My Latest Reviews

Destination Guides

To read my reviews on tours I’ve done, where I’ve rested my head, as well as city travel guides, handy travel hints and useful information:

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s ok. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on  your heart, and on your body.  You take something with you, Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
