Get lost in Maribor for 4 hours

Cat and mice Maribor

There was this cafeteria in the heart of the old town, a perfect escape with its shades on an extremely warm Wednesday. After the coffee kick I was ready to travel the city where old and new, odd and conventional, peaceful residents and loud football fans mixed surprisingly well. Pity that I only had a few hours in Maribor, but luckily I managed to make the most out of my brief stay. If you are around this Slovenian gem, this is how you can jump in the middle of the “small” city’s bustling everydays.

From AM to PM strolling the streets of Vicenza

Overdosing pasta and Carpaccio Italian style– part I.

A city pervaded by a great architect’s designs. A city amongst the wealthiest in the Northern part of the boot. With Verona to the west and Padova to the east Vicenza is often overlooked by the mass tourism, so luckily it managed to preserve its old charm. The winding cobblestone streets without the maddening crowds of visitors, gothic and renaissance arcades, hidden villas, elegant cafés, tiny shops coupled with the unparalleled architecture definitely put the city on the “must-see in Italy” list for all off the beaten track travelers. Among lots of small and medium size museums, graceful villas and churches I managed to find those hidden treasures I was looking for.

Berlin never sleeps

Berlin has always been a top pic among hip travelers. We love it for its profound history, abundant culture, underground bars and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It’s so wanted by the young crowd around the world that in a Lufthansa competition a Swedish guy – among 41 others – went as far as to change his name from the absolute normal Michael Andersson to hilarious sounding Klaus-Heidi (a mix of German male and female name) to win a new life in the German capital prepaid by the airline. So how Berlin can keep on attracting a good number of visitors year by year?
