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!

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!).

A choo choo train ride into Knaresborough

It felt incredible to be out of the cramped London streets, and breathing real fresh air! We had been recommended some places nearby. A must visit was a place called Knaresborough. If you Google search Harrogate, you are sure to find a photo of a large train viaduct, with a quaint river running underneath.

Surprised by the quaintness of Zürich

Zürich enchanted us right from the outset. Expecting something of a super-urbanised banking city metropolis, we were surprised to find a town which was so quaint that it could be the setting of a nursery rhyme, with its gothic spires, cobbled streets and oversized clocks.

Dinan, movie set on the banks of River Rance

Have you ever visited a town and believed you were in a set of a movie? Stepping into the quaint medieval town of Dinan and you feel like you have been transported back the medieval era. This is exactly what I felt when I visited the citadel a few weeks ago.

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.

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.

A Tourist in my own Country

Amidst rolling hills and meadows of the British countryside is The Cotswolds, a very famous place for people to explore. Secret gardens, charming rivers and lakes, and quaint architecture in the villages are all part and parcel of what to expect in the Cotswolds, and its location in the Thames Valley, just an hour or so away from London Paddington makes it one of the best getaways from urban life.

Update: The picturesque village Bibury that is taking you back in time to fairytales with dwarfs or with Harry Potter. Low windows, honey-coloured stone houses, enchant the eye and tickle the imagination.
