The City of Gingerbread Houses: How to Get to Tallinn, What to See and How Much It Costs
Tallinn is worth a visit, even if its borders would end with the walls of the Old Town. Slowly strolling along the medieval streets from the Fat Margaret Tower - the city’s fortress tower - to the Town Hall Square, freezing with excitement with a map in your hands against the building facades, and peeking into the alleys filled with souvenir shops of local craftsmen.

Fairy Harbin: grand festival of ice sculptures
When we were kids, we used to build different figures of snow and ice, walking in the winter outside. The snow did not want to take shape, crumbled, and the ice stuck to the gloves. But those attempts had their romance. We grew up and forgot the childhood attempts to build the Snow Queen's residence. But there are still people who remember the snowy fun, and turn blocks of ice into sculptures and even entire cities. Wouldn't that be something really fantastic? Just believe it, live ice castles look amazing!

Rooji in Amsterdam
After my first night rest here in Amsterdam, I wanted to explore a big part of the city in one go. I arrived late last night at the Airport Schiphol, but when I arrived in the arrival halls I saw they had trains to Amsterdam. It only took 12 minutes to get from the Airport to Amsterdam Central Station and from there I was at the hotel in only 10 minutes. So thanks to the short trip to my hotel, I was well rested for today. They told me at the hotel it was going to be a typical Dutch day, meaning that, you don’t know what you will get and it’s going to be very random. One hour it can be sunny, one hour cloudy and the next you can be hiding for the rain, even though the weather forecast said it was going to be sunny. They also told at the hotel to start my day at the highest floor of the library, because it is one of the highest buildings in the Center of Amsterdam and I can get a good view of Amsterdam. It was very close to the station, so I went back there. Last night I didn’t notice how beautiful the building looked of the station, but it’s a very typical Dutch building that’s been there for some time now.

Raise your beers for Oktoberfest - in Munich or elsewhere
If you are heading to South of Germany, Munich is the best place to be, especially during the autumn. Especially if you travel there for business as many do, if there is some time left before the flight, you should consider that instead of sitting lazily in a fancy coffee checking your working e-mails you better head out to get the best of the city. Oktoberfest is the place to be in the city, if you are lucky enough to be there in the second half of September and beginning of October. Don’t have to think twice. Let’s go! Life is waiting for you somewhere else!

10 Destinations in Germany Off the Beaten Path
A huge country with a rich history and cultural heritage, and surreal natural landscapes, Germany has more to offer than the classical Berlin, Neuschwanstein, Black Forest or Munich, to quote only a few of the popular travel destinations. Given its regional local administration structure, with every ‘Land’ having its own governing bodies and capital cities, very often people living in a region prefer to spend most of their free time in their immediate vicinity where they are more familiar with the traditions, food habits and even dialect. And sometimes, they have lots of reasons to do so, as there is hardly any small village or town where it is not something interesting to do: from nature walking to cultural destinations or interesting architecture.

5 Terrific Reasons to Visit Tarifa
The fine sand sifts between my toes. Eyes closed this time as I summon up the memory of the last time I was here. The salt air breathes pulling deep in through the nose brings the heart home. The utter dryness of the air is remarkable, even though I’m mere metres away from an ocean. The draw of the heat tightens my sun-protected skin. The sheer brightness of the sun penetrates the eyelids which instantly reminds me of how thankful I am for a good choice of sunglasses. I’m back there now, in my mind!

Not a Town or a Village, Just Goodwood
Nestled in the South Downs of West Sussex is the magnificent Goodwood Estate. This place is not a town or a village itself, yet it brings together a multitude of events known worldwide. The Cathedral city of Chichester on the south coast of England is its nearest recognisable population of significance. If you have not heard of Glorious Goodwood or the Festival of Speed or the Vintage Car Revival 3-day event or the famous historical motor circuit, then you are truly in for a treat.
