Travelling to Australia was something that I wanted to do for absolutely ages. I think witnessing the 2000 Olympics in Sydney created this urge to visit Australia within me!

I've put together a guide to backpacking in Australia, so you can check out all the great places to in this amazing country!

LISBON travel by Glimpses of The World, info, photos, stories and more!

"Once again (as I did in Barcelona with flamenco previously), I left the Fado Theatre Show for my last day in Lisbon... It seemed that every café or restaurant hosted some kind of “fado-night special”...

USA Today has also reported that Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled all of its St Thomas visits for the next couple of months and switched from islands in the eastern Caribbean to those in western Caribbean.

I highly recommend you visit Palawan during a trip to the Philippines. It's without a doubt one of the most beautiful islands in the country. Towering cliffs, golden beaches and lush vegetation make it a paradise for aspiring photographers.

There are plenty of things to do in Palawan as well. You can visit Honda Bay, enter the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, one of the new 7 wonders of the world, or go to El Nido, the last frontier.

As you can see, there are many reasons to visit Palawan! Click on my guide to find out a few more!
