Coastal village - Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

It was Friday, February 6. Our 3 hour flight from Barcelona to Fuerteventura was coming to an end, and plane started to land. Few minutes later the island appeared in our sight. Fuerteventura is one of the Canary Islands, located near to the western coast of Africa, politically part of Spain. Sky was cloudy. And all the island looked like one … Read More

Casa Batllo - Barcelona, Spain

We could live in Barcelona. Really! We could do so. That is what we said to each other already after some hours of walking around this city. After one day we felt sure about it. Barcelona is beautiful, it has pleasant year-round weather, it’s not expensive for Europe, it’s by the sea and people there are very nice. Awesome! But this time … Read More

Snow in Burgundy, France

It was summer of 2014, when we visited Burgundy (region in France) for the first time. And then we returned to the same place, the same Workaway in the castle, but now in winter.

Kapars and Una in Rome, Italy

Our voluntary job in rural Italy turned out to be unsuccessful. We were not happy with it. So after two weeks spent there we decided to move forward. We agreed to go to France, to volunteer in the place we were in summer. But before that, willing to see more from Italy, we went to celebrate Christmas in Rome. We … Read More

Una is hit by the waves in Goa, India

Even if it feels like we started to travel just recently, we are on the road  since October 2013. That’s 14 months, and counting. And now I’m writing these lines while sitting on the bed in our rented apartment in Turin, Italy. In the room with a balcony overlooking the majestic Alps. Year 2014 has been the best year of our … Read More

In Milan

One day in Bergamo, a city we have already been to a couple of years ago. Walking on familiar streets, going up to Citta Alta, enjoying peacefulness of this small and medieval city. Two days in busy and stylish Milan. Walking around, visiting famous and spectacular Duomo. Longing for Asian atmosphere and wandering around in China Town. And now for more … Read More

Our Next Stop: Italy!

Kaspars MisinsEurope, Italy, Travels and Adventures Comments

Bergamo - Italy

At that very moment, when we still were in Malaysia and when we were planning our trip back to Europe thinking also about going to Latvia later after. Even then we already knew, that it will be returning home only for some time. To meet family and friends, and take a rest for 2-3 months. Because we knew – we … Read More

Vilnius Marathon 2014

Kaspars MisinsEurope, Lithuania, Travels and Adventures Comments

Danske Bank Vilnius marathon start

Those who know me better, know that I do not like running races. Yes, I like to run. Over the last few years I have done it quite regularly, and occasionally I’m running for twenty or even more kilometers. But mostly I do it alone. When I want. Where I want. The way I want. And yet, last month, we both … Read More

We Are Living in the Castle

Una BaufalaEurope, France, Travels and Adventures Comments

Chateau de Burnand - France

After 9 months in Asia we are back to Europe. As Kaspars wrote, everything there seems so much like at home, but at the same time so unfamiliar and distant. Getting from Langkawi island in Malaysia to Paris took us about 30 hours, including time we spent waiting for connecting flights. We spent 3 days in Paris. And after that … Read More
