Traditional boat building yards are usually situated right on the waterfront. And that’s the case on Lesvos, where Takis Psarodelis has been following this ancient craft in Skala Kallonis for over 60 years.

You can see Australian native animals at The Healesville Animal Sanctuary – an amazing place a couple of hours drive from Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. Here you will experience up-close encounters with a range of Australian wildlife, including kangaroos, dingoes, koalas, birds, snakes, and the strange platypus.
