Why You Have To Visit Bolivia in 2019

There are some tourist hot spots in South America and Bolivia is not one of them. However, after seeing this accommodation we have changed our minds…

Kachi Lodge domes looks like something in between Burning Man and Space Odyssey. Opening in February 2019, Kachi Lodge domes offer the comfort of a hotel room with a private bathroom, comfortable bedding, interior decoration and proper heating, whilst being able to be out in the wilderness under the stairs.

Inside the domes, a wooden screen has been mounted to protect the shower area, the ceramic washbasins and the restrooms.

Despite the baron look from the outside, the interior feels cozy. The double bed centrally placed for maximum view. A wooden trunk is placed on the side of the bed to host lanterns, while light wooden stools and a small ladder compose a minimalist set-up around the central stove. The décor naturally embraces the cold outside.

So if you are planning on doing South America, we suggest adding this place to the itinerary.

A Sake Designed Especially For The Australian Palate

For Melbourne, Australia based founders Yuta and Shar Kobayashi, Tōji Sake was designed especially for the Australian palate.

Acknowledging that sake has an acquired taste, the founders travelled throughout Japan studying (and tasting) a lot of sake from respected brewmasters and found a way to combine their love of traditional Japanese culture with the contemporary Melbourne food scene. The result is Tōji, a premium sake which bridged the gap between the classic Japanese drink and the modern Australian palate.

The price? $32 or available at Australian restaurants.

The Deplar Hotel, A Luxury Farm Stay in Iceland

The gorgeous farm stay hotel, Deplar, offers one of the most modest-luxury stays in Europe. However, up until recently, Deplar farm was a sheep farm and the original building still stands.
