Travel Plans for 2016

And now let's talk about the exciting travel plans for 2016! We're happy to announce, that 2016 will be all about diverse landscapes, starting with a trip to the magnificent Philippines in January (had to change it - we will fly to Gran Canaria, Spain!), followed by Santorini, Greece (hopefully in April). In summer, we are heading to Iceland, the Faroe Islands aaaaaaaaand... maybe and hopefully Greenland! :) We can't really put in words how excited we already are. Apart from these destinations, we will definitely do some weekend trips in Europe too. For all Slovenia and Switzerland fans - don't worry, we will continue exploring these two incredibly beautiful mountainous countries and hopefully provide you with some amazing travel footage!


Apart from travelling, we hope to finally give you a glimpse of our new life in Switzerland! ;)

And don't forget: When in doubt, travel! ;)

    Dear Sonja, I can see that your traveling was quite intensive in 2015. Great experiences. Our travel plans for 2016 are more connected with discovering Slovenia. We will explore more of Soca valley, we want to do some hikes through the vineyards in Vipava valley as well. If you are in Slovenia, let us know. We can go together. On our bucket list are Georgia, Japan or Sri lanka ;) Keep on traveling, Vesna

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
