About 7 years ago I visited Hong Kong for the first time and I remember that it seemed like a melting pot city where the eastern part of the western part was very different. I don't know if I have a memory distorted by the passage of time or it really was a wise appreciation, but the fact is that when I was there at the beginning of February, I found it much more westernized than in 2003.
When we consulted the issue of security with people who had already been to the countries we were going to visit on our 5-month trip in Southeast Asia, Oceania and South America, almost everyone agreed: very careful in South America. I, a person misled by nature with a personal record of losing or breaking 5 mobiles in less than a year - every time I buy them more shabby for this good reason, but it does not fail: the dumbest always lasts me -, I thought that in the Latin American countries should redouble the precautions.
Through Hostelworld, I get the news that Generator Hostels organizes a 3-night raffle, in private accommodation, at its London or Berlin hostel. In this way they intend to promote themselves among the backpacker community and stand out among other rival establishments. Another way to stand out is through guided, free, walking tours of the city that they offer from their hostels.
The calm waters of the Têt River One of the most popular excursions in the valleys of the French Pyrenees is the ascent of the Carlit or a walk along the Lake of the Bulloses.

Susana Busquets tells us about her travel experience in Venezuela. When you think of Venezuela, the first thing that comes to mind is Chavez, oil, miss-world, plastic surgeries, soap operas and how dangerous Caracas is. And while it is true that there is a bit of all this in Venezuela, it seems to me that all these topics hide something much better behind: a country of exuberant beauty, of great variety and with lovely people, although not at all too caramelized as one I might think ... Actually I ended up going to Venezuela by chance, an economic issue, to wait until the last moment to buy the tickets and find all the expensive flights, except one to Caracas.
