Positano’s colour palette is a gift to the eyes

When our ferry approached Positano, everyone was busy taking photos. Lonely Planet says “Positano is the Amalfi Coast’s most photogenic town”. I totally agree. Just look at the colour. All you need to do is clicking. You don’t need Photoshop or anything else. The whole town is like colour palette, white, pink, yellow, orange. Positano is a place for wandering and exploring. Follow your heart, let the place surprise you.

Drinking espresso on the piazza of Portmeirion

Portmeirion in North Wales is as close to an Italian Village outside of Italy as you can get. The village’s colourful architecture is a mixture of Welsh, Baroque and Italian styles surrounded by beautiful walks and picturesque landscapes.

Green water I saw at Grüner See

Green water I saw in Austria. There is a place called Grüner See. It is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village called Tragöß. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab Mountains and forests. The name “Green Lake” originated because of its emerald-green water.

Douro Valley is the hippest place to be

All of a sudden, the Douro Valley in northern Portugal seems to have become the hippest place to be for wine lovers and everybody else. The landscape is truly breathtaking: rows after rows of lush green vines nestled on steep terraced hills along with small historic villages and imposing Quintas (wineries) sitting either directly on the riverbank or strewn high on the slopes.

Happiness filled my soul in Ramsau

We found it! An off the beaten path destination that stole our hearts. That made time feel as if it stood still. Tucked away in the Bavarian Alps lies the quiet, little, quintessential, dream-like village of Ramsau.

The Sights and Sounds of Salzburg

Salzburg has the look of an enchanted folk story village whilst maintaining a buzzing city atmosphere. It is the combination of old and new which makes Salzburg truly special. Its Baroque styled domed buildings add to the city’s old world charm.

Snow globe village Colmar

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.
