Every year you say it, you dream it, you believe it: “This year, I’ll visit my dream destination”, “This year I’ll finally visit that part of the world I’ve always dreamed of!”. Yet another year goes by and you’re still dreaming of drinking your Havana in Cuba and disappointed as you are, you run to the bar while you should be looking hotel rooms and ticket prices online. Hold on for a second there. Think to yourself: Is this a smart move to make? I do agree that a visit at your local bar will cheer you up but what if you skipped the visit and save those money you would spend so eagerly to actually take that trip? How is this possible? Simply by following my 12-step guide below to make it a year to remember! Are you ready? Start taking notes… Plan your trip To organise a trip…
It’s been a week since I am back in Athens from the Caribbean paradise of Puerto Rico and I can’t even put into words the fascinating adventure this trip was.The feeling of wearing a swimsuit in December, during Christmas and swimming into the sea was so new to me.
Spring is here and these perfect, sunny days are ideal for exploring the incredible corners of this country with roadtrips around Greece. While I do enjoy more going on train trips, neither the country’s railway system encourages long trips, nor does it offer the independence to visit remote towns and villages far from major cities due to lack of connections and insufficient stops along the route.
“Aren’t you afraid?” I’ve heard that question so many times in the past – in almost every trip I take whether it is a million miles away or an 1-hour trip from home. The word “fear” keeps coming up in every conversation I have lately.
I’m the type of traveller who leaves behind every preconceived idea of a place I may have before visiting it but, I must admit, I was prejudiced towards Sofia since I had that unfounded belief that it was an unsafe city, one of those capitals without an identity of her own that featured a combination of characteristics from other significant European countries such as Italy/Germany/England
There are two types of cities for me: those I have on my bucket list and… the cities I never thought I would like until I visited them. Copenhagen is one of them: a city I wasn’t very keen on visiting since I believed it had nothing to offer. That was until a friend of mine who finally managed to make a reservation at Noma, the famous restaurant which has been awarded as the best restaurant in the world for 4 years in a row, invited me to join him in Copenhagen. I met him in the summer as we travelled together in the Trans-Siberian and he is a chef. And just like that, I booked my ticket to Denmark and in a few weeks, me and my favorite Boricuas were re-united in Copenhagen. We only had but a few days to explore the cold capital of Denmark. We decided…
It was almost two years ago when I travelled all the way to Russia to travel aboard the Trans-Siberian – a legendary train crossing almost 1/3 of the planet: 3 countries and the deepest lake in the world, Lake Baikal.
n such a way, so simply and beautifully I was invited by the TEDxUniPi team to talk to TED. I still
remember the first minutes when I read my e-mail five months ago, entitled as ‘’TEDx University of
Piraeus- Invitation’’, I burst into tears
It is road trip season, it’s undeniable. With nature at its best, everything around us still in bloom, let’s be honest, heatwaves have not knocked on our doors yet, the sun is warm, most of the days, inviting us to leave home, and the only thing that we dream of is fully packed suitcases, some good company and counting kilometers, many kilometers as moving through villages, cities, hills and valleys. Oh, and some delightful music, of course!
Since 1995 and after having hosted the Olympic Games, Barcelona became the ideal city for someone to live in. Its buildings, its streets, its life quality, everything changed and developed, and, besides having gone through rather critical times, it has managed to turn into one the brightest, most promising, most creative and most youth-attracting cities in Europe.
