Japan is known by some as the land of strange where cultural shocks abound. Techie geek culture, rental kimonos, awesome infrastructure, colorful neons, and silent temples. It is. But all of these only hit you when you get there. You can read manga, look at animes and listen to music. It’s not the same, you just need to be there, I’d say visit it at least once in your lifetime.
I’ve been itching so badly to write this post. My boyfriend and I both love Greek food! And we both agree there’s something really special about it. Because although it’s not exotic like Thai food or pretentious like a Michelin restaurant menu, it’s just as amazing. It’s simple and fresh and oh so tasty. And Crete hasn’t disappointed in this area either. We had some of the best food on the island. And now I am going to tell you where, but most important what to eat when in Crete.
You’ve heard me say this a lot: I love exploring a new place through its food. And New York was no exception. I had heard a lot about the really good pizza and bagels and all the amazing restaurant. So I was so excited and super curious to try everything and see if it compared to London for example.
Traveling in the United States from Eastern Europe takes a lot of time and money, and it involves some differences you may not be used to. In 2 weeks, 5 states, 3 time zones, I noticed a few details you may find interesting or useful for a first trip.
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.
After coming back from England, I wanted to dedicate an article just to British food. And that’s because I think it still has a bad reputation that is not accurate anymore. There might have been a time when the British cuisine meant fish and chips, Sheppard’s pie or breakfast made up of sausage and beans. But that’s not the case anymore.
Whenever I’m visiting another country I love to emerge in the local culture. I find there’s no better way of doing that than indulging in the local cuisine. Ok and probably visiting museums and stuff… but I love food so for me, that’s one of the priorities. Thassos was no exception. Greek food is so good! And that’s why I’ll take you on a gastronomical tour of the island.
I had been planning a Malta getaway forever, it finally happened this year in July. My go-to advice: visit during the winter and don’t forget your phone charger!
Malta is a 316 sq km Instagram perfect archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. It lies south of the island of Sicily, Italy, and has close ties with the United Kingdom, the French and, of course, Italy. It’s a must see for those who love beaches and clear blue waters, but also those who enjoy digging up history tidbits. But let’s start the trip at the airport.
Christmas is my favorite holiday! It’s also my boyfriend’s birthday and the time of the year when we split our time between his family and mine.
This year has been filled with both wonderful events and challenges, so I thought it would be the perfect time for a change and a little surprise. That’s how I decided that for a Christmas/ birthday present I would get tickets to visit my brother in Amsterdam. I’ve never been to Amsterdam before, so it was all new for both of us and although our main goal was spending time with my brother and sister in law, I admit I was a bit thrilled we had a couple of days to explore the city on our own.
