When we decided to turn my boyfriend’s work trip into a mini-vacation by spending four days in London, we had a huge list of things to see. But the first thing we put on our list was the Kew Royal Botanical Garden. And after spending six hours there to see only half of it, I would return there in a heartbeat. So keep reading to find out why and get some tips to plan your visit.
London is probably one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Even though one of the most expensive, and recently plagued by one too many terrorist attacks, it’s still a top destination. It might have to do with the historical touristic attractions, the culturally rich background or the hip vibe of “must-see” restaurants, cafes and markets. Whatever your interest, there’s lots to do and see in the UK capital.

I get a feeling that a lot of us have already used Airbnb to book an apartment or a room whenever we travel. So I am always a bit surprised when I meet the occasional reluctant person. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. But I just thought by now anyone has tried it once.
You’ve heard me say this a lot: I love exploring a new place through its food. And New York was no exception. I had heard a lot about the really good pizza and bagels and all the amazing restaurant. So I was so excited and super curious to try everything and see if it compared to London for example.
Last year has been amazing travel wise. It brought so many wonderful opportunities that we just couldn’t miss. And Switzerland was just one of those. My best friend from third grate got married (YAY!) and we couldn’t be more happy to witness the happy event. She’s always said I had to visit but there’s always been something else interfering. This time there was nothing that could stop me from going 🙂
One of the things I loved about our trip to New York was how we got to have a plan for almost each day. I hadn’t actually had the time to make an itinerary beforehand and I got a bit of FOMO. But it turned out I didn’t have any reasons at all.
I promised I would come back with a list of thing to see when visiting Amsterdam in the winter. Amsterdam is really popular during spring when you can admire all the flowers in bloom. But who says that’s the only time to visit? Let’s take a look at what you can do during this time of year.
After coming back from England, I wanted to dedicate an article just to British food. And that’s because I think it still has a bad reputation that is not accurate anymore. There might have been a time when the British cuisine meant fish and chips, Sheppard’s pie or breakfast made up of sausage and beans. But that’s not the case anymore.
When my boyfriend first suggested a one week trip to England, all I could think about was London. I planned every hour of our four-day stay in the city and completely neglected that we would spend the first half of our stay in Horsham. After all, what could a small town in England have to offer, especially compared to London?
France – Paris, Great Britain – London, Germany – Berlin. Ukraine – Kiev, Italy – Rome (fill in the blanks). Whenever we talk about visiting a country we associate it with its capital city. It’s easy, you probably can reach it by plane very fast and at low costs, it’s safe, it does not raise any major risks and is as comfortable as possible, with cosmopolitan capital cities hosting five-star hotels and international cuisine. And most of the times it’s very familiar. But is that what you came there for?
