Gavin Manerowski | Greece in the Spring time

Greece is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations, and as such invests heavily in its tourism industry. For those wishing to travel to Greece, like regular holiday goer Gavin Manerowski, the country offers a multitude of options. Although there is sunshine galore in the spring, there are areas in the high mountains, including the dragon lakes that tend to attract more of a breeze.  The weather in Greece can get extremely hot, and therefore a spring time break rather than a summer excursion might appeal more to the holiday goer. Noted Greek enthusiast Gavin Manerowski particularly enjoys the 5,600 species of plants that can be admired across the country.

Of course Greece is famous for its history as much as its present day appeals. The Ancient Greeks are largely renowned as one of the most intelligent collections of people to ever exist on planet earth, making huge discoveries about the world we live in, despite having nowhere near the technological advantages of the present day. Greek History can be followed back as far as the Stone Ages, with examples of Ancient Greek hunters being readily discovered and examined. Amongst the proud history of Ancient Greece is none other than Herodotus, a man known to many as the ‘father of history’. Today, we are able to learn about the Ancient Greeks and their time through his records, but also through things like temples, pottery and other objects of the time.

For people interested in Greece as a country, not simply a holiday location such as Gavin Manerowski it is important to look at the Economy.  A subject of ridicule in many of the EU countries, especially Great Britain and Germany, the Greek economy has faced some difficulty in recent years. Since adopting the euro, Greece has faced some difficulty in financial terms, and from 2010 onwards has been known for the “Greek debt crisis”. This debt crisis came about due to Greece and other countries borrowing large sums of money from banks without following the proper methods to denote this borrowing. The debt crisis continues today.

Gavin Manerowski | Being a tourist in America

America is a country, of course, but it is also a subject of conversation and debate to many all over the world. The country of America represents a huge global power, a political provocateur of all kinds of discussion across the globe, and of course a media-giant which inadvertently tells the rest of the world how to live their lives. The focus of this article will be on America as a tourist destination, a subject which is less often broached.

The first thing to say about America as a tourist destination is, the place is huge. America is an enormous country, and many of the states individually represent huge chunks of land far bigger than other holiday destinations, so the choice of what to do on your trip is huge.  It is this hugely varied selection that appeals to the masses of tourists who travel to America each and every year. Noted America enthusiast Gavin Manerowski has enjoyed much of the country, including the fine state of Nevada.

Nevada is famously home to Las Vegas, a town internationally recognised for its hotels and casinos, but there is much more to enjoy about this desert location than just the night time entertainment. The Nevada terrain is some of the most impressive on the planet, featuring huge rock faces, cliffs and outcrops all across the state. In addition to the natural wonders the Springs Preserve is a great representation of history in Nevada, and something of particular interest to seasoned travellers such as Gavin Manerowski.

The activities are near-endless, including opportunities for extreme sky-diving, group tours and even “creative adventures” that take tourists on stunning walks through the Nevada countryside to see the beauty of the desert and learn about the proud Nevada history.

Of course there are a multitude of other states for those with an interest in America, like Gavin Manerowski, to visit, but Nevada is undoubtedly a great place to start. America’s sheer size provides the opportunity to experience a wealth of climates and cultures all within one country, in this respect the country is largely unparalleled.
