Escape the Crowds - Go Off the Beaten Path

Fuck the crowds, right? :) Let's discover those countries with less popularity. Usually, this move turns out pretty rewarding as one doesn't need to deal with overrated prices, scams, long queues, bad quality of service, and so on.. I guess you experienced that already unless you are living in a bubble...? ;) Ok, so please find below a list of travel destinations we flew to and which fit into the off the beaten path section.

Less Travelled Countries - Go Off The Beaten Path

Less Travelled Destinations


Let's start with one of our favourite remote countries out there - Swaziland. Huh? Why should I go to Swaziland? Well, there are a bunch of reasons for that. First of all, it has a stunning landscape. Second, the landscape is stunning and third, you will be stunned by the landscape. I guess, you got it. It's a perfect country for outdoor people, looking for remoteness, wilderness, several hiking paths.. It's one of those countries, we dream of going back to. Check out our blog post about our time in Swaziland.

If Latvia is on someone's bucket list, then it's usually the capital city that wants to be visited - and it goes by the name Riga. But please go beyond that and make that 1 or 2 hour old fashioned train ride and check out the beach and quirky houses in Jurmala. Then make sure to head to the impressive Kemeri national park. A country with many gems that is just waiting for you.

Of course, it is not possible to ignore our home country when talking about the off paths. Slovenia is a lovely destination for any kind of outdoor adventures. If lakes are your passion, then make sure to visit Lake Bled and Bohinj for swimming, kayaking, boating, cycling etc. For the scenery itself, we recommend the beautiful natural reservoir called Zelenci - as pictured below. The hiking type of person would find the joy mainly in the northwestern part of Slovenia - there are mountains to climb such as Grintovec, Triglav, Storzic.. and let's not forget the sea side with the lovely Mediterranean towns - Piran and Izola. Head to the Slovenia Travel Blog to find out more.

I guess the majority of travellers like to put Norway and Sweden first when thinking of Scandinavia travel. Well, we encourage you to think of Finland - a less travelled country in the northern part of Europe. It is a tremendously gorgeous country with all its 168,000 lakes, lush pine trees, romantic sunsets, impressive Northern lights and very friendly locals. What about a kayaking trip just 1 hour from Helsinki? Or a winter escape to Rovaniemi for dog sledding adventures? Really mate, put this less visited country high on your bucket list.

Puerto Rico

It's hard to believe that Puerto Rico belongs in the section of a less travelled destination. Well, maybe not really among Americans but it is for sure an off the beaten path for many Europeans and Asians. The island which is basically an US territory and therefore not its own country offers untouched but pretty beaches, tasty food, amazing coffee, a jungle adventure, ziplining and good parties! Go and see it yourself!

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
