Showing emotion or hugging are not Japanese culture. When I started travelling I did not know how Japanese culture is good. I didn’t like having to guess what the others think; in Japan, even if a person says ‘yes’, sometimes the person means ‘NO’! It made me confused most of the time. I thought showing emotion makes it easier to understand a person.
The latest weekly takeover was a true discovery! Although being a small city, Bratislava holds wonderful secrets and a thriving multicultural community. Maria was a truly amazing host, and she took us to her favourite international spots around the city. Scroll down to travel faraway in Bratislava with us!

Amsterdam offers amazing opportunities to #TravelFarawayAthome. A total of 180 nationalities live in Amsterdam alone and there are stories, food, art, music, nightlife, culture, and religious experiences from all the corners of the world. I have barely started to explore this inredibly diverse city, but here is a teaser of what you can experience:
Russians are cold. Here’s a stereotype we are all familiar with. Russians are not just physically cold (ah, the weather!), they are also fierce, ruthless, and always frowning. Have you ever heard about it? Well, I have. Thousands of times. Especially with regard to Moscow and its inhabitants, long considered as some of the coldest, most unwelcoming people in Europe. Does it ring a bell?
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
My first epiphany as an immigrant came harder than a rock on a rainy day. I stood in South Africa, as a student, and a passing comment shattered my inner pride: someone spoke badly of my country, Mozambique.
The first weekly takeover of Travelgram Faraway at Home has just come to the end, and I would like to thank personally (really, guys! You are awesome!) all the people who have followed us through our exciting international journey in Bologna, Italy. For those of you who don’t have Instagram or hadn’t got the time to catch up with last week’s takeover, here’s a recap of all photos and descriptions!
The world today is becoming more and more diverse, bound by unique cultures and languages. We see people from different countries interact with one another and gather in cities all around the world, creating vibrant places to spark the curiosity of any culture lover. Thanks to immigration, cities are transforming into baskets of culture, where people are constantly exposed to delicious cuisine from various nations, foreign languages, and international cultural exhibitions.
