How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

I love people, I really do. I think I always knew that, but since I started travelling I realised it all the more. Sure, people can be really lame at times, like when they can’t accept each others’ differences. But apart from that, they’re pretty awesome. I […]

#CzechOut Prague

#CzechOut Prague

October is a good time to go to Prague. There is something special about walking around in the streets with the fresh autumn breeze grazing your face, your hands snug in your pockets, and the red- and orange-coloured trees creating an unusual sense of warmness as […]

Passing through Portugal like a local

As Easter came and went, I sat in shock at just how fast time flies. Literally more than a year ago I was in Portugal for Easter. More than a year ago! I vividly remember the departure day… running  through Bergamo airport like a mad […]

How to survive the expat life

How to survive the expat life

A few gained truths from travelling

A few gained truths from travelling

It may sound pretty cliché, but there honestly is no school that will teach you what you’ll learn through travelling. I don’t think I ever really understood what people meant when they talked about “gaining life experience through travelling”. I just always smiled and nodded […]

A crash course on Italian coffee culture

A crash course on Italian coffee culture

It’s one thing moving to a new city, it’s a completely different thing moving to a new country. And if you’re going to be a stranger in a new place, you at least want to do it with a good cup of coffee in your hand, right? […]
