Zanzibar East Coast heaven

I was advised before my departure to Zanzibar, Tanzania, that the best beaches are on the North-East coast that includes from down to the top Pongwe, Kiwengwa, Pwani Mchangani, and Matemwe.

2 days tour in Stone Town

I did the mistake to stay in Stone Town, Zanzibar, for three full days and nights. On the last day, I got totally bored and already regretted it. Two days are absolutely enough to see and visit everything in Stone Town, and you literally have nothing to do on the 3rd day. In addition, I

3 awesome days in Malta

I found so many unusual things on this small island in the Mediterranean Sea – Malta, that I have no idea where to start from. Probably with the language. Just imagine European looking people, Christian Catholics by religion, speaking kind of Arabic dialect with an Italian accent and writing it with Latin letters. Correct, the

10 reasons to skip a travel to Paphos, Cyprus

  Three weeks in Paphos, Cyprus and I already have a new hobby. I daily started practicing to greet unknown people in the street. Why? Well, obviously I do it on purpose. My general impression of the locals is of grumpy, non-stop complaining, hard to please people, able to explode for no reason. They look

10 reasons to holiday in Paphos, Cyprus

   If I should describe the typical colour of Paphos, Cyprus, I would define it as “tired green”.  It’s the association, which pops up in my mind when I look around.
