    MADEIRA: TREKKING ALONG THE PONTA DE SÃO LOURENÇO PENINSULA.

    We have decided to go on this trekking after spending a few days in woods and mountains in the middle of the island. We figured a change of location would be a nice contrast to a foggy and windy heights. If this sounded as a complain over past few days, it was not! Far from it. If you know me at all, you know how much I love woods and I would probably choose foggy woods over a beach 9 times out of 10. Ponta de São Lourenço is situated on the very east point of the island. It’s a barren peninsula with cliffs, and the only way to see it…

    WHAT TRAVEL HAS TAUGHT ME SO FAR? (PART 1)

    Recently I’ve asked my readers to tell me what kind of posts would they like to read and one of the most requested ones was to write a post on The things I’ve learned from travel. I have to say I liked the idea, but it took me a while to think of everything I want to include in this post. Eventually my list is much longer than I thought it would be, so I am dividing it into two posts – part 1 and 2 (part 2 coming soon). I am also including random photos from my travels, which you will probably recognize. I hope you find this kind…

    FLORIDA: EVERGLADES WILDLIFE

    This was my second time visiting the majestic Everglades National Park. When visiting for the first time with my boyfriend, we took an air boat ride through the swamp. It was one of those small private boats for max 7 people and we had a really great private tour, which turned out to be a much more authentic experience than booking a tour on one of those huge “mass tourism” air boats. We saw quite a few alligators during our ride. It is scary to think that just a few metres away there are deadly alligators, who would tear apart anything that is potential food in just a few seconds.…

    USA DIARIES: THANKSGIVING IN TENNESSEE

    Travelling from Miami to Tennessee was rather hectic. Despite the fact that the flight took less than 2 hours, I was as exhausted as it would lasted at least 7 hours. We had to get up really early, at around 5am to catch the flight. It was around Thanksgiving time so you can imagine the lines at the airport were long. You know, when some flights are quick and easy and everything goes somoothly and some of them are more exhausting, for different reasons? Well, I’d count this one to the exhausting ones. There was a lot of waiting – our flight was overbooked so we literally had to throw…

    BEST OF 2018

    Last year I wrote a post as an overview of the year 2017 ( see the post here: http://best-of-2017) And since so many of you voted on instagram you would like to see that kind of post again this year, I thought why not make this annual tradition. If I had to describe this year in a few words I would probably use the following few: travel, freedom, new opportunities and new friendships. For me this year was a bit different than past few years, since I have finished all my work at uni in early spring, that gave me a freedom to travel more. Finally I was not restricted…
