#2405 – A Weekend Story

ENGLISH As my Instagram followers (@azilko) have known, this weekend I executed my “wish” for a short weekend trip in Europe, where I went to Switzerland! 😀 About a couple of weeks ago after learning about the Schengen internal borders relaxation, I started browsing for a return flight ticket somewhere in Europe. I did this…

#2376 – A Sunny Weekend in Madrid

ENGLISH I have mentioned it a little bit some time ago, I went to Madrid for a weekend trip in mid-February. And as I said back then, I was really glad I went on this trip because the weather in Madrid was perfect! Meanwhile in the Netherlands, it was storming that weekend, lol 😆 ….

#2370 – A Sunny Winter Weekend in Valencia

ENGLISH Once upon a time a few years ago, I stumbled accross some pictures of Valencia and, since then, I have wanted to go there! But somehow I have consistently found it challenging to get a great deal on the flights there (unless I would be okay with flying LCCs, which was quite a “stretch”…

#2367 – A Rainy Weekend in Venice

#2356 – A Christmas Market Weekend in Berlin

ENGLISH Germany’s Christmas Market is very well-known as an attraction to visit in the weeks prior to Christmas every year. Even so, in the nine plus years I have lived in Europe, I have only been to one, that was in Frankfurt three years ago, haha. So I told myself that I would like to…

#2351 – An Avgeek Weekend in Toulouse

ENGLISH So as I mentioned some time ago, I went on a weekend trip to Toulouse in mid-November. And here is the story of this trip. While technically I have “been” to Toulouse once, that was seven years ago. Back then my parents and I were on our way from Lourdes (about two hours away…

#2339 – A Solo Weekend Trip to Oslo, Part II

ENGLISH Between the three Scandinavian countries, for whatever reason Norway has been one I have visited the least; which to be honest is quite surprising because actually there are many destinations in Norway which I want to go to (and haven’t been too). But perhaps not really (surprising) given the relatively more expensive tickets to…
