Antigua and Barbuda is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean Sea. Last year after the Atlantic crossing we spend a few days there. I wrote about how it felt to see Antigua after a long and exhausting sailing trip in this post yesterday and decided to write more about Antigua itself today.

Every year over 11,000 camels, horses, and cattle are brought to Pushkar. It is a small town in Ajmer, Rajasthan. The reason is quite obvious, to be seen and sold. The Pushkar open-air livestock market is held on every November in Pushkar and is one of the world’s largest livestock markets. Owners of ranches come here to buy and sell animals. And at the same time there is a camel festival in here.
Times zones, duration of flights, your seat number on the plane and many other things affect our comfort during a flight. Do you want to check-in your seats by knowing the plane model and seat plan beforehand?
Machu Picchu, Nazca lines and its relations with aliens , Inca civilization, the local Peruvian people with their colorful outfits, their dark skins and smiling faces are the main things you will probably remember about Peru. Beside these, foods like chifa and ceviche, pisco sour drink and more Inca ruins will welcome you in Peru. We only had to chance to stay for one week in Peru but I highly recommend staying for two weeks at least for anyone who is planning to visit this beautiful country.

Uniting with Nature
Feeling the wind that touches every part of your body, waves shaking you, sleeping under the stars, seeing different shaped clouds and shining Planktons under the sea during the nights, watching the flying fishes in the sea and the races of dolphins are just some of the best things you will witness during your sailing trip. All these things make you think of the greatness of the mother-nature.
In this article, I want to talk about the travel junkie’s nightmare that is jet lag. Jet lag can be best described as the biological confusion that reigns when the body’s internal clock is at odds with the one at the destination.
An example: You feel like jumping on a plane to New York, and Turkish Airlines flight no. TK3 on an A330 takes off at 7:25 AM. When you get off the plane it’s around 11:30 AM but your watch says 18:30 PM. For now, no problem. Yet, jet lag is sneaking up on you… At around 16:00 PM in New York City, Istanbul time will be midnight, and you need to be active when your body wants to sleep!
I decided to share our experience of crossing the Atlantic so I will try to give detailed information about how to cross the Atlantic ocean on a sailing boat and our journey and answer the most frequently asked questions that people throw at us all the time.
Pushkar is one of the oldest cities of India which lies on the shores of Pushkar Lake. The actual date of its foundation is not known but it is believed that Brahma created it. It is one of the five sacred dhams (pilgrimage site) for devout Hindus. There are many legends about its holiness. One of those legends is about the death of Sati who is the wife of Shiva, The Destroyer. When Sati died Shiva cried so much and for so long that her tears created two holy ponds. One is Pushkar and the other is Ketaksha.
