This British-desired railway, connecting Burma and Thailand, was deemed to be too incredibly tough of an undertaking to consider, due to the hilly jungle terrain and absence of transportation and medical equipment. However, in 1942 - during World War II, the Japanese seized Burma and took control away from Britain and by October of 1943, “The Death Railway” - as it became known - was completed by the Japanese with no transportation between the workers and the outside world, no medical help, no advanced tools and very little food.
It is a heartbreaking story with grueling conditions of forced labor, including more than 60,000 Allied prisoners of war and about 180,000 Southeast Asian natives. Over 100,000 people died during the construction of the railroad, and - after Wold War II ended - 111 Japanese military officials who were connected to the Death Railway were tried in court for war crimes, 32 of which received a death sentence. The remains of most of the war dead were retrieved and transplanted to official war cemeteries.Read More

Can I travel to Switzerland on a budget? Switzerland is without a doubt one of the most expensive countries to travel to, so it makes sense that people regularly ask us if it is possible to travel to Switzerland on a budget. Good news: Yes, you can! We traveled to Switzerland in July and had to start planning about 3-4 months in advance to make our two-week trip affordable, but it worked - and we kept our accommodations and adventures quite cheap! Switzerland is a adventure lovers dream, and the landscape is simply mind blowing. No wonder it has been the filming location for a number of hits such as a number of James Bond…Read More
We recommend the 6-Day “Highlights of Egypt” Itinerary below, however you can jump to any of the sections listed above to piece together your personalized “Egypt Adventure”! Save yourself some planning and pick the Discover Egypt, Cairo & Nile cruise 6 Day Tour with tourradar. It does say 8 days on the tour page, but the first and last day are just transfers between the airport and the hotel. The cost is roughly the same as if you did it yourself, but you will have a knowledgeable guide to show you around, handle the logistics, and give you additional information! That’s how we did it! :)Read More
This itinerary of Scotland will bring you from either Edinburgh or Glasgow up into the Highlands for either 2, 3, or 4 days. If you only have 2 days, you will have to skip days 2 and 4, but it'll still be an amazing adventure! While we found decent value with the Edinburgh Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing and Glasgow Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing passes, we felt that the highlands tour groups were advertising one price but then charging double in the end - so we made our own self-guided tour. This self-guided tour may be the highlight of your Scotland trip, but it won't cost you…Read More
Wales sometimes seems to be a forgotten part of the UK. At least in my experience. I hear of people visiting or wanting to visit England and Scotland, and Northern Ireland as well as the Republic of Ireland. But I rarely hear much of Wales. As such, I didn't really know…Read More
