Travel Health Kit: Things you should always carry with you

This is not another advice from a panic mother or girlfriend who wants you to carry half of the pharmacy with you on every trip. This is also not a sponsored post where I will mention all the things in my travel health kit that I actually never carry with me. This is a simple and honest advice from an experienced female traveler who doesn’t want to risk having a headache in the middle of the desert. This is also a very important reminder why you should take care of your health insurance for traveling abroad. My time abroad is usually very limited and I don’t want to spend it searching for the nearest pharmacy. I don’t have any specific […]

Nasvet za popotnike: Zdravstveno zavarovanje za tujino

Utrujena od raziskovanja San Diega in vožnje proti severu (članek o tem potovanju sledi kmalu) zavijeva v prvi Starbucks na poti, kjer veva, da bova dobila spodobno kavo in brezplačni internet. Še vedno sva namreč brez hotela za naslednji 2 noči, ki naj bi ju prebila v Los Angelesu. Pogled na hotelski aplikaciji Booking.com in Expedia ne kaže dobro – očitno sva naletela na precej oblegan termin, na voljo je samo še nekaj motelov in hoteli od 200€ na noč dalje. In to hoteli z dvema zvezdicama, brez vključenega zajtrka in parkirnega mesta. Glede na to, da rabiva samo prenočišče, saj na potovanju večino časa preživiva zunaj, se odločiva za cenejši motel v predmestju, z brezplačnim parkiriščem, pri čemer si […]

7 stvari, ki jih je dobro imeti v potovalni lekarni

Ne glede na to, kako pogosto potujem, pakiranje je zame še vedno nočna mora. Tisti zoprn občutek, da bom nekaj pozabila, je verjetno ostal še iz časov, ko sem za potovanja dajala zadnje prihranke. Spomnim se, ko sem v Tuniziji pozabila sončno kremo (no, oba sva jo pozabila), v hotelskem resortu pa je bila tako draga, da sva raje zvečer opekline mazala z jogurtom, kot da bi kupila novo. To so bili tisti časi, ko si moral priti domov vsaj 2x opečen, da je dopust nekaj veljal. Zdaj je seveda precej drugače, saj se lahko držim načela »potni list in kartica«, za vse ostalo bodo poskrbeli bankomati in POS terminali. Pri pakiranju mi še vedno največ časa vzame izbira oblačil […]

Joshua Tree National Park, California

According to the legend, early Mormon settlers thought that these tree-like branchy plants looked like biblical prophet Joshua raising his hands up to the sky and guiding the travelers westward. So, they named them Joshua tree. And somehow this “tree” also inspired one of my favorite bands to name their best-selling album after it. Driving through the Joshua Tree National Park during our 2017 USA road trip actually reminded me of the song “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.” Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect from Joshua Tree National Park. I didn’t even know that these plants were actually species of Yucca and not trees. Looking at the photos on the internet I thought this trip would […]

Enchanting Sedona, Arizona

Imposing red rock formations that rise from the desert like skyscrapers have been on my bucket list ever since my first visit to Arizona in 2012 when I failed to see them due to the lack of time. And even this time our road trip schedule was so tight, it only allowed us one day to pass through this beautiful valley. However, one day is just enough to feel the grandeur of Sedona, stretch your legs with some modest hiking and have a great meal in one of the Uptown restaurants. The most famous landmark in Sedona is the Cathedral Rock and climbing up there is practically a must. The trail to the rock is quite short (just over one-mile […]
