Northern Lights Chasing in Norway

We left cold, windy London for even colder Tromso in Northern Norway (about 15 degrees colder: from 10 degrees in London down to negative 5). We wandered along dark and peacefully quiet, snow covered streets in search for our hotel. We landed in Tromso in the evening but decided the negative temps and darkness wasn’t… Continue reading Northern Lights Chasing in Norway

A Winter Wonderland in Salzburg

Finally getting posting again for my 2019 adventures in Europe.

Stress levels went up as I tried to figure out how to get back as the next stop was… Continue reading A Long Weekend in Prague

Part 5: Freiburg and The Black Forest

Day 1- 3 trains and a lot of anxiety (and running between platforms for connecting trains) later, I’ve made it to the south-west of Germany to Freiburg, southern most part of the Black Forest. The hostel is situated outside of town, with the Black Forest right behind it. Perfect location for me to go hiking… Continue reading Part 5: Freiburg and The Black Forest
