China - it offers adventure amidst Amazing Flora

I fell in love with China when backpacking there a few years back, a truly great place for people looking for soft independent travel and moderately strong culture shock. My personal experience was rich and diverse, mostly in Yunnan and Guangxi; one thing I particularly noticed was the variety of both flora and fauna. From deserts to lush tropical forests, one of China's richest treasures is its plant life.

Uttar Pradesh

Tulum, Mexico. Fantastic Mayan ruins and loads of tourists.

“Tulum, Mexico” If you dont mind the crowds a great place. But in Google Images I challenge you to find a photo of the ancient Mayan ruins crowded with people and yet the reality is that, when you visit the site, or any other world famous tourist attraction, it is almost impossible to look anywhere (unless out on the ocean horizon!)

The last bus to Rasnov perhaps it wasn't but as with many public transport hops in unfamiliar territory Sarah’s tale of her journey to Rasnov has that feel of destiny about it. There seems to be some inescapable questions that haunt you whilst on these journey’s; Are we on the right bus? Why are we in the middle of nowhere? We have obviously got on the wrong bus, is there one going back tonight? Why are we back where we started? Who knows where we are, but does it really matter? Sarah will perhaps open your eyes to a quiet Transylvanian town, that might be, perhaps, maybe, worth a visit one day!

The Yucatan - Mexico

A fantastic playground where if you have the spirit you cannot fail to find adventure. The Cenotes of Yucatan are one particular draw, used by the ancient Mayan’s for freshwater and sacrifice they believed they were portals to the afterlife, as evidenced by the human remains and gold offerings.
