becoming a roller coaster person

It was four years ago when I stepped in Disneyland for the first time. It had been a lifelong dream. I grew up with Disney, was educated by its movies, its storytelling, its songs. For the good and for the bad. Disney told me I should never give up on my dreams, while at the … Continue reading becoming a roller coaster person

Talks about diversity & inclusion in Amsterdam

Damn grey 'Dam I haven't been doing much in my life aside from working, working and working. March has started already. It's a weird feeling. In a way, it seems like it has come so fast, in another perspective there is so much I am looking forward to that still seems so far away. And … Continue reading Talks about diversity & inclusion in Amsterdam

A 2nd time in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina

This time it was cold. The forecast was -15 Celsius degrees for one of the days. On the plane I could see the mountains covered in white, and when landing little pieces of cloud or falling on us.  I had been in Sarajevo before and was not impressed. This was yet another work trip. And … Continue reading A 2nd time in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina

A short photo gallery of Paris

The view from the Arc du Triomphe  I've written about Paris. How I could never see the magic people see in this city so often. The ultimate romantic destination, home of the haute couture, the highest fashion labels I can only admire from a distance. The birthplace of artists and philosophers, the city of the … Continue reading A short photo gallery of Paris

A weekend in Stockholm

The more I see of the world, the more I want to see. I guess this is a curse of suffering from acute wanderlust. I find myself often dreaming about the next trip when I just came out of one. Dreaming about weekend breaks, full on weeks exploring different places and even planning to quit … Continue reading A weekend in Stockholm

Fall inspiration from Stockholm

I couple weeks ago, a couple friends and I went for a weekend in Stockholm. We had the flights booked for a long time. It was the perfect time and hours for a weekend break from a Saturday morning to a Sunday evening. It was indeed a very short time, but I had a taste … Continue reading Fall inspiration from Stockholm

The Baltics: Sigulda, Latvia

I am sure I'm not the only one out there who sometimes needs to run away. A lighter "drop out of society" situation (by the way, did you know there's a whole guide about it on Wikihow?! It's hilarious!) I know I could never drop out of society completely. I would die of boredom and … Continue reading The Baltics: Sigulda, Latvia

The Baltics: Helsinki, Finland – the closest I’ve been to Santa Claus

After trotting through the Baltic capitals, I ended my trip in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. After walking in the narrow streets of some of the best preserved European old towns, stepping in cobblestone roads for about a week, Helsinki welcomed in its own metropolitan greatness. A modern city, with a hint of class and … Continue reading The Baltics: Helsinki, Finland – the closest I’ve been to Santa Claus

The Baltics: Tallinn, Estonia – the real-life medieval fair

When arriving in Estonia, I was feeling pretty exhausted. It was already late in the day and I had been travelling non-stop for five days already (not that I'm complaining). Plus, to make things a bit worse, the weather looked awful. I could see the heavy and dark clouds getting closer as we approached Tallin. … Continue reading The Baltics: Tallinn, Estonia – the real-life medieval fair

The Baltics: Riga, the flamboyant Art Nouveau District

-- ART NOUVEAU IN RIGA -- I have already posted about Riga, the biggest metropole of the Baltics. I wished I had spent more time there, but I have unsteady feet and well, I wanted to see as much as I could. Riga is particularly special because it is the city with the biggest number … Continue reading The Baltics: Riga, the flamboyant Art Nouveau District
