After a very intensive but extremelly rewarding trip to Niagara Falls I had plenty of time to explore Toronto. I did not know what to expect of the city really. Obviously I knew it for being the biggest city in Canada (and many still think it’s the capital city!) And of course for its landmark … More Toronto: a city to fall in love with (or in)
Yes, you read it right! A weekend in Canada! There was a sale (or pricing error maybe?) posted on one of the cheap-flights portals. I could not quite believe that I could go from Liverpool to Toronto for less than £200 and that was the temptation I could not resist! As I did not have … More A weekend in Canada: Niagara Falls
There are times when I wonder whether money can really give you happiness. I mean there are definitely things that you can buy that would make you happy for a while.

I arrived to the city center (well, its a center and not a centre !) late in the afternoon and it took me a while get to the hostel. The metro system in Los Angeles is rather ok, although the city is enormous and not highly built up – therefore you will not find metro … More Los Angeles! A beautiful monster city…

I would recommend to spend at least 5 days in the city, or 6 if you want to do Yosemite National Park (as shown in the previous posts). On the … More Let’s bike the bridge and off to LA!
This wasn’t a beautiful day. Cold, windy, rainy and probably the best place one could have spent it was home. But this was my holiday! And one of just few days in San Francisco. Plus I had already bought the ticket, so had no choice but to go. And to be honest, the weather added quite a bit … More Alcatraz
There is one thing that you realize when you are there. And that’s how small you are. This is at least how I felt. A wall 1000 meters tall (El Capitan) is something your eyes cannot even comprehend until you see a comparison. A rock climber for example. But look closely as they are smaller … More Yosemite National Park
Hello everyone! I had been planning on going to San Francisco and Los Angeles for ages. Never really had an opportunity or self confidence to do this. But something someday just clicked and I decided to do it. I knew that once I bought the ticket everything else would just roll on. And it had! Absolutely … More Let’s go to California!
