After spending 3 years of my life living away from my home country, I feel like this topic (struggles of living abroad) is important and needs to be covered. In about a month from now I will celebrate 10 years since being back from my student life in Germany. Three months of that time I spent working in a hostel in Berlin. So how does it feel to leave everything behind and start a life at new place?

Staying in shape, working out while traveling and eating healthy is crucial. Considering all the tasty food we have to try, long hours on the trains and buses, sitting for hours in front of your PC, it’s sometimes difficult to keep track of all the calories and inevitably you start to gain in weight. Joining workout classes can be stressful, because if you are constantly on the go, you will have difficult time getting used to a routine.
Wow, it’s already Christmas time, soon the fantastic year of 2016 will be over. Time to look back, analyze what the year has brought and all the great things that happened to me. It was not an easy year in terms of work/travel balance. Nevertheless, I managed to travel quite a lot – more than I usually do. All those wonderful memories found their way to my wonderful new blog – Tigrest travel blog.
When you find yourself in between travels, it may get depressing at some point. That’s when good travel movies are very handy – a great way to escape the reality and forget yourself for an hour or two. I enjoy watching all kinds of movies – from TV series to documentaries. However, travel movies are my favorite. Some of them are simply entertaining, while others are true gems in terms of travel advice, ideas and new routes.
Traveling several times per year leaves you with a lot of emotions. But what happens, when the initial excitement fades and there are only good memories left (and cool photos). Perhaps it’s time to analyze what you have seen, and most importantly – learned – during your trip. Visiting new places leaves a trace in your life. You are not the same person. You should not be. Getting out of your everyday life transform you, gives you a new perspective of life, allows you to see how life is beyond your own horizons.
Starting a travel blog has never been easier. All you need is a little bit of initial investment, some amazing travel stories and couple of hours per week to manage the whole thing. Unlike before, when creating a website involved some degree of programming skills, blog platforms seem to be doing most work for you. All you really need to do is learn how to manage content, add pictures, respond to comments and share your writing. So let’s look at the process step by step and some travel blog tips to successfully market your content.
What makes largest cruise ships so special? Is it their size? Would traveling on the these ships be the ultimate, ideal holiday for anybody? Cruise ships are getting bigger and larger, accommodating more passengers, more crew and eventually more facilities. It’s not a boat anymore – it’s a floating city of it’s own. And as with any other type of holiday, cruises are gathering their own fans – people, who like this type of holiday and are willing to pack their bags and spend money on these huge floating machines.
For someone who has never seen a single line of code it may look like and alien language and to learn programming seems like impossible idea. For a travel writer like myself, to learn coding was essential, as it gave me a lot of freedom in terms of organizing and managing my blog. To be honest, it did scare me at first too. It is, however, an important skill and should be learned by many people. Ideally it should be included in school curriculum so that kids would get comfortable and learn coding from early age.
