There are several essentials which we always add to our packing list for Europe. We are avid drivers, and we took several Europe road trips throughout the years, thus allowing us to perfect our Europe packing list. Europe is an exciting continent with so many cultures awaiting to be discovered. From the gorgeous lavender fields of France, through the intimate gardens of Spain, to the dramatic fjords of Norway, Europe will take you on an epic trip
In need of some ideas on how to organise the perfect surprise birthday? You are in the right place, as this is my 5th year organising a surprise birthday trip for my husband. This year I wanted something a little different than before, and it involved me packing everything incognito, organising everything in secret and waking him up at 7 am on his birthday without him even knowing we are going somewhere.
When I was hiking in Peru the Salkantay Trek from Cusco to Machu Picchu, I fulfilled a dream of mine. I still remember the day when I was leafing through an encyclopedia to kill some time and then it happened. I saw a photo of Machu Picchu and read some lines about this place. Just at this moment, I swore to myself: "One day I'll be there". At that time I was fifteen years old, and it took me another fifteen years to get to that place.
With so many things to do in Japan, we might even be forgiven for returning to visit the country on a yearly basis. Every single time we decide to go on a long trip around the world, we end up buying tickets to Japan, eager to explore yet another off the beaten path location. We first spent 2 weeks in Japan about 4 years ago and we've been back ever since. We even lived in Japan for a bit trying to discover the best things to do.
When we decided to do a Norway road trip for the first time ever, we had absolutely no idea how our Norway packing list could look like. We knew we wanted to hike a lot, be in nature and visit a lot of places, but didn't know what to expect from Norwegian weather. Looking back, we realise the importance of having the right gear for both rain and snow. We spent two weeks in Norway, at the end of September, and had sunshine. wind, rain and snow.
Our first ever Norway itinerary was perfect. I don't just say this to get you excited, but I really mean it. There is only one other country which we loved as much as Norway, and that's Japan. The difference is, that in Japan our favourite city is Tokyo, whereby in Norway, we simply loved every single inch of this incredible country. During our road trip in Norway, we discovered mountains, lakes, fjords, national parks, cities and vast forests.
“You cannot enter the country on this visa” were the first words to welcome us to India. We arrived at Chennai International Airport early morning and waited for around 2 hours in a long queue at customs in the hope that someone will commence their work and start clearing e-visa foreigners. The queue was incredibly long, the air was stuffy and most people were getting increasingly irritated at the lack of personnel available to stamp our passport
We've been wanting to do a Norway road trip for a very long time, but we sort of always got busy with other projects. We love disconnecting from digital distractions and we normally take our yearly time off work somewhere remote. We love nature and we are soft adventure bloggers, so we've been toying with the idea of doing a long Norway road trip for about half a year now. We finally decided to book the trip and start planning.
Wondering what are the most romantic things to do in St Petersburg? St. Petersburg, Russia is just one of those cities you have to see once in your life. It has the splendour that will wow even seasoned travellers, yet it remains a rather underrated destination. St. Petersburg has many faces: the city of Tsars, the stage for the Red Army’s takeover, the place of many world-renowned art museums and now a European city with a diverse selection.
Wondering what are the most romantic places to visit in the Cotswolds? Located just two hours from London, the Cotswolds is a world away from the capital, with its rolling hills and sleepy villages. Bursting with historic charm and character, these villages are some of the most romantic places to escape to in the UK, with their honey-coloured cottages, streets lined with flowers and plants and genteel countryside backdrop.
