CANNES & MONACO

After posting these pictures I will have to officially have to say goodbye to summer – and I really don’t want to do that 😦 However in this post, I’m finally sharing my photos from Monaco and Cannes. When I went on my trip to Nice, with my mum, we also took two days out of our stay in Nice and went to explore Monaco and Cannes. It was such a good decision! Monaco was an interesting and exciting experience. For the whole day there I was wondering how is it possible that so much wealth is stored in such a small place! I saw a 3 floor yacht with a helicopter parked at the top… like, really?! It was honestly the highlight of the day! My mum and I couldn’t stop laughing about it. In other news – I loved the architecture there, the tall buildings kind of resembled Hong Kong… I don’t know why but Monaco didn’t feel like it was in Europe. After a lot of walking and climbing we arrived at …

NICE, FRANCE

The first day in Nice was like a transportation to another dimension. It’s amazing what happens when for one second you take yourself out of your reality and disconnect from things, people and places you’re used to. Great adventures wait for you to get over your fear. Someone once told me that everything worth experiencing is found outside of your comfort zone, and as you grow up your comfort zone grows with you. It gets bigger and bigger every time you do something new and it is important to never stop trying to expand that circle. This summer I have realised that I am destined to live at a beach one day. I travelled to Cornwall and the South of France and never felt so connected, rooted and at peace than at a beach. It feels like It has been created just for me to see. Even though I only spent a few short days exploring the south of France I loved every second of it and felt incredibly grateful to be there. I remember …

48 Hours in Edinburgh – Part 2

Welcome to the second post about Edinburgh, I hope you enjoyed the previous one. We were much more lucky with the weather during out second day there. After falling asleep to the sound of rain we woke up to a clear sky and sunshine. Since the weather was so perfect that day was nothing stopping us, so we planned so many things and places to see that we didn’t get to visit the previous day. Needless to say, we over estimated our energy levels and the amount of hours in a day. My mum and I walked around from one end of the city to the other, stopping at places like Royal Yacht Britannia, Botanic Gardens and the National Museum. I must admit all of the views I saw that day were spectacular, but what overwhelmed me the most (in the best possible way) was the museum; it gave off some sort of heaven-like atmosphere, because it was such a grand building and the inside was painted white… it was just beautiful.

48 Hours in Edinburgh – Part 1

My second adventure of summer was a quick trip to Edinburgh with my mum –  2 days and 3 nights (two of which were spent on the coach). Despite the lack of sleep it was a fun adventure. Our first 24 hours were unfortunately limited due to the ‘traditional Scottish’ weather. We seeked shelter from the rain in cafes, galleries and museums, as our shoes soaked right through and I had to hide my camera underneath my coat to prevent it from also getting wet. After an hour or trying to keep it together, we have given up when we saw Primark. We immediately jumped on the opportunity to buy wellies and some dry leggins, after that we were once more ready to explore and not even the weather would stand in our way! My favourite part of that day, was finding a cosy cafe in the town centre, where we warmed up, drank coffee and just talked. During our everyday routines, sometimes we don’t even make the time to really talk to the people …

BRIGHTON TRIP

I still haven’t written about my trip to Brighton, and I really should’ve because it was such a weird experience. Don’t get me wrong the trip itself was really fun and it was nice to do something together with my friends that I haven’t seen since summer, but the whole of that day felt – like a dream, or a very strange deja vu. The last time I went to Brighton I was maybe 7 or 6. I was just a tiny me, running around the pebbles, holding my parents’ hands while they pretended to throw me in the air. I still have memories from that day. So when I went to Brighton, yet again (for the second time in my life), and I found the sea side… everything felt so weird, in slow motion nearly. It felt like I just walked into a dream or a parallel universe, and it was so beautiful. Here are some photos from that day. Travel Tips: If you’re planning to visit Brighton, visit it for one day (two …
