Traveling From London to Edinburgh? Take The Train. Seriously.

I like to believe that there is a time and place for everything. A time for being rushed, and a time for taking things at a leisurely pace. A time for a get-to-the-goddamned-point mood, and another for contemplation. And after years of traveling around Europe, I tend to prefer the epicurean journeys to the expeditive cheap [...]

The View From The Shard - in Photos

The Shard has been the subject of mixed opinions ever since its construction was approved: too high, too shiny, too much, too pointy. Others said it would revitalize the area, and bring in loads of visitors (and consequently muchos pesos). So when I was invited to visit The View from The Shard, needless I was [...]

The Sainte-Chapelle of Paris - in Photos

The Sainte-Chapelle had been a long standing item on my Paris to-do list, but for some reason, I’d never got around to it. I had deemed Notre-Dame and Sacré-Coeur more worthy of my attention - the former for its free entry, and the latter for the views. It wasn’t until my most recent trip to [...]

Scenes from an Amsterdam Canal Cruise

It hardly gets more touristy/iconic than this, right? While I usually prefer to tick off just a few landmarks and then discover the city’s cool neighborhoods, hopping on a canal cruise was of course never part of my master plan in Amsterdam. Not that there’s anything wrong with it - it’s just not something I [...]

One of the regions I was looking forward to the most during my trip with Eurail.com was Flanders - I won’t go about 18 ways to say why. CHOCOLATE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, PEOPLE. I’m actually surprised I resisted the temptation until then! But what I found was not only the best chocolate of my [...]

The Cologne Love Bridge - in Photos

Cheesy, or awfully romantic? I can’t seem to pick a side. These love tokens are spreading throughout Europe like padlocks are going out of style, from Paris to Florence and, halfway in between, in Cologne. Regardless of one’s opinion on the matter though, objectively, it’s a pretty freaking impressive sight. 40,000 padlocks in all their technicolor glory, [...]

An afternoon at the Canterbury Cathedral - In Photos

Canterbury is quite the evocative city in the Anglo-Saxon word. Not only is it one of the prettiest towns of southern England, it also happens to be the seat of the Church of England, and therefore the Anglican Communion around the world. It’s also one of the oldest Christian structures in all of England. Not [...]

Beautiful Berlin in Winter - In Photos

When one thinks of winter in Germany, one of the first things to come to mind is, naturally, the Christmas Markets. What’s not to like? Warm glühwein, delicious guilt-free treats, festive decor and music, and endless shopping possibilities. But coming from a Nordic country myself, I was glad I got to experience Berlin under (and, [...]

One of the stops I was most excited about during my grand Eurail.com tour across Northern Europe was Flanders - and of course, I wasn’t disappointed. Antwerp was the first stop on my itinerary through the region, and it set the bar really high for Bruges and Ghent. It’s a cosmopolitan, lively city - in [...]
