This lovely island caters to any traveler’s desires from its astounding seaside to its medieval villages perched atop a hilltop. Unsure of where we wanted to spend most of our time, we allowed the sights of this beautiful island to guide our 8-day adventure.Read more

THE MALDIVES | VELASSARU ISLAND RESORT.
A friend once told me that one never forgets the colors of Maldives. It’s one of those magical places whose enchantment stays with you forever. At that time, I did not really understand what she meant. I was never crazy about visiting Maldives because I had the impression I would be bored there after a day or two—even if I was stuck on a beautiful island and staring at the magnificent blue ocean all day long.Read more

EXPAT IN THE PHILIPPINES | HIKING THROUGH MASUNGI GEORESERVE IN BARAS, RIZAL.
A week ago, I joined a group of friends in a fun and exciting “mini adventure” exploring Masungi Georeserve. I call it a “mini adventure” because you don’t really need to be an experienced hiker to be able to conquer this hike, but if you’re scared of heights you might want to come prepared.
ITALY | PORTO SANTO STEFANO AND PORTO ERCOLE IN MONTE ARGENTARIO, TUSCANY.
ARGENTARIO OSA VILLAGE
This summer, the boys and I spent a splendid week at Argentario Osa Village in Talamone. We couldn’t have chosen a better base from where to explore Monte Argentario and its neighboring towns.
ITALY | A WALK THROUGH THE CHARMING FISHING VILLAGE OF TALAMONE, TUSCANY.
This summer the boys and I spent a splendid week at Argentario Osa Village in Talamone. We couldn’t have chosen a better base to exploring Monte Argentario and its neighboring towns.
I was truly enamoured of Talamone. This charming fishing village in Maremma, Tuscany is a Jewel. We enjoyed taking evening strolls through the village’s narrow streets and stone houses all the way to the Aldobrandeschi fortress.
The fortress was built in the 13th century and stands on top of a rocky hill dominating the port and offering delightful panoramic vistas and gorgeous photo backdrops. Just under the fortress is a beautiful waterfront beach establishment called Bagno Delle Donne.
Talamone is also linked to Giuseppe Garibaldi, one of the greatest Italian generals that contributed to the Italian unification and the creation of Italy. En route to Sicily Garibaldi stopped over in Talamone to stock up on water and weapons.
ITALY | A DELIGHTFUL 24 HOURS IN ROME.
If you’ve been to Rome or at least know of its grandeur, then I’m sure you’re asking yourself how this title is even possible because indeed, 24 hours are not enough to even scratch the surface of Rome and its hidden gems.
But since I only had 24 hours for this visit, I simply had to make the most of it! Read more
