Italy, Rome – An Off-Season Trip I
Published: 9.3.2017
We were pondering if winter or early spring are suitable seasons for a stay in Rome. It turned out, it was a great choice. It is off main season, therefore accommodation, and flight tickets are notably cheaper. There are also lesser tourist crowds (yet in Vatican or at the main train station there are still many people there). Moreover, the weather is amazing. It was bit frosty in the morning but as the day goes on, the sun is more powerful. Temparatures then rise up to 18 °C so we wore just sweaters (some even wore T-shirts and shorts).

Laos, Phonsavan: Jars of Mysterious Fate
Published: 4.3.2017
I am watching green hills, cliffs, rice fields, and stone jars from the window on a minibus. The jars are large, small, oval, with and without a lid. Unlike the road, these are hard to not to see. There is no proper tourist trail but rather a road lined on both sides.

France, Departament Haute-Garonne – Toulouse II

We visit Toulouse one more time. This time we see Place du Capitole which is situated in the heart of the city. The square is vibrant and crowded.

Before we travel to Cambodia, we spend several days in Thailand. We travel in a bus to Koh Chang, the elephant island. It is supposed to take about 5 hours but we got lost.
