    25 Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, and despite the fact that it’s not very big, it certainly offers an unlimited amount of things to explore. I’ve put together a list of 25 items, some of which are the well-known, touristy sights, others are a bit off the beaten path and you can easily miss them if you don’t pay attention, and finally a few which we haven’t had a chance to check out because of several different reasons. I’ve also included a place that I don’t actually recommend to people, even though it’s quite well-known. Let’s see what are these! Kuala Lumpur Malajzia fővárosa, és annak ellenére hogy nem túlságosan nagy,…

  • Saint Anne Lake

    Wayfaring in Transylvania: The Land of Volcanoes

    The last time my parents and I visited the Saint Anne Lake and the Mohos bog was when I was a teenager. It was such an unforgettable experience, that I couldn’t wait to return to this magical Land of Volcanoes and show Will how does an almost perfectly round crater lake surrounded by a pine forest and often visited by bears look like. Actually, there are two lakes, but the second one is almost completely covered by peat. Azt hiszem talán iskolás lehettem még, mikor szüleimmel a Szent Anna tónál és a Mohos tőzeglápnál jártunk. Hatalmas élmény volt az a kirándulás, így aztán nagyon lelkesen vártam, hogy újra visszatérjünk a Vulkánok…

    Wayfaring in Transylvania: Nyergestető Memorial Park

    On a foggy almost-summer morning of our Transylvanian road trip we decided to visit the Nyergestető Memorial Park. Our main destinations on that day were the Saint Anne Lake and the Mohos Bog, but popping by the memorial park didn’t seem to be big detour. Erdélyi kirándulásunk egy ködös, majdnem-nyári reggelén úgy döntöttünk, hogy ellátogatunk a Nyergestetőre. Aznapra egyébként a Szent Anna tó meg a Mohos tőzegláp volt betervezve, de nem jelentett túl nagy kitérőt ide is elugrani.

  • Korond Pottery

    Korond Pottery – The Workshop of Ilyés Vészti Mihály

    When I travelled home back in May, Will joined me. Usually, when the weather is good and it gets nice and warm, my parents and I don’t stay in Cluj, but we take the car and visit a chosen region of Transylvania instead. It wasn’t any different this time either, however the fact that Will had never been in Transylvania before and everything was new for him, made our trip a bit more interesting. Thanks to this, we looked at everything we consider ‘usual’ and ‘home’ from a slightly different perspective. Mikor idén májusban hazautaztam, Will is velem tartott. Általában ha jó az idő meg meleg van, szüleimmel nem szoktunk…

  • Nyhavn, Copenhagen

    Winter City Break in Copenhagen – Day 1

    Flying to Copenhagen for a long weekend was a very spontaneous idea. Will and I wanted to get away from the big city for a few days, so we asked Skyscanner for advice. We only had two criteria: cheap return flights, and a destination neither of us had visited before. That’s how we ended up picking Copenhagen (the truth is: I’ve been to Copenhagen for a half day visit when I was around 15, but a massive gay pride was taking place that day, so I don’t really remember anything else from the city). A koppenhágai hosszú hétvége meglehetősen spontán ötlet volt. Will és én szerettünk volna kicsit kiszabadulni a…

  • Colchester Castle

    Colchester or Coldchester?

    My friends and I chose a cold January Saturday as a milestone for leaving behind the big Christmas and New Year’s alcohol coma and continue our ‘exploring the British towns’ project. If I remember correctly, it was Caroline’s idea to go and check out Colchester, a place I’ve never heard of before and I had no idea if there is anything interesting to see. Now I can tell you: there is. Colchester is not just Britain’s oldest roman town, but theoretically it is considered to be Britain’s oldest town, period. This fact suggests that visitors will find lots of historical buildings, ruins and and other curiosities here. A nagy karácsonyi és újévi…

  • Ko Samui

    The Rainforests and Sandy Beaches of Ko Samui

    After exploring Bangkok and visiting the elephants there was one more thing left on our to do list: find an island, and relax for a few days. Thailand is an awesome place to visit from beach point of view as well. You can travel to this country whenever you want to, and you will always find a seaside or an island where the weather is ideal. In September for example, theoretically the east coast should be the one to choose, so based on this information we decided to discover Ko Samui and the surrounding islands. Miután bejártunk Bangkokot, és meglátogattuk az elefántokat, nem maradt más hátra mint eljutni valami szigetre lazulni…
