Sunset on a desert have always been my dream. I remember watching ‘The Princess and the Cobbler’ and dreaming of seeing the endless horizon of the sands. It appeared exactly how I imagined it to be. We were invited to go on a 6-hour trip with one of the biggest Tour Agencies in Dubai, Happy Adventures. It takes around 1 hour from Dubai and…… you are there, on a desert, in a total ‘air bomb’.  Happy Adventures stuff are very professional – they care about their clients in a very high manner, letting them to decide what and for how…

Let’s be honest here – pink coffee shop is like a ‘ski-jump’ to a gastronomical business success. At least it has been for the last couple of years, since Instagram is around. The Insta-hunters (including, I have to admit, me) keep searching for those fetching places, as they remain the most photogenic ones. Let me say – I have always been a fan of those cute coffee shops, especially the small ones with a soul.

I am getting absolutely over the moon every time I hear ‘Christmas time in London’ – there’s nothing like the twinkle of London Christmas lights to give the city an instant festive makeover.

There is only one Polish Winter Wonderland at this time of the year ( at least in 2017), and it’s undoubtedly a small resort town in the extreme south of Poland, Zakopane. A well-known destination not only in Polska, but in the Eastern part of Europe. Its sights, cuisine and attractions engage tourists at every season of the year, but we decided to head there just before Christmas. To feel the vibe and to enjoy the snow, as it seems to become a rare atmospheric phenomenon at the beginning of December in Poland. Zakopane is a center of  ‘Góral’ culture…

Germany has the most incredible Christmas markets in the world, the way I see it. Weihnachtsmaerkte in Germany remain unique. If you’re tired of commercialism taking over festive season and would like to see a real traditional and romantic Christmas Market you might want to consider heading to Germany in December, where Christmas gifts are not mass-produced but craftwork of real quality (at least the majority of them). There are more than 2600 Christmas Markets opened across Germany, and each single one of them appear special among the others. Perhaps it is about the people and the festive atmosphere or maybe…
