Have you ever heard about Liechtenstein? It is a small country that lies between Switzerland and Austria, so small that my bus trip to cross it took just 20 minutes! The capital is Vaduz, and being such a small country, it still can have a town larger than the capital!

I did that same mistake, thinking that one long weekend would be enough, and… Continue reading What to visit in Malta in 4 days?

Dresden is a city I love, I lived there for 11 months while I was in Erasmus. When I decided to move to Dresden I didn’t even had a clue about the city.
