    Peter Pan and Greyhound Review

    I went to New York for the weekend. Which meant spending a total of 9 hours on a bus, leaving from South Station in Boston, headed for Port Authority in New York. On the way there I went with a Peter Pan bus and on the way back I went with Greyhound. Peter Pan and Greyhound are interchangeable, because the same company owns them, so you never know which bus you will take. However, there are a couple of differences. I personally prefer the Greyhound buses and here’s why:   The Peter Pan bus was slightly older and grimier. It wasn’t too bad, but there did seem to be a…

    Emirates – worth the hype?

    For the past year or so, I’ve been hearing a lot of praise for Emirates. I’ve flown with quite a few airlines already, but I kept hearing how Emirates is off the charts wonderful. Finally last week, I got my chance to check it out and see how the airline compares to its competition. So what did I think? Pre-flight To be honest, I can’t judge their booking process, as I haven’t gone through it myself. But from the point of receiving my tickets onward, I was happy with the pre-flight process. A day before each departure (from Prague and then from Dubai on my way back), I received a…

    Three Days in Munich

    Last summer I went with my friend to Munich for the first time. Since I never traveled to Germany, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I was excited. It was a fun experience filled with beautiful, fairytale-like castles, walking tours and even naps 🙂   We only went for three days, so we decided to take a night bus from Prague. This meant that we got to Munich at 4:30am, which would not have been an issue, except for the fact that the metro doesn’t open until 5am. So we ended up waiting for thirty minutes on a bench, trying not to freeze. I wish I could say…

    How to plan your trip (without going crazy)

    Originally I was going to write this post while planning my three week trip to the US in September, but because, as usual, life happened and I had to cancel last minute. But even though I didn’t go, I went through the entire process of trip planning, so I decided I would share with you how I do it. Even though it depends on what sort of a trip you’re planning – weekend getaway, road trip across a foreign country or a beach getaway, you have things to learn and plan, so here are my tips Flight (alternatively bus or train tickets, or car route). Basically, how are you getting…

    Fall in Boston

    Boston is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the fall. If you time it right. It lasts only about a week there, other than that it is mostly rainy and cold. But that one week is worth a visit, because everything is colorful and magical. That one week is usually mid October. There is a ton to do around Boston in the fall too, since most universities are back in session, there are also a lot of great deals you should take advantage of.   The Boston Common and the Public gardens completely change in the fall. Everything changes from vibrant green to gold and red. Just…
