Happy holidays everyone! ✨ I am not currently in Brazil, and in fact I was there about three years ago, but I thought that since this post is going up on Christmas Day, I’d post a few memories from the year when me and my family went to Fortaleza, in the North-East of Brazil, to celebrate Christmas and the New Year. As Europeans, it felt quite strange to spend a usually “cold” holiday season in the Southern hemisphere, and here are the things that I loved the most about it!
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.
These two summer months have just been amazing. My summer started off with two weeks of holidays where I went to visit my family in the South of France and Italy – where I also traveled to Tuscany. After a few weeks in Brussels, I left again for an idyllic week in Greece, followed by two weeks in Brussels.
At the beginning of July, I went on a trip to Italy to discover and rediscover some parts of this beautiful country. Our trip started in the magnificent city of Renaissance, capital of Tuscany: Florence.
Located in the Verdon National Park in the South of France, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a charming little town in the heart of Provence that has been listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France and attracts many tourists each year, thanks to its stunning location and very “Provençale” atmosphere.
Summer is definitely underway now and I already have a lot of things to share, holiday plans and goals and vision for the time of the year, which is probably my favourite. I feel like summer is the time of the year where I have more time, I dedicate myself to my hobbies much more and I just have more energy overall.
After many months waiting for warmer temperatures, summer finally arrived in Belgium too, and with it lots of fun activities and things to do. It felt as if the city woke up after many cold days and especially after 2 years marked by the pandemic restrictions.
The Elaphiti islands, or Elaphites, are several islands stretching out just northwest of Dubrovnik. The three main ones are Koločep, Šipan and Lopud, but there are many smaller ones as well. They are accessible by boat, and there are many tours that start in Dubrovnik and take you around them.
