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 even the rain spoils a day at Trebinje

It’s been raining in Trebinje for the past few days, and I actually don’t mind. When it rains the clouds slowly descend from the sky, blanketing the valley in a cover of fog. There’s a very peaceful and nostalgic ambience here, one that makes leaving feel much more bittersweet.

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.

Making serious summertime memories in Loket

We’re off to explore a tiny Bohemian town named Loket (Loket in English translates as “elbow”). It got it’s name due to the town centre being surrounded on three sides by the Ohře River, and the shape the river takes is similar to that of an elbow.

Larochette Castle rewards you with a King’s view

First thing you’ll notice is the backdrop of Larochette Castle which gives the town a fairy tale feel! To top it off the cobbled narrow streets definitely add to the magical feel. On our first venture out we explored some of the towns lovely little cafes surrounding the square with great views of the medieval castle.

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.

Počitelj – History resting on the banks of Neretva river

Built in a natural amphitheatre along the Neretva river, this old Ottoman town is one of the best preserved examples in the region. On top of the hill lies a fortress which you can climb up to the top for fantastic views of the town and surrounding area.

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.

La Roche-en-Ardenne answers your wishes

Today we had our first real Belgian adventure! We set off on a two hour drive to the small town of La Roche-en-Ardenne. The drive was incredibly scenic with rolling hills, sheep grazing, lush forests and fields of golden harvest.
