Caravan trip from Germany to Croatia

By | 2020-07-11T12:04:43+00:00 July 11th, 2020|

Going on a long trip during our parental leave, just the three of us, was not even brought to discussion: we knew that we would do it! We were playing with the thoughts of taking Route 66 through the USA or spending two months in Asia (Japan, mostly). Though the pandemic has significantly restricted our choices, we adapted [...]

Four gems of Slovenia

By | 2020-01-14T23:34:00+00:00 January 14th, 2020|

We have been on a trip through Austria, Croatia and Slovenia more than 2,5 days ago, but somehow I managed to write only one post about that trip: link. However, in my opinion, some places in Slovenia cannot be left out when you are planning your trip to that region; here are they: Ljubljana Ljubljana is the largest [...]

Exploring Moldova and Transdnistria

By | 2020-01-08T23:14:42+00:00 January 8th, 2020|

Why Moldova? In September 2019 we spent three or four days in Moldova followed by three days in Odessa, Ukraine. Why Moldova? We are big fans of the off-the-beaten-track destinations and Moldova is a relatively remote country in the middle of Europe very much neglected by the tourists. Besides, it has a growing wine-tourism industry and those who know [...]

Weekend getaway in Andalusia: Cordoba

By | 2019-04-13T18:21:26+00:00 April 13th, 2019|

We anticipated that parking situation in Cordoba will be as tense as in Malaga or Granade, therefore we googled the free parking before we drove to this city. We found free parking in the area of Torre De Calahorra. You have to be aware of the self-proclaimed “valets”, who wave you in the free slot and “help” you to [...]

Weekend getaway in Andalusia: Granada

By | 2019-04-13T10:25:22+00:00 April 13th, 2019|

Alhambra In Arabic, “Alhambra” means “Red Castle”. In the 9th century, Alhambra used to be a military fortress as it is located on a strategic point, with a superior view over the whole city and at the meadows. In the 13th century, the royal residence was established here; Alhambra lasted in that status until [...]

Weekend getaway in Andalusia: Malaga

By | 2019-04-13T10:25:54+00:00 April 12th, 2019|

For those who searches for a perfect weekend getaway, I have another suggestion! Have you ever considered Malaga as destination point? If not, you should! Because of direct flights, warm climate, delicious fish and seafood… and two other gorgeous cities 1,5-hour drive away, Granada and Cordoba. Malaga Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga Translated from Spanish, [...]

A weekend trip to Stockholm

By | 2018-11-13T23:20:47+00:00 November 13th, 2018|

…or STHLM, you will see this abbreviation frequently on the advertisement posters in the metro or buses. We were lucky to visit Stockholm in golden autumn. The second weekend in October this year was sunny and inviting for a long city stroll. In my opinion, Stockholm was a perfect idea for a weekend trip (under condition that you don’t [...]

Iceland: before you go

By | 2018-10-07T20:05:45+00:00 October 7th, 2018|

When you are planning your Iceland trip, your first concern probably would be the costs as Iceland considered a very expensive country. Indeed, even a short vacation in Iceland can be pretty costly. However even there you can find options to travel on relatively low budget. For that, prepare yourself and do research in advance: in the summer months, [...]

Girls trip to Iceland. Day five: Vík and Blue Lagoon

By | 2018-10-07T19:02:16+00:00 October 7th, 2018|

The last day of this trip was the hard-driving day: we spent more than 4 hours on the road and drove 300 km. Vík í Mýrdal One of my big wishes in Iceland was to see puffins. Vík í Mýrdal supposed to be one of the places famous not only for its black sand beaches and [...]
