I travel to get to know the unknown

 [Marko Roth]

“In 2015 we explored Bhutan & Nepal and were absolutely overwhelmed by its beauty. We went rafting in the Barauli river, did a safari in Chitwan National Park to bath with elephants and observe rhinos and tigers, watched the prayers of monks, made friends with the locals, discovered the valley of Paro with horses and climbed the Mount Everest in the Himalaya (not really 😛 but we saw it from an airplane).” Check out the full story HERE

About Primitive Technology

“Primitive technology is a hobby where you make things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. This is the strict rule. If you want a fire- use fire sticks, an axe- pick up a stone and shape it, a hut- build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without modern technology. If this hobby interests you then this blog might be what you are looking for.”  READ MORE

A Greek Christmas Tradition

While people across the world are decorating their Christmas trees, many Greeks opt for the Greek tradition of decorating a small boat. Greece was always a maritime country and, in the past, the majority of men worked as fishermen or sea men. For many centuries, Greeks have been decorating small wooden boats in order to express their gratitude for the safe return of their loved ones who were travelling at sea for the rest of the year.
