In search of warmer weather during a winter trip to Europe, I headed to Malta. I’d never been before but it came so heavily recommended! While mostly a summer destination, I still loved my visit to the country but what I loved the most was what I had heard about the least!
Islay, Scotland is known for having world-class whiskeys. I recently went there with my good friend Sean and we did tastings at seven of the eight distilleries on the Scottish island. I was captivated by Islay’s beauty and their delicious and peaty whiskeys (I even made my own!).
I just got back from my third trip to Iceland. Because of its growing popularity with tourists, a trip to Reykjavik will cost you more than ever. But there are still some ways you can stay on budget and in this post, I share 11 of them (plus some of my recommendations on what to see and do).
One of the best parts of traveling is experiencing another culture’s traditions and I got to do that in Sweden at a friend’s birthday party. Today, I share about what makes Swedish birthday celebrations special and the cultural lessons I learned while attending my friend’s amazing and fancy 30th birthday.
Every year, thousands of travelers wonder how they can stay in Europe for more than 90 days – the limit in the Schengen Zone.
