Venice: travel colourfully to Burano

Travelling to Venice is much more than just the main set of islands. What many people don’t know, is that there are a few other very interesting islands just a mere 7,5Euro away.

NYC: a spontaneous weekend on a tight budget

It’s friday morning, I’m at work bright and early. Dreaming of the weekend, when I can spend some time at home, relaxing. I am completely unaware of the idea burning up inside my significant other’s head, until lunchtime, when I glance at my phone, and the words “we are driving to New York tonight” pop up on my screen.
