•••
The first time I visited London was on a stop-over from Australia to Rome and I had a measly 24 hours to explore the city.

I left feeling overwhelmed and deflated, crushed by the hectic pulse of the[...]

Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe; just a few hours by plane from many European cities, but underrated and still unknown to many.

Travel burnout? I hear you cry. What a very privileged concern to suffer from. But let me set the record straight.

10 secret spots not to miss in Milan

•••
I have to be honest, the first time I visited Milan, I expected something different. Something more fashionable, something more romantic, something more beautiful. But expectations are a dangerous thing to have and I learned that you should never judge a book by its cover. So I looked beyond and slowly got to know the beauty of Milan. Milan might not have[...]
