Cycling Across Europe

It’s an understatement to say that I’ve been absent from my blog lately. I’m too embarrassed to even look when I wrote my last blog post. A lot of things have happened since the blog has been updated. I left China, breathed fresh air in Canada, cycled from London to Rome, started a new job […]

New Cycling Adventure

It’s been a “fun” few weeks. A few not-so-fun cycling adventures in China made us decide that our initial plans to cycle Shanghai to Hanoi were dusted. To reward ourselves for living in China for 9 months we decided to ride our bikes in a place where food is fucking delicious, where one can camp […]

Cycling Tours in Spain

Guest post by Maria Kruk, an author for Spain.net Favorable climate of Spain allows not to give up on cycling even in winter; moreover, summer heat is more of an obstacle for those, who adores going on long-distanced cycling or trekking tours.

Rome – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I was lucky enough to spend a week in Rome courtesy of my mother. She thought I needed a break and took me away for a week. I haven’t traveled in Europe for over four years. In fact, I haven’t really traveled to a popular Western tourist destination in quite a while and I was in […]

Ski the 2nd Highest Vertical in the World – Zermatt, Switzerland

When Jonathan brought me to ski in Zermatt Switzerland I had no idea that we would ski the whole day around the Toblerone. Excuse my ignorance, but until that day I had no idea that Matterhorn was the logo of Toblerone and that it is located in Zermatt. Cars are not allowed in the Zermatt ski […]

The City of Doomed Romance – A Day in Verona, Italy
December 23rd, 2012Destinations, Europe, ItalyNatalia 3 Comments

It feels like anytime we travel we have limited time and this Euro road trip was no exception. We ended up in Verona, Italy due to its location and proximity to the Swiss border. We originally thought about Milan or Venice but I heard mixed things about the big city and the city of water proved a bit of a long […]
