Istanbul is a city that has a little more than others, with its unique vibe, it attracts many visitors every year who spend just couple of days in the city or even take a longer vacation. Bargaining on stalls, strolling between more or less well-known landmarks and enjoying delicious and especially affordable food – these are just a few reasons why Istanbul is definitely worth a visit.
With 115 islands, the Seychelles are definitely a dream destination for those who want to lying under the palm trees on long sandy beaches, swimming and snorkelling in a turquoise blue sea, admiring nature and generally enjoying the tranquil atmosphere that reigns on virtually the entire archipelago.
We all know that the United Arab Emirates are known as one of the most modern and fast developing countries, but at least for the moment they have forgotten about one rather important thing in their development – good public transport. However, why bother with the establishment of regular bus and metro lines, when the price of gasoline is at least half the price compared to ones in Europe. This is perfect for locals who like to drive huge and especially greedy cars.
When we planning a trip we always take care of comfortable accommodation, do a research how we will get from point A to point B, sometimes we even select where we will eat… Everything with a reason that we will enjoy our vacations without any worries. However, we forget the most essential – our health and our finances, if something goes wrong. When we travel, we are usually braver, we do different and often more adrenaline stuff, eating food we would never have tasted back home, we walk through unknown paths and we mostly do not realize that there could be anything but a pleasant surprise right around the corner… and here travel insurance comes in.
We can choose among many providers, so it is always difficult to pick the right one. Maybe you can trust our judgment and choosing travel insurance with CORIS. Why? Because they are specialized for foreign countries, have range of all kinds of offers and an additional plus – they are available 24/7. Unfortunately, we all know this words – disaster never rests.
Before every trip, we write down a list of things that should be urgently needed on the road. There are of course clothes, all kind of technology, toiletries and other matters. In this part of planning a journey, most ladies faces with really serious difficulties. Anyway, which are those things you really need while traveling and you will regret, if you did not took them with you?
The United States are not just megalomaniac cities and concrete jungles, which we know from various films… There are also many beautiful national parks, deserts, small cozy villages and much more.
It may seem that America has become our place to be – in two years; we visited it for three times. However, this time was a bit different, we went on a 16-day American road trip: from San Francisco through Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Therefore, if you are one of those who enjoy being behind the wheel and drive on long, straight roads, then our itinerary through western part of North America will be perfect for you.
Lately we get many questions about how do we organize our trip, where we reserve airplane tickets, transportation, where do we find accommodations and so on. For many, these things seem to be very complicated and time consuming, but they are all aware that they can save a pretty bunch of money if they do this on their own and do not go to a travel agency. Well, that is exactly why we decided to trust you how our organization looks like, whether we are going to the other end of the world or just a few miles away from home.
Every kid who enjoys playing basketball, dreams of becoming one of the greatest players of all time. Everyone wants to be like Jordan, Bryant or LeBron, but only a handful succeeded in stepping on the court of the famous halls and playing in the elite NBA league with the greatest stars of the basketball world. Unfortunately, we did not have this chance and happiness, but we can relive our children’s dreams by watching live matches. Better that than nothing 😛
We watched our first NBA game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where home team Nets played with their neighbors from Boston, with legendary Celtics. A modern, only a few year-old arena, which can accommodate over 18.000 spectators, was filled to the last seat. One of the important information before watching the NBA spectacle is definitely that it is forbidden to bring any camera or DSLR to the arenas, but those rules won’t stop Saša, so she, with a great deal of ingenuity, despite the strict rules brought all of our photo equipment inside. Believe us, without all of these photos, this post would be very boring.
Although Cuba in not exactly the destination for gourmet enthusiasts, who are impressed by the exceptionally high class culinary and Michelin stars. However, chefs on Cuba, despite the country’s closure, provide the most interesting dishes from the accessible ingredients and with a touch of innovation. Combinations of foods may not really be what we are used to, but believe us; you will lick your fingers after each meal.
Well, if we exclude resorts in Varadero, then you can forget the dishes from other parts of the world while you traveling around the Cuba. So do not waste your precious time looking for Asian specialties, modern French cuisine or fine Italian pasta.

The offer is endless, so get out of your comfort zone and try all of those real traditional Cuban specialties. You will not be sorry!
