Last year I had a blast visiting Croatia from north to center in just 6 days. I didn’t actually consider it for a summer trip before this proposal showed up, but it was unexpectedly beautiful. The coastline is definitely worth a road trip if you have to go from one place to another – although it will take you longer than driving the highway. Chances are that you will be on the coast all the time, so take the road trip as an opportunity for more inspiring views. Most of the tourism in Croatia is based on coastal resorts and island related activities and you can guess why.
For Romanians Italy is a very popular and easy accessible country. There are daily low cost flights with prices starting as low as 9 Euros, so traveling there is as easy as it gets. And yet despite all this, I had never been to Italy. I think all my friends have, but for a while it wasn’t my priority. So here I was this year, wishing badly to fix this problem.
Everyone in this world can recognize Paris and relate to its charm, more than any other city in Europe. But my first time there was just this year. I don’t have a reason why I let this happen so late. I guess I associated it with a romantic city and that was not necessarily my type of travel destination.

Booking accommodation is not easy. I came up with a challenge for the team here at Ticket to Nomad Land: what’s the accommodation you’d book again? the one you liked most during your travels? We looked for a mix of experience and good price and came up with our favorites. Here we go.
Last summer, as it often happens, we had no vacations plans whatsoever. After a lot of brainstorming, we decided that for late September Spain would be a good option.
Winter is coming, some may say, and I’m dreaming of white powder, high mountains, cool ski resorts, and large slopes.
I am not that winter fanatic as you may think. I’m not ashamed to admit, I don’t like winter and cold. I’d go for a sweltering day than a freezing cold winter. But the mountains landscape and the adrenaline rush you get on the slope it’s different. We have a few options for skiing in Romania, but in Europe, nothing compares to the Alps.
Warsaw, Poland is more than just a historic city. Second World War was harsh to them and the communist regime that came afterward is not an easy one to handle. Although scattered from the foundation, now Warsaw is a vivid and modern city. For a good background, check this documentary website. However, if you’re in Warsaw during summer time, go out of the Old Town and experience the usual city life. Polish people have a thing for deckchairs, ice-cream and beer, so my personal recommendation is to lie down and enjoy the life.
London is probably one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Even though one of the most expensive, and recently plagued by one too many terrorist attacks, it’s still a top destination. It might have to do with the historical touristic attractions, the culturally rich background or the hip vibe of “must-see” restaurants, cafes and markets. Whatever your interest, there’s lots to do and see in the UK capital.
I had never seen a bison in real life before. I didn’t even know the difference between a bison, a buffalo and the Romanian term “zimbru”. So if you’re in the same boat with me, you’ll understand my newly found fascination with this rare and beautiful creature.
