Playing a game

We were enjoying a beautiful day at the beach in Pionersky, when I saw a group of young people forming a circle. I had my camera ready to take a couple of photos. It was quite a lot of commotion and laughter going on over there. Curiously I watched them. They held hands and positioned their feet in a specific way. Then they started to move in a circular motion.

From what I could gather, the way they were standing was very important. Sometimes things didn`t go too well and the circle broke up. Then they would start all over again. It was fun to watch them.

One of our friends saw my curiosity and explained to Andrey to explain to me (they don`t speak English) that this is a popular game being played on the beach and is called a `Human Twister`. Go figure! They sure were twisting each other by the looks of it!

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.


Thank you for visiting. Have a fabulous day!
