Australia Great Ocean Road twelve 12 Apostles

Great Ocean Road

“Look at this gorgeous little bay. The water looks incredibly clear and calm.” “Yah, we should bring our swimming gear and make time for a short swim. It will be the middle of spring, so I am sure that being Australia, it will be warm enough.” This was me and Bogdan, looking at a video from Loch Ard Gorge and planning our Great Ocean Road trip. Now every time we remember that talk we burst into laugh, because the situation couldn’t have been more different than we have envisioned it. We were greeted by sharp winds from Antarctica and not […]

What do you do when you find flight tickets to the other side of the world at half their usual price? Well, you put aside your fear of flying so far away and take them while they last.

Malta – the Jewel of the Mediterranean Sea (1) 2

When I first booked our flight tickets to Malta, I didn’t expect much from this little country, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Malta is an impressive country, which not only has stunning landscapes, but also a rich culture and fascinating history. Short history Located in the Mediterranean Sea, at the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Malta was invaded and colonized by many people, because of its strategic position.

How we travel

For a couple of days, I kept wondering what should my first post be about? My favourite destination? A bucket list with the places I want to travel to? And then I realized that first of all, I should tell you how we like to travel, so that you know what to expect to read here.

But we want to see as many new places and things as possible, so when we have a couple of […]


About

But after I took a couple of trips abroad (at […]
