Slow-travel Log: Vietnam, adventurous

We had no idea Vietnam was going to be this adventurous. Yesterday, while driving to the beach, we saw a guy in the middle of the road holding a huge brick in his hand. He was about to throw it at a car passing by. However, spotting us changed his mind and suddenly he was […]

Slow-travel Log: Vieuphoria

After a small delay, we’re back again, reporting from Ho Chi Minh City AKA Saigon. What we’re experiencing here three days in a row is pure euphoria – the food is awesome and omnipresent; the people are so nice and friendly; the city is relatively clean, even if you compare it to our home country; […]

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces


Rice terraces are, without any doubt, one of the most iconic sights of Bali that we just had to experience on our own. As we went to Ubud about a month ago, we decided to visit the famous Tegalalang Rice Terraces. Unfortunately for us, Google reviews did not paint the full picture and the place […]

Traveling Light

Not having to schlep heavy suitcases or overthink your daily outfits, and quicker packing/unpacking are all good reasons to downsize your stuff to a bare minimum. Once we […]

From Netherlands With Love

The prospect of slowing down again after zooming through Europe has never sounded more appealing. Even though we had to drive about a thousand kilometers from […]

Lefkada: The Other Half

Lefkada 2

Time flies when you’re having fun! That was the case with our remaining three weeks in Greece. As we’ve already mentioned in our previous post, we’ve met the Bolen family – Matěj, Madlen, Kryštof (8 years), Vojta (2,5 years), and their dog, Sněhura. They have been coming to Lefkada for the past seven summers so […]

Up the Acheron River

If you ever happen to be in this part of Greece, walking up the Acheron river is something you don’t want to miss. For us, it was possibly the best trip during our month in Lefkada (others like it, too). You start slow, just walking through icy-cold water which quickly turns nice and warm as soon as […]

Getting to know Lefkada

Time flies and we are wrapping up our second week in Lefkada. Here’s a short summary. Where we are staying The decision to go to Greece was made shortly after Christmas. Finding a suitable apartment for our family in Lefkada was quite a challenge (we might be relying on our beloved Airbnb too much) so we ended up in […]
