Sizzling Slovenia: Piran

Sizzling Slovenia - Piran

Slovenia sizzles and one of its must-see places is Piran. This lovely coastal town will take you on a journey to times long forgotten, while you enjoy the finer things in life. It’s an old seaport that has preserved its medieval atmosphere with narrow streets and compact houses. Last week we wrote about our trip to […]

Belgium and 5 Reasons To Visit Brussels

Brussels

For a very long time I thought that Brussels was a dull city. The only time I’d dedicate a thought or two to the Belgian capital was somehow connected to the European Union and bureaucrats. And let’s be honest, bureaucracy is boring. And Belgium seemed to have so many more interesting places to offer, like […]

Uruguay & Argentina: Concluding Thoughts

Uruguay & Argentina

The word Uruguay has always had an exotic, charming, cling to it. This morning I read a thought-provoking novel, El libro de los abrazos, by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano and I thought that it would be time to conclude the blog series about our trip to South America. You can read all the previous posts here >> […]

Eurovision Song Contest 2016

Eurovision song contest

It would be almost criminal for us to have a travel blog, live in Stockholm and NOT write about the Eurovision Song  Contest 2016. So, how did we – two ordinary citizens of Stockholm –  experience the festivities? Not at all, really. Maybe we don’t hang out in the right places. To all non-Europeans out there, […]

Sizzling Slovenia: Ljubljana

Sizzling Slovenia: Ljubljana

As we walk down the memory lane, let’s dedicate a moment or two to Slovenia – and we’re starting with the capital, Ljubljana. We visited this tiny country in southern central Europe in August 2013. At the time we were living in Slovakia (yes, two different countries!) and we wanted to spend our summer holidays […]

Helsinki in Spring

Helsinki

Helsinki in the spring is the place to be! On one chilly Friday night my friend Satu and I met up with Jesper at the train station in central Helsinki. We had decided to celebrate Walpurgis the Finnish way. By that time, I had already spent a few nights on the road but Jesper was […]

Travel Stories: The Time…

Travel stories

I have always admired people who are well-versed and well-traveled, people who suddenly charm a tired group of souls with their travel stories. Travelling, I think, is partly popular because it gives people to chance to collect these stories, it gives them the opportunity to shine. Travel Stories: The Time I Slept Under a Tree […]

Historical Helsinki: Suomenlinna

DSC_0190

Bastions, barracks and a King’s gate; anyone visiting Helsinki should definitely spend a few hours at the Suomenlinna sea fortress that is located just outside the Finnish capital. We went to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in April 2016 and this is a summary of our journey to the islands that are so popular among […]
