West Virginia • A Lively Mountain Music Joint

This tip comes from Greg Buzulencia at ViaHero. Funky, eclectic, free-spirited, honky-tonk and energetic are a few words that describe this live music venue in the middle of nowhere, West Virginia.

Havana, Cuba • The Secret Party Garden

This tip comes from Greg Buzulencia at ViaHero. Buda Bar, outside of the tourist-laden Habana Vieja, is a meditation center by day and a bumping party by night.

Egadi Islands, Sicily • Nature and Bikes

Islands in a island. Why not? With curiosity we took the ferry going to the Egadi Islands, in Trapani’s district. Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo, each one with a different history, kind of people, way of being. First we arrived to Favignana, the island of butterflies. Touristic and full of movida even at the beginning of September,…

Santa Clara, Cuba • Come for Che, Stay for a Cristal

Santa Clara is Cuba’s 5th largest city but other than the mausoleum of Che Guevara there really isn’t much else to see and do, I was there for less than 24 hours and that was more than enough time. It lacks the charm of Havana and has very little by way of tourist attractions and…

Thailand is one of the most fascinating places in the world, especially for the westerners because of its different culture and traditions.

Agrigento, Sicily • Some Pampering on the Beach

Agrigento means Valley of Temples and Scala dei Turchi, the famous sites where more or less everybody goes, when visiting this part of Sicily. I personally didn’t go to any of these places, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it: simply I didn’t have the time to do it, because I spent amazing days…
