Travel Guides

On my travels I prefer experiencing a destination with tips I got from locals and fellow travelers I met. All free travel guides you can find here are different from the big guidebooks you know as they are full of personal and off-the-beaten-path recommendations from actual travelers like you.



All travel guides for the old continent – from Porto to Bratislava I feature popular metropoles as well as lesser known places that a worth a visit.
