Wadi Mujib, Jordan – the funniest scary trip ever

I did not know what to expect. All I knew in advance was that I want to do Wadi Mujib. A colleague of mine described it as a “must try “adventure. His short note pointed out that Wadi Mujib is a beautiful canyon, with a slow water stream through, a level that barely reaches the

Bahrain - the island of don'ts

That’s my first impression of Bahrain. I just went out of the airport and already felt banned. What strikes the eyes is the series of prohibitions and do not do things welcoming the guest upon arrival.

"Be positive" life journey

  As new 2018 began, I learned what is the most modern wish for the year’s kick off – Be positive. It seems to me, everyone is turning to positivity now and, undoubtedly, it’s a promising start. I wasn’t an exception and received lots of “be positive” instructions. But they are definitely not relevant to
