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!).

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.

Snowdonia, a full spectrum for the senses

Snowdonia is known for its wet weather, but variation is the spice of life. On a grim day its moody and then when the sun shines, the region sparkles with crisp clarity. In the summer, the hours are long and in the winter, the peaks are coated with snow.

The old city of Dordrecht celebrates its history

If you are looking to venture a city this summer, consider the old township of Dordrecht! Its rich history is still reflected in its medieval houses, merchant mansions, harbor quarters with warehouses, museums and churches. Dordrecht has almost 1,000 monuments to justify this.

Walking the city walls of Dubrovnik

I arrived in Dubrovnik in the peak of Summer. It was so hot, that I found myself lounging around on pebbled beaches, dipping in and out of the Adriatic Sea, eating at least a gelato a day and drinking ice-cold beer until the sun went down.

No modern conveniences in Prokosko Jezero

Located 1670 meters above sea level this shepherd town with no electricity attracts tourists during spring and summer. When winter hits, the entire town is covered in snow forcing the inhabitants to take their flocks and reside in towns at the base of the mountain. The scenic mountaintop is perfect for hiking but don’t expect modern conveniences!

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.
