On Thursday, June 8, our good friends got married in a little village next to Bergamo. This merry occasion was a great chance to prolong the weekend and to go on a road trip around the Lake Garda. Garda is stunning, and the short trip was absolutely worth it! Breathtaking views, clear water, cozy towns and delicious food: you will find all this around the lake. In this post, you will find some useful tips on what to see, where to stay and what to eat if you stay in the North of Italy for a weekend.
End of May this year my boyfriend and I were invited to a wedding which took place in Zagreb, Croatia. However, we decided to fly to Graz, because the flights timetable fitted us better. Our idea was to rent a car and drive a small circle Graz – Zagreb – Rijeka – Trieste – Ljubljana – Bled – Graz. The plan was fulfilled to 120% and here are some tips what to see on the way from Graz to Zagreb (other segments of the trip will follow shortly).
Now the time is right to move to the second part of our little Moroccan journey, Marrakesh and Casablanca.
Last year we have already been to Morocco, but very shortly, only three days. That time we visited the northern Morocco and its three cities Rabat, Chefchaouen and Fes (A weekend away in Morocco). Many people told us afterwards that we were crazy, to travel so fast and so intense. However, this was a conscious decision: we travel so quickly in order to find the places we like the most to be able to come back there… Morocco was one of these places. So here we were, in Morocco, this time for 6 days and 4 cities on our itinerary: Agadir, Essaouira, Marrakesh and Casablanca.
Especially now, when the weather in Berlin makes us dreaming about better (read: warmer) place, it is so satisfying – thinking about last long weekend on Sicily. We had such luck with the wetter, bright sun and clear blue skyes three days out of four, temperatures over 18 degrees, everything blossoming and pleasantly smelling… This all was as a bonus to the beautiful nature, cozy cities, delicious food, fresh vegetables and good wine. Therefore, this post is less words, more pictures, juicy colors and captured impressions.
Savor Wiener schnitzel in Vienna, taste locally brewed beer in Bratislava and soak in thermal pools in Budapest – all this is perfectly possible to enjoy during one prolonged weekend and I will tell you how.
This Tuesday we came back from New York, the Number One travel destination in the world. I liked the city a lot and was impressed by the scale and size a lot. This city has so much to offer in all aspects of life (if you have enough money, of course)… Right, there is a but. Some people would definitely throw the stones at me… but I didn’t like New York as much as it was expected from me. Continue reading
…continuing (and concluding) the Georgian post series I want to share our experience in finding an accommodation and choosing places to go and to do.
Almost nine months passed after our Georgian trip, several other beautiful and exceptional countries visited; however, Georgia stays one of my absolute favorites in my whole travelling history. When people ask me the “why” question, I can immediately think (and dive into the pleasant memories) about breathtaking intact nature, rich culture, over-delicious food and wine, fairness and hospitality of the people, attractive prices, easiness of getting around and many other reasons why this country stands out so distinctly. I would go there again without any doubts (especially concerning the fact that WizzAir starts direct connection Berlin – Kutaisi soon) and would advise you to do so too!
Already during the trip we agreed that we loved Malta. It was a four-day trip with a group of friends and this island (more exactly, three islands if you count Gozo and Camino), fit perfect for our mission: drive all around, have fun, chill on the beach, eat, drink, no drama. And here are my tips what to do in this country if you are there for a long weekend and want to pick the best.
