One Day in Szentendre in Pictures


I'm not the biggest fan of Budapest, and when I happened to be there on an exceptionally hot Saturday, my desire to leave the city as soon as possible has won over my internal urban explorer. I had a few day trip ideas, but I just went for the easiest one after all. In my defense, I traveled all night to get to Hungary from Armenia.

Perfect Eastern Caribbean Cruise



I was never a cruise person. Well, I'm not much of a beach bum either, but I recently started to realize that I need my vitamins sea and sun more and more, and that my lifestyle of a freelance road-tripper calls for a break once or twice a year. That's when I started researching activities that have never even crossed my mind before.

Your Home in Ljubljana – Vila Veselova Hostel



I knew I would love Ljubljana before I even stepped out of the train that brought me to the city. And it wasn't only because of my pre-trip research (read: browsing pretty images on Pinterest and Instagram and getting overexcited). It was just the way this region makes me feel. To say that I love Central Europe is an understatement. No matter where I live, I only belong to this very part of the world. I've never been to Slovenia before, but it felt a little like homecoming. Thank you, regional identity. 



Ljubljana Old Town



All that said, I still needed to find a place to stay to make me feel that the city loves me back. I found Vila Veselova Hostel and I would love to take a minute of your time to tell you about this cozy mansion right next to Tivoli Park.

Postcards from the Slovenian Coast



Slovenian coast isn't exactly famous. The Slovenian Riviera only measures 46.6 km, so a constantly rushing backpacker might as well overlook it. He might, but you shouldn’t. It’s quality not quantity that counts in travel, right?

One Day in Sintra



I love big cities, but it’s a rather complex relationship. I need my alone time, too. Sorry, hustle and bustle, we aren’t meant to stay together for too long. Every city break I go on ends up with me on a getaway to the nearest pretty village. Or a castle. Or a pretty village with a castle.
