Things To Do in Bucharest: For First Time Visitors

Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is an attractive city for visitors looking to experience something different and authentic. In case you’re planning to visit Bucharest for the first time, here are my Things To Do in Bucharest based on my latest trip there. Bucharest weather, during my visit, was cold since I visited in February so you'll notice that my photos are not so bright and colorful. Explore the Old Town Bucharest Old Town should be the first part of your Bucharest trip. It's advised to have a walk around during the afternoon until night. It's both amazing during daylight and nighttime. The capital preserves some of the oldest monuments whilst the lively streets are packed with many restaurants and bar. Some of the major attractions include the 19th-century Manuc Inn, the oldest church in the city and the oldest residence of medieval princes, the 18th-century Stavropoleos Monastery and old merchant streets. Visit the City’s Historic Churches Romania is Eastern Orthodox, but the real beauty of Bucharest's architecture is not found in the big [...]

Seville, the capital of Andalusia in Spain

Seville is the capital city of Andalusia which is located in the southern part of Spain. You may also hear people calling it Sevilla and it's one of the largest cities in Spain. If you have heard of Flamenco then you should know that Seville is the birthplace. I visited the city in mid-September which is a great time to visit a Mediterranean country since it's not very hot during the day. I got a direct flight from London with Ryanair which costs around 70 EUROS. From the airport, you can get the bus (which is the cheapest option) or the taxi which costs 25 EUROS to the city center. So here I was, in a new destination, once again for work, with the chance to see a new place and walk around the city. Things to do Seville is a beautiful town to see on foot. Walking around in Santa Cruz and its narrow streets you’ll get lost amongst the [...]

Few Hours in Ghent, Belgium

Ghent is a beautiful canal town with a lot of history. The city is part of Flanders and it used to be on the most powerful and rich cities in Europe during the Middle Ages. Its characterized as one of Europe's amazing discoveries and you surely shouldn't miss visiting if you are in Belgium. GETTING TO GHENT Since I was in Brussels, which I have visited a lot of times, I had some free time to take the train to a nearby city. I visited Bruges before, so Ghent was my first option. I got a return train ticket for 10 Euros from Brussels to Ghent. After 40 minutes I was in Ghent. I got off at Gent-Sint-Pieters train station, which is the main station. Once you get out of the station you’ll see a lot of bicycles everywhere, parked! It reminded me of Amsterdam. I started walking, thinking that I was going to walk to the city centre but then I noticed that there’s nothing special [...]

Aveiro the Portuguese Venice

Aveiro is a city on the west coast of Portugal set along a lagoon called Ria de Aveiro. The coastal lagoon is rich in bird life and that's where Aveiro got its name from, the Latin aviarium (place of birds). It's distinguished by its canals navigated by colorful boats (barcos moliceiros), reminding Venice. The boats were traditionally used to harvest seaweed. I've been to Portugal a few years ago (in Lisbon) and was considering at some point in the future to visit Porto but then a good chance comes up to travel to Aveiro for a business meeting.  I’ve heard of Aveiro before but never thought of going there. Travelling to Aveiro from Cyprus was quite exhausting since we had to take 3 flights (Larnaca - Athens, Athens - Barcelona, Barcelona - Porto) and then a train from Porto to Aveiro. The city Part of the city is bathed through canals, bridges and painted boats called moliceiros which are very similar to the gondolas of Venice. They also say that Aveiro has some fantastic sandy beaches which I didn’t have [...]
