Italy… Paradise on earth. We’ve all seen the beautiful colored little houses of the villages of Cinque Terre in Italy. Well, after many years admiring them through my computer, I decided to take my car and plan a road trip to this dreamy place.
There are a few restaurants that will leave you incredible memories. Pasta Fresca in Prague was one of them. We decided to have dinner there after reviewing the best recommendations in the area on TripAdvisor. We got quite lucky when we arrived as the restaurant was full and we didn’t order table; but we arrived on the exact time when a couple left the restaurant and got therefore a free table for us! Many other people however were turned back. So my recommendation to you is that you should definitely book a table!
Last week, while I was in Prague, I stayed at the Astoria Hotel. Following some unplanned changes at the end of my stay (I had to extend it for one day and one night), I found myself in the urge to book a hotel for an additional night. I was very sad that I couldn’t extend it at the Astoria as I had the perfect stay there! On my last night, the hotel was fully booked – which is a great sign of success and quality! More than this, I eventually booked my additional night to the Kampa Hotel, and gosh it was so disappointing in every level compared to the wonderful Astoria.
I used to dream of exploring Ireland and its green countryside for a few years already. In October 2016, time finally arrived for the big trip! Arriving to Dublin with my boyfriend, we started to wander into the irish city with its singing accent, its numerous pubs and shops and especially, its very welcoming people.
Here is the recap from this amazing week-end.
There are a few hotels that you’re staying at that you won’t be able to forget. Ever. Hotel Regina Vienna is one of them.
During our first trip to Vienna in February 2016 and celebrating our one year anniversary, we decided to look for a nice hotel located near the main attractions of the city. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Here’s why.
Can you believe I’m living 2 hours away from this Villa Rothschild wonder and I never visited it ? Well, it took me 24 years before going. Still, how could I miss for so long this beautiful place? I think that you need to travel abroad to realize that home is just as beautiful as the rest of the world. Located in St Jean Cap Ferrat on the French Riviera, the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild can be visited all year long. And let me tell you that it worth the trip: between the fabulous gardens to the collecting art inside, you’ll be amazed during the whole tour.
On my trip to Switzerland, I discovered the cutest village ever: Gruyeres. As its name shows, this place is famous for cheese making, but not only. It also has a majestic castle, overlooking all the medieval village, and more museums. Located 1h25-drive from Geneva, I 100% recommend you a visit to this cute place if you’re around; you will feel disconnected from the world. All you can see is nature, mountains, grass and cows. It feels amazing to reconnect (even for just a few hours) to this living world.
We all want to travel the world; take a flight and go on vacation in some paradise beaches, explore big cities and exotic places. It sounds like a dream, isn’t it? But eventually, it all comes to one end: how can we manage and afford ourselves to go on vacation when we have a limited budget?
Well of course, any vacation comes at a cost. If you can manage to easily limit your budget when it comes to hotel bookings (opting for a bed & breakfast won’t cost you the same than a 5* hotel), you don’t seem to have the same flexibility when it comes to flight tickets. But you can try to limit this cost, and here’s how.
Back to our US trip. After a few days discovering San Francisco, it was time for me to pack a few things and leave the city. Our first stop was Monterey, a small coastal city located 2h drive from San Francisco. The city is quite touristic as it has great seafood restaurants and bars. But I think that the most popular attraction is The Monterey Bay Aquarium, one of the biggest and most famous aquariums in the US. And that’s exactly what we picked for starting our tour in Monterey.
We left San Francisco quite early to arrive in Monterey at 10am. We started by visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Tickets can be purchased here and cost 49.95$ per adult, which can be seen as quite expensive. You can have better deals though by booking packages with hotel partners if you intend to stay in the city for more than a day.
