Visit Ponza Island just off Italy’s Lazio region  (and close to Rome)

Italy offers a myriad of destinations. But during summer, there is one destination in particular that has been kept under the radar. A secret island located just off the Lazio coast, very close to Rome. It’s Ponza Island, the Island where real Italians vacation, where every Roman has been to at least once. It’s a secret escape with stunning beach coves, wow restaurants, great aperitivo spots and incredible sunsets.

Visit the beautiful Amsterdam with its picturesque canals

Amsterdam is the city where the sound of bike bells ringing replaces the sound of noisy traffic horns. It’s the city where the impossible is possible. The unique fairy-tale architecture, the charming lights reflecting on the canals in the evening, bike-riding in Vondelpark and having breakfast with poffertjes are just some of the reasons why this city gets me. A trip to Amsterdam should be on everyone’s bucket list!

Visit Budapest, the capital of Hungary

Shy in the winter and outgoing in the summer, Budapest is a destination that has recently started getting lots of attention. With its fairy-tale architecture, breathtaking views, green areas and intriguing history, it’s no wonder it couldn’t be kept a secret for much longer. During the winter, cozy up in Budapest’s Art Noveou cafes and warm up with hot cocoa or tea. While in spring and summer, stroll through the bridges and live a completely different experience with its beautiful bars along the Danube, breathtaking views and crazy festival in Margaret Island.
