Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy. I’m the type of person who needs to plan every trip. When it comes to Tuscany, there is no point in creating an itinerary. You will never stick to your plan. There are too many hidden spots along the way, waiting for you to discover. Make sure to make a note of the highlights and famous cities, but most of all – let Tuscany surprise you. It’s known for its wonderful landscapes, picturesque towns, exquisite food, traditional wines and lots of history. Sounds pretty good, right?  Cinque Terre This isn’t Tuscany yet, but wait for it – we’ll get there. They say that the villages of Cinque Terre are the most beautiful villages in Italy. I must say – I wasn’t quite sure about that. I think it’s a bit overrated and I wasn’t exactly excited – but that had everything to do with…

Everyone starts blogging these days. I know what you’re thinking – it’s like an infectious disease and there are too many of them. No one is waiting for another random blogger. Reason enough not to start. Well, what can I say? You’re wrong.  What is my place in this world? What is your place in this world? What is our place in the world of blogging? What makes us different? Every person is different. Every blogger is different. Everyone has a different opinion on certain things. Why? What are you writing for? Who are you writing for? Is there a specific reason? It’s a way out. A way to put words on paper. A way to share your thoughts with the world. You don’t want to share your thoughts? Fine, then don’t start blogging. You want to share your thoughts? Great, go for it. I always wanted it but I…

Have you ever felt like running away? I sometimes feel like running away, to start all over again. I want to pack my bags and leave. Book a ticket and never come back. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who has ever felt like this.  It’s not about running away because you can’t handle a certain situation. It’s about simply refusing to deal with it any longer. Certain situations are impossible to handle. At least, that’s what it seems like when you think too much. In the end, it will turn out to be just fine. I think too much. I overthink too much. I think about every insignificant detail about a situation. I think about the things that someone said. All different interpretations. Analyzing every word. I remember too much. Too many details. Too many things that I should forget. It makes it hard to find peace…

It’s February, which means it’s almost that time of the year again: carnival. When it comes to carnival in Europe, there is no better place to celebrate than Venice. Venice, a unique city with an Italian charm, a true gem in Northern Italy. It’s not just one of the most beautiful places in Italy, it’s also one of the most romantic places. I could say more,  I think it’s one of the most romantic places on the planet. It’s such a shame that this wonderful place tends to disappear due to the rising water level. Can you imagine Italy without Venice? I most certainly cannot. So what should you do? Book that ticket, grab your partner, and be prepared to spend all day walking hand in hand along the canals. Oh, and if you’re alone like me (or the best you could do are your parents or a friend), don’t…
