With the talks and jokes about people wanting to flee from America after the election, I think I’ve seen several articles popping up about the best places to move to. Of course, Denmark always ends up to be one of them. And there is a reason for that. In 2016, for example, Denmark topped the list of countries with the best quality of life.
Now that I’ve been rambling about my trips for quite some time, it came to a point where I feel I should/can share tips on how I plan my trips with you.
To me, it’s all about planning. Not just because it is a smart thing to do, but because the anticipation of the trip itself is already making me all excited. After all, holiday itself can go by in a blink of an eye, but the excitement that builds up before the trip is what gets you going up until you can actually complete your travel.
This is a post for all of you who live away from home, your true home where you’ve been born and raised. Every now and again you still visit, but not nearly as much as you wanted to.

Today I want to share a story of my friend, an ordinary guy from Mariupol, Ukraine who ‘made it’. Mykola Sokolov might be the guy with the best job in the world, at least in the eyes of travel blog readers or those who wish to be able to travel more. Why? In a nutshell, he actually travels full-time, 352 days a year, gets his hotels and meals covered and gets paid to do it!
Moving from country to country 2 months at a time, he gets a perfect sense of what it feels like to live and work in each of them, rather than being just a tourist or visiting on a short business trip. Hate him already? Let’s learn more about Mykola, the best job in the world and what is it really like to live a life of full-time travel. [click to continue…]

There are a lot of articles out there about how to travel with children. But what about us, grown up children who go on a trip with our even more mature parents? You think that is easy? I think that travel with parents also needs it’s own survival guide.
In this global world where everyone lives anywhere but home, one of the main possibilities to connect with your parents who live far away is to travel with them. In my case, I see my parents at least twice a year, with me traveling back to Ukraine and them visiting me in Denmark. [click to continue…]
I am still a realist and cannot say that travel is not expensive. It is. Even if you travel on a budget, you still probably spend more money than you would by just sitting at home, buying food from your favorite grocery store and riding your bike to work. Because traveling is not just a plane ticket. It is also having a place to sleep, eating out and endless transportation from and to airports, between sights and remote locations where you want to see something extraordinary. Therefore, I still cling on to my day job that allows me to have funds for traveling. [click to continue…]
Europe road trip is an amazing way to see Europe, as it offers you plenty of flexibility and ability to visit as many countries as you wish in a time span you have.
