Adriatic sea - sunset

Welcome to my travel library

Travel page

Watching different travel channels, I simply admire people whose living is based on travel whether for business or adventures. But is there ever an end that satisfies all travel needs? Traveling long enough helps us discover that there are a lot of boring and uninspiring cities around the world. The goal is to recognize ones making a memorable impression on us and keep calling to be revisited again and again. They have their own beauty and charms where we can feel cozy and safe. With that in mind here are just a few places that should be visited at least once in our lifetime.

Experience Croatian's best!

Picture of Dubrovnik from Ploce

Croatia is a small yet highly geographically diverse crescent-shaped country. The present republic is composed of the historically Croatian regions of Croatia-Slavonia (located in the upper arm of the country), Istria (centred on the northern Adriatic coast), and Dalmatia (corresponding to the coastal strip). If you dream about nice holiday, Croatia is a good choice - a land made for holidays!

The best of U.S.A

Every state is different and unique in its own way. Choose what you like, whether it's: culture, lifestyle, history, big cities, small typical cities, east or west, snow or beach etc...there are several places that cannot be pictured nor described.

New York, Time square Boston, historic district West Palm Beach, Florida

All you need is a few vacation weeks, a flexible job, a desire to travel to new places and a carry on bag...and hit the road!

Hot chocolate is the sacred drink of the Aztecs. Mexico is the largest salt producers in the world. Mexico is the most populated Spanish-speaking country in the world.

Mexico is the second-largest economy in Latin America with a growing middle class. Unfortunately, the drug war that has left a lot of people dead is no doubt a tragedy, but there is a lot of positive developments and historical context that often get left out of media coverage. To me, Mexican destinations are just some of the best places in the world as well as safe as any other of the world's most developed countries.

If you are looking for places rich with history, pride, culture, rare fauna, ecosystems, beaches, tourism, bull fighting, Christianity, weddings, retiring, mixture of a number of ancient civilizations and others, then Mexico is definitely the right place to go.

Europe at a glance!

Florence Italy

There are so many European destinations to be visited. Each of them is as unique as it can be, taking you to grand lands where history comes alive before your eyes: Paris, Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Venice, Florence, Rome, Vienna and many others.

Several Eastern European countries and cities are becoming a big attraction these days: Budapest, Prague, Moscow, Warsaw and the list goes on and on...

Not to mention Greece, Italy, Spain, France and all the other countries along the Mediterranean sea with famous touristic destinations.

I believe these days they are mostly divided by hill towns and coastal cities, but either way they all are just remarkable and well worth visiting.

Milan Cathedral Duomo

The wonders of South and Central America

Catedral de sal ColumbiaWaking up in the beautiful and vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro or enjoying panoramic views of Iguazu's 275 falls is everyone's dream.
In Buenos Aires we felt a "little Italy" everywhere around us - Italians speaking Spanish. The friendly Palermo is the most popular neighborhood and the Tango shows just take your breath away.
Chile is probably not as attractive as Argentina and Brazil, but it was a really nice experience to visit Valparaiso, Santiago and Vina del Mar.
A special attraction is the Catedral de sal near Bogota, Colombia.

picture of us in PanamaPanama City, the capital of Panama, is a modern city framed by the Pacific Ocean and man-made Panama Canal. Additionally, a special attraction is Casco Viejo, its historic center. Visiting the center is an amazing experience and a feeling of Central American life. There are several restaurants, cafes and bars...

The Houston Astros win the 2017 MLB World Series

The Houston Astros are an American professional baseball team based in Houston, Texas. The Astros compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division, having moved to the division in 2013 after spending their first 51 seasons in the National League (NL). The Astros have played their home games at Minute Maid Park since 2000.

The Astros were established as the Houston Colt .45s and entered the National League as an expansion team in 1962 along with the New York Mets. The current name reflecting Houston's role as the control center of the U.S. space program, was adopted three years later, when they moved into the Astrodome, the first domed sports stadium.
