Turkey

This is not a post where we’ll feature vintage like pictures with pink flamingos two feet next to us on the beach. That would be in other parts of the Caribbean Sea. Hopefully, we’ll get to tell that story too somewhere in the future. This is a post about our 2 days in Cienfuegos, Cuba, the so-called “Pearl of the South”.

Cienfuegos had already influences of the Spanish Enlightment when it was founded by French emmigrants, who enriched the urban architecture and turned the narrow streets into large boulevards. This is the reason why this colonial town is different from any other in Cuba. Continue reading

The title says it all. When we woke up the next day in the casa particular and went up on the roof where our breakfast was served, the Vinãles landscape hit us like a meteor.

Diana: It reminds me of Vienna!

Edgar: It reminds me of Paris!

First day in Havana – streets that never sleep

First day in Havana – streets that never sleep

Havana. December 2, 2016.

The humidity and overbearing heat strike us as we arrive in the airport. We’re in December and winter has never felt more summerish. We pick a taxi to take us to our first casa particular. Four days left. Maybe that’s the reason why the electricity is cut off. Everything is so hazy and obscure. Continue reading

Welcome to Sintra’s Park and National Palace of Pena

Welcome to Sintra’s Park and National Palace of Pena

This is not a post about any park and palace. This is a post about the most beautiful park and palace you may have the chance to lay your eyes on. Once at its doorsteps, your imagination about the fairytales castles you used to read as a child will be awaken.

Situated in the middle of an exotic vegetation, Pena Palace stands out from afar. Continue reading

Meet Rimetea – a hidden gem in the heart of Transylvania

What’s the best thing to do on a rainy Sunday if you live in the heart of Transylvania and want to grasp a breath of fresh air? We don’t know about you, but we hopped in our friends´ old Peugeout 105 and headed from Cluj-Napoca to Rimetea – a gem hidden in between rocky and hilly landscapes. Continue reading
