Taras Shevchenko Park

This article is about Taras Shevchenko Park. For a history of Taras Shevchenko the person, click here. If you are going to travel to Ukraine, chances are that you will go to Kyiv (Kiev) the capital of Ukraine. Kyiv is a big city and it has a lot to offer to tourists, although I personally would not stay there more than 4 – 5 days. It is a busy industrial city that needs so much work…

Kyiv Golden Gate

Kyiv starts from the Golden Gate. That is what my history teacher used to say. The Golden Gate is a symbol of Kyiv and although it may not be considered a fancy one or a big one, it is extremely important for Ukrainians. Usually, the city’s most important construction was the fortification wall and the gates. Unfortunately for Kyiv and Ukraine in general, the city’s walls and almost all the city was destroyed…

Shakshuka, The Best Breakfast In Israel

Whoever has been to Israel before will agree with me that it is a place with many different traditions and religions. It is a crossroad of cultures. During my visit to Jerusalem, I was so stunned by hearing so many languages, seeing so many different religious and cultural attributes, and how all of it coexists. Of course, a big plus of cultural mixing is that every part has something special to offer. You can notice…

What To Expect From Petra – The Lost City | All You Need To Know

Raqum, the Rose city, or the Lost city. All these names tell you about a unique place in the Jordanian desert – The Lost City of Petra. Why is it called a lost city if we know about it? Well, it is because from the 7th century until the 19th century (1812) the city was lost, and only traveling Bedouins knew about its existence. So, who built Petra and how did it become ‘lost’? In this…

Our Experience At Dolphin Reef In Eilat, Israel

Cody and I travelled Israel last February, exploring the old city of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other cities and sights. Along with exploring Israel we wanted to visit Petra, the lost city, in Jordan. It is not that difficult to get there from Eilat, the southernmost city in Israel which sits on the coast of the Red sea. We had only planned on staying here two days, but we ended up extending our time to…

Cool Things To Do In Paris

Everyone has heard a phrase “Paris is the most romantic city in the world”, but to me Paris is more like an open museum. Every street, every building, every park has its own unique long history and important meaning. If you point to any building and say this is something important, I am 99% sure that you will be correct. And although this makes Paris an incredible city, it also makes it a place that…

Have A Stroll Around The Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries)

The Tuileries Garden is a great public garden that is located between the Louvre museum and the Place de la Concorde. It is a favorite place for Parisians to relax, have a nice walk, or have a picnic. The park was created in 1564 by Catherine di Medici. If you have read my article “12 Dishes That Made Me Fall In Love With French Cuisine”, you know that she is the one who brought macarons…

All You Need To Know To Visit The Eiffel Tower

Back in summer 2018 Cody and I traveled around France for a month. We spent a week in the most romantic city in the world, (or that is what they say) Paris, and then went to Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, and Dijon. And of course, while we were staying in Paris, we visited all the most famous places like the palace of Versailles, Louvre, and Notre-Dame de Paris. And although I think…

Due to the recent Corona Virus (SARS-COV-2) almost the entire world has been on some sort of lockdown. From countries shutting their borders to stay at home quarantine orders, many people are stuck without anything to do. While I am fortunate enough to not need to work, my hobby as a travel blogger was all about me traveling the world, writing about my experience, and giving travel advice. If you’ve followed the…
