Exploring the old and new Shanghai — from narrow alleways and historic bars to modern skyscrapers and the busiest shopping street in the world. My day out and about in Shanghai.

I have always been fascinated by the rustic beauty of Herzegovina — just imagine gorgeous landscapes of emerald rivers and rugged mountains dotted by centuries-old fortresses and ruins. Yes, that is Herzegovina.
I was in the city of Ballarat to experience two things — the remodeled gold mining town of Sovereign Hill, and to get up close and personal with the koala. It was a fun-filled day!
I only had a day to visit one of Australia’s most beautiful coastal routes — the Great Ocean Road. So I used it to visit seaside towns, admire the stunning coastline, and chill by the gorgeous beaches. I wish I had more time!
