The most exciting thing about travel is to explore the unknown, the chance to have first-hand experience of a country. The more I travel and the more I believe I know about the country and its culture, the more I realise how little I actually know when I get there. Jordan was a real life teacher and I feel I have learned so much but there is still so much to learn that I will have to go back for some more classes.

11 years ago I visited Sicily and decades after my first visit I still find Sicily a very captivating place. Sicily is a very charming and romantic island but as a keen photographer what also captured the attention of my lenses are the terracotta walls, the colourful clothes hanging outside to dry in the warm weather, the drama of Mount Etna erupting at any minute, the lemon trees, knowing that history and stories will lie just around the corner and the flavours of delicious Sicilian food and wine.

After being unimpressed with Berlin, I had mixed feelings in regards to Munich. But I fell in love with Munich straight away; the city was everything that Berlin wasn’t: beautiful, clean, lively, had a city centre easy to get around, great parks and delicious food. It was completely different than walking around the industrial-grey Berlin.

I visited Berlin on the beginning of a trip around the south of Germany – which you can read more about on my post Romantic Germany. I thought 48 hours would be enough to see Germany’s capital but I quickly realised it’s not nearly enough time. When I arrived, even thou I planned, I worried that 2 days wouldn’t be enough time and I would leave frustrated at merely scraping the surface of the city.

I love travelling with my parents. When we are young we are silly, we don’t like to go anywhere with them but once we get older we learn that, between other qualities, they are actually amazing travel buddies. I am quite lucky as they are actually fantastic and fun people. And joining the “Germany crew” I added my super fun, 100% healthy-eating-always and upbeat (also fantastic!) auntie.

My first time in India! Everybody starts at the North, everybody wants to see the Taj Mahal (and so do I!) but for travellers, the south is India as you’ve always imagined it – colourful, exotic, mystical and even a little magical. So I decided to start my India exploration by seeing the real India: the southern part of this beautiful and very interesting country.

Whenever I said that I was going to Poland, all my friends and family looked at me as if I’ve gone mad and asked “what are you going to do there?” Oh well… I will answer: Poland is a wonderful blend of beaches, lakes, forests, mountains, and interesting cities with lots of history. However, a lot of people don’t really know much about Poland and have stereotypical thoughts about the country and its background, there is also the awful fact that Poland has the worst and most horrifying Jewish concentration camp in the history of Nazi Germany – Auschwitz, which I always wanted to see (I shall explain why further down this post). So, if you like history, especially if you are into WWII, Poland needs to be in your list.

Nearly a thousand miles of the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean lies paradise in the form of 115 islands: the Seychelles archipelago.
It’s perfectly possible to get an airport transfer to your luxury resort, not leave for a week and have an amazing time – but to do so would be to miss much of the charm of the islands. As a country seen by many travellers as prohibitively expensive a cruise around the must see islands in the archipelago and stay a few more days in one of the main islands, in my opinion is the best and cost effective way to visit and know this fantastic destination. Seychelles was always a big dream destination right on the top of my list and I started my Seychelles dream trip on a 7 nights cruise, followed by an adventurous 4 nights in Mahe.
