Dublin • Irish Folklore At Its Best

You can now read this travel tip on Tiplr.com or download the Tiplr travel app Dublin, like all capital cities, has lots of exciting attractions to keep you occupied and perhaps one of its least well known but the most creative is the National Leprechaun Museum. “Museum” is perhaps a slightly misleading way of describing this…

Florida • Biking Around the South Walton Beaches

Florida consistently has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whether you prefer the white sands of the Gulf coast or the big waves of the Atlantic Coast, every beach seems to have something unique to offer and every beach town has a different vibe. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the several towns along…

Miami • Visit the Gilded Age

Many know Miami for its stunning beaches, beautiful people, fancy cars, Cuban food, and raucous parties. But what you might not know is that Miami holds a hidden treasure: Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. This National Historic Landmark is one place that is definitely worth leaving Miami and South Beach to visit. Villa Vizcaya (as it was formerly named) was commissioned…

Saint Etienne de la Varenne, France • Harvesting Grapes 

Harvests, hills, fabulous estates, the Monte Bianco visible in the distance when the sky is clear, and…grapes. Rows and rows of grapes, with plants 65 years old, that make the Bruilly Wine, typical of the Beaujolais region. We are in France, half an hour to Lyon, in Saint Etienne de la Varenne. There, like in…

Everglades National Park is home to one of the most stunning arrays of wildlife and plant species in the world.

Etna, Sicily • Her Majesty

The volcano, Etna, is the symbol of Sicily and the biggest volcano in Europe. Tourists from all over the world come to Sicily to visit it and walk on its top. From there, I let you imagine the panorama and the sense of infinitive you can feel. We stayed in Catania for two days, hosted by…

Canary Islands • Quiet & Beautiful Playa de la Tejita

Come to Playa de la Tejita, on the south coast of the island of Tenerife, if you would like to escape the masses flocking to the beaches found on the opposite side of la Montaña Roja. The sand here is finer and softer, the water is a bit cleaner and clearer in my opinion, and the…

Canary Islands • Hiking a Volcanic Peak in Tenerife

If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, and you don’t mind your shoes turning pink, why not hike to the top of this volcanic peak, planted right on the southern coast of Tenerife? Montaña Roja is only 171 meters tall, however, I won’t lie – this hike is a workout. It’s quite steep and trickier than it looks. Be prepared…

Zambia • Swim at the Top of a 32-Story Waterfall!

Victoria Falls.  A natural wonder that’s naturally at the top of everyone’s bucket list. But did you know that you can swim at the top of it? Yes, it sounds completely insane, but there is an infinity pool on top of the 32-story falls. The Devil’s Pool was formed after years of erosion created a rock wall…

Cabo de Gata, Spain • For True Nature Lovers 

Cabo de Gata is a natural park close to Almeria, in southern Spain. Beautiful and uncontainable beaches, quiet atmosphere (apart from August, when tourism reaches more or less every spot of the earth) and nature surround the joy of taking a road trip to this place. To have a car is a useful tip for…

Amsterdam, Netherlands • Alternative Travel Gathering 2016

In the last weekend of July (29th-31st) I have had the chance to participate as a speaker at the Alternative Travel Gathering, held in Amsterdam‘s Vondelbunker, a squat situated inside the Vondelpark, the city’s most popular park. While the name for the event itself may seem self-explanatory, the truth is that there is a lot more…

Sifnos, Greece • Jump from Rocks Below Two Incredible Panagias

What really charmed me about the island of Sifnos is its variety. Sifnos has a few thousand of years of history as a wealthy and inhabited Cycladic island.  Sifnos is greener than other Greek islands, has about 365 Orthodox churches and several swimming spots, each one different from the other. The eastern side of the island is mainly…
