I am not a wine expert but since I lived in Italy I tasted a variety of white and red wines. I participated in a wine tasting before and I am probably an average wine fan: love it with whole my ...

We had one day off for a bad weather and charming meeting with friends who came to visit us. It left time to plan another adventure.

Why long-term traveling is unsustainable?

Why long-term traveling is unsustainable?
We all got used to the mainstream rhetoric that promotes long-term traveling. Every day, the leading newspapers and mainstream media argue that leaving everything behind and quitting the job is a great scenario to all who feels tired, burnt out and unhappy with their lives.

It was their first time in the Polish highest peaks. Here is a review of our ... Read more

It guarantees an access to the ... Read more
