Xian

Next stop on our journey through China was a city of Xian, known also as Chang’an, which means an eternal city.

Since it is located far from Hangzhou (in the North West, however, more central part of the country), we travelled there by plane. This city is especially interesting from the historical point of view, as it was a birth place of the ancient Chinese civilization, and its first capital.

Hangzhou

Hangzhou is located in Zhejiang Province in East China. We got there from Shanghai by fast train (it is 176 km away), and you can see it in the picture below. It was the first time when experience this kind of a travel. Certainly it was quick and very comfortable.

Conquering China- Shanghai

Shanghai was the first stop on our trip through China. I was very curious about it as I have not been in such a big and populated city before, apart from Istanbul. This is the most populous city in the world (aprox.24 mln), and also one of the major centers of global trade, with the world’s third biggest port.

Berlin

Berlin is located close to my hometown (it’s just 3h driving), but even that I have visited this city only last year. Possibly it would not extend in time some much, if not the fact that about 10 years ago I have moved to Romania, which is more far away.

Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina

For those planning to take some time off, having in mind hot weather, lying on the beach and great suntan – Croatia will be perfect. Every year, the stunning coastline of this country invites numerous tourists to come and rest.

The Best of Cape & the Kruger National Park

South Africa has a lot to offer to its visitors. This most southern country of the African continent is very various in natures and the landscape. The temperatures are very pleasant, as they do not go below 10’C and more than 32’C during the year. Only high in the mountains you can find some snow.

Christmas in a different way.

South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Christmas time for me means family and my favorite way to spend it is this way, with my family. However three years ago we decided to spend them in a different way. We visited South Africa, amazed by the stories told by our friends who have visited this country before. First we thought to go just after the Christmas time, but because of the much higher plane tickets prices we were somehow pressed to leave on the Christmas Eve.

Portugal by car

Portugal has a very well-developed highway system. That is why; we have decided that the car will be the fastest and most comfortable means of transport to visit the places we wanted to. We rented a car and planned the route that ended in the city of Porto.

Portugal

Lisbon

Portugal is a country that you hear a lot about, particularly during history classes. After all, it is the country of the great explorers such as: Vasco da Gama or Bartolomeu Dias. It is thanks to the incredible history of this country, that Portugal is known all around the world and Portuguese descendants inhabit various regions of the world that used to be its overseas colonies.

Morocco_part 2

While in Marrakesh, we decided to purchase a trip to Ouzoud Falls which are situated close to the Atlas Mountains. The trip took us around 2,5 hours. A perfect duration for a for a one-day trip. Unfortunately, it is impossible to visit the waterfalls on one’s own…
