Free things to do in Rotterdam

We always try to find some free things to see and do on our trips – and in our everyday life! We’ve now been living in Rotterdam for over a year and have explored this city extensively. It’s a great walking city and you can see a lot (for free) just by taking a stroll […]


Visit Devin Castle Bratislava for ancient ruins and impressive Danube River views

Devin Castle, Bratislava, Slovakia

We quite like Bratislava (we’ve now been there twice), but it’s small. You can easily check off the top things to do in Bratislava in a day. So if you’re looking for something else to do during your Bratislava visit, or just want to get out of the city center and into some beautiful, natural […]

We did quite a bit of research into our two-week Transylvania itinerary. And we knew we wanted to hit the major destinations like Brasov and Sibiu.

Our two week Transylvania itinerary

Transylvania Romania Itinerary

This June, we spent about two weeks in Transylvania, Romania. We absolutely loved our trip. We visited some of the most popular Romanian destinations and yet it felt like one of the least touristy countries we’ve been to in Europe.

Though we try not to only spend only one night in any place we visit, we’ve actually spent one night in Kaunas, Lithuania twice.
