Additionally, traveling diaries and journals are the best way towards amusement. If you’re thinking of building up a travel journal creatively.

If you take a journal with you when you’re travelling, you may be able to explain ‘only the truth.’ Wherever you went, what you did or were eating, where you slept and whether or not you enjoyed it. You can leave it at that or, if you’re a travel blogger, it can serve as a good inspiration to write more complete blog posts once you’re home. Everyone stores so many notebooks are full of stories and diary entries from different journeys. This is essentially an extended version of the above where you can go further. Include stories that call on the 5-senses (taste, sight, sound, touch and smell). Also, what you experienced that day or amusing interactions with people that you have had.

Do not be afraid to include the less glamorous side-it ‘s fun to look back on hindsight too! If you’re artsy you may be able to make a travel sketchbook. This can be added to a bullet journal you are already keeping, or in a sketchbook per trip you are taking. Maybe you’re hiking on your journeys and want to capture the scenery in front of you, maybe you’re in front of a famous landmark like the Golden Gate Bridge, or it might be food that catches your eye.

Not exactly a on its own travel article, but perfect for adding to one of the above types. Adding an envelope to your travel book, or having one already included with it (this one has a storage pocket at the back!), means that you can put ticket stubs, receipts, postcards and other souvenirs inside as keepsakes. One of the best things about creating a travel journal scrapbook is that you can also make your own DIY travel journal cover by sticking maps, photos and ticket stubs on the front. You could also include polaroid pictures if you’ve got a polaroid camera. It comes with different brands and at reasonable prices.

Attaching photos to your journal would not only make it attractive but worth keeping. Even the maps would let you revive those flashback all over again. If you’re looking for a great version of a travel journal, go for the one with extra elements and shapes! After all, keeping memories intact is also essential for a healthy lifestyle.

These Are The Most Dangerous Roads In The World!

Published

on

Dangerous roads

We all have, at least once in our lives, thought of a road trip and/or of taking a long drive. Adding to the adrenaline rush, we have all wanted to hit a road less travelled. But what if we take a road that is less travelled for a reason? We list the most dangerous roads of all times that would scare the daylights out of you.

These roads are hazardous and treacherous even for the most experienced and the bravest drivers out there. Make sure to read this article well to keep your tensions at bay.

 

SKIPPERS CANYON ROAD, NEW ZEALAND

This narrow road was built as a product of the late 1800s development for the movement of gold miners. Due to its positioning over a running river with several steep slopes, it is a nightmare for most drivers. It clearly is not a two-way road and if two cars happen to pass each other, get ready for some nerve-wracks.

 

BR-116, BRAZIL, SOUTH AMERICA

Nicknamed the Highway of Death, the occurrence of frequent accidents due to quick weather changes makes it live up to its dark reputation. Another danger that lingers the highway road is the high volume of child trafficking cases, making UNICEF declare it as one of the worst areas.

 

STELVIO PASS, ITALY

This pass may appear scenic, but if you get lost in its beauty then you will have to face the perils of it. This pass is perilous because of its positioning 9,000 feet above the sea level and the innumerable hairpin turns that may cause a dizzying effect in your brain. Therefore, double check your brakes, drive at a low speed and never drink and drive HERE!

 

KABUL-JALALABAD HIGHWAY, AFGHANISTAN

A tour from this highway ensures no safety back home. The illegal trespassing by drivers with no licence makes them assume high speeds crossing other vehicles, leading to inevitable accidents. As if this wasn’t enough, the highway is a frequent target for the Taliban, who threaten the motorists as well as prevent any sort of development or construction works on the highway.

 

GUOLIANG TUNNEL ROAD, CHINA

Carved out of a mountain by their own people, this road wouldn’t tolerate any mistakes. That is why it is said nature is best when it is untouched. It took 13 workers and 6 years to form the tunnel out of the mountain and finally opened the route on May 1, 1977. Lack of constructive expertise reflect the uneven pathway and let’s not even mention the pitfalls during monsoons.

 

NORTH YUNGAS ROAD, BOLIVIA, SOUTH AMERICA

The roads changed from a path for mules to a path for vehicles. Regarded as the most dangerous roads of all times declared by the Inter-American Development Bank in 1995. The resume of this road describes itself as hazardous in all contexts: lack of guardrails next to 2000 foot drops, obscuring weather conditions from hot jungle climate to too foggy coverage and narrow pathways leading to increased risks of accidents. Dubbed as the road of death, fatalities are bound to occur here.
