Required Iran visa picture
Hands down, Iran was the most intriguing country for me to visit. I anticipated, researched and tried to imagine it. The emotions were mixed with fear, coming from poor understanding of the destination and even worse perception created by western-media, and with the excite […]

The question most frequently asked from us, after “Where are you now”, is: “Are you two still together”? Well,  personal drama is always somewhat more interesting and compelling than yet another travel story, but what about the fact that we have been able to make peace with each other eve […]

Kurbam Bayram – we had heard that name before in Çanakkale and we knew that something was going on during the weekend we were arriving in Izmir, but we could only dream in our wildest dreams to be actually part of this important Muslim celebration up close.

Visiting Serbia often means arriving in its capital called Belgrade (or Beograde for Serbians) which translates to White City.

Bosnia and Herzegovina had already surprised positively in many ways, but it remained unsure what to expect from Sarajevo. Going to the capital cities always gives us mixed emotions. They can be pretty big and boring if you don’t have any local showing you the hot spots around. Pictures in ou […]

When we entered Bosnia and Herzegovina, we did not know much about the country.

…. but not so much for backpackers.

 Now sit back, relax, and imagine turquoise waters, where rocky hilltops climb up to the blue skies and warm sun peaks through the palm trees, while you are sitting in a nice sea-view restaurant and enjoying your mussels picked with fig jam. Yes that’s […]

First of all, getting to Slovenia from Heviz, Hungary can be a very-very-very long trip. For us it consisted of having to stand under the mid-day sun with no shade to be found; getting dropped off in the middle of cornfields after misled to believe it was the BEST place on Earth to hitch-hike from; […]
