Red Rock Canyon, Nevada

I have visited Las Vegas several times, mostly for business and shopping. This time, during our last road trip in October, we had an extra day left before flying back home so we decided to spend the afternoon in Red Rock Canyon. After having seen some of the greatest wonders of nature on our trip, we were a bit skeptical about visiting “just a random canyon” but we really needed a break from the Strip. And we were more than pleasantly surprised. Red Rock Canyon is a part of USA National Parks System, which means you can use your America the Beautiful Annual Pass if you have one. Otherwise the entrance fee is only 7$ per vehicle which is a […]

Hollywood with Movie Star’s homes tour

When speaking of visiting Los Angeles, people (especially tourists) usually refer to Central Los Angeles region in Los Angeles County, California. It may come as a surprise to you that there is actually no Los Angeles city, there are only districts and neighborhoods, including the most popular Downtown L. A., Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westside… and of course the 75 miles coastal area with luxurious Santa Monica and Venice Beach, all the way down to Long Beach. So obviously if you want to visit and enjoy the most popular places in the City of Angels, you need at least one week to do it properly. But first, Hollywood Actually even Hollywood divides further into Hollywood Hills, Hollywood Hills West and East […]

A trip to Sistiana bay: Portopiccolo and Duino

If you ever visit north Adriatic coast and care to spare a day for a short road trip, or if you happen to be bored in Slovenia (which I am sure is pretty impossible if you are a tourist, but happens to locals all the time), this post just might come handy. A lot has been written about Portopiccolo, considering its very short history, however not many people know that there is a very nice castle just around the corner – making a trip to Sistiana bay even more interesting. Old castle with a tragic legend Duino is a municipality in the northern Adriatic coast, just about 1 hour’s drive from Slovenian capital Ljubljana (or Venice and Klagenfurt, if you […]

HIKING ABOVE TRŽIČ: BORNOVA POT (BORN TRAIL)

In Slovenia we have a saying “Kovačeva kobila je vedno bosa” which means “The shoemaker’s children always go barefoot” (thank you Barbara for your help with translation 😉 ) I am a bit embarrassed to say I fit perfectly into this category – a global traveler and restless wanderlust who can’t see what lies in front of her eyes. And I am not only referring to Slovenia, my home country, which is in my opinion one of the most beautiful places on Earth, but literally my doorstep – the town I have been living in the past couple of years. Bornova pot (Born trail) is definitely something I should have done a long time ago! I swear this Sunday trip […]

Romantically Chaotic Hanoi

Wow, Hanoi, where do I start? 🙂 First of all I’d like to say that if it weren’t for my job, I would have probably never visited it. I am not even sure why but I am not much of a fan of Asian destinations. I do know Thailand has awesome beaches. Been there done that. But that’s about it, right? Wrong, of course. I know Asia has a lot to offer, I just couldn’t seem to find the opportunity to go back. Until this April when I needed to visit Hanoi on business. It was a tough bargain but I managed to find a good distributor for our products in Vietnam. And after one year of “online relationship” it […]

5 things to see in Hanoi (Vietnam)

I visited Hanoi in April 2017 during my first business trip to Vietnam and Malaysia and I had just enough time to see & feel the city’s charm. Hanoi is very easy to explore, because most of the attractions are located around 2 lakes (both quite central), and the beauty of it is that you can rent a scooter and do it the way locals do – for tourists it might seem a bit chaotic, but it’s definitely exciting and memorable! Here are 5 things to see in Hanoi if you are visiting the city just for a day or two: 1. Old Quarter The easiest way to start exploring Hanoi is to book a hotel in the Old Quarter […]
