Today’s post will be about Swords valley (Kiliclar Vadisi) in Göreme – Cappadocia, one of the must-see valleys of the area.
First, lets agree on one thing : How cool is this name “Swords valley”! Just for the name, you have to go there and see for yourself what’s up with the “swords”
On the first day of our week long trip in Cappadocia, we decided to head to Göreme Open Air Museum and let me tell you : this is much better than your usual indoor museum.
For those of you who have never been to Cappadocia, Göreme Open Air Museum could also be called “Cappadocia in a nutshell”. This is the place to visit if you want to get a good overview of the area and its history in a short amount of time. With its fairy chimneys, breathtaking landscapes and churches from the 10th-12th centuries, the museum became a member of the UNESCO heritage list and it is well deserved. Read more
Welcome to Cappadocia – Turkey. What better place to start this journey than Göreme and its famous Sunset Point. Beautiful place and stunning views!
Before going to Cappadocia, we only had seen few pictures of the area and didn’t really know what to expect and what we would be doing there. We only booked the plane tickets and an hotel, nothing more. The rest would be left to adventure spirit and spontaneous activities. Read more
We spent the afternoon visiting the cute little village of Baumes-Les-Messieurs (Jura – France) and apparently we were not the only ones thinking that as Baumes-Les-Messieurs has actually been elected as one of the “Most beautiful villages in France”. This very selective list only counts 156 villages in France and this make Baumes-Les-Messieurs a must-see when visiting Jura.
When I was little, my first and only travel dream was to go to Australia and meet kangaroos (I was a big fan of Skippy :)). Granted, I didn’t know much about the world but that’s probably when my travel itch started. I had to go to Australia!
Sadly I haven’t been to Australia yet (*still saving*) but one thing is sure : the more you travel, the more you want to keep traveling. You know, this syndrome : You barely finished your vacations that you start planning the next ones.
Since my first travel, my to-do list hasn’t stopped getting longer and longer. It is so long that I wonder if I haven’t forgotten my first “to-do’s” which is a shame because they probably were awesome!
It is always fun to see how your goals and aspirations evolve as you become a more experienced traveler. My first travel experiences were “beach resorts” vacations and so were my dream vacations at that point : “beach, pool, food”. Heaven!
I don’t mean that beach resorts are not good, in fact they are really relaxing but my interests have evolved. I discovered the outdoors and I discovered that I love hiking. And if you start thinking about all the amazing trails around the globe to explore.. well it’s about how long my dream bucket list is.
Luckily I am also (slightly) realistic and have shorten it to make it more do-able and readable.
Don’t worry, my childhood dream to go to Australia is still on it. I might keep it till the last moment for a “Grand Final”! An ultimate “Bucket List Done” celebration travel! Even though I am pretty sure, travel bucket lists can never be totally accomplished. It is dark magic at work which keep them getting longer. Read more
… or close to it
The Herisson Waterfalls (Les Cascades du Hérisson) are a must-see if not THE must-see when visited Jura.
We headed to the Herisson Waterfalls without really knowing what to expect. I had basically seen it on the map earlier that morning and have a “Let’s do it” moment. (I have a lot of those :)) Read more
After a long drive from Sweden to France (2 days), the last thing we wanted to do was to take the car and drive some more. We (dog included) just wanted to put on our hiking boots and hit the trails as soon as possible. But where should we go? Read more

Gothenburg first and only ecological raw food restaurant! I bet you have heard about the Raw Food diet. If you haven’t, this vegan diet consists in eating only raw products (yes you read it right!).

Ready? Hold your breath. Here we go… Read more
