Ireland is also called the Emerald Island due to its lush green countryside. And that is thanks to the frequent rains. But frequent rains mean something else, too: beautiful waterfalls! As we drove around the island, we found lots of pretty waterfalls in addition to the breathtaking coastal hikes, lakes and ancient ruins. So let us show you our favorite waterfalls in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Székely Land is a special part of Transylvania. Though it’s in the heart of Romania, it’s inhabited mainly by the Székelys, a Hungarian-speaking ethnic group. It has its own history, culture and traditions. And it also offers some unique natural beauties that we’d like to show you in this post.
Oh, those old Christmas Eves when I used to stand by the window, hoping to get a glance of the angels as they bring our Christmas tree. Those old, old times when I used to write letters to Christ Child with detailed descriptions and pictures of the toys I was dreaming about. Yes, it’s Christ Child and his angels who come to Hungarian kids on Christmas Eve. And this post is about how we celebrate Christmas – in Hungary and in our family.
One reason European cities are so popular among tourists is their old towns. The cobbled streets, pastel colored houses, giant cathedrals and magnificent palaces take you back centuries in time.

Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way stretches to 2500 kilometres. Impressive coastal cliffs, lush green landscapes, deep blue or turquoise bays. Pretty peninsulas to drive around. Like Dingle Peninsula that’s just north of the famous Ring of Kerry. Less famous, but just as beautiful.
When we think of Ireland, we don’t think of Guinness. Nor Irish pubs. Not even Dublin. We think of landscapes. We think of rain. Drizzle. Fog. Wind. Cloudburst. We think of green and blue. Sheep and razorbill. Ruins on the hilltop.
Iceland is one of those countries that can be best explored by car. Why? Partly because it has remote parts that can’t be accessed otherwise. Also, because you want to see its wonderful natural treasures at your own pace. Well, and we love road trips, anyway. After driving all around the island of fire and ice, we’d like to show you what we think the best scenic drives in Iceland are.
One of the most iconic sights in Iceland is baby blue Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon – and for a good reason. However, it has a lesser known brother that would deserve some fame, too: Fjallsárlón. We show you why they are so spectacular – in pictures.
