Beer spa in Prague

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 […]

Visit to the Neuschwanstein castle

I couldn’t go to Germany, spend 3 days in Munich, 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 […]

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is one of the most visited cities in Europe. I honestly understand why! Although there’s 800000 inhabitants living there, the city is enjoyable. Amsterdam is also the cultural capital of the Netherlands. Indeed, there are dozens of museums in the city, some of them being cultural, others quirky. Oh […]

Things to do in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam. When visiting the Netherlands, a lot of people ignore Rotterdam, and just go to Amsterdam. That’s a huge mistake! Rotterdam is a wonderful city, and you have to go visit Rotterdam if you’re in the Netherlands. My visit to Rotterdam was full of surprises, […]

Things to do in Batumi

I didn’t plan to go to Batumi. The original plan was to go to Caucasus, starting with Georgia and its capital, Tbilisi. And from there go straight to Armenia. But I had been hearing about all the things to do in Batumi, how great the city was. “Are you going to Georgia? Go to Batumi!” […]

What to do in Tbilisi

Aaaah… It feels so damn good to not be stared at like a circus freak! I’m definitely not in Ukraine anymore! Here in Tbilisi, people clearly don’t give a fuck, they just go about their business. Some people stare at me (it’s normal!) but that’s it. Some teens ask for a high five, but nothing […]

Things to do in Ostrava

dolni vitkovice ostrava

Ostrava is the third largest city in the Czech Republic (after Prague and Brno). However, few people decide to go visit Ostrava, and content themselves with a visit to Prague when going to the Czech Republic. Indeed, the city is located far east in the country, 350 kilometers (220 miles) away from Prague. It’s not […]

Visit to Baku in Azerbaijan

bakou azerbaidjan

My visit to Baku didn’t start out well. I had been in Armenia just before, and as I was explaining on my post about Yerevan, Armenia and Azerbaijan are not in good terms at all. Actually, it’s impossible to go to Azerbaijan from Armenia (and vice versa). I had to go back to Tbilisi in […]

“Sorry, the Yerevan free walking tour scheduled in two days is cancelled. We completely forgot about it, but the day after tomorrow, it’s Vardavar!“ Huh? What the hell is this?

I don’t really have good memories of Kiev, where I spent a few days. The highlight of the trip was the day I spent in Chernobyl. It really blew me away, and just for this, I didn’t regret my trip to Kiev. Thus I was a little disheartened about my next trip, to Odessa. In […]

The Cricova winery? I didn’t know. I’m not gonna lie… I’m not a big wine lover, and it’s pretty much impossible for me to tell you if this wine good or not, if it’s a fruity one, if it’s a strong one… I have an occasional drink of wine, but truthfully speaking, wine is not […]

I have to admit… I discovered the Therme Bucuresti by accident. Actually I didn’t even know this place before going to Bucharest. I’ve been to Budapest before, and I spent an afternoon enjoying the Szechenyi baths there. They’re quite popular and I knew about the place. But I didn’t know we could also find thermal […]

It’s impossible to go to Budapest, and not test out at least one thermal bath. Before going to Budapest, I had of course checked what I could do in the city (even though I already knew Budapest), and if there’s one thing that makes this city’s reputation, it’s the thermal baths. They’re numerous in Budapest. […]
