Travel, food and more

We are a family couple traveling around the Europe and other parts of the world since 1997. Although we live in Dorset, England now, we have lived in quite a few places before – Latvia, Scotland and a little bit in Morocco. Travel, food and more means it is not only about sightseeing, hiking or similar activities; it is also about culture of places you visit, their local habits and lifestyle.

There are so many beautiful places out there and, sometimes, only local people are able to tell you where to go and what to do. Those destinations often are away from usual tourist routes and cannot be found reading general travel guides. As it appears, even in such  places traveler may find exciting attractions, convenient hotels or guest houses and comfortable camping sites. What we got in return is relaxed way of living and real opportunity to feel free and enjoy the way you wish to live – no rush, no stress.

As much as possible, I am providing practical information and travel tips for particular areas. Initially, we started our journeys and driving all the way from our host country, Latvia at that time. However, later we started using airlines to get closer to our destination and continuing our trip using locally rented car or public transport. Many of our destinations are related to hiking and climbing in national parks and mountains, visiting nature preserves and exciting objects listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Often, we choose to book self catering apartments to be independent from scheduled catering and to be able to enjoy food you can get in local grocery shops or food markets.


Individually planned trip around the Europe or anywhere else is an amazing opportunity to choose your own destination, places to visit and time to spend for every place you choose. This travel blog offers short guides related to European and other destinations. I hope, it will help to plan your own holiday or weekend trips to enjoy exciting places wherever you choose to go.

Enjoy simple pleasures of life!
