    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…

    CHRISTMAS TIME IN VIENNA

    Since it has been a while we have travelled together, just the two of us, we decided to end this year with a nice city break, put ourselves in “December” mood, visit Christmas markets and have a good time. As funny as it sounds, we were both a bit sick of planes, airports and everything that comes with it, so we really wanted to go somewhere that is within a driving distance, we decided to visit Vienna, the capital of Austria. Vienna, was our first “December” getaway, 6 years ago and we thought it was time to make some new memories there. We have both been to Vienna a couple…

    FIRST TIME IN SWITZERLAND: LUZERN

    Our next destination on this road trip through Alps was Switzerland. Can you believe I have never been to Switzerland before? I didn’t have a strong desire to go, until my boyfriend suggested we extend our road trip and visit Luzern, a city in Switzerland he had visited before and wanted to take me there ever since. I was in, as you can imagine. Later I have found out he had some additional secret intentions he left out in the beginning. That secret intention was to visit Stans – Pilatus aircraft factory and airport on our way to Luzern. I am sure all plane lovers and pilots will immediately know…

    LAGO DI COMO: WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE

    To break off this suddenly “mountain-themed” blog of mine, I wanted to share some photos and tips on what to do and what to see if you find yourself visiting the cosmopolitan Lago di Como. As I have mentioned in my previous posts I wanted to visit Lago di Como for quite some time now, probably since I have seen the movie The other man (2008) and since George Clooney invited me to visit him at his villa haha. I mean how could I say no? Putting the joke aside, arriving to Lago di Como straight from the Dolomites, was a nice counterbalance. From the mountains and a cutest cabin to…
