My Bruges photo diary

Bruges is beautiful! It’s one of those picture-perfect European cities that you simply cannot miss. This was my second trip to Bruges, although I’m not sure if the first one really counts. I travelled to Bruges at the end of last year to check out the Christmas markets. It was only a day trip and […]

Discovering the churches of Bruges

When I travel to a new destination, I love visiting the churches in that city or town, for two reasons. Firstly, I find that churches, or religious buildings in general, are often architectural marvels that house incredible works of art. Just think of, for example, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or the Milan Cathedral. Churches […]

The Jeseníky Mountains, located in eastern part of the Czech Republic close to the Polish border, is a paradise for adrenaline junkies and nature lovers. I lean more towards the latter.

If you pick hostels solely based on their locations, it doesn’t get much better than the Travel Hostel in Český Krumlov.

Watching the Eagles Parade in Philadelphia

With the new NFL season kicking off last week, I thought I’d share my experience watching the Eagles parade in downtown Philadelphia earlier this year.

One of the many reasons I like Ostrava is the incredible street art.

Chilling at Kopjes cat café in Amsterdam

Cat cafés are my new obsession. Yeah, I know, I’m kinda late to the party, but better late than never. It combines two of my favourite things in the world: cats and desserts. What’s not to love? There is only one cat café in Amsterdam called Kopjes. Last weekend I decided to go hang out […]

Eating at Laibon in Český Krumlov

Straight up, being a vegetarian or vegan in the Czech Republic is difficult. You will struggle to find a decent place to eat.

Visiting my first cat café in Ostrava, Czech Republic

There are two kinds of people: dog people and cat people. I’m totally one of the latter, a cat person! Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs. I’m the owner of the most adorable and loveable husky ever. But I would still describe myself as a cat person. Because my husband is allergic to cats, […]
