I came to Valparaíso, Chile, early in the morning after a 13-hours night bus drive from Pucón. Again, as many times during my trip in South America, I had the wrong map of where the bus will leave me and I had to figure out how to get to my hostel without the internet. Luckily, […]
There is just something about Alexandria, Egypt, that makes you like it! Maybe it’s the long promenade, where you can take a stroll and admire the Mediterranean Sea, or it’s one of the cafes where you can sit for a Turkish coffee or shisha and observe people passing by. It could be that it’s a […]
If you are travelling with low cost airlines in Europe, you will definitely fly into the Brussels South Charleroi Airport in Belgium one day. I have spent there quite a lot hours waiting for my next plane, to fly out and even one whole nigh, which I can’t really recommend. However, if you don’t have […]
This weekend I spent exploring German city Munich, the capital of Bavaria region. I was really lucky and had sunny spring-like weather and discovering the best spots of this city was an extra pleasant experience. So, what to do in Munich if you have a day and a half?

Though Hungary is Slovenia’s neighbouring country, I admit I didn’t know much about its touristic sites beside Budapest and Balaton. So I was absolutely positively surprised when I visited Eger, Tokaj, Visegrád and Szentendre as a part of agritourism tour with my work. The latter two cities are together making a perfect day trip from Budapest.
Who doesn’t dream of strolling the streets of Madrid, sunbathing in Barcelona, admiring picturesque Seville, eating pintxos in San Sebastián or running with the bulls in Pamplona? This list could definitively go on and on because Spain has so many marvelous places one visit just isn’t enough. Although I lived in Spain for a year […]
It is Christmas time in Bologna, Italy, and although the city isn’t as full of Christmas lights as one would expect their porticoes are amazingly decorated! Yes, they also have a majestic Christmas tree, lights above the streets, but porticoes with Christmas lights are the best part of Christmas time in Bologna for me. And […]
With approximately 61 km2 San Marino is the fifth smallest country in the world and a great destination for a quick getaway. Although it’s not part of the European Union you can enter the country without waiting on the border. From there is just a short drive to the top of Mount Titano and to […]
