Recently I went to Paris for the first time, and because it was my first time, I made sure to check all the must-visit spots. But I had 10 days in the city, much more time than people usually spend in Paris, that’s why I wanted to do some less known things as well. So I did Google research and made a short list of things that I enjoyed doing in Paris and that didn’t spring to my mind before I did my research.
There are between 20-40 low-cost airlines in Europe. Some low-cost airlines are much bigger and popular than others and fly everywhere in Europe, while others are smaller and have a limited choice of flights. All of them share one thing: they made traveling affordable to so many people and now flying between two countries in Europe is almost as easy as taking trains or buses between two cities.
Autumn is a beautiful season in Germany and traveling to Germany in fall will give you a good opportunity to experience German culture. There are lots of fall festivals in Germany that you can attend during your visit. And while fall might be sometimes not the best time to visit Germany weather-wise, it is definitely one of the best times to experience German traditions. Germany has 4 distinct seasons and every season is different in terms of weather. There is probably no best time to visit Germany that will fit everyone. The best time to travel to Germany for you will depend a lot on the activities you want to do and whether they are they dependent on the weather.
If you are going to Switzerland for the first time, creating a perfect Switzerland trip itinerary might be not an easy task. Switzerland is a small country and you can cross it by train or car in just a couple of hours. But there so many beautiful places to visit in Switzerland, that it’s nearly impossible to fit them all in one trip, especially if your time and budget are limited. That’s why I decided to share 5 suggested Switzerland itineraries to help you create your own perfect itinerary. Adapt them to your preferences, available time and budget and enjoy your trip to Switzerland!
It’s time for another travel bucket list! When you think of traveling in Europe, islands might be not the first thing that comes to your mind. However, there are many beautiful and unique European islands to add to your travel bucket list. Today I am sharing the list of islands I would like to visit in Europe.
December is one of the best months of the year to visit Germany. Yes, it is cold. But there are Christmas markets in every city, town and even small villages and the atmosphere is just magical. Two years ago I was lucky to attend my first Christmas market in Germany. I need to admit that after seeing many other Christmas markets after that, it doesn’t feel so special anymore. But there is something that makes me go to the Christmas market again and again. As you probably guessed from the title, it is food and drinks.
If you are planning a trip to Switzerland and did a little research of things to do here, then you’ve probably heard of Jungfraujoch already. If you don’t know what Jungfraujoch is, give me high-five. I’ve never heard about it until my first trip to Switzerland. Because when you are in Switzerland as a tourist, it is impossible not to hear about the Jungfraujoch. The advertisement of the Top of Europe experience is everywhere. But what exactly is a Jungfraujoch?
Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in Europe at 3454 m above sea level. It is also one of the most popular and expensive tourist attractions in Switzerland. Because of the price, I didn’t want to go there for a long time but finally gave it a try this August. Was it worth the money? You can read my Jungfraujoch experience review at the end of the post. But first I want to share some tips on how to prepare for the trip and the best things you can do in Jungfraujoch.
You want to learn a new language but not sure which one to start with? Many people are simply attracted to a particular language, so choosing a language to learn is a no-brainer for them. Maybe they have friends from this country, they are interested in the culture or just fell in love with the sound of the language. Others think more about the practical benefits of learning foreign languages and don’t want to spend their time learning a language that they might never use. No matter how much I love the German language, I am not insisting that this is the best language for everyone everywhere in the world to learn. Depending on where you live, which job you have and your future plans, it could make more sense for you to learn Spanish, Chinese, Russian or some other language. But for everyone who is thinking to learn German, in this post, I attempt to answer why learning the German language might be an especially good idea for you.
For most first-time visitors in Switzerland Bern is usually not the top choice for a day trip. I totally understand it. In the country with such beautiful nature, why should you waste your precious vacation time to visit cities? Bern wasn’t also on my bucket list for a long time because I didn’t know if there were any fun things to do in Bern. But one time when I was looking for day trips to take from Zurich I googled the photos of Bern and decided that it was time to go there. And the city didn’t disappoint me, in fact, I’ve been already 3 times there.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about writing a travel bucket list. There are so many places in the world I want to see that sometimes it is hard to keep them all in mind. Whenever I nee to plan the next trip, I spend a lot of time thinking where to go instead of just picking one destination from the list. It will also be fun to look at the bucket list a few years later and see how much has happened already.
I wanted to write a list of countries to visit first but it didn’t work well. Some countries are more exciting than other and there are lots of things I want to do there. That’s why I decided to create a list for every country I want to visit. The first post is going to be about France for a special reason. At the moment I live right on the French-German border. I only need to cross the bridge to go to France and I can see the other side from the window of my apartment. However, the only part of France I have been to remains Alsace. And here is what is on wish-list.
