Bungee jumping, climbing, canyoning and other attractions in Slovenia

Bungee jumping, climbing, canyoning and other attractions in Slovenia
Slovenia is located between the Alps and the Balkans. The visitors can enjoy rock climbing, bungee jumping, rafting, canyoning, ice cold rivers, green forest, mountain scenery and plenty of space. It is more than that. I call it the paradise for activity enthusiasts and the hidden pearl that should be permanently placed on European adventure ...

Via Ferrata Trip

Via Ferrata Trip
The local mood also follows the change of the official language from German to Italian. It starts to feel Mediterranean vibes and lighthearted lifestyle. This is probably the most wild part of Switzerland, which we eventually leave. We drove to the Italian side of Lake Como, which is reflecting in turquoise tones. The lake is ...

Interesting places in Liechtenstein and Switzerland

Interesting places in Liechtenstein and Switzerland
Following the Rhine, we arrive at the spectacular Rhine Falls in Neuhausen. It is the largest waterfall in Europe, as measured by the amount of flowing water. In winter the average flow is 250 cubic meters per second while in the summer it can go up to 600 m³ per second. A bit further in ...

How to fix a clutch in Freiburg?

How to fix a clutch in Freiburg?
Even though the clutch in my bus has broken right outside the city limits of Colmar, I still think it is a charming Alsatian town. Something simply went a bit wrong. I have no idea where to find a car mechanic not to mention the challenging task of describing the problem in French. It is ...

Alsace and the Upper Rhine trail

Alsace and the Upper Rhine trail
Rhine River originates on the hilly slopes of the Swiss Alps and it gradually grows in strength with every kilometer it passes. Its headwaters set boundaries for the three European countries: France, Switzerland and Germany. Being in the area it is worth to visit all of these. I’m enchanted not by the Swiss scenery, but ...

Traversée: 61km / 4100m of Swiss adventure

Traversée: 61km / 4100m of Swiss adventure
Summer is the best time to pack your own hand-made recreational vehicle with all sorts of sports equipment and set off on an adventure journey through Europe. On one side I do love traveling with no specific plans nor itineraries, however, it is quite useful to have some sort of culmination point, an objective that ...

Once upon a time in Paris

Once upon a time in Paris
If you are crossing France you do not need a map. The capital by some strange sort of coincidence will always be on your way. I still have about two days before my friend’s wedding. The venue is in Beauvais near Paris, so I decide explore that area for the next couple of days. By ...

Belgian beer and chocolates

Belgian beer and chocolates
I came to Belgium in the middle of completely hot summer, out of curiosity. I rarely travel in that part of Europe so it is even more interesting to visit a country commonly associated with beers and chocolates. We drive my yellow bus from the Luxembourg side and arrive to Rochefort, a random town on ...

Nature hikes in Luxembourg

Nature hikes in Luxembourg
If you look at the map of Europe, Luxembourg is hardly noticeable. Roughly forty percent of this half a million nation are immigrants. It seems that Luxembourg is commonly associated with tax evasion, countless financial institutions and so-called headquarters of global corporations. In this tiny country there are registered nearly 150 different banks that hold ...

Some things to see in Copenhagen

Some things to see in Copenhagen
I happened to be in Copenhagen several times, either passing by or coming for shorter or longer visit. Once I even lived there for some time.  I got up in the morning and just like other Danes I cycled into town. This was the most convenient way to meet local people and get to know ...

Among Chilean volcanoes

Among Chilean volcanoes
We are in Cunco, a small village in the region of Araucanía in Chile. As the name rightly suggests, this terrain is populated with araucaria trees. We stock up and head towards Lake Colico. The first car we encounter pulls over to offer us a ride. It’s a giant, heavily overloaded Dodge RAM 2500. Its hood is ...

Santiago de Chile & around

Santiago de Chile & around
Santiago is huge city. How can you start with it? Incidentally I discover that Maja, a friend from collage has lived here for several months already. This is an ideal opportunity to meet her and hear some stories about realities of living in Chile. I think in every capital it is tricky to enjoy the ...

Landscapes of Atacama Desert

Landscapes of Atacama Desert
Northern region of Chile is famous for surreal landscapes created by nature. It takes a few long days of driving to reach northern part of the world’s longest country. Finally, together with Dorota and Światek we all arrive to San Pedro de Atacama, a desert town located next to the Bolivian border. It is perfect base ...

Penguins and sea lions

Penguins and sea lions
It’s time for some adventures from Chile. The car ride from Santiago towards Atacama offers intense experience with semi-arid landscape. The road north meanders between the ocean on the left and the Andes on the right. The predominant view of bushes and cactus is rarely replaced with some vineyards, olive plantations, or abundant wild plants ...

Mandalay by the Ayerarwady river

Mandalay by the Ayerarwady river
Mandalay is a flat city. During the day it is hot as a frying pan. Vertical-horizontal arrangement of the city’s streets makes it easy to find your way, so it is quite unlikely to get lost here. This morning I’m meeting Vera. A few days ago we agreed that our roads would join here. As ...
