Not even the rain spoils a day at Trebinje

It’s been raining in Trebinje for the past few days, and I actually don’t mind. When it rains the clouds slowly descend from the sky, blanketing the valley in a cover of fog. There’s a very peaceful and nostalgic ambience here, one that makes leaving feel much more bittersweet.

Lavertezzo doesn’t need a season to shine

Lavertezzo is by far one of my favorite places in Switzerland with incredible turquoise waters and smooth sunbathing rocks as well as good Italian food (thanks to its close proximity to the border of Italy). Increasingly more popular, this spot is great in spring, summer, and fall although the hotter it is the more likely it is to be crowded (so get here earlier if you can!).

Giethoorn, Venice of the North

Giethoorn has such a simple beauty that it hardly seems real. A bohemian canal, small wooden bridges, vivid flowers and pretty thatched-roof farmhouses and a fairytale-like garden. I felt like I was in a completely different time period! It was absolutely stunning!

Meet me at Lucerne’s Kapellbrücke bridge

En route to Zurich from Bern, you can stop at this Swiss gem of a city. Lucerne (or “Luzern”) is situated in the midst of nature, with its eponymous lake and view of the Alps within it. The city is famous for its Chapel Bridge, a 14th-century bridge which has burned down several times over the centuries, but continues to stay upright.

Buda-bye – Mostar

Mostar translates to ‘bridge’ in English, and the city was highlighted by its infamous arched bridge. It was warm enough to shed off my big winter coat, which is saying something for mid-November.

In the area surrounding the bridge, there were about six or seven mosques. My favorite moment of the Bosnia trip was standing on that bridge and listening to the call to prayer echoing through the mountains.
