As usual, after a trip I always like to review how my preparation and organization went. Mostly how I pack, and it is interesting to see that not everything goes as expected. And of course, this trip wasn’t an exception, despite the fact that it was for just a weekend, but I still had to… Continue reading What did I pack for Malta?
2020 is a year that will stay in the memory of everyone. A eventful year, unfortunately mostly sad moments, but it is undeniable how memorable this year was for the whole year.

People often ask me how much I spend during my travels. Each person has their own way of traveling, therefore the travel cost will always be relative. However, two months should be enough to make a few assumptions, and during the whole trip I kept record of all my spendings. But, how much does it really… Continue reading How much would it cost to go to Australia for two months?
This year was amazing, and at last I checked out of my bucket list one of my travel dreams, this trip to Iceland! No, I didn’t see the Northern Lights, at least not with my bare eyes… (more about this in another article).

Once upon a time I used to surf couches, but now it seems like just another fairy tale… I still love the concept though, but nowadays I am more into hostels. Those times when I was hooked to couchsurfing, the main reason was the experience and contact I had with the hosts, never for the fact that… Continue reading Review of the hostels and B&B where I’ve stayed in Scotland
The year 2015 is ending, so let’s talk about traditions! Do traditions make any sense? Maybe some do, but in my opinion, the commemoration of the end of a year isn’t one of them, after all, that will depend on which calendar you use. In another words, it’s just a matter of perspective. However, sometimes those traditions… Continue reading The Year 2015 in Review and Goals for 2016

I have done these reviews and goals for a while, it is nice as a self-slap in the face and / or to see how things went good. Not that I try to follow my goals religiously, but I like to think of them as a path to follow, that some times it decides to… Continue reading 2013 Review and 2014 Goals

Last year I wrote the 2010 review and 2011 goals, which turned out to be surprisingly good therefore I’ll do again this year and see what happens.
In the beginning of this year I wrote a summary of what happened to me in 2009, a great year indeed preceded by a better year, 2008! Well, unfortunately I can’t say the same regarding 2010 and the name of this blog might give you that same idea.
