Travel ... on the trail of the Wolves

Author: Thomas Schroyen

For a lot of Belgians, summer stands for having a great time on vacation. Indeed, a study of Europ Assistance reveals that 65% of the Belgian population intended to take some holidays this summer. A 2% increase compared to last year’s results and 2% above the European average.

Yet, summer is almost over and so are the sunny days

If you are already missing those morning strolls along the beach, those afternoons at the pool reading Ken Follett’s latest bestseller or those evenings having a good drink with a breathtaking view, this article should bring back some nice memories or … inspire your upcoming trip. Yes, it’s never too early to think about your next holiday break.

Enjoy stunning views in the Azores with Thomas

Needless to say, the Azores archipelago in Portugal is renowned for its emerald green and sapphire blue lagoons, its flourishing nature and its peacefulness. If you’re heading to Sao Miguel, one of the Azores’ nine islands, you should definitely hike to Lagoa do Fogo and Lagoa das Sete Cidades, two spectacular crater lakes formed within dormant volcanoes. The stunning views you’ll get from both lakes are without a doubt worth the effort. And you certainly don’t want to leave Sao Miguel before taking a relaxing moment in the Thermal Water Pool

of Terra Nostra Park.

Embark on an adventurous trip in Thailand with Domien

If you’re looking for a pristine paradise, head over to Railay Beach in Southern Thailand. As mainland access is cut off due to high limestone cliff formations, you’ll need to hop on a short 15-minute ferry to reach this place of pure bliss. Expect white sandy beaches, backed by unspoiled forest, and delicious Thai food. Grab yourself a mojito and watch the sun sink into a stunning azure sea, dotted with limestone islands and longtail boats…

After indulging the delightfully laid-back atmosphere, the strenuous hike up to the Railay viewpoint is highly recommended. Once arrived, you are rewarded with spectacular views overlooking the Railay peninsula, which is also home to the adorable dusky leaf monkey. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a rare glimpse of one of their bright orange coloured younglings!
