Last autumn, we were looking for a destination that would provide that ‘summer feeling’: lots of sunshine and the chance to wear my summer dresses one last time before winter. We ended up chosing Malta and spent an almost perfect week on this island that, besides sun, also has a lot of history.
Looking for a destination that’s perfect for a weekend trip? That offers enough sights and activities to fill a few days, but not too much, so you don’t feel your trip was too short and you missed out on many sights? I would recommend Edinburgh!
As you might have read, I love the city of Sevilla: it is my home away from home. I have lived there and visited numerous times afterwards. I just can’t get enough of the delicious food, picturesque alleys and great atmosphere. Time to share some of my best advice and spread the love!
Over the past 12 years I have been to Andalucía many times, mostly staying in Sevilla. During these trips I explored a lot of Andalucía: from well-known to less touristic places. Here’s a list of places I enjoyed, focusing on those a bit more off the beaten track.
Food and drinks are a major part of all my trips. In the morning, I often find myself already thinking about where we could go for lunch, dinner or drinks later. It wasn’t any different in Tallinn and Helsinki, and we ended up finding some great places that I will share in this post.
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! It has a medieval center with charming cobblestone alleys, as well as some very hip neighborhoods full of street art and industrial architecture.
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.
It’s been years since I visited Stockholm, but the past few months several friends of mine asked for tips for this city. So I thought I might as well put them in a blogpost. Since most of them are sights, I think they should still be up to date.
Last year I visited Warsaw with a friend, and we decided to include a few days in Krakow. Even though we both preferred less-touristy Warsaw, Krakow is a charming town and has plenty to offer to enjoy yourself a few days. Let me share how we spent our 2,5 days in and around this city!
This is one of those cities that totally exceeded my expectations. We only visited Oslo because we found cheap flights to New York from there, but looking back I might prefer Oslo over New York! Oslo has lots of nature. This walking route, along Akerselva river, is the perfect way to experience that. You will even see waterfalls! … More Oslo: walking route along the Akerselva river
