“The national characteristics… the restless metaphysical curiosity, the tenderness of good living and the passionate individualism. This is the invisible constant in a place with which the ordinary tourist can get in touch just by sitting quite quietly over a glass of wine in a Paris bistro.” -Lawrence Durrell
“….The picturesque seaside towns of the Mediterranean have lured the rich, the famous, and the beautiful to the French Riviera. Yet the areas golden sunshine, clear turquoise waters, and pastel-colored bistros also make the Cote dAzur the perfect spot for a South of France romantic getaway…” –
We are in love with magical Prague, a city of countless myths and legends from its thousand years of history. We completely lost ourselves in the beauty and romance of this ancient city.One of our favorite things to do in Prague was waking around 6am, walking to the Old Town Square, and having the whole quiet town to ourselves.
Grand Bahama is just a perfect island paradise!!! The sand is pure white, and the water reflects 2 crystal colors: blue and green. We stayed at the Lucaya Resort which is one of the top ten resorts in Bahamas. This place is so secluded that it feels like we were the only ones on the island.
Aruba sits south of the hurricane belt just off the coast of Venezuela. This means that you can almost guarantee a suntan and no rain out, every day, of every week, all year long. The island only gets 20 inches of rain per year and is famous for its trade winds, it’s a wind surfer’s paradise, so even in the heat, it’s comfortable.
Angkor Wat is an ancient city in Cambodia that was the center of the Khmer empire that once ruled most of Southeast Asia. This cilvilazation went extinct, but not before building amazing temples and buildings that were reclaimed by the jungle for hundreds of years.
When we arrived in Vienna, we were in awe with so many magnificent and grand theaters, concert halls, and museums at every corner of this graceful and elegant city. In Vienna, music is literally in the air. Although there are concerts and operas performed in so many theaters and concert halls around the city every night, we chose to see the Vienna Mozart Orchestra with internationally renowned singers and soloists
Milan is the fifth-largest city in the European Union. Milan has something for everyone: world-class shopping and a thriving cultural scene. It’s set apart by its glamour and passions.
Begin your Milan exploration at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the oldest covered shopping arcade in town. It’s home to fashion giants such as Prada and Gucci.
Ubud is considered in many ways Bali’s cultural heart. Located in the cool mountains, just one hour’s drive north of the airport and the resorts of southern Bali, this traditional country town is home of one of Bali’s royal families.
I got a lot of questions about where I stayed in Ubud and here’s the answer: Dara Ayu Villas and Spa. Dara Ayu is only 10 minutes away from the famous Hanging Gardens.
I had visions of “Under the Tuscan Sun” in my head as I planned our getaway in Tuscan. Florence-the capital of Tuscan and the birthplace of the Renaissance is gorgeous but we are much more in love with the Tuscan countryside. The countryside is quite literally covered with vineyards and olive groves that give the rolling hills a deep green color with hints of golden as the sun glints off of the leaves. Just like in a movie!
