IMG_9325_FotorHi everyone!
My name is Yannis!

I intend to give you practical information for when you have limited time when visiting one place and would like to incorporate doing something a bit unusual, interesting and with a meaning. Or when you simply don't wanna end up wandering around aimlessly.

I'm also here to share some of my stories, incidents, memorable moments from travelling the world, knowing that you'll find some of them interesting, too!

Hide In My Suitcase while I travel and let's see the world together!

Wotrubakirche: An unexpected brutalist church in beautiful Vienna

Even in the least attractive of places with no sightseeing interest whatsoever, you can rely on places of worship for an imposing structure, beautiful architecture and classic beauty. Think of churches, mosques and all sorts of temples around the world. Endless selection of buildings, appealing to various tastes. In a place of an immense architectural elegance like Vienna, you can be prepared for pleasant surprises! But I’m not sure how much you can be prepared for such a contrast like…

How to explore the best of Rotterdam in 2 days

“If I had to live anywhere in Holland, Rotterdam would be the place” , “Can’t wait to visit Markthal! It looks very impressive!” Iason, whom I generally trust, revealed to me while I was trying to figure out an itinerary around the city the night before my visit. “What are you gonna do there?”, “It’s only good for shopping!” were some of the reactions of my Dutch colleagues when I told them I’m planning to visit Rotterdam, accompanied by a look…

3 impressive abandoned places to discover in the UAE

Dubai and the United Arab Emirates are not popular with urban explorers. They’re considered to be too modern and very recently built for some of their sites to be abandoned already. However this is far from true. Some of its construction sites were abandoned even before the projects were completed, especially at times where their financing couldn’t be guaranteed. And others because of ghosts and supernatural activities!  Here are some great abandoned places to discover in the UAE, regardless if you’re an…

What do the Cube Houses of Rotterdam look like from the inside?

It’s true that Rotterdam didn’t do much to impress me! It was more than I expected it to be and definitely more than some locals had warned me: It was modern and edgy and still maintained some traditional dutch elements and had a lot of character. I liked it so much that I visited it 3 times in one week! The reason I went back for the 3rd time though was one of its landmarks: the Cube Houses in the city’s…

Brussels is the city that glorifies peeing like no other!

What is Brussels best known for? The belgian capital is very famous for being home to the iconic Atomium, many European Union institutions and, of course, the Manneken Pis, the legendary fountain of a boy peeing!

Manneken Pis First things first: Not only is it tiny, but it’s behind a tall fence, in the corner of 2 streets. There’s little chance you would…
