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!
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 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.
Hello travelers! Today I want to tell you about my very last trip that husband and I had in Milan, Italy's fashion capital. But please don't let its reputation for style distract you because underneath it all, Milan can be more than this! Although I have to be honest and tell you that we were quite reserved at the beginning and did not expect much when we decided to visit this city, but in the end, it really surprised us in a pleasant way! When we started traveling on our own, we also started chasing the best deals, meaning also the cheapest ones, of course. For this trip we booked our Ryanair flight, from Bucharest to Milan, with only 5 Euros. I am not kidding. Only 5 Euros, it's true. And for the return flight, we booked Wizzair with 10 Euros. So this means no more and no less than 15 Euros each. AWEEESOME!
Hello hello! I'm back to tell you about our DAY 3 which was a day-trip from Rome to this magical town named Sperlonga. This was by far the most relaxing day but we still had some little adventures on this day too, no worries^^ So, let's start properly. Why Sperlonga? I've heard about this little town from my good friend @ipiripinapa and fell in love with it immediately as her photos were absolutely gorgeous. I knew I had to see it for myself as soon as possible! So this was a perfect occasion to visit this amazing town. Sperlonga is pretty close to Rome, 2 hours by train + bus, from Termini Central Station.
Hello there! Today I want to share with you guys moments and photos from my latest trip. Husband and I visited Rome in November, 2016 and I knew we would love this city even before going there. I am really fascinated about the Roman Empire which was the most extensive political and social structure in western civilization. But why is Rome being called the ETERNAL CITY? Well, ancient Romans believed that no matter what happened to the world or how many empires came and collapsed, Rome would go on forever. And guess what? They were right! Oh and another thing... did you know the saying "all roads lead to Rome" is actually true? The Romans were extremely skilled road makers and the first to establish such a system of roads. They were also the first to use mile-markers and they designed their roads purposefully so that they all really led to Rome. So are you ready for this? Let's Rome!
