10 Best Places to Visit in Austria - Travel Video

Austria is a country that is as well known for its scenic beauty as it is for its cultural activities.

Here’s a look at the best places to visit in Austria.

Why I Don't Like This Country ????????

► INSTAGRAM? Join me:

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

What To Do in St Helena

This trip to the St. Helena took place from 15 - 18 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. I do not encourage anyone to travel now. #StayHome. Here's a video with my thoughts on the current situation:


St. Helena may just be one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. The Saints are some of the kindest people I’ve ever come across in my travels. Because I had such a great time, I thought I’d try something different for this video about St. Helena.

I normally make videos here on YouTube about airlines, but perhaps the most amazing part of aviation are the places it can take. Places like St Helena. So, in this video about St Helena, I’m trying a little experiment: Let’s check out some things on the ground in St Helena! We’ll explore some of the highlights of St. Helena and some of what I enjoyed while I was here. Let me know what you think about this experiment by leaving comments. I always appreciate feedback! And next week, I’ll post a more typical video about my return to the mainland.

St. Helena is home to epic history, out-of-this-world scenery, and incredible opportunities for intreprid travelers.

We’ll explore the infamous Jacobs Ladder, Napoleon’s two residences on St. Helena, some of the hiking available on the island, as well as some of the most amazing vistas.

This is my first attempt at a video about something unrelated to aviation, so I’d appreciate your feedback. I think it’s probably fair to say I need to expand my coverage of things like accomodations and food if I continue with this. Also, maybe I’ll do this on a separate channel. Anyway, let me know what you think of this first attempt. And, also, let me know if you’re heading to St. Helena once we can all travel again!

Flying from St Helena to Cape Town

This trip to the St. Helena Airport took place 15 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. This is not a time to travel, but instead...please Stay Home! Stick around to the end of the video for some of my thoughts about the state of travel today.

In this video, I'll share a bit from behind the scenes at the St. Helena airport as well as some scenes from the flight back to Cape Town with Airlink. But the real star of the show on the flight from St Helena to Cape Town was the approach at sunset past Table Mountain. It was truly jaw-dropping.

Watching this approach into Cape Town from St. Helena – undoubtedly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen from the air – was an opportunity to pause and reflect.

I have always taken great comfort – even assigned some of my own identity to the fact that, thanks to commercial aviation, I can get anywhere, anytime, in unbelievable comfort. Producing these videos about St. Helena has been a cathartic process for me. A reminder of what was possible not too long ago.

Of course, travel like this is not possible now. We’re each doing our part, staying home, washing our hands, maintaining social distance. These things are hard, we all know that. We miss being in the sky. We miss what aviation provides – that’s connection. And, stunning views like this. Views, I’m sorry to say, I didn’t fully appreciate before this crisis occurred.

Aviation brings the world together. A place like St. Helena – previously weeks away – becomes only a matter of hours from anywhere else on the planet. But, now we’re more apart than we’ve ever been.

We’re separated from our family, our friends, and the rest of the world. I hope we use this time to celebrate the small moments and to feel gratitude for what we can enjoy.

I feel for everyone who works in travel or people who travel for work. Your world has been rocked. These are strange times. But we know this: We know travel will return. Yes! It will be different, but it will return. Will travel be what it once was? Will the glamor be gone? I don’t know.

But I am sure of this: It will come back. Humans are explorers. We yearn to see the world, to seek new experiences, to make strangers our friends, to see new places. Commercial aviation will make this possible again.

I look forward to getting back in the air, to connecting with the world, as soon as it’s possible to do so. In the meantime, I’ll continue posting on this channel with the goal of bringing a little joy to you, along with a reminder of what was, and maybe a prediction or two about what will be.

Here's Wendover Productions' Documentary about the Airport:

The place where St. Helena found the true cross of Christ. Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem

Zahi Shaked A tour guide in Israel and his camera zahigo25@walla.com +972-54-6905522 tel סיור עם מורה הדרך ומדריך הטיולים צחי שקד 0546905522
My name is Zahi Shaked
In 2000 I became a registered liscenced tourist guide.
My dedication in life is to pass on the ancient history of the Holy Land.

Following upon many years of travel around the world, which was highlighted by a very exciting emotional and soul-searching meeting with the Dalai Lama, I realized that I had a mission. To pass on the the history of the Holy Land, its religions, and in particular, the birth and development of Christianity.

