Though I prefer trips to the silent and peaceful places like mountains, I also visited some larger cities which I really liked and enjoyed.
I visited San Diego three times (four if counting one night stay during my travel from Honolulu to Warsaw). I simply love this place, the city has everything I need. If I had to choice a place to live outside Poland, San Diego would be my first choice (if I could get a visa).
There are beautiful beaches with surfing opportunities like Pacific Beach and Mission Beach. There is a stunning Crystal Pier. On the north, there is a La Jolla, where you can watch sea lions. During a nearly month of stay in San Diego, I encountered a rain only once for a few minutes (beware of sun burns). There are also great pubs with awesome beer, there is tasty Mexican cuisine and much more. I will for sure dedicate a separate post to this place because for me it’s special due to many reasons.
One drawback? I’ve never expected to see so much homeless.
I visited Rome three times. For me, this city is more about a spiritual experience than a sightseeing, but if you are interested in history and architecture you for sure won’t be disappointed. Rome is regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful ancient cities and contains vast amounts of priceless works of art, palaces, museums, parks, churches, gardens, basilicas, temples, villas, piazzas, theaters, and other venues in general.
It In the city, you will see beautiful remainings of ancient architecture like Colosseum, Roman Forum of Pantheon and much more.
You will be able to feel the history of Christianity by seeing beautiful basilicas, churches, and Catacomb of Callixtus. From my catholic point of view, I can only say that the history is in the air in these places. To feel it even better I suggest reading the Quo Vadis, which was written by a polish Nobel Prize winning author – Henryk Sienkiewicz.
This were only a few suggestions, the city is full of other beautiful buildings and monuments. Additionally, there is also a great food, ice creams and usually a good weather.
This is another beautiful city. I spent three days in Budapest, as a stop on my third trip to Rome. Budapest is the capital and the most populous city in Hungary. First, it is not located on a flat terrain, hence you will be able to see awesome panoramas. The city has some examples of breathtaking architecture, i.e. the building of Hungarian Parliment. Best of all, Budapest is really affordable, a cost of my stay in a hostel was about 7$ per night.
I visited Athens in 2015. I traveled there by plane with one of my friends and business partners (Konrad). The city is the capital and the largest city of Greece. It’s on of the world’s oldest cities, with a history spanning over 3400 years. The city is referred as the birthplace of democracy, and it was a home for many famous classical philosophers.
Due to its long history, the city is filled with amazing cultural attractions. In Athens, you will see Acropolis, which is one of the world’s most breathtaking ancient ruins, the Agora, the Temple of Zeus and incredible National Archaeology Museum. And the best part, as a student from the European Union I was able to enter all these attractions for free!
Additionally, the prices in the city were pretty low. For an air-conditioned room in the hotel, which was located in the city center (five minutes walk from the subway station) we paid about 8$. The price included quality breakfast buffet.
