Backpacking

It was back in March 2016 when me and my best friends headed to Morocco by plane and even though I wouldn’t think of visiting the North-African country again, I have to admit that it was one of the funniest and most exciting trips of that year. I had so many great experiences and took so many photos, I had to share with you!

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

“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.

Last week’s travel destination was a country that up until my trip I knew nothing but a few basic info about: Slovakia. Its capital, Bratislava, is a small city of great significance, as it is bordering three different countries: Hungary, Austria and Czech Republic. That makes it an ideal destination for those wishing to organize daily excursions to explore the neighboring countries.

The Trans-Mongolian offers a whole different experience compared to the Trans-Siberian; a much newer and consequently, cleaner and modern train, I definitely wish I could spend more time on than just 24 hours. In my cabin this time, I meet a Mongolian guy that seems quite disturbed by my presence. He nearly spoke to me during the rest of the trip!
