#2360 – A Sunny Winter Weekend in Milan

ENGLISH Milan, Italy has kind of been an “anomaly” in my European traveling map. It is a big city not that far from the Netherlands with great access, yet in the nine plus years I have lived in Europe, I have only been there once, about nine years ago. It was perhaps because I did…

#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…

#2335 – A Short Weekend in Geneva

ENGLISH As my Instagram followers (@azilko) have known, this weekend I went to Geneva in Switzerland. It was a short getaway where I left Amsterdam on Saturday morning and stayed in Geneva until about noon time on Sunday; because I have been there twice: in 2016 and last year, haha. This trip was a manifestation…

#2330 – A Weekend in Gothenburg

ENGLISH Last weekend, as my Instagram followers (@azilko) have known, I went on a weekend trip. This time, I went to Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden! As usual, the planning of this trip dated back to a few months ago where I saw a quite heavily discounted return ticket by KLM to Gothenburg…

#2327 – A Warm Weekend in Wroclaw

ENGLISH To kick off September, I went on a weekend trip to Wroclaw, a city in the west-side of Poland. Earlier this year, I read the news that KLM was opening a new route there and I found a promo ticket, so I thought, “Why not?“, haha. This trip also made me realize that it…

#2318 – A Weekend in Vienna

ENGLISH So as my Instagram (@azilko) followers know, this past weekend I was … in Vienna for a weekend trip! Yep, in less than a week after the end of my short summer trip to Indonesia, I already hit the road (air?) again for another trip! Haha ๐Ÿ™ˆ. But to be fair, ideally I wouldn’t…
