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.

“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

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.

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.
It’s that time of the year that finds you packing your bags or maybe a few weeks before their preparation and as you are also finding me exactly in the same phase, I decided to share with you some of my favorite travel tips… not only regarding to packing up but generally your travel, as well as your return from that.
This year, I decided to visit the Scandinavian north, on a last-minute trip I combined with an exciting rail trip to the Arctic. After doing some online research, I decided I would fly to Sweden, explore Stockholm and then, I would take the night train from Stockholm to Kiruna – the northern part of Sweden near the Arctic Circle. From there, I would take a flight back to Stockholm.
