  • Our bad experience with Student Agency and the bus from Vienna to Brno

    Screenshot from the video of the Student Agency bus Brno-Vienna leaving earlier, bus in the circleScreenshot from the video of the Student Agency bus Brno-Vienna leaving earlier, bus in the circle

    With a last minute decision taken on the same day, we chose to attend a workshop in Czech Republic, to learn how to climb trees and build tree houses. Since European Union was reimbursing us 70% of the travel cost, this time we decided to go by train and bus, instead of hitchhiking, with a total 30 hours trip by land, so that we

  • Calcata: the bohemian soul of a traditional Italian village

    Last year we arrived in Rome just 2 days before Easter, specially to celebrate with Davide's family. When I heard that we were going to visit a traditional Italian village, Calcata, in the second day of Easter, I was imagining old people staying in front of their houses in a rocking chair with a fat cat purring in their

    After our first stop in Saint Marie de la Mer, we continued our exploration of the Camargue and Rhone Delta areas, visiting the fortified city of Aigues Mortes and its Salt Works, seeing plenty of pink flamingos on the way. Aigues Mortes literally means "Dead Water" because of the salty marshes that rule here since ancient

    During our travel in south of France last year, we decided to visit the Camargue and the Rhone Delta region, packed with natural wonders and beautiful birds. We often heard about this destination on our trips, and we thought it was the perfect moment to catch the opportunity.

  • Balkan Travel: Sarajevo's living history

    War marks on a block of flats in SarajevoWar marks on a block of flats in Sarajevo

    Besides the busy avenues crowded with tourists and attractions, Sarajevo's suburbs hide an intense history that shaped its international fame. I dedicate this second part of our story to the Bosnian War of Independence, with it's devastating Siege on Sarajevo, and the scars it left behind. About 20 years ago, the life of its

  • Balkan Travel: Our experience in Sarajevo

     While we were hitchhiking in Bosnia, we found diversity everywhere we went. We were amazed and intrigued by the contrast between the colorful touristic center of Sarajevo, dynamic Balkan music, busy night life and the dark history of war behind it.

  • 10 things you didn't know about Venice: the Casino for free, the canals and more

    A gondolier fishing from his gondola in the canals of VeniceA gondolier fishing from his gondola in the canals of Venice

    Venice is one of my favourite cities, and that's probably not that uncommon. What I like the most of Venice is not only the amazing architecture, the canals, the unusual, unique, decadent look: it's the silence. You wouldn't believe it since it's crowded with tourists, but the silence that you can experience in Venice, won't greet

    Directions in Aniene ValleyDirections in Aniene ValleyIn these weeks of forced stop in Rome, my hometown, we are keeping us entertained with our bicycles. Cycling in Rome is a mission: it's very dangerous if you are not used to, because there are no cycling paths, people drive like crazy and they have no respect for cyclists. But it's still the fastest way to move in such a big

  • Have you ever slept in a toilet? We did! Our longest day hitchhiking over the Arctic Circle in Norway

    Oti hitchhiking in the snow in NorwayOti hitchhiking in the snow in Norway

    One of the strongest memories we keep from our last trip in Norway while hunting for the Northern Lights, is hitchhiking over the Arctic Circle from the city of Fauske trying to go north; an epopee that kept us stuck for 26 hours in the same spot under heavy snow and forced us to sleep in a toilet! Hopefully an hitchhiking

  • Wild camping in Chernomorets, Bulgaria

    This is the place that I found in Chernomorets, Bulgaria, a perfect spot for wild camping. An abandoned pier going over the Black Sea and far away from the crowds leaving me completely isoleted, but still close enough to catch free wireless from inside my tent!

  • Urban Camping in Ljubiana

    Sleeping under the bridge of the main square in LjubianaSleeping under the bridge of the main square in Ljubiana

    While travelling on a budget, 95% of the time we are able to find a real bed and hospitality for the night. But in the rare occasions that it's not happening, urban camping is a must, and creativity the law. This is probably the most central place I ever slept in while travelling: under the bridge of the main square in Ljubiana

    This is the story of my 954 days amazing travel around Europe without flying.
