Paris – the city of love, light, and art. It is one of the most visited cities in the world. Rich in contrasts and the largest metropolitan area in Europe with 12 million people. Continue reading “Paris vs. Strasbourg”
I was away for quite some time now, and there’s no good excuse for that. I’m sorry for procrastination. I came back with a nice story and new experiences. Now let’s chase Danube legends once more! 🙂 Continue reading “Following The Danube – The Source Of Legends (Part 2)”
The old man was in a hurry to put a bowl of a milk closer to the cliff, from where he has been overwatching the Danube often. Hoping for the help he was praying to the aquatic fairy to save his boat and to clear the clouds for him. Continue reading “Following The Danube – The Source Of Legends (Part 1)”
Wroclaw – a colorful place in Poland that looks like the one from a story where the houses were made of chocolate and marmalade. 🙂 On purpose or by chance it has the best free animation for tourists that I have seen so far, chasing dwarfs is one of the funniest ways of sightseeing. For less than a dollar, I bought a paper map containing spots of the dwarf statues and I felt as if I were in a Pokemon game, but with group selfies and a retro map! 🙂
Of course, with its history, museums, Town Hall, Market Square, Ostrow Tumski with the “love bridge”, and all the other magnificent places, this city has so much more to offer, but to track Wroclaw’s dwarfs was an unusual experience. I was thinking a bit about their popularity among the visitors and the reasons for it.
That’s the thing with tourism, you always have to find a new way to amuse your guests. It’s not about chasing for what the competition has, it’s what you have and they don’t! We can not all be the same, the beauty lies in the difference and that’s how this city stands up, it’s unique. This seems to me like a good example of differentiation in a crowded market.
Legend says that if you touch the tongue of the bear statue in the square you will come back to Wroclaw, and thanks to our friends we found out for this just in time to secure our comeback in the future. 🙂
I love traveling by car. In June last year, my husband and I traveled from Belgrade to Paris in order to attend WordCamp Europe (it was great!). We took a slightly longer route and we traveled for more than 4000km within two weeks. Whenever we go by car, we make tours which include visiting various places, even if we only have one day for a break. If it’s a long trip from one big city to another, we make stops in smaller towns that we like or would like to see. Strangely, exactly those “on a side stops” often make a bigger impression on us than the “main destination”. 🙂 Also, it can cost less than the other means of transportation if you want to see the whole coast of Spain (like our friends) or 10 European cities in 14 days (like we did). 🙂 Continue reading “What Do You Need for a 4000km-Long Road Trip?”
