Another highlight of the south includes Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, it is 15 minutes south of Kirkjubaer on a compact dirt road (Look for a yellow sign pointing to Laki/Holt) and follow the road. You cant miss it! It is worth the drive and the trek to the top. These ancient canyons are breathtaking to see in person.

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.

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.

The following morning we awoke to a light frost, the frosty whiteness sticking all the loose fallen leaves to the picnic table beside us. We got moving reasonably early, with a plan to jump over to the next beau village, La Roque-Gageac, only a handful of miles along the valley floor. We soon arrived and parked up, before walking first to the banks of the passing river to take in the wonderful reflective view of the town’s collective façade.

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.

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.

This little town on the banks of the Moselle river really took us by surprise. We planned the trip on a whim and didn’t have many expectations. Cochem is a very peaceful town which allows you wake up and enjoy a slow breakfast, stroll the streets at your own pace, and even have an impromptu wine tasting of the local grape: Reisling.

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.
