Counting the days till trip to Mauritius

Where?

Mauritius

WHEN?

From 27th April to 6th May 2018

WHY Mauritius?
  • Stunning beaches
  • Underwater world
  • Wild dolphins spotting
  • Beautiful unique nature

My dad is turning 50 this year. As this is kind of a big deal anniversary, my mum, husband and I are taking him to Mauritius, a tiny island in the Indian ocean, situated east of Madagascar. Once described by Mark Twain with those words: “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” seems like an ideal destination for dad’s 50th birthday celebrations.

In order to make my dad’s birthday trip even more memorable, I would like to ask YOU my dear readers for some assistance. If you have already visited Mauritius, what are your favourite places there? What attractions are must see? Which beaches did you like the best? Where is the best snorkelling? What activities would you recommend? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy must we try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!

Counting the days till South-East Asia trip

Where?

Singapore, Cambodia (Siem Reap) & Thailand (Chiang Mai, Krabi)

WHEN?

From 29th October to 11th November 2017

WHY SOUTH-EAST ASIA?

South-East Asia was on our radar for a while, but somehow it was never the right moment to travel there… Not until this year, when I found really good deal for the direct flights to Singapore. After a quick research on Singapore, we didn’t hesitate much before we’ve booked our flights there. Reasons?

  • Interesting architecture
  • Melting pot of cultures
  • Colonial history
  • Cleanliness

After our research, we knew two weeks in Singapore would be too much for our travel style, so we’ve started looking into other places in South-East Asia which we could also visit. Singapore is a travel hub with affordable connections to numerous destinations. It was hard decision, but after taking into consideration different factors, (like  weather conditions, transport connections, things to see, etc.), we’ve decided to travel to Siem Reap in Cambodia and Chiang Mai and Krabi in Thailand. Why?

Siem Reap, Cambodia:

  • Siem Reap temples
  • Cambodian history & culture
  • Affordability

Chiang Mai & Krabi, Thailand:

  • Elephants
  • Stunning beaches
  • Thai food
  • Temples
  • Thai history and culture
  • Limestone rocks formations
  • Adventurous activities
  • Affordability

As usual before departing to my trip, I would like to ask you my dear readers for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Singapore, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Krabi? What attractions are must see? Which market must we visit? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy we must try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!

Counting the Days till trip to Seychelles

WHEN?

From 27th November to 10th December 2016

WHY SEYCHELLES?
  • Stunning beaches
  • Underwater world
  • Unique nature

Main reason for our trip to Seychelles is fulfilment of my wish to celebrate my birthday a bit different than usual. I wished to step into new decade of my life while enjoying the warmth of the sun, relaxing at the beach, under the palm tree, dressed only in bikini. That kind of birthday celebration that is impossible in Europe in December, but is possible in the islands of the Indian Ocean. When my husband and I found affordable plane tickets to Seychelles, we didn’t hesitate much before we booked the flight and started to plan our trip.

In order to make my birthday trip even more memorable, I would like to ask YOU my dear readers for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Seychelles? What attractions are must see? What beaches are the best? What restaurants serve the best food?  Any tip would be highly appreciated!

Counting the days till trip to Iceland

 Iceland
WHEN?

From 3rd May to 7th May 2016

WHY ICELAND?

Iceland is a country I wished to visit for a long time. Reasons?

  • Stunning landscape
  • Geysirs
  • Aurora Borealis
  • Waterfalls
  • Icelandic Horses
  • Whales and dolphins
  • Blue Lagoon
  • Glaciers
  • Hallgrímskirkja church

Iceland seems to be amazing country. I would like to ask YOU my dear readers, who already visited Iceland, for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Iceland? What attractions are must see? What restaurants serve the best food? What accommodation would you recommend?

Any tip would be highly appreciated!

Counting the days till Japan trip

When?

From 23rd May to 6th June 2015

Why Japan?

This year my boyfriend and I decided to spend our holidays overseas. We were open for different destinations and have pretty flexible timeframe. We’ve browsed the offers from different airlines. When we found Turkish Airlines would take us to Tokyo for 462,9 CHF, we both agreed Japan could be our destination. After some research, we didn’t hesitate much before booking the trip. Reasons?

  • Unique Japanese culture
  • Interesting history
  • Castles
  • Temples, gardens & shrines
  • Dark heritage of WW2
  • Mt Fuji
  • Sumo
  • Cat cafes
  • Hachikō the dog
  • Snow monkeys
  • Festivals
  • 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites
  • Excellent public transport
  • Food
  • Okinawa beaches
  • Onsens
  • Safety
  • Cleanliness

Japan has a lot to offer. More we read about it, more difficult it is to decide on how to spend our 14 days there. At this point I would like to ask YOU my dear readers, who already visited Japan, for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Japan? What attractions are must see? What restaurants have the best food? What hotels/ryokans would you recommend?

Any tip would be highly appreciated!
