Russia

For centuries the world has wondered what to believe about Russia. The country has been reported variously as a land of incredible wealth and poverty indescribable cruel tyrants and great minds, generous hospitality and meddlesome bureaucracy, beautiful ballets and industrial monsters, godly faith and unbridled hedonism. These eternal truths Russians live in equally diverse landscapes of the frozen tundra beaches and sun-kissed, silver birch and fir forests dense and deep, mysterious lakes, snow capped mountains and rolling meadows, those famous steppes.

After nearly two decades of war, Liberia, a country lush rainforested covered through the southern flank of West Africa – appears to have finally found a break. With the first woman president in Africa at the head, peace, while still fragile, is taking place and Liberians have been launched with enthusiasm to the task of rebuilding their shattered land.

If Liberia is stabilized and open for travel, intrepid adventurers who offer a fascinating insight into what was previously a wonderfully hospitable society, enigmatic and fascinating. The artistic traditions of Liberia – especially carved masks, dance and storytelling – rivaled those of any place on the continent, and traditional culture was strong. This was especially true in the interior, where initiation secret societies played a central role in growth, and still serve as important reservoirs of traditional knowledge and life skills. For now, most of this cultural wealth remains inaccessible to visitors, and travel independently outside the capital Monrovia in the country is not considered safe.

Dense forests of Liberia, wet, some of the largest in West Africa – are alive with the chirping and singing of hundreds of birds, which are maintained by the company of forest elephants, pygmy hippos and other species filling wildlife throughout the forest floor. Along the coast, deserted white sandy beaches alternate with river deltas and tidal wetlands quiet lagoons, while increasing the interior of the plateau green mountains on the border of Ivory Coast and Guinea.

Dominica

If you enjoy hiking high in the tops of the mountains or explore the underwater world then Dominica is the place to go for those who prefer hiking boots over high heels and are content with a night life where the music is just the murmur of the forest. Dominica has a surprisingly long drive for such a small island, so it’s best to pick a point or two to explore instead of bouncing. If you can do in the mountains (hiking, bird watching, looking for hidden pools and waterfalls) or water (diving, snorkeling, kayaking), you can do in Dominica. Do not miss the ancient forests of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, home of another Boiling Lake and the spectacular Trafalgar Falls.
