Switzerland City Guides - Zürich

Switzerland City Guides - Zürich

Zurich is definitely my favorite Swiss city, I had never been there before and was not sure quite to expect but I founded it to be stunningly beautiful and full of places to go. Although is one of the most expensive cities in the world, there are ways to get around this.

You can easily spend in the city from 2-3 days exploring, so here I’m going to tell you some amazing things to do:

La Festa Major de Gràcia

La Festa Major de Gràcia

The origin of the festival is almost parallel to the urbanization of the town. There is the first reference documented in 1817, when there is a record that was made in Can Trilla in honor of the Virgin of August. The festival is consolidated during the second decade of the nineteenth century and takes on an increasingly civic and religious character, with many organizations and associations that collaborate with it.

Switzerland City Guides - Bern

Switzerland City Guides - Bern

Switzerland’s capital surrounded on three sides by the River Aare is often overlooked on a European itinerary, I went last winter and explored for two days which I found more than enough for the old city… it’s a good place to stay more if you’re planning to do some day trips or explore around, for example Lucerne is only an hour and a half away and Interlaken where two of the most spectacular lakes meet is an hour away from Bern.

Stonehenge - Bath & Windsor Castle

Stonehenge - Bath & Windsor Castle

London is one of my favourite cities in the world and will likely steal your heart too, but if you have any more than three days in the city, take the opportunity to get out of London and see more of the UK as there are some great day trips to take from London.

I will talk about the one we did, we went with Viator because it was easier this way to see 3 great places in just one day trip as i didn'thave enough time to spend all day in just one place. They pick you up at your hotel early in the morning and the first stop is Windsor Castle after that we make our way to the beautiful town of Bath and last but not least the amazing Stonehenge. Is one of the most popular day trips from London and you have enough time to enjoy in each place the one i wish i should’ve spend more time is Bath, is just such a cute little town.

London

London

Oh, how I love this city. It was the first european city that I visited and I definitely now understand why it is the most visited city on earth. It is a place filled with history, culture and class and it almost imposible to be without something to do. Its one of those magical places that can be visited again and again and always be surprised. Every day you see something new and interesting.

Being a city thats always on top of many travelers bucket list it is expected to be a little expensive, but like every great city there are many free activities and things to do that don’t require a large amount of money.

My trip to Portugal

My trip to Portugal

No matter how much time we schedule for vacation it never really feels like enough. Which is why we know that sometimes all you may have is a precious day to spend exploring new places. During my time in Portugal I was staying at Faro in Algarve with some friends for almost a week, and we did all the explorations we could to the near places. Overall, Portugal is an affordable country compared to other destinations, is also safe and easy to navigate.

Fly to Iceland for under $650

Fly to Iceland for under $650

I live in Costa Rica, I’m visiting Iceland and I only paid $650 for it

Have you ever been at work, slowing slipping into that dull and dreary state, and suddenly catch yourself daydreaming? Your mind starts to wander, you start to ponder the idea of grabbing a backpack, a camera, a tent and sleeping bag and leaving everything behind.

You start to imagine all the beautiful and vast landscapes of places you’ve always wanted to visit and all the opportunities of adventure that may arise. You think about all the sunrises and sunsets you could see through the doorway of synthetic fabric of your tent and all the clear rivers and oceans you could swim in. You start to smile, a rush of emotions surges throughout your body and you immediately decide to do everything you just thought and felt.  You feel alive.

A week in Italy

A week in Italy

I didn’t know which country I wanted to talk about first but let’s be honest with each other, all of us have an unspoken bond with Italy – so why not start here? No life is complete without a trip to this beautiful country, a place that leaves you wanting to return as soon as you’ve left to continue discovering all it has to offer. Theres so much to do in Italy that it would take a time a lifetime to experience everything; so for now relax, take in the scenery and enjoy a gelato. 

I spent one week in Italy where we had the chance to visit Rome, Florence, Pisa and Venice. So if any traveler has at least a week to spend in Italy, there are countless destinations available that will fascinate and inspire you to explore even more; and just like many places in Europe, you can do all of it by train – just like I did.

Here are some of my recommendations to inspire your Italian trip, all based off of my own personal experiences.
