Why Iceland should be on your bucket list

The first few things that come to my mind when I think of Iceland are volcanoes, hot springs, insane landscape, and unpronounceable names. But the country is much more than that. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting when I bought the flights to this small island...

Good things to know before travelling to China

I've traveled around Asia quite a lot in the recent years, but China somehow differs from the rest of the countries I've been to. Now in no way I've spent enough time there or been to each and every city this huge country has to offer. Nevertheless I still think I got...

Beijing and Shanghai

Beijing As the 8th most populated city on the planet, Beijing can be hectic, busy, and smoggy. However, Chinese capital is the location of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace and The Great Wall of...

Santo Domingo

Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, remains the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in the New World. At the heart of the city is the Zona Colonial, where you can find one of the oldest churches and the oldest surviving European fortress, among...

Dominican Republic

11+ something years went by since my last trip to the islands of Caribbean. And while Cuba (previous destination)  might be the most famous among them, the Dominican Republic is a close runner-up when talking about popular vacation spots. Picture  white sand beaches,...

The Best Cities in Asia

I feel like I haven't been doing much traveling lately, which isn’t really true, as I've only came back from Edinburgh a bit more than a month ago. But having a trip out on the horizon to look forward to becomes like an addiction, I won't be the first one to admit...

Eating out in Edinburgh

I think by now you all know, how much I appreciate good food. One of my favourite parts about travelling to various countries is trying out their local food, attending the food markets or just visiting cafes and restaurants that serve delicious meals. During this trip...

Edinburgh

Edinburgh was always quite high up on my list of cities I wanted to visit. And that’s not just because it’s the birth place of Harry Potter, hence it gives off similar vibes to Hogsmead or Hogwards (big fan, right here). Some of the other reasons include the city’s...

India part 3: Jaipur

Hopefully you've enjoyed reading part 1 (Delhi) and part 2 (Agra) of my India series so far. The 3rd and the final corner of the golden triangle that we visited was Jaipur or the so-called Pink City. It is indeed pink if you really use your imagination here. As a...

India part 2: Agra

Situated on the banks of the river Yamuna, Agra was the second place we visited during our Golden Triangle tour (a circuit which connects the national capital Delhi, Agra and Jaipur). I would lie if I said we did not come here for the same reason everyone else does:...

India part 1: Delhi

Delhi is consisted of two entirely separate cities: the City of Mughals or Old Delhi and New Delhi. After Mumbai it is the second largest city in India, with a population of 20 million (cca. -  I don't think anyone knows the exact number) and also one of the oldest...

Eating out in Valencia

From local tapas joints and fancy bunch bistros, to contemporary dining and fish restaurants by the sea, Valencia has a lot to offer. Valencian cuisine is famous worldwide for its rices, such as paellas, it's citrus fruits and of course its seafood dishes. And as I...

Valencia

September's been a pretty rubbish month for me, so this trip to Spain was really something to look forward to. Replacing the cold weather and fastly approaching end off summer holidays with warmth, lots of vitamin D and a gentle sea breeze, was just the thing I...

A Day in Stockholm

Another post, another capital. After Copenhagen it's time to talk about Stockholm. I feel like, there aren't that many world famous landmarks in the Swedish capital as there are in some other places. However, the city itself is beautiful, perfectly clean, and...

A Day in Copenhagen

I've been quite busy for the past few weeks, hance the late blog posts. Before all the exams madness started, I've been doing a little bit of traveling, visiting a few of the Nordic countries. And I was pretty excited since I've never been there before. First one on...

The Gili Guide

Gili Islands might just be one of Lombok's most popular tourist destination and just as a fun fact, the world 'Gili' simply means 'small island'. Gilis are a wonderful destination to relax and soak up the sun and are made up of three small islands: Gili Air, Gili...

Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is an island located just off the southern coast of Bali. Although it’s only a short boat ride away from Sanur harbour and an even shorter one from neighboring Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida is still impressively untouristy. Tourist infrastructure is very...

Eating out in Bali

Indonesia is made up out of thousands of islands with different cultures, so no wonder its food is just as diverse. To complement the holiday experience on Bali, you would not want to miss out on some traditional dishes such as: Satay (marinated, skewered and grilled...
