Student Travel Guide: Antwerp, Belgium

For me, Antwerp is the mecca of Belgium. It is the city to be in, dine in and take in the beauties that Belgium has to offer. For whatever reason, Antwerp seems to always fall behind other Belgian cities such as Brussels, Bruges and Ghent as the best places to visit in the country. This has no reflection on Antwerp as a city at all, … Continue reading Student Travel Guide: Antwerp, Belgium

Student Travel Guide: San Sebastián, Spain

The Basque Country remains as one of the largest nations in the world without a state. You can feel it here. Look around the ancient streets in any of the cities, large of small, and you can see graffiti, signs and symbols referring to the Basque independence and the importance of the movement. The Basque people are proud of their heritage and would hate to … Continue reading Student Travel Guide: San Sebastián, Spain

At this point in my … Continue reading Traveling The World on a Tight Budget

Student Travel Guide: Berlin, Germany

Berlin. My favorite city in Europe. A unique blend of old and new, of communist and capitalist. The old German capital that has seen so much change over the last 100 years. The home to monarchs, democrats, fascists and socialists, the city has been shaped over time leaving a city like no other. A Stadt characterized by beauty and ugliness, by locals and foreigners, cold winters … Continue reading Student Travel Guide: Berlin, Germany

Student Travel Guide: Cinque de Terre, Italy

The Cinque de Terre. What more can I say about possibly the most beautiful and picturesque part of northern Italy. The Cinque de Terre is simply magnificent, understated but now a tourist hot spot, which makes its quaint decor and isolated location feel a bit like an Italian version of Disneyland. There are many ways you can do the Cinque de Terre but many of … Continue reading Student Travel Guide: Cinque de Terre, Italy

Student Travel Guide: Bratislava, Slovakia

Bratislava, the quaint capital of Slovakia is a small city only about an hour outside of Vienna. The inner city is dotted with medieval relics and ancient church’s, standing the test of time, older than some of the empires that ruled it over the years. Bratislava, itself has a very tumultuous past being being controlled by some the world greatest empires followed by years of … Continue reading Student Travel Guide: Bratislava, Slovakia
