Happy 2017! May this year bring you joy, laughter, and loads of travels of course:). We could safely say that 2016 was the year of travels and we could not have been happier to finish it with another trip. This time we spent New Year’s in Europe, briefly visiting lovely Strasbourg in France and enjoying the beauty of the Black Forest in Germany.
My knees hurt for days after the two treks in El Chalten, Patagonia the cutest little village surrounded by mountains also called The National Trekking Capital. But what an experience that was!
Visiting the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia, Argentina was the first WOW moment of our six months trip in South America. Before Patagonia, we had spent four weeks in Buenos Aires where we had a good time, but hardly comparable with the visual feast this part of the world offered us.
I remember we were in Ilha Grande, Brazil when we first started reading about Colombia, and amongst all the beauties featured in Lonely Planet, it was Cocora Valley in the Zona Cafetera that caught our attention. Looking back at our time in the country considered too dangerous to visit not long ago, Cocora Valley was the absolute highlight.
I’ve been fascinated with Colombia ever since I was a child. One of the things I wanted to do most was to walk through the coffee plantations, pick coffee beans, see how coffee was made, and although I’m not a coffee drinker, I wanted to taste the coffee. Salento proved to be the perfect place for this dream of mine to come true.
After four days of trekking in the jungle , Tayrona Park came right down from heaven. We spent two days sunbathing, taking naps in the hammocks, walking on the beach, and sipping on coconut water. Pure bliss!
This post is different from what you have been used to see here on the blog. I love to travel and would like to see the world, but it’s not my only passion. Fashion represents more for me than just clothes. It’s a way to express myself. And when expressing yourself verbally does not come as easy (simply because I’m not an outspoken person), speaking through your look is important. So this is not just about fabrics, textures, or shapes. It’s not even about brands. It’s about feeling confident, and feminine (in my case), and being ready to face the world.
After four days of trekking (44km) in the jungle, I was exhausted. The last day was especially difficult as it was the longest and most tiring one. The temperatures were high and so was the humidity. My feet were covered in blisters and my knees in pain. So, why all the effort? To discover The Lost City. Was it worth it? YES!
From bustling cities, a lively coastline and beautiful mountains, Romania has a lot to offer, Dracula’s castle included :). Although the country as a whole is still considered a hidden gem, the castle of the most famous vampire is not.
What a great surprise Copenhagen was. My first visit to a nordic country left me in complete admiration and awe for all things danish, including the beauty of its inhabitants :).
