Our short trip to Bologna was inspired by the desire to eat and learn a little more about the gastronomy of the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Even though Bologna is not in the same overly touristic route as other Italian cities such as Rome, Venice or Florence, it may … more »
Welcome to “the old continent”!
With its imposing buildings, cities full of history, traditions that infuse a little bit of all cultures that have come and gone… We want to find out the differences between countries that are similar on the surface but have a lot of personality in the little details.
Europe might not sound like the most affordable destination, but Portugal proves surprisingly affordable. Historically, travelers have overlooked Portugal. However, I am happy to notice that Portugal welcomes more and more visitors each year. You can easily get to Lisbon — Portugal’s capital — from anywhere else in Europe. There are plenty … more »
Two months living in a new city may not suffice to feel like a local. But it sure is enough time to start understanding what makes a place and its people unique. Spending several weeks in Stockholm, allowed me to realize that many of the stereotypes you hear about Swedes … more »
Finding free WIFI in Stockholm is certainly not a hard task. This is the Capital of Scandinavia, for Christ’s sake! So finding a good place to work from in Sweden’s main city is not about the connectivity. It’s more about sitting down in a pleasant and inspiring spot. Also, it’s … more »

That’s the reason why Ashray keeps on adding tips to his section about Visas for Indians. No matter what nationality or … more »
Traveling from Helsinki to Stockholm was way more tiring than expected. Even though flights between the capitals of Finland and Sweden take less than one hour, we arrived in Stockholm to (yet another) disaster Airbnb. We haven’t been very lucky with this platform lately, that is for sure. This time, … more »
Helsinki might not be an obvious destination for those who work online. It’s not as affordable as other digital nomad hot spots in Vietnam or Thailand. It doesn’t have the exotic appeal of Bali. Nor the all year round moderate weather that seduces remote workers to Lisbon. The city vibes … more »

Lisbon, like a good representation of Portugal as a whole, is a city known for its immense number of cafés and pastelarias (literally, pastry shops). Coffee breaks and sweet bites are a part … more »
