Whether you are traveling to northern Norway to see the Lofoten islands or Europe’s northernmost point Nordkapp, you will most likely end up in or pass by Tromso. With its location (over 300 km North of the Arctic Circle), relatively mild stable weather and good connections, Tromso is also one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights. The city stands on the island of Tromsoya and it is connected to the mainland by Tromso Bridge and Tromsoysund tunnel. The position on the island, surrounded by sea, fjords and hills, together with its cozy downtown atmosphere, make Tromso an attractive stopover. We spent 2 days in this “Arctic capital of Norway” during our northern Norway road […]
If you are a Game of Thrones fan, nature lover or just chasing UNESCO World Heritage sites, Dubrovnik will eventually land on your bucket list. This ancient city, also known as Kings Landing and the Pearl of Adriatic, is one of the most beautifully preserved medieval cities in Europe. I have visited Dubrovnik twice: first time a couple of years ago in May, and second time this July, during the infamous COVID-19 pandemics. It was a two nights stay in both cases and this is enough to explore the city. In this post you will find “Dubrovnik in 2 days” itinerary, together with prices and practical tips for Dubrovnik first-timers.
.After spending a couple of wonderful days in Makarska last September (and due to the limited number of countries we are allowed to visit due to COVID-19), we agreed to repeat the trip this Summer. We especially loved Biokovo Nature park, so this time we decided to visit it on foot, by car and by bicycle. What can I say, laying on the beach all day is just not our thing. 😉 If you are wondering whether Biokovo Nature park is worth seeing and if you would like a few tips on how to make the most of your visit, read on.
There is a saying in Slovenia that goes something like: “Nothing that comes from Tržič is good, not even the wind”. Well, there is always some truth in local jokes, can’t argue with that. Tržič is probably the last place that comes to your mind if you want to visit Slovenia. And I can’t blame you – the town itself is nothing special. However, if you want to visit Gorenjska region, Tržič just might be the place to settle down for a couple of days. After all, it is less than 30 minutes’ drive from Ljubljana airport, hence a good starting point to visit Bled, Bohinj, Kranjska Gora and Triglav National park. Whether you want to explore its surroundings, or […]
If you want to visit Croatian coast but don’t want to drive too far south, spending a week or two in Kvarner bay is also a good option. In this post I will focus on Lovran, a small town in Opatija Riviera, which has just as much to offer as any other town in Croatian coastline. Especially if waiting in line for the ferry to one of the Kvarner islands is not your cup of tea. This charming little town has almost become my second home now, at least when it comes to sunny weekends, when I want to catch some vitamin sea. So, I will be happy to share top things to do in Lovran, where to stay, best […]
If you are a frequent traveller you have probably heard of jet lag. Most of the people who travel across the globe have problems with adapting to different time zones. Siting on that uncomfortable aircraft chair for 10 hours or more is exhausting enough. On top of that you are usually stuck in airports with short or long layovers. As if that wasn’t enough, in the end you land into a huge time difference, so there is a good chance you’ll reach your final destination exhausted and drained. How can you fall asleep normally after a long flight? How to deal with jet lag that follows the next day? Or better yet, how to avoid jet lag? Let’s see if […]
Miami is one of those cities that is probably on everyone’s bucket list. With its warm sunny days, wide sandy beach, hundreds of clubs and cozy southern vibes, Miami is ideal for a winter escape when the weather in northern hemisphere is cold and dull. It is also a very frequent stopover for international flights or the starting point of Caribbean islands cruises. If you are one of those travelers who can’t stand still or if you only have a couple of days to spend, long weekend in Miami is a very good idea. In this post I will share some tips how to visit the city, where to stay, how much it all costs and 5 things to do […]
