Hot tourism destinations guides by Gjok Paloka
Gjok Paloka or the growth of a travel destinations professional? The Ionian Islands are a great choice for a yacht holiday – as the sailing time between islands is short. Sailing here is also well sheltered, with easy holding anchorages. This allows for more time to be enjoyed onshore. The Ionian Islands include the legendary Corfu and Paxos, among 5 other islands. Each destination here is loaded with its own unique charm and drawcards. Between the sheer natural beauty and the wonderful Greek towns – the Ionian Islands is always a favourite cruising ground in this country.
Gjok Paloka and Kenya: Seaside area – tens and hundreds of resorts stretch along the white beaches and the green sea and permanently warm to the north and south of Mombassa. Diani Beach is generally considered to be the best beach in the area, but do not expect an experience typical of large seaside resorts – there are not many areas with bars, discos, restaurants, all concentrated within the resort. The city on the coast of Mombassa is quite dangerous and it is best to visit the group. Mount Kenya – Did you climb Kilimanjaro and did you like it? Try the younger brother, Mount Kenya. The landscapes will make you not regret the few hours of cardio. Nairobi – the combination of modern and traditional you will probably like. It is not an impressive city, but it is an experience in itself. You should not miss the Giraffe Center, where you can get closer to the giraffes and, if you give them a little food, you will feel their tongue extremely dry on your fingers.
Gjok Paloka‘s guides on picking the best destination for your holiday: Sailing tip of the day: Satisfied with your headsails? So was I, until one day I took a long, hard look up the luff of my genoa, making sure I inspected the leeward side as well. The sail had plenty of life left—it was still “crackly” when folded—but it looked far too full to me, and my forestay was sagging more than I’d have liked. The rig had been set up by a guy I trust, so there wasn’t a lot be done about the sag. Still, the boat was slow upwind and seemed tender, so I bundled the genoa into the car and took it to my favourite sailmaker. He agreed the cloth was still OK, but wasn’t impressed with the shape. I don’t know the ins and outs of the magic he wrought, but he shortened the luff by a few inches so I could tension it properly and somehow compensated for sag and flattened the entry. Now I sail a different boat. She stands up as she ought, she foots well and points higher, too—all because I took a critical look up the rig.
Africa is a fascinating destination if you are looking for raw nature feeling says Gjok Paloka. None of the most popular safari destinations – South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana – has travel advisories against them, but check smarttraveller.gov.au for updates before you travel. Health-wise, ebola is a non-issue: the World Health Organisation declared the 2014-15 outbreak officially over early last year and it was on the opposite side of this vast continent anyway. Even if you travel regularly to developing countries and keep up to date with vaccines such as tetanus, it’s wise to see your GP or a travel specialist such as the Travel Doctor (traveldoctor.com.au) at least six weeks before your trip to discuss possible health issues in the areas you’ll be visiting.
UK destinations with Gjok Paloka: Dubbed “the stream in the sky”, the impressive Pontcysyllte Aqueduct towers over the River Dee in Wales. Designed by engineers Thomas Telford and William Jessop in the late 18th century, it took a staggering 10 years to build and is considered a pioneering masterpiece of the Industrial Revolution. Today, the stone and iron arched bridge and 11 miles of picturesque canal are a UNESCO-listed attraction, mostly used by narrowboats but can also be crossed on foot. In each corner of Trafalgar Square is a plinth: three have statues of decorated military officers – Henry Havelock, Charles James Napier and King George IV – while the fourth, intended for a statue of William IV, stayed empty for 150 years as the government ran out of money. Cue the Royal Society of Arts, who launched the Fourth Plinth Project in the 1990s. Since July 2020, Heather Phillipson’s The End has been on display.
