Have you heard of the Aokigahara Suicide Forest? The Aokigahara Forest in Japan (Japanese: 青木ヶ原) (known as the Sea of Trees in Japanese 樹海) is the country’s most infamous forest. The Junkai forest is considered to be the second most popular suicide spot in the world after the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. It is a popular spot for dark tourism as it is considered the world’s most haunted forest. Read for more about my experience hiking in this virgin forest and whether you should go. *TRIGGER WARNING.*
Amsterdam is a city to RELAX in. I’m not talking about the abundant weed, but about the gezellig (cozy) atmosphere that you’ll find in this city. Take your time to sit back to enjoy the passing bikes, unique architecture, and beautiful canals among the many things to do and delicious things to eat. I'm a proud Amsterdam resident and this is an ultimate guide to Amsterdam with all the questions that I feel like I’ve been asked most often. Find out how many days to spend in Amsterdam, get advice on what are the “must-sees”, where to stay in Amsterdam, what to eat in Amsterdam, which museums to visit in Amsterdam (and skip!), what to do before you arrive in Amsterdam, how to get from the airport to the city...and more!
As a born-and-raised Melbournian, I will tell anybody that listens that this is truly the best city! Melbourne has been voted the ‘most liveable city in the world’ by the Economist for 6 consecutive years now. However, Australia is not a budget-friendly country for travelers. With a decent cup of coffee costing between $3-$5, it can be easy to see where all of our money goes (You must have at least ONE world-famous Melbourne coffee!) This post is the attempt of a local Melbournian helping you navigate my hometown on $20 AUD or less a day. Includes tips for what to eat in Melbourne under $15 AUD and what to do in Melbourne for free. FREE downloadable Google Map that you can use offline at the bottom!
