If you’re a passionate travel lover, then there’s a good chance that you’ll want to explore more exotic locations in the world. However, if you’re like me, you might also want to avoid the same places the masses go to.
Many places still offer wildness, adventure, and natural beauty without crowds. Ideally, we should find places that are generally enjoyable and reasonably safe. Even if we encounter surprises while visiting these places, we should still try to enjoy them.
