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!
I was a little sad to leave the city despite staying there for such a short time. And maybe exactly because of that? I did not have a chance to appreciate it in full glory (and full sun…). It’s only 2h flight away so I will definitely come back but only when it’s a little bit … More Last morning in Barcelona…
The city has so much to offer that my weekend trip could not cover even half of the main attractions and not to mention all the treasure off the beaten path! I tried to see the main sights and still retain some time for myself to get lost around. The city is linked by a very … More Barcelona fast forward!
There are times when I wonder… what to do next month, week, or… weekend? And ideas come along. This trip was planned well in advance though. I simply thought that weather would be miserable in UK in January, so a nice hideaway in Spain would be a solution. How wrong did it all go! I … More A weekend away – Barcelona!
