Special Interest Section: During my travel I visited many places with common theme, so decided to group those places in one post for easier access.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

World Heritage: Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. Stories and Photos from my travels to the Wold Heritage Sites around the world.

Festivals Around the World

A festival is an event celebrated by a community. Festivals are a great way to experience a destination in a unique and different way; as they provide ultimate cultural experience. Stories and Photos from my travels to festivals around the world.

National Parks Around the World

The idea behind National Park is very simple.. conserve and protect wild nature for future generations. Starting with the first National Park in the World, Yellowstone, I was fortunate enough to visit many National Parks around the world as listed in this section:

Former Soviet Republics

Former Soviet Union (FSU), also known as the former Soviet Republics or the post-Soviet states, are the 15 sovereign states that emerged and re-emerged from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) following its breakup in 1991. Stories and Photos from my travels to FSU Countries.

Exploring the Ancient Silk Road

The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes connecting China and the Far East with the Middle East and Europe. Established when the Han Dynasty in China officially opened trade with the West in 130 B.C. The Silk Road was central to the economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions between these regions.

Twelve days in The Pamir

Stories and Photos from my Twelve days journey through the Pamir and the Wakhan valley. One of the most memorable backpacking trip in my life.

The Caucasus Region

The Caucasus is an area situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. It is home to the Greater Caucasus mountain range, which has historically been considered a natural barrier between Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

The Balkans

The Balkans, also known as the Balkan Peninsula, is a geographic area in southeastern Europe with various definitions and meanings, including geopolitical and historical. The term of Balkan Peninsula was a synonym for Rumelia (European Turkey) in the 19th century, the former provinces of the Ottoman Empire in Southeast Europe.

Republics of Former Yugoslavia

Yugoslavia was a country in Southeastern and Central Europe for most of the 20th century. Yugoslavia was subdivided along ethnic lines into six republics and held together by Marshall Tito under communist rule. After Tito’s death, because of economic and political crisis in the 1980s and the rise of nationalism, Yugoslavia broke up along its republics’ borders.
