Not being able to travel is hard. Taking a walk around our own neighbourhoods while being fully present helps to capture some of the magic of travel, because we notice what makes it unique. For this reason, I decided to spend a weekend break on Malta’s sister island Gozo and picked Xlendi Central Apartment as the perfect relaxing stay for me as it’s close to the picturesque Xlendi Cliffs and some scenic Mediterranean coastal walks.
Whenever I hear the word waterfall, I feel butterflies in my stomach, my eyes get a little bigger, my heart beats a little faster, and my smile gets a little wider… much like falling in love. I am always amazed by how beautiful a waterfall is. Really, I find it so magical and it mesmerizes me big time!
The weather might be grey in Reykjavik for most of the year but a walk around the city quickly reveals a world of colour – there’s a treasure trove of street art adorning building walls, underpasses, houses, and everything in between.
I spent my last few hours before my flight back home wandering around Iceland’s capital Reykjavik. I’m glad I did as I fell in love with this little city. And, you can’t blame me. This little gem in the middle of the ocean is overflowing with beauty, charm and magic.
Located a couple of hours north of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, lies the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It is often referred to as Iceland en miniature or mini Iceland since it contains so many different landscapes you encounter all around Iceland and makes a great road trip for those travellers unable to take a week and drive the full Ring Road around the island.
If you could have a wish list of natural wonders to visit in your lifetime, you may well find them all located along Iceland’s South Coast. In fact, the South Coast is one Iceland’s gems with the most dramatic and varied scenery Iceland has to offer. You can expect to encounter many of the country’s best features here, including black sand beaches, vast lava fields, majestic waterfalls, glaciers and much more!
If you’re visiting Iceland for the first time, then you definitely want to begin with what’s called the Golden Circle since it features three stunningly beautiful locations: an extremely powerful waterfall, a geyser which erupts frequently, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The best part is that you can do the whole trip in a single day and makes incredible fodder for your Instagram feed!
I am still reeling from my breathtaking trip to Iceland as I just could not seem to get enough of it. My dream is to visit every country in Europe and Iceland was basically one of the last countries I had planned to visit. However, COVID-19 changed my plans so drastically that I ended up visiting Iceland much sooner than I expected to. However, I do not regret it one bit!
Is Vilnius worth visiting? It sure is! There are a wide range of things to do in Vilnius for all visitors and it’s definitely a highlight of any trip to the Baltics. Despite being a city with a small population of just half a million, it’s extraordinarily welcoming. It’s the perfect place to get lost for a few days and a popular stop on the Baltic tour route.
I wanted to take a short weekend break and celebrate my birthday in style, and I could not have chosen a better spot than Riga, the capital city of Latvia. Despite being huge for its population, Riga still managed to punch well above its size due to its magnificent architecture, charm and food!
