Indonesia enchanted us 4 years ago, when we were one of the few tourists in Lombok just days after the then devastating earthquake. As soon as the pandemic situation calmed down, I started planning our new trip to Indonesia. Java was on my bucket list for a while so we decided to combine a trip to East Java with vacation in Bali. In this post I will tell you about our East Java trip from Jakarta to Ijen, including a 5-day itinerary. Day by day, I will take you from Jakarta to Yogyakarta, Bromo, Ijen and finally Banjuwangi, where we took a ferry to Bali.
Sitting on the border of Europe and Asia, Turkey has always possessed a unique charm which is hard to find anywhere else in the world. This amalgamation of cultures sees the Eurasian nation stand out as a holiday destination unmatched by any other. It’s little wonder that as many as 41 million people travelled there in the year prior to the pandemic. But while we all know about its beautiful beaches, delicious food and unparalleled blend of old and new, how many of us can say we’re experts on the country? In this short blog, let’s explore 5 things about Turkey you didn’t already know.
Bali is the most famous Indonesian island when it comes to tourism. It is full waterfalls, rice paddies, temples and affordable villas with private pools. While popular with backpackers and digital nomads, it is also a desired destination for families and honeymooners. But is Bali really worth the hype?

Finally, I had the chance to see my favorite band performing live in Prague. Guns ‘n’ Roses concert was scheduled for Saturday 18th June 2022, so we decided to take a long weekend, combining the event with 2-days of city sightseeing.

Mine were: the location, parking, good breakfast, comfort and price performance according to the reviews. We chose Appia Hotel Residences Prague and totally nailed it!
I never thought I’d visit Dallas – in fact, even Texas state has never been on my bucket list. But then Luka Doncic* happened to the Mavs and we decided we wanted to see him do his magic live.

In this post you will find top 5 things to do in Dallas which you can easily fit into a 2-day schedule.
After having decided to spend winter vacation in Seychelles and just go with the flow, the only question remained where to stay in Praslin Island. For me, choosing the perfect location for our base camp is usually very important. And in this case in particular, our choice turned out to be a vacation saver. While Praslin left us with mixed feelings, La Pointe Beach Huts was something that we’ll cherish in our memories for a long time.
