Kutná Hora, The Town of Two Cathedrals

Every city I visit, my #1 stop is the cathedral. So imagine my excitement of learning about Kutná Hora, Czech Republic with its nickname, ‘A Town of Two Cathedrals’! And as a spectacular bonus, Kutná Hora has an ossuary church, aka a bone church. The Sedlec Ossuary is world-famous.

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.

Flåm is Norway in a nutshell

A friend once asked me: “Why did you choose Flåm?”. My immediate reply was: “Have you seen the photos?? Goggle it as they speak for themselves!”.

Flåm, a remote township in the middle of the Noreign fjords, is a little slice of picture-perfect paradise. It is a part of the world where nature is still seemingly unspoiled, leaving us in awe of its power and majesty.

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.

Vik and the beauty of emptiness

The town of Vik is stunning and it’s easily recognisable for its colourful houses and red-roofed church. Vik is nestled in southern Iceland. Home to under 400 people, it’s services provide a lifeline to the people who live in the remote landscape. With the emptiness, however, comes true beauty.

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.

Being part of the magic at Lake Constance

It is not often I go to a town and explore it completely afresh. No map, no tourist information centre, no research. When I arrived in Lake Constance (Bodensee), it was pouring with rain. The view over the lake was stunning – crisp blue water, pretty roof tops and a tall church spire. It felt like magic was happening up there and that I was a part of it.

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.
