I’m not sure what to write about Lyon. It left me empty and numb, just as its life seemed to be, although I appreciated the climbs and the relaxing banks.
Markets, city markets, where everything that can be offered gathers: food, music, people with their voices, products, bargains, styles, street … More
I saw this girl on her inspirational quest every day on my way out of the hostel and into the streets of Barrio Bellavista, Santiago de Chile, exploring as she seems to…
…there is a side where, because of feeling unlimitedly everything in us as it is here and now, we allow the place to touch us in ways it otherwise couldn’t and reveal layers of its own being we’d otherwise ignore.
The city that will always, no matter how I try to escape it, be my home. The one where I’ll notice the little things and the little people who have changed or haven’t.
I keep coming back to Valparaiso in these challenge-inspired posts and now, it is becoming clear why. It is the city where I had most fun, for sure.
We are in France, right? Officially, yes.
When you’re focused on that one or a few things you absolutely have to see, then you forget about the fun and the view you might enjoy on the way there.
Whether a stairway or an alley, I found that in Valparaiso, it is the narrow ones that steal most of its charm.
Charming isn’t the word I would ever use for this city, a hauntingly stretched metropolis if you view it and its ever spreading horizons from Cerro San Cristóbal. But then there is a certain feel of delight in the streets of my favourite quarters…
The forgotten quarter of French capital? By tourists, maybe. By locals, no.
It seemed to me that this city is the European capital of street music.
Vernon is where you step off the train from Paris if you go to Giverny, visiting Monet’s garden. Since it is on your way, why not take its streets for a quick walk and find houses, carrying history on their walls.
This city is perfect for solo-travellers. Every day there is a new treasure, waiting to be found.
I’ll never forget that weird Saturday afternoon 8 years ago when I arrived to Paris, alone for the first time…
Today is my favourite day of the whole year, especially because I get to experience it in Paris for the second time in a row. The day of the music.
There is a point in solo-travel when you get uncomfortably nervous.
Sometimes you have a conversation with a certain conclusion and then the conclusion appears on the wall next to you, … More

My favourite mini part of a big, dreamy and absolutely stunning mural made by various artists.
by Vhils. Just one of the beautiful faces he created from the empty walls of Paris.
It’s about the little things you find in life… or in a city. Parc de Belleville, Paris.
The hidden jewel in touristy Paris. And my new favourite street.
Streets of Rouen and Chartres.
The different faces of the beautiful South and South-West France.
…is a puzzle. Definitely.
Oh the charms of the country with the loveliest streets…
I have to ask: Do you imagine London markets without music? Port Vell in Barcelona? Lisbon or Paris metro? Jardin … More
