  The Mediterranean, and the countries that make form part of it, are all absolutely gorgeous, whether travelling to a popular city, or a remote island. The list of activities to take part in, is never ending however, personally I believe some activities beat others. There is something for everyone, the numerous activities will suit every taste. Beach lovers will feel in heaven, food lovers will take their taste-buds on an exciting journey and the history geeks can continue widening their knowledge.

What I really love about going to new places is that you wake […]

I believe that it is safe to say that the mall has achieved and surpassed all the early expectations. It is estimated that shopping centers originated in the 1920’s in California. If we look around us, you will find that shopping malls are everywhere and in these shopping malls there are a number of people in them. I have never met a person in my life that has not been to a shopping mall […]
