  • A WINTER DAY IN AMSTERDAM

    During our stay in the Netherlands this month, we got the opportunity to make a day trip to Amsterdam and visit the Amsterdam Light Festival. I had not been in Amsterdam for years: in summer I thought it would be too crowded and I could never guess that the city could also be attractive in […]

  • EATING BUGS IN CAMBODIA

    The last country I visited during my round trip through Indochina was Cambodia.

With a population of 132,000 and a surface of 810 square kilometers, it attracts around 1.5 million visitors annually. The barren beauty of Lanzarote is certainly unconventional: a series of volcanic eruptions rocked the island […]

  • DECEMBER IN MILANO

    Since some European low-cost carriers have introduced flights to Podgorica airport and several travel agencies organize city trips to different countries in Europe, it is much easier and cheaper to travel from Montenegro.

  • THE GOLDEN CITY OF PRAGUE

      I have visited many places in Europe, but Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is and will remain one of my favorites. In September, we spent two days in this “City of a Hundred Spires” and I enjoyed each hour of my stay, in spite of the fact that the historic centre was […]
