Tassen Museum, Amsterdam – enjoyable trip inside famous bags and purses!

A person’s bag or a purse is a personal affair. It can tell a story or shed a light on someone’s personality. A purse can be an extension to our wallets, for the things which are precious to us but too big to fit in our wallets. It can store memories, travel souvenirs, everyday essentials. […]

Living on a houseboat in Amsterdam – Hendrika Maria story.

I have started my day with a cup of coffee and a bite to eat for breakfast in the cafe on the nearby roundabout. On a Saturday morning at 9am Amsterdam was calm and strangely quiet. Just a few passersby, with a purposeful and quick walk,  went by my table, looking straight ahead. A friendly […]

The last home of Marie Antoinette – the Conciergerie

The never ending day – Eiríksjökull glacier in Iceland.

At 12 o’clock at night you could still see as well as during an early morning, when the world is slowly waking up. I felt like our day would never end. The night was simply not coming, stripped out of an opportunity to introduce herself. In four hours we were due to catch our flight […]

Adega do Cantor, Portugal – NOT ONLY Sir Cliff Richard vineyard.

What is a “white lie”? Simply put it is an action of stretching the truth to an acceptable state. Acceptable enough means having something in common with the facts.

The spiky green and the sheep – Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands looks like pyramids growing effortlessly out of the sea. During the tourist season the hills are incredibly green and sharp, stinging the sky with no mercy. Countless waterfalls cut the hills, descending down rapidly, feeding the grass, helping it achieve this incredibly deep greenness.
