Category Archives: Travel tips

This part of blog is focused on sharing most useful travel experiences with you. I spent last ten years on travelling. There were months when was travelling so much that I could go around the world twice. I was spending more time at the airports and on the plane than at home. There were weeks when in my bedroom there was always an open suitcase: partially unpacked, partially re-packed. Crazy time. And I loved every minute of it.

I’m not saying that I know everything about travelling but there are some things that I wish I knew before I travelled. It may simply make travelling more enjoyable. So, feel free to read it through and use the tips that you found useful.

The Big News. Or Even Two.

The Big News. Or Even Two.
Four years ago I published the first post on this blog. It was about how it all started, the travelling thing. It goes back almost fifteen years when I studied in Milan.
