Shinto Wedding at Meiji Shrine

You should definitely visit Meiji Shrine when you go on a trip to Tokyo. It is one of the most beautiful and interesting places I have been to and I strongly recommend it to any passionate traveler like myself.

Meiji Shrine

The shrine is the resting place of the first emperor of modern Japan, Emperor Meiji, and his wife. It was built in 1920. In addition to the religious buildings, there is the Treasure House which has personal belongings of the emperor on display. The garden of the shrine is gorgeous especially in June when the irises bloom.

The Perfect Vacation with Momondo

Nacpan Beach and Calitang Beach

The summer is getting closer and we all need to think about our vacation! Going to the local travel agency is overrated today, since the internet became the main tool for searching hotels, plane tickets and touristic objectives. While new websites appear all the time, the established ones like Momondo are still the best.

Momondo is a comparison website for hotels, car rentals and flights everywhere in the world. Why it is better than other searching tools? First, it comes in more than 30 international languages, and you can even search prices in your local currency. This is really important, as you don’t need to calculate all the time. Looking for a vacation in Sweden from Romania? You will find all the prices in the Romanian RON, and you don’t need to transform those into Swedish Koronas.
