Last minute deal: 7 days in Paradise. Las Americas and Los Cristianos

Las Americas, Tenerife, Spain

The only thing we wanted to do after a long and exhausting day we had yesterday was to take it easy and have as less driving as possible. And since we didn’t want to spend the whole day in the apartment or by the pool, we went to see one of the most famous beaches in Tenerife, Las Americas.

Last minute deal: 7 days in Paradise. Intro

Last minute deal: 7 days in Paradise, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

Should I spend my vacation at home? If so, what would I do? Eat potatoes and sign every time I look at the grey depressing landscape through the window? Day after day… Or should I waste all the money I have left on a trip? A little getaway that my soul, mind and body are desperately craving for? Although, I most likely will have to eat potatoes there as well. But it’s not a big deal. I think. In any case it’s better to eat potatoes with the ocean view than at home in front of the TV. Yes, as long as there are three holiday essentials – sun, palms and the sea – I don’t really care. I should definitely go. I must go. I need to go!

What to do in Belgrade in summer

Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade, Serbia

To be honest I didn’t know what to expect from Belgrade. I haven’t red much info about this city before going to Serbia because I didn’t want other people opinions to influence the first impression. Only things I knew about it:

  • Belgrade is not that popular tourist destination
  • It’s better to visit it in the spring and summer
  • There are couple sightseeings worth visiting

Holiday in Sri Lanka. Part ten. Accommodation

Mount Lavinia hotel, Colombo, Sri Lanka

I think I haven’t mentioned it before… but during our stay in Sri Lanka we managed to stay in four (!) different hotels, and one of those was paid for the entire holiday. Yes, I know, it sounds silly, weird and impractical. But as they say, wisdom comes with the experience. And next time we come to Sri Lanka, we are going to plan our vacation and accommodation differently. But for now, I can share the valuable information with you about the places we stayed in.

Holiday in Sri Lanka. Part six. Mini adventure

That same day we visited Oak Ray Handcrafted Wood Carvings. To be honest I was surprised to read so many negative reviews on TripAdvisor about this place. Some people even say something like: “don’t get out from the car if your driver takes you here!”.

Holiday in Sri Lanka. Part five. Mini adventure

Kandy lake, Kandy city, Sri Lanka

In the next couple blog posts I will tell you about our mini adventure. After checking the travel guide and map of Sri Lanka, we’ve made a list of places we wished to visit. And then we started planning our three-day trip with our driver.

Holiday in Sri Lanka. Part four. Colombo

Colombo has a great museum selection: Maritime museum, Dutch period museum, Colombo National museum, Natural history museum… and list just goes on and on. And usually (99,9% of the cases) I visit few museums during my travels. But not this time. And the reason for that is a couple of “disadvantages”. To be more specific: food poisoning (lucky me, I managed to get it twice) and terrible sun burn. So, as you can imagine I wasn’t really in the mood for museums; and instead of staying within four walls I preferred to be outside.
