Dominican Republic Hidden Gems - Intrepid Escape-33 - featured

Let me start by fully clarifying, the Dominican Republic is far more than an all-inclusive or party destination.

10 things you must do in Dalaman Turkey - Intrepid Escape

It was my first visit to the Muğla Province of Turkey, and like anyone, I had some preconceptions.

Obertauern-Skiing-Salzburg-Intrepid-Escape

Let’s start with one very important fact. Obertauern is the Ski Resort with the best snow depth in all of Austria! It’s often nicknamed the “home of snow” or Snobertauern, and it’s easy to see why.

20 things to do in Klaipeda and the Lithuania Baltic Sea Coast

After visiting Vilnius this summer, the Baltic Sea Coast of Lithuania was bumped up my list of places I want to see. It’s known locally as a stunning area and a bit of a hidden gem. It might not be the case in the neighbouring countries, but for us Brits it’s undiscovered. Based out of…

Things to do in Gdansk and Pomorskie

Would you believe me if I said that before this trip, I have never been to Poland? Sometimes I can’t either. I have so many Polish friends who would be mortified by that statement. The worst part is I’ve known it’s a bit of a sleeping giant in travel. Specifically, in terms of the outdoor…
