    Cologne and its effortlessly cool Christmas market

    Reaching Cologne has certainly proven to be an adventure for me but I surely loved all the people I met along the way to there. You can easily reach Cologne in less than 3 hours with a FlixBus from Amsterdam, so if you are looking for an escape, this small German city...

    3 days in Berlin

    Going to Berlin seemed to be a nice idea, given that we managed to find 3 free days in January, right after the holidays when everyone else is busy with anything but travelling. As you imagine, this spared us again from long tourist lines since visiting new cities...

    Day trip to Maastricht - Christmas Market

    I am back again with another trip in the beautiful Netherlands: Maastricht! I actually don’t know how big of a coincidence we managed to create with this trip, but right when my best friend visited me for Christmas, I was lucky enough to meet with another high school...

    Best things to do in Rotterdam in a day

    Even though Amsterdam was my home in my Erasmus, I think the article about it deserves a little bit more effort so I’ll start with the second best city of this country – Rotterdam! There has always been something special about Rotterdam. Even the name itself tells...

    How I save money for & during travelling

    It is true that the best things in life are for free, but I somehow grew up with the idea that traveling is for the rich because you imagine going abroad somewhere far where you will inevitably face a lot of expenses. It was and it still is a myth. Thinking about the...

    Day trip to Aveiro - 9 Must do’s and see

    I started my trip to Aveiro having in mind the expectation that I would finally see the ‘Venice of Portugal’ everyone praises so much here. I have already visited Venice before so I also imagined some romantic strolls around the canals, boats mirroring in the water,...

    Escape to Transylvania - Peleș Castle

    You know you are about to see something special if you are given plastic covers to put over your shoes. I don’t know how many locals would actually praise Bran Castle (where you actually don’t need plastic shoes so... ), but I know for sure that Peleș might...

    Trip to Valley of Temples - Agrigento

    After my arrival in Palermo, I was lucky enough to be invited to a spontaneous trip to Agrigento the very next day. There was no time for being tired since I was too excited to be there in the first place, let alone to be able to travel with locals who already know the...

    60 days of Palermo in a nutshell

    Even if I tried to sum up those 2 months spent in Palermo for an Erasmus Traineeship, I still could not manage to say it better than Plato: “In Sicily they build houses like they will live forever, and eat like they will die tomorrow. ” Source Last year, the summer...

    What's so similar between Portugal and Romania

    Bucharest and Porto are the capitals of two countries situated at the very East and West of Europe. Although situated at opposite corners of the continent, Romania and Portugal are not as different in culture and local’s behavior since they are both part of the Latin...

    Weekend away in Algarve – Lagos

    The idea for this trip came long before coming here, knowing that the south of Portugal has some of the most beautiful places for surfing or for simply tanning on the beach. The long coastline sprinkled with yellow-orangey rocks can be recognised everywhere on the...

    How free walking tours changed the way I travel

    A few weeks ago I had the experience of a free walking tour with my friend while we were in Lisbon and I was impressed by her enthusiasm, repeatedly saying that many people should know about these, especially students (forever) traveling on a low budget. I remember now...

    3 Full days of Lisbon

    With my last article I think I made my point about the delightful atmosphere of Porto (you can read about it here), but of course capitals always have something about them that transpose visitors in some sort of historical vibe because there were so many national...
