Scooter Drive to Positano

Scooter Drive to Positano
This was a memorable day! Driving a scooter in Italy is one of my favorite activities. A very simple skill I acquired instantly after my first scooter ride few years ago in Ferrara and since then I simply love it. I owned a scooter while I was living in Italy but unfortunately I couldn’t keep it when I left. All in all I use every opportunity to drive a scooter again and so from the moment I knew I went to Sorrento I had a ... Read more

Guest Post: Life in the land of the long white cloud

Guest Post: Life in the land of the long white cloud
Just when I got back from New Zealand I started to think how the real life in New Zealand is? Not that I would like to move there permanently but one month in NZ allowed me to reflect a bit on that. Few weeks later one of the posts on NZ got a nice comment from Esther (founder and editor of NZMuse Blog) and after a short exchange of emails she agreed to write a post. This is a guest post from her. Esther is a New Zealander herself ... Read more

Let’s hit the road! #2

Let’s hit the road! #2
Some of the pictures shared above were taken without even stopping a car. Literally. Just having window open, driving about 40 km/h and…click, done, let’s go. This was pure madness! The number of breathtaking sites in this country is hard to believe. All regions I crossed were not only packed with breathtaking views but also an evidence the stories on the variety of landscapes were true! I think my favorite view would ... Read more

Milford Sound Is A Must!

Milford Sound Is A Must!
My journey around the South Island was mainly very off the beaten track. I rarely met people and enjoyed peaceful days very much. But from the moment I read about Milford Sound and saw few pictures I knew I want to go there. Funny thing: picture on the cover of my guidebook was taken in Milford and I discovered it the moment I saw it! Milford Sound is a very touristic place and I think that even a long way you need to drive is ... Read more

Self-selected Tourism? The Case of the Aran Islands.

Self-selected Tourism? The Case of the Aran Islands.
It’s not easy to come to one of the Aran Islands: Inishmore, Inishmeain or Inisheer. Although all three are well connected with mainland Ireland- as islanders call the rest of their country- the trip is demanding in terms of a mental challenge. The trip made by plane or by ferry still challenges ordinary tourists. I spoke to few locals during my stay on the island and they told me that they are pretty happy about it. What ... Read more

Can’t keep up? 4 Ways To Simplify Travel Plans

Can’t keep up? 4 Ways To Simplify Travel Plans
You are RIGHT! I have started organizing a new trip: this May I will go to the Aran Island. There are many reasons why I picked up this particular location, one of which is the journey of Nicolas Bouvier to this island in the early 80s. I am thrilled to visit- for the first time- the place where Nicolas Bouvier was writing one of his books titled: Journal d’Aran et d’autres lieux. As I decided to go there few months ago ...

Are The German Autobahns Best in Europe?

Are The German Autobahns Best in Europe?
The German system of highways is one of the best thing this country has to offer to the tourists. Seriously! Travelling across Germany by car is really pleasant. The highways are excellent in terms of its density, interchanges and overhead direction signs, but also in terms of good driving conditions in the winter season. What really drives me crazy is the growing number of traffic jams, but this is true for all well developed ... Read more

Hanging around like a drifter in Stockholm

Hanging around like a drifter in Stockholm
I visit Stockholm every year. Usually, at the beginning of September or in late August. It’s not that this is my favorite holiday destination but this city is friendly enough to make a short stop. When I go to Stockholm the weather is usually surprisingly nice: sunny and warm. Only once I was almost washed off by the heavy rain. So if you think about visiting this city check the weather forecast and be prepare for every ... Read more

Blissful time under the lemon tree in Sorrento

Blissful time under the lemon tree in Sorrento
When I’m writing this post it is snowing here and outside my window everything is white and peaceful. And it’s really hard to believe that there are places like Sorrento: full of sun, warm, noise and energy. No doubt Sorrento is one of the top holiday destinations in Italy. It gives you everything what traditional holiday is about: the sun, the sea and the exceptional traditional food. Yes, you can also pay a lot of ... Read more
