Poland in 5 days

Summer 2019 – We got the shortest Schengen visa we ever had (15 day-long, single entry), which was so disappointing for us; however, there was no other choice but go visit Poland. In the end, we were so happy that we could do that trip. We realized that Poland was quite underrated even though it…

South is calling! – Albania

Southern Albania has been calling us for the last couple of years and finally we made it! In the beginning of June 2019, we had a chance to see Dhermi, Saranda, Ksamil, Butrint, and Gjirokastra. Such amazing places! Places like Maldives but cheaper 🙂 They offer crystal clear water, lovely beaches, and greenery. Butrint takes…

Göcek Archipelago

Göcek is the heaven of yachts. Having been in Fethiye in Mugla Province many times, I hadn’t seen Göcek islands and coves until this summer since these places can be visited only by boats. As a group of friends, we had a chance to rent a yacht and explore those breathtaking spots and it’s turned…

Belgrade: Perfect union of Sava and Danube Rivers

I had the pleasure of visiting one of the most beautiful capitals of the Balkans in April 2019. Although the meaning of Belgrade (Beograd) is ‘white city’, I found the city quite colorful.

Sarajevo – Last stop of 2018

In mid-December of 2018, I visited Sarajevo, one of the underrated but well worth a visit cities of Balkans. 3 Ethnicities and 2 Presidents To me, the most shocking information about Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) was that they had a bicameral (with 2 separate assemblies) legislature and a three-member Presidency composed of a Bosnian, a Serbian…

Amsterdam

I visited the capital of the Netherlands in August 2018 with 10 teenage kids from Kosovo. It was a business trip for me as my duty was to take these students to a one-week summer school in the Science Park of  University of Amsterdam. Even this campus was startling for me. We stayed at a…

From Munich we drove to Prague in a super cool (rented)…

Selimiye, Marmaris

Turkey’s Aegean coast is magnificent and Selimiye is a great sample of it. It is untouched, calm, authentic and peaceful as it is not that easy to reach for many tourists. We followed the road from Marmaris to Bozburun and arrived there after 45 km. Selimiye is famous for its crystal clear water.  First we…
