I am Arimo, a half-flightless backpacker from Finland. Arimo Travels began as a travel blog for my 2-year trip around the world. Now Arimo Travels focuses on flightless travel routes and sustainable travel guides.
Eastern Europe is becoming a more and more popular tourist destination every year. Former communist countries have opened up to visitors, showing their rich nature and cultural heritage to foreigners. But there’s still one country that goes almost unnoticed by the outside world: Moldova.
My trip around the world took a step to more adventurous ground last weekend. I got out of the bigger cities and came to live in a simple farm in the countryside of Slovakia for five nights. During my stay, I had plenty of time to trek around the beautiful national parks of Slovakia.
Last Wednesday was one of the best days of my trip so far. I hanged out with Slovakian traveler Milan, whom I had originally met in Šiauliai, Lithuania. Here are some pictures our trip around the outskirts of Bratislava.
I spent one week in Poland from May 28th to June 3rd. Listening to the locals gave me an interesting picture of a country that has suffered greatly in the past and is currently witnessing history in the making.
Unless you’re going to inherit a large sum of money or count on winning a lottery, your travel budget won’t appear at your bank account overnight. Instead, saving money for traveling depends on little decisions that will have a larger impact on the long run.
