9 Day Trips you should Never Take

… Because they should be overnight trips!   Day trips… they’re convenient when you want to see as much of a region as possible in a short amount of time.

Explore the Elements

Explore the Elements

One of the photography goals I’ve recently set for myself, is to focus more on themes: to capture recurring colours, patterns or situation. I find most of the themes I’ve been working around so far, quite average. I usually collect pictures of exotic drinks, dishes, mistranslations, strange signs and a couple of funny ones I’ll [ ]

5 Quirky things to do in Bogota, Colombia

Every time I spend a reasonable amount of time in a big city, I try to look for some funny, cool, quirky things to do besides the general tourist attractions. As this was my second time in Bogotá, it didn’t take me long to have completed the list of “must-sees”. Though I found Latin America [ ]

3 Awesome Budget Accomodations in Albania

I wasn’t sure what “on a budget” in Albania would mean exactly. Would my daily lunches consist of a raw cucumber from the market? Would I be forced to skip the bus fee in order to save a few bucks? Would I be sleeping in dirty dungeons, sharing bathrooms with 10 other people? None of [ ]

Wine Tasting in Corinth, Greece

Wine Tasting in Corinth, Greece

When I think of “wine countries”, I immediately think France, South Africa, Chile, Australia, California… Greece doesn’t even spring to mind. Strange, because after all, during the antiquity, the Greeks were one of the largest wine producers in the region and their ancient techniques still form the bases of modern wine culture today!
