Travels – abroad and at home
We are no globetrotters who have explored Tierra del Fuego by bike, or Sumatra by horseback. We have never seen the nightlife in Bangkok or been surfing the waves of Polynesia. No, we prefer to learn a country by staying in quiet surroundings outside the towns and go sightseeing all by ourselves and visit interesting places. Culture, Nature, Food. Nice!
We have had no luck with any of the travels we booked at charter agencies, so at last we decided to be our own travel agents when we wanted to celebrate birthdays abroad and go on vacation. Herewith we give you the opportunity to travel with us and share links and experiences. We have added some from our wish list, too! Just in case!
For various reasons we haven’t travelled for a long time, so the material isn’t so new, but we hope it is nevertheless of some interest.
Below – explore the links to the countries we have visited. But if you like to go, travel first around at home virtually and you will find that you almost know the place, and the map, later.
It is also a good idea to print pages about interesting places and bring them with you, and perhaps show your findings from the web. You will make their day, we promise! Free coffee and cakes .
A little advice about comfort!
Check if there are any photos of the place you may want to rent. Are there only wooden chairs in the apartment or house? A sofa is nice! The furniture in the south of Europe can be a bit ascetic sometimes. Mostly the beds have no such things as a soft extra mattress, so … Not quite comfortable after some nights if you have a bad back. Your own plaid of fleece may be fine, the nights are chilly in houses of stone, also in April and November, even if it is +22C during the day.
