2. 5 Ski Resorts In and Around Zurich, Switzerland
This post on fine skiing on Switzerland’s Alps dates back to February 2009. If you are planning a winter trip to Zurich, one of the recent world’s most famous travel destinations, and want to ski, here you will find the Top 6 ski resorts in Zurich surroundings.

3. Top 5 Clubs in Dubai
Some advice on Dubai night clubs was posted last September 2009. Dubai is with no doubt an expensive place to go, especially when talking about nightlife. Also, given the fact that Dubai is set in an Islamic country, some restrictions apply for ladies. Be aware that public drunkness is also to avoid since it can lead you to prison. But not all is negative, as a place in which many rich tourists land, Dubai has a beautiful night scene, with a lot of bars, restaurants and fashion venues to amuse yourselves.

4. What is the most beautiful Greek island?
Considering the fact that there’s a myriad of beautiful Greek Islands, on February 2009 we tried to give you some more information on some of them: Santonirni, Ithaca, Milos and Paxos.

5. Popular Gay Night Clubs in Bucharest, Romania
A fusion of traditional rural values and new liberal ideas make up modern Romania. With the admission of Romania to the European Union, EU’s pro-gay policies were introduced. Since then, homosexuality is not considered a criminal offense but is also protected by anti-discrimination laws.  As a result of that, gays and lesbians’ community is growing and popular gay and lesbian venues have been opened in Bucharest.
