My dear readers, this is insane, but maybe it’s only me because I live in small, quiet Slovenia. The explanation of this insanity stands in daily use of 60 million scooters and 30 million cars. There is not a second that you don’t see a scooter on the street. However, if this traffic insanity won’t shock you, prepare for a culinary shock (in positive and negative sense) and financial shock (in positive sense). Prepare for a spectrum of flavors, from delicious spring rolls and amazing street food offer to sweet cucumber salad and weird animals on your plate. 4 dollars will get you 2 main courses, a coke and a beer. Well, if that is not a good deal, then I don’t know what it is.
Child of sea, sun and relaxation, you may have not come to the right place. However, despite the rain, cold and wind, this destination offers something a warm one can’t. This is nature straight out of fairy tales, magical mountains, fairy pools and turbulent waterfalls. You are visiting a destination, which is an inspiration for many movies and fairy tales, has a crazy history of witchcraft and a lot of green landscape. This is a birthplace to worldwide known Harry Potter books.
Well, child of sea and sun… Have you changed your mind yet? Come on, come with me and visit this magical world.
Tuscany, described with one word, is a true oasis. If you are done with problems, your job and stress, pack your bags and visit the most beautiful part of Tuscany. It is going to hold you, spoil you and won’t let go until you are full of energy and completely relaxed. Tuscany offers the most beautiful views, tasty local cuisine, kind people and in a second you will be thinking of moving here. The singing of Italian language and casual way of life will enchant and completely overwhelm you.
Ohrid is a wonderful place located right by the lake that carries the same name. It is an ideal place for historical enthusiasts and light travellers. With its look and sights it offers a real ancient experience. For those who love visiting and sightsee churches this is a place for you because here you can find one behind every corner. You can glimpse through sights Ohrid has to offer in a day. However, I would recommend at least two or three, so you can peacefully discover hidden corners of the town, enjoy a drink or two by the lake and fill your stomach with Macedonian goods in the evening.
Prague is one of the cities people completely forget about. Though we always praise London, Paris and Amsterdam, Prague can easily compare with, if not even outstand them. It is enormous, but with one of the best public transportation you can quickly see all the little things it hides.
They say Mallorca is a classic Mediterranean postcard. With bright blue sea, vintage villages and high, majestic mountains it is a beautiful island and a place one must see at least once in a lifetime. It is perfect. Why you ask me? Beside delicious food, good music and amazing beaches, it has more than 300 sunny days.
Gran Canaria is part of Canary Islands and it is third biggest. No matter what kind of vacation you have in mind, this island will fulfil your each and every wish. Do you want to lay on the beach and stroll around the city? – The island offers Maspalomas, Las Palmas de Gran Ganaria and Telde. Do you want an adventure? – Tight roads with blind turns, on which you have to honk, so the approachable car can hear you coming, lead to lovely little villages like Terror and Agaete with gorgeous views of volcanic island. Do you want an athletic/sporty vacation? Well, you’ve come to the right place. There are many hiking trails with hidden beaches, natural landmarks and paths among beautiful nature.
Portugal is simply amazing. Nowhere else have I seen so many relaxed and kind people. Locals will gladly help you, tell you what is worth seeing and might even take you there. Almost everybody speaks English or at least try to – so there will be no problems as far as the communication is concerned.
Trip to Netherlands began in November in Zagreb. When I arrived, I jumped from the airplane into the train and drove north for another two hours to city called Groningen. I didn’t have to worry about accommodation because I was visiting my friend, who studied there.
I only had 4 days and the plan was to see Groningen, visit northern island called Schiermonnikoog and then return to Amsterdam for 2 more days of fun. Quite a bite, right? Before I tell you more, I truly recommend visiting Netherlands in spring or summer because I was chilled to the bone and came home with fever and blocked up nose.
