Hiking Scottish hills
It’s the beginning of 2018, and this year's January has been one of reflection for me. As other people have been asking me about my resolutions for the new year, I have started thinking about my life and whether there are things I like to change or improve. One thing that has massively gained importance to me lately is...
Solo travel in Prague
I wrote this on my way back home when my Interrail trip had finished. It was the last leg, a fast train from Germany to the Netherlands, where I would stop at my parents’ house to repack my suitcase and take a coach back to London. This was my first time to experience solo travel and on the way...
Salento Colombia
Today, one year ago, I posted on this blog for the first time. I can’t believe it’s been a year already, time is going so fast. So much has happened over the past year. I’ve travelled to many places, like Colombia, Turkey, and several cities within Europe. Plus, I’m writing this from Scotland right now :) This summer’s Interrail...
Seven Hills view Blue Mosque
Dear reader of my blog, there aren’t a lot of you, so I appreciate you even more for it. Unfortunately, I have to disappoint you a little bit. On my trip to Istanbul I’ve not been a good blogger. When visiting restaurants in Istanbul, the food looked so tasty that I ate it straight away, forgetting to take pictures...
Santa Fe de Antioquia
After visiting Medellín’s Comuna 13 in the morning, it was time to venture out of the city in the afternoon. I completely love being surrounded by historical architecture, so Santa Fé de Antioquia was high on my list and it has not disappointed! Santa Fé de Antioquia is a very charming old looking town. The reason for its historical look...
Austrian mountains
Tomorrow I’m hopping on a train for a three-week interrail trip to Central Europe on my own. I’m planning to visit Munich, Salzburg, Ljubljana, Vienna, Krakow, Prague and Berlin. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. This is going to be my first real solo trip. I’ve taken many flights on my own, spent the occasional day alone...
Sunlit leaves Sunny Journeys
Today we find ourselves exactly in the middle of the year. This isn’t normally anything I pay attention to, but I thought that this year it would be a good opportunity to evaluate my project of New Year’s resolutions. The project hasn’t worked out exactly how I thought it would, but does anything ever? I’m still very happy I...
Big Bazaar Istanbul
During your time in Istanbul, there is one phenomena that I’m pretty sure you’ll be unable to escape: the pushy sales techniques from shopkeepers trying to sell you anything and everything! Carpet anyone?! It all started on the first day of our visit to Istanbul, when we went to the Grand Bazaar to buy a scarf for mosque visits.     I...
Medellin Comuna 13
Comuna 13 is a neighbourhood in the Colombian city Medellin, with a notoriously violent history. I read about this long before my first visit to Colombia, and I’ve found the story very touching, trying to imagine what it must have been like for people who live there. Comuna 13 represented all the negative that Colombia used to stand for,...
It is my birthday! I thought this would be a great time to share my travels of the past year. It has been my best year in terms of travel, I’ve never travelled this much before! It was also my first year to travel with a DSLR camera, which has made photography so much more interesting! I’ll share with...
