People I Met in Norway.

This is the third country that inspired me to continue collecting foreigner stories on their life journey in another country. First was the stories of people who live in my own country “People I Met In Latvia” and then it continued with “People I Met In Bulgaria”.

I had a couple of days to spend in Norway and that gave me a chance to collect the following two stories of two couples I met in Norway.

People I Met in Latvia.

We all have our own stories and reasons why we are exactly where we are. Everyone has their background and no matter what we all share the same sun.

In the time when people are moving all around the world, I decided to share the stories of those who have chosen to make their living here in Latvia.

This is the story of the “People I met in Latvia.”

Pros and Cons of Being a Tourist in the Netherlands.

amst-3

For starters I have to say that Netherlands is really amazing and beautiful country. It combines European charm with something so unique and different you can find only in Netherlands. I guess that every country has its’ own feeling. And the one that Netherlands has is the feeling of peace and artistic freedom. I must admit that it is pretty likeable.

Pros.

First thing I would like to emphasise would be the possibility to get to Amsterdam in a very cheap way, if you travel from Belgium. You can just simply take a bus from Brussels to Amsterdam for 11 euros one way. Imagine that you pay only 11 euros to get from one country to another for the same price you could buy a sandwich and coffee in, let’s say, Norway. By the way you can find the particular bus here.

A Bit of Iceland. [Video time.]

I am definitely not a video maker, but sometimes I just want to capture some videos along the way. It has a different feeling than pictures do, after all.

Therefor.

Low Pro Iceland Experience. This was my second try with video making. First try was a video from our Europe trip. This time it is Iceland I would like to show you.

Iceland was one of my all time favourite trips and I would definitely wanna go back there one day. If I am lucky enough to return there, I promise to actually learn how to film videos with straightened horizon and clean lens. Continue reading

Moroccan dream. Atlas mountains on low budget.

It was my first time outside of Eurasia. I had no extra money for traveling and no available vacation days. But what I did have, was a colleague planning a trip to Morocco. The goal was to go to Atlas Mountains and climb its’ highest peak – Toubkal (by the way, it is the highest peak of Northern Africa as well). I watched him planing the trip, buying the tickets and looking for someone who would like to accompany him. I told him that it looks awesome and I would really wanna come, but it probably is too expensive for me to join in. What happened next was a start for my love for warm countries.

The tickets were not expensive. Since it was December, it was not a tourist season, but who cares about winter if it means minimum +25 Celsius. I paid around 80 euros for a return ticket and voilà! Morocco, here I come!