In order to fulfill this calling in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians. I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters)



Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, glide over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and see the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.

Places you should see when you visit Charleston, South Carolina / St. Helena Island / Chapel of Ease

Charleston, South Carolina is rich with History. On our first day in town, we visited St. Helena island's chapel of ease, then we ran into Coffin point praise house. We had planned to visit Botany bay plantation but it was closed for deer hunting season. End of the day we ended up at Edisto Beach

10 Most Isolated Places to Live in the World

Get more Tips here!

Sometimes we tend to exaggerate and say that we live in the middle of nowhere, but these people... they REALLY live in the middle of nowhere. And, for you to get a better idea of what we mean, here are the 10 most isolated habited places in the world.

1. LA RINCONADA, PERU
This is the highest human settlement on earth. You can find it at 17,000 feet above sea level in the Peruvian Andes. It has a population of 50,000 and their economy relies on the gold they mine from nearby gold mines. The town lacks plumbing and sanitary drainage systems but does have mercury contamination from the mining activities as well. So, that’s a hard
place to live in.

2. CHANGTANG, TIBET
It's known as The Roof of the World, at 9,000 feet. The winters are cold and Arctic-like.
They live as nomadic pastoralists, being known as 'Changpa', or 'Drokpa' together with snow leopards and yaks. Ah, and, if you want to go there, you’ll need a permit to enter the area.

3. VILLA LAS ESTRELLAS, CHILE
It has a summer population of 150 and a winter population of 80. There is a ‘Correos de Chile’ post office staffed in the summer by a postal worker and by the command of the base in the winter. And they even have a Villa Las Estrellas Primary School with 3 computers AND internet access! (that part is actually quite surprising…)

4. EDINBURGH OF THE SEVEN SEAS, SAINT HELENA
It's the most remote permanent settlement on Earth, being 2,173 kilometres from the nearest other human settlement, on Saint Helena. In 1961, the whole population left because of the eruption of a volcano, but most of them came back and rebuilt the place in 1963.

5. SUPAI VILLAGE, ARIZONA
This is the most remote community in the United States being the only place in the United States where mail is still carried out by mules. Located within the Grand Canyon, it is only accessible by foot, pack animal or helicopter, and as of the 2010 census, the CDP had a population of 208.

6. COOBER PEDY, AUSTRALIA
This is the opal capital of the world because of the quantity of precious opals that are mined there. The name Coober Pedy comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means boys' waterhole. Visitors attractions include the mines, the graveyard and the underground churches. And there are several motels offering underground accommodation

7. LONGYEARBYEN, NORWAY
This is the world's northernmost settlement of any kind with more than 1,000 permanent residents. They live a combination of an Arctic climate tempered by the North Atlantic Current, and experience midnight sun on half of the year and polar night the other half, so it's
a bit crazy. Then they have strange laws such as ban on cats, a restriction on how much alcohol an individual can purchase on a monthly basis, and a requirement that any individuals venturing outside carry a rifle for protection against polar bears. Also if you die there they'll have to take your corpse to another town, they can't bury you there because your body will stay forever.

8. PALMERSTON, COOK ISLANDS
There is no safe entry for large ships and it enjoys a tropical climate but is exposed to severe tropical cyclones. 62 people live in Palmerston, all but three descended from English sailor William Marsters so there are still many family links and common ancestors between these atolls, because William Marsters and his three wifes had quite a large family of some 23 children, whose descendants now inhabit Palmerston.

9. SIWA OASIS, EGYPT
This is an urban oasis between the Qattara Depression and the Great Sand Sea. It is one of Egypt's most isolated settlements with about 33,000 people, mostly Berbers, who developed a unique culture and a distinct dialect called Siwi. It's the home to an oracle of Ammon, where you can still visit the ruins.

10. WHITTIER, ALASKA
In 2016, they were 214 people living there. It is very popular with tourists because of its
abundance of wildlife and natural beauty. Just imagine, Whittier is located within the
Chugach National Forest, the second-largest national forest in the U.S. However, the only land access is through the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, a mixed-use road and rail
tunnel.

Do you know any other isolated habited place?

Comment below!

