    Saint-Petersburg suburbs: Petergof

    by Kseniia

    If Petergof was a country, it would have been world’s fifth smallest country. It means, the territory of this ensemble is 24 times bigger than Monaco! And all these belonged to the single person. How crazy is that? Not surprisingly, Petergof is one of the most (if not – the most) popular destinations in Saint-Petersburg. Frankly, its popularity is the main reason why Petergof is the last in my personal list of Saint-P. suburbs’ favorites. Just hate that crowd, spoiling all the impression of the Russian Versailles! What anyway didn’t stop me from visiting it three times. So why not to make yet another walk around, especially if it’s only virtual this time?

    Tauranga Historic village

    by Kseniia

    Tauranga is definitely not the place you visit to upgrade your historical education – it is called the most popular holiday destination for reason, don’t you think so? People come here to swim, to hike, to drink coffee outside. But if occasionally you find yourself too bored after several long days of sunbathing (like it’s even possible!), there is still something for a change. And that is the Historic Village on 17th street. Wanna have a virtual tour to begin with? You’re more than welcomed!

    Wellington for a weekend. Modern and wild. Part I

    by Kseniia

    New Zealand might look tiny on a map, but trust me, you never have enough time to explore everything in here. Thanks to Booking.com we got a chance to have a look at yet another corner of this spectacular country – a couple of weeks ago we visited Wellington, world’s most Southern capital. Despite the shortness of the journey, it turned to be so inspiring and filled with emotions and impressions, that I even decided to divide our guide in two parts: about the city and about the nature. That is by the way exactly how Wellington looks like – wild and modern at the same time. How about starting with the wild part? Oh yeah, you know we have this thing with the nature:)
