Hello dear travelers! I just came back from a wonderful trip around Alsace region in France. More exactly, we've visited Colmar and Strasbourg! Can't wait to tell you more... Culturally between France and Germany, Alsace has only been part of the French territory since World War II. It obviously retains a strong German heritage, from the local dialect to the traditional meals and iconic architecture. Colmar is the most charming little fairytale town I've ever seen. Why? Well, first of all, it looks like it’s taken straight out of “Beauty and the Beast”. For real!
Hello hello! I'm back! Today I want to tell you about Chalkida which is a beautiful city by the sea near Athens, Greece. It is also called the "city of mad waters" so tag along and I'll explain you why! After we visited Athens for 3 days back in September, we were heading to Chalkida to spend one more relaxing week at the beach. First of all, I am pretty sure you've never heard of this city until now because it really isn't such a touristic place. You won't even find a single magnet to buy as a souvenir, I can guarantee that :)) Also, the menus at the restaurants are mostly written in Greek. But that's ok, because this way you get to feel the true authenticity of Greece.
Hi guys! We just came back from a 10 days trip to Greece YAAAY. We've spent 3 days in Athens and 7 more days in Chalkida. However, this blog post is solely about Athens and I have to warn you... lots of pictures will be shown in here. Ok, so... what about Athens? Oh well, for me, Athens is just perfect. I really mean it. It's our 5th time visiting the city. A little bit awkward right? Why visiting this city so many times? Because we love everything about it! It’s a city we could visit again and again. In fact, we could even see ourselves living here. We like it that much!
This blog post is going to be a short one, but with so many beautiful photos presenting #myRomania! So stay tuned! Two weeks ago, we had a day off from work and my cousin asked me if we were willing to leave Bucharest that weekend. Well, of course! We are always ready to travel! So we immediately thought of going to the mountains. Asked another friend of ours to join us and the plan was already made. We were escaping Bucharest for 1 day. Yuhuu Ok, so we were all really enthusiastic about this trip and woke up pretty early in the morning. We've met our friends and off we went to our destination for the day, which in this case was Sinaia. From there we wanted to reach the height of 2000 m by climbing the mountain that rises above this small town.
One month ago, husband and I really needed a break-out from our daily routine and a one-day trip was just perfect at the moment. My father also joined us and off we went to one of my favorite cities in Romania - Sibiu, which is absolutely amazing. Romania is a wonderful country and I will always try to highlight this and share my pictures and stories to as many people as I can. Romania has great mountains - the Carpathians, the Black Sea and also the Danube Delta. So it's kind of unique, right? A lot of tourists hear about Transylvania and most of them believe it's a different country than Romania, but hell no... Transylvania is just a region in Romania. An awesome one if you ask me... and Sibiu is a medieval town part of this area!
Sicily! Ohhh Sicily! This was certainly one of our best trips. We stayed 6 days and we were a total of 6 friends looking forward to have lots of fun and explore as much as we could. Which we totally did! Just to have a first impression, our tour included the following locations: Castellammare del Golfo, Mondello, Palermo, Cefalù and San Vito lo Capo. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea located in Europe. It is an autonomous Region of Italy, along with surrounding minor islands, officially referred to as Regione Siciliana. The total area of the island is 25,711 km2 while the Autonomous Region of Sicily (which includes smaller surrounding islands) has an area of 27,708 km2.
Hello hello! Long time no see dear travelers! This time I would like to talk to you about one of the most beautiful cities in Romania in my opinion. And I’m guessing it’s not only my opinion… This amazing city is Timisoara! Timisoara is also known as the city of roses and parks, and has a very green face, especially in spring, when tulips abound. Some call it little Vienna, because of similar architecture and the number of museums. It’s the third most populous city in the country, with 319,279 inhabitants and also the informal capital city of the historical region of Banat. In September 2016, Timisoara was selected as the European Capital of Culture for 2021. Yaaay
Hello Budapest! I have to tell you this: with stunning architecture, refreshing thermal baths, and a culture that can be unique, Hungary's capital lives up to its reputation. Budapest is one of those cities that constantly ranks in various Top 10 lists, however it’s still hardly visited by many travelers. And that's a bummer... The Hungarian capital is really two cities – Buda and Pest – separated by the wide tract of the Danube, and only officially became one entity towards the end of the 19th century.
Dear London, you were almost perfect! Why "almost"? Because of your crappy weather, of course. However, we did have an amazing time and we are looking forward to see you again! So yeah, I have to admit that London wasn't on our bucket-list and that's only because we love the sun... more than... the rain :)) Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay in London, which is enormous by the way and our 3 days spent there weren't enough to see all the places that husband and I wanted to visit. I think you'll probably need at least 1 week or so to see this amazing city at its best.
Hey guys! Back as I promised! Our last trip was in Milan and on DAY 2 we wanted to see the beauty of Lake Como. There are so many wonderful small villages by the lake, but the most picturesque and most popular is by far Bellagio. This is also why George Clooney, Sting, Woody Allen, Donatella Versace, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone and Ronaldinho own their villas in this tranquil paradise. Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin located in the region of Lombardia. It's the third largest lake in Italy and also one of the deepest lakes in Europe at over 400 meters deep. It's shaped as an upside-down “Y” where the two arms are surrounded by the pre-Alps. Already a popular destination for aristocrats since Roman times, in the last twenty years it has become a very popular tourist destination.
