My article “The Pros and Cons of Staying in Hostels in Europe” has been published on The Coach Network Travel Site.
Recently I was asked by Leah from the Miles From Comfort Blog if she could interview me and let her readers know about how I started traveling and my motivations. I invite you to read the interview.
Often online I see people who are looking to travel to a new country or continent but they have questions in regards to their cellular service coverage. Having the internet is essential these days. We no longer need to pull out a physical map when you can load Google Maps on your phone and it tells you exactly where to go. Let me explain to you how I get coverage and my progression to what my personal solution has been.Read More
Read about my Full Experience: Third Stop, Lisbon!
1. Hills, lots of Hills
Before I chose Lisbon as a city that I wanted to visit, I read a couple of posts online about how nice of it a city it is to visit but no one ever mentioned the hills. To put this bluntly, I have never sweated so much on vacation. Most of the hills are steep and if you’re slightly out of shape, you will be breathing heavy. Also, if you’re like me and you rely on Google Maps for directions, it may send you technically on the shortest routes but it will also send you up the steepest hills. After being there for 4 nights and walking around the city alot, I realized that there were multiple and less stressful walking paths than what was suggested.Read More
Every time I go to Europe, I always find my way back to Berlin. I remember when I made my travel plans to see London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin, I thought Berlin would be my least favorite of all the cities. Turns out, it’s my favorite city till this day. I feel very comfortable being there and I’ve learned a lot about this wonderful city.Read More
There are many motivating factors for people to travel. Experience different cultures, try new foods, make new friends and the list goes on but as humans we are very visual. With every person having a camera on their phone, we are all amateur photographers and we spend a lot of time looking at images of all variety and if you’re into traveling, you’re looking at pictures of cities and landmarks. This is normal to run into especially when you have a place in mind to go to but you want to research it more. No problem, go on Instagram for pictures or Google Images to see what these places look like. One thing has become very evident after traveling to some of these places, a lot of pictures that are floating around are edited.
I had the opportunity to go to Munich as part of my 9 night Germany trip. Munich was my second stop and I knew only a few things about Munich from other Germans and travelers who have been there. Needless to say, I was wide open to what I may run into and what to visit while in Munich.
Tourism is a huge industry throughout the world and countries across the world want people to come into their country to experience their culture and of course, spend their money. With this being said, there are airlines that are being used to entice travelers to choose their country as a possible country to visit by offering great layover programs. A layover program is essentially giving you the ability to pick an ultimate destination but mid travel you will have a layover in a different country for 24 hours or longer. This idea is to give you the opportunity to tour the country and then fly to your destination.
