(eestikeelne allpool) I’m changing these rainy days and falling leaves for some sunshine this week and heading off to Macedonia! An unconventional and under-the-radar choice, brought on by the budget flights of WizzAir, I’m hoping this will inject some necessary vitamin D to recharge. I think I’ve packed all the essentials, so I thought I’d share a few of them here too, in case any of you need a bit on inspiration to book a trip to under the sun. You can keep up with…Continue Reading “Packing For Macedonia: New Ins and Old Faves”

Here to cure your lunchtime hungers is the second part of my guide to Warsaw on all things eating and drinking! As I did some quite impressive research for this trip, including finding and saving so many amazing-looking cafés on Instagram, then even though we had a great apartment with a better kitchen than the one we have at home, we ate out most of the time. Of course it had to do with the prices in Poland – 15 euros was quite the standard for…Continue Reading “My Guide To Warsaw: Where To Eat”

Being right on the border of Eastern and Central Europe, Poland is a country of contrasts and definitely a sight. I recently had the opportunity to write a travel article about Warsaw, the Polish capital, and having never been there, I had to rely on my thorough Googling skills and the experience of friends to put the guide together. What I didn’t expect to happen, was that I managed to sell Warsaw as a destination to myself also, so the better part of this summer was…Continue Reading “My Guide To Warsaw: What To See”

I remember my first time at a secodn hand shop – one of my school friends took me to a shop she’d been to with her mom and we killed some time before her dance lesson. As a result, I bought a slightly cropped red-and-white roll neck jumper, which seemed to be the coolest thing ever, consider I was about 12 and had just spent a considerable amount of my pocket money on something that was my very own. That friend showed me loads more,…Continue Reading “Your Guide To All the Vintage In Tartu”

On our spring trip to The Netherlands I was set to visit Keukenhof, the tulip gardens in the Northern part of the country, because being a lover of all the cliches, this seemed too good to be true. Mirko however is very sceptical of all things touristy, but it was my birthday and a field of flowers was were I wanted to be, so we took on the daytrip from Utrecht to Keukenhof and back (with a snap visit to Primark in The Hague on…Continue Reading “Reasons To Visit Keukenhof – The Instagram Dream”

I’m not exaggerating when I say that half of our time spent in Utrecht was spent in its numerous cafés, having one locally roasted artisan cup of coffee after another and generally just people watching and taking in the awesomeness of the Dutch. I’m also not exaggerating when I say that a big reason why I wanted to go back to the Netherlands in general was so I could revisit my old favourites, check out if the same baristas still work at the same cafés…Continue Reading “Utrecht Coffee Guide”

Is it really strange that I don’t really like celebrating my birthday? I mean, I definitely love being celebrated on the day and I’m never one to pass an opportunity to have some cake, but during the recent years (this is the newly-turned-twenty-three wisdom talking) I’ve skipped the planning, the prepping, the worrying if anybody will come and subsequently, the clean-up of a party and turned to something a lot more special – travel. Since my boyfriend and I only have two months separating our birthdays, then…Continue Reading “Birthdays in Amsterdam”

How is it only 7 days until Christmas? December has really flown by this year, which makes my recent trip to London feel like ages ago, when it actually was only three weeks. But hey, take this tiny travel guide as a gift guide instead, I bet all of your moms would be thrilled to find plane tickets to London under the tree!  Kuidas on see võimalik, et jõuludeni on jäänud ainult seitse päeva? Detsember on sel aastal tõepoolest mööda lennanud ja mu hiljutine Londoni-reis…Continue Reading “My Tiny Guide To Notting Hill”

The title of this post is thoroughly justified, because Venice really feels like a living, breathing postcard that sucks you in to its little alleys of narrow houses and gondola-filled canals. One thing that you don’t see on the postcards (or the planned Instagrams), however, are the thousands of tourists swarming over the Rialto bridge and making their way through said alleys towards St. Mark’s square. Even though Pinterest paints a pretty picture of a romantic Venice, the reality was quite overwhelming (funfact: there are…Continue Reading “Postcards From Venice”

On to more Italian adventures, with Verona, the (un)official city of romance lined up! Although despite the fancy title, I didn’t particularly fall in love with it. It did provide some stunning views and gorgeous streets for some hand-in-hand lovey-dovey exploring, but having seen a fair few European old towns in my time, Verona didn’t really stand out too much. Of course our two days of walking were filled with oohing-and-aahing too, but instead of a full on city guide I decided to put together…Continue Reading “5 Tips For Verona”
