The Definition of a hidden gem

Cavtat has it all…amazing architecture, beautiful views, scuba diving, kayaking on the beautiful Adriatic coast. Here you can have it all, no need to settle like me-stability vs ruining my life :D:D:D

weekly travel destination 01.09.2019 Why visit the Florida Keys?

by Mark Dixon

Do I need to say more:

  1. hot dudes and babes
  2. warm weather
  3. magaritas and cocktails with little umbrellas

The Florida keys is often thought of as the hurricane centre of the US. However, there isn’t a place that can recover that fast.

It’s as fast a recovery as when my wife is ill and I tell her…going out with the boys and suddenly she her voice is no longer stifled and hoarse.

Anyhow, back to why the keys?

Think of the keys like walmart or amazon…your one stop shop. The Florida keys bring together a rich experience of culture, food, sport and much more. Whether your tastes are more historical and artsie you have several art galleries to choose from and the world famous Spiegel Grove Shipwreck or whether you prefer scuba and kayaking and an adventure in the sun. The Florida keys has it all.

Regardless of your puruit. No trip to the keys is worth doing without a visit to the Theatre of the Sea where you can book an eco tour, swim with the dolphins and much more. So what are you waiting on?

Me? I’m just waiting on permission from the mrs….lol

Weekly Travel destination 07,09.2019 Man it’s cold in here…sorry I mean’t cozy

Story by Mark Dixon

Let’s change up the dial a bit. Some of us live in the heat and with all that’s been going on with climate change in recent times maybe we would like to experience something cold for once.

Not me though…I got enough ice off my ex’s heart. Ok ok just kidding…

What better place to go kayaking, take an express boat tour or even be lucky enough to view some indigenous wildlife other than Kenai Fjords National Park.

Not only does the location site give you important updates but many of its amazing glaciers and ice formations are breath-taking.

Hey don’t take our word for it check out the Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, USA today and partake of one or more of the following

  • kayaking
  • Boat tours
  • Ranger led tour
  • Harding Hike
  • Experience the beautiful ‘Exit’ glacier

Weekly Travel Destination 14/09/2019 If only my wife stared at me as much as she stared at Finland’s Architecture!!

story by Mark Dixon

Helsinksi is an architectural dream!

The capital of Finland boasts some of the most beautiful and jaw dropping architecture in the world.

Unlike me (who according to my wife I have no sense of style), the city’s elegant nature blends neatly with its contemporary style and architecture to create a soothing view that will be sure to have you wondering how they did it and how its kept so good…much like my marriage

Be sure to visit the Hotel St. George, once the center of the city’s printing industry. The property features more than 400 pieces of art, culminating in an installation by Ai Weiwei. Oodi, Helsinki’s new central library, is a sweeping cloudlike structure that includes not only sun-infused reading rooms but a cinema, recording studios, and crafting rooms. The latest addition to the gallery scene is Amos Rex, an underground museum of contemporary art, with domed exhibition spaces that bulge upwards into an urban plaza.

So whether you are taking a canal tour or eating at the Karl Fazer Cafe, Helsinski is the place to visit. Take a look at some pictures and you decide.
