My quickest booked trip ever - Barbados, Caribbean

  When my friend Bentley (he was named after the car) mentioned Barbados, I did not pay much attention to it. It happened in London, where we were co-workers, had really hectic, crazy, busy days and the last to think of was a trip to the Paradise (Barbados). Do you know the feeling when a

A passionate traveller is dreaming for HOME

  I have never thought the moment will come and I’ll be dreaming of settling down. Reducing the intensity of my trips, no rush to the airport, no fever to jump on the next flight, not speedy packing at the very last moment…I just surprisingly found I need a place called HOME. Whole day long

Cape Town, South Africa – the windiest place on Earth

  If you plan a trip to Cape Town, South Africa, you should be aware of the wind. That’s not a joke. The most recognizable characteristic of Cape Town is the all year round blowing, non-stop flushing and just time-to-time calming down wind.

It made me curious to uncover why

A coin gets me back to Rome

I would probably never find out why the flight to Rome, Italy makes me so excited every time I do. Must be something really magical in that city, that pulls me back over and over again. Approximately every three to five years I am back. I have a hunch. The story is a bit weird, but

In the heart of Africa - dancing Rwanda

  Everyone can dance in Rwanda. This conclusion I simply made after spending two weeks in this small East African country. The local dances blew my mind away by the hypnotising rhythm of the traditional drums, called ingoma. It’s the crucial ground of the Rwandan music and most of the movements are accompanied by that
