Back in April, I spent four days in Rome. It was my second time there, so I already knew the city and I had already visited a few sites. Rome is my favorite city, besides my own. There is so much history in every corner, the atmosphere and vibes are outstanding, the food is amazing and it’s so pretty that it is hard not to fall in love with this city!
Today I’m listing all the must-dos for a first timer in the Eternal City!
The Instagram Spots
Toss a coin into the fountain but make sure you do it the right way!
The Trevi Fountain, the largest fountain in Rome, is probably most well-known for the unique superstition and traditions surrounding it. Supposedly, if you toss a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder, you’ll be destined to return to Rome someday. If you want to take it a step further, you can throw three coins over your shoulder. The first one ensures your inevitable return to Rome. The second one promises you’ll find love. And the third one, that your love will lead to marriage.
Welcome to the Allgäu, the land of lakes, castles, palaces and mountains
For a short trip to Neuschwanstein castle, the Hotel Das Rübezahl in Schwangau is the perfect place to be. And with its mountain scenery and castles, the Allgäu is one of the top spots of Germany, so you’ll have plenty to explore.
My mom and I just got back from our 4 days roadtrip in Bavaria, and we couldn’t be more delighted! During those 4 days, we spent our first two days in Munich! For this first stop, I wanted to stay in the heart of the city so that my mom and I could easily walk around and explore, and there’s no hotel more luxurious in the area than the Hotel Bayerischer Hof!
This grand 5-star property was originally built in 1841. And fun historical fact, it has been owned and operated by the same family since 1897! The hotel boasts more than 330 rooms and suites of different styles, 40 halls and meeting rooms, 6 bars, 5 restaurants, a fitness center, a massive spa and a rooftop pool, a cinema, a nightclub and much more! We should have stayed a week to explore and experience it all!
So I thought it would be nice to share with you our experience at this hotel, and show you its services.
City breaks. Or how to go on holidays for two days!
This is something we can easily do while living in Europe. And it actually enables me to clear my head and to do so easily. The feeling you get after being away for two days is that you went on holidays. Sure, it’s intense, but so refreshing at the same time!
One of my favorite city breaks was Seville. The city is just AMAZING!
We did most of the sightseeing on the first day and walked a grand total of 16km. On the second day, we took our time and enjoyed taking pictures with a more relaxed schedule.
Paris is a lovely place to enjoy the festive season! There are many nice decorated spots and some beautiful Christmas trees!

Every year, a giant tree is erected in the very heart of the Galeries Lafayette’s central court. Standing high above all shoppers, it shines against a dazzling backdrop erected in Art Nouveau architecture! This tree is a sight to behold in itself and makes any stroll in the iconic department store well worth it. Only if you’re not afraid of crowds!
