For our second day in the City of Lights, we decided to explore a neighborhood we heard a lot about: Montmartre. As a Moulin Rouge fan, I knew I couldn’t miss that part of Paris. Our day starting with a lot of stairs, something I wasn’t expecting but should have known! After all, Montmartre begins with “Mont”, the French word for hill… Our first stop once we got out the metro was the Sacré-Coeur basilica. Before going to Paris, I heard a lot of people saying it was absolutely worth it, so we walked into in, around it and up it! The …

The first time we landed in Paris, Chris and I knew that we’d be back. After all, who can land in Charles de Gaule without wanting to explore this gorgeous city? We were on our way to Croatia and didn’t have the time to head downtown, but we promised each other we’d come back. Then a few months later, I asked my sister if she wanted to visit us in Europe and told her she could either join us in Sofia for a week, or we could meet her in Paris and spend a week there. She had already made …

Of all the places we’ve been so far, there isn’t one that screams ‘Digital Nomad’ more than Sofia. If you want to work online and want to stay far from the beach and the humidity, Sofia is where you need to be. It’s Affordable As a European city, Sofia is absolutely affordable. We were able to find a great apartment on Airbnb right in the center of the city for only 500 euros. Trust me, that’s not something you find very often in Europe. The food is also almost half of what we were paying in Greece, which is an amazing …

When we decided to go live in Greece for a while, we were expecting to pay less than average for an EU country. Well, when we started checking our bank account daily and seeing all our money disappear because of food, we had to adjust. No, we weren’t going to starve ourself, so we decided it was better for our budget to move. And our tourist visa was running to an end anyway, so we needed to get out of the Schengen Zone. When we chose to go to Sofia, we weren’t expecting much. For us, it was going to …
