There are few other cuisines as popular as the Italian one. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t ever tried pizza, pasta or tiramisu. And most people love it too! So imagine my excitement at finally having the opportunity to taste the real deal. No interpretations, no shortcuts, the real Italian food right from the source.
For Romanians Italy is a very popular and easy accessible country. There are daily low cost flights with prices starting as low as 9 Euros, so traveling there is as easy as it gets. And yet despite all this, I had never been to Italy. I think all my friends have, but for a while it wasn’t my priority. So here I was this year, wishing badly to fix this problem.
I think I could go to London every year and still have a ton of things left to see. And I bet that’s not just me. The first time we visited London I was so excited to see all the landmarks. And I saw close to none, lol. I just never imagined how big the city is. And how long it would take us to go from one place to another.
I’ve been itching so badly to write this post. My boyfriend and I both love Greek food! And we both agree there’s something really special about it. Because although it’s not exotic like Thai food or pretentious like a Michelin restaurant menu, it’s just as amazing. It’s simple and fresh and oh so tasty. And Crete hasn’t disappointed in this area either. We had some of the best food on the island. And now I am going to tell you where, but most important what to eat when in Crete.
Last summer has come and gone so fast that our trip to Crete seems so long ago. It’s been a busy couple of months and I’ve been meaning to write about Crete earlier, but here we are. It has been one of the best vacations ever. And a huge part of that is because of the amazing beaches. The other part is because of the food, but that’s another story for another time.

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.
Our last day in New York was probably one of the best too. Not only because the weather was so good but we got to see a lot of iconic places. Plus, as it happened on almost every day, we stumbled upon some cool places that even though were not a priority, they deserved a spot on our lists.
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 grade 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.
