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.
A friend of mine came to visit me in the South of France a few days ago, and I took that as an opportunity to show him around the city of Avignon, very well-known in France for its history, its theatre festival and, surprisingly, for a song.
Cornwall has a lot to offer with its huge variety of landscapes: from white sandy beaches, breathtaking and windy cliffs and wild moorlands, to cute little towns and small harbours.
St Ives is a small town in the South West of the UK, and it is one of the most popular destinations in Cornwall. It is surrounded by beautiful beaches and has a lot of narrow cobbled streets sprinkled with cute independent shops. Most of all, it has this coastal-town vibe that I really like, and that I will try to describe here in listing the things that, in my opinion make St Ives special.
Did you grow up in a royal family? Do you have a 15-bedroom villa in the countryside? Do you have very puffy (and impractical) dresses that you actually wear? If you answered ‘yes’ to at least one of the above questions, then we have very different lives.
I stayed in Russia for a month in order to study the language through language courses and immersion. It was an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn or improve their language skills, as immersion proves to be very useful to truly learn a language.
A few days before I left for Saint Petersburg, I stayed at my nan’s in Paris, and she told me that Leningrad (or Saint Petersburg, as it is now called) was, according to her, the second most beautiful city in the world, the first being Paris.
Amazing architecture, delicious food, cool bridges, thermal baths, fairy lights and breathtaking views. This is how I would describe Hungary’s capital in a few words. Out of all the cities I’ve been to, this is probably one of my favourites. One of the few where I’ve thought “I could live here”. The warm and sunny weather obviously helped.
