The most fantasy-fulfilling stretch of the fabled Riviera lies not in France, but just across the border in Italy between Genoa and Pisa. Says Rick Steves, the famous travel guides mogul. It’s pretty much since his “discovery” of these lands that they have become flooded by American tourists hungry for its charm. But really, what’s […]
Is it even possible? To take time out as a mom? And I’m not a mom to just any infant – I’m a mom to a breastfed little girl with whom we often co-sleep. She misses her mama after about 2 hours of being away. But I made it work. We made it work. I […]
Valletta in Malta was a place I was absolutely delighted by! Beautiful city center full of cafes, shops, friendly people and sunshine!
What a fantastic time in Madeira 🙂 Great walk, cable ride and fantastic lunch!!! Such a beautiful place 🙂 And I even got a flower from the owner of the restaurant we lunched in! 🙂
Really? Why does the ship even stop here? I know there’s the sea and a shopping street but you get that in about every port! At least the sea part 🙂 I am so unimpressed with the Canary Islands.
It’s amazing how much you can do and see in a new city in just 4 hours! I did a hop-on hop-off bus tour (not impressive), walk along Castillo street for some shopping and found some pretty beautiful things in Desigual and then had a huge plate of paella, that forced me to walk back […]
I am so unimpressed by the Canary Islands 😦 I really did imagine something spectacular but instead all I have seen is so unremarkable. I am still very happy I could experience this place but I would not recommend for holidays. There are so many more beautiful places in the world!
Yesterday we visited beautiful Cornwall – the south west tip of Great Britain famous for its beautiful green landscape and cream tea. The views were truly beautiful and I captured some of them on these photos: (Cornwall, Marazion, St. Ives, view from Marazion). But the tea! Oh please, the famous Cornish cream tea the guide […]
Today I visited Dublin on a very easy bus tour. We stopped at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which you can see on this photo I am very proud of 🙂 We stopped at Trinity College, the most prestigious university in Ireland and did a great city tour with commentary. One interesting thing the tour guide said […]
What a change after cruising the Caribbean! Finally a country full of history, culture, in which so many famous writers, economists and doctors were born and created their most famous works! Alexander Graham Bell, James Watt, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Adam Smith, Robert Louis Stevenson, James Simpson. As for the weather – we used both our sunglasses and umbrella! I […]
This is the 4th time I am crossing the Atlantic in this pregnancy! Twice by plane and twice by ship!!! I must say that cruising is so much better when it comes to the subject of time difference. You set your clock one hour backwards or forwards every day and arrive to your destination happy […]
After over 2 months in the U.S.A I am finally back in good old Europe with the first port of call being Ponta Delgada (Azores). We had a very nice walk around the old town and a pretty good local lunch too. I know we are still three full days of cruising away from continental […]
My baby’s first transatlantic cruise is taking place right now while she is still in my belly. Luckily the conditions are very smooth and I can follow my daily routine of writing, promoting, exercising, etc. My books tell me her ears are developed but I would be able to tell that even without my sources, […]
