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.
For this second post of 2020, I will talk about a short trip I took a few months ago now in one of Europe’s smallest countries: Luxembourg. I went there for a few days to visit a friend of mine that lives and works there, and I had a wonderful time.
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.
As I’ve mentioned multiple times in some of my previous posts, there are a lot of pretty towns in Provence and in the South of France in general. Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is absolutely one of them, though it distinguishes itself from the others thanks to is location and its history.
Provence is a wonderful region in the Southeast of France. Known for its warm weather, Marseille and its lovely harbour, the turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea, great food, lavender fields, olive oil and cute towns. It is also very famous for the Gorges du Verdon, a river canyon that is said to be one of the biggest and most beautiful canyons in Europe.
