Short break in the Netherlands? why not? May23

Short break in the Netherlands? why not?

Gouda with skunk. These two aromas will always come to our minds when we think about the Netherlands. It’s a small country yet it evokes so many associations: tulips, cheese, skunk, freedom, windmills, bikes, Amsterdam’s Red Light District… That’s quite a lot considering that we’re talking about a country covering an area only slightly bigger than… Taiwan! There definitely is something in the Dutch climate that not only attracts people for a moment but also makes them “anchor” here for longer, something other than high earnings (4th most densely populated country in Europe!). What is worth to...

Castelli Romani… escape there from Rome! May09

Castelli Romani… escape there from Rome!

It is often said that Rome is crowded with tourists. We had known that before we went there but perhaps one has to see those masses of people in the Italian capital with one’s own eyes to comprehend the idea. Rome is literally bursting at the seams! It’s total madness! The authorities of Rome reported that in 2016 the city was visited by 56 million tourists (compare that with around 13 million that came to Cracow). The Colosseum itself was visited by 6,5 million of tourists during the same year what reportedly poses a huge threat to that monument. Everywhere you go in Rome, you meet enormous numbers of fellow tourists and after...

Sunflower country

Moldova is still a terra incognita on the touristic map of Europe. Let’s not deceive ourselves -many people don’t even know where that small country occupying the same territory like Belgium and whether it has something interesting to offer, or not. In 2012 Moldova was visited by...

City of ghosts – walk through the Pripyat!

See how Pripyat, town located near the power plant, called the “Phantom City” or the “City of Ghosts”, looks like today. I don’t know about now, but several years ago it was still impossible to get into the city on your own. Such trips are organized e.g. by travel agencies in Kiev; they obtained passes to the “zone”, fixed transport and a guide. It’s a one-day outing by a mini bus. When we visited the place several years ago only two “batches” were allowed to go in a day (at least that’s what we were said). So, there’s little chance you’ll bump into other tourists...

Camping in Tuscany

We’ve tried write few words about travelling around Crimea quite a long time and finally our plan failed, taken into account current situation there. The situation in Ukraine , especially Crimea is so unpredictable that writing tips about traveling around the peninsula doesn’t...

Frankfurt am Main. Put your nose out of the airport!

They call it “the city of white collars” and many people believe that it’s a good place to work, but not necessarily to live in, as it has no climate. Because of my work I spent there in total well over a year and at the beginning I would “sign up” to the statement about dullness of that city. True, it’s not Prague or Vienna. During the war the city was virtually flattened to the ground, so you’d waste your time looking for an old city from the 14th century. There are places, however, for which you should put your nose out of the airport… although the airport itself also deserves a separate...
