  • Transportation | Turkey > Istanbul > Cağaloğlu Hamamı Sk
    Updated at May 22,2013

    Istanbul offers more than 20 different public transportation means, such as trams, buses and ferries. The light rail system connects the sites in the old city and continues through Galata bridge to the new city. Each section of the trip costs 3 TL (Turkish Lira), and you have to buy a token outside the station. If you change lines you have to buy another token. For example, a trip from the old city to Taxim square requires 2 lines.

    The ride on the tram is smooth and pleasant, and in the old city one passes every 5 minutes. When we wanted to visit the more distant sites, like the church of Chora, we also used the bus. Some local people were glad to help us in finding the right line and station to get off.

  • Transportation | Netherlands > Texel
    Updated at May 22,2013

    The next day we woke up early (again), and drove to Den Helder. From there we took the ferry (departure every hour) to the Island of Texel. It’s a 20 minute cruise, and you arrive at the harbor in Oudeschild.

  • Transportation | United States > Alaska > McCarthy, AK
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We ordered a one day package, including a round-trip flight from Chitina to McCarthy and a trek on Root glacier. It was a scenery flight with amazing views.

  • Transportation | United States > Alaska > Denali, AK
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We took the Valdez-Denali highway, planning to make the trip in 2 days. Eventually we got to Denali in one day. The weather was excellent and so was the view – clear and beautiful. Even though, it’s a long trip and you might like to divide it into 2 days after all… the drive is slow and tiring, especially in Denali highway.

  • Transportation | United States > Alaska
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We used a rented caravan for two weeks,  ferry, light planes for internal flights and rented car. 

  • Transportation | Germany > Hornberg, Germany
    Updated at May 22,2013

    We continued to drive up north on route 33, through the tunnels and by the Guatch River, in the direction of Hornberg.

  • Transportation | Morocco > Rabat
    Updated at Jun 9,2013

    From the airport, we took a train straight to Rabat. We left Casablanca for the end of the trip. I gave detailed tip on accommodation above. 

  • Transportation | Australia > Mission Beach

    Holden

    "When reminiscing about Australia, we have to pay our respects to the Holden, otherwise known as “The Monster”. It took us only seconds to fall in love with it – a bluish Holden HX, a bit old (1976) but well maintained (we were the third owners) and within our price range (3,000 A$). We bought it, and despite all the trouble it gave us along the way – forcing us to change part after part – we didn’t regret it, not for one second. Along the Australian part of our trip it was our home away from home. We drove thousands of kilometers together, slept inside it in places no one wants to hear about, had the nicest meals inside it, took cover from the rain, treated it like it was one of the family – and it gave us love in return, in its own way…"

  • Transportation | Montenegro > Kolašin
    Updated at Jun 11,2013

    We drove along the Tara Canyon and took some pictures with the big bridge behind us, but the river’s color changed to brown because of the sediment caused by the rain.

  • Transportation | Croatia > Rabac
    Updated at Jul 10,2013

    We arrived at Rijeka and circled around the old city, but couldn’t find a single free parking space. With great sorrow we moved on and stopped in a town called Rabac, which looked from above colorful and in the heart of the bay. It was less pretty up close. We continued to Opatija, planning to visit Vila Angelina, which I had seen in a picture in an article I read on a travel site before the trip. Since it was Sunday, we couldn’t find any parking here as well.
