Itinerary of the Best Christmas Markets Tour in Europe

Christmas markets are starting to become very popular in the world and especially in Europe in the past decades. Even though they have been around since the middle ages, their popularity has exploded in recent years, and nowadays most big cities around central Europe will take advantage of the November and December months to try and boost tourism with a Christmas market. Since they are kind of easy to set up, requiring only a few huts and serving a variety of 10 different foods, every city can easily set them up. However, they can get as complex as they want to push them, and some Christmas markets are absolutely phenomenal to visit.  In This Article…1 The Tour of central European Christmas markets2 The Hamburg Christmas Market3 The Berlin Christmas Market4 Dresden Christmas Markets5 The Prague Christmas Market6 The Cesky Krumlov Christmas Market7 The Pilsen Christmas […]

My DIY Vanlife Build: Giving Myself New Tools to Explore the World in a Different Way

Many people have asked me over the years, what I would do once I reach my final 195th country of the world and check off this incredible journey I spent the last 20 years to accomplish. “What’s next” have they asked me repeatedly. “Well, I will just do it again, just differently” would I simply reply. As you may have heard before, “traveling is all about the Journey, not about the destination”. And it was time to build a new style of travel to keep the journey as interesting as possible. Once I reached my final country visited in August 2021 and after the release of my memoir Globetrotter, I was ready to undertake my exploration of the world in a totally new way and in many different forms. One project that I had on my bucket list for years, was to explore the beauties […]

Cesky Krumlov: One of the prettiest cities I’ve seen in Europe in a while!

Always enjoyed Europe for the incredible number of tiny picturesque towns scattered all over the continent, from tiny villages hosting a few hundred people, to full-blown castle towns. Cesky Krumlov is basically both of them, having a very colorful central European town, with a Castle overlooking it! Walking around town is just amazing, especially when you are lucky enough to have a snowy day and its dozen viewpoints change completely! In This Article…1 A Beautiful Christmas Market2 Castle Gardens3 One of the prettiest cities in Western Europe4 Cesky Krumlov In Pictures A Beautiful Christmas Market The Christmas market was really cute, serving traditional Czech & Hungarian desserts, like the infamous Chimeny Cake (Locally called Trdelnik in Czech), and Sweet wine at a much cheaper price than in Germany.

Here it is! My second book! And it’s called The World’s Most Traveled Man’s Top 60 Travel Tips.
