ULTIMATE PACKING TIPS

When it comes to packing, I assure you the best way to pack your belonging on holiday is to PACK LIGHT. Trust me, I’ve been through a month with my 20-something kg suitcase, around 10 kg backpack, and another 3-5 kg of handbag, and one thing I can tell you that they’re pain in the ass. Imagine! Three bags with more than 30 kilos in total, combined with a very busy schedule jumping from one city to another! I don’t know what was I thinking. This is definitely the biggest mistake I did while planning for my trip.

PARIS FROM ABOVE

That’s not a secret that I love being at heights, I love riding planes, I love crazy high rollercoasters, I just love to see everything from above and have wider vision.

Being a flat city, Paris has changed me 100%. In my 5 days stay in Paris, I climbed several domes and hundreds of stairs, I didn’t even know who I am. Here’s several places to enjoy Paris from above.

LA SAGRADA FAMILIA – BARCELONA, SPAIN

La Sagrada Familia is a Roman-Catholic basilica, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi (1852–1926). It was actually just a church at the beginning, and later on had been a cathedral, until 2010 when it was consecrated as a basilica by Pope Benedict XVI.

What makes this basilica special are the architectural design, its gigantic size, and the fact that it  hasn’t finished yet and still under construction after 134 years (started 1882). The expected completion time is 2026, which ironically will be the 100th years after Gaudi’s death.

THE PERKS OF TRAVELING SOLO

I remember some random day about this time of the year about 2 years ago when solo traveling came into my mind. I don’t remember where I got the idea but it struck me all of sudden. Nine months later, at one cold night, I found myself standing outside London St. Pancras Station, all alone after 30 hours journey with my 20 kilos suitcase and looking forward to spend a whole month visiting beautiful places all by myself.

HOW TO SPEND A DAY IN LONDON

If you have just one day in London, or if you visit London for the first time and want to see the highlight about what London is all about, my suggestion is to walking down the River Thames. It is the largest river in England and flows through London with bunch of London’s iconic landmarks along the river. So you’ll see quite a lot and apparently it’s super cheap! I did that on my first day in London, more than a year ago and never regret it.
