Armenia, a legendary nation that predates most of the countries that exist anywhere on Earth. The very first Christian nation, a titan of the Southern Caucasus. That is what I had in mind before traveling to Armenia, nonetheless, I was met with a nation in decay, an identity in ruins and a blindfolded territory that has suffered the fall of the Nagorno Karabagh to the Azeris like a mother that has lost her children.

While the Russian invasion is still ongoing and the threat to millions of Ukrainians is still present with daily shellings that kill thousands of innocent civilians, some non-Ukrainian travelers dare to cross the border to discover how life is unfolding in Ukraine. Watch our story.
Georgian culture is one of the world’s richest. Its history, its food, its people, its traditions — it is hardly matchable. However, its heritage is not as strong as its political stability the ongoing Russian occupation and the protests of March 2023 are deeply changing the Caucasian country. I crossed the country to learn more about it and found multiple surprises. Don’t miss it.
As the war was raging in Ukraine, I decided to check on its neighboring country — Moldova. Putin has also threatened to reach this country and the airspace was closed for a long time.

An exhaustive search of cheap flights took me to the Arctic Circle for just 30€. I wasn’t ready at all for the stunning landscapes, nor the crazy frozen mountain where I almost get in serious trouble. North Norway is really an experience.
Perhaps the most intense region in Europe, for sure the most interesting one. We backpacked for one week around Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania.
Bosnia (Srpska Republic) and Zagreb
The alarm of a possible new war in Bosnia has been set off by the media. I traveled to Banja Luka, the capital of the separatist region, in order to see the escalation of nationalism by myself.
Finland and Estonia
Amid the raging tensions in Eastern Europe between Russia and its neighbors, we went on a trip to the freezing Gulf of Finland. First, Helsinki, then a ferry to Tallinn and finally a train to Narva, the Russian-Estonian border.
The largest city in Europe and probably the most diverse. I went from Europe to Asia by metro, cool huh?
I traveled to Napoli to try out the allegedly best pizza in the world. Also, I rediscovered the city in winter – castles, fancy streets and more!

July 2021, my friends and I were supposed to go to Morocco on a trip which got cancelled two weeks before due to COVID-19. We had to figure out a new trip and the idea came in. Milan, Verona and Venice, their names speak for themselves.
Also known as the “Green Emerald”. It had been in my checklist for a while. Definitely the most unique island in Greece. Birthplace of many members of royal families around the world. You won’t believe its beaches.
