    2 days in Venice (Italy): Must-see Visits

    We just spent 2 weeks in Venice. Of course, we are working at the same time, so in real life, we really only spent 5 days visiting a maximum of things in the city, including 2 full days for its must-sees. According to me, here are the musts of Venice to do in two days: Saint Mark’s Square: a huge tourist square saint Mark’s Basilica: golden mosaic everywhere the Doge’s Palace: sumptuous rooms, decorated from floor to ceiling Bridge of Sighs: connects the old prisons to the interrogation cells of the Doge’s Palace, you can walk on it while visiting the Doge’s Palace but otherwise you can see it from…

    Venice (Italy): 2 weeks as Digital Nomads

    After a month and a half in Rome, we decide to spend two weeks in Venice to enjoy the good weather before the arrival of winter. This is a first for us! We visited a lot of fake Venice, small Venice, green Venice…. but for the REAL Venice, we waited until 2020 to go there. We arrived in Venice by train. The train crosses a kind of narrow path, surrounded by water. It looks like we are going to the Keys. The water does not seem so deep because I saw people with their feet in the water and it only reaches their knees. We see a lot of fishermen…

    How to Receive Parcels in Italy? Relay, Lockers, Poste Restante, Fermopoint

    You have the standard solution: directly at home in Italy. I’ve seen a lot of delivery people, who make the effort to ring the bell at people’s homes. However, if you are away, as the Italian mailbox is often small, they won’t hesitate to leave the package in the hall (even if the front door is open). As an ex-parisian, it stresses me a lot lol. This option isn’t possible for me because the intercom at my home in Rome does not work :'( If you are traveling and staying on Airbnb, you must encounter the same problem. How can I receive my mail or parcels in Italy when I…

    3 weeks Road trip by Train in Germany: Itinerary & Budget

    Because of the coronavirus, it is possible that our only vacation destinations this summer will be in France (without the cat). But keeping our fingers crossed, we might be able to push to the neighboring countries. I was criss-crossing Germany when the coronavirus hit. I present below my 3 weeks itinerary planned for this wonderful country that I knew very little about. I was able to carry out the planned itinerary until the 8th day. From the 9th, well, you have the version “I planned but…”. I hope to be able to update the actual expenses very quickly from day 9, because Germany will be our 1st destination as soon…

    10 things to know before your visit to Machu Picchu [update 2020]

    Guide updated in May 2020 1. Mountain sickness I think that 100% of the visitors of Machu Picchu must pass first by Cusco before going to Machu Picchu. Cusco is at 3 400m of altitude, so if you come from Lima (or any place < 2500m of altitude), you risk to have the mountain sickness ( soroche). Allow 1-2 days of acclimatization in Cusco. Even if Machu Picchu is only at 2500m, the route Cusco – Machu Picchu will pass by places higher than 3800m, which is starting to do a lot 🙂 To remedy this, chew coca leaves (all hotels and hostals in Cusco will provide you with free…

    [Rates 2020] How to go to Machu Picchu without having to trek, walk, get tired

    Article & Rates updated in May 2020 To join Machu Picchu from Cusco is really the course of the fighter. There is no direct way where one can simply go up in a bus, make a small nap then to wake up just in front of the entrance of the ruins while saying “Oh! we already arrived!”. Moreover, many agencies, intermediaries, various options which are offered to us in Cusco do not arrange the things. Too much information kills information! Before coming here, I believed that only the Inca Trail of 4 days led to Machu Picchu. And then, I was told about a 2h walk along the rails then…

    Oaxaca (Mexico): What to do? What to visit in 4 or 6 days?

    After the Yucatan Peninsula, we wanted to rest for a while in the Oaxaca region, before continuing to CDMX (Mexico City). The colonial Oaxaca city of Juárez was chosen as a base because not only is it pretty, but also we will have a decent Internet connection. As we are digital nomads, we stayed there for 1 month, but the program below can be done in 7 days, taking plenty of your time. There isn’t much information about Oaxaca de Juárez, so this article will serve as both a travel journal and a practical guide, so that you can enjoy Oaxaca as much as we do: How to get to…

    A day in Hanoi (Vietnam) off the beaten track

    I was supposed to return to Ha Noi at the end of February and organize a day of accompanied visit for some digital nomads present at the same time in Ha Noi, but our flight was cancelled and we couldn’t find an economical alternative flight. So, here is the program that I was planning to organize in Ha Noi, off the beaten track:The idea is to discover the places frequented by the locals and not stay only around the 36 streets of the old neighborhood Morning Breakfast is very important for Vietnamese people. Instead of eating a Phở like all the other tourists, why not try other things. Vietnamese people…
