When it comes to daylight, Finland can be a country of extremes. Travel to Lapland in June and the sun doesn’t set for a month. Return for Christmas and all you see for four long weeks are brief spells of golden glow beyond the horizon. Unless, of course, you get lucky and see the elusive Northern Lights. […]

This story of inexplicable terror happened at a haunted hostel in Northern Ontario on our drive across Canada. It is worth mentioning right upfront that neither of us is paranormally inclined. We don’t receive visitations from the other side nor do we discover messages from beyond on burned pieces of toast. However, on this particular night we were put through our paces […]

I’ve always been drawn to the forsaken beauty of the California desert, its highways that extend to the horizon, and discoveries just off the beaten path. About half an hour outside Victorville, on the iconic Route 66, the first opportunity to explore the strange world of desert art appears near Helendale. Elmer’s Place, or the […]

Angels Flight Zip Wire

Hurtling through the air on a zip line at 120 km/hr I lost all sense of speed or height. For a moment I felt like I was just hanging, suspended between the two mountains, over 800 meters above the ground. The Volo dell’Angelo or Angel’s Flight runs 1.5 km across a deep valley in the […]

Finland is becoming internationally renowned as the birthplace of inventive and often plain zany competitions. A relatively new craze gaining popularity is Finnish Air Tango or ilmatango. So far the most famous of the Finnish offbeat competitions is the Air Guitar World Championships. The event was founded in Oulu in 1996 and has since then become a worldwide […]

In Europe there is one little gem of an island that provides amazing hiking all year round – La Gomera. Compared to its more famous neighbours, Tenerife and Gran Canaria, La Gomera is a fairly unknown quantity for most tourists. A volcanic island the shape of an orange juicer, the highlands of La Gomera are perpetually shrouded […]

One of the pastimes I enjoy on the road is taking photos of memorable signs – be it billboards, traffic signs, stickers, posters, neon or even just random scribblings on walls. Some are funny (in or out of context), others clever, several just downright odd. Each pinpoints to a moment on the journey, working as a […]

Sometimes you need a break. Not next month, not even next week but more or less now. In fact, your left foot is already edging towards the front door. And just imagine: What if this time tomorrow, instead of being stuck in your daily routine, you were busy packing your bags with a ticket-to-go? You’ve […]

Free holiday accommodation on top of a mountain with spellbinding views of the Atlantic Ocean. There must be a catch, right? Well, only a minor one. Spain’s Canary Islands have long been Europe’s year-round holiday playground. But venture beyond the heavily developed beachside resorts into the nearby mountainous interiors and you could be worlds away […]

Since water out in the desert is in short supply, it makes total sense to take sound baths instead, right? Sure… wait, say what?! The desert in California is home to a number of extraordinary, and sometimes downright eccentric, operations. Some attribute it to geomagnetic forces, while others blame the sun that never stops beating […]
