 Travel and Live: Life’s too short to stay still! is a new, entertaining and at times refreshingly direct travel blog (“Krakow’s ‘Dragon’ is a feebly disappointing statue whose much publicised breathing of fire at fifteen minute intervals has about as much strength as matchstick being fumbled and dropped before being snuffed out”).

The site features plenty of unique takes on popular as well as less well-known destinations including a classical music guide to interrail, knowing where to go in Milan to avoid feeling underwhelmed by “The least Italian city in Italy” as many visitors do, hiking through the formidable Tatras in Slovakia and walking through history on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, to the best experiences in, around and underneath Krakow.
