Going on safari is definitely not something that just happens overnight. Unless you live in South Africa where you can simply take a self-drive in one of the national parks. (those lucky bastards!) Having to fly to another continent is a totally different thing, speaking from logistic and financial point of view. After returning from my third visit to SA, in the middle of Covid-19 pandemics, I got a lot of new questions.* Hence, a new post with the most frequent questions about safari, including those about traveling to South Africa during coronavirus situation.
Hiking is one of my favorite addictions. I’ll probably never climb Mt. Everest; however, I do sweat in the mountains a lot, so I do know a thing or two about safety and how to use basic hiking equipment. Sure, at first, I thought a pair of cotton leggings, a T-shirt and tennis shoes would do just fine. But the deeper I fell in love with hiking, the more I realized I needed to get proper outdoor apparel and at least some basic equipment to hike safely. Because only safe and responsible hiking allows you to enjoy the journey and the rewarding views at the top. In this post I will introduce my basic day hiking gear for beginners and […]
I »e-met« Sandra Šuc on Instagram about two years ago through her Alpine Princess brand. At that time, she had just started to promote her first line of outdoor leggings and she asked me if I wanted to test them. And the rest is history. I have been following Alpine Princess story on instagram ever since and I am happy to see it grow so fast. Both, me and Sandra were born and raised in Slovenia and this is one of the reasons I decided to support her in the first place. However, my love for the brand has surpassed the “patriotism” motive long ago. With no doubt in my mind I can say that Alpine Princess leggings are amongst […]
Shortly after having posted a photo from Maldives on my Instagram profile, I got hundreds of messages from friends and followers. The questions were pretty much the same: “Are you really in Maldives? Where did you fly from? Can you travel to Maldives during Covid-19 pandemics? Did you have any problems on the way?” Followed by typical questions about Maldives vacation: “Which island are you on? How much did you pay?” Since this was a well-deserved yet short winter escape, I didn’t want to spend my week answering all the questions. Hence my response: “After I return, I will write a blog post and tell you everything you need to know.”
Are you planning a trip to Utah and wonder if Salt Lake City is worth a stop? Which are the top things to do and how many days do you need to see Utah’s capital? I know that having spent 2 days in Salt Lake City doesn’t make me an expert. However, if you are in a rush, if you don’t have time to do a proper research and if you are more outdoor type of a person, you came to the right place. In this post I’m going to share with you the top 5 things to do in Salt Lake City in my experience and add a few tips for easier planning.
Sick and tired of quarantine? Well, who isn’t? We have been more or less stuck at our homes since March 2020. Can you imagine how this must feel to a travel addict like me? *desperate sigh and nose wipe* If you are anything like me, you are already making travel plans for 2021 and counting the days when we’ll be free to travel again. However, did you know that a few countries are already completely open for tourism? Meaning, there are countries without travel restrictions or entry requirements due to Covid-19, like mandatory quarantine and PCR tests for tourists?
I bet that over 90% of the people who want to visit Norway, don’t know anything about Senja. I was one of them as well, until I read a few blogs about Lofoten, mostly from local people. All of them had one thing in common: Senja is just as beautiful as Lofoten but far less crowded. If you want to have a perfect trip to Northern Norway, Senja island is not to be missed. On one hand it might not take too much of your time (you can always just pass by and make a few stopovers). But on the other hand you just might fall in love with it and want to come back. Like we did. In this […]
