Nestled within the vibrant capital city of Belgium lies a hidden sanctuary, where bustling streets are replaced by lush green landscapes and the cacophony of city life is hushed to a whisper. The parks of Brussels offer visitors a respite from the urban chaos, providing an oasis of tranquility and natural beauty in the heart of the city. Boasting a diverse range of landscapes, from meticulously manicured gardens to vast woodland areas, these parks are not only a haven for locals seeking solace, but also a testament to the city’s commitment to preserving its natural heritage.
Brussels is considered to be boring, grey and overrun by Eurocrats. However, Brussels is a hidden gem which takes time to discover. Locals sometimes tend to overlook its qualities, so this post is to help you appreciate all the little things that make the city a beautiful place to live in.
Anything about Paris is romantic, it’s a poem. Its buildings, its bridges, a river cruise, its alleys, croissants… Everything is perfect, harmonious. You can sit in a park watching what’s around you and get lost in a whirlwind of emotions. From its bustling river banks, the beauty and charm of its architecture, the delicious food, countless opportunities to explore art, culture, and history—the reasons I love Paris are as diverse as the city itself.
Have you ever been to a place where words are not enough to describe its beauty?? Where you feel like it is straight out of your childhood dreams… Cappadocia is one such magical land. Cappadocia is one of the most beautiful ancient areas in Turkey, and if it isn’t on your bucket list, then it should be! I highly recommend taking the time to visit Cappadocia because this is one of those places on earth that really is unlike anywhere else.
If you asked me to describe İstanbul in only three words, I would say: exiting, fascinating, overwhelming. It is not that easy to find the right adjectives because there are no words to describe the kind of special beauty this city has. This city offers you a journey full of adventures where every single day you experience something different and every new day is better than the day before. It’s amazing how the city hypnotizes you and you just can’t help getting addicted to it.
With its golden beaches and sapphire blue sea, its medieval monuments and its charming marina, Monastir offers one of the most attractive faces of Tunisia.
Thanks to Tunisia’s position, at the meeting point of Africa and Europe, the country is steeped in history and has no less than eight UNESCO world heritage sites. Much like Jordan in the Middle East, a number of these ruins are better preserved than their equivalents in Europe.
If you’re dreaming of long, glorious summer days, postcard-pretty beaches and warm dips in the Mediterranean Sea, look no further than Tunisia. With 800 miles of beautiful coastline and a variety of sunbathing spots to discover, from family-friendly resorts to secluded beaches, you’ll love the variety that Tunisia has to offer.
In Tunisia’s capital, the term “living history” really does apply. Here, periods of conquest, trade and independence have woven into the city’s fabric and culture a rich and complex flavour that becomes apparent wherever you explore. Despite that, my boyfriend and I decided to stay in nearby Sidi Bou Said, both for logistical reasons as well as aesthetical ones; we wanted a quick access by car to other parts of the country and we also wanted to spend a couple of nights in this beautiful town that bears resemblance to the island of Santorini.
Tunisia is perhaps most famous for its wide array of historical attractions, including the ancient city of Carthage in Tunis, and the huge Amphitheatre of El Jem near Sousse, which show off the influences of various civilizations that have settled in the country over the years. Sun-seekers can also enjoy its sea and gorgeous Mediterranean beaches.
