Magical Malta: Visiting Valletta

VISITING VALLETA (nicknamed Superbissima — Most Proud) + Capital of Malta. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’re such a quaint OLD city and essentially Baroque in style and character. Survived WWII and rising above the ashes. Magical Malta I call the island. I like how it uses the grid system so the streets are easy to navigate since I have […]

Both cities are very cold in the winter but it is still considered high season because of the Christmas markets and winter wonderland feeling it portrays. Route: Flew to London Heathrow → Vienna → Bus to Budapest → London Heathrow → Home […]

Travel is not about bragging rights

+ Travel is NOT about bragging rights or just checking things off your bucket list! + Travel is about experiencing the new & facing the unknown. The world is huge so it is vital to get even a teeny tiny glimpse of it. Travel is not about running away or escaping  — because wherever you go, […]

Greece: Athens New Hotel

Athens New Hotel

Mai found this little gem called Athens New Hotel on Jetsetter.com and we booked two rooms after checking out the review on tripadvisor. I really love boutique hotels and this was a great find. Athens Hotel is located in the center of the city with a great view at the rooftop bar and restaurant. It didn’t […]

Greece: Serene in Santorini

Santorini Information: Ferry website: Hellenic Seaways @http://www.hellenicseaways.gr/index.php/en/ Hotel: Homeric Poems @http://www.homericpoems.gr/ After three days of non-stop partying & drinking at Mykonos, Santorini  was our next stop on our all girls Greece trip and it was much needed. We took the ferry from Mykonos to Santorini using Hellenic Seaways. The ferry ride was definitely not as […]

Partying at Cavo Paradiso in Mykonos

What’s the number one thing to do in Greece? Partying at Cavo Paradisio in Mykonos! The rest of the time at Mykonos was spent exploring and hitting up the day clubs all dotted along the edge of the island.  We were able to hit up one – Cavo Paradiso where we had a very crazy […]

Delos Island – blast to the past in Greece

Delos Island: Our first day excursion on (or from) the island of Mykonos. Delos Island is one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece. The excavations in the island are among the most extensive in the Mediterranean so of course, we decided to make a day trip of it. Information: The excavations are open […]

Budapest: St. Stephen’s Basilica

  About 50 meters from my flat was St. Stephen’s Basilica. AWESOME. At night, the front was transformed into a mini ice rink for the children. All around that were Christmas market stalls. They were playing Christmas music along with American top 40 (listening to Justin Bieber was a little funny in front of a […]

AirBnB: My digs in Budapest

Check out my AirBnB digs in Budapest: For my stay in Budapest, I got an apartment using AirBnB.  I love airbnb because you can usually find some cool places to stay and pretty reasonably priced. I loved it! It was right in the middle of things – right next to St. Stephen’s basilica, restaurants, and […]

Vienna: Visiting the Schönbrunn Palace

I’m outside of the Schönbrunn Palace – the summer residence of the Hapsburg monarchs when they ruled. It’s got 1,441 rooms and is done in the Rococo style. The palace itself is HUGE but it also has ginormous meticulously cared for gardens, a maze/labyrinth and a zoo now. I chose to purchase the Winter Pass […]

Vienna: Belvedere Palace

The Belveder Palace….now where they make the vodka. 🙂 It’s actually two buildings/palaces created in the Boroque style. They call it the lower and upper palace with a kick ass garden inbetween.  The Baroque palace complex was built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy. It’s basically a museum. If you’re not interested in looking […]
