I just love Germany. I admire it so much. This country went through the most devastating wars -twice-. Destroyed in both of those wars and risen from the ashes, becoming the strongest economy and political power in Europe. The green is greener in Germany.
Italy essence is not only made of fabulous pasta and uplifting wine. There is something else that gives this country a special touch, a very distinctive feature: its people. Continue reading
From the ruins, comes life. And from both comes Rome.
Chaos and beauty. Noise and emptiness. Hoards of people and lonely travelers, like me.
I walked the city I once died for, living the exclusion and loneliness that followed me across the Ocean. I am mad at Rome. I stand at the bridge of Castel Sant’Angelo overlooking the Vatican.
I talk to her: I came here for you to fix me.
And she answered: You go places so they can fix you and finally find your track. And they can’t. That is your right and obligation. A curse and a blessing. Free will. Your responsibility.
When you see your life in ruins there is no one out there to blame. No place feels like home until we find it within ourselves.
I arrived to Brussels from Amsterdam in a (yet another) Flixbus at about 10pm. I usually try not to arrive late to a new city. But I wanted to spend the day in Amsterdam and since hostels were quite expensive for a Saturday night there, I decided to sleep over in Brussels which is 3 hours away. Continue reading
There is so much to say about this gorgeous, medieval town in Brussels. But I believe the best way to tell you about it is to let her speak for herself. Continue reading
This is my second time in my beloved Germany. But Berlin somehow doesn’t feel like Germany to me. And no wonder, this city has been built up again by two foreign, very different, countries. It is a melting pot full of cultures and people from all over the world. A Rainbow city. Continue reading
It is a sickness… But only the most privilege ones in the world have it.
This is my second time in the Austrian Capital. This second time, although during winter, I felt a “warmer” welcome. Continue reading
My favorite way to see this wonderful continent is by train. For me there is no better way of living travels. Landscapes passing one after the other, from a safe and comfortable train. With no restriction on baggage weight. In the era of everything rushed and fast, train travel gives you time. “Slow” train travel it is a privilege during these “fast times”.
Here I share my experience traveling from the everlasting Roma passing through the incredible magical Ljubljana in Slovenia, arrive to the dream come true that is Zagreb in Croatia and end this train adventure in Imperial Vienna.
I call this a fantastic way of starting this fantastic new year 🙂
Grab a good book, bring yourself snacks and drinks and enjoy the scene Continue reading
As many of you know I started my trip in April this year, but the truth is I started it many years ago, when I was just a kid with big dreams of travel. I left my office job, my nice apartment in a small comfortably well-known city in the US to go on a one way trip.
I just knew the three first stops, after that… Who knew? Continue reading
