Palau

The Republic of Palau is inimitable. Most tourists who come here like to spend their time underwater, Palau is one of the most spectacular in the world of diving. It has coral reefs, blue holes, wrecks in war, hidden caves and tunnels, steep vertical over 60 to play with, and a surprising range of corals, fish and rare creatures of the sea. There are also some direct miracles of evolution, giant clams that weigh a quarter ton, for example, and a lake full of 21 million softly pulsating, stingless jellyfish.

But you do not have to get wet to enjoy Palau. In the land of the republic includes the richest flora and fauna of Micronesia: exotic birds want around the islands, crocodiles glide through mangroves and orchids sprout profusely in the backyards. The archipelago of Palau is diverse, encompassing the polyglot state of Koror, the beautiful rocky islands, the second largest island of Micronesia, Babeldaob (land that PT forgot?), Peleliu, once ravaged by war, now just stunning, quiet, small Angaur, coral atolls and Kayangel Ngeruangel, and the remote islands of the South-West.

Stir in some of the most sociable of Micronesia (and responsible) people, and it is not surprising that parts of the palace known as the “principle of everything,” a template of the rest of the world would do well to follow.

On this responsibility: Palacio love a good acronym, socially conscious, and can be seen everywhere on signs and billboards, as “WAVE – all kinds of customers with enthusiasm” or “STARS – Initiate treatment of symptoms associated with alcohol. ” You could find yourself in this game, too. And maybe get to the same conclusion as us, that the name of this country itself is an acronym: “Palau Islands: Lovely and unique.”

Bulgaria

Five centuries of Ottoman rule and subjugated most recently ended four decades firmly behind the Iron Curtain came to Bulgaria in a distant, enigmatic in the eyes of much of the rest of the world. Images of cheap wine overthrown in student parties, ski holidays and umbrella handle murderers budget of the Cold War were once among the popular stereotypes, but Bulgaria today is a very different country than it was 10 years ago.

For most foreign visitors, Bulgaria’s main attraction is its long, sandy Black Sea Coast – which still has stretches of beaches and picturesque bays despite the expansive construction work – but there’s more to this country , so much of it remains largely untouched and unvisited by foreign tourists. The networks of well maintained trails and horse riding to discover lush mountain scenery and forest Bulgaria, especially around the Rila and Pirin, inhabited by bears, lynx, exotic birds and other wildlife now becoming scarcer elsewhere in Europe . Move around the country is easy, cheap public transport and efficient transport between the cities and in the most remote, rural corners, where the traditional rhythm, slow life goes on as it has for centuries. Here you will find multicolored monasteries filled with fabulous icons and watched over by priests beard, and incredibly beautiful half-timbered villages with spirals of smoke lazily over the stone roofs and donkeys complaining about the distance, where the old ladies headscarfed and grandchildren are curious look in amazement at the arrival of outsiders. Cities also often overlooked highlights, from the dynamic, cosmopolitan Sofia with its lovely parks, sociable open-air bars and fascinating museums, the National Revival architectural treasures and Roman remains of Plovdiv, and the young maritime cockiness of Varna.

A full member of NATO and paid (since 2007) the EU, Bulgaria has the feel of a nation in a very important crossroads. Foreign investment has created a massive construction boom, not just around the largest beach and ski tourism but also in cities. More tourists than ever are discovering this country and an ever increasing number of foreigners who are investing in property here. Also, the Bulgarian population is declining faster than elsewhere in Europe, wages are the lowest on the continent – which triggered the attacks increasingly long and bitter, and the old problems of bureaucratic incompetence and bubble organized crime away in the background. Environmental damage caused by overfishing has been a particular cause for public alarm in recent years, and several national and international organizations that fight for some of these issues to the attention of a wider world. As much as I complain, however, the Bulgarians are a patriot, if modest lot, – when asked, as often, if you love your country, you really worry that you will leave with good impressions.

Prices have certainly risen since Bulgaria became an EU member, but compared to Western European countries, travelers are generally a destination pleasantly inexpensive, and easy and pleasant to travel once you have mastered the Cyrillic alphabet in Bulgaria and enough to buy a bus ticket. Bring your own transportation and the whole country is yours to explore.
