Basic Information I love Turkey and I have been planning on visiting the area for quite some time. Our previous visit to this country was in December/January and originally we were visiting black sea region during this period. However visiting in Winter is not very recommended due to the huge amount of snow which falls in the area. Early spring is also not recommended due to the landslides following the rainfall. The best time to visit the Black Sea region (Trabzon and Rize provinces) is during late Spring and Summer. This region as known as the green heart of Turkey and in summer people c ..read more

This was the main reason why we visited Georgia – its glorious and untouched mountains. Georgia as a country consists mainly of mountains and hills and the most famous and accessible mountains lie some 3 hours north of the capital. Where to stay and for how long There are two main tourist hubs in the Kazbegi mountains; Gudauri which lies 2hrs north of Tbilisi and Stepantsminda which lies 1hr further north bordering Russia. We opted for Stepantsminda; mainly because accommodation is cheaper and it was closer to the places we wanted to visit. We also visited Gudauri and I am so gl ..read more

Basic Information about Georgia Your trip in Georgia is likely to start and and end in the capital city of Georgia: Tbilisi. Tbilisi is served by one international airport which is 20 mins away from the centre. The airport is quite small and mainly connects the Georgian capital to the main cities in the middle east, with some seasonal flights to European cities. When you look for information on Georgia online, most probably you will stumble on websites that give information on the American state instead of Georgia as a country. So be careful when doing your research. Tip: I suggest you s ..read more

Choosing an airline from another when catching multiple flights depends on multiple factors; timing, price, airline reputation, past experience, airport facilities and also when possible visiting the city you are stopping in. Whenever we stop at Istanbul airport we love visiting the city and sometimes increase our time between a flight and the next one (especially now that we are travelling with our daughter) to get a good rest and visit a new area in the city. We have just visited Istanbul for our 4th layover. Check out my first taste of Istanbul here. This was the first long layover in ..read more

Our journey visiting the natural parks in Poland countinued in the Southernmost region of the country; Lesser Poland. The main natural attraction here are the mountains in the Tatras National Park, which is where the highest peaks of the country are located. The Tatras National park extends to Northern Slovakia, which we had visited some years ago. You can read more about the Slovak Tatras National Park here. The mountainous part of Poland is confined to a rather small area when compared to the size of the country, so you can imagine how crowded it can get. Zakopane is the main town in th ..read more

Stuck again on 314km of land – a year after

Here I am a year after; yet again stuck again on this tiny piece of land. Why? Because I decided not to take a third vaccination. First and foremost I don’t take a vaccination because I am threatened. I won’t live under the threat that I need to vaccinate myself whenever the authorities decide to! Secondly I believe we were all taken for a ride when we have been administered the first two doses. Most of the information provided was incorrect and I am sorry to say that the majority of health professionals lost their credibility on this issue. I have been contemplating about this post for m ..read more

This is a journey about nature! Following the first part of our trip in Northern Poland in the Warmia and Masuria Region we moved to Eastern Poland travelling south along the Belarus and Ukranian border. Our main objective during this trip was visiting the natural parks in Poland and their surroundings; walks in the forests, looking for wildlife, observing flowers and mushrooms and just listening to the flow of the water in streams were our daily activities. We also visited a couple of small towns but avoided visiting big cities. Below are our stops in Eastern Poland: Narwiansky P ..read more

A journey through Poland’s Natural Parks – Warmia & Masuria Lake District

Sometimes there is a combination of factors that makes a place more special than others and this is a clear example. We practically booked our trip to Poland a couple of weeks before; the summer holidays were nearing the end and we did not want to miss the last opportunity for some time abroad. With winter approaching and a consequent surge in COVID cases, and uncertainty related to changing restrictions, we thought of leaving again our tiny island after less than a month as we might not be able to travel again during wintertime (we never know when lockdowns may return!).
