Updated: 07/07/18 | July 7th, 2018 Death is not the end for the residents of Père Lachaise in Paris. Their tombs and graves are gawked at every day by hundreds of camera-touting tourists seeking the cemetery’s famous and not-so-famous inhabitants. The cemetery was built in 1804 as the city ran out of room for new […]
London is an expensive city but luckily there are tons of free things to do and see there. Here’s a list of the best 70 free things to do while in the British city.
Updated: 07/01/2018 | July 1, 2018 Uncorking a bottle of French wine on a sunny day, spreading brie on a baguette, gazing out on the Paris skyline in front of the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre — to me, that’s the perfect day. Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world thanks to its cobblestone […]
Every year, thousands of travelers wonder how they can stay in Europe for more than 90 days – the limit in the Schengen Zone. The good news is that there are a few different ways to stay, but it can get complicated. In this post, I share what you can do to stay legally beyond the typical tourist limits.
Updated: 06/02/18 | June 2nd, 2018 I’ve left pieces of my heart in many places around the world: New York, Paris, Stockholm, and Hong Kong to name a few. But no place has a bigger piece than Thailand. It was my home for a long time (and in many ways still is). No amount of […]
Amsterdam has so much to do that, even after so many visits, I still find new things to do and see. The city deserves more than just the few days travelers give it, but if a few days is all you have and you want to make the most of it, this is the itinerary I would give you to get a good overview and feel for what makes Amsterdam so special.
Updated: 05/27/18 | May 27th, 2018 Europe is not a monolithic place, and prices vary greatly depending on how far north, east, south or west your travel. Europe covers a huge area of the world with multiple visa zones and multiple currencies. For 20 euros, you can get a private room in Greece. For that […]
Updated: 10/9/18 | October 9th, 2018 Iceland: the land of sheep, northern lights, volcanoes with unpronounceable names (try Eyjafjallajökull), and crazy high prices. It’s supposedly one of the least budget-friendly countries in the world — which made visiting even more appealing to me. I always view expensive countries as a challenge. Figuring out how to visit an […]
I didn’t really like Vienna the first time I went, but over the years the city has changed — and so has my opinion of it. What was once a stiff capital city is now a more relaxed, arty destination. With tons of museums and history, as well as some great food and wine, Vienna is worth taking the time to visit. Here is my suggested itinerary if you’ve got a week to spend in the capital.
Iceland is one of my favorite countries in the world and a place I regularly visit. Check out my favorite things to see and do in the country and get the low down on how to plan the ultimate visit! The locals are friendly, the nature is stunning, the exchange rate is the best in years, and the weather isn’t too cold.
In this post, I discuss my time exploring Edinburgh, Scotland – a beautiful and charming city with a medieval flair.
Updated: 04/01/2018 | April 1st, 2018 A stunning hour-and-a-half train ride through the English countryside from London takes you to Salisbury, home of the famous Stonehenge as well as the Magna Carta. It’s an easy day trip, but I found that Salisbury has a lot to offer and, in fact, Stonehenge is the least impressive […]
