OK, I’ll admit. I may be using a little bit of artistic hyperbole in calling Vilnius –the capital of Lithuania – a secret. But compared to its fellow Baltic capitals, Riga and Tallinn, the city seems to be floating well under the radar.
Lisbon may be the Portuguese capital, but Porto is certainly giving the city a run for its money.
While in recent years, Kalamaja has become the preferred watering hole of locals and visitors alike, there’s still plenty of drinking opportunities to be found in Tallinn Old Town – if you know where to look for them.
City breaks are great and all that. But, sometimes, it’s nice to go beyond the capital and sample something a little more authentic. Thankfully, Porvoo provides the perfect romantic retreat for weary city-slickers and it’s just a stone’s throw from Helsinki.
So, we’ve been in Tallinn for almost one week now. The city is our first stop on our new adventure as so-called ‘digital nomads’. But, while we’re buzzing about our new lifestyle, lots of our loved ones have been asking, ‘Why Tallinn?’
Being the third biggest city in Spain, there’s plenty to see and do in Valencia. But, if 24 hours is all your schedule will allow, don’t despair! Here’s how we got to grips with the amazing city in just one day.
I really wasn’t planning to write a whole blog post about eating out in Kotor. But, when I started writing my main Montenegro story I realised we’d been treated to loads of great food. So much so, I decided to do this stand alone piece. So, without any further ado, let me introduce my recommended eats in Kotor.
I have a confession. I’d never really heard of Montenegro until a few years ago. The passing mention of the former Yugoslavian country on Eurovision each year was perhaps as far as my awareness stretched. But, my God! I had no idea what I’d been missing.
