In Juneau, I was first time in my life riding on a helicopter and landed on top of the Mendenhall Glacier. Then did a couple-hour glacier trek. Up close with glacial icescape was just amazing. Glacier Bay National Park was another highlight of our trip. Id wanted to see as many glaciers as possible before they disappear. ... (full story) (15 photos)

Lebanon by Aleksandar Dekanski (2200) 2010-08-01 - 2010-08-12
Prvih 12 dana avgusta 2010. proveo sam sa suprugom u Libanu, u poseti prijatelјu sa studija, Libancu koji je studirao u Beogradu, sada ivi u Engleskoj, a odmor je provodio u rodnom gradu Tripoliju (Trablusu, kako ga zovu Arapi). Zato je na boravak u Libanu bio sasvim drugačiji od uobičajenog turističkog putovanja. (21 photos)
Scenes of Cantabria by C A Grenville (45) 2012-09-23 - 2012-09-28
A week's trip through Cantabria - a beautifully green region of Spain - even after a very dry summer that reduced the rest of the country to an arid dustbowl.

Soko Banja by Aleksandar Dekanski (2200) 2014-04-16 - 2014-04-19
A short spring vacation in eastern Serbia. Soko Banja is the oldest and perhaps the most beautiful spas in Serbia! In addition to spa options, the environment is filled with picnic areas, beautiful landscapes, many natural wonders and historical monuments.
Unfortunately all the time it was raining, and nor have I visited all worthwhile, nor photos are so beautiful, as they can be. (10 photos)
