I’ve visited the region twice now and still have the urge to go back and explore. If you’re planning a trip to Portugal, visiting Sintra is a must! Here’s everything…Read the Post

Keukenhof is one of the largest gardens in the world, with over 7 million tulips, hyacinth and daffodils planted each year. It’s located in the town of Lisse, which is home to…Read the Post
Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most famous castles in Europe. It’s nestled in the mountains of Bavaria near the charming town of Füssen, Germany. Commonly referred to as a ‘fairytale castle’, it’s even said to have inspired the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Here’s how to make the most of your visit to Neuschwanstein Castle, and why you should…Read the Post
