Through fairy tale lands in Watkins Glen, NY

August 3, 2017
Watkins Glen gorge trail

Guys, I hope you’re not tired of waterfalls yet! There’s more to come but it’ll be the last one for now – promised 😉 Our last stop of our upstate road trip took us back to the Finger Lakes region, not far from our first spot Ithaca. This time, however, we stayed closer to the lake and further from any big towns. It was the perfect place to relax after visiting comparably busy Niagara Falls.…

Niagara Falls – More than just a waterfall

July 21, 2017
Niagara Falls Canadian vs US side

We continued our road trip from Ithaca towards west and crossed the bridge with the friendly name Rainbow Bridge where I set foot on Canadian ground for the very first time. Niagara Falls – there’s not much to tell you – I mean EVERYONE has at least heard about them, and being one of the top tourist attractions in the world (among the Top 10) a lot of people have seen them too. That being said, Niagara Falls still hasn’t lost…

Ithaca – New York’s gorges college town

July 11, 2017
What to do Ithaca NY

No, there’s no spelling mistake in the title, Ithaca truly is gorges! And I’ll tell you soon why 😉 As you may (or may not) know, New York isn’t only a world famous metropolis but also names one of the 50 states of the US of A (where New York City is actually part of). Simply called “upstate” by locals, there’s no way you would mistake the hectic city with the unhurried countryside. After over a month not leaving the…

Welcome to the Plitvice Lakes – Croatia’s surreal beauty

June 13, 2017
Plitvice what to see

Sometimes there are places which are too overwhelming and seem impossible to describe in a few words and photos. The Plitvice Lakes National Park in the heart of Croatia definitely belongs to those places. That’s why it took me almost two months to write an article about it. I had to choose from more than 300 photos and I thought it’ll be impossible to do so. But finally – after many hours of brain work and painful decisions – I…

Visiting Mu Koh Surin National Park

April 23, 2017
Surin islands day trip

Dear Thailand, I gotta tell you something: You’re spoiled. The amount of tropical islands that belong to your kingdom isn’t fair. And I doubt I’ll be able to visit all of them during my lifetime but I’m trying. It doesn’t matter how often I keep coming back to you, I’ll always end up with a longer bucket list. One by one I’m working my way through that list to finally make it to one of the remotest of all Thai…

Kuraburi and Si Phang Nga – touched by nature

April 13, 2017
travel Phang Nga province

I’m fascinated by the jungle. And I’m also afraid – or let’s say – I have a healthy portion of respect for it. One of the (many, many) reasons why I love Thailand so much, is the amount of well maintained national parks that take you closer to the eye of nature without loosing contact to civilization completely. And just when I thought I’ve seen it all, the country always comes up with something surprising… The most unexpected jewel of this trip…
