Day 1 - The dream

In less than the 30 minutes I need to get to the airport, to drop off the luggage, go trough security and board. I take a taxi to hurry up. Everyone is already there and they are angry I'm late. They thought I would not show up. I get to the counter to drop off my luggage. There's a problem, I carry on more items than allowed on my ticket. I manage some how to put everything in one and I arrive to the gate. My friends are not speaking with me, I heard my name called for boarding. Haha.. One point checked from my bucket list. I go out through the gate doors and now which is my plane? I woke up, everything was just a bad dream.
I get up from bed and practice for 20 minutes some yoga to strengthen  my inner warrior. I'm packing my last items and going out for a coffee. I can't leave without drinking that magical liquor.
I took an uber, met with Victor and went together to the airport.
By far this is the longest flight I've had. During all this time I read and listened music.
Once arrived on Tenerife south airport we headed to the rental office to take a car and drove to the house we've rented for this week.
The house is very nice, very large but it's so close to the airport. The airplanes are flying very low and the noise is very loud.
Another thing a little bit annoying is the data connection, there are few wifi spots which are not working and I can't configure my data in roaming.
The day ended up with us in a Irish pub near the place we are staying. They started playing karaoke when we left.
A happy panda

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place

Croatia: Dreamy Northern Dalmatia

We spent the last days of our holiday exploring the classic Dalmatian cocktail of historic towns, jewel-like waters, rugged limestone mountains, gorgeous climate and Mediterranean cuisine of the Northern Dalmatia. Plitvice Lakes In order to have a full day to spend exploring Plitvice Lakes we stayed overnight in the area. It was so quiet and peaceful there! I wish we could have stayed more days to enjoy that serenity state of the place. Being in some way a remote place it wasn't easy to find a restaurant to have dinner, but when we did it was the best. Cevapi, traditional grilled minced meat with ajvar (roasted red peppers sauce) I don't have a sweet tooth but I enjoy trying local deserts. Traditional strudel with cherries - a touch of chocolate makes this simple desert in a delicacy  Morning coffee with a view Love is in the air! From the accommodation we had 15-20 minutes drive to the Entrance 1 of the park. We have researched which trails to take and the best views are start

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)
