Ghana: a photo story

A few years ago I had the opportunity to travel to Ghana as an intern for a research project. I spent about two months and got to visit different areas of the coast line of the country. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Everything felt different but beautiful. Here is … Continue reading Ghana: a photo story

Feelings

The weather is finally getting cold, rainy, and windy. I believe autumn always gives us feelings of nostalgia, depression, sorrow, emptiness or even a feeling of escaping our lives. I guess it depends from each person's mood and lifestyle. To be fair, I love rain and autumn but at the same time during rainy days … Continue reading Feelings

Acceptance

This post is not about travelling but rather a personal essay of my experience of understanding and accepting myself. However, while this is not about travelling, my journey to discovering myself is linked to travelling. Specifically, it is connected with getting to know other cultures and people, who helped me manifest myself with their stories … Continue reading Acceptance

Explore. Discover. Learn.

In 2015 I had the chance to travel to China. For sure many wish to explore the vast country of China, to walk at the Great Wall, to visit the Forbidden City, to explore the Shaolin temple or to witness the greatness of the Longmen Grottoes. Undoubtedly there are so many historical and cultural attractions … Continue reading Explore. Discover. Learn.

Love is the key

On a different post I both criticised and praised volunteering tourism. I still stand by the opinion that often volunteering created harmful results rather than positive. Yet, from my experience I believe that volunteering can teach people of love, understanding, respect, and hope. This post is of how I came to learn that love always … Continue reading Love is the key

The tourism industry is full of tour operators that provide unique experiences either through sightseeing, food discovery, or a visual tour at traditional and daily performances. Unfortunately, it is common for tours to be quite expensive and often we desire to … Continue reading Bratislava: walking tour guide

Volunteering Tourism

When I was a university student in the UK, many organisations would often promote volunteering abroad. Indeed, volunteering is perceived as a good act, and most people do it out of their hearts' goodness. However, I believe volunteering sometimes brings harm rather than positive results. For instance, an 18-year-old goes to help at an orphanage … Continue reading Volunteering Tourism

Troodos: The Highest Mountain in Cyprus

Everyone knows Cyprus as an exotic island with breath-taking sandy beaches and hot burning sun. Perfect for vacations and holidays to bathe in turquoise waters, built mini castles in the white sand of the beautiful beaches, and get a golden tan. But, Cyprus is not only about the sea. Cyprus, also has the mountain range … Continue reading Troodos: The Highest Mountain in Cyprus

Shades of Yellow

Often the moment September arrives, people from being sunny, smiling people turn into depressing turtles. Everything feels slower, and people want to just stay at home and feel warm. But I feel like September, and autumn, in general, is perhaps one of the prettiest times during the year. The cities and forests get beautiful yellow … Continue reading Shades of Yellow

Unexpected beauty

Sometimes the best things you'll discover while travelling are random and unexpected places. You are merely walking around a street and unexpectedly you stumble upon the best view of the entire city. Or perhaps out of the blue you find some interesting art, statue or some sort of decoration. I just love random things you … Continue reading Unexpected beauty
