🥇 Let's travel together #156 - Pestera La Adam (Adam's Cave) by @gabrielatravels

since my posts are 95% dedicated to hidden gems of Romania, there is no doubt that I've traveled in almost every single area of the country, but there was always one place where we always avoided going just because when people think about Dobrogea they often link it to the Black Sea and the resorts where you can go get a great tan but..that's all. Or at least that's what I thought. And having the mountains flow through my veins, I never saw myself that kind of person to spend a whole day on the beach without exploring the surroundings. But last year after we returned from our yearly road trip around Romania we also wanted to explore more this location so people have more alternatives when they want to spend some time on the beach. Needless to say that this time spent in Dobrogea we got to discover lots of incredible places from simple caves to a citadel hidden from everybody's sight, from amazing gorges to lakes and many more, but also spending a whole day (12 hours to be more precise), on a boat which took us to many islands and spectacular locations which left me speechless one more time thinking that we are blessed to have so many gorgeous locations in a single country.

🥈 Hiking the Andelys by @leaky20

Les Andelys is a small town in France that is located in the province of Normandy along the banks of the Seine river. The town itself is not all that special, its basically just a typical French commune, but the hiking in and around the area is really quite superb. A quick drive up a steeply paved road brings you to a parking lot that overlooks the ruins of an old 12th century military fortress by the name of Chateau Gaillard.

🥉 Camotes, Philippines: An Island of Adventures by @glecerioberto

Camotes, situated right at the very center of the Visayas group of islands in the Philippines, is an island filled with adventures just waiting to be experienced. I'm going to share with you my fun-filled two-day escapade to the island that cost me around USD40 only. I highly recommend that when you go to Camotes, you must visit its caves. There are a lot of them scattered around the island and some are small and easy to enter, others have underground pools, one is very spacious, and there are even caves closed to the public because you need an experienced guide to help you descend through it.

      Thank you for mentioning me!

      Oh wow, 1st place! It's been a while since my last time on that position, thank you so much! I'm happy you enjoyed my article :D

      Have you guys considered adding Hivesearcher integration, I believe people would be interested find more relevant or similar posts...

      Btw, noticed a lot of images are missing, perhaps could consider image proxy as fallback if image doesn't load or has issues ? Our website uses our own imagehoster and a lot of images loads from our proxy when sometimes not loading from other imagehoster instances, so good to have diverse options.


      Thanks for mentioning my article! Keep up with the great work! 🤗

      Thanks guys for the honorable mention 👍
