The mother of all categories is the ‘Destinations’ category. It holds all articles about a certain place we’ve been. From here on you can browse further to different continents, like: Asia and Europe. Please be aware that we have a long way to go in translating all the articles, so be sure to check back regularly! Hopefully you will come back one day to see seven continents listed here (Yes, Antarctica too).
Bilbao does probably not come to mind when asked to list five Spanish cities quickly. The city is the 10th largest city of Spain and it is becoming an increasingly popular place to visit. A visit to the Guggenheim Museum is one of the most well known things to do in Bilbao. The city has […]
San Sebastián surprised us with it’s beautiful location and laid back vibe. When you think of Spain, the first thing that probably comes to mind are Madrid, Barcelona and the Costa’s. Basque Country is not really regarded as a top tourist destination. Sure, it’s not as hot as the east coast and it’s turbulent past […]
Iran is a pretty big country, so you will have to make choices about where to go. We, like most people, chose to go from Tehran to Shiraz. This route takes you to a lot of well known sights and some lesser known places. I recommend to spend at least two weeks to do the […]
Dubai is known as a fairly expensive destination. Because of this we “only” stayed two full days in one of the newest metropoles in the world. In this article we answer the question “How expensive is Dubai?”. One thing I can already tell you; Dubai is cheaper than we thought it would be!
Looking for a nice holiday destination where you have one sun, sea and beach, but at the same time can also do cool things and make a nice road trip? The Yucatán peninsula in Mexico is the ideal destination. The Yucatán peninsula is located in the south of Mexico and is about 3.5 times the […]
For many, a stop at Las Colorades on the coast of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico is not on itinerary because it lies off route. You have to drive for a few hours, but I promise you it’s worth it. The few hours we spent in Las Coloradas is for me one of the highlights […]
In November 2017, we travelled sixteen days through magical Iran. And of course we kept the balance on how much we were spending. In this post we explain in detail how much we’ve spent on our two week road trip from north to south. Read on if you want to backpack in Iran. It might […]
Isla Holbox in southern Mexico – Quintana Roo – is a paradise like you find in the travel guides. White sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, the sea in 50 shades of blue and green, and pelicans that dive into the sea and chill on the fishing boats. With a little bit of luck, you even […]
Kuala Lumpur can be seen as the great hub for South East Asia. This is because of the cheap flights to almost everywhere in Asia. Not surprisingly we’ve spent more than a month in total in the metropolis on eight different visits. There are a lot of things to do in Kuala Lumpur, so we […]
Iran is becoming increasingly popular as a backpacker destination. Rightfully so if you ask us, because this beautiful country deserves more positive attention. Although public transport in Iran is well arranged, we chose to rent a car in Iran. The freedom that comes with a rental car ensures that you arrive at places where normally […]
Laws about clothing in Iran keeps a lot of people from visiting the country. Iranians are wonderful people and their country is beautiful. We want to shed some light on what to wear when visiting Iran. Iran is an Islamic republic and that means that there are a number of rules that you must adhere […]
Traveling to Iran -especially for first timers- might be a bit frightening at first. There are rules to oblige to and laws to follow that might as well come from the past. To us, ‘western people’, being told what to wear and what not to wear seems very oppressing. Although Iran is becoming more open […]
