*NOTE:Unfortunately we are still in unusual times, and the COVID-19 regulations change rapidly. Please check here the latest information before making your journey to Ecuador.
Cuenca, is one of the most beautiful colonial cities in Ecuador, located in the highlands of Ecuador at about 2,560 m above sea level. This gem is surrounded by the Andes mountains, divided by the river Tomebamba next to the city center. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its many historical buildings and its historical importance as an agricultural and administrative center of Ecuador.
Venice is one of my favorite cities in Italy, and one of the world’s most romantic cities (before Paris). Its stunning architecture, unique bridges, colorful streets, the gondolas floating across picturesque canals. Ah, I will never stop loving the ‘City of Water’ Venice.
Although Venice is a small city, there is still so much to see. Most of people plan just few days to stay, therefore I have created a short list of my favorite experiences in Venice.
Perhaps the cutest and most instagrammable island, the Venetian lagoon Burano was first established by the Romans, famous for Burano lace and bold colored homes. Burano is 7 km (4 miles) from Venice, a 40-minute trip from Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) by a Venetian water bus/vaporetto.
The Yucatán Peninsula is more than a white-sand-beach exotic destination. This area has so much to offer, such as the unique and vibrant city Mérida. When I planned to visit Mexico, I definitely wanted to make a short trip to Mérida, which is the capital and largest city in Yucatan state in Mexico. Though it’s called “The White City” (named after its limestone buildings), Mérida has the kindest people, eye-catching colonial architecture, a unique heritage, charming museums, art galleries, great traditional Mexican food and many more.
One more adventure checked off my “Bucket List”. For me travelling rhymes with happiness and exploring new destinations makes my heart beat faster. That’s why my travel posts are special to me, because I love sharing my experience with you.
Last but not least, today I want to tell you everything about Bali and my personal favorite places where to stay, eat, shop as well as what to see and do in this beautiful tropical paradise. Some say this island is overrated, a paradise that has lost its way and getting dirtier every year. But really it has just devopleped transforming from a low-key hippie haven to a enormous soulful place, where you can stay smart but still find a barefoot vibe.
Since you can find everything online, travel booklets and destination brochures are long gone. Bali is loved by many travelers and holds a special place in so many hearts. Those traveling to Bali visit the island for many different reasons, and do things very differently to what I will try to recommend in this guide.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s „Eat, Pray, Love“ put Bali on the map as a single girl’s romantic „finding yourself“ destination. So if you are a devoted traveler and looking for a home, you might just consider dropping your bags for next several months. But overall, Bali is so much more. You can dress it up in accommodation or dress it down and still have a great experience, which is one of the main reasons why I love Bali.
“Traveler ask, not what this door is. The star that led you here is inscribed upon it. Enter here and leave behind – casting it off like a cloak – the hubbub of the outside world.” – Royal Mansour
Finally, I can share some more photos fromMarrakech with you. Here in Royal Mansour‘s pink-walled labyrinth of enchanting gardens filled with beautiful plants, made me feel like I am in a “1001 Nights” dream.
