You might remember that our first post on the blog was about last year’s Christmas. My boyfriend and I decided to spend the holidays with my brother so that’s how we first visited Amsterdam.
Last summer, as it often happens, we had no vacations plans whatsoever. After a lot of brainstorming, we decided that for late September Spain would be a good option.
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.
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?
Whenever I’m visiting another country I love to emerge in the local culture. I find there’s no better way of doing that than indulging in the local cuisine. Ok and probably visiting museums and stuff… but I love food so for me, that’s one of the priorities. Thassos was no exception. Greek food is so good! And that’s why I’ll take you on a gastronomical tour of the island.
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.
OK, so summer vacation has been a lot on my mind lately. And the first thing that comes to my mind is the beautiful island of Thassos. With its diverse beaches and crystal clear water, this gem of the Mediterranean is also known as the “emerald island” thanks to it lush pine forests. It’s simply the dream destination for our summer vacation!
When it comes to summer and beach vacations, Greece is always my first choice. It has to do with the instant feeling I got the first time I visited the country. Like coming back from a very long journey and finally arriving home. It also has to do with its superb beaches, the incredible food, and welcoming people.
I had never seen a bison in real life before. I didn’t even know the difference between a bison, a buffalo and the Romanian term “zimbru”. So if you’re in the same boat with me, you’ll understand my newly found fascination with this rare and beautiful creature.
