Winter in Iceland – 6 days itinerary

A few weeks ago, I was able to fulfil one of my long-time dreams of going to Iceland, and it was truly amazing. I went there at the beginning of March and stayed there for a week. It was still winter, so to avoid being blocked by snow or other weather-related problems, we decided to go on a road trip in the South of Iceland, which has lower risks of snowstorms.

Enjoying autumn in Quebec

A few weeks ago, I went to Canada with my mum to visit my sister for around 10 days. While I spent most of my time in Montreal, we also booked a few nights in a cute chalet in the Eastern Townships area (Cantons de l’Est in French), which is located right at the border with the US. We stayed there for a short weekend to get away from the city and admire the beautiful foliage and nature.

The Dubrovnik City Walls

Dubrovnik is located in the Southern part of Croatia and is very popular for its beautiful location on the Adriatic Sea, perfect weather, beautiful Old Town and, more recently, for being one of the filming locations of the very popular show Game of Thrones. I visited back in July this year and one of my favourite things there was walking on the city walls that surround the Old Town.

Discovering Ghent

Ghent is one of Belgium’s biggest cities, and probably one of the most beautiful ones. Even though it is far less famous than Brussels and Bruges, it is absolutely worth the visit as this small city is filled with cute streets and pretty buildings, its history is long and interesting, and its art scene rich.

The Rikugien Gardens in Tokyo

There are not many places that struck me as much as this park that me and my sister explored on a wonderfully sunny day in Tokyo, and that is why I think it deserves a whole post to itself. Not only this place seemed to come straight out of a Ghibli movie, it was also very quiet and far from the busy streets of Tokyo.
