The capital of France is amongst some of the most visited cities in the world. I probably count as half of those visitors as I went many many times there. To be honest, it is not my favourite place. However, in recent visits, I start to fall in love, finally. Some Paris sights are so classic that probably I don’t need to mention them on this blog post such as the Eiffel Tower. Here’s a little plan on things to do in Paris for one day based on my personal experiences.
What was my least favourite city in Morocco is now one of my favourites. All I needed was giving it a second chance to get charmed by it’s fierce beauty, ancestral authenticity and endless energy. Tangier has a lot to offer, especially the Old Town which has many hidden gems. This list provides 9 things to do in Tangier’s Old Town. Let’s rock the Kasbah together!
I love the Balkans, it’s one of my favourite regions in the world. It’s authentic, unique and rich in culture. However, one of the downsides of this beautiful region is for sure the lack of public transports and intercity connections. Travelling by bus or by non-existing train is very time consuming and tiring. But is not impossible to get where you want to, so here’s how I travelled from Podgorica to Tirana by bus.
2016 has been an exciting year for me, travel-wise! I kicked off my travels in January by visiting Serbia for one week followed by quick visits of Istanbul and Tbilisi. In March, for my birthday, I went to Langkawi Island in Malaysia with an 8 hours stopover in Amman on the way. In April, I visited Cardiff in the UK. In May, I stayed in Morocco for 2 weeks and Spain for one week. During the whole summer, I had city-breaks in Faro, Copenhagen, Paris, Bremen and Berlin. It was indeed a busy year! I hope it will be the same again in 2017. So Happy New Year!
With 2017 just around the corner, there is a lot of planning to do. If your new resolution is to visit new places, mine is to re-visit some. On this blog post, I write about 17 cities I want to discover once again in the new year. If I re-add them to my bucket list, it can only mean I had an awesome time and I want to reconnect again. This list is based on trends in the travel industry for 2017 but mainly based upon my personal experiences.
Whenever I have an opportunity to travel, I try to make the most out of it. So instead of visiting one country, I try to squeeze in another. That way, I see and discover more. Copenhagen in Denmark and Malmö in Sweden are just 35 minutes away by train from each other. Seriously, this calls for a combined trip! So that’s exactly what I did, two cities in one trip! Both cities are quite different despite their closeness but both offer plenty of things to keep busy on a typical Southern Scandinavia trip.
London’s famous red double decker buses are a major attraction in the city. I personally like riding the bus in my every day life in London but I particularly like some lines such as the line 11. Why? Simply because it goes via many of London’s best attractions such as Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and St Pauls Cathedral. I get to the first row on the upper floor to enjoy an amazing view on one of the oldest bus routes of London, as it started operating in 1906. This is by far the cheapest alternative for a London sightseeing bus.
Today, hundreds of students will flock the halls of University of West London (UWL) to be honoured for their hard work in front of their teachers, families and loved ones. Unfortunately, I will not be part of their happy day which is also supposed to be my own happy day. The day when I will feel like my hard work as postgraduate student is finally celebrated. I chose not to be there for many reasons. But mainly because University of West London took me down to hell in the 3 months preceding this big day. Now, I am finally opening up on this issue but also on the unfair treatment I have received from them.
Do you ever feel kind of homesick from a place you have never been to? Well, it’s a very strange feeling I have been experiencing ever since my interest for travelling started growing. Some cities I just absolutely loved before even visiting (and I still love them even more after my trip).
One of the greatest things about travel, is the desire that I get to try exclusive and traditional experiences in the country where I am. For my first trip to Scotland, I took a flight to Edinburgh where I spent a great week-end enjoying the capital and its Scottish treats. But to make my experience even more local, I took a special overnight sleeper train back to London. It was a majestic overnight trip on The Caledonian Sleeper.
