Around this time last year, my husband and I left for our long awaited holiday to Japan. If you follow my Instagram account, you may have already seen some of the food we ate on our trip. This post has been long overdue but there were tonnes of pictures to go through and as I…

A trip to the Bavarian Alps

If you followed me in my recent posts, I mentioned that during August my husband and I went on a short trip to Bavaria. Besides visiting family, we also spent some days visiting the beautiful Bavarian Alps. We were in the area of Rosenheim and very close to the beautiful Chiemsee, a lake surrounded by…

Snapshots from the Countryside

Having spent the last 3 years (almost!) living in the city, I learned to appreciate the city lifestyle and the benefits of having everything within walking distance – be it green parks, markets, art and culture events, restaurants… However, when it comes to having a holiday or a short break, I find that being closer…

Weekend Break in Vienna

Vienna, Austria’s capital, is just over 2 hours away from Budapest by train. We took our first trip there in December 2014. The weather was really cold and the city was appropriately dressed for the festive season with various Christmas markets, lights and street decorations. We visited Vienna again last July and the city was…

A trip to the Istrian Peninsula

Easter Weekend at Lake Balaton

Being a long Easter weekend here in Hungary, we decided to take a trip and explore the countryside around Lake Balaton. This lake is the largest in Central Europe… just to give you an idea about its size, you could easily fit the island of Malta twice in there! 😵 Lake Balaton is a popular…

Milan in Black & White

This post takes me back to a hot Summer weekend in July. My husband and I took an early Saturday flight to the city of Milan and spent the following two days roaming around the beautiful Italian city. Without a doubt, one of the main highlights of the city is the magnificent Duomo, standing tall…

Snapshots from Norway!

Since my last post, my husband and I travelled to Norway to celebrate his sister’s wedding to a real life Viking! 🙂  They had a lovely ceremony, followed by a delicious dinner, emotional speeches by family and friends, fun games and a lot of dancing till the early hours. It was a great night, where…
