Places to visit and dream of
Winter seems to finally have passed, so I thought to make sure of this and hit it again with a Summer destination. Only that this is much more than just a destination, it’s my ultimate getaway, the place that I’ve already seen 4 times and would come back to many times more.read more
Interrupting your Winter mood – and mine, for that matter – with a full blast from the warmer past, as I’m finally getting to tell you a bit about the trip we took to Assisi somewhere in August last year. Yeah, people, I know, I know… it took me about 6 months to write this text, it’s inexcusable. But this year I set my mind to be more active here, so hopefully this will not be the case anymore.

If you’re in the mood for a quick getaway and you happen to live relatively close to the seaside, I would suggest to go for it and take a one-day trip to say hello to the sea. This works especially well when you’re not really the type to soak in the sun all day and prefer enjoying some good food and a walk on the sea shore.read more
Barcelona has been on my “to visit” list for a long time. It’s definitely safe to say that I had great expectations from visiting the city and I was quite looking forward to it. Yet, while I cannot say that I didn’t enjoy my time here, I can neither say that this was the love story I was expecting. And I’m thinking that this happened because I had a projection in mind and…well, you know, maybe this is not always a good thing, be it when we talk about travel or maybe anything else in life.read more
