Veneto’s architectural beauties.

It’s not hard to see why Venice has been regarded as one of the most coveted travel destinations in Europe for years – its entire area is a wonderful artwork, rich in culture and traditions. What is probably less known, is what lies just a little beyond the main city, in a stretch of land…

The untamed facet of Japan.

Reflecting customs and traditions bequeathed from one generation to another, Kyoto bears the iconic allure of the original Japan. And if neon-lit skyscrapers, slick anime and advanced technology are Tokyo’s trademarks, Kyoto, unlike its Eastern counterpart, is predominantly renowned for its idyllic gardens and poignant temples. But the city is not only that. As the…

A mirror to Venice.

Venice has long been the romantic traveler’s darling: getting lost in its maze of narrow streets and endless bridges is going to be the best part of your trip to the so called ‘Floating City’. Spectacular views, charming canals and one of the world’s most beautiful book shops. Find below our memories of this unique…

A grey metropolis and a sunny day.

Being back in the hectic UK’s capital has brought along lovely memories – London, once again, fully lives up to the expectations and it is easy to feel swamped by the sheer abundance of sights the city serves on a silver platter.

A dose of good luck.

Songkran in Bangkok. The car was barely moving as the crowd took possession of the street, dancing and swirling in a hectic movement. The heat was suffocating, penetrating my nostrils and leaving me in a sweat. New Year’s celebrations in Bangkok get heated, in every way.

Car-keys are optional.

Styrsö Island and Gothenburg’s beachside. Rock-climbing up a steep wall of granite, we strove to reach the highest peak, proceeding rapidly across the grey mattress stretching monotonously as far as the eye can see. By abandoning the well-trodden walking trial and venturing to the interior, we made a statement: the journey, not the arrival matters…

Gothenburg, fika and IKEA

A journey through Gothenburg’s major sights and “fika” culture. There is no English counterpart for the Swedish word “fika”. Looked up on the dictionary it refers to a break that practically consists of a coffee and a cake. As a matter of fact, that is correct. What is curious about “fika” is the untold meaning,…

Eastbourne and Beachy Head

A hiking trip from Eastbourne to Beachy Head. ON thy stupendous summit, rock sublime ! That o’er the channel rear’d, half way at sea The mariner at early morning hails, I would recline; while Fancy should go forth, And represent the strange and awful hour Of vast concussion; when the Omnipotent Stretch’d forth his arm,…

Venice: tips from an insider

Venice’s traditions: spriss and cicchetti. The train plods wearily down rusty rails, grumbling and coughing like a centennial giant. Familiarly known as “Vaca Mora”, it has seen the route Adria – Venezia for over 100 years, running through the idle Venetian countryside in its over an hour long journey. Old train stations follow one another,…

London: a city of contrasts

“Excuse me miss” Radiohead was pumping loud out of my earphones. “Excuse me” The voice starts getting annoyed. I turn. Look down. Just a step behind me on the escalator an irritated little man waves me off to make me slide further to the right-hand side of the escalator, pointing out the bold characters of…
