    Burano and Murano in a day

    Venice is one of the most famous and aspired destinations in the entire world! Most tourists, however, attempt to visit this Italian gem as part of a crammed one week trip which includes at the very least Milan, Florence, and Rome as well. They will certainly say they have been to Venice, but can they really say they have experienced the beauty of this magical city and its lagoon? Searching online, I keep coming across forums where tourists on a tight schedule ask if, while in Venice, they could visit Burano and Murano in a day and whether they should spare some time to do so. Here’s my answer to…

    Unspoiled beaches and marine paradise: a trip to Zamami Island

    Any travel destination has its own unique charm to me so that wherever I go, I easily fall in love with anything I see. A bustling city, the remote and idyllic countryside, green and lush mountains, or a deserted beach far away from any sign of civilization. All these places are so different and yet, in their own uniqueness, they manage to touch my heart and make me feel like I’m one of the luckiest people on earth, just for being able to travel there. But despite my tendency to love every single place I visit, there is nothing that I love more than the pristine beauty of small islands.…

    Gamcheon Culture Village, Busan’s artistic neighborhood

    When I actually started thinking about a trip to Korea, what I had in mind was a quick weekend in Seoul. It only takes a couple of hours by flight from Tokyo to the Korean capital and with plenty of LCC offering flights at convenient hours and cheap fares, the thought of a weekend trip abroad was something I had been fantasizing for a while. So I booked a late flight (or should I say a super early flight since it was scheduled to take off at 1 am!!) from Haneda airport to Seoul Incheon and started gathering information about all the places I could visit in a bit more than…

    HOTEL COTE COUR: the Beijing stay of your dreams!

    I rarely post about hotels I’ve been to, but Hotel Cote Cour in Bejing is most definitely worth a great review! So why not writing one directly on my personal blog? Beijing offers an infinite number of accommodation options, from budget hostels to more luxurious hotels, and it is thus very easy to find the perfect place that fits your needs and travel style. When we picked Beijing for our next trip, we wanted to feel the city vibes of China’s capital, but at the same time, we didn’t want to miss the chance to experience a more traditional atmosphere which, in the case of modern cities, is often hidden…

    Beautiful Parks and Gardens in Tokyo!

    Tokyo, one of the biggest metropolis on earth and, with no doubt, the most populated one. Ads and huge tv screens anywhere, sparkling lights, skyscrapers, Shibuya’s famous scramble crossing, fast (not to mention punctual) bullet trains. These are only some of the images that likely cross people’s minds when they try to picture this modern city. It thus comes as a surprise to many that Tokyo is actually full of greeneries. Indeed, many beautiful parks and gardens can be found scattered around the city. These areas become the “sacred” place for both visitors and residents alike to take a break from the grey landscape of Tokyo’s architecture. Parks offer a…

    Best of Guam: 4-day getaway trip!

    Guam, one of the places I never thought I would find myself going to. And yet here I am on a 4-day getaway trip, lying on an idyllic beach, the crystal clear water of Tumon Bay in front of me. Words are not enough to describe how I’m feeling right now. If I had ever felt a bit stressed, now that feeling is long gone, leaving way just to an overwhelming sense of peace. I’m not surprised many, especially from Japan, China and South Korea, pick Guam as their escape destination, or even more, as their wedding destination. After all, it seems like being in a paradise on earth. Despite…
