I really quick glance. I do feel guilty sometimes when I visit a city and do not spend enough of time there to properly see it. Let alone discover back streets and feel the vibe. That was the case with Milan. It’s an amazing city (so I’ve heard…!) that has got plenty to offer. Unfortunately … More Milan – a quick glance!
Yes, that’s correct! The city was kind enough to let me spend a night in and enjoy Sunday on it’s record-busy streets! Why record busy? Well. That was Easter Sunday and it happened to be a day of celebrations and Explosion of the Cart on the main square! Also a brilliant weather all-round the clock. Plenty … More A weekend in Florence – Sunday (2/2)
I think I will not lie if I say that the city is one of the most picturesque cities in Italy (or the World?). Many would claim it’s the most beautiful of them all. There is something in this as Florence is one and only. And other cities are Florence-wannabe. I have heard multiple nicknames … More A weekend in Florence – Saturday (1/2)
The weather forecast for that day was dreadful. I sincerely hoped it would not rain as I knew a bit of a walk awaited me from the train station to the town centre (half an hour walk uphill). Of course there was an option to take a bus, but I could not call myself a … More Siena – a postcard from Tuscany.
This is it! I have made it. I can’t believe it took me this long to visit Italy. I mean this is like number one place to go when you are in Europe, right? Let alone when you have lived there for all of your life! Sigh… I started off in Liverpool, as usual. I … More Easy Pisa! A long awaited trip to Tuscany!
There is a city up in northern England that I was advised never to visit. Not because it’s dangerous (well, only locals can tell if it isn’t!) but because it’s seen as a tacky place to get solid drunk. But you know how it is – the more you discourage someone from doing something, the … More The infamous city of Blackpool!
When planning long trips somewhere it’s always worth checking if you could have a longer stopover to see something new on the way (for free, sort of). It does not necessarily have to be a stop with a bed. It actually hardly ever is – airlines would not allow this without a charge. But if … More Clash of cultures – Dubai
All good things come to an end. It is partly true. Nothing can last forever, except for experiences and memories and I chose to believe that. In all honesty this trip has provided more than I could ask for. Wonderful people venturing together through amazing places. No, I will never forget this. And if some … More A 500 mile long goodbye
We are slowly coming to the end of this short 10 days trip to South Africa. But the trip to the old continent would not be complete without a proper safari experience! Although I did not manage to visit the biggest and most famous game reserve – Kruger National Park – I have no regrets … More Ain’t no Africa without safari!
It’s time I move on with my journey through the beautiful country of South Africa. And when I went through the photos of the places I have been to I realized that the trip was a very fast paced one indeed. 500 miles (800kms) from Cape Town to Port Elisabeth and back in just 6 … More Deserts, rainforests and back to the Ocean!
