A few weeks ago, Ioana from the blog Smileyioana asked me if I would be interested in writing a guest post on her fantastic blog. She writes amazing informative and beautiful posts about travelling, lifestyle and also sustainability. There, you’ll find there great posts about Traditional Easter-egg decorating in Romania, Tips to live your best life, or even a Travel guide to visit Füssen near Munich. I was so excited and honoured by this opportunity so I gave all I had and decided to write about one of my favourite city ever: Seville. If you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember my posts about this beautiful city, where I talked about some of its specific landmarks. In the post for Ioana, I decided to list 8 of the most amazing things to do in Seville, and it made me miss the city so much! So, if you’re interested to have a look at it, don’t hesitate to check it out and also explore all the other great posts that Ioana published on …
It is not by mistake that Iceland is sometimes called the Land of Fire and Ice: with both volcanoes and glaciers, it truly is a land of contrasts. For this reason, winter in Iceland has a lot to offer, with breath-taking snow-covered landscapes and stunning glaciers. But it is also necessary to take some precautions as winter there is really no joke, and the power of nature is truly humbling.
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.
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.
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!
Milos is a stunning island in the Cyclades that, despite its small size, has a lot to offer and plenty of unique landscapes and landmarks that are nothing short of stunning. This was the first island I visited in my 10-day trip to the Greek islands, where I discovered two Cyclades: Milos and Paros.
When you plan a holiday to the Greek islands, you will have hundreds of different islands to choose from, and unless you have an unlimited time at your disposal, you’ll have to select a few to visit, leaving the rest for another trip in the future. For this holiday in August, we selected two fairly well-known, yet not-so-famous Cyclades islands: Milos and Paros.
