Tour de France 2012: Eyeing the Yellow

The quest for next year’s Yellow Jersey is going to be one steep ride.

It seems like just yesterday 34-year-old Cadel Evans assumed the highest step on the podium on the Champs-Elysees, becoming the first Australian to win the 2011 Tour de France title.

However, the Tour’s 99th edition just got one step closer after the announcement of the race’s 2012 routes at the convention center in Paris. The 2012 Tour de France will bring fiercer mountain climbs and longer time…

Problems with Hotel Booking Engine and How They Were Fixed

I've been a big fan of Priceline and especially their company assumed since Agoda was owned by Priceline too, it would be good as well.

Agoda is based in Asia, but now they list hotels all over the world like the other booking sites.

I recently booked two hotels in the EWR area of Newark NJ.First because they were a little cheaper and second because I wanted to get some more experience with them, since I'm going to travel in Asia more in the coming years and… Continue

Kites of Sumpango

Small town near Guatemala City and Antigua lives for the Festival of gigantic kites. This tradition exists in some parts of Guatemala for a long time now. To be there on Day of the dead is quite a unique experience...

Idea to make gigantic kite, more than twenty meters in diameter that will never fly may sound crazy. But, when you come to the festival, it seems so logical and nice; colors, pictures and messages that can be seen on every single one of the kites exhibited here create…
