is best to take a flight midweek when the airfare is cheapest. Surveys show that the cheapest day to purchase your ticket is on Tuesdays.

If you are flying with another person, split the purchase when shopping for tickets. When you do this, the system will not consider the seats together and you might actually shave off some amount on the fare.

Montreal storm

Hmmm. A Montreal vacation. Sounds kind of appealing, huh? Think about it. It’s an absolutely gorgeous

area. If you were able to take a Montreal vacation in the winter, it’s supposed to be the perfect winter wonderland. But if you can’t get there in winter, the spring and summer seasons are just as beautiful…without the snow and cold, of course.

Regardless of which season you decide to vacation in Montreal, there is so much to see and do. Such as Chateau Terrace. If you go here, you will get a fantastic view of Mont Royal and then be able to enjoy yourself in the Chateau’s café and shops afterward. It’s a simple walk from downtown and a great way to pass the time.
