Europe, Italy

Cinque Terre was THE place to cross out of my bucket list this year. As soon as I started planning my six months trip back to Europe, I knew I was not going to miss the Cinque Terre again. So, as always, I started checking flights to start a new adventure in Italy, and made my plans so that I could visit this five fishing villages that were often mentioned as perfect.

Imagine having an exhausting travel day. You just arrived in Lisbon and all you want is to enter a place that makes you feel at home. You are walking up the final hill and you think if you see a bed to rest you won’t believe it. Then, a smiley face opens you the door. This person welcomes you as if you are entering someone’s home, they start treating you by your first name like you’ve been friends all along, and the feeling of being at home kicks in. The only hostel in the city that will make you feel like this? Lookout Lisbon! Hostel.

Seville was the last stop of my two weeks in Spain, and damn it was about time I visited this place!< For years I had heard about Seville, a city that was right there a little across the boarder, and still I made excuses every time I chose not to. This time I made it!

Europe, Inspiration

I just spent the night crying on my pillow, imagining the million things that could go wrong. I can’t stop shacking and telling me “flying is the safest mean of transportation” is not going to help me. No matter how many flights I take, being inside a giant heavy box, with no way out of it, with about 100 people I never met in my life, and thousands of feet of the ground, will never, ever, ever, feel normal and safe.

11029565_10203906386287749_8929217125857208476_n-1My plans for Bologna were a total mess from the start. I was in Florence already freaking out about not knowing where to go next. By the time I got to Venice I panicked and started to believe this solo travel thing just wasn’t for me and that I had to go home. Lucky for me, a friend of my (ex)boyfriend lived in Bologna and offered me a roof at his house. The catch? He was not in Bologna at the moment, so I would stay with his friends.

Warsaw is still a very misunderstood city in Poland, when you compare it to Krakow, Gdansk and all the small beautiful towns in the country. So, even after reading so many bloggers saying they couldn’t get out of Warsaw fast enough, I ended up basing myself there to explore the rest of the country. No, it wasn’t my plan, but things took a turn during my trip when I met a Portuguese girl in Bratislava, and she ended up opening the doors of her home to me.

When my train arrived in Assisi I was already happy about how my day was going. I had this good feeling that things were getting easier ever since my arrival in Umbria, and the day was nothing more than full of surprises.

I’ve read pretty much everywhere that if you really want to travel you’ll make it happen, as it’s not as expensive as people actually think, which I believe is absolutely true! Still, I’m here to give you a reality check on how saving money depends on the country you live in and the money that gets in your account by the end of the month.

I arrived in Granada after a long bus ride from Madrid. As usual I was lost and had to ask for directions to the city center as the map on my phone was showing me I was way too far from the center to walk. Bad news I had to catch two buses to get there. Good news, it was cheap and didn’t take that long anyway.
