Yesterday, Madrid Pride Parade 2016 – Madrid Orgullo Manifestacion happened – and it never failed to amaze me to the highest level. All the things my friends (who have been ...
OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
There’s only one place where you can see Madrid sunset while overlooking the city’s golden panorama – at Cirulo de Bellas Artes. From the top, you can almost touch the winged angel standing on top of a dome. There’s also a resto-bar on the rooftop, so it would be a perfect place to go on […]
I went to Salamanca last weekend – and it’s a charming little city full of legends and history. A short visit wasn’t really enough to explore the whole city but I managed to walk around its cobbled stones and quiet streets on my own while the rest of the tourists were huddled at Plaza Mayor and […]
There’s no doubt that Ait Benhaddou is Morocco’s most famous movie location. This is a kasbah – a dwelling characterized with high walls and are connected to one another.

You can spot the snake charmers of Marrakesh at Place de Jemaa El-Efna. There are many of them there, enchanting tourists to take a look at what their poisonous snakes can do. Be discreet in taking photos if you don’t want to give them a tip. Once they see your camera taking aim at them, […]
