Ushguli

Going to Ushguli in Georgia was quite an experience. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site and is said to be the highest (approx. 2100m above sea level) permanently inhabited village in Europe. You can walk to Ushguli from Mestia in about four days if you want to stay in guesthouses or three days if you … More Ushguli

Mestia

I remember I saw some photos of Svaneti region in Georgia and I instantly imagined myself wandering around some snowy peaks of the Caucasus Mountains. I won’t surprise you by saying that I headed there straight after landing in Kutaisi a day earlier. My parents and I jumped into a mini bus and a few … More Mestia

Gran Canaria

Fifteen years or so ago there was a TV show in Lithuania that sent an old lady on holiday to Gran Canaria. I don’t remember now all the details, but she put together a ridiculous song that, unfortunately, is still in my head.

Carrapateira

After couple hours of heading south of Portugal we exited the motorway and started moving towards the coast.

Probably due to my lack of history knowledge, I didn’t expect Portuguese to sound anything like what I was hearing, but that … More Porto

Adventures in Iceland

I never imagined that anything like that existed in real life.OK I’ve seen the photos before, but it still felt so surreal to be there. Swimming outdoors in -5C and not feeling … More Adventures in Iceland

Budapest

Life is short and you need to make the most of it. That’s what people often say, but they forget to add that you also need to go to Budapest. It’s definitely my favourite European capital at the moment and I cannot wait to go back one day. I got there at the end of … More Budapest

Bratislava

It was my first day of unemployment and I was heading to Bratislava. Having finished a yearlong internship I decided that it was time to relax and that I would worry about getting a new job once I came back from my holiday. Bratislava wasn’t my final destination, more of a stopover on the way … More Bratislava
