Sunset in Tanah Lot temple, Bali

Bali has many scenic locations to dream away while the sun sets, that’s for sure. But some of them are just simply emblematic, and missing them is a sin… and the temple of Tanah lot is one of these! Tanah lot is an extended temple complex on the west coast, and one of the most sacred temples of Bali. It is about 45 minutes away by scooter from the “touristic center” near Kuta and Seminyak. The ride is a whole…

Cadaqués, the home of Salvador Dali

No matter if you are an art or nature lover, Cadaqués is one of the villages you should not miss out on if you are visiting Barcelona, and even Catalonia. Located close to the French border, in the middle of the breathtaking natural reserve of Cap de Creus, this village stole the heart of the famous surrealist painter Salvador Dali, who built his house here, that served as his main residence. He had his reasons to choose this picturesque village,…

Malta and Gozo on a shoestring

Malta and Gozo on a shoestring

  A couple of years ago, when I just settled down in Barcelona, I did a trip with a couple of friends to Malta – which ’till then sounded to me just like one of the unimportant countries of the list we had to memoriwe at school of the European Union.

This East-European city is becoming more and more popular in the last couple of years, and…

On top of Catalonia – Montserrat

On top of Catalonia – Montserrat

Exploring Montserrat is the first thing I would recommend you, if you are so lucky to have a spare day to spend in Barcelona and you fell like exploring the surroundings of the city. And if you love hiking of course! Just a bit over an hour away from the city by public transport (and even less if you can get your hands on a car, which actually is the cheaper option if you are more than 2 people), you will discover this…
