What to do and see in Djibouti, Africa

Along the deep blue shores of the horn of Africa is small nation that's full of undiscovered experiences: Djibouti.

Located between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia, this destination might not be one you had thought to visit, but thanks to strong French and US ties, the country is a place of calm in the middle of a somewhat turbulent region. Here you can safely get to know this one-of-a-kind location.

Extraordinary Djibouti
Relatively limited in terms of tourist trade and international investment, Djibouti does not see huge amounts of foreigners visiting its shores, which is a shame, given the beautiful, yet magnificently alien sights and landscapes located throughout.

Destination Guide: Frankfurt, Germany

Sitting in the heart of central Germany, Frankfurt (or as it's known in German, Frankfurt-am-Main) is a vibrant capital for business and finance. It is best known for hosting some of the world's largest tradeshows, however there is a lot more to Frankfurt than plentiful business opportunities, and the city is a great place to explore.