What I found on Mt. St. Helens 37 years after the eruption

This has been amazing to explore! Climbing to the top of Mt. St Helens and looking down into the massive crater below was a truly amazing bucket list item for me. It was the hardest climb of my life, but absolutely worth it. However I had no idea of the unbelievable magnitude of destruction the eruption left below the mountain. St. Helens erupted May 18th 1980 with such force that it changed the surrounding landscape and destroyed everything in it. Finding all the mangled abandoned trucks still sitting on the county side and walking through the lava tubes was just as incredible as being able to finally climb to the top of the mountain to see it for myself.

Transatlantic Sailing Voyage. Exploring St. Helena Island. A Jewel in the South Atlantic.

Ep198. In this episode of Cruising Off Duty, we continue our Transatlantic sailing voyage on the 50' (Xquisite X5) Catamaran. We completed our sailing passage to St. Helena Island, and now it is time to explore the Island. There is so much to like about St. Helena.
It is clean, the people are friendly and It is well worth the effort to get there.

Transatlantic Sailing from St Helena Island toward Brazil. Reflect on the places we visited so far.

Ep199. In this episode of Cruising Off Duty, we continue our Transatlantic sailing voyage on the 50' (Xquisite X5) Catamaran. We have sailed away from St Helena Island to complete our 12 days passage to Brazil. It was decided we will head to an Island called Fernando De Noronha. We have completed more than half of the total voyage from Cape Town to the Caribbean so I thought it would be a good time to explain what I liked and some things I didn't like at each of the various spots we have visited.

Top 10 Countries to Visit in 2016 | LONELY PLANET Best In Travel Summary

Hey Guys!

I know there are so many travel recommendations online, it’s often hard to tell which ones are reliable and up to date!

But, when LONELY PLANET, undoubtedly the best travel guide in the world, releases their yearly travel recommendations ‘Best In Travel 2016’, you can start booking your holidays without looking any further.


Best in Travel 2016 includes top 10 countries, top 10 cities and top 10 regions, with number one as the most ‘travelable’ place for the coming year.
For 2016, the number one place was honored to Botswana (Country, South Africa), Kotor (City, Montenegro) and Transylvania (Region, Romania).

Let me tell you the best things about this year's Best Countries as well as what my favorites are from the top ten list. Tomorrow, I will share with you the Best Cities and Thursday - Best Regions! Stay Tuned!


BEST COUNTRY TO TRAVEL IN 2016:

LONELY PLANET: Botswana
If you are anything like me, you are dying to discover Africa but have no idea which one of the countries to go to. You want to do a safari, see what locals really live like and see a National Park without getting mugged? Well, looks like Botswana could be our best bet. It does not only have a safe and stable economy, it is also one giant nature reserve with movie-like safaris and breath-taking river deltas (world famous the Okavango Delta).
Best time to go: May to August
Price: Not too bad, with a lot of airlines offering a return ticket for under $1500 from LAX.

AGGIE IN HER SHOES: Palau
I lived in 3 out of top 10 countries and so I feel like a bad mother choosing a favorite out of her kids. Probably that is why my vote goes to Palau, a country consisting of 250 islands just North of Papa New Guinea. The more I learn of Palau, the more I become intrigued. Even tough much further than Bora Bora, the flights are considerably less expensive (from $1400 return from LAX as opposed to $2200 to the French Polynesian getaway) and the convenience of the US dollar as the national currency and English as the official language is yet another plus (it is a presidential republic in free association with the US). It seems like Hawaii might have some serious competition, especially among savvy divers and snorkelers looking for a perfect dive in a place their friends have never even heard of! #theUltimateDestinationForTravelSnobs

Here’s a full list of the Lonely Planet’s BEST IN TRAVEL 2016 as seen on their website.

TOP TEN COUNTRIES - BEST IN TRAVEL 2016
1. Botswana
2. Japan
3. USA
4. Palau
5. Latvia
6. Australia

2. Quito, Equador
3. Dublin, Ireland
4. George Town, Malaysia
5. Rotterdam, the Netherlands
6. Mumbai, India
7. Fremantle, Australia
8. Manchester, England
9. Nashville, USA
10. Rome, Italy

TOP 10 REGIONS - BEST IN TRAVEL 2016
1. Transylvania, Romania
2. West Iceland, Iceland
3. Valle de Vinales, Cuba
4. Friuli’s wine regions, Italy
5. Waiheke Island, New Zealand
