Let me introduce you to the "alternative green lung" of London, a solidarity-based botanical garden that serves as a café. And as icing on the cake, I'll write about my personal challenge to reach London on a budget and on a minimal luggage.
All the cities I recently went to, the places I enjoyed most, were projects that were initiated by neighbors, designed for everyone's participation to make the neighborhood more livable.

During their five-week long visit to Taiwan, Nicole and Jürgen circumnavigated the whole island.

In this article I will give you the first infos about a bike trip through Taiwan, covering itineraries and the bike rental.

At this point, I compiled a quick list for you, that might help you while planning your trip and also might give you some more understanding of the Iranian culture in order for your Iran visit to run smoothly.
