by office

Apart from high quality travelling rucksacks, luggage also comes in handy sometimes, especially for people like me who often come up with abrupt journeys.

Girl night outs are quite fun, but me and my gals took it on a different level. We recently had an outdoor trip at a nearby forestry area.

I started a new healthy hobby about 3 years ago – cycling. But after a couple of months of doing it alone (sometimes with some friends) around the neighborhood, I thought it would be a great idea to take my bike somewhere, where I really test my skills and my bike, of course. I had […]

You’ll never know what will happen as days go by. A lot of unexpected things can take place in which you’ll need tools and it is quite awkward and uncomfortable to carry several of it along when you want to prepare for any eventualities.  I seriously took the suggestion of a friend of mine to […]

Vacations will never be complete without travelling – that’s how we do it in our family. Growing up in such a way, I though I already know everything about it.
