Exploring Vietnam. Part I – Chaotic Hanoi

It has been a month after the trip and I am still thinking how to put our experiences in lines. 16 days in Vietnam is just too much to put in one blog entry. I guess the most natural way of dividing our story is by places we’ve visited, so let me start with Hanoi. Hanoi wasn’t high on our “must see in Vietnam” list, by far. But it was the starting and the finishing point of our trip due to the flights we had. We only planned to spend there several hours in the beginning of the trip before we catch the first night train to Sapa and the final evening before flying back home. But the Gods of Travels (with the help of Aeroflot) prepared us a bit different plan…

Around Formentera in 49 hours – the desert island walk

I noticed that our trips have a tendency to be influenced a lot by external forces, like out of our choice dates or flight options. The same happened this time. Having 3 days without our girls and Ryanair announcing sales, we ended up getting flights to Ibiza for less than 25 euros (two people, both ways), and a crazy idea to make a round tour in Formentera island, without a tent or any booked sleeping place. It ended up being quite an adventurous and intense hike full of new experiences.

Biking Danube: Vienna to Budapest

Life is full of surprises. When we unexpectedly got a chance to get away for few days and do something, we very soon ended up with a fun plan: biking a part of EuroVelo route No 6 from Vienna to Budapest. We had 5 days which had to include travelling so the challenge seemed to be quite crazy. Not to mention that at that moment we didn’t have bikes, nor did we think that autumn in other countries is harsher than in Spain. But being crazy enough, we first bought the flight tickets and then started resolving everything else.

Lofoten Dream

It all started as a crazy dream, that didn’t seem to be real until I finally was packing my backpack. Looking back it again seems like a crazy dream than only happened in my sleep. If it wasn't for the photos in my computer I might not believe it...

Alternative Chamonix to Verbania Haute route: accept the changes (and drink beer)

Planning holidays for this year was not an easy task. Very limited time for planning, very fixed dates and never ending super important things on the way ended up in us being at Chamonix- Mont Blanc (France) with a bare book of the Chamonix to Zermatt route (that was supposed to be studied a to z before coming, but had only few glimpses instead), no proper map and a desire to finally go out into the wild...
