If you are a foodie then Paris is undoubtedly on your radar for a visit. It has so much to offer and it’s not only about dining in the best Michelin starred restaurants either. The Paris foodie guide is a bit self-indulgent, but I hope that you will enjoy my choices as much as I do. Gourmet Paris for me...
Sorrento was founded by the Greeks in 600 BC and was an important trading town in medieval times. It is the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and is officially on the Sorrentine Peninsular. This is a charming town with a touch of class that sprawls leisurely along the cliffs, overlooking the ocean, and offers views of Naples and Mt....

  I am no longer of an age where I want to party all night or get horribly drunk and then think that I have had a good time. Don’t get me wrong, I am not judging, but it’s not for me anymore. My idea of a bar is usually in a 5 star hotel sipping a champagne cocktail, but...
Bratislava
If you have seen either of the movies “Euro Trip” or “Hostel" you will most definitely have the wrong impression of Bratislava. I can assure you that it is totally safe and nothing at all like it is portrayed.  Bratislava is laid back and the town oozes old world charm. It really should be included in your Eastern European...

If you are lucky enough to spend Christmas in Paris you will be delighted by this magical city. The aroma of vin chaud and roasting chestnuts fills the air and millions of fairy lights sparkle.

Milan was not a destination that I thought of visiting. A friend of mine moved to the city a while ago so it was a great excuse to visit and catch up and I discovered just how easy it was to see Milan in one day. The first thing that surprised me about the city was that part of it...
Gelato
Who doesn’t love a good ice-cream or to be more precise a good gelato? On my trip this year I made a concerted effort to eat the best gelato in Italy as often as possible. After all I had to do research for this article or at least that’s what I told my husband.  Somehow I don’t think that he...
Herculaneum
Not many people have heard about Herculaneum, but everyone knows about Pompeii. My guide to visiting Herculaneum shows you just how easy it is to enjoy this stunning archaeological site right on Naples doorstep. Herculaneum or Ercolano as it was also known is just a few kilometres away from Naples at the western base of Mt. Vesuvius. It was destroyed...

When I said that I was going to visit Ljubljana the first thing that people asked me is “where did you say that you were you going?” The second question was how on earth do you say it?  So for those of you who are still uncertain here, it is the phonetical pronunciation - lyoo-BLYAH-nah and if you don’t...
