Bouillon, rural pearl in The Ardennes

An oasis in the heavily forested area of rural Belgium, Bouillon sits proudly on the edge of the river Semois. You won’t have to drive far into the town before catching a glimpse of the magical Bouillon Castle, which has presided over the streets below since the Middle Ages.

Esch-sur-Sûre for sure

Another cute little fairytale town with a castle, although this one is in ruins (the castle, not the town). The original 8m tall tower still stands on a giant cliffside, and the town is almost completely encircled by the winding Sûre River.

Český Krumlov, a Bohemian Rhapsody

Walking down the cobbled stone laneways of Český Krumlov early in the morning, it is easy to feel like you are stepping back in time. The streets of this South Bohemian town are lined with gothic, renaissance and baroque style houses, with large boulders on every corner, placed originally to avoid damage from the horse and carts cutting corners.

Lovely little Vianden

Vianden is lovely. I fell in love with this small town while I was still on the bus. It has a small river winding its way through the town, with steep hills either side, and the houses are old and quaint, the streets are cobbled and quiet. It’s probably busy at the height of summer, but at the beginning of October it was nice and peaceful.

Neuschwanstein Castle, a Disney dream come true

Perched at the top of the hill and surrounded by rolling green valleys and leafy forests, stands the majestic Neuschwanstein Castle. You can see why King Ludwig wanted to build his palace here, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Edinburgh Castle above it all

To me, Edinburgh was the most captivating of the cities we visited on this trip. The grand old stone buildings, the charm of Old Town, the Georgian and Victorian architecture of New Town, and being a city bustling with activity; – let alone the highly visible Edinburgh Castle sitting high on a hill above it all.

A breath of fresh air in Tuscany

Tuscany is just as picturesque as it appears in every film and photograph. Rolling hills of green vineyards in every direction scattered with pale stucco villas and castles. It was a breath of fresh air – a great place to enjoy the peace and quiet or to partake in top notch wine tasting and dining, depending on what you’re looking for. One could easily spend a week or two exploring Tuscany alone, but as always, we felt a need to keep moving on.
