My favorite cities in Italy

I’ve been to Italy many times already. I love the people and the landscapes are so diverse that it seems like your driving into another country every other hour. And the food, oh mamma mia, the food is absolutely amazing. I have to say that I haven’t eaten that good in any other country, including my own. The cities are actually open air museums. Turn a corner, it doesn’t matter which one, and you’ll be mesmerized by what you see. Every time you go back to Italy you’ll get enchanted all over again. So here it is, a post about my favorite cities in Italy. One of my favorite European countries.

Things to do in beautiful Dalarna

Everybody knows Sweden. Part of Scandinavia. The land of the Vikings. All over the world people shop at IKEA and eat their meatballs and gravad lax. So it’s surprising to me that not more people visit this beautiful and diverse country. Sure, it’s not the cheapest destination, but that can’t be the reason, can it? Iceland is in the same price range as Sweden and is overrun by tourists year by year. Sweden deserves more visitors, so I hope this blog will lure you into visiting the Dalarna region.

Roadtripping through Thailand solo with kids

A lot of people with kids want to go on a roadtrip outside of their country or continent but aren’t sure if it’s a good idea. Will there be internet (preferably wifi), will the kids like the food, what’s the quality of medical care, is it safe enough for a family trip? They have loads of questions. But the bottom line is: if you want to do it and know your kids good enough to know that they can handle it (kids with certain special needs might need some extra attention or guidance during trips), then go for it! That also applies to single parents. You won’t regret it. Believe me.

Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik

A few weeks ago my friend JH and I went to Dubrovnik. That immediately brings me to my first tip: if you want to avoid visiting this beautiful town along with 10.000 others, but also have moderately good weather, you should go in April. It was still busy during the first weekend of April, but there wasn’t a cruise ship in sight and we didn’t have to wait in line for a table or any of the sights.

I will blog about the must-sees in Dubrovnik at a later time. This blog is meant for Game of Thrones fans or enthousiasts.
