Finding Incan Culture in Modern Day Peru

celebration, Peru

There was a time when the Inca Empire ruled over more than 12 million people, carrying its influence from Colombia in the north to central Chile in the south. It’s been nearly 500 years now since the Inca were conquered by the Spanish (in 1532).

Wherever you go on the East African safari circuit of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, the Maasai people are a near-constant presence.

You’ll see the brightly colored reds, blues and purples of their Shúka (sheets worn wrapped around the body, one over each shoulder, then a third over the top of them) standing out vividly against the landscape, whether in small mud-thatched villages, more modern towns or the vast open spaces on which they continue to graze their cattle, as they have for more than 500 years.

Top 10 Foodie Destination for Wildlife Lovers

Japanese Food

Combining delicious food and beautiful landscapes is a recipe or success so here is a look at our top foodie destinations around the world.

Last week a friend of mine said, “I don’t plan my vacations based on what to see anymore, but on what to eat.”

Once upon a time, most people’s world travel bucket lists were based largely on the iconic landmarks, museums, nature and wildlife they wanted to see. But nowadays, street food, markets, and cooking classes are also likely to be included in the decision-making process.
