Amsterdam wasn’t on our destination list at the very beginning, but we thought we’ll have a wonder and see how we go. So where do we start? A lovely and walkable city with no shortage of interesting sights and streets to make us wander whether we made the most of every minute. We flew from London and arrived just before midday. We grabbed an uber to our hotel, located at the Leidsesquare (Leidseplein), near to all Amsterdam’s highlights such as the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Flower Market, shops, bars, clubs and restaurants. Our room was beautiful, perfect for our 2 night stay,…

London… oh London. I absolutely loved London. It truly felt as we were home. The stunning architecture and history had us amused throughout the entire stay.

I’m not certain if that experience even counts as “proper” camping as we stayed in cabins.. I guess it was a muddy winter…

Beautiful islands, ancient and historic sites to visit, great climate, breath-taking beaches, crystal clear waters and blue skies, amazing food and wine, rich in olive oil and so much more. So much culture and history in just one tiny little country. Greeks, being one of the oldest civilizations among the Persians,…

As most stereotypical women out there I tend to over pack sometimes (or most of the time), not only when traveling overseas but even on a small weekend getaway, however, I always manage to fit it all. Being that I’ve worked in retail (start of university years) selling travel goods, such as suitcases, travel accessories, backpacks/day-bags,  has helped me on the way I pack and organise myself when travelling. There is such a large variety of travel products and brands out there, of which not many of you might be aware of, so I thought I’d share. The secret is…
