Last week I visited Tallinn, Estonia’s capital. A city that is not well known, and I didn’t know what it had to offer either. Turns out, Tallinn is an undiscovered gem!

Last June my parents took me, my husband and sister on a trip to the Algarve in Portugal for their 30-year anniversary. Lucky us! I had not been to the Algarve before, but we will definitely be back, because this region has it all: beaches, authentic towns, great food and – of course – lots of sunshine.
