My name is Lena. I’ve decided to start writing about my travel stories in order to keep my best memories alive and written down somewhere and because I hope they will be helpful or at least fun to read to someone else. Traveling inspires me to do new things and to constantly change my life, that’s why I love it.
Lisbon, such a remote place in Europe that it takes around 4 hours to get there from Copenhagen! Thankfully I had a book with me to lessen the pain of flying in a low cost avia where seats are too tight and no entertainment. But it is very much worth the pain of traveling there.
My time in Lisbon was limited, therefore, I still feel like I missed out on a lot of things that are possible to see around the city. But here are 7 main things to see in Lisbon in 4 days: [click to continue…]
London! So much meaning in this one name. It is one of those places which no matter how many times you have been there, it will still draw you back. At least that is the effect London has on me. Time there is always too short and there is ever so much to see and to do. [click to continue…]
Finally, after four days of being on the road, we have arrived to Camogli, a fishing village in North-Western Italy, province of Genoa.
It is perfectly small to not be crowded, yet also popular enough to attract tourists from all over the world. I have only good impressions of Camogli, with its nice, though non-sandy beaches, warm waves, beautiful narrow streets and colorful buildings. [click to continue…]
Italy is the country of amazing food, dirty side-roads, many tourists and people with attitude. But it is a ‘must visit’ country, due to its natural beauty, its amazing architecture and worldwide historical influence.
After our alarming experience driving in Austrian Alps, and not being sure about if our car can handle more of high alpine roads, we decided to totally cancel all of our plans in Switzerland, which included a lot of those. This meant that we are going to get to Italy couple of days earlier than expected, taking a different route than planned. That’s why I called this post “Improvising Italy” because half of the travel arrangements in this country we had to figure out on the spot.
Austria is a country worth visiting due to its deep lakes and high mountains. We spent 2 days of our road trip in Austria being challenged by curvy roads.
After visiting the medieval style Prague we have traveled another 360 km down south to get to Hallstatt in Austria, which is a small village with less than a thousand inhabitants but with an access to a big and stunning Hallstätter lake. [click to continue…]
A nice and easy way to discover Europe is by taking a car trip. Since many of the countries are small and there are no borders in Schengen zone, Europe is perfect for it. Our 14 day travel route went through 4 countries including Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and Germany and spread over 5,000> km. We were 4,5 people in a car (4 adults and one 3-year old).
Overall the 20 day Panama Costa Rica trip was a total bliss. It was my first time in Central America (well, America’s in general) and I didn’t know what to expect, but what I’ve seen was amazing. And these countries have loads to offer: from white-sand beaches with palm trees and snorkeling to active volcanoes and misty rainforests full of wildlife. So, you will definitely not get bored.
