Bilbao, Spain 🇪🇸
Bilbao is one of the most important cities in Spain. A lively city, with a great cultural and leisure offering and exquisite gastronomy. Nonetheless, it would have probably passed under your “must visit” radar without the Guggenheim Museum. That mistake has been there for decades even among Spaniards. Thirty years ago Bilbao was known to be industrial and ugly, quite far from being a tourist asset of Basque Country. However, recently, Bilbao has undergone a transformation that has led it to become a modern city, but without losing its unique essence. Keep reading and discovering Bilbao!

Chișinău – Moldova 🇲🇩
We celebrated Valentine’s day in Chișinău this February. Not an obvious choice, right?! Obviously we have tried to get ready for the trip in advance and kept browsing different reviews, and opinions about the capital of Moldova. If you look for reviews about Chișinău, the most common adjectives that you can find are: “boring”, “nothing-to-do”, or even “poor“. Let’s change this outdated perspective finally, please! The visit to the capital of Moldova was one of the most interesting city breaks we could have recently.
Tiraspol, Transnistria – Moldova 🇲🇩
We could discover Transnistria, on a visit to Tiraspol, just the week before the Russian troops broke into the Ukrainian borders. Transnistria is a country that doesn’t exist. Or better said, it is not recognized by almost no other country in the world, besides a few more in similar conditions.
Lisbon & Porto, Portugal 🇵🇹
Both Lisbon and Porto are super popular destinations among travelers to Portugal. Especially among the first visitors to the country. It’s indeed hard to choose between the two cities. The most obvious answer would be that you need to see both. But what if you need to choose? We are here to help! These two tourist magnet places are not so far from each other geographically & in terms of the quality of the services either. So let’s see, Lisbon or Porto? We list here some facts & places that you should review when you are about two choose between these two beautiful Portuguese cities.
Tokaj, Hungary 🇭🇺
Tokaj is a historical town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Northern Hungary. It is the centre of the Tokaj-Hegyalja wine district where Tokaji wine is produced. It is one of the seven larger wine regions of Hungary (Hungarian: Tokaji borrégió). Hegyalja means “foothills” in Hungarian, and this was the original name of the region.
The region consists of 28 named villages and 11,149 hectares of classified vineyards, of which an estimated 5,500 are currently planted. Tokaj has been declared a World Heritage Site in 2002 under the name Tokaj Wine Region Historic Cultural Landscape. However, its fame long predated this distinction because it is the origin of Tokaji aszú wine, the world’s oldest botrytized wine.
