    Experience in Asunción - Paty's Paraguay

    What's it like to live in Asunción? Would you recommend it? How is it? Asunción is a small but very beautiful city; it has areas which are really picturesque and colonial and areas which are fairly urbanised and modern. Everything is pretty close in regards to...

    Experience in Montevideo, Gastón's Uruguay

    What's it like to live in Montevideo? Would you recommend it? How is it? It's a beautiful city. I recommend living there but I also think that there are better places (I have to be honest). There is a gorgeous boulevard (Rambla) which is ideal for a jog or walking or to...

    Experience in Quito, Pablo's Ecuador

    What's it like living in Quito? Would you recommend it? How is it? Well, Quito is a beautiful city, its climate varies so you can have really sunny days and a little while later, there could be heavy rain. It has a large amount of colonial architecture and tourist...

    Crossing the pond (III)

    Having already visited the city of Caracas and one of the most beautiful zones in all of the Caribbean sea with paradisaical beaches, that only left me with one more setting to visit which characterises Venezuela - The Amazon rainforest. Venezuela owns a small part of...

    Crossing the pond (II)

    One of the things that I learnt whilst travelling around Venezuela is the extent to which you get sick of taking planes to go from one side to another. Firstly, I had already endured 9 hours of flying to get to Caracas, including a two hour layover in Lisbon. At that...

    Crossing the pond

    There are trips that only happen once in life and for me, that was in 2013 when, for the first time in my whole life, I could travel across the Atlantic Ocean to go to another continent. For me, I was going to Venezuela - not a very likely destination for the majority...

    Experience in Caracas - José's Venezuela

    What is Caracas like for you? Do you recommend it? How is it? Caracas is an excellent and beautiful city. It has a mountain in the northern part which has the name "Cerro El Avila" (Avila mountain)- it's impressive because it can be seen from anywhere from the east to...

    Hi everyone! I hope you're all okay, today I want to tell you a little about the horror stories which have been stirred up in my city: Lima. When I was small, I remember that the story which scared me the most was without a doubt the story about "Maria Marimacha"; a...

    Experience in La Paz - Mariel's Bolivia

    How was it living in La Paz? Would you recommend it? It's a beautiful place, small and fairly quiet. The climate varies and the altitude of the city usually affects people if it's their first time in the city, but everything else makes up for it, since you can find...

    British Museum

    When we went to London, we visited more museums than churches. Why? London isn't a cheap city to live in, nor to visit. A lot of the tourist attractions cost a lot and a lot of the churches charge an entry fee, however, all the museums in the United Kingdom are free....

    Brandenburger Tor

    The Brandenburg Gate or "Brandenburguer Tor" in German, is one of the most important symbols in the city of Berlin in Germany. This is one of the most important monuments in Germany because it used to represent an entrance into the city; it was like a customs point....

    Japanese Tower, Chinese Pavilion and Museum of Japanese Art

    My first point of contact with this odd place was during my first trip to Amsterdam on the bus - I loved admiring the landscape whilst travelling. Who knew? It's another way to discover new things and so on that occasion... I made out some buildings which caught my...

    Towns, towns and more towns

    It's been some days that I haven't posted anything and it's because I have been somewhat occupied with exams, studying and doing my work as well as a friend who came to see me... It's been non-stop! These last few days that I haven't had class, I've gone on a lot of...

    National Botanical Gardens

    Anybody starts to become accustomed to the heat after spending a week in the Dominican Republic. We've gone several times to Arroya Hondo to visit family and during the journey, I saw a largely green area, which looked like a jungle. They told me that it was where the...

    Dominican cuisine (the first of many) A tasty delight

    One of the best things about the Caribbean (apart from the sun) is the delicious food; a lot of it uses banana or plantain as the base ingredient. Food in restaurants: my experience in Adrián Tropical A lot of tourists look for ways to please their taste buds. I found...

    A free tour around Berlin, what are we going to see? Completely recommendable!

    On our second day in Berlin, we decided to take the maximum advantage. I had seen on the internet that there are free tours which are quite recommendable; they are called "Free Walking Tours" because they consist of only walking and cities such as Berlin provide this...

    The last day in Amsterdam and the return home

    The last day in Amsterdam The last day in Amsterdam surprisingly started with sun. We didn't leave our hotel until after we had eaten and when we left, the first thing we did was catch the tram to take us to the city centre. Once there and seeing as we hadn't seen some...

    First stop: Granada

    As this is my first post, I have to talk about the city that had seen me being "born", it's not the city where I was born, but it's the city that has made me into me, which saw my evolution into the person that I am today. If you have not yet been to this city, you...
