Everyone knows Greece from the sea, the beach and the small cozy villages. But have you ever even been in the midland of Greece? Here you find Zagoria, a beautiful mountainous region in the province of Epirus. In this area there are 46 small villages with a very authentic character through the houses, built with local slate.

This part of Greece is still little visited by tourists, so you’ll find a lot of authentic Greece where time sometimes really seems to stand still. Continue reading

Dream away: Amalficoast, Italy

Natural Arch - Capri, Campania, Italy

A place where I want to go on holiday once is the Amalfi coast in Italy. Small villages posted against the rocks. Cozy beaches. Dazzling winding roads to the next village. The delicious Italian food.

When I look at these pictures, I can only think we need to go out more in our beautiful country.

Barcelona #1, Spain

Barcelona, Spain. Remember walking on the concrete where all the palm trees stood. Summer 2013 was awesome!

What a great city. I myself have been here three times. I would actually not object to visit this beautiful, impressive and cultural city again.

What I did see during my three trips to Barcelona is too much to mention in a blog, so I decided to split it.
