Best Winter Travel Destinations

You might see winter travel destinations and what will come to you mind is snow right?  But this post its not only about cold freezing places. This is a collaboration post with other travel bloggers who are recommending a city for winter either because crowds are smaller compared to other seasons and this is the best way to explore the city. Off season also means that its cheaper because the city is not that popular compared to higher seasons. Some others cities in this post have been recommended just because they are very popular for Christmas time and some other places are just great to travel too just because its summer! Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm for winter? Yeh, its pretty cold but why not? A recommendation from me after visiting this city in winter. The city is covered with snow and looks beautiful. There are less tourists which makes it easier to see the famous attractions without having to wait in long queues. I encourage you to take a look at my post: Stockholm Highlights & Facts and see how many things you can do in Stockholm during winter time. When I visited it was February and it was cold however we enjoyed everything about it. Paris, France Katie from Creative Travel Guide is recommending us Paris the beautiful and romantic city of France as a winter destination. Paris is the perfect place to visit in the Winter. The crowds are a lot smaller than the Summer and the city is full of lights and Christmas decorations. The early evening sees the Eiffel Tower light up, illuminating the sky perfectly. This is my top city to travel to in Winter, it still holds all the beauty and romance you can expect from Paris but has that extra magic only colder weather can bring. You can find more about Paris at Katie's travel blog.  Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina Kristine from Pretty, Wild World is recommending us Sarajevo the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a winter destination. Sarajevo is the capital city of Bosnia [...]

One day Oslo self-guided tour

Oslo, the capital of Norway, sits on the country’s southern coast at the head of the Oslofjord. It’s known for its green spaces and museums. Many of these are on the Bygdøy Peninsula, including the waterside Norwegian Maritime Museum and the Viking Ship Museum, with Viking ships from the 9th century. The Holmenkollbakken is a ski-jumping hill with panoramic views of the fjord. Luckily enough, Ryanair was the reason to travel to Oslo due to its cheap flights from Paphos to Oslo (Rygge). I travelled there with 2 friends of mine in February 2014 in order to visit Oslo, then Bergen and finally visit Stockholm. We choose to visit Norway in winter in order to experience something very different from what we have up to now. The Hotel in Oslo We landed in Oslo and stayed there for 2 nights at the Anker Hotel, probably one of the best hotels I've been to. Clean and quite. We got a room on the 8th floor with an amazing view. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of things to choose from. The hotel is located almost in the city center and you just need to walk 10 mins to reach central station. The Wi-Fi is free and stable. A full day in Oslo We spent a full day at Oslo and visited most of the must see attractios while it was raining. Although it was rainy it didn’t stop us to tour around Oslo. We started from the National Opera & Ballet house and walked down to the Royal Palace and then the Akershus Castle and Fortress. We then passed by the National Theater and finally got the bus and visited the Bygdoy Peninsula, on the western side of Oslo. Here you'll find several museums such as the Norwegian Museum of cultural history and the Viking Ship Museum. We visited the Viking Ship Museum which is one of the main attractions. Here you will see displays on sledges and intact Viking ships.  After the Viking museum we got the bus and went to the National Theater were we walked down to [...]
