about me

I can say about me that I really love to travel and I love everything in the hospitality industry. I worked 15 years ago in a luxury hotel, an international famous chain hotel and there I learned that personalization in the travel industry is a key success for any hotel. Now I am working for the hotel industry in a software company, I travel a lot for my work and I meet a lot of hoteliers. In my free time, I love to travel, I love photography and I write on my blog. I am a mom and a wife.

Archeology, history, and legends

Walking in a city full of history gives you a great feeling and makes you go on a time trip.

A holiday on a sandy beach is not only about relaxation or sunbathes but also about the history of that land, villages around that beach, a beautiful landscape, making snorkeling to see the sea life, or meet wonderful people that can tell you about old legends.

Visiting a museum is about discovering the past of a civilization or a life of an artist, the joy of finding an object from ancient times, reading about lives that you will never live, without fire or without the comfort of modern technology, lives of simple people that actually build our world.

Perfect travel, perfect food, and traditional fairs

Looking for a good place to eat is about the desire to taste a traditional dish, to smell the local spices, to participate in family cooking, about a coffee enjoyed during sunrise or to participate in a traditional fair with local products.
