15 tips about Malta

By | 2017-10-19T06:36:46+00:00 June 5th, 2016|

Already during the trip we agreed that we loved Malta. It was a four-day trip with a group of friends and this island (more exactly, three islands if you count Gozo and Camino), fit perfect for our mission: drive all around, have fun, chill on the beach, eat, drink, no drama. And here are my tips what to do in [...]

Island-hopping in Portugal this may. Stop 1: Madeira

By | 2017-10-19T06:37:18+00:00 May 11th, 2016|

In general, it is quite easy to drive on Madeira – it has a perfect speedway from São Lourenço to Ribeira Brava; the other roads are relatively good but winding and sometimes narrow. While Google maps didn’t work perfectly on Madeira, below is the map of our trip. I have marked the places we visited with the numbers and given [...]

Fairytale Gent

By | 2017-10-19T06:37:51+00:00 April 16th, 2016|

During our last weekend in Belgium we decided to go to Gent instead of Bruges and didn’t regret it at all. Gent is literally stunning: big old city area, cobblestone streets, dark-red tiled roofs… You breath the history in every corner. Less words, more pictures… […]

Mini-road-trip through Balcans

By | 2017-10-19T06:38:04+00:00 April 5th, 2016|

Easter holidays in Germany are pretty long: four days. “Why not to add another two days off and make a full-value trip through some of the Balcan countries?”, we thought and booked a round trip Berlin-Skopje-Berlin.  […]

Как поменять заграничный паспорт в Берлине.

By | 2017-10-19T06:39:05+00:00 January 15th, 2016|

Так как путешествую я очень активно, и россиянам почти везде для въезда в страну нужны визы, страницы в моем заграничном паспорте закончились быстрее, чем его срок действия. Встал вопрос о замене паспорта. Решился он довольно просто и безболезненно по сравнению с другими бюрократическими задачами. […]

Benvenuti a Napoli

By | 2017-10-19T06:39:35+00:00 December 19th, 2015|

A weekend trip to the south of Italy. Naples is absolutely worth it. Less words, more photos. The essense in 5 abstracts. The best view to the city is from the viewing point in the medieval Castle Sant'Elmo that is situated in the uptowm (you can reach it with one of three funiculars). From above you can see the island [...]

Paris, Paris… Cliché and hidden gems.

By | 2017-10-19T06:39:44+00:00 November 4th, 2015|

Third time in Paris. Almost all cliché highlights already seen. Several to be visited again: you can’t just avoid it – being in Paris and not seeing the Notre Dame de Paris or Eiffel tower. To climb it or not is another question. In addition to these overwhelming-touristy must-see places we included couple of “hidden gems” in our list and [...]

Weekend trip to Lombardy: Milan and Bergamo

By | 2017-10-19T06:40:10+00:00 October 8th, 2015|

With Milan we definitely don’t have a match. Last time I’ve been there it was over Christmas, all shops and restaurants were closed, it was raining and everything but Duomo was grey. Last weekend I decided to give this city the second chance, because, in general, I like Italy a lot. Here are a couple of my personal tips and [...]

A little Baltic journey: Lithuania and Latvia. Part 1: Lithuania

By | 2017-10-19T06:40:22+00:00 September 14th, 2015|

I’ve been always confusing the names of these two countries: Lithuania and Latvia. In Russian language they sound indeed very similar: Литва – Латвия. As soon as I got an opportunity and a couple days of vacation, I decided to feel and learn the difference once and for all. What it the best way to learn something? To try it! [...]
