Sri Lanka Route

Sri Lanka – the country is not very big, but rich in attractions. It has everything: nature reserves, and historical ruins of world significance, and tea plantations, and colonial cities, and beach vacations. Unlike the neighboring numerous Maldives, here on one large island everything fits.

When we planned our interesting route in Sri Lanka, we realized that you won’t see everything at one time, so you need to make a choice, and to make a choice you need to know what Sri Lanka offers for independent travel. As a result, we settled on two districts of Ceylon – Rajarat and Mountainous country, which we will tell in detail about. Why exactly and for what reasons did not include everything else in the route. Continue reading

Americans made a culinary trip to Azerbaijan

For the first time, a cultural and culinary tour for American travelers was organized in Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan is an abundance of ancient fortresses and palaces

Is Azerbaijan still Europe or is it Asia? If the question is relevant to you, we can safely assume that you have not been to this country yet. Travelers who have already seen Azerbaijan are no longer given to them – not because they found the answer, they just have completely different priorities. For example, as if to go here one more time or two and where else to go here.

But still, all the same: Europe or Asia? The answer of the geographer-orthodox: “Asia Minor” is as accurate as it is useless. In fact, Azerbaijan is Azerbaijan. This is Old Baku, where all the Turkish scenes of the “Diamond Hand” were filmed (it’s the same now, neither give nor take – Istanbul), and pictures of Baku New Street, especially the evening, can easily be mistaken for Central European. These are perfectly preserved Zoroastrian temples, which are older than many world religions. These are 40 recipes of an authentic Azerbaijani pilaf, which we rightly put in one paragraph with history and culture: firstly, it is also history and culture, and even what, and secondly, what delicious it is here!
