Colmar is one of those villages you’d find in a snow globe, that’s how beautiful and charming it is. The very well preserved historical old town with its cobbled streets is a bit of a time trap, taking you back several hundred of years.

Gásadalur is a tiny village located in the Mykines Island in the Faroe archipelago. Situated at the edge of a tall cliff and surrounded by top peaks of Mykines islands Gásadalur is definitely one of the beautiful villages on Earth. Because of remoteness, this village only has a population of 18.

It was literally love at first sight moment with this place. A highway with scenic views on both sides going directly into the mountains and it slowly reveals the magic of one of the most beautiful places that we have witnessed.

Manarola, possibly most famous for its photogenic scenery, made famous by Google images and attracts the whole world due to its different and tranquil style of life.
One of the most popular out of the five towns in Cinque Terre, which translates to ‘five lands’, is noticeable. A great place if you enjoy lovely views, a calm atmosphere, delicious food, and escape to a small village.

To ever see Matterhorn with my own eyes seemed quite unreal. But, to be fair, living in the Swiss Alps – even more so. That would have been something unthinkable years ago. But hey, I’m here now. Therefore, living less than a 3-hour drive away from Zermatt was a reason good enough to finally go visit Zermatt and see the beast that Matterhorn is. And so we did!

On our way to Dubrovnik, we stopped on the cliff side of Blagaj, Bosnia. I have no idea if this place holds an historic significance or if it’s just a photo op. Either way the place was gorgeous and I loved the water coming out of the cliff side and the way the restaurants show cased it.

As short drive away from Gallocanta, is one of Spain’s most beautiful villages. If it had a body like France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, then Albarracín would most definitely be on it. From the motorway, much like so many places, you can’t imagine what it would be like and you are almost tempted to by-pass it, although the 20 minute deviation is definitely worthy of your turning wheels.

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.
