Beauty around every corner in Luxembourg City

We were stunned at how photogenic Luxembourg City was. With its quaint cobbled streets, historic buildings, and views straight out of a fairytale, this picturesque city is full of charm. And visiting in October only added to the beauty of this place – the paths around the city and the Alzette river were lined with gorgeous autumnal colour!

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.

Strolling through the alleyways of Auray

Auray is a charming town, with cobbled streets and historic half-timbered houses, known particularly for its extremely picturesque harbour, Saint Goustan. Nowadays, it is a pleasant yachting harbour with an abundance of restaurants and bars at which to enjoy the lovely views.

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.

Historical Dutch homes at Zaanse Schans

Located in Northern Holland, Zaanse Schans was created by architect Jaap Schipper who wanted to promote the industrial history of a typical Zaans residential area so he did so by importing windmills and historical Dutch homes. As soon as I entered Zaanse Schans I was instantly captivated with the quaint and picturesque neighbourhood.

Perfect weekend getaway Dinant

We visited Dinant for a quick weekend getaway. Dinant is in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium. It is a lovely little city in the valley of the Meuse River. The steep, narrow valley necessitated the city’s growth to be long and narrow along the banks of the river. It makes quite the picturesque setting.

Picturesque Ålesund is hard to find

Hidden away in the fragmented coastline of central Norway lies the picturesque gem of Alesund. This city surrounded by islands and fjords boasts not only beautiful landscapes, but some of the country’s most exquisite architecture. Here, wonderful art nouveau buildings line the waterfront really just putting Alesund over the top as one of Norway’s most scenic spots.

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.
