Granada is one of the gems of Andalusia, that probably attracts even more tourists than Seville. Even though the two are quite close I found that they were very different, not only for their location, with Granada being further inland and a bit higher in the mountains, but also for how the city is structured and their atmosphere.
Triana is one of the most famous parts of Seville, not only for its vibrant culture and colourful tiles but also because its inhabitants identify more with the neighbourhood than with the city itself.
Exactly one year ago today – the day that I started to write this post – I went to the IAEA Staff Association ball in the stunning Hofburg Palace, in the centre of Vienna. This has probably been one of the highlights of last year as it was truly an extraordinary experience.
Ever since I spent a month in Spain last September, I have wanted to discover more parts of this gorgeous and sunny country. This is why I was so excited to explore a part of Catalonia, a region to the North East of Spain, after the Christmas holidays.

The wonderful city of Seville has a lot to offer: amazing food, great people, fantastic weather, gorgeous monuments and incredible history.
Located in the centre of the beautiful city of Seville, the capital of the Andalusian region in Spain and one of the hottest cities in mainland Europe, the Alcázar is probably the city’s main tourist attraction.
Each summer I go on holiday to the South of Italy with part of my family. As soon as we all get there, it seems that we all fall into some sort of relaxed routine consisting of soaking up as much sun as we possibly can, going to the beach every day, eating a lot of food, reading until the temperature is bearable again, and going out with friends at night.
Last September I moved to Vienna for a few months, and during this time I tried to travel as much as possible in and around Austria. My very first weekend there was thus dedicated to Austria’s third-largest city, Linz.
On the road towards Roussillon, you’ll notice right away what makes this town different from the others in the region surrounding the Luberon, in southeastern France.
