Daungan in Gingoog City

“It's twilight. It’s the safest time of day for us. The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don’t you think?”

GUEST POST| 5 Lesser Known Cruises for the Cruise Holiday Lovers

If you've been on a cruise or two, chances are you’re hooked. It’s easy to fall in love with this style of holidaying, the relaxation that comes with not having pack and unpack, a new site to explore every day, and the comfort of all-inclusive meals, accommodation, entertainment and activities. For seasoned cruise travelers, we've picked five lesser-known cruises, to inspire you when you go to book your next holiday. 


The Antarctic Circle may not be your first thought for a cruise holiday, but it offers a lot of draw cards. For starters, the ship is small, and custom-built for forging through icy waters and rough seas. A smaller ship equals a more intimate holiday; perfect if you’re tired of the crowds that pack the larger, mainstream cruise lines. Antarctica cruises typically attract adventure travellers, so if it’s adventure you seek, you’ll be in good company. Cruises to Antarctica run from October to March, and summer days offer up to 20 hours of sunlight per day.

GUEST POST| Independent Operator vs. Household Name – for your Sailing Holiday Choices

The sailing & Yachting industry, like any other sector of the Leisure Travel Market offers consumers plenty of choice whether this is flotilla sailing, bareboat charter or fully crewed charter.

For many the comfort and security of booking with a household name, owned by one of the two gigantic multinational corporations that dominate the UK travel industry is a reasoned choice. The arguments for are financial security, an assumption that they will adhere to the highest safety standards and an expectation of a reasonable quality of yacht and good service from resort staff.

GUEST POST| Luxury Virgin Campsite in Kenya

If you do not like space travel offered by various companies, you can always be guests for a tented holiday in Kenya. Certainly not a campsite of a single star since it is a kind of proposal out of the line of business of the head of the Virgin. But a sort of Glamping for wealthy tourists, a safari camp called Mahli Mzuri and located 240 kilometers from Nairobi.

Among the recommended activities for guests of Mahli are of course the safari (preferably photographic) in Motorogi and Olare Orok conservancies, a tour to discover the Masai villages and the days spent between spas and infinity pools. You can also finish your days with outdoor barbecue or picnic with champagne since they offers a wide variety of camping tables.
