Poland

Overrun countless times by thieves aggressors, subjugated to the dominant foreign domination for centuries, and now told their beloved vodka can do anything, the Polish nation has suffered more than most. However, Poland, a country crushed flat so many times it has become indestructible, is shaking off the last vestiges of sleep and forced current with great abandon in a modern 21 st century.

Despite the country’s rush to embrace the future, your past can not be ignored, especially when confronted at every turn. Warsaw may include New World cuisine, café culture and clubs that never close, but still find the farmers selling flowers in beautifully restored old town. Drive through northern extension and meet a string of 14-century Gothic castles, as the shining example in Malbork, the last remnants of the Teutonic Knights, once powerful. Take a low-cost flight to Krakow and Wroclaw and arrive in magnificent medieval centers. Or choose almost any major city of Lublin in Poznan – and small towns too – and I bear witness to the extermination camps established by Nazi Germany, abandoned Jewish cemeteries, and dark political prisons, terrible reminders of the past 70 years .

This massive land in the heart of Europe has become the epitome of a changing continent. Now a member of the EU, which is enjoying the benefits – and experience the challenges, the exclusive club. Money has begun flowing into the country, repairing roads, building shopping centers and street beautification, but progress is painfully slow for some. Poland still has an unemployment rate twice as high as some of his compatriots in the EU and its citizens young and educated are leaving mass of richer pastures.
Poland
While rapidly modernizing cities, the landscape still retains its rustic charm. On stretches of southern Poland, dominated by mountains covered with trees, the cliché of the horse-drawn carts transporting hay fields remains valid. Bucolic splendor spreads from the outskirts of urban centers, as far as the eye can see, and pockets of virgin forest in the northeast shelter herds of wild bison. The clear waters of the Great Masurian Lakes prove irresistible to sailors and kayakers, and long sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea coast offers a great opportunity for the summer, stays near the sea.

Asia

Asia sticks to you. The incense sticks burning of household shrines in Thailand imparting a sweet scent in the air thick. The heavenly aroma of Indian spices is followed by several days.

This is a spiritual place infused with the gods of past and present: the ancient spirits of the land and the family, the deities of Buddhism and Hinduism and the rules of Islam. Architectural wonders and sacred spaces abound in the Great Wall of China and the temples of Angkor lesser known marvels in Myanmar, Nepal and Afghanistan.

From the shores sublime snow-capped mountains, rolling landscapes fed by monsoon rains and frenetic cities weaken the energy, diversity of landscapes in Asia is amazing. What are your highlights of the Malaysian jungle trekking and wildlife in southern India to ride on horseback across the steppes of Mongolia, skiing in the Japan Alps and dodging falling coconuts on remote continents many islands.

Then there’s the food. Test the fire curries of India, ventured with a dish of one side of the road and swallow a bowl of Japanese ramen abundant. With its colors, smells, tastes and personalities, is in Asia is deliciously rewarding.

Jordan

For many people, Jordan begins and ends with the magical city of ancient Nabataean Petra. And it is true, Petra is certainly one of the most spectacular in the Middle East, essential sights, Machu Picchu or struggling with Angkor Wat for the title of world’s most spectacular ‘Lost City’.

However, there is much more to see in Jordan – ruined Roman cities, Crusader castles, desert citadels and powerful biblical sites: the stream, where Jesus was baptized, the fortress where Herod beheaded John the Baptist and the top of the mountain where Moses the Promised Land view. Biblical scenes are not just a thing of the past in Jordan, you’ll see a lot of men dressed in full robes and leading herds of cattle across the desert forever. But not all crusty ruins. The Jordanian capital Amman is a modern, culturally diverse Arab, which is light years away from the clichés typical Middle Eastern exoticism. The country also offers some of the wildest adventures in the region, and a varied background ranging from red desert sands of Wadi Rum the brilliant blue of the Gulf of Aqaba coral filled, from palm-fringed boulevards rich in the Dead Sea, lifeless. Ultimately, it is the sensual delights of everyday life in the Middle East that will love you longer after returning home, the bittersweet taste of cardamom coffee or the smell of a rich aroma nargileh (water pipe), the heady whirlwind Arabic pop sliding threshold from Amman and the deafening silence of the desert.

Jordanians are proud and passionate people and the country really welcomes visitors with open arms.

Wales

In the surrounding region dry and dusty, Karonga is a relaxed little town with wide streets and pastoralists. It is the first city and the last on the road between Malawi and Tanzania, and has some good facilities, including the only bank in the north of Mzuzu.

New South Wales is a vibrant place where history is alive and Welsh culture finds new forms of expression. The mixture of tradition and sophistication rebellious New World is one of the greatest assets of Wales today. The male voice choirs can still keep a welcome in the valleys, but an alternative culture flourishes in urban centers such as Cardiff a healthy dose of hedonism oozes from gourmet kitchens and hip hotels and a strong motive environmental awareness is based on country-sighted perspective.

Wales remains an open area, excellent: grab the hiking boots or a mountain bike and head of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with its stunning scenery and the coast road, or lost in the onslaught of waves, beaches and limestone cliffs that sweep of the Gower Peninsula. You can visit the villages with tongue-twisting names before settling into a cozy pub with a pint of local beer in Brecon Beacons, or join the adrenaline junkies in search of the ultimate adventure in Llandudno – Welsh style.
