With the colder weather and winter officially approaching, I thought it would be a great time to post about some colder destinations, starting off with Iceland! You may remember that I went there earlier this year and I only got to posting about our amazing itinerary. Now, it’s finally time to wind back up to that trip and share more about this fantastic destination – one of my all-time favourites so far, and I’m not a fan of cold weather so that says a lot.
Sunshine, palm trees, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica or even Venice… a lot of things come to mind when thinking about Los Angeles, and I always associated it with a certain freedom and progress, a glamourous vibe, and the world of endless possibilities stemming from the association of the “American dream” and Hollywood.
Located in the southern part of Quebec, between Montreal and Quebec City, the Mauricie region offers the perfect weekend getaway for city-dwellers wishing to escape the bustling city life. Even though it is where the industrialisation of Canada started, its two main cities are comparatively small, and the majority of the region’s land is just nature.
Montreal is a vibrant and international city, associating perfectly its European heritage and a very modern and outgoing North-American style. There, you’ll find cute little streets with smaller houses as well as big skyscrapers, a rich cultural scene and a plethora of restaurants specialising in all sorts of different cuisines.
October is one of my favourite months of the year, because all the leaves in the trees turn orange and red, the weather is “cosy cold” – as opposed to freezing cold – and it is also my birthday month. This year, it was very busy but at the same time amazing! My favourite things about this month: My latest trips and adventures Hobbies and distractions: General thoughts: There were a lot of exciting and new things happening in October, in all areas of my life, and with the last two weeks of holidays I have mainly felt incredibly grateful to be able to afford and have everything that I do. These past few months have also been really busy and as this was my last big holiday of the year, I am also longing for calmer weeks and going back to a nice routine in my place. Looking forward to: How was October for you? What are you looking forward to? Also published in October of previous years: My favourite things about summer in …
Located in the South-Eastern part of Austria, in a region called Styria, close to the Slovenian border, Graz is, despite its less than 300 thousands inhabitants, the second biggest city in Austria. It is a modern and vibrant city, with a stunning UNESCO-World-Heritage centre and an amazing cultural scene, so much so that it earned the title of Cultural Capital of Europe in 2003.
Have you always wanted to escape your daily life and the hustle and bustle of the city you live in? Do you want to spend some time away from technology, reconnecting with yourself, a friend or a partner? Do you feel like you need to be surrounded by nature to truly relax? Well, staying in a cabin in the woods might be just what you need!
Paros is a beautiful island in the Aegean sea that is becoming more and more famous as it is quieter than the most touristic islands, while still offering the quintessential Greek experience and landscapes: whitewashed houses, bright pink bougainvillea trees, charming and picturesque towns and, of course, stunning beaches. All of these give you the opportunity to spend a perfect holiday in Greece and the four days we spent there were definitely amazing!
Already some weeks ago, the weather started to get rainier and colder, pumpkins started to appear in the stores, I seem to reach out to my blanket more and more, and sleeveless tops have been covered with chunky jumpers. It seems like Autumn is very much here, and even though letting go of summer is hard, I am quite excited for what this new season will bring – if it ever stops raining!
Even though September is supposed to be a summer month for the most part, this year it was really hard to forget that Autumn and Winter were on their way. Thankfully, I managed to extend the summer a bit with some holidays at the beginning of the month, but since I have been back to Brussels, it is mostly grey and rainy.
