Dambulla, Central Province, Sri Lanka for Dambulla Cave Temple

Dambulla Cave Temple is one of the most important sacred sites in Sri Lanka, so it attracts a great number of both tourists and pilgrims. It took us about two hours on the bus to reach Dambulla from Kandy (we took the regular kind), so be prepared for a bit of a trek. The entrance…

Oslo, Norway for The Kingdom of Queens, Kings, Vikings and Aurora Borealis

Heading to Norway you should visit not only Oslo, but other cities as well, each with its unique landskape and history. So if you have enough time and resourses to travel around the country, you should not miss: 1. Oslo: The capital of Norway is the most multicultural place in Scandinavia. The town is not…

St Petersburg, Saint Petersburg, Russia for Veniece of the North

I just got back from my holiday from St.Petersburg and I miss the town already. My boyfriend and I was planning this trip from a very long time, preparing every single step of our journey. We made a list with all sights, restaurants to eat and routes we were supposed to use during our three-day…

Gates, OR, United States for Opal Creek Trail (Portland Day Trip)

Staying in Portland or even visiting there are tons of day trips right outside of the city. Opal Creek Wilderness is only about a 2 hour drive from the city. This makes it a great day tripping destination. You can hike all the way to three pools… or simple put… Opal Pool! What isnt to…

Budapest, Hungary for Forgotten Social Realism

I have to admit, my past experiences with Budapest weren’t always great. I had been there twice, once in 2004 for a long weekend and in 2006 for Radiohead concert at the Sziget Festival and both times something went awry and I returned home in disappointment. This time, however – I had a blast. We…

London, United Kingdom for Fun on a Tight Budget

People always seem to have polarized feelings about London – either they think it’s the best city in the world or they think it’s horribly over-priced, over-populated and pretty much over-anything. I have to admit my own thoughts on London fluctuate quite a bit even to this day, but I have come to believe that…

Lofoten for Distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks

When you traveling to Norway, you should definitely visit the northen part of the country or so called Nordland, where Lofoten archipelago is situated. The archipelago itself is consisted of six major islands Austvågøy, Vestvågøy, Flakstadøy, Moskenesøy, Værøy, Røst. Rich sea life, coral reefs, high mountains and the beautiful, devine nature makes this place the…

DMZ, South Korea for A Safe Step into North Korea

If someone told me a couple of years ago, or even six months ago, that I’d be casually standing on the North Korean soil, I’d laugh in their face. But fast forward to December, I ended up participating in a cultural exchange program between South Korea and my country, and as a part of our…

Šibenik, Croatia for SuperUho Music Festival

So the idea of an indie-rock music festival is usually not the first thing to come to mind when someone mentions Mediterranean resorts – but it seems SuperUho festival is here to prove us wrong. Held in the awe-inspiring St. Michael Fortress located on top of the town, it gave the shows a novel and…

Amarillo, TX, United States for Cadillac Ranch

On Route 66 just west of Amarillo, Texas on the south side, you will find Cadillac Ranch. Cadillac Ranch is a collection of 10 classic Cadillacs buried nose-first into the ground. You can basically do whatever you want here without messing up the structure. Bring spray paint and put your mark on Cadillac Ranch, its…

Victoria, BC, Canada for Weekend; Stayed in an airbnb house

Heading to Victoria, British Columbia, with three grandparents in tow, we needed a place that could sleep 6 adults and two kids. Enter this beautiful and fun 1950’s house on a quiet street northeast of the harbor in downtown Victoria. We caught the M.V. Coho out of the Black Ball (https://www.cohoferry.com/) ferry line in Port…

Detroit, Michigan for “The Belt” An Alley Transformed

“She is larger than life, alluring, and hauntingly beautiful. A Japanese Geisha, standing about 16 feet tall and cloaked in a collage of colors and graffiti, stares endlessly at passersby in the alley now known as ‘The Belt’ – The stunning mural, sure to make people stop and return the gaze, is just one of…

Seattle, Washington for Link Light Rail

An easy ride on a slick new light rail train can make your work commute or even a day of Seattle sightseeing much easier than driving through traffic and worrying about where to park the car. Seattle’s Link Light Rail is currently a 19 mile light rail system that connects University of Washington’s campus (at…

Detroit, Michigan for Eastern Market

Looking for lunch? Dinner for tonight? You need to visit the Eastern Market in Detroit to find farm fresh fruits and vegetables in a six block area. Mix in some art, street music, and a great place to do some serious people watching. This place is pulsing with people, sounds, and smells. Located a mile…

Detroit, Michigan for The Heidelberg Project

The Heidelberg Project is a quirky, strange, art-filled, weird place that you just have to visit. Seriously, yes you do, because you won’t ever forget it. It began as an outdoor art project in a tough part of Detroit in 1986 by Tyree Guyton. At first a political protest, Guyton, back home from serving in…

Snoqualmie Pass, Washington for Short Hike on the PCT

Needed a short break to stretch the legs so stopped at Snoqualmie Pass ski area, parking at the Lodge Lake Trailhead. The trail climbs easily through scrubby forest for about a half mile, when all the sudden you pop out of the woods and you are hiking on the slopes of Snoqaulmie Pass’ ski runs….

Bremerton, Washington for US Navy Ship Graveyard

Do you need to get the kids out of the house and away from electronic devices? Do you want to do something that is free? Sounds good, doesn’t it? So give this a try if you live near Bremerton, Washington. Go check out the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility (NISMF) in Bremerton. In other words,…

Seattle, Washington for Chihuly Garden and Glass

Though on the pricey side ($22 for adults and $14 for kids as of spring 2016) it was well worth the cost to see this amazing exhibit. I was a bit skeptical (mainly because of the cost), but I was pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful glass work that filled this place. Thoughtfully displayed, the…

Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, Ireland for a glorious hike around Glendalough

We stayed the night in the Kukoo Hut at Rivervalley Holiday Park in Redcross. This tiny town has a lone grocery store with not much in it along with Giovannis Take Away which had great hamburgers and fries which we took to our Kukoo Hut for dinner. The Kukoo Hut is small; a double bed…

Muckross Lake, Co. Kerry, Ireland for A Hike

I always like a good hike in an interesting place. This hike began at Muckross House and Gardens 5km south of Killarney (Co Kerry, Ireland). The house and gardens can get a bit crazy with all the people but they tend to stay there and not take the 9.3 mile/15 km trail (not sure if…
