Beyond the Kangaroos – Australian East coast

When people think of Australia they often think of cuddly kangaroos and also of its scarier residents, like snakes and spiders that reside in the outback. On the other hand, the vibrant destinations along the vast Australian East coast are attracting more and more travellers and expats each year. Aside from the beautiful sunny weather, the East coast of Oz has plenty to offer in the way of shopping, culture, history, entertainment and a thriving food scene to satiate every belly. Therefore, if you’re thinking of heading Down Under and exploring more than just the kangaroos’ backyard (although, these are a must too), it’s worth heading to some of the top places along the coastline, and enjoying what they have to […]

Lombok after the earthquake

Many of you are still asking whether it is safe to travel to Lombok after the series of earthquakes which hit the island in August 2018. The first main shock with 6.9 magnitude, flattening the whole villages, happened on August 5th, just 3 days after I had booked our Lombok vacation. The other big one struck just a few days later – there were reports of even bigger damage and over 500 people killed, with thousands injured. The grounds had been shaking every day, there were also some landslides around Mt. Rinjani, some hotels had been completely destroyed and forums were flooded with travelers asking for new updates about the safety on the island. The answers were different: from “please […]

Hotel review: Jeeva Beloam beach camp (Lombok, Indonesia)

Lombok is quite big and if you want to feel its pulse you need to move around the island. Due to relatively bad roads and heavy traffic it is quite tiresome to be on the road daily, so we decided to stay a few days in the South first and spend the rest of our Lombok vacation on the West coast. While I was searching for hotels in Kuta beach, I ran into this small spot in Sunut peninsula, which seemed to be quite isolated. The photos and the reviews of Jeeva Beloam beach camp were very promising – I am a sucker for beaches and the fact that the camp owns an entire bay was the first green light […]

Weekend in Bratislava

Ok folks, first of all, Slovenia and Slovakia are NOT the same countries. Repeat after me: Slovenia and Slovakia are NOT the same countries. Now that we got this straight, let me tell you a few words about Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia (or more accurately Slovak Republic). One of the smallest and coziest European capitals is nestled along the Danube river, just an hour drive from Vienna. Small enough to be handled within one weekend, a perfect stopover on your way to other Eastern European cities (like Budapest, Brno or Prague) or a great starting point for a road trip to Slovak High Tatras – beautiful mountain range in the northern region. Whether you are an architecture lover, history […]

Hotel review: Lindner Gallery Central (Bratislava, Slovak Republic)

There are two things that are very important to me when I visit a city for the first time: planning the weather and choosing the right hotel. Being an experienced traveler, I have learned to manage both 😉 Bratislava was our second option for a short weekend escape (due to the bad weather our motorbike ride to Dolomites was off), and since we couldn’t find anyone to babysit our dog (august really sucks when it comes to finding a nanny), we had to find a pet friendly hotel as close to the city center as possible. After I had read that dogs are welcome in Bratislava public transport, I decided to book Lindner hotel Gallery Central, which is not directly […]

5 places to visit in Latvia

After having seen so many wonderful places in Lithuania I was beginning to regret that we didn’t have more time for our Baltic road trip. But with some good research, careful planning and sticking to our travel priorities, I believe we somehow managed to make the most of it. The next on our list was Latvia, a country with a population of little less than 2 million people and capital Riga, which should definitely be on every traveler’s bucket list. If you like our travel style (seeing the capital, some coast, a few historical places and enjoy the local food), you might want to consider these 5 places to visit in Latvia.   1. Liepaja Latvia has over 500 km […]
