Adlabyrinthempire Picks of the Week

I love reading travel sites and blogs to see what amazing places people are visiting and incredible experiences they discover. One recurring question that keeps arising though is how to make these seemingly once-in-a-lifetime trips possible and how to enjoy them more than once in a lifetime. The latest blogger to tackle this subject has created a great post to follow if you’re looking to make travel a more integral part of your life.


I’m not sure why, but lately I’ve been reading mentions of Azerbaijan everywhere. Friends are visiting, it’s on The Amazing Race and I soon found myself researching this fascinating destination. That’s when I stumbled upon this beautiful post by Paul that serves as a fantastic photographic introduction to the Land of Fire.


Packing has probably been an issue since the earliest days of travel. As modern technologies and conveniences progress, it seems that what to bring on vacation is still a daunting question. I liked this post because it’s a little quirky and includes some items one may not consider when planning a trip.


Humans are strange creatures. Many of us tend to get stuck in ruts and then proceed to complain without actually trying to change our conditions. Sometimes this is extreme, but more often than not it’s the small things in life that all of us need to change. This is a great, inspirational post to get all of us off our butts and doing something special with our all too brief time on this planet.

    Another reason for all the media attention on Azerbaijan lately is because Baku is the venue of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
