This November marks my first anniversary living in Spain, or Spainiversary! There was one point I thought Spain would not happen because the visa complication was taking a toll on me, and then one year went by in the blink of an eye. One year is not a lot but enough to hold countless of

My 3 amazing days in Porto

Tuesday, 17 October 2017 by

Porto, Portugal has got to be one of my favorite destinations for a weekend trip: stunning architect, chill vibe, lots of characters, beautiful landscape, affordable delicious food and friendly people, I don’t know what more can you possibly ask for. In fact, I’ve been questioning myself why am I not living here already! Day 1:

Picos de Europa national park is one of Spain’s largest nature reserves situated in the north of the country. English Wikipedia would tell you that Picos de Europa is the literal translation of Peaks of Europe which is true, but a Spaniard would translate “picos” as pecks or little kisses. It’s one of those places that are picture-perfect everywhere you turn

[English – Tiếng Việt] You know the thrill, this charming southern beach city doesn’t lack sun, fun and chill vibes. However, there are more about Málaga that capture my heart. Here are my top picks for Málaga City that you’ll enjoy (if you’re guessing Pimpi bar or Picasso Museum make the list, keep on reading because they don’t). 

A Compact Tour of Malta

Monday, 17 April 2017 by
[English – Tiếng Việt] Three main reasons for me to visit Malta were: (i) I’ve always been intrigued to go to smaller countries (in case of Malta, 316ksq), (ii) air ticket was a steal flying from Madrid (roughly €50 round trip with Ryan Air) and (iii) the best of all was to visit the always fabulous Monica,

[English – Tiếng Việt]  Rejections are never easy whether from love, school, job applications, or entrance at border. This is the story about how  I got rejected by the Bulgarian customs at the airport.  Madrid airport:  7:30pm  While waiting in line at customs, I realized my Spanish foreigner’s ID card (tarjeta de identidad extranjera) was

[English – Tiếng Việt] Portugal is only a few hours bus ride away from Spain I’d be stupid for not taking advantage of it while still living in the area. So I went with my good friend / fellow backpacker Andrew whom I met in South America. Portugal is relatively cheap compared to the rest

Student House Hunting in Madrid

Sunday, 22 January 2017 by
[English – Tiếng Việt] So you’re moving to Madrid as a student and stressed looking for a room to rent. Don’t worry because you’re not alone. Compared to some big cities in the United States and other Western Europe countries, the rent here doesn’t brutally drain your wallet. And the contracting is rather lenient. What might

[English – Tiếng Việt] I visited Italy during the first week of December when people had warned me about the gloomy weather. I, however, found it extremely enjoyable to see the sparkling Christmas decoration and to feel the festive jubilance. Although the Italian I met were not the most friendly people, they are just too

Europe, or Western Europe to be specific, is not a cheap destination for backpackers. While your euros go a long way in many parts of Asia or South America, they don’t have the same value in this expensive continent with higher living standard. However, you can still enjoy roaming Europe without damaging your bank account.

A day has never flown by so fast spending with this cheeky Mexicana – Miss Lisa Marie, who traveled 12 hours out of her way to our epic reunion in Luxembourg!!! (I had just spent one week in Stuttgart on a business trip). We walked, ran, chased busses, climbed hills, attempted to take decent photos,
