A lot of my articles are about certain villages, cities, regions or countries. Some however have a broader theme and focus on traveling as a whole.

Roads less traveled

I get a lot of satisfaction from exploring areas, cities and countries that haven’t been changed by mass-tourism yet. In this section I write about getting to these places, what to do there and my (sometimes intense) experiences there. Read more »
