I still have in mind the words pronouced by a friend of mine a few days before my first trip in Budapest, back in 2010. He had been there several times already. “Budapest, it’s the world capital of X-rated movies. And when you take a walk in the evening there, especially during weekends, you understand […]
Having a strong interest in traveling, I decided to leave my hometown, Paris, to travel around the world. Ayant un intérêt prononcé pour le voyage, j'ai décidé de quitter Paris, pour voyager à travers le monde.
Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is only about 60 kilometers away (40 miles) from Vienna. Yeah, Vienna is completely on the east of Austria, and Bratislava completely on the west of Slovakia. Therefore, we have two European capital cities about one hour away from each other. I met some people in Vienna who leave early […]
“They’re all fake as fuck in Austria, I’ve never seen that before!“. That’s what told me an Irish guy I met in Prague when I told him I was about to go to Vienna. “Oh and you’re french too!? They HATE french people! They think YOU french guys are hypocrites because you call them racists but […]
Having a beer bath, in a beer spa, who would have thought about it? Before starting my trip, I told myself I had to try new things, take advantage of different environments and attempt experiences I wouldn’t usually do back home in Paris. And truthfully speaking, I don’t know if I would have done it […]
It’s been quite some time I haven’t been in Prague. Actually last time was in 2007. I was still a student at the time, we went there for three days, and we basically spent the weekend drinking. Didn’t go back there since then, however once I got there I realized I still had vivid memories […]
I couldn’t go to Germany, discovering Munich, spend almost a week there, and not take at least a full day to go to the Neuschwanstein castle. I heard about this castle some time ago, I only knew it was located in Bavaria, and that it had been a source of inspiration for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. As […]
Beers, beers, beers… I think I didn’t have that many beers in a looong time. Actually, it’s hard not to drink any when you’re in Bavaria, exactly in Munich, where people drink beers just like we drink water. Yes, when you order a beer here in a typical bavarian bar, the waiter doesn’t bring you […]
20 swiss francs (18 euros) for a little salad and a bottle of water. I knew life was expensive in swiss but damn, not that expensive! So here I am in Switzerland, in Bern exactly, for a few days. And, not surprisingly, I didn’t see any backpacker. For those who travel on a budget, it’s […]
Roobens, D-day is finally coming… A trip that started to cross your mind about a year ago. For the last twelve months, youkeep thinking about it, you’re preparing it slowly but surely. One year you keep telling yourself “You have to do it now, before it’s too late. Otherwise, you’ll regret it all your life!“. […]
