Unbelievable riding trip in Northern Iceland

June 19, 2018

I wake up early in the morning. It is still silent. Somewhere you can hear distant sounds of baby lambs and horses neighing. My room is already full of light – well, the sun hasn’t practically set at all during the night. From my window I can see snow-topped mountains in the horizon, surrounded by fields and herds of Icelandic horses. Hens are still half asleep on their perches and…

Will I return to Australia?

June 16, 2018

It’s been 13 months, when I left Australia. Moving there had been one of the biggest dreams I ever had, and actually making the final decision to go demanded a massive amount of courage and a bit of madness too. I had just received a permanent job contract after graduation, moved to a new city for my job and started my steady and respectable life as an adult.…

Crazy, crazier, Reykjavik

Reykjavik is the world’s most northern capital and a popular travel destination. Over 2 million people visit Iceland annually, most of them come to Reykjavik, and the amount of tourists is growing 20 % every year. This is a massive number of people if you bear in mind that Iceland has only around 300 000 inhabitants. Reykjavik is interesting, quirky, a bit of a paradox in many ways.…

Greetings from the Helsinki airport! It was only 5 days ago since I was at this Nordic, clean, modern and freaking expensive place last time (seriously, 15 euros for a piccolo bottle of sparking!). This time though, I am heading to a slightly colder climate. In just few hours I will start my horse-riding adventure in Iceland.  Sounds incredible, right? The plan for the trip is exciting to…

How much did my solo trip to Paris cost?

Paris has a reputation of being an expensive city. Maybe for this reason, it wasn’t until this May, I finally decided to visit the capital of France. Being a solo traveller, I had to be prepared to pay even more than couples of groups of friends, but I did not let this stop me this time. I want to be able to tick boxes on my travel wish list, and experiencing Paris in…

Travelling + Friendships

The idea for this post came from one of my readers. She wanted to know if I ever feel lonely and weather I have made any friends here in Malta. I think this questions is so good that it deserves a post of its own. Friends are one of the most important thing in life, but I have to admit that an unsteady life of travel creates some…

The world’s most famous smile

My second day on Paris started as sunny as the first one. I had one agenda above all: to see the most controversial and mysterious smile. I wanted to look Mona Lisa from eye to eye, and ask what secret is hidden behind that so mild but yet so interesting facial expression. Is it a secret love affair or just content happiness of having a child (she had her…

Greetings from the Orly airport! Here I am waiting to board my flight. In other words, this is a perfect moment to tell a bit about my past three days in Paris. I feel both happy and exhausted at the same time. These three days have been full from dawn to dusk with sightseeing, tens of thousands of steps, blisters and warm weather when the sun decided to bless Paris with +28…

Slow morning in Paris

      Bonjour to you all! I am resting at my hotel room and watching how the morning sun slowly kisses the Parisian balconies on the other side of the street. Different flowers are stretching themselves towards the warming sun, while people are getting started with their morning routines. Boulangeries and fruit shops are opening their doors and restaurant workers are organising outdoor tables into straight lines. The first customers…

Have you been to Paris? Tell about it! On this Sunday I will head to Paris for the first time of my life. I am excited but also a bit nervous to be honest. I am afraid that I will be disappointed because of my overly high expectations. I try to tell myself that the French can be a bit rude, that the city must be full of…
