My Story of Constanța, Romania

I interrupt my regular stories from memory lane and bring you a fresh from the oven trip that just happened last weekend. With travelling abroad still being a bit of a hassle, travelling inside the country is currently more convenient. And so, as the company I work for decided to give us two Wellness (free)Continue reading “My Story of Constanța, Romania”

A Trip to Tuscany and Beyond part 4

My Story of La Spezia & Cinque Terre After the short overnight stop in Pisa, we left, by train, of course, to our final destination: Cinque Terre.  If you haven’t heard of Cinque Terre, you definitely saw at least one picture on the internet, depicting a cluster of colourful villas perched on a stone cliffContinue reading “A Trip to Tuscany and Beyond part 4”

A Trip to Tuscany and Beyond part 3

My Story of Lucca and Pisa, Italy We left Siena on a Sunday and unfortunately, there were no direct trains from there to Lucca or Pisa and the connection was somewhere near Florence. Moreover, luck was not on our side as we got off the train to see the connecting train leaving the station. WhichContinue reading “A Trip to Tuscany and Beyond part 3”

A Trip to Tuscany and Beyond part 2

My Story of Siena, Italy After a couple of days in Florence, we took the train to Siena. The trip took roughly one hour and a half and it was fairly pleasant.

Road Tripping through the Balkans part 1

I kicked off the summer of 2018 with a road trip through the Balkans, or well, part of them. Started in Bucharest, Romania, and headed west, crossed the border to Bulgaria at Vidin, then quickly got to Serbia where we had an overnight stay in a town called Kragujevac.  The next day, we headed towardsContinue reading “Road Tripping through the Balkans part 1”

The March Book Review

Photo by Tom Hermans on Unsplash The Alice Network I’ve started the month with a big reading mood that somehow managed to fade quickly, which resulted in only one read book in March. However, the book was great. I’m talking about a novel, called “The Alice Network”, written by Kate Quinn.  The description seemed promising and I hadContinue reading “The March Book Review”

My Story of Catania, Sicily

I went to Catania, Sicily (Italy) at the beginning of March 2018 with my partner and my baby sister (she’s over 20, but you know, forever baby sister). Why Catania? It was cheap. The plane tickets were around 50 euro, and the accommodation – an apartment that could fit up to 6 people was alsoContinue reading “My Story of Catania, Sicily”
