Exploring Oslo

Oslo is the capital of Norway, a very populated city, home to 40 islands, 343 lakes and a huge green forest: Oslomarka. Sitting on the country’s south coast at the top of the Oslofjord, it is known for its specific Scandinavian architecture, barbaric history of the Vikings, being chilly and pricey. If you are planning on spending a few days in the capital, here are some things you mustn’t miss.

Two Days in Riga

When I say two days in Riga it wasn’t actually a full two days. And of course, two days is never enough time to fully explore all that a city has to offer but if you only have a few days in one of the Baltic capitals this is how you should spend it. Don’t forget to bring a scarf, it’s a chilly place! And check out my Riga: Bucket List to see and do all that Riga has to offer. Can’t wait to head back to this chilly capital!

Luckily, my mother calls me the day after I post an article to let me know I need to work on my spelling. But, through all the hard work, endless hours, and making the thesaurus my new best friend; creating a blog has been a very rewarding challenge.

One Day in Tallinn

Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is straight out of the pages of a medieval fairytale story, filled with potions and castles and odd little dolls. But, Tallinn is tiny; so tiny that most travelers tend to be passerby or day trippers. The easiest and most common route of visitation is across the Gulf of Finland, hop aboard one of the ferries in Helsinki and in a few hours you’ll be transported through time to this medieval fairytale.

Berlin is a quirky and happening city, with literally so much to do. It is basically impossible to find the time to do everything, see everything, and eat everything that makes Berlin, Berlin! From wandering the colorful graffitied streets, to seeing your history textbooks come alive.
