The Monumental City of Évora

The Monumental City of Évora

Some days ago, (me, the local guide in the house) while on the way to making an Evora tour with a lovely American couple, the wife enthusiastically told me: “You know, we came here six years ago, when I was pregnant, and we liked this place so much that we decided to name our daughter Evora.” That’s how much one can fall for this city.

Romania Is Not Just Dracula’s Land

I visited Transylvania and I didn’t get bitten.

This last summer I visited Transylvania, Romania. And fully embraced the culture, gastronomy and way of life. Within the experience I got to meet simple and nice people in their habitat, traditions and specifics customs. Transylvania is situated on the west and central part of Romania and for many people the obscure land of Dracula…yet, not only. The meaning of the word Transylvania is “beyond / far side of the forest” and for the majority of people is a distant and mythical place. Continue reading

The Best Theme Song when Travelling The World

Craving for travelling re-emerges when music hits you. As if you can keep a feeling silent. Jimy Hendrix said: “Music doesn’t lie.”

It happened to us when we first listened to Birdie by Abel Korzeniowski. The surprise we had when we found the video! Someone else made the same association – with travelling the world – and it felt somehow comforting. The images and moments captured in this video will turn you even more restless – to climb a mountain, to sail away, to see what the mind can only imagine: “I’m going to pack right now! And leave. With the first plane, with the first opportunity.”

If you have other song recommendation, please drop us a link 🙂

What We Learned About The Coffee Culture In Denmark (Scandinavia)

What We Learned About The Coffee Culture In Denmark (Scandinavia)

Writing about the incredible effect some coffee shops have on ourselves and our conversations is not a cutting-edge topic. We’re here to remind you that travelling can happen in our minds, while enjoying a coffee in that special café across the street. The speed of thought can take us far far away till the pyramids of Egypt or the Himalayan mountains. Continue reading
