Hundertwasserhaus, elegant and shabby at the same time

You can spot the Hundertwasserhaus from all the way down the street. The facade is colorful, asymmetrical, and inviting, patchwork blues and reds on the building creating striking contrast with the gold fountain in front and the green leafy trees framing it. Somehow elegant and shabby at the same time.

Not a single soul in Fjällbacka

Riding into Fjällbacka was a dream. It’s the most picturesque town I have ever been to. Tiny white houses with red roofs line the rocky shore over crystal blue waters. It’s a small town and it felt even smaller because we literally didn’t see a single person while crossing through the town north to south, in search of our campground.

Vik and the beauty of emptiness

The town of Vik is stunning and it’s easily recognisable for its colourful houses and red-roofed church. Vik is nestled in southern Iceland. Home to under 400 people, it’s services provide a lifeline to the people who live in the remote landscape. With the emptiness, however, comes true beauty.

Positano’s colour palette is a gift to the eyes

When our ferry approached Positano, everyone was busy taking photos. Lonely Planet says “Positano is the Amalfi Coast’s most photogenic town”. I totally agree. Just look at the colour. All you need to do is clicking. You don’t need Photoshop or anything else. The whole town is like colour palette, white, pink, yellow, orange. Positano is a place for wandering and exploring. Follow your heart, let the place surprise you.

Drinking espresso on the piazza of Portmeirion

Portmeirion in North Wales is as close to an Italian Village outside of Italy as you can get. The village’s colourful architecture is a mixture of Welsh, Baroque and Italian styles surrounded by beautiful walks and picturesque landscapes.
