Edition #2, 2018
“In the end, all people are
equal, and globe-trotting
Hi travel friends,
What you are looking at is the second edition of Wideoyster Magazine. The last three months we have worked hard and travelled far to give you excellent travel inspiration. The school holiday is imminent or has just started, so many of you have packed your suitcases, have taken the caravan out of the storage or are on your way to the airport or relaxing in the garden. Wideoyster goes along. Whether you’re on the beach of Spain, resting during a hike in the mountains of Switzerland, roadtripping somewhere in the world or chilling in your garden, this edition will be waiting for you to read until the beginning of October.
If you are travelling, open yourself up to the culture and the people as much as possible. It will enrich you because the journey and the new insights you learn will give you a different view of the world. In the end, all people are equal, and globe-trotting connects people and therefore societies. We have now learned that as seasoned travellers.
Do you know people who love travelling? Then give them Wideoyster Magazine as a gift.
And will you soon be travelling yourself? Do not forget your passport and your MasterCard. The rest will be fine. (:

Waddling through the Desert
The Indian Thar Desert
India is home to more than 1.3 billion people. Not all of them live in crowded cities with millions of people, however. In north-western Rajasthan we mount camels and head off into the Thar Desert. Course set for simplicity, tranquility and contentment. My...
Pretty as a picture
Idyllic mountain villages. There is almost an overload of them on the island of Sardinia. Just like cork trees, but that's a different story. Because of all its colourful murals, the village Orgosolo redefines picturesque. It might very well be one of the coolest,...
