Malibu Stars Homes tour, Los Angeles

Let’s be honest, everyone who visits Los Angeles secretly hopes to spot a celebrity. After all, most of the Hollywood movie stars have a house in one of the fancy neighborhoods like Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Malibu or Santa Monica. And they DO go out for dinners, drinks or shopping, right? Well, I have visited Los Angeles three times and I haven’t seen shit. The truth is that most of tourists visit Walk of Fame and other “must see” attractions and those are definitely NOT the spots to meet celebrities. There are some bars and restaurants where the stars usually hang out, but those places are not cheap and you need reservations to get there. The easiest option to get […]

Fear of flying? Interview with a pilot and some interesting facts might help!

This might sound strange to you, but in the past few years my fear of flying has increased enormously. It all started on my trip to Vietnam; we had some modest turbulence during the flight for about 2 hours, and for some reason I was sweating and shaking like a leaf, waiting for the end to come. It probably had also a lot to do with the fact that I was flying alone and I definitely didn’t want to make my hairy sweetheart an orphan. Since this has been going on a lot lately (I guess the older I get, the more alive I want to be), I have decided to get familiar with my chances to survive up in […]

How to get from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Sanloem

I spent a lot of time figuring out which island of Cambodia to choose for our February vacation and after deciding to go for Koh Rong Sanloem (which is supposed to be quieter and less crowded) I was totally confused about how to get to the island. A lot of blogs, forums and official information from ferry services can be found on this subject, however to manage all the logistics seemed quite a challenge. First of all, you need to decide which ferry service to pick, second you need to know your timings (flight arrivals, departures, time to get to the airport and back etc…) and at last but not the least, you need to book your boat ticket online… […]

Resort review: Pearl resort (Koh Rong Sanloem, Cambodia)

This February we chose Cambodia for our short escape from European winter. After spending 3 days in busy Siem Reap, exploring the majestic Angkor temples, we decided to relax on a beautiful island of Koh Rong Sanloem. While checking carefully all rooms in Saracen Bay (the main beach and port on the island) I got the impression that we would be squeezed between hundreds of hostels and bungalows – and that is definitely not my cup of tea. Suddenly this isolated brand-new resort caught my eye so I dropped a few lines to the management. I wanted to know if we would be able to visit the Saracen Bay and go places we wanted to (the island has no roads […]

Hotel review: Gevora hotel (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)

Another visit to Dubai calls for another opportunity to try something new, starting by choosing a new hotel. This time I decided to stay close to Dubai World Trade Center because I was attending Arab Health exhibition and had some meetings there in three consecutive days. Hotel rates usually skyrocket during special events and exhibitions (paying almost 300$ a night for Ibis hotel, seriously guys?), but I somehow got lucky: Gevora hotel showed a special rate during my search on booking.com (by the way, you can get 15€ off your next booking by using this link) and I didn’t hesitate even for a second. I booked a room and asked for “a nice view”. And what a view that was! […]

Weekend trip to Opatija riviera: visit Opatija, Lovan and Rijeka

You know that thing about neighbors’ jealousy, because the grass is always greener on the other side? Well, I am pretty sure Slovenia has the greenest grass you have ever seen, but Croatia can definitely take all the credits for owning one of the best coastlines in the world. While Slovenia only has about 40 km of coastline, Croatia boasts with 1,800 km of diverse beaches, including thousands of islands and some really charming old towns like Dubrovnik (we all watched Game of Thrones, right?), Split and Opatija. Luckily, Opatija riviera is really close to Slovene border and it has become one of my favorite spots to relax on weekends. If you visit Slovenia and want to make a quick […]

My bucket list for next 7 years

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, most of people aim to lose weight, quit smoking, do more exercise … or something else, mostly health-related. Well, I have been a good girl for years now and I am well aware that healthy lifestyle is a journey, not just something you promise to yourself (and usually fail) every year 😉 Instead of making resolutions, I decided to come up with a bucket list of 7 destinations I want to visit and 7 activities I want to do in the next 7 years. As I mentioned in my post about my travel favorites, my goal is not to visit all countries in the world, but it is pretty damn close. And since […]
