If you ask me what city I would like to visit again in Europe? I will surely answer, in Tallinn. I find Estonia’s capital very interesting. I am just saddened because I only explored it for a day. To experience everything in this city, I believed staying for a week is quite enough.
I have to admit, I am missing St. Petersburg! I thought I can only see it on television, in the internet or in a travel book but I there. I was amazed by the beauty of this city. No wonder, I read from a famous traveler (I forgot his name) saying St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in this planet. I cannot disagree with him because it is indeed very true!
The map in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The picture you see above was taken during my visit in St. Petersburg last summer this year. This is for sure the map of the city but since it is written all in Russian, I don’t understand anything. The building on the left side is famous hotel in this city but I also forgot its name. I am trying to guess if this is the Kempinski hotel? Any idea out there? ==> READ MORE

Christmas season is almost here! I can slowly feel the spirit of Christmas. This is one of the best times of the year to visit Germany. Experiencing many of the Christmas markets in this country hosted by its little villages to its capital cities, is just worth visiting.
Sometimes it is simply difficult to decide which Christmas Fairs of Christmas Markets to visit but experiencing it in two or three places in Germany is already enough. Oh well, not really for me because I want to experience everything. I am thankful that I already visited some of the famous Christmas markets in this country.

One of the best Christmas markets I experienced in Germany is in Erfurt. This Thuringian capital city was founded in 742 by St. Boniface. It is a city in the green and cultural heart of Germany. ==> READ MORE

I am trying to reminisce past travels again. It always happen especially if I browse photo albums from those trips. Last night, I was browsing some snapshots I took from Ayvalik. As you can see in my snapshot here, it is a seaside town. It is located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Edremit, part of Aegean Sea, across from the eastern coast of Greek island of Lesvos. It is a district of the Balıkesir Province in Turkey.
The Seaside Town of Ayvalik, Turkey during our holiday last 2011. Ayvalik’s ancient name was Kydonia. Although both Kydonia and Ayvalik means ‘the place of quince’, the city is rather known for (and indeed surrounded by) a seemingly endless forest formed by olive trees. ==> READ MORE

Another wish came into reality! That dream of watching football live finally came true and it did happened in one of the famous football nations in the world, in Germany. It was truly awesome and so exciting! We watched that game in Frankenstadion, now known as the Grundig-Stadion in Bavaria, Germany.
I remember a good friend from Brussels, Belgium who told me that nothing can beat watching football live in stadium than on television. I agree with her and that is really true. The excitement you feel while inside is different than watching it on television. It cost a bit fortune but it was all worth it. ==> READ MORE
I guess this is not about travel stories but only some tips about shopping. How do you save money when shopping? Do you watch items you frequently buy especially when they are on sale? Do you used discounts codes or coupons to save some bucks especially if you buy something?
A sample of a flyer where you can have some discounts on some products thru their promotions. For example if you buy two of these toothpaste, you can get another brand of toothpaste for free. Not bad at all!

Winter is inevitable! It is coming soon! I have been to many travels anywhere in this planet especially in Europe but had never experience a ski holiday. I wish one day, I can take a vacation where skiing takes place. Perfect places might be in the Alpine countries where I can go up on the Alps like in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria or Slovenia.
Winter is the time of the year when winter sports take place like skiing, speed skating, figure skating, snowboarding, ski jumping, ice skating, sledding and more.
