Bangkok is a busy city. However, it is also a very beautiful one. Looking at pictures on Pinterest of all the skyscrapers and grey buildings, you might not see that, having not been there. But the beauty of Bangkok is not the busy streets and tall buildings. It’s the temples, the people and of course the food! There are so many temples in this city – each and every one unique and important to the locals. But the one thing they all have in common is the fact that they are very beautiful – filled with gold, wall paintings and greenery. The people are very nice and polite – except in traffic. And the food in Bangkok beats most of the food I have ever had. Asian food is of course the most popular food in Bangkok – anything from traditional Thai food to Japanese sushi to Vietnamese Pho is to be found in all the food courts in the malls. However, you can also easily find a good Subway sandwich and a Starbucks coffee.
I’ll be the first to admit, I love a good quote. I mean, who doesn’t? I find some of them very inspirational and every time I find a good quote I want to turn my life upside down to live by that exact quote. Of course, I never do – it works for an hour or so and then I forget all about it. I find them helpful whenever I’m trying to be more positive, save more money for travel or for whatever I set my mind to. I love when I want to do better at something when I read a quote. Therefore I want to share some of my favorite inspirational quotes with anyone willing to be inspired. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up feeling inspired to travel.
Italian food is delicious. I think we can all agree on that. Therefore I made a list of all my favorite dishes from the Italian kitchen for those of you who want to try authentic Italian food during your visit in Italy, but don’t really know which dish to choose from the Italian menu. Sometimes you will be sitting in a restaurant, looking at the menu and not knowing what is going to be served to you after you choose one of the Italian dishes you can’t pronounce. Hopefully this list will help you pick something you actually know what is. It will be really difficult to find an Italian restaurant in Rome that doesn’t have at least one of these items.
Today is officially the first day of winter! That is a very exciting thing as it is also the first day of the month of Christmas! However, it is also the end of autumn… And I do love myself a good autumnal day! Which is exactly why a day in Oslo at the end of autumn is perfect day for me. Yes, the weather was colder than I would normally prefer. And yes, there was a lot of walking – and I mean literally 4-5 hours of walking. But this city is such a beautiful place – especially during autumn – which is why I didn’t even mind the cold or the walking.
Bali is a dream destination for many – and for good reason. It is simply an amazing island. I have come to love Indonesia after my visit. It has everything from paradise beaches to delicious Indonesian food to incredible waterfalls to beautiful temples. Bali is a destination I would recommend to anyone. And when I recommend a destination to someone, people tend to ask what to do there. Therefore I have now made a list of things to do on this amazing island for anyone who might want to visit someday.
I love New York City! But New York City is an expensive city to visit. No doubt about that. However, it doesn’t have to be too expensive! There are a lot of ways to save money when you’re visiting New York City. One of them is doing free things instead of the overpriced sights. There are plenty of things to do in this city without spending a dime.
Whenever I go on a long haul flight, like a connection from Dallas to London or Copenhagen to Bangkok, I always have a routine I follow. This involves a couple of things I buy beforehand, things I do or definitely do NOT do and rituals to do once I’m in the air. This routine helps me survive 10+ hour long flights, or any other flight for that matter, so that I’m ready to see my destination as soon as I land instead of just crashing in my hotel room. These are my best tips to survive a long haul flight.
Paris is a city everyone should visit at least once in their life. There are so many things to do and the atmosphere is quite unique. Being the capital of France, the food is of course delicious and I would probably recommend visiting the city just for the food. But Paris has so much more to offer. The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Latin Quarter, Montmartre, Avenue des Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe. These are all must sees in Paris and they are definitely worth a visit. In fact, you can see all of them in only three days with this itinerary.
I know, I haven’t tried every tapas restaurant in all of Madrid, but I’m pretty sure that the rest of the restaurants are going to have a hard time trying to compete with this one. I went here with a lot of people – probably about 30 people – and the staff was just amazing! The tapas was incredible and the waiters kept bringing out new additions to the tables.
