How to survive winter travel in Europe

It’s halfway December and the winter season is nearing. The cold has arrived and so has the time for wearing gloves, scarves, and beanies. And let’s not forget all the hot drinks.

The beautiful buildings of Lisbon

Throwback: A day in Cologne

Looking back on the past 5 years that I spent in secondary school, one of the days that I will never forget is December 4th, 2015. I was in the 4th year at the time and all the German classes of the 4th year (which were actually only 2) would be going to Cologne, Germany that day. We were going to visit a museum, the big cathedral that you can see in…
